Great, the Fake Poll industry weighs in.

Both sides were at fault, the Alt Left protestors were illegally assembled and successfully bullied the white nationalists losers which caused their nut to do a vile nutty thing....that's it in a nutshell.

Yes, the left was going to show up and stand against those that support racism, and that is what the right, for the most part, wanted. I get it, some people want the monuments to stay, in part I agree, but it is how you go about doing it that will decide how it all ends up, try saving them from the gutter and you will lose, do so from higher ground and your message will be heard.
Sadly, in my this entire issue has been contrived and blown way out of proportion, to me peoples emotions are being played and we as a People are being manipulated, and sadly the Sheep rarely know they are being directed.
"but I believe the right came there to instigate a fight"

As I read it there were 3 groups.

The PEACEFUL protestors who had a permit.

The bad right group representing White Supremacist and the KKK.

The left group who opposed what the protestors were protesting

This 3rd group came with helmets, clubs and sticks.

It is my understanding that is 3rd group ATTACKED the legal protestors FIRST.

So REALLY who "came to instigate a fight"?

Why the helmets, clubs, sticks etc. if they weren't LOOKING for trouble?

How about those of us who blame the alt-right and the anti-fa, but fully supports peaceful resistance to the evil of any supremacy ideas.

Especially the stupid ones who think they will get any benefit from the greedy bunch in the WH. The current admin doesn't care about them any more than Americans of color. All of our dollars are green and that's all they want

I don't think anyone got a pass and I agree that both sides were looking for a fight and they got it. The police said the same thing too. Both sides were violent. Over statues, ****ing statues!

The supremacists have targeted communities who would reject their message of hate. They are anti-democracy and anti-Christ. It is appropriate for American Patriots to respond to supremacist hatred. So the supremacists started the fight. They are the bullies. The supremacists will NEVER be the good guys in this.

The anti-fa responded to the supremacy aggression. It was wrong for anyone to stoop to the supremacy's level. The anti-fa will NEVER be the good guys.

The true heroes, the good guys, are those American Patriots who love our democracy and show up to peacefully resist the evil of supremacy. Anyone who supports all Americans will ALWAYS be the good guys.

In your title for the post you stated "accurate yeah right ?

Axios media - Left Bias

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigationhttps://mediabiasfactcheck.com/axios/

Silly LGR. Its not about statues. It is about defining civil society. It is about concepts. But I think you know this.
