    Cool and a couple of months ago when Richard Spencer was on the receiving end of an inconsequent punch you were pearl clutching with the best of them talking about bad it is that people might express sympathy for someone committing an act of violence. Now someone drives a car into a crowd and you make sure to point out how you can understand how they got to that point.

    So you have white nationalists who come heavily armored, open carry with handguns and automatic weapons as well as other "homemade" hand weapons to protest a statue. Then you have an anarchist group antifa who learns of this and comes heavily armored themselves with weapons and feces with the sole purpose to start a fight against this group.

    Violence ensues, people get hurt and there are casualties. What a surprise. There is fault on both sides here and antifa got the results they crave so much. Destruction and anarchy.

    CNN literally said yesterday this is Trumps fault and even one of the CNN people was calling the antifa "heroes". They are such a despicable news organization. Well CNN really isn't news anymore. They truly are propaganda to fulfill a specific political ideology.

    I have to look up that BigBecil quote again.

Brilliant business plan.
    I highly doubt that they wanted a car crashing into a crowd of protesters.

    One argument that can come from this would be that the attempts by the antifa crowd to justify using violence against political opponents for the past few months, including that shooting by a leftist extremist at that baseball game, led up to this terrorist attack.

    I don't think it's the appropriate argument to make after a terrorist attack, but I won't be shocked if that will be their argument.

    Political violence is wrong, folks.

    This is real fascism at it's core. This is where the statement "literally Hitler" actually rings true. That's the whole irony in this is antifa, the "alt left" "radical left", "progressives", "extreme left" whatever they call themselves are the true fascists in America.

    Are you sure about that?

    [QUOTE=Bobthe4th;1191314]Are you sure about that?]

    Yes! The largest ongoing threat of violence, suppression and anarchist behavior of anything political in nature (fascism) is from the "alt left, progressive liberals" in America. This isn't even debatable at the moment.

    Well it obviously is debatable, otherwise everyone would agree with you.

    In America right now any conservative voice/opinion or what is even perceived as such in a public setting there is an attempt to suppress and meet with violence. It isn't debatable. Progressive liberals/extreme left are the largest threat of fascism in America. It isn't even close.

    You know, for someone who loves to portray themselves as an intellectual, you don't seem to be very good at thinking.

    Richard Spencer has never employed violence towards anyone.

    Antifa showed up to that protest with the intention of starting violence, like they've done at literally every other event they've tried to ruin, and cops are ordered to stand down and do nothing.

    Do you see the difference there, you fucking morality warrior? My god, your holier than thou attitude is nauseating. Try harder next time.

    You are aware that these people carry around banners with Stalin's face and often wave hammer and sickle flags? Stalin was worse than Hitler.

    Not even taking into consideration what he did to his own people, what Stalin and the red Army did to Poland and its people in WW2 is on par with the German atrocities of WW2. Stalin was a piece of shit.

    And once again the point misses your head by a mile. I wasn't defending antifa nor attacking Spencer for that matter. I was just pointing out your blatant hypocrisy. Months earlier you got mad at lefties who didn't really mind Spencer getting a punch because they felt he deserved it. That was just a punch. That was nothing but here you are expressing the same kind of sentiment about a guy getting run over. "Gee, it's kind of bad that someone got killed but you can't really blame a guy for snapping." And I'm the one who is nauseating. O.K. there bud.

    I guess I just don't feel like white supremacists (or any similar movement) should even have the right to protest.

    I appreciate free speech and the need to support it even if you disagree with it, but if your mandate is advocating racial genocide, guess what: Fuck your rights.

    If you don't support free speech for your worst enemy, you don't support free speech.
    It's one of those annoying things about it, but its important.
