CNN chief legal analyst Jeffery Toobin said Trump’s criticism of Antifa is an “appeal to racism” while stating the group “is widely perceived as an African-American organization.” I'm sorry but does anyone see a single black person in that picture? (Or any picture of antifa thugs for that matter). More fake news from CNN
While this meme is not related to their politics, just the fat that they are a bunch of crazy ass white people.... I will entertain your irrelevant argument anyway., So you're saying people who were seriously injured, perhaps even hospitalized are meaningless to you, but if the far right did the same it would be different feelings? If so then why is that your stance? Just going on your last two comments here.
my irrelevant argument is basically: with so many "crazy ass white people" for black people to choose from, anti-fascists seems an unlikely pick. and ya, I have considerably less sympathy for a self described Nazi who feels compelled to actually march getting hurt than an anti-Nazi getting hurt.
Understandable. However, I have yet to see any actual Nazi out here marching. The thimble full of Klan members or actual white supremacists are looked upon poorly by most of us. If you ask me who I feel sorrier for out of the two, I say neither because they are all cut from the same cloth.
Since you would claim that anybody antifa harmed must have been far right anyways (in other words anyone to the right of antifa), and thus doesn't matter, why would you even bother to ask the question?
And why would you argue that antifa isn't violent when they themselves admit they embrace violence to further their cause?
Oh yea someone died LOL. So would it also be okay to mow down Trump supporters if they happened to be walking down a side street like Heather Heyer was? You do know that white supremacists were on Reddit discussing the legalities of running over protesters with their cars in the weeks leading up to this?
If? IF? The nazis on your side have killed dozens of people, DOZENS. And yet, you want to highlight Antifa as the "crazy ass white people?" How about the hillbilly white supremacists walking the streets carrying tiki torches and assault rifles, waving swastika flags and chanting about how Jews won't replace them? No, they're not the crazy ones, right? It's the people who are fighting them that are crazy. GMAFB
Again. Waiting on that to somehow relate to a simple humor meme. Repeating... your type seems to think if a person cracks a joke about this side, that they are somehow in support of "the other" side. Explain this phenomenon to me. Because I don't understand how it works. Or why it exists. You have never and will never see me in support of any type of "hate" group.
It doesn't matter to these guys what you actually support. You called out their nonsense and now you are alt right to them. You are now fair game for beatings, etc. Congrats on losing your humanity because you said something they don't like. Pretty perfect way for them to show off the relevance of your meme, though.
To be honest, I did entertain this guy. But it was not ME who began the whole mess here. At this point I have lost track of the whole mess thanks to the thread problems we have here on the flip. Thanks for stopping by!
Your joke is irrelevant when there is a much larger and more ridiculous joke that you are trying so hard to ignore. You have repeatedly defended Nazi white supremacists in these comments. Meanwhile trying to point fingers at people who have mostly only fought against them. If nazis are the bad people which you claim no one likes, why are you trying so hard to minimize their actions when they have committed some of the most heinous crimes around the country? You might think it's crazy to fight against hate but I certainly do not. I think it's crazy to kill people or want to because they're skin is a different color. That's just downright insane to me.
Maybe you secretly admire Antifa and that's why you want to focus on them. Or maybe you're just an alt-right hypocrite failing miserably at trying to ridicule the left with a dumb, unfunny meme. Policing the comments isn't helping your meme, either, btw.
They wear armbands and masks and want to attack anyone that disagrees with them. If that is not the picture of fascism then please explain how people marching with sticks were being violent before antifa showed up.
"People marching with sticks?" You mean the neo-nazis with the tiki torches? Or the white supremacists carrying assault rifles? Everything about neo-nazism is violence. Their whole approach is to terrorize people in the streets, in their homes. They're not fighting social injustice, or striving for equality. They want to exterminate people with dark skin, or who live a different lifestyle, just like Hitler did. They worship Hitler. Who tf does that?? They're going around murdering innocent people at church, at school, eating at restaurants. *That's* violence. Those are real criminals. And you're tripping cuz Antifa wears armbands? Really?? What's more violent to you? Getting in someone's face or shooting them dead?
there aren't shades of political violence. political violence is political violence. it's not acceptable for anyone. Beating someone with a club because they don't agree with you to try to scare them straight is TERRORISM. Just because they did it first doesn't give you the right.
Blaming the second wrong while the first wrong gets overlooked is weak. "So much for going high when we go low." @@ You don't see the inherent hypocrisy in your position of expecting people to sit idly by while murderous terrorists parade their hate through the streets? These people, as I keep saying and you all keep side-stepping, are KILLING people. Hello, people are DEAD! That doesn't phase you in the least? You're damn right there are shades of political violence. No way in hell does yelling at someone equate murder. Neo-nazis have beaten plenty of people themselves. Just because they did it first doesn't give someone the right to fight back? Are you f-ing kidding me? It behooves true Americans to fight against white supremacy. The movement has been nothing but a scourge across the earth. And if you excuse them, you're supporting them. And if you're supporting them, what does that say about you?
You have a funny definition of yelling. I'll give you a hint: people don't look like this after you "yell" at them. That YOU are excusing this says a lot about you. You're a violent thug who thinks it's okay to attack people with different opinions than yourself. I don't see anyone in ANY of these pictures with a swastika or any other fascist regalia, yet they were physically assaulted to the point of needing medical attention by your "freedom fighters". You're a f**king tool.
The far/alt right is fighting for racism, segregation, and hyper-nationalism. If I were forced to choose, I would choose antifa because at least what they're fighting for is morally good even though I don't agree with the means.
ffs - a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
and to anyone who disagrees with their ways, half of the time the people they attack aren't far right and are just Trump supporters or people at the wrong place at the wrong time. They only scream that they are far right to make their fascism seem okay.
Being triggered by someones opinion is not a reason to attack them, antifa is just a pathetic terrorist group who resort to violence when offended
Being triggered by the color of ones skin is no reason to attack them. Neo-nazis are killing people around the country. KILLING PEOPLE. Why does that not bother you as much as someone on your side getting verbally attacked? You're more concerned with people who are protesting against that, against their hate of everything that's not white (which is hilarious because everyone is mixed nowadays anyway).
i never said being triggered by the colour of someones skin is a good thing, i also know that sometimes the alt right attacks people, in those situations when the alt right does attack it is okay to attack. But it isn't okay to attack protesters who aren't attacking anyone, and it especially is bad to attack a random person because you think they disagree with you. Simply denying that antifa attack people that aren't on the alt right even though there is evidence is extremely ignorant.
So are the americans of the 40s the greatest generation of amazing nazi-killers or a generation of racist white supremacists who went on to ruin the world and create all of your problems? You seem to get your story mixed up sometimes. PS you should probably stop using pictures of people when you despise everything they believe and stood for
They also believed in god, capitalism, isolationism, and american exceptionalism. Don't try to pretend Antifa is in any way shape or form carrying on the traditions of the same group of people they spit on daily. Had Antifa been in the USA during the 40s those same ones you praise for fighting Nazis would've been fighting you, too.
Neither did the soviets or the japanese. How did that generation get on with them? Do you drink constantly or does your brain really not understand anything other than how to mentally divide the entire world into fascists/antifascists? I've heard more meaningful arguments from kids.. several times.
the point is, i dont fear antifa moron. and the only reason you would is if you are khaki wearing torch carrying nazi... and we did fight them at home perhaps you need to do a little reading on the civil rights movement of the 60's... if tiki pants above did not exist, neither would their opposition.
Except antifa attacks people that have nothing to do with neo-nazis or fascists. Anyone who is a republican is apparently fair game. That's political violence and intimidation, and is about as anti-american as you can get. I've read plenty about the civil rights movement of the 60's.. like how the democrats fought tooth and nail to make sure no legislation was passed, and the only reason the civil rights movement was successful is because of republicans. Anything else is revisionist CRAP. You cannot change history just because you don't like it.
No "anyone" or "republicans" are not their target. Torch carrying, nazi, confed flag carrying alt righters are. Are you one? You are another one with the "democrat" and "republican" nonsense... ffs its not hard, parties change, please explain why Roosevelt left the republican party and why Reagan left the democratic party, also please explain why the KKK no longer votes dem... can you do that?
You mean those US soldiers sent in by a president to enforce the constitutional amendment passed by a republican because democrats wouldn't accept integration? Sorry, that's not antifa. That's the opposite.
HAH! Then lets look at some policies between republican presidents of the past and republican presidents of the modern day? Like wise for democrats. Go back even before FDR and the party platforms were the same. Democrats have always leaned socialist, republicans have always leaned libertarian/capitalist. As I said, you can't change history just because you don't like it. The big switch is the biggest load of horseshit, and there is literally NO reliable evidence to support that it ever happened. If you actually believe that the members of the party with the reputation of being the champions of racial integration for a hundred years suddenly decided to throw that away and switch to the party whose reputation was total garbage even though there's no evidence for it... you sir, are a complete moron.
Yea you cant tell the difference, but someone else is the moron? So you mean you are a democrat, they are the kkk right? - https://content.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1894529_1894528_1894518,00.html
