J. Kb on his last post had this:
“Direct action” is Antifa lingo for violence.
And he is right. And one thing popped in the old and rusty memory bank: A French terrorist group with the moniker Action Directe. They were a French ultra left wing terrorist group in the late 70s and mid 80s who engaged in a campaign of bombings and assassinations. So for many in my generation who remembers Action Directe, when Antifa uses the expression Direct Action, we will default to terrorism, which it is the tools they will use to reach their ultimate goal anyway.
