Well, when the state prevents you from owning and protecting yourself with a firearm while out (a clear 2nd Amendment violation), what option is there? A sword, albeit over-the-top, would be an option, no?

Altercation???

Where im from if you attack someone with a sword.

That's attempted murder!

Do not pass Go, do not collect £200, go straight to gaol scenario if ever there was one.


How would you react if you had an unknown assailant come up from behind you. Cuckold you in the back of the head and knock your hat off? would you not become defensive? Raise you sword to tell whoever to back off? What if that attacker raised their hand up at the same time you are trying to scare them away and you accidentally cut that hand. Guessing it is time to run, before the whole thing gets even more out of hand, right?

The way I see it is that the Right is now minimizing the influence of Nazis.

-We saw it in Charlottesville
-We've seen it with Atomeaffen
- We've seen it with the guy that hijacked a train
- We've seen it every time a far-Right extremist kills anyone.

Even if the number of these people is minuscule, they're committing more terror attacks than anyone else in this country.


In fairness, I rarely see ppl defending violent extremist on either end of the spectrum.

But that's not true. Other than maybe you, everyone else is trying to come up with some excuse.

If I popped in to a thread after an Islamic terror attack and said it was the US' fault because of decades worth military intervention would you agree with me?

Are you claiming I’m not correct? Are you claiming antifa and full leftism isn’t more acceptable in the US? We literally have the democratic socialists and Green Party running such candidates, and Bernie Sanders. I’m actually a supporter of AOc and sanders, but come on man. Be honest.

Antifa also is more acceptable.

Your Forbes report focuses on the slpc. Do you understand that some groups on there are non right wing and non white. For example, the Nation of Islam and black israelites are on there.

Then, often a group such as the proud boys is listed but not an actual hate group.

Splc is being sued right now for false labels, and has its own scandal brewing.

Regardless of the stat you and Forbes are citing, a careful analyst will realize that interpretation of the stats and causes is complicated. It doesn’t justify prima facie every leftist idea or the current dnc narrative. It doesn’t support the idea that every trump supporter is a neo Nazi or white supremacist.

Finally, can you demonstrate some reading comprehension and answer my actual post about how it’s dangerous to label anyone you want a Nazi and then proceed to become a extra judicial vigilante and attack them? That’s exactly what many antifa and “bash the fash” types are suggesting.

Mate nobody in any first world nation should be walking about with a sword.

Sorry. Your explanation doesn't work considering the fact that this site creams its pants anytime a Gateway Pundit article gets posted.


My explanation uses only facts, so it works.

- right now we do not know there even was an attacker.
- right now, even if there was an attacker, we do not know if the attacker was wearing a MAGA hat
- right now, we do not know anything other than a person claiming they were cut on the hand by someone else.

When we know more, it might be worth a debate, but as it stands you just pushed an unverified story as fact and tried to divide people.

Perhaps in future, wait for some facts to emerge instead of jumping in with a prissy thread because you are upset some other people create threads about the left. You just admitted to being part of the problem.

Yes I am making those claims. The fact our elections are 50/50 would explain that.

No, I would point out that religious zealots were murdering "non beleivers" long before the US existed. I would equally point out that Roman Catholics, in the past, have commited similar atrocities.

Wow, this is typical progressive thinking lol. No evidence, just the mention of a hat and the agendabots go sideways :-)

So if some guy dons a Hillary hat or t-shirt, grabs a knife and starts slashing people, under liberal (non) logic it would be accurate to assume, without motivational evidence, that it's a Hillary supporter cutting up trump supporters. That's not the way reality works, get some real evidence and bring it to the table.

Cheers - Dave

You guys heard it here. It's okay to punch a Nazi.

Epic fail.

1. Seriously? A 10 minute long video of a 3 second looping clip?

2. He wasn't in anyone's face, and was sucker punched by a radical leftist antifa piece of garbage. There was no evidence that he was even a Natzi.

So, no... he didn't deserve it because he wasn't assaulting anyone (verbally or otherwise).

I wasn't a regular poster then, but there was enough involved for both sides to bear blame, IMO.

I agree, but obviously, a pirate costume is not complete without a sword and a patch over his eye. Hmmm...no mention of an eye patch. If he had one, even more likely of being blind sided.

The whole scenario does seem staged over-played and over-dramatic. A pirate costume, swinging a sword, maga or red hat, and yelling homophobic slurs in SF?

Almost four pages in and not a single person condemning the sword wielder. If the perp was tied to any group other than Cult45 this site would be in a tizzy how no one had spoken out against him.


Blame Jussie Smollet, thanks to him most Americans will be inclined to believe attacks like these are hoaxes until proven otherwise before condemning them.

Would you not agree that someone thinking they're making America great by berating people different from them is also a major problem?


I agree, 100%.

Yes, just as wrong as calling those that oppose your particular political viewpoint "a basket of deplorables".

As soon as you lump all people together into a generalization, you've lost sight of the issue and failed to have a discussion.

People are individuals, not a group or hive mind. At least so far, although there are those that are ardently striving to quell individualism in favor of the collective.

I think we might require further information.

Coz this mad bastard could be a plant or possibly the whole situation staged.

Either that or this SF roller rink has one mad crowd.

Tell you one thing Swords and skates certainly dina mix well.

What do you mean start? Ron white just talked about stand up comedians getting death threats from trump supporters. Even ones that aren't particularly liberal but just make jokes.

Sorry, don't believe it. Trump supporters aren't the deranged ones for the most part.

Sure, its possible there is one or two lone nuts out there sending a bunch of sill 'death threats', and if they are, they should be prosecuted for it if/when they are caught.
