Just keeping this short and sweet, but I am a liberal, I support antifa and I have disliked the american government since the 80s. That being said I dont support acts of violence I feel that no matter what it is unjustified. I just wanna say that I find this whole "alt-right" movement to be extremely ironic. years have "snowflake" liberals have been made fun of by this movement for being "too sensitive" but know that they are actually active and are fighting for their own beliefs you label them as savages? thats such a bullshit double standard. Be for attacking other ideology's try to understand the hypocrisy's because news flash CONSERVATIVE VALUES CAN BE JUST AS FUCKED UP WHEN YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT THEM

Why are getting worked up because of the American government, when you're Canadian?

I'll believe they are 'fighting for their beliefs' when they start their 'worker's revolution' instead of just attack people they don't like. Who happen to be the blue collar workers they claim to be 'fighting' for.

Trying to discredit someone based on their current location is dumb. There are many gifted political activists and such in the world outside the USA who know more about the US Government than most Americans.

In any case, I do not see a point for making this thread.

You must be a side supporter that doesn't actually read antifa literature or any history of antifa.
If you did you wouldn't make the statement I quoted. They do support violence as a form of
protest, right or wrong they do support it. They do not have a "non aggression principle" stance.
How can you support an organization that believes violence is a political tool but yet say you're
against violence?

Alt-right means an alternative to conservatism. So, yeah, if you're trying to say you think conservative values are fucked up, then you find yourself agreeing with the alt-right. But hey, keep supporting antifa so free speech will be silenced and you'll never know anything like what conservatism is, what alt-right is, and what the differences are.

Not sure what's more off base, the original post of this thread or the people who consistently rag on the politics of other nations now deciding that people from other nation's can't express opinions about theirs.

No the original post was from a Canadian, the first post after that was from an English person. What would OP being in England even change anyway?

Crunchyroll tracks the first "post" as the first person to reply to the original post. Make a thread and it will say "0 comments".

My point was the first person to reply who was basically saying "stay in your own business" was not from america, so how would

"the people who consistently rag on the politics of other nations now deciding that people from other nation's can't express opinions about theirs."

>"liberals are just fighting for their own beliefs, they're not savages"



limousine set on fire just half a mile from Donald Trump's victory parade and protesters lobbing rocks into lines of police.
...
“They started throwing bricks at first, then they started throwing the trash bin but that didn’t work, then they picked up metal spikes and just started smashing the windows out,” he said. “They had all that stuff in their backpacks.”
...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/20/anti-donald-trump-activists-try-block-access-inauguration/



Police said protesters damaged vehicles, destroyed property and set small fires while armed with crowbars and hammers. All 217 people arrested were charged with rioting, said Newsham, noting that the group caused "significant damage" along a number of blocks.

meanwhile...Trump supporters help Muslim business owner whose limo was burned by rioters



There were 21 reported arrests, including for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, said Officer Byron White of the Berkeley Police Department. Eleven people were injured. At least six were sent to a hospital, including a stabbing victim. Police seized poles, stun guns, and knives, White said.

in short: "i don't support violence, but if they do so in protest to Trump, that's totally ok. they're just fighting for their own beliefs. stop calling them savages!"

i'm not even a conservative, but when people throw tomatoes at the other side without a careful self-introspection, i can't help but roll my eyes.

by the way, sitting here and playing the blame game won't do any good. maybe instead of throwing tomatoes at each other, we should go and vote for people who appear to be somewhat competent, like this scientist

also

The original post os still the one that starts the thread, not the first reply, what the heck did you think OP meant? And you do realise there are other posts in this thread than the one from the English guy, right? If you don't see how what I'm saying applies to her post then (brace yourself, I'm about to drop a radical idea here) maybe it wasn't meant to apply to her.
