- Antifa is an umbrella movement comprised of people of various ideologies who are united in their opposition to white supremacism, neo-Nazism and fascism.
- Nevertheless, elements that often participate in antifa actions, such as anarchists, do condone and participate in terrorism and political violence.
- White supremacist groups intentionally hold rallies in left-leaning cities like Portland, Oregon, in hopes of sparking antifa violence, as they believe such action generates publicity and sympathy for their cause.
