In any case, they're not Nazis, you might call them anarchists, but not Nazis, Nazis are more in the Trump camp.
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John

Yes, I don't think Antifa has set up any concentration camps, or burned any synagogues!!
To clarify, I meant, Neo-Nazis, the small-time folks who hold rallies in the U.S. from time to time, I wasn't referring to the original, Third Reich Nazis, who make their modern admirers look like boys at a Halloween party. Antifa are as small-time and insignificant as the Neo-nazis they hate, and whose rallies they target. I'm just saying, a pox on both these annoying, extremist groups, who cannot see how alike they both are.
Knowing this body is like a clay jar,
securing this mind like a fort,
attack Mara with the spear of discernment,
then guard what's won without settling there,
without laying claim.

Is this your idea of right speech???
Yes. I'm sorry if wordplay and humour are lost on you.
