Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 07, 2019

While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn't leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies. Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of "anti-fascism." In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement.

So this is a thing that can happen?
So this is a thing that one can make happen, like if you run 2,200 Facebook ads about the invasion emrgy.

Whataboutism in its most extreme form. Coming from Boaz, no surprise there.

When a tabloid like The Post says something "may be" something in their headline you can count on it being a load of BS.

He "thinks" patriotism and his immigrant bashing white nationalism are the same thing.

Antifa are a bunch of --------- who have maturity issues and resent that their lives are likely going to be spent behind a fry cooker.

...but they are not murderers. If you go back and review the history of left-wing violence-Antifa, black bloc, whatever; you need to go back pretty far (like the Weather Underground) to find leftists who were engaging in terrorism.

I'm no fan of Antifa, but I hardly view them as an organized threat in the same way that right-wing extremists and neo-nazis have shown themselves to be. I honestly think it's more of a hobby for Antifa, versus a lifestyle choice for the neo Nazis.
