Teen Vogue published an uncritical “Antifa explainer” Wednesday, which glorified the violent groups and explained to their young audience what they can also do “in their own lives to stop fascism” and President Donald Trump.
The interview was with Dartmouth College historian Mark Bray, who is the author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook. In the first question, the professor describes the militant leftist groups as “a pan-radical-left politic, or activity of militant self-defense against the far right.”
Bray told Teen Vogue.: “Antifa grows out of a larger revolutionary politics that aspires toward creating a better world.”
In response to a question about Antifa violence, Bray very intensely downplays the severity — completely justifying their antics by once again claiming that it is done as a means of “self-defense as a preemptive measure” against some sort of future threat from “white supremacists” or “fascists.”
“They refuse to give white supremacists and fascists the benefit of the doubt that their organizing will not at some point result in attacks on vulnerable communities. If necessary, if other methods of stopping them do not work, then confronting them and forcing them to stop is part of the repertoire,” Bray told Teen Vogue.
His response completely ignores the reality of the situation. From pepper spraying young women for attempting to attend a Milo Yiannopoulos speaking engagement, attacking Trump supporters with bike locks, or throwing urine on right-wing personalities that they disagree with — Antifa’s violent antics have been a far-cry from “self defense.” Even when they are attacking people with beliefs that would indeed lead to violence if enacted — those people do not hold positions of power, nor are their beliefs or words a danger to anyone.
Bray went on to discuss the incident at UC Berkeley where Antifa rioted causing over $500,000 in damage to the area surrounding the campus to successfully prevent Yianopoulos from speaking. He defended the violence, arson, and general chaos by stating that “these kinds of events often serve as points of recruitment for far-right groups and help to embolden and mobilize students and community members who carry out their violence later on.”
When asked about the difference between anti-Fascism and being Antifa, Bray explained that Antifa, unlike the bigger tent of anti-Fascists, is generally socialists. However, he urged the teenage readers of the magazine to look to Antifa for inspiration.
“Whether or not people agree with everything anti-fascists do, one of the greatest lessons from the anti-fascist tradition is to focus on looking for ways people can stand in solidarity with each other across tactical and strategic differences of opinion,” Bray stated. “I think that we should all have an investment in fighting back against white supremacy and fascism, regardless of what our politics are.”
The Teen Vogue interviewer then asked Bray what their readers can do in their own lives to stop fascism. Though the interview began by discussing “Nazis” he now switched to resisting the President of the United States.
“We all have a role to play in the everyday anti-fascism of not allowing Trump and the alt-right to roll back generations of social progress. That’s something everyone can do, no matter who they are, simply by taking a stand in their everyday life,” Bray stated.
While the interview questions and answers referenced the tragic and unnecessary death of a young woman in Charlottesville multiple times, there was no critique or examples given of specific political violence from the militant left.
Teen Vogue recently faced backlash after they published a how-to explainer on having anal sex.
“This is anal 101, for teens, beginners and all inquisitive folk,” author Gigi Engle wrote in Teen Vogue’s “A Guide to Anal Sex.” The original version of the story included nothing about engaging in safe sex — but was later edited to urge their teenage readers to use condoms.
Teen Vogue defended the article by calling concerned parents “homophobic.”
“The backlash to this article is rooted in homophobia,” Phillip Picardi, the magazine’s digital editorial director, wrote on Twitter. “It’s also laced in arcane delusion about what it means to be a young person today.”
WAHHHH: Georgia Election Official Whines Over Growing Anger Against Officials Signing Off on Fraud
What a crybaby.
Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, released a whiny rant on Tuesday in which he lamented over the anger that is building against state Republican officials who are doggedly preventing electoral irregularities from being investigated.
“It’s all gone too far. All of it,” the Georgia election worker said. “Joe DiGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA, to be shot.”
“A 20-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose saying they should be hung for treason because she was transferring a report on batches,” he added.
This bum is calling for President Donald Trump to stop his quest to root out election fraud because of the hurt feelings of these snowflake bureaucrats.
“It has to stop! Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop! We need you to step up, and, if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some,” the angry little man said.
He whined about the pressure that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is receiving after becoming a nationally-reviled figure for stopping inquiry into Georgia’s corrupt electoral process.
“This is elections. This is the backbone of our democracy, and all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this. I can’t begin to explain the level of anger I have right now over this,” the triggered coward said. “And every American, every Georgian, Republican or Democrat alike, should have that same level of anger.”
He ended by blaming President Trump for his state’s own corrupt farce while calling for him to stop his quest to overturn the steal in order to protect culpable officials from imaginary violence.
“You have the rights to go through the courts. What you don’t have the ability to do, and you need to step up and say this, is stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone’s going to get hurt. Someone’s going to get shot, or someone’s going to get killed, and it’s not right,” he concluded.
His entire beta male rant can be seen here:

Sterling’s extreme cowardice is laughable, but his entitlement and arrogance is absolutely nauseating. The Founding Fathers would have certainly been much more radical toward vote stealers than President Trump and his supporters have been, by a wide margin.
Big League Politics has reported about the sad debacle in Georgia, which has disenfranchised Republican voters in the state unlike anything before:
A Fulton County, Georgia woman is describing handling a “pristine” batch of ballots that were marked “98%” of the time for Joe Biden in election recount duties, describing the suspicious phenomenon in a sworn affidavit.
Susan Voyles identifies herself as a participant in Georgia’s post-election recount in the affidavit, filed in litigation against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger by Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood.
Voyles describes seeing ballots that differed considerably from the other ballots she was entrusted to count in the remix.
Voyles describes the batch of ballots as unusual in their texture and level of handling, and that she estimates 98% of them were cast for Joe Biden. Voyles even speculates that these ballots could’ve been processed through a ballot-marking device!
Voyles earlier described election recount supervisors as tasking them to process ballots in a “selective” fashion. Boxes of absentee ballots were signed by no one, without markings one might expect the Georgia Secretary of State to outfit absentee ballots with.
Another witness describes viewing election workers count 500 straight ballots for Joe Biden, all of which were marked with perfect black bubbles.
Trump and his supporters must not yield an inch, now that these crooked officials are feeling the heat. They are making major headway in pushing back against the steal, and the bad guys are getting frightened as a result!
