|Political position||Right-wing to Far-right|
Anti-Communist Action (or Anticom for short) is a right-wing to far-right[a] organization based in the United States and Canada. The group has described itself as "the right’s response to antifa." Anticom has espoused neo-Nazi ideology, and members have attended neo-Nazi events. The group has done security for various alt-right and white supremacist rallies. Anticom has overlapping membership with the neo-Nazi terrorist group Atomwaffen Division, and the groups have shared information on combat and bomb-making.
According to the Seattle Patch, the organization is not specifically aligned with white supremacists. The group has stated that it accepts members of all races. Leaked chat logs included violent rhetoric against minorities in the organization. A chat log from the 2017 Berkeley protests promised the event would turn into a "bloodbath".
The group was lead organizer of the 2017 White Lives Matter rally alongside the neo-Nazi groups National Socialist Movement, Traditionalist Workers Party, Vanguard America, the Southern nationalist League of the South, and the Ku Klux Klan. The group was also a lead member of the Unite the Right rally. In September 2017, members planned an event similar to the Unite the Right rally titled "March Against Communism" in Charlotte, North Carolina on December 28, 2017 with speakers including white nationalist Richard B. Spencer and Augustus Sol Invictus (aka Austin Gillespie) and a representative of the white supremacist organization Vanguard America. Anticom later cancelled the event due to safety concerns.
Some members of the movement have promoted mass killings against minorities and the overthrow of the government. Propublica has estimated the organization as having 1,200 participants in its chat room. The organization uses yellow and black flags and symbols as a reference to Libertarianism. Some flags also depict people being thrown from helicopters, which is a reference to executions during Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship of Chile.
A Propublica report detailed leaked chat logs from the organization calling for violence. A representative for the group stated that the report was true, but that it was not encouraged by leaders of the organization.
Vanguard America, Anti-Communist Action and The Right Stuff also are white-supremacist, far-right groups, all with strong xenophobic and anti-Semitic messages.
Participating right-wing organizations include the League of the South, the Traditionalist Worker's Party, National Socialist Movement, Vanguard America, and Anti-Communist Action.
