Antifa is anti-fascist?

Yes, that's what they tell us, but these idiots are nothing more than re-branded anarchists who dress like ISIS terrorists, and terrorize and physically attack anyone who dares to hold an opinion different than theirs.

The next time you mentioned this group, you might want to use a different spelling: antiFA (that's anti First Amendment).

Allowing this guy to explain his batshit, bigoted views in a fairly well-read regional publication is frankly irresponsible. Who cares about the esoteric crusader notions behind his loony toons ideology? He's a dangerous, bigoted fascist trying his best to instigate violence. Nuff said.

As someone who's experiences are mentioned in this article, and as an aspiring journalist myself, this article is disappointing.

Congratulations, you revealed the identity of someone who did not wish for their government name to be attached to social justice and activism, and glorified the Cleveland Chainmail Fascist.

You just made this idiot feel special and validated his presence harassing people in CLE. nice

Re: “A Man Who Dresses in Medieval Garb and Walks Around Downtown is a Strange Ranger. But is He Dangerous?

Happy for the criticism, @ArthurBlakeyII. What questions would you want answered? Or what sort of research do you think would have enhanced the piece? The biggest narrative question for me (and for a lot of people, I thought) was: Who is this guy? That's what I tried to answer. I'm sensitive to the idea that giving hateful speech a platform is bad. But it's also important, for me as a reporter, to hear his perspective, especially if I don't agree with it.

@ClevelandObscene. I hope questions like the one you referenced aren't misunderstood. In our conversation, Levie was describing "groups of young men" in the same coded language the some folks use to talk about African-Americans. I wanted to be absolutely clear about what he was talking about.

The person that had their tweet featured is ridiculous. They can't even speak proper English and want to decide the fate of someone else, LOL. Anifta should be the one "taking outta the gene pool", LOL.

Seems like a lot of this article has not been thoroughly researched and much is opinionated, also by giving this guy a platform to his hatred and his attacks on gays, Muslims and blacks. This sounds more like a promotion of the man than it is an exposure. Where are your priorities Scene?

This guy has literally physically attacked people, and you're not only giving him a platform, you're assassinating the character of people trying to stop him from physically attacking gays and muslims. I've always expected better from you, Vince Grzegorek.

"He described questionable interactions he'd had with "groups of young men" who he said "looked like they were up to no good."

"Are you talking about black people?" Scene asked"

You people are despicable.

Any suggestion that Antifa is dangerous is ridiculous. They get bad press, but their entire purpose is to fight fascism.

An article about Antifa and how dangerous they are might be more appropriate.
