I’d say it depends on how you measure it. The right has more deaths, but acts of violence like assaults and rioting are far more prominent on the left. I’d say the average leftist is more violent than the average conservative.

When you talk about everyday violance from threats punching people being aggressive it is the left almost every day. If you talk about every once in a while big things then maybe the right but then again. We all have no proof apart from what the media wants to show and tell us.

Robert- but that violence is from the right! I could say the same about left wing fringe groups!

But the left wing has called for violence, when has the right?

Zimmy- why do you consider the alt-right the same as or part of the right?

Yes I'd agree.

How every the right hasn't blown up building or mass shootings.

I think your confusing calls to violence, with individuals committing crimes.

OKC bombing, Charlottesville, MAGABOMBER could have easily killed many. Malita threatened to kill US Federal officers on more than one occasion, don’t try to excuse these things.

You have listed out individuals whom aline with the right, not the right it self.

I am correct you are mistaken.

I'm not excusing the action taken.

They simply are not the same as a political official calling for violence.
This are individual or individual groups of people how have acted in violence.

Robert is not the poll question who is more violent the Right or the Left? I have given you examples where the Right has been absolutely more violent, OKC being the worst, and 2nd greatest terrorist act in US history. You may move your goal post as you wish, but the question is clearly a general one.

The alt right- should be chopped up to be part of the right.

The question I think that you would prefer is
Which party has more history of violent people?

I the right hasn't called for violence in a long while, have they had violent people? Sure. Does a Republican causing violence speak for the right? Nope.

But your answering an entirely different question. The right wingers n modern American history has been more violent, killed more people, and destroyed more buildings. Those are just the facts. Make a different poll question and we might have a different conversation.

Lone Wolf individuals acting by themselves on their own accord that just happened to be Republicans don't represent the Republican Party.

Remember the rioting, protesting and looting by Republicans after Obama was elected...?

Google articles from left wing websites with no videos on them. Nice job bro! 👌🏻 I looked at all of them btw. Now go find videos or something with concrete evidence. It's 12am here so have a nice night! ♥

It was all concrete. But I guess that you can't get bogged down by facts.

Well halves of the political spectrum don’t carry out action on their own, so instead let’s look at the historical usages of violence and material conditions to significant left and right wing political organizations.

So this essentially dpends on what political spectrum one operates on, if it’s the actual one it would evidently be the right as they have the greater access to the use of violence, the vast majority of sovereign states in the world are right wing, as are the most militarily advanced ones (this is not a smear of the right wing, if you were to swap the conditions the opposite would follow). Of course by the common usage here, the “left” comprises around 90% of the political spectrum, so by that notion it would surely be the left.

If you don’t count the klan which you shouldn’t, the left is... but they also have ties to the KKK as well...

The Democrats are still the party of the KKK. They just changed how they manage the black community. Now they tell them they can’t get ahead on their own (votes), provide welfare (financial control), and push abortion (genocide), all done legally.

Democrats don't use black people to farm cotton anymore, they use them to farm votes.

Don’t put words in my mouth. The Democrats do a great job of convincing the black community that whites are to blame for their problems. It’s easier to blame someone else for your woes than to take responsibility for yourself. They’re not stupid, but many take the easy route to victimhood.

Yet you really think they are stupid. Wow! 80% of African Americans voters lie to play victims and can’t think for themselves, wow! Just wow! 🙄🙄🙄
