WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — The images out of Charlottesville over the weekend showed a shockingly large number of individuals sporting fascist insignia, using the Nazi salute, carrying torches reminiscent of Ku Klux Klan rallies and marching with swastika and Confederate flags side by side. On the other side, a contingent militant anti-fascists (Antifa) hurled bricks and made use of make-shift flame throwers.

President Donald Trump pointed to the two sides of the violent clashes over the weekend telling reporters that both sides were to blame. "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that," the president said.

Interesting I keep seeing that the Unite the Right's rally, namely the main White Nationalists attendance, was an isolated, low attendance march and there's nothing to worry about. A study has shown otherwise.

To add:

"Before 2007 you would get between 10 to 15 members of the Klan or neo-Nazi groups showing up [at rallies]," Johnson explained. "The fact that they're drawing hundreds of people to these rallies is very concerning, because for every one of these individuals who shows up in public and engages in these hateful rants, there are ten others who are sitting at home not participating."

It's curious that so many of you focus your ire on a resistance movement, resisting Nazis.

Nazis are assholes too.
Don't glorify the Antifa assholes by saying they are resisting Nazis.
Do you see any Nazis in this video?



Nope.....just radical assholes acting like Nazis

I love how some used a ruin instead of a Swastika on their flags, thinking no one would recognize LOL


Some did use the flag:

Ahhh, don't you love a bit of "freedom of speech" gone wrong?

You fought for it. Now you gotta deal with it.

Bad luck.

Fine exemplar of Unite the Right.
"A Convicted Domestic Terrorist Was at the Charlottesville Nazi March

Michael Tubbs plotted to bomb minority businesses"


At least one man who attended the Aug. 11, 2017 white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, is a convicted domestic terrorist. Michael Tubbs, currently the chairman of the Florida League of the South, spent four years in prison after stealing military equipment and plotting to bomb black- and Jewish-owned businesses in Jacksonville, Florida.

Do you see the difference in the 2 groups ? I did .
Of course , "there are none so blind as those who will just not see...." attributed to John Heywood

neo-nazis generally support an ethnic cleansing event which occurred in europe.
anti fascists oppose it.

that's the difference.

When their methods, oft times, resemble the ones they're supposedly resisting...I feel rather safe in criticizing both.

I've had my own encounters with both groups, American Nazi's and those who are supposedly different. Different in name only, I'm sorry to say. In name only. Their actions are much the same. I can't really tell the difference between the scars I got from the Nazi's, or from the "resistance".

The ideology is much the same. Think as we think, or you're the enemy. Well, I disavow, repudiate, and essentially tell both sides to bugger off. I've no use for any of them.

So wrong
Your first mistake and the most glaring :
Did this tragedy take place in Europe ? Damn I thought it was in Virginia , USof A

2nd and just as bad (or worse)
The difference is , it is against hate crime laws in this country to cover your face during a public event such as a protest or march....

ETA : I just realized the greatest EPIC FAIL of your post
The Nazis and Fascists teamed up

Epic Fail
