Characters like Spencer Sunshine and Alexander Reid-Ross are considered to be the intellectual leadership of the Antifa. For this reason, it is a great thing that the likes of Sunshine and Reid-Ross are currently steering the “antifascist” left toward the Democratic National Committee line on most issues: i.e. anti-Trump hysteria, anti-Russian hysteria, anti-Syrian hysteria, watering down criticisms of Israel, upgrading criticisms of Iran, bashing Israel critics like Norman Finkelstein while ignoring Saudi apologists like Linda Sarsour, and creating a wedge on the far Left between the “antifascists” and the “anti-imperialists” like Workers World, Party of Liberation and Socialism, Caleb Maupin, and the Green Party. The long term effect of this will likely be to discredit the Antifa as any kind of genuine opposition force in US politics. That will be of tremendous benefit to those of us who wish to see this neo-Maoist element purged from far Left politics. No doubt there will eventually be an Antifa Caucus in the Democratic Party, and maybe Sunshine and Reid-Ross can eventually become contributors to the New Republic as well. Keep up the good work, guys.

So wait, someone's telling me that Russia backed an illiberal left-right campaign to disrupt North Atlantic alliances and encourage the far right?? Good thing that's not a running theme in current events or anything… https://t.co/ThNQPSegtW

Russian propaganda obsessively links slavery in Libya to the ouster of Qaddafi despite the fact that most slave markets r in territory controlled by the Russian/Egyptian proxy Haftar. When evidence of human trafficking was presented at the UN, only Russia questioned its validity https://t.co/Jbkq9k9SXf
