    Follow ALL the news not some of it, you're looking at one side without thinking about what the other side is about. Antifa are left wing extremists waving that Palestinian flag throwing bricks and bottles at anything determined as right wing. If you can't see that you've fell for student politics.

    I didn't say that I called them BOTH lunatics because both are radicals. Black supremacists are as bad as white supremacists and their marxist masters are pulling their strings. In a free and democratic country that has free speech it shouldn't be a right to brick the protesters.

    Pigs in blankets anyone?

    To most on here you can only be extremist if you are right wing, left wing extremism is a bit like the loch ness monster and father christmas. You are also racist if you voted out.

    Who the FUCK said it was okay to brick protestors? You are on record as calling those who oppose white supremacy "lunatics." That's what YOU said. You didn't distinguish among race, creed, political spectrum or anything else. You made a massive generalization to make a point, got called out on it because it was fucking moronic, and now are trying to pretend you didn't say what you said. You have NO FUCKING CLUE what the make-up of the anti-protestors in Charlottesville were -- NONE. You select some element of them to prove a point. But that's NOT the case with those forming the right-side protest, organized and spearheaded by an AVOWED white supremacist. Instead telling me to "get the news" from "all sides", why don't you actually read the news -- ANY news?

    And it pisses me off that you think I don't understand both sides. I'm intimately familiar with the frustrations of the disenfranchised working class white people. I'm involved in the agriculture and construction businesses among other things. I assure you the ranch hands and managers I know in northeastern California -- where there's been serious advocacy for secession from the state for decades -- are furious about their travails, way of life and even moral/ethical structure being ignored if not ridiculed by the left. Whether its globalism, gay marriage, immigration, gun control or excessive regulation and tax, they have a right to be upset about the new "standard" coda for what it means to be "American."

    My problem is HOW that frustration has been expressed, whether voting for a completely unsuitable cheat and liar, or voting to secede from the state, that frustration has been expressed irresponsibly at the ballot box, or in a gathered protest like today's. When you act for change it is your RESPONSIBILITY as an adult to understand to the best of your abilities the consequences of your actions. That goes for Brexit too by the way.

    The left was wrong about the polls, wrong at the ballot box, and wrong to look down their collective noses at who they considered bumpkins. What they haven't been wrong about is the consequences of the election. Trump has behaved exactly as anyone who spent any time understanding the man before voting would expect. And so have the hard edge of his "supporters".

    Right wing extremists have destroyed the Republican party (read: Tea Party), and left wing extremists have greatly disabled the Democratic party. The right person to be the President in the US IMO is a pragmatic, rhetorically-unifying centrist with a slight libertarian bent. I don't give a crap which party he or she comes from. At all.

    The left are finally getting a taste of their own medicine and getting a good kick in and the liberal media don't like it one little bit, just watching CNN and it's hilarious, they are crapping it
    This has only just started, the wild men in the mountains have yet to come into play
