    Sssshhhh, I wanted him to run with his "facts" a little bit more. The hole he was digging himself wasn't quite deep enough yet.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    It is a political movement, with a few disparate localized groups but not unified singular national organization, similar in setup to the early days of the "tea party movement". Or comparable to, well, the "alt-right" right now. There is no overarching group called the "alt-right", rather it's a political movement, with various people who identify with the general mindset, ideology, and methodology and others who are organized in various smaller localized groups that would fall under that movements umbrella.

    Here's one example of a localized group of them based out of Portland, which is one of the big hotbeds for the Antifa movement in america atm.

    If you find their viewpoints idiotic or repulsive then do what I do: stay the **** away from them. There's no law that saws you have to show up too. If they get out of hand the riot police will handle them.

    It's not worth wasting your weekend, or possibly getting hurt or thrown in jail for a couple of days.
    I'd have to agree. There is no way I would be within 100 miles of those scumbags. But, what they did last night was not peaceful protest. Actually, just the opposite, they formed a mob and assaulted a peaceful prayer group while shouting "White Power" and some stupid **** about Jews.

    The "facts" are cherry picked and they always have been. Both sides (left and right) cherry pick, its what they do. If "right wingers" - you know, those who cling to their bibles and their guns, were really dangerous, they would have taken over by now. So enjoy your fail sandwich. I've heard they go better with a little mayonnaise and a pickle.
    I'm merely demonstrating that right wing terrorism is a common thing. You suggested it is insignificant and then when displayed proof you hand waved it all away as lies and conspiracy. Your argument involves a sandwich and a bizarre "if then" pulled straight out of your ass.

    There were 12. And 45 did not condemn the neo-Nazis or white supremacists. 45 gave them cover as do those who defend them.

    Yep. They are terrorists. A bunch of Trump voting terrorists. And the president REFUSES to specifically call them out on it.
