Hypocrisy at Charlottesville – So is violence from the left acceptable?

The brutal events in Charlottesville not only reveal a national tragedy but also a national hypocrisy.

We do not have to agree with what the Nazis and white nationalists stand for to defend their constitutional right to assemble and speak. The courts have long ruled that even hate speech is protected speech.

Had there been no counter demonstration and media spotlight, a few hundred racists would have gathered in Charlottesville and had no impact on the national conversation.

Instead, they were met by the ongoing violence of the Antifa and the hate group Black Lives Matter and a police force that stood down, just as the campus police  did when the Antifa attacked people at the University of California, Berkeley.

    Conservatives are missing something important about Antifa. In Europe, these groups operate as the armed wings of conventional political parties. Antifa is there to crack heads on behalf of various party leaders. The police stand down is on orders from up high.

    We are seeing the same dynamic here. The major of Berkeley is tight with Antifa leaders there. It’s very dangerous. These are goon squads, but controlled ones nonetheless.

      I rather expect it’s the same here, but nobody is talking about the obvious fact that they’re the modern iteration of the KKK. Beholden and fully employed by the Dems

      • Adam

        In Europe, Antifa and the police operate in tandem at times, and usually in a way that silences or intimidates government critics. Antifa will show up at your house and beat you if serves a pols interests. It’s coming here.

        The use of Antifa as a political weapon is part of what has destroyed democracy in Europe. It might do the same here.

        The right would certainly be advised to protect its interests before it’s too late.

          Europe is mostly unarmed.

          “Second amendment people” as Trump calls them might have something to say about them doing that.

      YOU are a Revelation.
      Do you have any more Wisdom to unleash ?

    • Shebel

      I don’t think that Conservatives are missing much of any thing.
      I do think that Liberals are missing most of Everything.

      You are quite correct— it is scary when our media sides with the lawless and the violent.
      Maybe you should grab a backbone and pick a side.

        I suggest you brush up on your reading comprehension skills. Adam’s comment was understood by everybody else except you, Shebel. Think about that.

    NC gov calls for bringing down Confederate monuments

    ‘I’ve asked the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources to determine
    the cost and logistics of removing Confederate monuments from state
    property as well as alternatives for their placement at museums or
    historical sites where they can be studied in context.’

  • In a word, yes.

  • Shebel

    Violence from the LEFT is totally acceptable .
    Just as long as you HATE— USA.

  • Shebel

    Why the Hell does our Government want to be
    CONTROLLED— by a new World Order?
    This is why they HATE Trump.
    He does NOT agree. GOOD.

    If this was honestly presented to the People—
    We would have a Revolution.

  • Shebel

    What does that circle with the 3 arrows mean?

  • Shebel

    Look at that 4 eyed asshole on the right—– he is actually posing.
    Shit.

    I am glad that Trump is honest enough to call out you paid Traitors.

  • Shebel

    So what the fuck do these assholes want —-
    Or do they even know ?
    Or care.

    More importantly—- why are our MSM in Cahoots with these assholes ?
    Is it ALL about MONEY

  • Shebel

    Sooo— both sides are paid , by the same bunch – to achieve the same goal ?

    This is good . What is the Goal?

  • Hard Little Machine

    You can munch your cheese and sip your wine and point out the nastiness of these people and hope that all that needs doing is you pointing it out. The scales will magically fall from our eyes.

    Good luck with that.
