    Sorry, but I consider bringing firearms to a political rally in order to intimidate people, an act of passive violence.
    Unlike you, some believe that armed civillians are safer civillians. You may as well be giving that argument ammo.

    bringing firearms to an angry political rally, is an act of intimidation using weapons that can kill.

    that is not cool...nor peaceful.

    Socalist/progressive rallies are from the left.
    Socialists parties are the left yes. But your question was "which party" implying democratic or republican...

    Pro-illegal immigration riots/rallies are typically supported by the left.
    Ok.....
    So your saying if a riot breaks out the left supports that riot?


    Union riots/rallies are typically done/supported by the left.
    Haha when was the last union riot in the US!?

    I guess if there are all of those things on the right, you could count any sort of violent protests of the labor movements in the Industrial revolution, the Black Panther Movement, etc. as left-wing. Although I would say that these didn't necessarily represent their parties' views (the labor movement was more of a grass-roots thing at first).

    My conclusion: Radicals on either side tend to be quite violent. Quantifying it would be essentially impossible.

    To me the left typically has more, and naturally leftists believe conservatives have more.

    Do you think there's a way to roughly estimate which groups within either side are more violent?
    Seems to me the left is the more violent of the two groups. Conservatives tend to be older, more mellow, relax in a beach chair demonstration type of crowd. Not that there aren't exceptions to that. Whereas Liberals tend to be younger and more energized

    Just like the racial epithets supposedly voiced to Rangel at that one TP rally, right? The ones that nobody ever caught on video?

    the OP thread and OP title are asking two different things.

    the answer to the OP title is "neither", since Republican nor Democrat rallies really ever get violent.

    if the question is instead left vs. right, which is a MUCH broader spectrum of though, then I would say Left rallies tend to be more violent, while Right rallies tend to have move violent language, racism, homophobia, and gun-possession...which is an act of intimidation with a deadly weapon.

    Re: Which Political Party has more Violent Rallies?

    I tend to see that true left wing protests like progressive, socialist, communist, anarchists, or some sort of anti globalization/capitalist/free trade/police brutality protests are more in your face because the left seems to be more about having their voice heard via protest and hitting the streets, but i tend to see the left get violent when 1)the cops come in and start beating the **** out of protesters or start abusing them or 2) when some violent anarchists start breaking **** and the media paints the whole left wing as violent (an example of this is the WTO protests).

    You know very well that I did not mean the Union from the 1800s.
