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.
