    Adding to this, White Supremacy tends to be on the conservative side (obviously the VERY extreme) of things because that notion is what our country was founded one. Conversely, thing's like Black Supremacy, is on the extreme liberal end of the spectrum due to it running counter to our nation's tradition.

    I'm not sure we can. I think this is a sort of social battle between post modern minded people and enlightenment minded people, and the people who don't even know what those are serving as the useful idiots. The post modernists won the ground they have now by becoming the teachers, especially in social studies academia. It's a long road to win that ground back. At least all the social justice nonsense is showing signs of turning off the moderate left and traditional liberals.

    So we will just let those two cancel each other out and call it even.
    The right don't want the kkk and the left don't want the black panthers or the Muslim brotherhood either right?

    Publicly, they don't want to acknowledge them.
    Privately, both sides are happy for these two extreme factions to vote.

    Well, you tend to ignore some stuff on your side. How can you complain about the other side ignoring stuff? How about going with the consistent position? Bad stuff is bad. Ignoring bad stuff is bad.

    You know what, I actually tend to believe that left lean hate groups, are closer to the standard liberal thinking, than the right hate groups are to standard right thinking.

    Slam on the breaks there hoss. Our nation was not founded on white supremacy. That may have been a feature, but not the basis.

    So, unlike the condition of this thread, Rep. Scalise's condition has been upgraded from "critical" to "serious."

    This is interesting. I'll have to think on that for awhile.

The "right" didn't riot. The left did. Remember Chicago? That wasn't Trump's fault. The right didn't smash windows in businesses and set stuff on fire, the left did.

    But. Something we need to be careful of, if you have a side, and you find yourself having to defend your side's use of violence by pointing out the violence on the other side, that's that's a sign you're just rationalizing. Why IS it okay for your side to be violent while you condemn the violence on the other? What I'm trying to do here is expose the extreme positions which accept what is actually unprovoked violence, by claiming that the other side provoked it. Protestors disrupting your candidate's rally is not a rational reason for Trump supporters to be violent with them. Attending a rally which promotes ideas different from yours is not a valid reason for anti-Trumpers to be violent.
    Im not saying it's right and I'm not condoning or excusing it regardless as to which side it's coming from. I'm just saying when the Leader of The Free World continues to be so divisive this does nothing but inflame the situation. He is after all the President of all of the United States.
