Antifa might be the most detestable of the leftist “protest” groups. The violence of its “protests,” the way the violence it leads is planned rather than spontaneous, its smearing of anyone with which it disagrees as a “fascist”, and the hatred it so obviously holds for free speech makes it a major threat to civilized society and detestable as an organization.
In case you needed more evidence of that, video has resurfaced from a 2019 Antifa “protest” in Canada, during which an elderly woman attempting to use the sidewalk and cross the street was harassed by Antifa goons calling her “Nazi scum” and who refused to get out of the street and let her pass.

According to the Daily Mail, which reported on the incident when it occured in 2019, the Antifa “protesters” became a center of controversy once again when they blocked the path of the elderly woman and a similarly aged man with her, screaming at them and verbally harassing them.
The woman and man were slowly crossing the street in Hamilton, Ontario, near Mohawk College, when the Antifa goons harassed them and refused to let them cross the sidewalk.
The Antifa goons were there to protest eople’s Party of Canada (PPC) prime minister candidate Maxime Bernier, who the Daily Mail reports “co-founded his relatively new political party in 2018 with the support of former neo-Nazi leader Shaun Walker and anti-Muslim activist Janice Bultje of the far right group Pegida Canada, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.”
And so the Antifa protesters acted like good little fascists, attempting to bully and harass the elderly into silence. The Daily Mail, describing what the Antifa “protesters” were doing and why, reported:
The three demonstrators on Sunday refused to move out of the elderly couple’s way in accordance with antifa’s anti-free speech, ‘no platform’ policy of supporters using any means necessary to deny ‘fascists’ an opportunity to air their views.
The elderly couple was blocked from passing on either side of the troop, which was heard shouting chants like ‘Nazi scum! Off our streets!’
About 100 protesters, both on the side of the People’s Party of Canada and protesting against it, were arrested by police after violence broke out. Given that the Antifa jackboots were the ones harassing little old ladies, it’s not hard to imagine them breaking all the rules and getting violent.
Despite that, the Canadian government did not crack down on Antifa and lock the bank accounts of all its members while also trying to freeze the funds of its supporters and those who donated to it, as it did to the peaceful protesters in the Canadian trucker protest over the winter of 2021-2022.
Apparently those who harass real Canadians and restrict their ability to move through the cities get more legal protections and rights than those who try to stand up for freedom.
