oh my god no, the opposite.  They drop an N-bomb in the middle of one of their most famous songs.  They would hate the soft, crying, inflectional infants of the modern left.  Those kind of people existed in 84 too, and about 1/3rd of DK's songs are making fun of them (including the one with the N-bomb).  I actually think about some of the people on this message board when I hear that song.

So, you've been to school
For a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car
Thinking you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl
Playing ethnicky jazz
To parade your snazz
On your five-grand stereo
Braggin' that you know
How the n*****s feel cold
And the slum's got so much soul
It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear
Brace yourself, my dear
It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough, kid, but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife
squishy young leftists that know better than anybody else despite the safety bubble they live in (provided by daddy) are the worst.

They were obviously left-wing, but no, as dead0man noted, they certainly weren't anything like modern "SJWs".

Minor Threat were pretty SJW despite the song "Guilty of Being White", even though Ian regrets that song now.

The reason I ask is because they have a song that's basically pro-Antifa.

A lot of early punk scenes had serious issues with racists, many bands felt they had to make sure everybody knew where they stood.  At least a couple (though I can't remember any examples right now, I may try and look it up) bands felt a backlash for not doing that or otherwise being ambiguous about it.  They still existed in St Louis in 94, or at least three of them did and I suppose the 3 or 4 dudes (I don't remember the band as much as I remember the 3 fans) in the band they always supported.  They didn't wear any swastikas (that's how you got your asskicked getting smokes at the gas station on the way to the show), but they had the rest of the uniform...combat boots, tight jeans rolled up at the ankles, white tshirt w/ red suspenders and a shaved heads.

Being anti-racist doesn't make one pro-Antifa though.

And here I was thinking being against Nazis was a position shared by almost everyone regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum.
