That's the guy who purposefully got himself beat up, right? We already knew long ago that he is a supporter of far right groups, so why is this news? He should be in jail for his right wing propaganda and hate speech but fat chance in that country.
"He should be in jail for his right wing propaganda and hate speech"
Hmm. Funny how the people who despise fascists act a lot like fascists.
Just so I have this straight, you're saying that you don't have a problem with a journalist hearing plans for violence and not reporting on them? That's absolutely fine with you?
If it's proven these guys were plotting an attack on innocence and Andy heard this and knowingly kept it quiet then - no I'm not saying that's ok either. But neither is beating somebody up for political reasons - and possibly giving permanent brain damage in the process.. You know, the violent act that actually DID occur? Meanwhile, many seem to be ok with THAT..
I mean.. I feel like if you submit that a conspiracy to cover up or fail to report on a violent act is wrong (which yes, I agree it is).. Why then is an ACTUAL act of violence ok?? Just b/c it's the far left carrying out the act rather than the far right? Bs!
And Klantifa wouldn't have even known about this at the time they were bashing in Andy's skull anyway, right? As far as they knew he was just a reporter filming the scene..
Maybe it's just b/c I'm pretty center-left on the left right spectrum that to MY eyes political violence = political violence. Period. Doesn't freaking matter what tribe you belong to. It should ALL be shunned.
Agreed. It seems that the Left is moving so far left that anyone who is Center-Left is viewed as a "far right" neo-nazi. Either you come with them all the way on their decent into communism or you don't come at all.
I was watching Dave Chapelle's newest comedy special. There were two spots that I found really interesting. One he said he's going to do impressions and the second one he just said, "In 10, 15, 20 years, it doesn't matter when, but I'll find something you did wrong and I'm going to have you ruined or cancelled." He asked the audience who that was and you could hear a bunch of them calling out Trump. Chappelle said, "That's you all." Then he went on to describe the Kevin Hart/Oscars situation and later touched on me too.
The second one was during a Q&A after his special was over. One guy asked him who he thought was going to win the election in 2020. He said that Trump is a much better chance than a lot of people on his side think, as I'm sure he would be considered center left. He also said that the way his side is talking right now he doesn't think they're going to win.
Unfortunately for many on the left, they can't see any of this because the only thing it seems they can think of is "orange man bad."
