Antifa has had success, yes, like Mussolini’s Black Shirts and German National Socialist Brown Shirts had success, by taking control of the streets and physically stopping others from speaking. Antifa is profoundly at odds with American concepts of free speech. It is an enemy of Constitutional democracy, civil rights, and individual liberty. It inflates a miniscule group of actual Nazi and KKK types to justify its attempts to repress a wide range of speech. No one appointed Antifa to speak for the people: they don’t. They are self-appointed would-be dictators, who couldn’t win 2 percent of the vote for anything. We’re in no real danger from the small number of fascists. It is the so-called anti-fascists of Antifa we need to watch out for.
