You're dealing with people like [personal profile] kaberett who are receiving the message that asking antifa activists to be inclusive to disabled people is oppressive and reactionary, and risks putting them into the category of people who deserve to be met with violence.

Right now, the "vulnerable group" you're defending is the people fascists hope to someday hurt. Meanwhile, people with disabilities are afraid that antifascists will be violent towards them for being disabled. You are advocating for violent action, and people are saying that you risk targeting a vulnerable group with it.

It's not enough to just post things that are ideologically correct; rectifying this situation means also doing things like interacting with the people bringing these concerns to you in a way that demonstrates empathy with their worries, shows that you understand their concerns, apologizes for any part you may have had in the current situation, or commits to making it safe for them to engage in antifascism without fear of undeserved violence.
