Ironically, we ask the same question of all you alt-right extremists so unhappy to live in a country known for it's tolerance and inclusion. What the hell is stopping you from moving to a country where people are inspired to hate each other. Go.

Good Lord, even I could have done a better job photoshopping that picture :laugh:

When you're pushing "fake news" it is not about quality, but rather quantity. :smt045

yet when it comes to "hate" it is hard to see much difference between the alt right or the alt left. Seeing Antifa scumbags attacking cops it makes it hard to swallow that only one side of the ledger is consumed by "hate". There seems to be a lot of it going around on both sides.
Remember who is truly to blame for this insanely stupid trade war with Alberta - all of you people who voted for the NDP in the last election. Never let it happen again.

Intolerance of the intolerant is different than intolerance of innocent people.

To say they are two sides of the same coin is merely an attempt at intellectual gymnastics from someone who is incapable of sticking the landing.

Yes, in this day and age one expects people to have some understanding of the paradox of tolerance, either explicitly or implicitly:

I am no fan of antifa, but the false equivalence that the apologists for the alt-right like to use, and the disingenuous use of the term "alt-left" is pathetic in this day and age.

How does one even attempt to verify who is worse or more violent? It seems to be all based upon opinions and conjectures as to whether it's false equivalency or not. Bad ideas should be condemned, and violence/thuggery should be condemned. Legal peaceful protests are fine no matter how repugnant the ideas held by the protestors are. I would guess that 95% of the protests on both sides are peaceful, but they don't get media attention until they escalate into violence, which, if you want attention for your cause, means you have the temptation to cause violence just to get attention.
