ABC Special (on now) "proving" false equivalency

between the right and left. At this point, ten minutes in, the focus has been more on showing violence by the alt-left rather than the right. Just like Hillary's emails were equivalent to tRump's history of racism, sexism, collusion with Russia, etc. To be very clear, I do not condone ANY violence by either side but to make it seem like it is done equally by both sides is ridiculous.

And violence by the so-called Alt-Left really pisses me off as it takes the focus off of the scum on the right. They just showed the Alt-Lefties smashing windows and torching cars in DC during the inauguration and that got a lot of media that day, "proving" the false equivalency that both sides are as guilty as the other.

Hope this changes as the show goes on.

1. Alt-left is a term concocted by rightists to create a false equivalence for their racist, white...

supremacist alt-right.

Got that?

No one on the left calls themselves the alt-left.

Those were anarchist in DC, not any alt-left, not even Antifa, who consider consider themselves a force that confronts the white supremacist alt-right. They do not try to tear down society as the anarchist do.

CORNEL WEST said the antifascists saved our lives in Charlottesville, actually. We would have been completely crushed, and Iíll never forget that. Meaning what? Meaning that you had the police holding back, on the one hand, so we couldnít even get arrested. We were there to get arrested. We couldnít get arrested, because the police had pulled back, and just allowing fellow citizens to go at each other, you see, and with all of the consequences that would follow therefrom.
