    It may suit you to believe that, but the argument is incorrect. How are antifa "every bit as hateful and demonstrably more violent than knuckle-dragging white supremacists..."? Are they pulling weapons and shooting in crowds? Are they driving cars into crowds? The moral equivalency argument once again fails.

    If you lump everyone with hair in there too, why, we have a real problem.

    Agree with you 1000%. You know when Nancy Pelosi can see the problem there is a big problem with the left calling out the violence! The
    letter writer wants to blame one side for all the the trouble and closes a blind eye to Antifi thugs.

    The last line in the letter is: "All Americans should stand shoulder to shoulder against your hatred and bigotry."
    Does the left stand against Antifi? That is questionable right now. Maybe they are starting?

    What I find curious is the wall to wall coverage by the left's MSM of this tiny sliver of a fraction of a percent of the population here in the US.

    If I read the numbers right, even the alt-left ideologues at the Southern Poverty Law Center places their numbers at something below 20k in total between all of them.

    As despicable as these idiots are, why all this attention?
    You are correct that the numbers are tiny. They only seem large because they get so much media attention and are such a prominent target for outrage from the left who will not acknowledge that 99% of the right also denounces and disavows any support for them.

    I have been watching this phenomenon of the PC police and the ultra extreme reaction to anybody who doesn't conform to the ideology of the left. It isn't set in granite yet, but I am coming to a pretty firm conclusion that the left is confirming day by day. This thread is a good example.

    I think the left doesn't really believe in anything. Everything they stand for is some kind of fuzzy notion of utopian scenario of how they think they want things to be or how they think things are. If you ask any one of them to really explain their point of view coherently and specifically, it is an extremely rare leftist who can do so. They will say something like say all healthcare should be single payer, but they will not even entertain or consider any negative components that come with that. Anybody who disagrees with them about that is bad, wrong, hateful, greedy etc. And of course racist and/or sexist and/or. . .

    Their whole focus is on those who disagree with them, who see things differently, or who hold un-PC opinions about anything. Such people are immediately dumped into Hillary's 'basket of deplorables' and labeled as something awful. And a huge target is put on such people for punishment and/or destruction. Certainly such people should not be allowed to speak or do business or otherwise enjoy ordinary liberties that most of the left demands for itself. Those on the left will spell out their sins that to the leftists are glaring even as the left cannot coherently define the actual sins that are being committed. The sin is not thinking like the left.

    With some exceptions, the left isn't driven by ideology or theory or anything concrete or clearly definable. They seem to be driven by their own illusions of superiority, of being better people with the goal of eliminating all who don't toe the righteous line of correct thought. They cannot argue without using ad hominem and personal insults. They can't defend their point of view because they can't define it, so they attack the 'evil opposition' who dares to challenge them. Challenge them on anything and you will be personally attacked.

    It is a little scary when you think about it.

    No, it hasn't fallen apart due to any reason. Subpoenas have been issue, homes raided with search warrants, grand juries have been empaneled, etc... Your desperation to downplay those facts is almost palpable.

    I don't have to. My father fought in WWII. I was raised with an understanding of such things and learned at an early age to appreciate the difference between free speech and violent actions. Furthermore, if your intention is to equate "deplorables" with white supremacy, you're attempting a false equivalency, and I'm not interested in that BS. I have no need to condemn anything to pass your litmus test, except perhaps condemning the disingenuous nature of your test.
