Not Just the Alt-Right: Leftist Violence was on Display in Charlottesville

The moment a violent white supremacist chose to use his car as a battering ram on a crowd of protesters was the moment that the leftwing fear mongers were handed a free pass for their hateful, and violent rhetoric and beliefs.

Up until that moment everyone who opposes the liberal fascism of the anti-free speech, anti-free assembly, anti-free association leftists like Antifa, the Occupy Movement, and Black Lives Matter could remind the world just how violent and destructive the leftists have been.

Now, when we remind them of their hateful rhetoric and their violent (and destructive) actions, they shout at us about “false moral equivalencies,” and the fact that the leftists have yet to kill anyone.

But let’s be honest, the only reason the leftists haven’t killed anyone yet is because their targets have been very lucky. Have you seen the videos from California, Oregon, Washington, Chicago, Baltimore, New York City and elsewhere? Particularly on college campuses, the targets of the leftist hate often find their escape just before that dangerous moment when everything could change.

In the aftermath of the chaos in Charlottesville we’re beginning to learn that the leftists there were just as violent as they usually are. The only reason we’re not hearing more about their criminal activity in Virginia is because an evil psychopath drove his car into a crowd of protesters.

From the Daily Wire:

Video from Saturday’s “Unite The Right” demonstration in Charlottesville shows what appears to be the initiation of violence by counter-demonstrators — presumably “AntiFa,” “Black Lives Matter,” and assorted neo-Marxist and Democrat-aligned agitation groups. 

“Unite the Right” demonstrators — presumably white racial nationalists and assorted “alt-right” persons — are seen displaying Confederate flags.

The New York Times’ Sheryl Gay Stolberg also noticed the hate-filled leftists who seemed to be everywhere:

Stolberg was eventually forced to qualify her observations and apologize for making it sound like the leftists were as bad as the racists.

In fact, on Twitter, angry leftists assailed Stolberg with angry commentary and argued that the leftists were right to be violent because the racists beliefs were deplorable. Yes, the leftists argued that they should be violent because their opponents deserve the violence.

On Monday, Charlottesville’s police chief confirmed that the white nationalists/white supremacists weren’t the only bad guys causing problems over the weekend.

Other groups also began amassing along the street and in the park. Gradually, the crowd sizes increased along with aggressiveness and hostility of attendees toward one another. Shortly before 11 a.m., individuals in the crowd began throwing objects and spraying chemical agents into the crowd. The city and county then made a declaration of “local emergency.” The crowd size became increasingly violent, with mutually engaged combatants, with one-on-one attacks following.

When a reporter asked the police chief if one group was more at fault than an other, the chief responded that this was “an alt-right rally.” The journalist pressed, asking if the alt-right had instigated the fighting? To this the police chief responded, “We did have mutually combating individuals in the crowd.” That’s the polite way of saying, the alt-right may not have been the instigators.

Look the alt-right is gross. The white nationalists are disgusting. The white supremacists are deplorable. They should all be shamed, denounced, and condemned.

But we should remember that Antifa and other leftist anti-liberty groups are similarly disgusting and YES they are similarly deplorable. Why? They may not hate based on the color of skin, but they do hate and they are fighting for a world where the majority is enslaved to their despotic will.

Denounce the alt-right, but don’t forget to denounce the anti-freedom left as well.
