With the ‘American situation’ growing more extreme and desperate; and with the recent Russian and American Right attack on the so-called antifa, I thought it would be a good idea to review the American far Left, because we’ll definitely be seeing more of them. And although I’ve stated our position on it in the past, we’ll re-state it.
First of all, the Leftist who wear all black do so as a tactic they learned from their European cousins. It’s a protest tactic that makes them harder for the authorities to identify– it’s a tactic, not an organization identifier. So, for example, you may well see anti-globalists anarchists wearing all black; you may see antifa, or anti-fascists, wearing all black, you may see Anonymous, the hacker group, wearing all black. The all black uniform is a tactic usually employed by the far or militant left.
