The Proud Boys aren't Antifa and anyone who continues to make false equivalences have no idea what they are talking about

  • They are different and they are worse
  • The Proud Boys have leaders
  • The Proud Boys have multiple ongoing investigations into their members
  • The Proud Boys are an organized domestic terrorist cell
  • The Proud Boys are probably committing fraud and money laundering
  • The Proud Boys apparently aren't all that proud to be proud boys

“This will show jurors that they’re not dealing with a gang and there’s no head of operations,” he said.

What a freaking coward.

The Proud Boys are a right wing extremist group. Antifa are a communist extremist group, which would be LEFT wing extremism.
How anyone can drop the two in the same bucket is beyond amazement, unless of course you think Hitler was a liberal left winger.

That's just the political stuff. Antifa is a relatively disorganized bunch of anarchists that largely yell at racists and nazis. None of the things I listed above. Proud Boys is a much more organized, deliberate, and apparently financially successful group at that. So much so that it warrants FBI investigations.

I don't know if I agree that only "organized" groups deserve scrutiny.
I'm sure of one thing though, and that's that Dems and other liberals who think they have some loose kinship with Antifa are in for a rude awakening, and the violence being done by Antifa is definitely aimed at Dems and libs, too.

"Liberals get the bullet, too"

That's enough for me to want them under scrutiny, I don't give a **** if they're organized or not, LOL.

Your comments are ignorant as they are wrong.

You should have watched the video at your link. I doubt you can dispute anything he says.

Correction. Antifa is a not communist. Some (the portland group) are anarchists. Mainly they are spoiled brats that need to get some discipline.

I've seen enough news video to come to the conclusion that a large portion of them are indeed communist, so I don't see the point in splitting hairs over whether more of them are communist or anarchist, and they can be either or both, and also still be spoiled brats in need of discipline while also being violent toward Democrats and liberals at the same time.

ANTIFA aren't anarchists. They are what the government wants you to believe are anarchists. ANTIFA members generally support the existence of government; in fact, most want more of it to force people they don't like into submission. And, as people that initiate force first-hand to get others to conform to their will, are also a form of government themselves.

Fixed it for ya'. Who gets to designate who is a "NAZI" or "racist"? Hint: Everybody is racist to some extent, so antifa has carte blanche to harass whomever suits their purpose.

I have read several posts from far right conservatives who REALLY do think that Hitler was a liberal left winger. They usually call Hitler a 'socialist' and we all know that the far right always compare socialism with leftwing liberalism.

Yeah, Hitler was "socialist" the way DPRK is "democratic" LOL.
That's a recent phenomenon (in the last ten years) promulgated by the likes of Glenn Beck, D'Souza and Jonah Goldberg in an attempt to inoculate American far right fascists against history.

It's weapons grade historical revisionism.

You folks on the left hate so much you have lost complete touch with reality. We thought, had the expectation you folks were grown enough to cope, now you are already way past far out scary.

So, apparently we really are Shrodinger's Leftists.
A ***** commie snowflake who will beat you up and take away your free speech.

Tucker: “Leftists are effeminate socialists who need safe spaces for their little snowflake feelings.”

Also Tucker: “THE LEFT IS DANGEROUS AND COMING FOR YOUR GUNS AND FREEZE PEACH!”

That it, that what you bring?

Feeble flaccidity proves dangerous when clutched by the crazy... especially those with nothing to lose. Facing extermination, what choice have y'all, eh?

A lot of alliteration by anxious agitators in pumped up posts.

Nice.

However, accurate depictions of your rather well-written opponents merely detract from the fact that you have no argument, just wholly hepped up unfounded hatred.

Yano?

Hate to break it to you but the FBI isn't "the left".

Non sequitur... and so? Make a valid point, bro.

You were shrieking about "the left".

McInnes is trying to get out of Dodge because the FBI considers his band of thugs to be extremists.

It has nothing to do with the "left".

Here's a valid point.
You made a vague and thinly veiled alliteration to "extermination", yes?

Here's the thing:
Trump supporters did show up at the polls in full force on November 6.
You were crushed.
There aren't enough of you in the country to keep Trump in power, should he decide to run in 2020, which I'm convinced he's not going to do, or even enough to help preserve the Trump Party (formerly the GOP) majority in the Senate in 2020.

There aren't enough of you miserable Trumpkinites to keep imposing your hateful, retrograde, blinkered, racist world view upon the rest of the nation. Running the country consists of a lot more than "sticking it to the libtards".
Unfortunately that's all you've got.

It worked once as a fluke.
It's not going to happen again.
America is on to you, and the country is not with you.
You will not be winning again.
Keep that in mind...that is the way it's going to be from here on out.
Your orange man baby cult leader is a loser.
Trumpism, also known as homegrown fascism -- has no future in America.

You are lying which is very sad...this was a very high turnout election, if the R's had not shown up then the D's would have turned up much better than +42 in the House and -2 in the Senate.....this election turned out to be not that special in spite of Trump and all of the efforts to drive him from power from a corrupt and immoral elite class.
