Active Nonconformists Together Insisting on Free Association and Speech to Confront Injustice and State Tyranny

This is the best name/acronym for a group, ever. ANTI-FASCIST. (the blurb about this Minneapolis-based group is just “below the fold” on the linked page. And this is possibly one of the *best* quotes from a government official ever:

“What the ANTI-FASCISTs don’t understand is that free speech is fine as long as you don’t do it in public,” said a representative of Homeland Security. “We’re waging a War on Terror, and freedom of speech just isn’t what it used to be. Fences, tear gas, and paddy wagons are important tools for preventing terrorism. Show me a picture of protesters with access to convention delegates and the media, and I’ll show you free speech that’s completely out of control.”

Sorry, I meant one of the saddest.
