Please watch the attached video and then react to ... have "anti-fascist" leftists gone too far? Please explain your view.
Not surprised. Remember when those two black girls shouted down BERNIE SANDERS because he wasn't leftist enough? The democrats are all about silencing their opponents through force.
I think that when I cannot see any difference between the Left and Fascists, as I feel at this point except for concentration camps; I believe the Left fears becoming irrelevant, and thus has gone too far.
Thanks for the link think-Seems we got a LOT of anger going on😡
Freedom of speech means you support the right of people to say exactly those ideas which you do not agree with.
Louder ... were both groups in the video supporting the rights of the other to express their opinions or was one group attempting to shut down the other?
Think, I'm simply making a comment on how I feel about free speech. Don't be defensive. I'd feel the same way if it was flip flopped. No really, just because it's your way doesn't mean it's the right way.
Louder ... you misinterpret my comments. I'm not defensive at all. I'm simply trying to get past the superficial level and get to the heart of it.
I see the left -- which supposedly loves free speech -- actually bullying someone who is nonviolently making their position clear.
I find the hypocrisy of the left damaging to our society. I would likewise protest if the right were doing it. The right is accused of doing this, but they aren't.
I completely agree with you, Go figure🤔it is what it is now.
The guy was holding a sign and the anti-fascist fascists bullied him into leaving. No free speech for him!
This user is currently being ignored
Did you watch the tape? There's absolutely nothing that is anti-fascist about the leftists in the video. They are precisely what they say they hate!
UP ... is this an example where leftists went too far?
Fascism is by definition nationalistic and authoritatian. Fighting off a mugger doesnt make you a mugger
Mystic ... what about a person who squashes free speech makes them an advocate for it?
Raging, is someone wanting to protect free speech the opposite of a fascist?
Mystic ... it's cute how you attempt to confine fascism to avoid the authoritarian left's inclusion.
Fascism is authoritarian. When you steal someone's sign -- someone who is standing quietly, disrupting nothing, and shout them down -- you then become the fascist -- nationalistic in your quest or not!
And what of trump kicking anyone out of his rallies that disagreed with him, disruptive or not? Is he a fascist?
And yeah, I tend to "confine" things by the definition of the word
Mystic ... if someone is disruptive in the theater, preventing you from watching the move, do you want them removed?
What did the man in the video do that made him a fascist worthy of being silenced by the mislabeled "anti-fascists"?
Mystic ... are you really suggesting that a non-nationalist is immune from being fascist?
UP ... is it possible for a leftist -- non-naturalist -- to be fascist?
It's pretty sad how UP and Raging come in here spouting their bullshit opinion when they clearly haven't watched the video.
"The right to openly discuss ideas must be defended"
Mystic, did you remove your "Anti-fa" banner because you didn't want to be viewed as a Fascist?
Fascists need to be bashed
Did you watch the video?
The guy holding the sign was not a fascist
Elf ... absolutely agree. Yet those who espouse themselves as "anti-fascist" are using force to squash this man's free speech!
Again, I ask ... what is fascist about the man in the video?
