    Any details? Was this the event in Portland where Andy Ngo was attacked?

    Yup, there's ZERO justification for antifa violence. I think that the Bible teaches us to resist not evil and to turn the other cheek. So when the Neo-Nazi groups on the Right spawn killers like James Fields, Jr who murdered the woman in Charlottesville do their thing the Left must ALWAYS be the higher moral authority and step away.

    I think that a lot of folks on the Left really are scared that violent hate groups (like the Neo Nazis who often march and espouse openly a philosophy of pure hatred and who admire murderers and genocidal madmen) will one day actually attempt to recreate history and take their hatred further. Think about how many "thought experiments" we run "If you could travel back in time to see Hitler before he became Fuhrer....", well I think a lot of people are wondering if, in about 50 to 60 years we will look back on the Neo-nazi marchers and the rise of violent nationalism as something people of the time SHOULD have stood up against. But that would be jumping the gun in a manner of speaking. The violent Right has yet to do more than just a couple of killings (assuming we are no longer counting things like Oklahoma City back in the 90's). Usually homegrown terrorist organizations are, historically, Right Wing, but it would be wrong to pre-emptively attack them or do them physical harm until they've actually decreed their overall intent as murder (as opposed to just occasional ones driving into crowds).

    Yes the Andy Ngo incident was very disturbing. HERE Warning the video of the assault is not fun to watch. I'm sure most people on either side would not approve.

    Yup, that's pretty messed up. I hope the police track down the assailants.

    Why would they? They were issued stand down orders.

    I just saw pictures of Andy Ngo. That's not acceptable.

    Once the lawsuits take place, I have a feeling they will tone it way down.

    What lawsuits? Who are they going to sue? Antifa? The Proud Boys? Good luck with that.

    Not true. Nazis hate Jews but conservatives dont.
