Reader Opinion: Pumping poison

I just finished a Breitbart article about Walmart selling antifa clothing that "will allow you to express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations and people from the right (fascism). It comes in 13 different colors, all made in Mexico. Promoting the group whose activities were formally classified by the Obama Administration as "domestic terrorist, violence" as early as April 2016.

The Breitbart article goes on to describe antifa's, or anti-fascist, origins from German Communist Party street fighters. I recall the Trump rally at the Capitol Rotunda this summer where Antifa freaks physically and verbally attacked Trump supporters, threw fireworks and damaged the rotunda itself. Several arrests were made including VP candidate Tim Kaine's son. I remember the fires and destruction to the Berkeley campus. The people that make up antifa are cut from the same cloth as the corrupt system that allowed Kate Steinle's death to go unpunished. I would no more allow a Swastika in my house as I would an antifa T-shirt. Stop pumping this poison into our children's heads
