I don't think I've seen one example of either of these things happening

I'm also a bit wary of assigning a spot on a political spectrum to a group of peaceful protesters

I can't seem to find the initial video I saw either.

screenshot of the first video with an "empty" driver seat, at least to my shitty vision.

Then you fundamentally don't understand politics and the political power.

Those "peaceful protesters" were organized by the IWW, ISO, and DSA. All of those are Left groups in the US that advocate for a socialist alternative to corporate capitalism. They were not hippy beatniks with a-political leanings. They are organized groups agitating for structural change

Do not substitute your ignorance with measured nuance.

I have no real connection to any of those organizations, yet I would've been protesting alongside them had this been happening in Raleigh. I'm quite certain that I wouldn't be alone in that category.

These were the flag that was left standing after the right wing neo-nazi's were pushed out of Emancipation Park in Charlottesville yesterday. They drove out the fascist right wing. Notice the clear lack of DNC flags and Donkey images? Centrists didn't show up. The Left did.

Gotcha. I haven't seen any video that's well before the crash. What little before the crash I've seen it doesn't seem like anything had happened, just protesters doing their thing.

As much as I bitched and talked shit about the protestors/rioters in Charlotte last September, what happened yesterday is fucking sickening.

I was MIA most of this weekend and just read up on it this morning. I'm not surprised that there was violence or that people died. But that crazy fucker in office trying to nosedive this country into the ground.

Call these fuckers out. He's deliberately fucking around.

I'm reading all types of retarded shit on Facebook. And comparing BLM to the White Nationalists is like comparing apples to concrete.

amazing only in the sense that it completely highlights the disparity between how we treat radical right wing protests vs protests from the left

Compare that above image with this:




One side wants to eliminate and kill brown people for a "superior race," and the other side wants police to stop shooting them willy nilly.

These white nationalists need something to fight. The counter protests don't help I would say.

If they didn't show up, they wouldn't have made any news and nothing would really have happened.

comparing a rape victim to an angry mob armed with sticks and bats that were out looking for violence is a bit of a stretch, no?

three groups of assholes from opposite ideologies clashed together and it ended badly. Leftists went to an organized far-right event looking to cause trouble, so are we supposed to act shocked that this was the result?

This guy was waiting to do this. He could have waited for a BLM protest that would have occurred naturally, but he was too impatient to wait to commit his terrorist act. So instead he martyred someone marching for peace at a nazi rally.

I'm sure what he really wanted was the crushing force of police and national guard to come in and destroy the counter-protests Erdogan style to let the Nazis assemble in peace. At least based on his past history..

there's plenty of videos of these groups attacking each other with sticks. my personal favorite is the flag vs WD40 flamethrower standoff pic. Trying to pass this off as anything remotely peaceful on either side, Nazi or Commie, is laughable.

eleusis has quite a long history on here taking the side of extremely unwarranted police strength in the face of peaceful BLM protests. I'd assume him.

(And I'm not talking about actual riots like in Baltimore)

I'm just looking at his posts on this page, and it's easy to see why he feels the way he does. The left is flat out encouraging people to go out and punch whatever vague definition of "nazi" we're going with. Antifa "counter-protests" have generally amounted to confronting the alt-right with unprovoked violence.

None of that shit is helpful (actually, it's probably very helpful to the alt-right) and I can only see it getting worse.

I disagree with JesusHChrist here on pre-emotive use of violence but "vague definition of nazi?" They were literally chanting blood and soil. Some even had nazi flags.

Of course there were actual Nazis that showed up. And of course running over people with a car is FAR worse than anything the left did. But you still can't take those instances and paint the entire rally with that picture. It's not helpful to misrepresent your enemy.

Hi, not saying we need to tolerate racism. But if you don't tolerate speech, you foster movements like this. You can't suppress thought, you can only combat it with thought.

There's a reason why the ACLU has, and continues to, defend the alt-right's freedom of speech.

The nazis went to the march with shields, and armed militias in fatigues. They openly attacked minorities. Oh, and a vehicle was used and attempted to kill about 30 people.

I'm not promoting violence. But I'm not condemning self defense, either.

And I'm sure as fuck not going to tell people to just stay home and let nazis march through their town un-opposed

It seems like an extreme sensitivity to anything that could be misconstrued as identity politics. In this case, calling it a neo-nazi and white supremacist rally is simply confirming what they profess literally to be.

Okay, you guys are correct about the makeup of this rally, but it's beside the point.

We have a large portion of the left who thinks our anthem should be "punch nazis", and a sizeable portion that is following through. When that is the standard for counter-protest, violence is to be expected from both sides.

I'm not against self defense, and I'm not defending ANYONE on the right or the left who chose unprovoked violence. Maybe the nazis started it, maybe antifa started it, doesn't matter. I just think it's important to push back on the "punch nazis" garbage. It's an easy enough thing for us to do. Let's not give them any more fuel.
