Liberal scholar and progressive icon Noam Chomsky has some harsh words for the violent alt-left group Antifa and the mainstream Democrats who support them.
“As for Antifa, it’s a minuscule fringe of the Left, just as its predecessors were,” Chomsky told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. “It’s a major gift to the Right, including the militant Right, who are exuberant.”
The riots between pro-Trump supporters and self-described anti-fascists (Antifa) protesters in Berkeley, California last week drew some media attention. Police, who for the most part stood down during the riots, despite the use by the black-clad Antifa group of explosive devices, made tens of arrests.
