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.
To the Buddha-refuge i go; to the Dhamma-refuge i go; to the Sangha-refuge i go.

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