You were just having this discussion, I was reading it all


While I like idea, I'm worried its going to be seen as an attack on the other side. Hopefully his homeland security background makes him the right candidate to lead this.

I am quite proud of the GOP reaction to Steve King.

I hope we can focus on all hate groups and minimize their destruction.


The bigger question is:

Is this about eliminating "hate groups" or is this about silencing your political rivals? Given the track record of the Democrats from just this past 2 years alone, I'm gonna go with the latter.


Indeed, no doubt these criminals will go around smearing every single enemy they have. They have form and can not be trusted.

A certain segment of society wishes that Nazism and Fascism would return, at least to prove to the rest of us that their perpetual fantasies and worries of a far-right resurgence were somewhat justified.


Ironically enough, fascism is returning in a new guise, but it's busy telling us all that it's not what it is.

One of the great ironies of the last few years is that a group which bills itself as "anti fascist" uses tactics that are textbook fascism to try to silence their opponents.

“All in the name” But not in their actions.

“Think how we think or we’ll attack you”

The very definition of fascism

Sure that’s what many of them are and def Antifa in its origins.

But since 2016 a lot of Antifa groups have been attacking almost exclusively right wing groups, even if they aren’t fascist. Mysteriously, it seems to always be right in line with the dnc.

Moreover, you don’t get to label anything you want as fascist, then proceed to suppress other people’s rights and attack them violently. Not only is that fascistic, it’s vigilanteism and thought policing.

It’s just like the ‘protesters’ using the hecklers vote to deplatform people they don’t like on college campuses. They make up extended definitions of ‘hate speech’ which don’t match the legal one, then proceed as unauthorized vigilantes to shut down another groups’ rights to free assembly and speech.

That’s not liberal behavior, it too is extremist.

here is the biggest problem with this they only seem to be interested in RIGHTWING Extremism. now if it was just extremism it would be a different story. as it stands with being all about Rightwing Extremism, it shows that this is really just a way to try to destroy their political opponents. the democrats and left taking yet more pages from Nazism and communism yet again. it's really getting to the point where we could actually consider the democrats and leftists as extremist, hate groups when all is said and done.


Exactly

“Right wing” is NOT ‘wrong’.
But according to communists, anything that is ‘opposition’ is ‘wrong’.

Hence, aNtifa is somehow not a “Hate group”, the Nation of Islam is somehow not a “Hate group”

Insane right?

Sorry, but you misread. This is what I posted:

"So, those sources will be right up, Eh?"

And what I meant is for you, to show me, where you got all of those wonderful ideas, that you have, so I can check them, to determine your mental condition.

Easy-peasy right?

So those sources?

I showed you mine!

Atomwaffen. They actually want to kill a lot of people, they have plans to achieve that goal, and have held training camps in the Nevada desert.

Antifa on the other hand posts flyers on college campuses.

9/11 was the product of 19 hijackers and less than 30 conspirators total. The OKC Bombing was the product of two men. The fact that Atomwaffen has 80 people with no qualms about killing is absolutely chilling.


and riot causing millions worth of damage, set fire to cars, throw molotov cocktails at the police, violently attack people they disagree with...

And those on the Right have spent the last 17+ years only concerned with Islamic extremism.

Where were all these calls for a broad approach during that time?

I agree that this is biased too, and said so throughout the war on terror. However, tons of Democrats played along with that the whole time, including the wars and torture.

Real protesters, like me, hold them accountable too.

Wow! right wing groups that aren't fascist? Could you point them out? I am sure the member's parents will be relieved to hear the news!

Yours prove mine

“Leftist extremist groups get to define what is and is-not an extremist group”

And you seem just fine with that

Leftist fascism in full display

Seriously: What is your problem? Nobody in this thread is defending Atomwaffen, but you keep bringing them up. Yet you keep trying to defend Antifa, who by all external appearances exist primarily to harass & intimidate people who don't tow the DNC party line.


I don't think you "towing the party line of the DNC is what ANTIFA is all about. It is all in the name: Anti-Fascist:

The Antifa1] movement is a conglomeration of left wing autonomous, militant anti-fascist[7] groups in the United States.[11] The principal feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action.[12] They engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.[18] Conflicts are both online and in real life.[14] Activists involved in the movement tend to be anti-capitalists[19] and they subscribe to a range of ideologies, typically on the left. They included anarchists, socialists and communists along with some liberals and social democrats.[25] Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means.
Wiki

Didn't see anything about the DNC in that little blurb. In fact, the last line says:Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means Doesn't sound like they go door to door passing out DNC flyers or manning phone banks before elections. We all know what ANTIFA does: they hunt fascists.


Just like the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a Democratic Republic? It's in the name, after all.

Yep. The surest sign that a country is a dictatorship is that they put the word "Democratic" in the country's name.

It’s hard to tell of you are joking or delusional. There exist extreme, even ‘fascist’ groups. Patriot prayer groups, those concerned about open borders, etc, simply aren’t ‘fascist.’ One can disagree with them, sure.

But you do liberals a discredit and even actual anti fascist work, if like many you claim that everybody and their mother on the right is racist, fascist, and so on.

That’s not woke, it’s idiotic or disingenuous.

I've said in the past that I have no problem with the core message of groups like Antifa (fascists suck) and BLM (stop shooting black people just for being black) but I'm opposed to their more extreme methods.

That's the difference between Right Wing extremists and Left Wing extremists. Those on the Left actually have a good core message. Those on the Right think minorities need to be eradicated.

So not only are Right Wing extremists more prone to killing people they have a reprehensible message.

That's why I don't get people comparing the two sides.

What was this thread about again? Oh yeah:
Democrats Prepare Hearings On "Rightwing Extremism" What does everyone want to discuss:
Everything except the fact that Democrats Prepare Hearings On "Rightwing Extremism"
Ohhhh. I get it. Change the topic to accuse your perceived enemies of doing exact what you know you are guilty of. Only use extreme hyperbole.
Eh, either way, the reality is still: Democrats Prepare Hearings On "Rightwing Extremism"

I leave you to the rest of the thread. You (and you know who you are) own me one for setting up this little echo chamber for you.

Enjoy your little party.

Apart form the fact "right wing extremist" is apparently everyone who disagrees with the progressive wing of the democratic party.

Very similar to that committee on un-american activities back in the day. "Everyone who disagrees with us is a communist and a traitor"
