Following sent to letters at Florida Times-Union August 17, 2017:
Black Lives Matter and Antifa have a long history of disrupting, with violence, gatherings of anyone that opposes their ideology. They have rioted, set fires, broken store windows, assaulted police, and beaten citizens. They are known for their chant, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.”
They showed up at the Charlottesville demonstration equipped with baseball bats, combat helmets, mace spray, and bags of urine.
Did these groups intend to engage in a peaceful civil discussion with the White Supremacists/KKK? No, they intended to riot, set fires, break store windows, assault police, and beat citizens; which is what they always do; which is what they did. How on earth can anyone not see that these groups are partly to blame for the death and injuries in Charlottesville ?
President Trump made the simple statement that there is blame on both sides.
For stating an obvious truth, leftists, Democrats, the media, and anti-Trump Republicans have created a firestorm vilifying the president.
Leftists in Durham, NC destroyed a Confederate statue while police stood by doing nothing to stop them; literally afraid to confront the felons while they were in the act of committing a felony. The University of Florida announced they are refusing to allow a white nationalist to speak on campus; literally afraid of “potential risks.”
Speakers Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, Anne Coulter, Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald and many others have all been denied free speech by violence committed by BLM/Antifa.
The left and the media are getting exactly what they want; to silence anyone not adhering to their socialist/communist/racists agenda.
The media, the left, BLM, and Antifa are the real fascists.
