I taught for 22 years, starting in 2000.
Fresh out of the shower on a fall morning in my second year, I heard.

Methinks we ought to refer to the "antifa" folks as ANTI-FASCISTS every single time.
Make the GOP embrace their pro-fascists support. "Antifa" sounds vaguely ominous, but when we use their narrative frames, we're agreeing to their misuse of language, whereby nothing means what it means.
Methinks referring to General Dwight D. Eisenhower as the leader of the Antifa is important, too. We must be precise in our word choice, our metaphoric frames, and in calling them out being Anti American at every step of the way.
