“gained popularity after publishing Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook”
In a rational world, people in academia would denounce Antifa and their violent, anti-free speech tactics. This guy is planning to give them money.

Dartmouth prof to donate half of book proceeds to Antifa
A Dartmouth College professor plans to donate half of the proceeds from his latest book to Antifa, the radical protest group labeled as “domestic terrorists” by the federal government.
Mark Bray, a lecturer at the elite college, gained popularity after publishing Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, in which he openly admits that the group rejects the classical understanding of free speech.
“At the heart of the anti-fascist outlook is a rejection of the classical liberal phrase incorrectly ascribed to Voltaire that ‘I disapprove of what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,’” the professor writes, noting that “after Auschwitz and Treblinka, anti-fascists committed themselves to fighting to the death the ability of organized Nazis to say anything.”
While it is unclear how personally involved Bray is in the organization, a recent profile of the controversial professor in The Chronicle of Higher Education briefly notes that he plans to donate half of the proceeds from his book to an unnamed fund that helps support the legal, medical, and personal expenses of Antifa activists.
