    Who said it did? That's just a poor attempt at deflection from the real issue here which is people claiming they're against intolerance and hate, and then attacking people and setting things on fire, all while chanting 'Love Trumps Hate' :rolleyes:

    How is Milo a white supremicist, or neo-Nazi?
    He is a white supremacist in the eyes of people who rioted last night because if antifa admitted he isn't then they would have to look in at themselves and admit they have become what they claim to oppose fascists

    Because extreme right wingers are so accepting and loving. Maybe both are just as bad as each other
    I'm not claiming they are loving and accepting ... but they're not the ones who are currently setting fire to a university, and beating people to a pulp for holding "wrong" opinions.

    Indeed, take Richard Spencer for example, the guy who invented the term 'alt-right', someone who is actually a white nationalist who holds white nationalist views. Sure, I find his ideology repulsive, but the thing is, as unpleasant as his views may be, I don't see him, or people like him going round assaulting people, rioting, setting fire to things, smashing windows, or even actively inciting violence in support of their political aims, the violence does indeed seem to be coming mostly from the far left, rather than the far right these days.

    It's only a minority of extremists of course, but as someone who considers himself liberal and on the left (well kind of anyway), I find it deeply troubling how more moderate liberals and progressives have reacted to this, disregarding the right to free speech because it's someone they disagree with, and the 'it's okay to punch someone if they're a nazi' meme is still going strong since Trump's inauguration, even though in the vast majority of cases (like this one), the 'nazi' in question isn't a nazi at all.

    All while those on the right are laughing their heads off at the collective madness and chaos on the left since Trump's election victory.

    A lot of the reason I feel for Trump getting elected was the intolerant left. Now they respond to this by being more intolerant (and now aggressive).

    Its very lucky that hasn't happened. If it did, the protesters would fire back. Even now, the protesters are seriously injuring people.

    Looks like I was wrong, one of the protesters did get shot.

    Say what you like about the guy, but he's right, even the largest mainstream media outlets like CNN reported it in a way suggesting that he deserved and incited the violence and deserved to be shut down because of his political views and what he says, it's insanity, and yet so many on the left seem reluctant to admit that what happened was wrong and disgraceful.

    He is indeed right.

    The police were ****ing useless, if they were black protesters they would have been charged down and arrested.

    They aren't attacking "white supremacists" or even white nationalists. They are attacking ordinairy conservatives who wear MAGA hats and disagree with the excesses of PC culture.

      "Rabid"? She's emotional, sure, but her message is correct. Why do the police always protect neo-Nazis?

      They are protecting average Trump supporters. Gavin McInnes, Milo types are not "nazis" or even white nationalists. They are pro-free speech types who dislike Islam and radical feminism. Their opinions are not different to your average American conservative.

      I don't know what you people are trying to achieve, you've effectively declared war on half the American population. People with guns who would like nothing more than any excuse to shoot "commies". Eventually antifa will be declared a terrorist orginisation and will be subject to extreme state suppression.

      A few thousand middle class kids and old punks, transweirdos, AIDS patients, pedophiles and the rest of the rank and file of the extreme left VS 80% of the military and police? How do you think this will turn out?

      A lot of these people think it's morally correct to murder anyone that doesn't agree with their Anarcho-Socialist opinions.

      Yeah good luck with that. This is just like the communists during the Wiemar except they have far less suppor especially where it matters. Look how that turned out for them and their co-ethnics?

      Police are protecting the Constitution and, in particular, the first amendment.

      She's a narcissistic shrew.

      Hate speech is not free speech.

      The agenda "I believe I have the right to be an offensive *******" is not one we should tolerate. There are a lot of things that are prohibited in the name of either protecting individuals from themselves and/or others from them, and I see no difference here.

      I wonder if the same people who idolize Milo also would support the right to free speech of radical Islamic preachers.

      Personally, I am against both of them.

      But that is exactly true.

      His entire method is to aggravate people...
