    But not part of the Antifa movement? They are two separate things, similar to alt right vs conservatives. Definitely differences there.

    Wow... it's nice to see that some are starting to make distinctions.

    I would note that there are more factions than that on the right, but this is a start.

    Isn't being vocal being confrontational? If you were non-confrontational, you wouldn't confront them — i.e. show up in Boston.

    Vocal but non-confrontational to me means yelling at your television. If a man protests and there is no one there to hear it, does it do any good?

    I am quite familiar with the Antifa movement as I knew someone who was a member. Their goals and motivations are not the same as the general left. They are the far far left and want anarchy. Even Bernie Sanders was too moderate for them. lol

    I wouldn't say so. Counter protesting anything really, is quite common. Verbal goings back and forth is the norm. Its when the sides began committing acts of violence. Many protests have had many counter protesters and it never became violent. Boston for example, had the same alt right rally back this past May and there was no violence whatsoever.

    I don't think one has to be violent to be confrontational. But if there is a march for something like the preservation of the white race and white culture (or whatever), and other people find that to be extremely objectionable, I would hope they are confrontational. Otherwise they are really just joining the march.

    Everyone I met was well versed and pleasant in conversation. It's very expensive so I was forced to find a city for the poor.

    They might have enjoyed it even more if they knew what the Nazis were up to, besides just starting a war.

    Where's the "I should get run over by a car" option?
