I'm sure at this point most adults have heard of "Antifa."
For an unadulterated look at the people who claim to be anti-fascist and championing our country, view this:
Does Antifa know what Fascism is? | Interviewing Proud Boys Protesters at Trump Tower
I wouldn't expect anyone to watch the entire twenty-seven minutes of this sh** show. But it would be wise to take a good look, regardless of your political leanings, and absorb what is happening right before our very eyes.
Yes, we are living in 2019. The most advanced civilization in the history of
the planet. A population that is experiencing the greatest wealth,
abundance, freedom and opportunity in history.
And this is what some of us choose to do with our lives?
From a dispassionate standpoint, as long as Antifa's worst antics continue at a relatively low frequency, they will remain little more than a circus attraction and a cautionary tale of how not to behave in a civil society.
But, if they keep taking to the streets and acting aggressive and obnoxious instead of peacefully protesting, there will surely come a day when the wrong person is in the crowd, believes he or she has nothing to lose, and has sufficiently fed himself or herself with an infuriating, long term video stream of these kinds of twisted confrontations. Forget reactionary groups like the Proud Boys; the mortal carnage by a solitary, mentally unstable malcontent will make Proud Boys fisticuffs seem like Sesame Street.
The title of this essay is referring to the phenomena we've all come to recognize from the Left: attributing the conservative sectors they hate with the very traits the Leftists themselves possess, and accusing conservatives of committing the very infractions against freedom the Left are committing by censoring speech, intimidation via social media, using legal pressure to cow everyone into accepting things that some individuals do not find acceptable, and of course, the now well known examples of Antifa physically harming people who disagree with them.
The two fellows who asked for Elad's personal information, along with the cameraman's, are obviously attempting to frighten them. Whether or not they successfully dox, and potentially harass, these members of the press is almost beside the point. The craven nature of hiding behind a mask and/or computer is evident. They see themselves as revolutionaries, but their actions are those of domestic terrorists in a free country.

A "point of privilege":
These miscreants apparently have never experienced
any genuine danger. If they keep this aggressive,
disrespectful behavior up, they're going to start eating pavement, steel
and lead. Then, and only then, will the remaining ones admit the error of
trying to intimidate reasonable people by threats, doxing and violence.
At the end of it all, for all the sadness of their needless passing,
the knowledge that they created their own fate will be clear to anyone who
watched all this nonsense transpire thanks to the reporters they tried to silence.
