It was obvious who actually started the violence for anybody who actually watched the live stream. Before any of the supporters of Confederate history threw a punch, they had objects thrown at them constantly, were pepper sprayed a few times, and had to dodge clubs and other blunt object attacks just to get to the park.

After an hour or so of this, some of them finally defended themselves and fought back. And just like the Israeli apologists who blame the Palestinians when they dare to defend themselves from harassment and ethnic cleansing, the media and leftist radicals put the blame on those who were defending themselves.

Its not wonder one of them snapped an went GTA on a crowd, assuming it in itself was not a false flag attack.

Did I say they burned anyone? Come on be fair. Don't put words in my mouth or assume you know what I'm thinking. Jeez...
If you want I can leave you to argue with me where you write both sides. Your side and what ever you imagine my response might be and ill just stay out of it. How 'bout that. Then you'll always win. What fun it will be for you. All alone...

The really funny thing, is on one thread I supported the right of everyone to speak freely and was called. . . . you guessed it. . . . a Nazi.

You can't make this stuff up.

The thought police are here.

And they aren't leaving any time soon.



It's great on one side we have angry socialists on the other far right extremist. I guess the only option is to pick one or the other.

Your either a lefttist or a nazi.

Support gay people having contracts your a socialist sjw, support free speech your a nazi.

I don't think that's accurate, at least based on what the local churches were saying.

She also asked whether something could have been done to prevent the violence.


Why yes, there actually were a few things that could've been done to prevent this.

First off, the protest could not have happened period. That one's just a pipe-dream, but if the initial protest didn't happen, none of this would've happened.

Secondly, antifa could've just let these guys protest. I understand disagreeing with them, but c'moooonnn!!! You think a bunch of white supremists protesting the removal of a statue would've actually worked?? I highly doubt anyone would've decided NOT to remove the statue.

Unfortunately, neither of these happened, and two very angry groups of people who are literally looking for a fight met, and got exactly what they were looking for: a fight. Both sides are ridiculous, and both sides are extremely hateful.

Yes, the pictures of the black guy getting beat are pretty terrible. I also saw a video of a white nationalist being pulled into the crowd, all while being told "Get out of our streets". Well, how can he if you're pulling him right back into it?? There were cops nearby, but if they didn't save him, I'm sure his beating would've been just as bad as that other guys, if not worse.

As a minority myself, I'm getting extremely sick and tired of this #. You don't fight racism by being more racist. You don't fight sexism by being more sexist. You don't fight hatred with more hate. All any of this does is make more of what they're trying to get rid of.

It does appear that both sides did come ready to duke it out, but what "side" does Antifa represent?

They are anarchists, if I'm not mistaken. That does not make them "Leftists", as it realtes to modern US politics.

So the reporter would be incorrect.

Were you pointing out their carrying of torches for some other reason?

Maybe they used them to burn down businesses... like drugstores and convenience stores?
I guess I am missing your point. Why point out that they had torches if they did nothing with them to injure anyone?

The ANTIFA had baseball bats and used them to hit people.... that was caught on video.

Both sides were littered with Nazi's. Probably evenly distributed.


Opposite sides of the same coin. They're all idiots, as far as I'm concerned.

I would like to see proof that everyone on the left thinks that everyone who voted for Trump is a nazi. I don't see any indication of that assertion.

You know, that assertion is just as bad as saying that all Muslims support terrorism. I don't believe that any more than I believe that everyone who voted for Trump is a nazi. And I am one of the "libtards", as you so fondly like to refer to us.

So what's the difference labeling one group but not the other?
Radical Islamist terrorists.good to call then that.
White supremacist terrorists not good to call them that.

Why?
Ones white the other is not.

Saying what? What's main stream media doing but calling out a hate group.

You're not defending the racists are you?
You don't identify with them do you?
Of course no one here is. No one would.

She aint wrong that there are folk in both sides itching for a fight..

But some folk on twitter disagreed with her?

And? Twitter is crammed with idiots.

Are we going to report on every dumb thing folk on t'internet say? We'll be starting threads on ourselves if thats how it's going down.

Well, once we remember the dumb crap we posted next morning at least.

No how about just the ADMITTED WHITE SUPREMACIST, armed to the teeth militia types. Are the nazis...

Because that's what they call themselves...


I don't know how the right can try and sell 2 totally contradictory narratives and people still buy it..

The left cannot be BOTH a bunch of scared little snow flakes who's feelings get hurt by trigger words AND HARDENED KILLERS FOAMING AT THE MOUTH..

Those two things don't come in the same package..

That photo in the op is pretty funny. What the hell is all this about really?

I nean do all those on the left actually support what the left is all about or are they just defending minorities? Do they actually support what the left are trying to teach the children? Do they want their children to be bought up in a world which will look pretty disgusting when you look into the future

I'm on the left and I did battle with the right on this website for the past year and I don't think any of you guys are white supremacist. Crazy yeah lol but a hate group no.
I don't think everyone on the left thinks that either.
Let's realize that those crazies don't represent anyone from out little group. On either side.

I was actually thinking this might have been a smoke screen for something else overseas or something washington is doing and wanted attention diverted away from something that important. Call me crazy but it has happened before.

I don't think it's about an intentionally constructed narrative...

It's because people allow themselves to be duped with logical fallacies...

No matter what 12 people claiming to be (insert faction here) say. They do not speak for all the rest of (insert social group)...


It's retarded...


With all the vast resources of the internet I can find someone saying literally ANYTHING...


It's stupid when they do it to racial groups ..

It's stupid when they do it to political factions..

It stupid when they do it to religions..


What the guy next door says in some chat room doesn't mean anything about all the people on my street..
