One look at how the alt left movement is acting and what they are saying the argument that they are not equivalent to those of the alt right is questionable.
For example; Missouri Senator: ‘I Hope Trump Is Assassinated!’
A Missouri state senator said in a now-deleted Facebook post that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.
The tragic events in Charlottesville were a microcosm of a bigger problem.
For the last two years, the media and the anti-Trump masses have mostly remained silent on the political violence coming from the [Neocon] “left”. In fact, it seems as if the institutionalized media has condoned and celebrated the violence and repeatedly have dubbed them“peaceful demonstrations”.
Contrast this with the political and media efforts to paint a different picture of the alt-right;
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has been making a lot of claims about the white supremacist protesters that descended upon Charlottesville last weekend, mainly about how the police handled the violent situation.
In an interview with prominent Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, McAuliffe claimed that the Virginia State Police were outgunned by the white supremacists and neo-Nazis. As a result, the police were hesitant to break up their violent conflict with counter-protesters and Antifa.
McAuliffe told Mckesson that the protesters had weapons cacheshidden around the city:
“They had battering rams and, you know, we had picked up different weapons they had stashed around the city. This was a powder keg. This was a very volatile situation. And I'll once again say, I am very proud of our team on the ground. Nobody hurt except for those people hit by the car and you couldn't stop that.”
That sounds perfectly logical, except for the fact the police have refuted the governor's claims numerous times since then.
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg made the mistake of admitting that along with the abhorrent, violent, white supremacists who terrorized Charlottesville over the weekend, many Antifa protesters were also enacting "hate-filled" violence, as they've done in several other cities in recent months. For noting that the "hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right" — citing "club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the park" — Stolberg was hammered online, even after repenting and issuing a correction that depicted the violent left in more heroic terms.
"A few wrap-it-up thoughts from Charlottesville: 1. Striking how many of the white nationalists were young people, almost entirely men," she wrote in a series of tweets Sunday. "2. The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the park[.] 3. Among my unanswered questions: police response. Why did things get out of hand so quickly? Could violence have been prevented?"
