The promotion of Antifa serves several interrelated functions. First, the physical violence of a handful of protesters in any large demonstration is regularly used as a pretext for police provocation. This is true not only in the US, but in Europe and around the world. Police give the "anti-fascist" and anarchist groups a free hand to carry out provocations, which are then exploited to carry out a violent crackdown. The groups themselves are easily infiltrated by police provocateurs, who encourage violent acts for the desired end.
