President Trump is wrong. "Antifa" and other radical Leftists and anarchists are not "part of the problem." They are the primary problem in cities and universities they attack. They don't respond to violence; they create and start violence in almost every instance. It is the common propaganda of the Communist dominated Left and Democrat Party to misrepresent the people attending these assemblies. Good people can't control whether some extremist minority shows up at their assembly. It is the Leftist press and media distorting who represents who. Anyone continuing to give the Leftist Democrat leadership and lunatic fringe the control of the narrative is continuing the polarization of America. They would sit silently as the radical "Antifa" executed the Trump family, just as the most extreme Bolsheviks murdered the innocent family of Tsar Nicholas in Russia. The Bolshevik arm of the Democrat Party, "Antifa" and "Black Lives Matter" must be stopped and relegated to the trash-bin of history.

Back in the 60s the Russians said they would take over this country and spread communism without firing as shot. These groups are the prophet of Russia come true.

Exactly. The chameleon-like violent Democrat party is a domestic terrorist organization. It should be placed on the Government's list of domestic terrorist organizations, and its members and its fellow travelers rounded up.

Socialist. Wow, which in this country means you want someone else to take care of all your needs. You want someone else to feed you and take care of your education and give you hand outs. Well that sound about right. What's wrong can't stand on your own two feet?

Louis Farrakhan and Rev Wright were STRONG supporters of Obama

From Louis:

"The Jews don't like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that's a good name. Hitler was a very great man."

By your logic, the democratic base are NAZIS.

I think it is OBVIOUS that "Antifascist" is packed with people who hate who HATE white people.

I don't see Antifascist protesting the Black Supremacist Group BLM or complain about Spanish Supremacists who run La Raza......that makes them a Racist Hate Group.

Besides, interrupting a lawful march, sanctioned by a Federal judge, is something the Black Shirts of Fascist Founder, Mussolini, did all the time.

For myself, I am seizing the MORAL HIGH GROUND by using a quote from Romeo and Juliet:

Here is example of the damage the alt-Left is doing.

CBS News - Sunday, August 20, 2017

"A white nationalist marching in Charlottesville was misidentified on social media as University of Arkansas professor Kyle Quinn. The hate mail started pouring in."
"
While Quinn was at that museum in Arkansas, white supremacists were gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia -- and on the Internet, outraged onlookers misidentified Quinn as one of the participants.

Quinn felt his personal safety was threatened. "The most troubling thing to me and my wife, really, was, someone identified where we live, our home address. Any time you have an angry mob and someone says,'Hey, this is where the guy lives,' that's a threat in my book. So we decided to head over to a friend's house for the evening."

"The Internet mob was so aggressive that the real man in the photo -- Andrew Dodson -- came forward, expressing guilt that attacks were directed at Kyle Quinn."

Looks like you're denying as shown last week in Charlottesville the Nazis are an important element of the Republican party base of support for Donald Trump.

I dont know anything about Farrakhan. I would expect Obama's old pastor to support him. Would your support you?

So based on misidentification online your assumption is counter protesters in Charlottesville is somehow responsible?

What connection is there with counter protesters other than your imagination your post is absent that fact.

Can you at the very least identify that all important "Someone" you allure to in your post?

You perverts have aligned some political success with extremely exaggerating the numbers of LGBT in America. Those types of intentional lies end up being a negative influence on voters. Liberal news organs end up having to hide poll results showing increased numbers of voters agreeing with Trump's statements about destroying monuments, history and the extreme Left initiating violence. Now, you think exaggerating the numbers of KKK and Neo-Nazis will garner you support, as your falsehoods about gays did. There aren't enough KKK and Neo-Nazis combined to elect a dog catcher. Transposing the lie won't work for you.
