Trying to downplay just how extreme they are? And the views of antifa aren't as extreme as you seem to think in the sense that there ARE a lot of mainstream leftists who might not be actively getting violent, but they definitely have the same ideas. I had someone I thought was a fairly moderate left winger call me a Nazi on Facebook and THEN go on a tirade the other day just because I said I thought it was wrong for people to form a mob and tear down a confederate statue, that it should be done legally through a vote by the local populace who are paying taxes on said monuments. And I thought "We shouldn't mob, we can vote" was a fairly middle of the road opinion, politically.

If you are near a major city then it's a good bet they are already there. I see them all the time here if I ever have to go downtown. Don't have your hair short btw else you will be labeled as a nazi. This 4real happened to me a week ago when I was at the alamo.

I'm about to start dressing in black just so I can grey man around these wackos.

I'd rather keep my short hair and be labeled a nazi than grow it out and be labeled a ***** *****.

I'm actually amazed that nobody so far has taken a gun and shot a bunch of them. I'm not saying that's the solution, but you'd think someone would eventually snap and go crazy on their asses. Or have they simply been avoiding places where that is likely to happen? I thought americans all had guns and liked shooting people...

We do but a vast majority of us are responsible gun owners despite what the screaming clays try and claim.

There was that man that was shot outside the Milo Yiannopoulos speech at University of Washington back in January. Not a bunch though, no.

Yeah... movies will also tell you that EVERYTHING explodes at the slightest provocation, that getting shot pretty much anywhere but the head or heart isn't a big deal and won't actually kill you in minutes, that you have to be read your rights on arrest or they have to let you go or something, that a 'silencer' actually silences a gun, that people moving from the city to the country pretty much always buy a gigantic old house that needs fixing up (I find that one really weird, and it's everywhere), that you'll actually explode if exposed to vacuum, that working people who neglect their families do it because they they have to finish the next big project or presentation that they must invest all their time into when reality is more like a lot of little projects, deadlines, and mostly useless meetings that just grind you down over time, and a plethora of other stupid, insane, ridiculous, or just completely and obviously wrong tropes they repeat over an over again. I wouldn't get my information about the world from movies, if I were you. :lol:
