They kill innocents - Maddox121

I know some people who supported Antifa, and their ideas were questionable. Essentially (this particular person's) ideas were that you should basically stop anyone from spreading their ideas or speaking their mind if it was communism or things of that such. This person believed that if you had right winged ideas, they should be able to stop you from protesting, organizing groups, etc. - EliHbk
