thanks, that does look like a charge. sure would like to see what happened in the five seconds prior to that, though.

But where was the man in the sundress?

SPLC names them a hate group? That takes the seriousness right out of the whole topic. SPLC couldn’t accurately identify a hate group if one of the members ran a truck through the front window of their office.

Yeah, but just because that's the source in that local news article doesn't mean they are not. The founder openly calls for violence.

The klan should do a rally in Portland. That's the only way you'd get their mayor to demand no face coverings. The klansmen would have to show their faces, but then if antifa wanted to "counter protest with their fists" they'd have to show their faces too.

No more than I would say Republicans are a hate group because of the actions of the Proud Boys. The Proud Boys and oddball Democrats that do that should all be condemned, yes.

How so? Violence is embedded in the Proud Boys from the start with its founder.

If calls for violence were in the Democrat Party Platform, then sure.

Do you consider Antifa a hate group?
