To those attempting to shift blame--Show credible proof pertaining to your statement that the hate we saw was somehow the failt of those on the left showing support for diversity. The idiots with swastikas and tiki tourches were the fools you seem to be defending, you know, the ones spewing filth and hatred. What is your excuse for them?

I went to a vigil for Heather Hayer last night and watched as a young Jewish girl tried to speak about the hatred she saw from those you defend. She started to cry. I tried to comfort her and began sobbing. She ended up comforting me. Hundreds of people there--no fighting, no spews of hatred, nothing but pleas to love all those who are diverse--in whatever fashion.

There is no excuse for Nazi- like animals to do what we saw in Charlottesville on Friday, and to make excuses for their behavior,  or attempt to shift the blame makes anyone doing so just as heinous and disgusting as those who disgraced themselves, their families, this country, the men who once risked and/or gave their lives to fight against Nazi scum, and who were a part in the death of Heather Hayer just as bad as those hate filled animals in Virginia.

   Well this is interesting:  The donald supporters are admiting that they created a group mnemonic for themselves, because it was easier.    They are now sliding down the slope to prove my point.

Alt-right is a manufactured term to lump groups together. As seen in these boards, it allows for the lumping of violent Nazis and Conservatives.

 

So, in the interest of fairness why not Alt-left to lump violent "kill the cops" people with Liberals?


Just one example of the self proclaimed Alt-Right:

Can you give an example of a self proclaimed "Alt-Left"?  Of course you can't.

 

Google self proclaimed Alt-Right if you would ........... there is much information about it.

The term alt-right came about because skinhead, fascist, Nazi, etc. were too easy to spot as what they really were.  The far right needed a bit more legitimacy. Alt-left is a name made up by Donald Trump and Steve Bannon so they can pretend the organizations which stand up to their racist views are "just as bad".  Pure fiction. 


It is very naive to think that both sides don't have their "radical" element in them.  It just appears (to me) that the Alt-left (or radical left) is involved with much more violence and lawlessness.  I'm sure you disagree.

 

I don't care who named either.

I would say, don't be stupid, but then the donald supporters seem intent on embracing the KKK, Neo-Nazi and White nationalists (various renditions) groups as somehow being good for the US.

=================================================

Its that type of thinking that is what is dividing our country as its not so.

Trump"s dislike for the media, and with good reasons and the media's dislike for Trump also for good reasons are dividing our country.

I am on the Right. I find it interesting that those people cannot point to the government of any country that exists today or has ever existed and say "that is the government we want".
