As far as I have seen, Antifa is quite defensive. They tend to show up wherever Nazis and KKK group, and don't really attack so much as defend other protesters from alt-right violence. I think it's good that SOMEBODY is punching Nazis in the face.

I have no doubt Walmart looked at the ROI and went for it. If I had to bet, there was a tax subsidy involved that helped sweeten the pot. Walmart does a lot of crappy things that are made with ROI in mind beyond the next quarter. Unfair labor practi
