What Does Antifascism Look Like Today?
Former president Donald Trump recently enjoyed dinner with avowed fascist-white supremacist Nick Fuentes and antisemite Kanye West. Trump, who has announced he will run again for the nation’s highest office, and whose Twitter account has been reinstated, ushered in the greatest wave of fascism in the United States in the past half-century.
Fascism is at this nation’s doorstep and to fight it, we need an antifascist movement, which, according to expert Shane Burley, must “confront violence, both structurally and ideologically, in an effort to unseat its very foundations.”
