    Why are you blaming everyone but the Nazis and White Supremacists?

    I think we all know the answer to that mr.Trash

    Why is it so difficult for you to admit the two groups should have been kept separate..?

    Actually that's clear, but what you describe as hate by the legitimate protesters is misguided. The vast majority of those who march are peaceful, and that includes the protests From MLK as Selma to those protests against the Vietnam War and the Bush invasion and occupation of Iraq. Every peaceful protest movement attracts both anarchists and agent provocateurs.

    How? Have you been schooled in crowd control?

    Consider this one theory:

    Deindividuation theory argues that in typical crowd situations, factors such as anonymity, group unity, and arousal can weaken personal controls (e.g. guilt, shame, self-evaluating behavior) by distancing people from their personal identities and reducing their concern for social evaluation.

    then not sure why we are arguing. i'm not talking the specifics of this incident but human nature in general. we tend to "feed the hate" whether it's fake news or not and that is a large part of the problem.

    you have may good reasons to hate trump. congrats. many do. but do you also find glee in "fake news" on him and FW around as "real" to any degree at all? do you find validation in these "stories" in how you feel about trump?

    for a long time i did about hillary. but when i started to see a good portion of what i read was "hate-news" i backed off. if i'm going to feel that strong about someone i want my reasons to do it to be real, not sorta-real to make *me* feel better about how i feel.

    Obstructing someone is a crime. blocking the street is a crime. Everything you listed is a crime.

    They didn't start the rioting, asshole. ANTIFA and BLM did.

    It interferes with their narrative that the left can do no wrong.
