    Which Political Party has more Violent Rallies?

    Does the right or the left roughly have more violent demonstrators?

    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?

    Violent in what sense? I don't recall seeing a lot of violent action from the TP protests or the OWS protests thus far.

    Uhh, not necessarily. No, I don't think there's a way, given that "right" and "left" are terms that are sometimes highly subjective. Also keep in mind that OWS is in no way a homogenous movement. I've seen a lot of posters characterize them as typical hippies and socialists from the age of counterculture, which is an overwhelming generalization. Keep in mind that there are lots of Ron Paul "end the Fed" folks participating in OWS as well, and in a sense their demands overlap (being against the Wall Street bailouts of 3 yrs ago, for instance).

    Kicking/puncing/riots/destruction of property/etc.

    Haven't seen much from the OWS so far, but I've been told there's no evidence for any violence from liberal rallies at all, like G20 or the illegal immigration riots.

    The Democratic party is a "leftwing" party?
    And hell all these protesters in the streets are "democrats" per say?

    Do KKK events count as right wing rallies?

    Right-wing rallies tend to have more firearms, meant to intimidate.

    Sorry, but I consider bringing firearms to a political rally in order to intimidate people, an act of passive violence.

    Leftist, yes. Socalist/progressive rallies are from the left. Pro-illegal immigration riots/rallies are typically supported by the left.

    Union riots/rallies are typically done/supported by the left.

    So the racial epithets, effigies, and destruction of property at some recent union rallies would count, too, I'm assuming?
