    The name is Fallout inspired.

    That name better befits the Antifa Furs who are the actual destroyers of the convention.

    ANTIFA? No shit.

    They call themselves "anti-fascists", but are clearly fascists in their words, and their actions. More walking ironic contradictions is hard to find. BLM and SJW's are hard competition, though.

    Shouldn't we say it rather actually had something a great deal more to do with the con chair's prior child-sex convictions (you know, parents took their children to this convention), Sovereign Citizen kookiness and Federal tax fraud, general paucity of convention committee wisdom and judgement, and, oh yeah, a posse of utterly tone deaf people who think it's cool to fetishize Hitler and/or the German National Socialists of yore?

    Really, this convention died because of a profound lack of common sense, character, taste, and integrity in its leadership. But I've seen you write phone books of defense for this elsewhere online while stating "TL;DR" at others' explanations as to just why this situation was so screwed up in the first place, and so I suppose trying to put a finer point on things with you would be misspent time. You're just not interested in what the reasonable people have to say about it, and you seem completely transparent to me.

    I mean hey, at least furries are featured in Rolling Stone now? Yay? :\
    Also I admit I LOL'd at this part:

    Miller [...] reached out to actual actual neo-Nazis via online forums. "I told them I was a furry and they said, 'What the fuck is this shit?'" says Miller. "They found out 60 percent of furries are gay males and told me, 'Get the fuck out of here.'"

    Wish I could say the concept of "furry Nazis" surprises me in the least, but literally nothing does anymore. Damn Nazis be everywhere these days. :p

    A little something about this Deo character. She clams to be the victim about receiving a threat from the con owner after she was doxxed. In reality, she received a DMCA letter that detailed here violations (threatening to punch people) after she willingly filled out the information to sign up at the convention earlier (which she wasn't going to attend anyway this was found out after the threat on twitter). Speaking of threats, remember the guy who said he'd bring a gun to the convention? Turns out he wasn't a furry or a furry raider to begin with. The fact that Deo lied and got triggered over someone who had no connections to fandom is laughable.

    Now about the furry raiders. From what I heard they sound like edgycunts and not whatever commie furs paint them as. I personally don't care what political movement you choose to LARP as, but this whole "PunchaNazi" meme has to end. regardless of what you think about "edgelords" or le ebul rightwingers, your an idiot if you think its justified to shut down a con all because you were prohibited from punching people. Its getting to the point to when we might see people being attacked at cons for having different opinions/ideals.

    If you really think shutting down the con was just about the Raiders or the threats, you need to do more research.

    The con got shut down because they let a convicted sex offender with sovereign citizen affiliations sit on their board and draft bizarre cease-and-desist letters for them while they dodged federal taxes. They dug their own grave through incompetence. The fact that the "Richard Spencer getting decked" meme and block reservations by a tone-deaf edgelord clique were involved just makes the whole situation even more surreal and lurid.

    ...I feel like I said all this already. Does having a cold give you déjà-vu?

    ANTIFA's getting their asses handed to them. Go check out the shit that went down in UC Berkeley.

    Was fun watching them inciting to violence, and when it first starts, get their asses handed to them. Fun shit!

    Can you into detail?, that sound's very funny.

    Anti-fascists are actually pretty cool when it doesn't come to extremes. I would say it's like feminism - a generally benevolent and forward-thinking movement that gets a bad rep due to vocal minority of unpleasant people within it .з.

    (those people you've probably meant by that are not very cool, though, so, yeah, it's not cool, don't want to be like those uncool people .u. )

    Long story short:

    People held a free speech event/rally held by I think was Lauren Southern and someone else at UC Berkeley, ANTIFA shows up, starts a fight, throing M80's into groups of people, throw bottles and other crap, and get their asses handed to them, despite being the aggressors. Once the people attending the event/rally decided to defend themselves, ANTIFA got beaten up hard.

    Anti-fascist. More like ANTI-First Amendment.

    Their ideals, words and actions don't match up. At all.

    So far, their actions, shown on hundreds of videos all over, are that of violent Left-wing fascists. This isn't some fringe group inside ANTIFA. This IS ANTIFA.

    Part of being a fascist is suppressing anything and anyone you don't agree with, through terror if necessary. The ends justify the means.
    www.wordnik.com: fascism - definition and meaning

    And so far, the only ones who want to suppress their opposition, through terror and/or violence if necessary, is ANTIFA. BLM and SJW's in the same boat, with feminists only being verbally abusive, alongside attempting to literally get people fired, simply for disagreeing with these lunatics. Go check out Gregory Allan Elliot and thunderfoot if you don't believe me.

    "The fascists of the future will be anti-fascists". Some people say Winston Churchill said this, but I doubt it.

    Welcome to UC Berkeley. I've got a plethora of other videos as well, from both Left-wing and Right-wing independent journalists.

    ANTIFA's a joke. Whatever credibility they may have had some time ago before they started being violent thugs is long gone, due to their actions. Setting people on fire, looting and pillaging stores, setting cars on fire, attacking police with everything from stones to molotov cocktails, you name it.

    I think you're oversimplifying the movement quite a bit. The thing is, there are many different groups, passive or extreme, pacifistic or violent, etc - in fact, quite a few anti-fascist groups were formed as a result of violence and extremism, a reaction to it. What you see on the news or trending YouTube vids are extreme, overblown examples of anti-fascism, mainly because peaceful meetings and acts of decency don't make for very interesting stories - you don't hear much about groups like NAAR initiating awareness-raising campaigns, or German groups successfully (and non-violently) blocking out Neo-Nazi marches for example. ANTIFA by itself stands as a shortened variation on the word "anti-fascist" - nothing more, nothing less, and you don't even need to be in a particular group to be an outspoken anti-fascist, really. In that context, what you're trying to say is "Everybody who stands up against fascism sucks eternally, no questions".
    Claiming that the vid you posted above is one and only truthful representation of the movement is like saying that Tyra Banks episode is a truthful representation of furry community - it's understandable to think like that, but only if you're not interested in the topic enough to do proper research outside of a bunch of pre-filtered media coverage (which is a kind of behavior you usually advocate against)
