    There were many more arrests of leftists protesting the RNC than of righties protesting the DNC.

    Neither were what I would call "violent" really.

    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?
    Uh...really? Because I don't think that and since I know the thread you've pulled this question from, I don't recall any of the liberals in there claiming that either.

    However, I voted "unsure" because I am. On the one hand, I could say the left mostly because I think of the Civil Rights era where violence was pretty widespread. But then I could say the right because I start thinking about anti-illegal immigration, pro-life and anti-SSM activists who get a little rowdy. So, I don't know.

    For every violent act at a rally shown on television, I could list about 10 more liberal and conservative that weren't violent at all. To be honest, I think, in general, violence is perpetuated by such a small amount of the population that it isn't really worth attributing a lean to it.

    Neither PARTY's rallies tend to have significant amounts of violence to really warrant a discussion of any sorts.

    If you're asking which ideology, its likely a bit of a wash with the extremes on both ends having hteir issues.

    wow...all these votes and none for The Right. That is beyond interesting. Violence usually stems from an inability to communicate or understand a situation. Education is the counter-measure for that.

    It's just that I see the many violent groups coming from socialist/Union/illegal immigration groups.

    My earlier premise was that the Tea Party was not violent compared to those left-leaning groups. However, a user whose nam I can't remember proved me wrong and I acknowledge that. Now, I modify my argument in that the TP is less violent than left-leaning groups.

    Then I was curious and wanted to know roughly which groups from the right/left were more violent, on average. I suspect the left, but I don't really know.

    This could easily be replaced with anti-illegal immigration/pro-life/anti-SSM groups.
