I look exactly like her when I shave and grow my hair out and rework my facial bones and skin.

Also you'd already know what I looked like if you properly stalked me.

Antifa doesn't even want people to stop being Nazis. They don't care.

They don't want people being Nazis in public. Where children can see them. Which is a very easy thing to do.
