(Portion removed) which is about the Marxist BLM organization (responsible for riots, looting, violence and death in our country, and who cares very little about Black Lives as demonstrated by their behavior) in order to stir negative emotions (deflect) onto someone else. Hmmmm, disingenuous. I fear that Pleasanton is next. BLM is already applying pressure to Biden, the candidate they hope will win the election, to prepare for changes they want to implement. And now the Democratic Socialist Party wants to talk about unit in this country.

Grant knew exactly what he was doing, and just saying "Violence is not what he intended" is BS. When you ask people to show up and "get ready for a good time wearing armor" essentially, you are asking for trouble. Just because Trump can bully people and get away with it, doesn't mean you can Grant, you're not the President. In fact you should be charged attempting to incite a riot! Bullies and pressure from bullies should not be tolerated. Look what has happened with Trump!! Tolerating his bad behavior has just opened the gate to others that want to do the same...

It's just unbelievable that these gun-toting rednecks keep stirring up hate, fear and violence against minority groups, and using terms which have little or no meaning (i.e. Antifa is "Anti-Fascist"-- it is not an organized group). Time and time again, the trouble makers have been shown to be racists who are trying to give legal and peaceful demonstrators a bad name. Who was it who said "love is love is love." The orange man has given legitimacy to these once-quiet internal voices of those who are so insecure in their masculinity that they need to wear their guns in public, drive macho trucks and wave flags that demonstrate their hate and worship of a man who is unworthy of being a US citizen never mind being president and "leader of the free world." He can't be removed fast enough.

Trump’s a bully? Nothing supports that. Redneck’s? Boy that’s a reach and racist. Antifa is anti-fascist, and not an organized group? I see why we have problems with half the country. (Removed)

Whoever posted the original article online for a BLM gathering this week seems to carry equal responsibility in a "Another fine mess." Web Link

Uh, antifa is a terrorist group, while not organized, these individuals do no good in society. (Removed)

Peaceful BLM supporters are fine, I don’t agree with everything, but they have a right to openly discuss their issues and cause free from violence. But that right also comes with the rights of others to voice their opinion.

Civil discourse is ok.

Pleasanton Parent - (removed because it referred to something that was removed)

You may want to look up the definition of terrorism then look in a mirror.

This website is quickly being overrun by far right extremists spewing hate and calling for violence. It is really quite sad that our society has fallen so far.

Support for domestic terrorism is a real and growing problem with the radical right and sweeping it under the rug is tantamount to supporting it.

Juan, we agree.

Difference is I’ll call both antifa and (insert white supremacy group here) out, you’re biased to one.

Left radicals have spewed more hate and shown more intolerance in aggregate than the conservative collective.

I'm closing this thread. When people are angry that I removed a line that called for violence, then more people are angry because I removed a line that referred to the line I removed, that's enough.
