    I'm not going to broad-brush "the right" on this, but to some posters here, apparently you are correct.

    Unfortunately, I've heard similar sentiments from some Antifa people; I've read excuses for violence from Antifa members who consider supporting racist, bigoted, or hateful ideas a form of violence, and therefore feel justified in using physical violence against those people.

    Too many people, regardless of ideology, seem to consider physical violence a perfectly reasonable way to enforce their own opinion.

    Of course, even if the crowd were Antifa and had been violent, they weren't being violent toward the driver when he drove at them.

    A charge means they're going to go to trial or plea bargain with him. Only a moron like you thinks it means he's definitely guilty. Even your DA knows there's more to the process, and even then there can be a mistake even if he's convicted.
    No, I'm saying there's reasonable doubt, from the information available, as to his guilt.

    Yes. His intent was to hurt peacefully protesting people because he was plowing into the crowd fleeing for their lives before the flag could have made contact with his 2 Ton weapon.

    Yet you persist denying reality.

    Really? How talk to them? Offer them roses or steak and eggs?
    If you don't mind. Answer that question. How?

    These hate groups are born and bred for violence. We cannot allow these hate groups to spread hatred, bigotry, racism and intimidations. Wanting to eliminate Jews, blacks me other minorities here in America.
    Are you saying we just let them go easy and ignore them? Answer this second question.

    Are physical violence or ignoring them the only options?

    Cry me river. Like wanting to kill all Jews? The antifa and BLM was created and existed only to counter violent hate groups that you are protecting.
    Are we supposed to let those hate groups kill Jewish and other minorities?

    He is not charged with first degree murder. It is second degree. Not planned. It is intent.

    There are no examples of people accidentally stepping on the gas for two blocks.

    His constant speed too fast for conditions of pedestrians present, is not accidentally stepping on the gas instead of hitting the brake. When drivers do that they keep pressing on the gas as if it were the brake harder and they accelerate until they crash into something.

    This guy's lawyers are not going down that path because only a fool would think of that.

    If this was a pure accident somehow, why does your Nazi need to keep his mouth shut.

    Of course not. I've never advocated allowing any group to kill other people.

    Apparently you are an authoritarian who does not believe in the constitutional protections of the first amendment. That amendment is not about protecting only the speech that you like. If someone hates minorities, they have every right to hate minorities. They can spout their hate any time they want to. The rest of us are also free to call them idiots, to point out that their opinion is based on fear and ignorance, and to laugh at and shun those same people.

    You appear to want to use the government as thought police, to throw away our freedom of speech and right to assembly. If a group is actually being violent, or making direct threats, they are breaking the law. If they are, instead, simply promoting an unpopular opinion, then I absolutely believe in protecting that right.
