Quote:There were HUNDREDS of the left socialist groups, you know, the very ones that rioted and caused all of that damage on inaguration day!
There is alot to unpack age here.
1. Being a left or liberal leaning group does not make the group socialist. No more than a conservative group would be the same as a hate group in and of itself.
2. What does inaugration day have to do with the current issue?
3. The counter protests were much smaller than the main protests in the recent example.
Quote:Just saying that both the extreme right AND left were willing to fight to the death there...
You are going to need to be clearer. Who did the left kill at the recent event? And if you are comparing moral equivalency than are those with Nazi and confederate flags with torches and guns now on equal footing with unarmed counter protesters?
Is that what the right is now? If extreme left is standing against that than I think we should be very afraid for the direction of the country if accepting that sort of hatred is ok.
I heard two talk show host on the radio this morning saying that a New York Times reporter had tweeted that Antifa members were there with clubs and flamethrowers but the post was deleted after an hour. Of course, I don't know where they got that information.
There is this picture of a flamethrower attack from Charlottesville.
Radical fringe groups on all sides are detestable. One asshole with a car was able to kill an innocent and injure dozens other. One nut with a gun tried to assassinate members of Congress. Three scumbags with boxcutters killed 3000 people.
