Reactionary centrism is an ideological stance that isn’t really centrist at all.

How Antifa Broke The Alt-Right


Antifa has been so effective at disrupting the gatherings of like-minded monsters that the monsters gave in to their natural inclination of infighting that’s always kept them from uniting. Antifa has also made it dangerous, socially and financially, to openly be a white nationalist and even more dangerous to get together and look for people to attack.
