Mark Bray

Rutgers University

Mark Bray is a part-time lecturer in the Department of History at Rutgers University. 

Bray first gained notoriety in 2017 when he authored “The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” and offered to donate half of the proceeds to ANTIFA. 

Bray fully endorses ANTIFA’s embrace of violence as a tactic, and often describes it as “self-defense”. He has stated that in order to “preemptively” shut down far-right events and gatherings,  “physical violence against white supremacists is both ethically justifiable and strategically effective.”

Soon after publication, he appeared on NBC to defend the use of force against opposing protestors. He claimed that as an illiberal organization, ANTIFA has and will continue to shut down the free speech of the far right. 

Bray recently penned an op-ed in the Washington Post in the midst of mass-rioting following the death of George Floyd. After expressing sympathy with the looters, Bray claims that police officers are, in fact, deadlier than ANTIFA.  He wrote, “…and in the United States, ANTIFA have never killed anyone, unlike their enemies in Klan hoods and squad cars.” 

After his views were condemned by Dartmouth University – his employer at the time – Bray soon began lecturing at Rutgers, where his university biography describes him as a “historian of human rights, terrorism, and politics in Modern Europe.”
