The shooting in Dayton had nothing to do with politics.
They are just trying to make it so for some weird reason or another.
Your blatant lies are a disgrace to this site. You just had numerous posters link proof that ties the Dayton shooter to Antifa and still deny facts in
another thread. Then come in this thread and spread lies. You’re a shill and the worse kind of troll.
I read your post and I am trying to be open minded. So I started trying to find out if there was any truth to your claim "proof that ties the Dayton
shooter to Antifa". All I found was the Dayton shooter tweeted or liked the idea of Antifa using violence against far right groups who use
There are two ways to look at this. Either a person takes the middle ground and say we must have the rule of law and condemn political violence by
any group left or right. Or, take the position the from one side where you claim the other group is a political terrorist organization but your side
I find too many people on the right only criticizing Antifa but never speaking out against the violence from the right. And when someone points out
the violence also exists on the right like the way the OP did, you end up with a 500 post thread with unlimited amounts of right wing vitriolic
People on the right need to have a better education on Antifa:
Antifa has been around since before WWII. Like everything on the left, no one is in charge. "Antifa is not an interconnected or unified
organization, but rather a movement without a leadership structure, comprising multiple autonomous groups and individuals." But in spite of this I
hear people on the right use the word "leftist" like everyone is on the same page all part of the same organization. It is NOT. The left is
completely disorganized with NO central leadership or authority. This is what makes the left great! There are no leaders. No one is in charge. No
authority bullying everyone else into submission.
I generally do not understand the way the right thinks. Groups like Antifa are protesting against right wing groups that promote hatred and
intolerance. Someone please explain to me why being against the promotion of hatred and intolerance is in itself promoting hatred and intolerance.
It seems to me if Fascism did not exist, then Antifa would not exist. People sympathetic to Antifa's goals claim when people speak hatred it leads to
violence. We know advertising works otherwise people would not spend billions on advertising. We know yelling "fire" in a theater is not free-speech
because it could lead to people being trampled to death. You could make a case that hate speech should be regulated because it leads to violence.
There are far more loud mouth right wingers on ATS than left wingers. My question to all you right wing loud mouths is do you support the rule of law
and do you condemn violence being done by right wing extremist groups? Take the guy who ran over the left wing protesters in Charlotte who got life
in prison. Do you support the result?
My hope is everyone can at least agree we must have the rule of law and condemn any form of violence. I am a far left liberal Democrat but I support
the rule of law and condemn violence. There I said it. Now shut up.
