Why haven't I seen one right-wing post condemn the vandalism, arson and rioting by right-wingers?

Much or most of the violence, vandalism, arson, and rioting involves 1% of the people at protests who are using the protests as cover, who oppose the protesters, and are people like white supremacists or other such groups.

I've seen right-wing posters criticize the acts constantly - but only by wrongly lumping them in with the protesters. I haven't see one of them criticize the right-wingers who are committing the acts. Why not? Why do they only make false condemnations claiming the protesters did it?

Do these people committing the criminal acts generally agree with the ideas of people like Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell?

If no, then they're not "right wingers".

Hmmmm, if all the vandalism and property destruction is actually from white supremacists why has there ever been an objection to bring in fed authorities to stop it? Who knew lefties were so sympathetic to white supremacists.

You'd have to be the world's biggest dumbass to believe the majority of the violence we've seen with these protests are being committed by the Right.

Hmmmm, if all the vandalism and property destruction is actually from the right and done by white supremacists why has there ever been an objection to bring in fed authorities to stop it? If lefties really believed it was all or mostly done by righties, they would be on the side of law enforcement so not only is it a lie, they know it is.

Lie #1: the straw man that "all" the destruction is from the right. The statement was "much or most". Lie #2: the objection is not to stopping the destruction, it is to federal, unmarked people doing things like shooting protesters without justification and kidnapping people off the street, instead of leaving that policing to the local police. Lie #3: Democrats are on the side of law enforcement doing it correctly generally.

If you truly believed it was mostly from white supremacists you wouldn’t give a **** how they were treated by law enforcement. It’s a lie that it’s mostly from white supremacists and you know it. Dems have not been on the side of law enforcement once or condemned violence toward them since this began, so that’s another lie.

It’s a lie and by the way they always take the side of rioters over police, they know it is.

Because there are no right-wing factions involved in the protests. Why should there be?

The GOP has nothing to protest about as we are happy and content with our President, Vice-President, Senate and Supreme Court as well as the 100+ Trump appointed judges.

Yes, I would, but how law enforcement treats the criminals is not the issue here. It's how the federal, unmarked forces are treating the peaceful protesters, mostly. (The issue of the protests is when police wrongly harm black people especially).

It’s a lie that it’s mostly from white supremacists and you know it.

Insinuate I posted a lie and you will not be read. You will back off immediately.[/quote]

No, your post is a lie.

Democrats repeatedly have supported law enforcement when doing the right thing. I have posted that repeatedly.

Democrats have condemned the violence repeatedly as well, as I have.

As to who is committing the violence, numerous people arrested for the crimes have been while people not part of or opposed to the protests. An example on who is doing it from the NYT:

Mike Griffin, a longtime activist in Minneapolis, said the demonstrations in his city attracted people he had never seen before. They included well-dressed young white men in expensive boots carrying hammers and talking about torching buildings. “I know protests, I’ve been doing it for 20 years,” he said. “People not affiliated with the protests are creating havoc on the streets.”

If it is happening, analysts said, it is probably arbitrary acts by individuals rather than an organized effort.
