The Violence in Charlottesville

The vast majority of people in the United States have no interest whatsoever in street battles between
the alt-right (better described today in more poignant terms) and the counter-protesters. Most people have
normal problems like paying bills, dealing with kids, getting health care, keeping life together under all the
usual strains, and mostly want these weird people to go away. So, of course, people are shocked at scenes
of young people in the streets of this picturesque town with a university founded by Thomas Jefferson
screaming, “Jews will not replace us.”

It’s hard to see, hard to hear. But they are not going away. For some people with heads full of violent ideology,
what's happened so far is not enough. They imagine that with their marches, flags, uniforms, slogans, chants,
screams, and guns, they will cause history to erupt and dramatically turn to favor them over the people they
hate. Indeed, what is unfolding right now, with real loss of property and life, has gone beyond politics as usual
and presages something truly terrible from the past, something most of us had previously believed was
unrepeatable.

What in the world causes such a thing? It’s not about bad people as such. Many of the young men and women
involved in this movement were raised in good homes and, under normal conditions, would never hurt anyone.
What this is about is bad ideas. They crawl into the brain and cause people to imagine things that do not exist.
It can be like a disease that a person doesn’t even know that he or she has. It causes people to seethe with
hatred for no apparent reason, to long for the extermination of people who have never done anything wrong,
to imagine insane outcomes of social struggles that have zero chance of succeeding . . .

There is no meaningful difference between the alt-right, Klan, white supremicists, Dominionists...

...and ISIS.

Both have a belief in a superior theology and a desire to violently destroy the current order to institute their own.  And both see no problem in genocide to do it.

The only difference is that ISIS had no recourse in the Middle East, whereas here; they can use the power of the ballot box to acquire power.

How many people have alt-right, Klan, white supremicists, Dominionists killed in the past 3 years?
I'll wait patiently while you find the data.
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?

Don't take words *OUT* of my mouth.

I also had:

Which fully explained my post.

And you deliberately removed that to stir up <bleep>.

There is no meaningful difference between the alt-right, Klan, white supremicists, Dominionists...  AND BLM. (fixed it for you)

I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

You know, I actually had a talk with a BLM member.

She explained how she viewed their movement.

It was that all lives mattered, but at the present, blacks lives were not as 'valued' as white lives in the actions of the police.

And the phrase was meant to bring attention to that.

Considering the choking death of the guy in New York just for selling loose cigarettes... as well as other incidences, I can't really blame her.

Imagine how a small town police department would react to a large crowd of young, armed black men holding a meeting in front of a Wal-Mart.  And then imagine a rally for open carry in small town, let's say, Texas.

Let us not forget that the Leftist Groomers of His Heinous Obama from Columbia and other universities had war-gamed the extermination of 25-60 million Americans they said could not be 're-eductated' to accept the new Socialist order.

So all the focus on White ree-bleep saluting like a stupid Nationalist Socialist is a bit ridiculous when comparing their minority to the vast majority of voices in BLM, Anitfa, Hollywierd and the rest of the Community Organizing Commie-Left that burned Ferguson Mo, Baltimore and other places they are itching to get a race war going.

(1) I guess you must have slept through the Ferguson riots and that "Burn the City Down" rhetoric that was even being spouted by the Brown family and BLM crowd.,

(2) Watch what happens when you state "All Lives Matter" or "Blue Lives matter too" to a BLM member or group.

Nope.... the BLM faction is just as  racist as the KKK pukes they fight.

I'm rehashing what she said to me.

And all you are doing is disparaging it.  Care to actually address the points she made?

We already know that there are bad seeds in every group.

   I guess, I'm glad that you Briefers can discuss this current level of depravity in our society, hits and all.
   Personally it scares the $hit out of me and makes me wonder even more.....oh, never mind, carry on.
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don’t let this happen to you.

The question . . . is not the ideas they espouse but the power they seek. Let them rant their heads off---that
is their right, which we cannot afford to infringe---but let us keep from them the political means of depriving
everybody else of the same right.

You just lost me dude. Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization. All lives matter.
