When Drudge posted this story yesterday, it was up with a few other stories about: a Wyoming Republican candidate's campaign office being set on fire; a Congressman claiming to have received death threats, and a couple of others I forget...the takeaway seemed to be the threat of violence is from the left/not the right.
That strains credibility a little if we consider which side has the guns, which side has the military veterans, which side belongs to irregular militias who conduct their own combat drills...whenever they hear black helicopters are flying around!
So, I'd say the antifa-type groups that declare they are willing and ready to meet force with force when dealing with Neonazis, Klansmen and three percenters etc., better make sure they're up to the challenge, if they're going to try to shut down nazi marches and demonstrations.
Drudge excels in straining credibility.

Yes, but like PJ Media, Breitbart and Worldnetdaily, he usually provides the best barometer of what most of the right is talking about...and of course getting worked up about. It doesn't have to be real....remember the "knockout game?" And it can be blown out of all proportions, BUT that doesn't mean there aren't a lot of older people out there in suburbia and in the sticks who all own guns and have got their triggers cocked waiting to shoot the enemy.
This guy who attacked the candidate may be a random crackpot, but the antifa and related black bloc anarchist groups that are agitating violence better be aware of what they might set in place. AND the leaders of movements on the left, need to reign in these types before innocent demonstrators are attacked, shot or maybe killed! If there is a time for a popular uprising to resist forcefully, it sure as hell isn't now, when most of the left are spending all their time tapping out replies on Twitter and Facebook, don't understand hardly any political theory or have much idea what their overall goals are, and most important: aren't meeting people outside of social media!
Last year, in reviewing the Russian Revolution of 1917, the course of events sure paint a far different picture of what the left movements (even at ground level) were like back then compared to now. A real left movement that wants to change or overthrow the system has a lot of work to do and likely should tell their people to get off the computer and cellphones and start talking to people and reading books again!

You know, just like all conservatives are just like these guys, every single one.

Here you go stereotyping conservatives again. Your pic shows radical cons carrying lit and unlit torches when they should be carrying unlit brooms symbolizing, Clean Sweep.

Oh yeah, and the pic?

None of the nazis, er, I mean "socialists" in the photo will be attending Bernie Sanders rallies, for sure. Righties and DJ own that one. Forever. Sorry. Just like the socialists in this one.



Lastly, "How did vox just so happen to be there to get your favorite photo."

Attacking the source, eh?

Maybe. I thought it when it first happened. It was a little to convenient for my taste.

What else could the attacker be but a random crackpot?

I agree with you about the real use of PJ, Breitbart, et al.

Huffenpuff.

You are one of DTT's primary proponents of the libs are violent meme.

Spencer? The rightists own him.

As for drift, this thread was nailed for what it is. Your defense of this thread was a not very good attempt.

Yup. I posted this story also, earlier.

The fact that the legacy media and those of you who eat it all up dont give a shit about it just feeds the "the media is leftist"

Where is the photo of the sanders guy who shot up the baseball game. If that was a trump supporter who shot up a bunch of leftists playing cricket or whatever they do ;-) we would still be hearing about it whenever it is convenient (like the above staged photo)

Or better yet if this were a trump supporter who attacked a leftist running for office the legacy media would be ablaze. Now just think if that candidate were part of one of the many, many of one or more of the leftists protected classes. Now, that would be great news, right?

Legacy media.

Those who don't give a shit.

The sanders [sic] guy.

Staged photo.

If this were.

Protected classes.

You don't deal with reality. You live in a world of hypotheticals which can be molded to fit any situation.

Back on topic, clicker started this thread to flame. Period.
