There cut from the same hatful cloth. The media is fueling this fire that may get out of control.


I'm not sure I agree with you. One side is hateful against people who in many instances are just law abiding citizens minding their own business. The other side is hateful against people who are hateful. It just seems antifa's scope is very narrow and less immoral.




But in many cases, those law abiding citizens are still taking tax dollars that would otherwise be used for things like road maintenance, schools, retraining programs for the unemployed. The biggest grudge is that the liberals who are advocating mass immigration aren't the ones who are living in these culturally enriched areas. They continue to send their children to private schools, a luxury that many others can't afford.

People seem to have forgotten some basic principles. You are free to think whatever you think. You are free to say whatever you like related to taxes or government policies. You are not free to hit, harm, physically assault any other person, make an offensive gesture, threat or damage their property for doing the other two. You are free to make a complaint to the police.

It's like that woman who fllipped the finger at a Trump supporter then went all victim because he got in his car and tailed her in order to find out what he had done to offend her.

Is Trump wrong in equating antifa with white supremacists


I do not think he ever did.

Off course I might have missed it, but all I saw was him asking if really they did not bear at least some responsibility for the eruption of violence:



"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, but I'll say it right now,"


and



"What about the alt-left that came charging... at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? (...) There are two sides to a story."


These are the quote used by the BBC at least. You can name to parties in relation to the same circumstances without equating them, you know.

To me the right question is 'is the media wrong in saying Trump is equating antifa with white supremacists'?

(and yes, I think he would be wrong if he did say 'same same'. They are 'same same' in the respect that they are both, I think, retarded and prone to violence, but they differ in more ways than they are the same.)

So let me try and get this straight .
What we are seeing here is the remnants of the old national socialists movement
on one side and the remnants of the old soviet communists ideals on the other
with a hand full of anti-fascist and history buffs thrown in the mix.

Is that right? Am I close to understanding this or am I missing something?

Both groups need to be permanently banned from our country. Both are disgusting pieces of crap.

I saw the same thing, he didn't equate them. He said both were violent and shared the blame. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. He's right. The media are reporting lies about what he said. They are not reporting the substance just picking what they want to smear him.
