I am not blind to "the other side of violence". What I saw in Chapel Hill predates social media and all this organizing bullshit.
If not blind than you justify it which means you are justifying political violence.
What happened was Nazis went out "hunting". Found a happy couple and shot them dead. There was no fucking feeding going on at all, no opposition. Only the SHARPs there stood up after and said "We don't want you here." No one else said a word, because people were still getting shot and racism was the norm in the South next to the KKK HQ. SHARPs are not antifa. They were working class kids back then, and probably still are.
I was talking about antifa. They and the Neo-Nazis feed off of each other because antifa holds an ideaology beyond combating racism.
These white supremacists used to have all the power. KKK female membership, when opened, found a million instant new followers. Instant. There was no one opposing them, for decades they did as they pleased from many positions of power.
Opposing to mean what exactly?
The opposition to racism is newer, which is shameful in it's lateness, but I am grateful for it still.
Unless you want to police thought and speech it will always be late or just a generalized view point
Forget antifa and left and right and all that bullshit. This is not that, this is not Europe or communism, This is a country built on blood and discrimination and the shameful way people were and are treated.
Yes. Many nation that have a history have been.
This is about racism that has left the privacy of it's home and entered the street with intent to kill. Opposition to this is necessary. Nazism is not welcome here. These marchers admitted they came for violence, and intended war to begin. They always work towards that. The citizens opposing them, whatever you like to call them, do not want this, do not want hate, do not want Nazism.
Antifa was more than happy to provide a rational outside racism. Moderates do not go off attacking people with bats. Extremists do.
This is easy to understand. Nazis kill people, they show up outfitted for it, and they are opposed by people. As it should be.
Opposed in what way?
Now, you said in your post that "Yet letting antifa attack people as if that is completely fine is going to cause people getting murdered by more than cars.". This is fucked up, because Nazis have been attacking people for nearly a hundred years now. It is not something we wait and see about. We know.
No it isn't. They are playing right into the hands of Neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Go look at one of the leaders latest videos. He is moaning about lawless attacks. He is painting a picture in which they want to claim victimhood. They got exactly what they wanted. That moron is even calling the murder a point for their side. They claim he was provoked by attacks and responded. Go look up NASDP history, they did the exact same thing. They are attempting to frame actions and reaction within the legal code in order to underplay their own views. Now there are militia pledging protection based on 1st and 2nd amendment rights. Which to me is just another BS facade to cover for sympathetic views. It does not take a genius to figure this out.
When we have seen people being shot and killed under the Nazi flag and Heil Hitler and chants against Jews we do feel a bit self defensive. We know where this is going. So when someone declares war against people and promises war to come, people might come out in the street and throw shit at them, or kick them, or try to make them go away. Because Nazis kill people, kill non white people, or autistic people, or people who are perceived to be different. Nazism is not about right to life unless you are blonde and perfect and play their Nazi games.
Endorsement of political violence?
It's intolerable hate. Try to tell me that people shouldn't fight back against such a clear declaration? We should just wait for it? You would wait?
Yes I would because I am not an emotional wreck that turns to violence at the first chance.
If these other white supremacists want to hold peaceful rallies then they need to send the Nazis and the KKK and the violent orgs home, because by marching together they declare an alignment and it is apparent to the rest of the world how they feel about POC and what their intentions are. No one wants it but them, so they will get pushback.
Likewise counter-protestors should do the same. Oh I forgot you seem to endorse political violence when it suits you or when your emotions tell. Your little soapbox speech holds no weight when you can not even maintain a balance view that is applicable to both sides. You seem more interesting in shutting down one side than stopping violence.
