And another one bites the dust. Man, I was really hoping to get a chuckle from reading comics, today. Not politics.
Valid criticism. If only the Republicans would shove through their agenda like the Democrats do. We’d already have repealed Obamacare, reversed the Iran deal, started building the wall, reduced taxes, overhauled welfare, and reformed immigration. Of course if they did that, you’d be screaming at that. The Republicans either a) care what their constituents actually want or b) are too scared of losing their next election. I’m guessing a little of column A, a little of column B. Either way, the Dems win, the country loses.
When has Alt-Right ever shown up with guns? Seriously, they wouldn’t be allowed to assemble. That’s just misinformation.
However, who are the real thugs that wear a uniform, and are armed… uniform of all black, face covered. And armed with bats, tear gas, “piss bombs” and bike locks.
And has been labeled a terrorist group.https://www.infowars.com/new-jersey-homeland-security-officially-lists-antifa-as-a-terrorist-organization/
The SPLC is a money-making scam that labels anyone right of Bill Clinton a hate group.https://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-61963980.htmlhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/dana-milbank-hateful-speech-on-hate-groups/2012/08/16/70a60ac6-e7e8-11e1-8487-64e4b2a79ba8_story.html?utm_term=.4458ab777a1ehttp://www.thesocialcontract.com/artman2/publish/tsc_20_3/tsc_20_3_vinson.shtml
Also, link me to a single Tea Party event that went violent. You can’t. Meanwhile there were rapes and killings at Occupy movements. (Same time frame)http://abcnews.go.com/us/sexual-assaults-occupy-wall-street-camps/story?id=14873014http://abcnews.go.com/US/occupy-deaths-make-oakland-salt-lake-city-burlington/story?id=14939867
Antifa’s the one showing up in uniforms of black and masks, armed with bats, bike locks and pepper spray. And excepting Charlottesville, the only ones ending thing with violence.http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/01/us/milo-yiannopoulos-berkeley/index.htmlhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/06/03/ugly-bloody-scenes-in-san-jose-as-protesters-attack-trump-supporters-outsidhttp://www.eastbaytimes.com/2017/05/24/berkeley-college-professor-arrested-as-assault-suspect/e-rally/?utm_term=.5ca3e690df0b
And hit it square in the middle. That’s often the hard part.
Oooh, burn. /s
Both sides are and have for years been vilifying and dehumanizing the other. Think “deplorables”, calling each other nazis, fascists, racists, hate mongers, terrorist-supporters, baby-killers. Even “snowflakes” is dismissive. They use demagoguery to shine a spotlight on the worst of it and presenting it as the norm, for the “other side”. Politicians saying the other side “will kill millions if their policies are passed”. It’s war-time propaganda.
The media feeds into it for ratings. You’ll tune in if you feel aggrieved, conflicted. Facebook shows you you’re in the right by tailoring your feed to what you want to see. You only see the news articles that reinforce your point of view. You drop friends who don’t agree with you. Your remaining friends and other societal pressures make sure a different point-of-view is seen as radical, out-there, extreme.
If you no longer see the other side as human, you start to consider that they’re not worth protecting or listening to. In fact, listening to them is treasonous or somehow promoting hate speech. While you don’t support violence per se, Antifa is only doing what needs to be done to eradicate the “other point of view”. “Those people” aren’t real Americans, they don’t believe what you do, they must not be allowed to say what they want to say. But they’re still saying it, they’re still being voted into office, they’re still pushing their agenda. This is dangerous! The future of the country is at at stake! They must be stopped BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
