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.
I'm disinclined to trust the judgment of the group that classified Pepe the frog as a hate symbol.
A shining light in a sea of stagnant bong water.

I don't need to prove anything. No one in their right mind would suggest there isn't a faction within Antifa that sees violence as the answer, however, statistics speak for themselves.

74% right wing extremists, 2% left wing extremists.

So 24% were moderate extremists?

All deaths attributed to violence of this kind should be condemned, regardless of whether it attributed to left or right.


1) All violence should be condemned, or just the deaths?

2)If all violence isn't to be condemned, then what is your acceptable level of political violence? A punctured lung, a broken arm, a bloodied face, or slap mark that fades away in five minutes or less? Note - that's an IF/THEN conditional question based on your answer to 1. If you answer is all violence, than the question does not apply.

Thought I'd already said all violence.

You keep saying 'alt left' when what you really mean is 'extreme left', 'hard left' or 'aggressive left' or good old 'anti-fascist'. What they believe in, moderate left also typically believe in.
The people on the left don't all believe the same thing, though they frequently share many beliefs in common. If they were actually as unified as the MSM likes to portray them, they would have a slam dunk in every election, and all the politicians running for democrat would have the same positions.

Witness the angry internal debate going on right now about whether the DNC should incorporate some pro-life elements in their platform.

"

As for the escalation in violent reactions? That's easy to trace. It's sort of scary when the future president openly endorses and encourages violence against your movement. Which he did. On multiple occasions. And scared people, as the prequels made clear in their own stilted eloquence, easily become angry people.


That paints a cohesive picture, but it isn't a photograph and could never be one, because the recent surge in violence began when Soros started funding BLM. It was a prelude - an opening salvo to get the democratic base fired up for the upcoming elections.

Unless Donald Trump has a time machine, he didn't go back in time to inspire this:



Oddly enough, the violent BLM just sort of evaporated after Trump won the election and Soros had nothing to gain from continuing to fund them.

If you did, I must have missed it. Thank you for clarifying it.

Oh, and regarding the arrest statistics: only an idiot would fail to acknowledge the concept of degree when it comes to crime.


In the crimes of those listed/attributed- there was a stabbing in the hand, a metal pipe to the head that will require over a dozen stitches, there was one stabbed to death, 2 shot and killed, and assorted other violent crimes serious enough to warrant a felony.

Moreover, there is a large swathe of society that not only thinks it is ok to act as a violent mob, but is starting to do it. The mob is beginning to think that whatever they want is what the government should be. We've seen what happens to societies and nations where the rule of law breaks down. Chinese history is essentially an example of why you don't let the mob get the upper hand. ISIS is another great example of what occurs with destabilization. Who is it that funds and advocates the collapse of governments so that globalism can take over?

Soros.

As Kellog pointed out, the bulk of serious assaults and murders linked to political inclination can be attributed to the right. A thousand people arrested for destroying public property or protesting aggressively to get their point across are still to me far less accountable than one person shooting another for their views.


The the shooting of five people in Dallas (while Obama was still president) by the Alt-Left should be at least as important as one person killed in Charlottesville, since it was conducted by a trained soldier of the NBPP, a designated hate group by the SPLC.

I can't believe you played the Soros card. There really is no hope for you at all; you've been completely consumed by ridiculous conspiracy theories. Seriously, perhaps a little less Breitbart and more Pepe the frog.

You keep saying 'alt left' when what you really mean is 'extreme left', 'hard left' or 'aggressive left' or good old 'anti-fascist'. What they believe in, moderate left also typically believe in. They're just zealous and violent about it.

I was under the impression that the "moderate left" was for free speech and for freedom of assembly, not against it, but if you say so. Thinking abut it, not even a year ago I recall the "moderate left" (the ones not wearing black masks and hoodies), were already shutting down Nazi Jew speakers like Ben Shapiro & Milo. Dem Nazis...

So, yeah, looks like the terrorists and moderates all believe in the same thing: a leftist police state.

The fun part is that especially Milo got even more popular because the alt-left tried to shut him down. If he had just done his speech in front of a couple hundred kids nobody would care. Instead he and the alt-left caused meltdowns all over the internet and he got famous. So seeing Berkley as a win for the alt-left makes me chuckle. They always shoot themselves in the foot.
GGG banning all political discussion shortly after getting acquired by China is a weird coincidence.
