Dartmouth Professor Says Antifa is Much More Than Just About Antifascism

Mark Bray
Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, discussed his book Thursday evening in San Francisco at the radical independent bookstore, City Lights Bookstore.

Bray is an Associated Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth's Gender Research Institute. He is a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in Modern Europe and was one of the organizers of Occupy Wall Street.

He spent most of the evening discussing the history of the Antifa movement in battling fascism and read a chapter from his book on the development of the Antifa movement in London by two Jews who attacked fascist speakers by knocking down their podiums and by creating scuffles with those who had stopped to listen to the fascists. He seemed to suggest that violence against fascist speakers was justified.

And although, he mostly discussed the Antifa movement as countering fascists, during the question and answer period, he did make clear that "Antifa is more than an anti-fascist movement, It is anti-capitalist."



  1. Anti-capitalist??? Then I would think it'd be OK for someone to have swiped all of his books and taken a bat to his knee.

    I have a idea for the otherwise hopeless Libertarian Party. Promote a loud plank which demands that no government funds ever go to fund Cultural Marxists, especially through government subsidies to colleges or college loans. Plus, demand that the government and courts declare Cultural Marxism to be a religion, to be treated just like putting a manger scene in the public square.

  2. The fascists and communists always fight like brothers because they are.

  3. The "Gender Research Institute"? I guess in a society with innumerable and multiplying genders, there is demand for an institute to try to find and catalogue them all. I don't suppose they'll make Jordan Peterson a Visiting Fellow.

  4. Huh... and I thought Antifa was about anything but anti-fascism.
