That's a singular idiot with no organization to speak of. NOT what I've been referencing. Video was edited. What happened before the altercation? I wouldn't doubt that guy was standing next to people displaying the Confederate flag or the Nazi symbol and cheering in unison just prior to that. I'm not saying the masked person is right. What I am saying is that people on the right are advocating division and violence in an organized fashion and are willing to essentially overthrow our governmental politicians fairly chosen by the people(not that Q-Anon nut, Marjorie Taylor Greene, though), while people on the left are "associated" with protests and broken windows after documentable oppression and murders. Nice singular "whataboutism". Still waiting for real organizations embraced by Democrats f*cking with other politicians for doing their job to be brought up...I could post a picture of Emmitt Till if we'd like to continue the whataboutism game.

Sure... I can see that....
It's getting pretty bad out there though regardless of the spin...

I just saw this altercation ....

Your post was honestly very funny and lighthearted. Unfortunately, this is not... and it's not "antifa".

...and to reiterate: GOP directly asking if their "followers" are ready to die to overturn the election for Trump. This isn't one person in a mask. Definitely not extreme fringe stuff.

I could go on. Please do not counter with a singular bad seed. I really want someone to offer up an analogous situation on the left. Yes, it is getting pretty bad out there and things like this perpetuated from the right, all the way up to the top, is why.

Hopefully someone will be able to help you with that. I'm not sure I understand why the exercise is important though.
Pretty simple.  If you play the "both sides do it" game, then maybe you should have some evidence to back it up.  Sometimes both sides aren't doing it, or there's a significant difference in the number or degree of offenses between the two sides.   When someone provides evidence contradicting your argument, " I'm not sure I understand why the exercise is important though" is a pretty weak response. 

I apologize if this sounds pedantic or condescending, but I'm taking you at your word when you say you're not sure you understand.

Republicans, not only do you silently stand with the idiots who condone violence as a political end resolve over and over and over and over... but I guess you stand with the Iranians, also. Stand tall. It would appear that DemocRATs(I did that for all the right-wingers out there)do not as easily succumb to a good old-fashioned conspiracy theory.

In the wake of their failure to lick Trump's boots enough, Fox is purging employees with even a sliver of journalistic integrity and throwing itself into becoming a full-time, full-throated propaganda network.  Lessons learned, I suppose.

Just watching the inauguration live. President is sworn in and speaking. Seems pretty much trouble free so far.

Nah... It’s all about the Benjamins and projecting status for feeding ego. There’s plenty willing to go any length for it. This is why I’ve never been successful in business. My fault. I simply don’t have it in me to look at myself in the mirror if I ever did most of what is excepted in business. Some people have no shame.

That is rich suggesting that the right is the side advocating violence, while there are fringe elements on both sides that are extreme.

We all have a stake in election integrity.

JR

The Proud Boys and Q-Anon have all been embraced by the president(not extreme fringe element:opposite of, actually). We The People have reached out in a full page ad in The Washington Times to implore Trump to declare martial law(which death is the penalty for breaking) to "take back" the election. I could go on and on... Boogaloo Boys, The 3 Percenters, Patriot Front, etc. Please cite other fringe extreme groups embraced by Democratic governmental leaders. Keep in mind Antifa is an idea, not an organization. There is a huge difference between election integrity and conspiracy theories pushed by a misinformation campaign designed to sow mistrust and division. Once again, please provide evidence of fraud. Trump's lawyers cannot. Republicans have severely harmed the perception of "election integrity"... all because they are poor loser snowflakes who are crying because they didn't get their "gold star". 2016, Trump lost the popular vote by 3.5 million and still became president. No one questioned the integrity of our voting system. 2020, Trump has lost by almost 7 million votes and lost the electoral college by exactly as much as he won by in 2016 in a self-declared "landslide" election. Trump held a "victory rally" last night in Georgia. The world has lost its mind.
