Yes, I have seen something remotely similar to what we are seeing now before.

The people protesting now tend to be a younger and more volatile lot than the older TP folks. Doesn't make the latter any better than the former. The sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity are the same.

It is not a crime to be ignorant in this country.
Burning and vandalizing property is.
Quit being ignorant and learn the difference.

I guess all those older Union people who bashed Tea party activist were all young and violent?

Take a look at the past 50 years. The preponderance of violent activity at political events is done by those on the left.

IMHO it's due to the near religious fever they have for thier belief system.

Two things....

First, I do not condone and defend such behavior. People who burn and vandalize property deserve to go to jail and even if it is only a handful of protestors engaging in such behavior, it still dimishes their movement. Very counterproductive.

Lastly, you are applying the metric of behavior to distinguish a movement you agree with from one that you don't agree with. Erroneously, I might add. As I said, TP'ers tend to be older folks, so there is less volatile behavior from TP protesters, but let's not pretend that all TP protests and actions were peaceful...

And conservatives aren't equally as "feverish" about their belief system?

Which do you prefer:

Tea Party marching with the flag "you defended" or Antifa vandalism?

They don't riot. They don't vandalize and destroy other people's property. They don't pull people out of cars and beat them. They don't block roads and bridges. They don't lay their children down on train tracks. They don't poop on cop cars.

If you don't see it, you're either blind as a bat or willfully ignorant, probably an unhealthy combination of both.

As I stated the preponderance of violence in political protests over the past 50 years is coming form the left.

You have a point and I acknowledge it. Obviously, I don't condone violence or vandalism and I've said as much already.

That said, I would obviously prefer people protest peacefully. My criticism is against the reasons for the protests by the extremes, not the methodology.

He sees it. He just can't admit that the left is worse than the right.
Left= violence and anti free speech.

Please. You saw violence and vandalism and pepper spraying innocent people from the TP folks? It's sad you can't see the differences. Call them both ignorant if you want but don't pretend they are anywhere close to being the same. One side burns your flag while the other would risk life and limb for it.

I love how you and others here are putting words in my mouth to defend your own idiocy by saying the idiocy on the opposite side of your ideological war is worse because of XYZ.

I don't condone violence or vandalism and I stipulated that those on the left tend to be younger and more volatile. To you, that makes them worse and you have a point.

However, those on the right can be and have been violent and said violence tends to be more against people than property and more intimate and focused than violence on the left. The general attitudes are also similar. That's my point.

Let's take the criticism of what I said about the OP subject in particular...

You and a few others totally miss the point of what I said due to your own bias and hatred of the "other side".

Yes, Berkley is wrong for not allowing Coulter to speak when they let Farrakhan speak. Opposing points of view should never be silenced. You can't have a functioning republic without opposing point of view being given an equal voice. Not sure how what I said puts me "on the plantation" or makes me a "pseudointellectual" or "in denial about the left".

I don't have to pick a side. I don't have to attack the left or right or support the left or the right to make a point about either side. That's fallacious thinking.

There is a big difference. You're on one side, or the other. There's no third path.
