you often blame the right and the republican party because of KKK. But the amount of violence contributed by the below mentioned groups are far more than the KKK.

The KKK was most violent in the Democratic south. That is their heritage.

So the best comparison you can find is to a group that was active for 2 years and killed 2 people?

That's an example of a fundamentalist conservative group. Are there any left with groups equivalent

Ummmm. The KKK

I'm glad we agree. this train of thought, although useful as a lesson of history, is an utterly pointless red herring, and a weak excuse, in the discussion of violence being committed by a separate group in the present.

well I'm guessing he means not guilty if doing any wrongs.""what group of people would you consider to be innocent?"none.no and no.

what does that even mean? what group of people would you consider to be innocent? if the left has violence in the past does that mean it can't criticize violence going in now? does it excuse that violence?

sorry to be blunt, but this is stupid.

that's not what the debate is about though. it is about the innocence of the group.

and if you feel like talking about skeletons, name a single left group in history that can match the violence and hate of some of the many right wing hate groups like the KKK.

whether we talk about the past or the present, it's not even a competition.

the left is not a group, it's an entire half of a political spectrum.... and no point of that spectrum has been violent in decades. the same cannot be said for the right. between attacks on minority churches, abortion clinics, Islamic temples, and even a threat to overthrow a democratic government through violence.

I'm sorry but the 2 are not comparable.

2 years, 9 months ago

that still makes the group have a skeleton in the closet. only diff. is I never hear of us taking that skeleton out until now but I hear all the time democratic parties doing it

armed doesn't mean guilty. we're saying much of the right is militant and willing to use at the least the threat of violence when they don't get their way.

the left has a history of violence, but mostly against empty structures, and nearly half a century ago. Right wing violence is here and now, pretty prominent, and often based on fake news and conspiracy theories regarding the fear of immigrants and the government.
