Anti-Fascism, also known as Antifa, is a non-quadrant but typically left-wing political ideology and movement centered around combating Fascism and most ideologies similar to them by any means necessary, including deplatforming them through use of violence and intimidation. He is close friends with most variants of leftism, both libertarian and authoritarian, so long as they share the goal of eliminating fascism. Despite what many people believe, Anti-Fascism is not a group or an organization, but rather a political movement. While people from all quadrants can be anti-fascist, the term Anti-Fascist itself is usually used by leftist ideologies.

Supporters of the Anti-Fascist movement are a range of Leftist ideologies such as Marxism-Leninism, Democratic Socialism, and Anarcho-Communism.

History

Burma

  • Aung San was a Burmese politician, independence activist, revolutionary, Myanmar Armed Forces, and is considered the Father of the Nation of modern-day Myanmar. Aung San was devoted to ending British rule in Burma and founded and participated in many Burmese political groups and movements to achieve his goal of Burmese independence. He joined the Thakin Society in 1938, working as its general secretary, and founded both the Communist Party of Burma and the Burma Socialist Party.

Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, Aung San fled Burma and went to China in search of foreign support for Burmese independence. While in China he was recruited by Japanese Army officials, who promised support and that Burma would be incorporated into the "Greater East Asia-Co Prosperity Sphere." Aung San recruited a small core of Burmese revolutionarieter known as the Thirty Comrades, which included future dictator Ne Win and left for Japan. During the Japanese occupation of Burma, he served as the minister of war in the Japan-backed State of Burma led by Dr. Ba Maw.

As the tide turned against Japan, Aung San and some of his forces switched sides to the Allies to fight against the Japanese. After World War II, he negotiated Burmese independence from Britain in the Aung San-Attlee agreement. He served as the 5th Premier of the British Crown Colony of Burma from 1946 to 1947 and led his party, the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League, to victory in the 1947 Burmese general election. Aung San never got to see his vision of an independent Burma come true as he and most of his cabinet were assassinated shortly before the country became independent. It's broadly believed that Aung San and his comrades' assassination was ordered by the British to maintain unofficial control of their former colony.

Schools of Thought

Fantifa

Fantifa (Feministische Antifa) is an umbrella term for a branch of the Antifa movement centered on the focus of women and feminist ideas. The Fantifa movement is primarily Anarcho-Communist and Anarcha-feminist.

Historical instances of Fantifa appear in the Rote Frauen und Mädelbund (1925-29) which is the women's branch of the German organisation Roter Frontkämpferbund, along with the Women's Antifascist Front of Yugoslavia (1942-1953) and the Spanish group Mujeres Libres (1936-1939)

Regional Tendencies

Italian Partisanism/Italian Resistance

The Italian resistance movement (the Resistenza italiana and la Resistenza) is an umbrella term for the Italian resistance groups who fought the occupying forces of Nazi Germany and the fascist collaborationists of the Italian Social Republic during the Second World War in Italy from 1943 to 1945. As an anti-fascist movement and organisation, La Resistenza opposed Nazi Germany, as well as Nazi Germany's Italian puppet state regime, the Italian Social Republic, which was created by the Germans following the Nazi German invasion and military occupation of Italy by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS from September 1943 until April 1945 (though general underground Italian resistance and resistance groups to the Fascist Italian government began even prior to World War II).

Ideologically speaking, many Italian partisans believed mainly in various forms of leftism, especially Communism, Socialism, and Anarchism. Some others, however, believed in forms of Republicanism and Liberalism. There were also Loyalists to the House of Savoy and Christian movements included in La Resistenza

Polish Home Army

The Polish Partisan movement is a Polish anti-fascist resistance movement against the genocidal totalitarian colonial regime of Nazi Germany. It participated in the famous Warsaw Uprising and fought relentlessly against the Nazis. It initially wanted to collaborate with the USSR’s Red Army to fight the Nazis. However, the Red Army never came. The uprising eventually failed after 63 days. A surrender pact was signed between the Nazis and the resistance leaders. The resistance members were subsequently deported to Nazi concentration camps.

The USSR conducted the Katyn Massacre in 1940 against Polish military officers and civilians following the invasion of Poland in 1939 as part of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact under the instruction of Lavrentiy Beria. The Soviet Union was utterly distrustful of the Polish Partisans, partially due to the prior actions of the USSR. After the failure of the Warsaw Uprising and the success of the Red Army’s advance in Poland, the uprisers and their leaders were killed, imprisoned, and deported to Siberia by the NKVD after the USSR liberated Poland from Nazi Germany. After the Soviet suppression of the Polish Partisans, the radical anti-communist resistance movement Cursed Soliders was formed to oppose the Soviet occupation of Poland.

Anti-Germanism

The ‘Anti-Germans’ are a strand of Anti-Fascism that can be found predominantly in Germany and Austria. As the name suggests, they are extremely anti-German/Nationalist, to the extent that they even uncritically praise the controversial Allied bombings of Nazi Germany during the Second World War- as exemplified by their slogan ‘ Bomber Harris do it again!’ (Referring to the WW2 head of the British Royal Air Force Bomber Command, Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris). As such, Anti-Germans can be seen as the German equivalent of Anti-Japaneseism.

Alongside their extreme Anti-German Nationalism, the Anti-Germans can be most distinguished from other Anti-Fascists by their support for Israel. In contrast to most modern Anti-Fascists (Who view Israel as an imperialist or even fascist state), Anti-Germans view Anti-Zionism as Anti-Semitism, and have accused ‘Anti-Imperialist’ Anti-Fascists in Germany of supporting ‘Fascist’ and Anti-Semitic Arab/Islamist Governments and movements in order to oppose Zionism. Anti-Germans also opposed the NATO bombing of Serbia as the Serbs were also seen as historical victims of Nazism alongside the Jews.

Personality

Anti-Fascism will do anything in his power to fight against fascist ideologies and doesn't take no for an answer. He believes in punching Nazis first, and debating them never. When he gets called a domestic terrorist, he just laughs. Tends to punch first and ask questions later. Also is prone to break the law in a very violent way. He sees himself as the true left unity and often tries to make auth and lib left work together, but usually ends up pissing off both groups and mostly hangs out with Socialism.
