The Merriam Webster definition of Antifa is as follows,

“a person or group actively opposing fascism”

The same dictionary defines fascism, as follows,

“a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

I am alive today because of Antifa. My kids are alive today because of Antifa. My parents were born in Poland, in the 1920’s. My wife’s parents were born in Italy in the 1930’s. Both countries fell under fascist rule, Hitler and Mussolini. If it wasn’t for the Allies, otherwise defined as Antifa, both countries might still be under fascist rule and both sets of parents would have been subjugated to the horrors of fascist rule.

I am not going to bring politics into this chirp today, but a comparison can easily be made between the Antifa of WW2 and the Antifa of today, both fighting fascist autocratic rule.

For those who sacrificed their lives in WW2, the free world thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.
