    I’m amazed that AntiFa was not mentioned in this opinion piece even once.

    I guess there are certain subject matter that are taboo with certain ideologies.

      FYI:
      White supremacist and other right-wing extremists are responsible for 74% of hate crimes while domestic Islamic extremists are responsible for 24% and just 2% are attributed to left-wing extremists according to the Anti-Defamation League.
      https://www.adl.org/education/resources/reports/murder-and-extremism-in-the-united-states-in-2016
      “Marilyn Mayo, senior research fellow for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said that statistics show that radical leftists have been dramatically less likely to kill people than their counterparts on the opposite side of the political spectrum. Over the past decade, extremists of every stripe have killed 372 Americans. 74 percent of those killings were committed by right wing extremists. Only 2 percent of those deaths were at the hands of left wing extremists. Mayo told us:

      I don’t want to give moral equivalence to the two sides because one side is fighting against white supremacy. On the Antifa side, they’ve never murdered anyone but there have been many murders done by white supremacists, so we have to be concerned about that movement.”

        AntiFa only defends free speech when it conforms to their sick ideology.

        Otherwise, if you have the nerve to exercise First Amendment rights that oppose their sick ideology they’ll beat you up. Like fascists.

        Like the AntiFa supporter at the Laguna Beach “America First” rally who sucker punched a black man who had the gall to support Donald Trump. Racist and violent liberalism.

        AntiFa is a sick fascist anti-American violent and subversive organization. One of the biggest hate groups on record in the history of the nation.

          The difference between the White supremacists/neo-nazi/fascist types and AntiFa is the leftists aren’t organizing the protests they’re just responding to them.

          • LFOldTimer

            Everyone has a guaranteed right under the First Amendment to assemble and promote their cause, however worthy or unworthy it might be.

            No one has a right to show up and instigate violence on a group that has a lawful permit to exercise their First Amendment rights. Doing so is fascist behavior.

            Don’t distort the truth.

            Yeah, but your guys were yelling “n*gger” and f*ggot and they were decked out in camo and carrying assault rifles and torches. I think they were begging for a confrontation.

            “It’s a gray area of constitutional law, but several experts said this week that the white supremacists may have crossed a line into what is known as unprotected speech.

            In 1942, the Supreme Court ruled that “fighting words” are not protected under the First Amendment. The Court defines fighting words as “those which by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace.”

            The AntiFa fascists came equipped with masks (to hide their identities), helmets and clubs to use as weapons. They came to fight. That was their intent. They were the instigators of violence to suppress and thwart others of their lawful right to assemble and promote their cause under the guarantees of the First Amendment.

            The law does not protect violence over mere words that are considered to be pejoratives. To claim it does distorts the truth.

            Even Nancy Pelosi condemned AntiFa for for their recent unlawful behavior in Berkeley when they violently attacked peaceful pro-Trump advocates who were exercising their First Amendments rights.

            Those who defend such behavior are anti-American and subversives.

          • justanon

            You right-wingers want to smear the left with AntiFa to cover up and distract from the real threat, the violent right-wing extremists.

            The truth is AntiFa is a small and loosely organized group compared to White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis and fascists, and their “threat” has been blown all out of proportion by right-wing hate radio and blogs.

            Make no mistake, there is NO moral or threat equivalency between AntiFa and right-wing extremist hate groups and anyone who says there is, is lying.

          • LFOldTimer

            AntiFa goes deep to the heart of progressive liberalism.

            Just look at how you defend it!!! ha.

            You love to hate.

          • justanon

            “AntiFa goes deep to the heart of progressive liberalism.”

            No, it doesn’t.

            It is a relatively small and poorly organized group that NO ONE even heard of until a couple of months ago, as opposed to the KKK, Nazis and Sovereign Citizen groups.

            You right-wingers just don’t want to take RESPONSIBILITY for the REAL THREAT that the right-wing extremists pose to this country, no, you’d rather try and make-up false equivalencies about AntiFa and PRETEND that they are the ‘real’ threat.
            It’s an old trick and only a fool would fall for it.

            Time for you right-wingers to reign in the hate.
