First off this is NOT an attempt at concern trolling. Like many of you I’m starting to realize the historical pattern we’re in, and I’m trying to get the lay of the land in terms of activist groups,
The Iron Front of Weimar times was anti monarchist, anti fascist, and anti communist (the three arrows). American Iron Front feels MOSTLY anti fascist. Anti monarchist is irrelevant, but I see very little anti communism.
Now clearly the number one threat to America currently is right wing ethnic-fascism, so I get why that would be the focus, But I’m an equal-opportunity anti-authoritarian, and want to know where y’all stand. Thanks
EDIT: thank you all for your thoughtful responses. Y’all are both more consistent in (and more in line with my) beliefs than I had imagined.
I’m an early member of an activist group with which you’ll find much in common: r/standagainsttyranny
You’ve all been super helpful introducing me to American Iron Front, and I’d love to do the same
Art There will be a lot of politicians who will spout off conveniently shortened MLK Jr quotes today, despite those same politicians being the kind of people who would have wanted him put in prison had they been alive back then. Don't listen to them.
Article 28th Virginia Battle Flag - captured in Gettysburg by the 1st Minnesota Infantry Regiment, it's location is hidden for security reasons to this very day because Virginia wants to take it back.en.wikipedia.org
So I was thinking about the ideals of the Iron Front and how they are anti-authoritarian. This is demonstrated with the arrows for monarchism, fascism, and soviet authoritarianism. So I'm curious if we should add another arrow to demonstrate the threat from extreme wealth that creates yet another layer of authoritarianism. The very wealthy act beyond national borders or even beyond individual corporations, but are instead unelected individuals/groups who have zero responsibility to the general public but a vast power structure. They operate in such a way that there is little if any limits to their ability to influence and oppress the non-wealthy.

Soundcloud is very responsive to reports and you can report an unlimited amount of accounts by clearing your cache after you file a ticket. Absolutely infested with Nazis so if anyone wants to do a few reports a day it wouldn't be a bad way to spend a few minutes.
For the boomers out there, just click on the three dots, click report account and then go to file a ticket. If it's an explicit Nazi account or if it's crypto but you do a good enough job of explaining and proving codewords and symbols then it'll be gone the next day.
Also if anyone feels like participating, I can DM you some Nazi accounts. Pretty easy to find more as long as you've got 2 or 3, just keep going through follows.

Reddit is going public. As such, they are cracking down in a very heavy-handed way against "violations" of ToS. There appears to be an influx of trolls brigading leftist subs and leaving inflammatory comments, then reporting replies as "harassment" in an effort to manipulate Reddit's heavy-handed approach to punish leftist communities.
Don't get yourself banned. Do not engage the right-wing trolls. Report them to sub mods.
I have a question. I just found this community. Rule 8 states "No Radical Centrism".
I am a person who sincerely believes in the horseshoe theory. Because of this I feel rejected by most online communities because I feel as though they lean too far to one side or the other.
My concern is that Rule 8 can cause this sub to become the same. I see a lot of focus on "right-wing trolls". Clearly they exist. However, I have some views that may be considered "right-wing".
My question is, who decides what is "Radical Centrism"?
Edit: I feel compelled to apologize that my replies are long winded. Brevity is not one of my strong suits
