Independent observers say that the “anti-fascists” in the United States is not functioning as a single organization, her participation in protests and riots after the murder of George Floyd unobtrusive. In addition, the “anti-fascist” often uses a different emblem.

“We do not allow symbols that represent the organization or ideology that preaches hatred, without context or judgment,” — said the head of network security Facebook the Nathaniel Gleicher.

The blurb said: “a Dangerous crowd of far-left factions running around our streets and destroy everything on their way,” quoted the New York Times. The banner hung for about a day.

“An inverted red triangle is a symbol used by “anti-fascists”, and so it was included in the advertising about “anti-fascists”, — said the representative of the headquarters of the trump Tim Marcog. In Facebook still have emojis in the form of an inverted red triangle; it looks exactly the same”.
