Antifa (which stands for anti-fascist) groups have become well-known of late for attacking pro-Trump rallies and events.
They have, however, been involved for decades in attacking groups that they deem ‘fascist’. They’re not about peace, they’re about beating people up and anarchy/communism.
They carry black flags symbolizing anarchy, dress all in black with masks or covering on their faces.
The reason is to look similar and remove distinguishing features that might help identify them when they commit crimes like beating people up.
These particular antifa showed up to ‘protest’ an alt-right speaker at Auburn University.
But the Auburn, Alabama police were not having any of that nonsense. Watch the anarchists have a hissy fit when the police made them unmask.
Some altercations after police demanded Black Bloc members remove their hoodies and masks.

Some places like Alabama have ‘anti-mask’ laws that prevent you from wearing a mask in public. The original reason? To deter the KKK. Karmic that it’s being used against these people who act as a mob to attack people.
While there were some scuffles at the event, the police managed to shut them down quickly, showing Berkeley how a police department is supposed to perform.
So props to the Auburn PD for the unmasking and for holding these goons in check!
