    The liberal left use their usually doubt standard towards political violence. That is to say the "see no evil, hear no evil" standard to their preferred groups and "look at them under a microscope to their" non-preferred groups.

    Of course there is violence from people on the right. It's actually quite small in number. In contrast the violence from the left is massive. We have televised example of thousands of leftist protesters smashing their way into campus properties on camera.

    Alex Jones, Kelly Ann Conway and a number of other right wing political commentators asked the New York Times and various other publications to disavow political violence. They asked Megan Kelly the same thing and the response was to laugh at the suggestion.

    The ADL, which has now basically become like the SPLC - Southern Poverty Law Centre, is creating lists of conservatives and publishing them for hate. The ADL actually published these Conservative people's addresses on their hate lists, presumably so that some unhinged person can take action against them.

    It's interesting because they were created to stop the kind of governments that put people on lists.

    I think the left are political violence from the left as a necessary systematic agitation.

    The left is built on political violence.

    Leftist violence in Germany was one of the main reasons that brought Hitler to power.

    Yes it applies here, it's the global Internationalist left. They strike here as well like in the miners strike, the poll tax riots, antifa, UAF etc

    Don't you see contradiction in saying miners are the liberal left whilst they are mainly part of the UKIP counterculture of which you speak?

    Nope, try again.

    Oh no! Those poor windows!

    On a more serious note, nope, not violence. Violence is something committed against people (and, I guess, animals too), not inanimate objects. Property damage (unless the property in question is a pet or other animal) is not violence.

    Most pro-Palestine activists would be either confused or amused at the idea that the ADL is "the left", for the record.

    No, it didn't. Assuming you mean this list, there are no addresses on it at all. On some of the descriptions (not all or even most), it mentioned the city they are based in. That's not remotely an address, and for many of them not even private information - that Richard Spencer lives in Alexandria, Virginia, for example, could have been found out from his Wikipedia page.

    > cites Infowars as a source. Yeah, that speaks for itself.
