Here is my point. Say I start a group called ANTICO for "Anti Communist". And I use as a rallying cry a small radicalized group of leftists preaching the teachings of Stalin that does not enjoy any great degree of support from the rest of left-wing voters.Then I go around to a considerable number of left-wing rallies, many by those who denounced the Stalinsts, call them communists, and physically attack them. I start violent rallies when Elizibeth Warren or Bernie Sanders come to speak at my school.I start massive riots where I burn police cars and smash in the front window of Sportsman's Warehouses in my rural conservative community.What am I?An anti-communist, or a terrorist?
Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

1. Chances are that they were, but if you would like me to find you some sources that more conclusively link ANTIFA and violent demonstrations via it either being a declared ANTIFA rally or them sporting ANTIFA paraphernalia, I can find you numerous sources like this with almost no effort.2. One person doesn't represent a group. Violent ANTIFA riot, after hateful ANTIFA rhetoric, after violent ANTIFA riot, after hateful ANTIFA rhetoric, after violent ANTIFA riot does characterize their group pretty well. At this point there has been so much violence surrounding that group I am comfortable in saying that if you aren't condemning them and trying to distance yourself from it, then you're probably pretty chill with what's going on whether you will admit that or not. It's not a broad group like "The right wing" or "The left wing". It's a specific organization called together for a specific purpose. If you belonged to the boy scouts, and there was a news story about boy scouts starting violent riots every other week would you stay a member of the boy scouts or just be like "I support the core premises under which the boy scouts were founded but I can no longer support the organization as it is today."3. I've already answered your question. I am a Libertarian. Libertarianism is a belief that the goal of government should be reduced in our lives to only it's minimal necessary functions. As one Libertarian candidate said "I want to live in a world where a gay married couple can legally protect their pot field with fully automatic machine guns." Fascism dictates total government control over nearly every aspect of life. Government controlled industry, loss of freedom of speech, loss of right to bear arms, etc. Not only am I opposed to it, I would say my own personal political leanings are far further from true fascism than the average ANTIFA member.
I am against fascism. I think fascism, alongside communism, is one of the worst forms of government ever conceived. If I met Hitler, or any Nazi who worked at a concentration camp I would strangle them to death with my bear hands and feel good about it.But I am absolutely opposed to a bunch of left wing terrorists labeling any ideology they disagree with "fascism" and then perpetrating violence against the groups and individuals they have deemed to be fascist. That is what I am saying. Is that clear enough for you?
The media's bias doesn't lean that way bud. Nor did they fake a million dollars in damage to Portland in the post election riots. And that's just what happened in the state where I currently reside.
As I've repeatedly stated. I condemned the white nationalists. Every right winger on my Facebook who posted on the subject condemned them.I still condemn ANTIFA, because just like the people running people down with cars, they are terrorists. Plain and simple. It's not just that single case of them smashing a Starbucks. It's all of it.It's the BLM riots, in the post-election protests, it's police having to protect conservative speakers....
Um no. It's protect conservatives speaking. The speakers at Berkeley were not nazis. They were right-wing speakers labeled as nazis. Ben Sharpio is not a nazi, Milo is not a nazi. They are right wing speakers who say a lot of things that many people find offensive, but they aren't Nazis. They are like our equivalent of Micheal Moore and Bill Maher.Thank you for cutting me off there because it shows who you really are. Someone willing to label anyone you disagree with as a nazi. And it's people like you that make us hate groups like ANTIFA, and see the hidden violence filled messages in quotes like the one Bill Murphy used. I'll look for your face behind the mask at the next Starbucks smashing.
Interesting. All the signs I see say "Milo" not "Richard Spencer"https://www.google.com/search?q=berkeley+riots&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwit97eJ8KDXAhUP42MKHVBbC8gQ_AUIDCgD&biw=1381&bih=799
KInda gotta agree with you, he took it too far by throwing in his own political view. He obviously doesn't know the sites own code of conduct, was a time when people used to get banned for just saying the word "Politics". Now the staff can get away with it.
