Google Working With Liberal Groups To Target Conservative Websites

In the United States there is a  principle of “innocent until proven guilty” and any attempt to assign guilt outside of the legal system is little more than digital vigilantism.

Google, ProPublica and liberals groups to build a national hate crime database.  ProPublica is funded by liberals and George Soros.

One of the groups helping to build a national hate crime database is The Southern Poverty Law Center.  SPLC put Dr. Ben Carson on its  “extremist” list.  That list includes  Brigitte Gabriel,  Pamela Geller, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer (jihad watch).

Under the guise of rooting out “hate,” the search engine company is launching “a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting,” Google said in a blogpost.

Not surprisingly, Google has partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center with the goal of making data about “hate events” more accessible to journalists. Other “news” sites deemed worthy of judging content across the internet include BuzzfeedThe RootThe New York Times, Univision, Meedan (whatever that is), and, of course, the The Advocate (which today features “100 Photos of Beautiful Men in the P-Town Sunset” — don’t miss it!)….

The entire effort is spearheaded by ProPublica, which PJMedia noted “poses as a middle-of-the-road non-profit journalistic operation, but in reality, it’s funded by a stable of uber-liberal donors, including George Soros‘s Open Society Foundations and Herb and Marion Sandler, billionaire former mortgage bankers whose Golden West Financial Corp. allegedly targeted subprime borrowers with ‘pick-a-pay’ mortgages that led to toxic assets that were blamed for the collapse of Wachovia.”  Read full article at DailyWire

Label anything you disagree with as “hate speech” and get shut it down. 

A perusal of the raw data that’s been compiled thus far on hate stories shows articles from a wide array of center-right sites, including The Daily Caller, Breitbart News, The Washington Times, National Review, and the Washington Examiner. It also includes many articles from liberal sites like BuzzFeed News and The New York Times. One story from PJ Media’s Bridget Johnson is included in the list. It’s a report about a Sikh ad campaign aimed at reducing hate crimes against members of their faith community. Many of the articles are simply reports about alleged hate crimes from sources running the gamut of the political spectrum….

Spencer has recently criticized Google and the SPLC here at PJ Media for their attempts to squelch dissent, so it’s not surprising that they’ve decided to target him. Only instead of fighting Spencer’s words with words of their own, they’re lashing out with actions designed to silence him. PJMedia

Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch)

Note that Google, which recently fired an employee for expressing his counter-progressive opinions, thinks this information could be used to “help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting.” What do they mean by “leverage this data”? They don’t say, but an email sent to several conservative writers by a ProPublica reporter may give us some indication. Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer along with some others received this from ProPublica “reporter” Lauren Kirchner:

I am a reporter at ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom in New York. I am contacting you to let you know that we are including your website in a list of sites that have been designated as hate or extremist by the American Defamation League or the Southern Poverty Law Center. We have identified all the tech platforms that are supporting websites on the ADL and SPLC lists.  JihadWatch

PayPal Drops Jihad Watch

Yesterday I published an email from Soros-funded ProPublica’s Lauren Kirchner, threatening to use the Southern Poverty Law Center’s spurious hate group listing to pressure various platforms to drop Jihad Watch. Kirchner apparently was angered by having her fascism publicly exposed, since even though she sent her threatening letter to many people, today at 1:45PM, ProPublica published its hit piece, and it led off with me:

Because of its “extreme hostility toward Muslims,” the website Jihadwatch.org is considered an active hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The views of the site’s director, Robert Spencer, on Islam led the British Home Office to ban him from entering the country in 2013.

But its designation as a hate site hasn’t stopped tech companies — including PayPal, Amazon and Newsmax — from maintaining partnerships with Jihad Watch that help to sustain it financially. PayPal facilitates donations to the site. Newsmax — the online news network run by President Donald Trump’s close friend Chris Ruddy — pays Jihad Watch in return for users clicking on its headlines. Until recently, Amazon allowed Jihad Watch to participate in a program that promised a cut of any book sales that the site generated. All three companies have policies that say they don’t do business with hate groups.

Within hours, PayPal bowed to this defamation.  JihadWatch

Pamela Geller:  The Death of Free Speech in America

Abandonment Of Free Speech

To those who followed the trajectory of Silicon Valley over the past few years, their abandonment of free speech last week would not have come as a surprise. Indeed, social media platforms like Twitter, which previously styled itself as “the free speech wing of the free speech party,” abandoned it long ago.

Even so, the decision of first GoDaddy and then Google and then Cloudflare to cut off support for Neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer – effectively banning them from the internet – came as a shock to many. To those who believe that all content, no matter how deplorable, should be able to exist on the web, it heralds nothing less than the end of free speech in cyberspace.

It is not just the right and far-right who have seen the danger. The Electronic Frontier Foundaton, the most prominent defenders of digital rights, also raised the alarm last week.

“Protecting free speech is not something we do because we agree with all of the speech that gets protected. We do it because we believe that no one—not the government and not private commercial enterprises—should decide who gets to speak and who doesn’t.”

“We strongly believe that what GoDaddy, Google, and Cloudflare did here was dangerous.”

To underline the gravity of what happened last week, it is important to remember that up until this point, the web has hosted every form of speech, no matter how vile. Sites dedicated to the Islamic State, to serial killers, and to pedophiles are still in operation at this very moment. Indeed, Cloudflare’s CEO once stood up to defend his platform’s right to offer their services to ISIS-linked websites.

Revisiting Condoleezza Rice’s Take On Confederate Monuments

Franklin Graham posted the below comment on his  facebook page with a link to the Condoleezza Rice comments on the monuments.

Franklin Graham:

There’s a monument in Jerusalem’s Kidron Valley called Absalom’s Pillar that has been there for a few thousand years. Absalom was a man guilty of murder, treason, and even trying to kill his own father—King David. That’s a part of history—taking it down wouldn’t change what happened. I’m thankful the monument still stands today to remind us of Absalom’s very serious and costly sins. There are monuments in our country today that remind us of the sins of our past, and taking them down isn’t going to change the mistakes we have made as a nation. They remind us of the truth—the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in May:

Before the rally was even planned, one conservative leader broached a fresh take on the matter that’s worth revisiting in light of recent events.

Asked about the value of preserving statues that honor slaveowners in a May interview on Fox News, Condoleezza Rice argued against what she called the “sanitizing” of history. “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you’ and so I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners,” she said. “I want us to have to look at those names and recognize what they did and to be able to tell our kids what they did, and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

“When you start wiping out your history, sanitizing your history to make you feel better, it’s a bad thing,” the former secretary of state added…

In an interview later that month, Rice addressed Confederate monuments again by remarking, “It’s not actually our heritage, it’s our history,” adding, “We as a people have thankfully moved on.”

White House Petition To Designate Antifa As Terrorist Organization

Update: The White House petition seeking to recognize Antifa as a terrorist org. has hit over 100K signatures.

Link to sign the petition

A new White House petition this week is calling on the Trump administration to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist organization.

“AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition, started Thursday, states. WashingtonExaminer

Violence Erupted At A Boston Free Speech Rally

Thousands of Antifa and BLM anarchist swarmed  a free speech rally in Boston on Saturday afternoon.

A Boston, Mass., free speech rally was cut short after police officers escorted the participants from the premises early Saturday afternoon.

The “Free Speech” rally, hosted in the Boston Common for “libertarians, conservatives, traditionalists, classical liberals, Trump supporters or anyone else who enjoys their right to free speech,” ended about an hour after it started, with Boston police officers showing up to escort some of the participants from the area, reports MassLive.

Only about 40-60 people showed up in support of the free speech event, while thousands of counter-protesters [Antifa and BLM anarchist] came out to rally against the “Free Speech”   DailyCaller

After the event was cut short Antifa and BLM squared off against riot police. The police officers were attacked with rocks and bottles of urine.   500 police officers were put on the streets of Boston.  33 were arrested for disruptive behavior.

 

Charlottesville Mayor: Car Attack Shows Need To Limit Concealed Carry

This makes no sense.

Not one shot was fired.  However I do remember seeing bats, clubs, and metal pipes.  Also police standing back and doing nothing. The mayor should be held accountable for the violence.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer (D) addressed the August 12 car attack that killed Heather Heyer, suggesting it highlights the need to limit concealed carry.

He said he supports the Second Amendment, and is even “friends with many gun owners,” but he thinks more restrictions are necessary following the rally in which a car attack took an innocent life.

According to the Atlantic, Signer said, “While I am…a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, that right, like all Constitutional rights, comes with limits.” He then said, “Just as machine guns cannot be owned by civilians in this country…it should not be acceptable to open-carry or concealed-carry firearms at an event of the sort we saw last weekend.” BreitBart

Anti-American Raidical Who Pulled Down Confederate Statue In Durham May Receive College Scholarship

A voice is not destruction of property.

The student charged with pushing down the Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina on Monday may be rewarded with a scholarship for her actions from North Carolina Central University.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reported on Wednesday that proposals are being made at the college to award Takiyah Thompson, who has been charged with two felonies—participation in a riot and inciting others to riot—for her actions.

News that Thompson was involved in the demonstration was reportedly met with widespread support from campus faculty and students in her Introduction to Political Science class.

“I saw the demonstration and the toppling of the monument. I think it’s a healthy thing for students to have a voice and to be leaders in activism,” said Jim C. Harper II, chair of the history department. “We’re going to do everything we can to support Ms. Thompson.”  DailyCaller

Atlanta’s Peace Monument Desecrated By Antifa

Not very bright people.  Antifa marched on Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia this week, bent on destroying the “Confederate monument” which is actually a Peace monument dedicated to Peace and the end of the Civil War.

Once they got to Piedmont Park, black-clad members of Antifa, attacked the statue, spraying it with paint, putting a chain around its neck, and attempting, unsuccessfully, to drag the giant statute off its base. When they realized they couldn’t topple the behemoth, they disbanded, but not before causing serious damage.

The Associated Press managed to capture the bold and courageous property damage as it happened.

Unfortunately for Antifa, who were clearly to busy opposing fascism to read a plaque at the base of the monument (which is printed with the words, “Cease firing, peace is priceless,”) or do any basic Google research, what they thought was a pro-Confederate memorial turned out to be a monument to peace.

The statue, which depicts an angel guiding a Confederate soldier to lay down his arms, was erected in 1911, well after the Civil War, and a part of an organized effort in Atlanta to encourage peace and healing in the wake of a bloody and destructive era in the state’s history.

“These guys realized a national healing needed to take place,” Thornton Kennedy, a local historian, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, speaking of the citizens who erected the statute at the beginning of the 20th Century. “They organized a peace tour of the North, which is really remarkable,” Kennedy said. “These were guys who fought in the Civil War, against Union troops.”  DailyWire

The Real Race War

Nigal Farage:

“The idea that an organization that calls itself ‘anti-fascist’, ‘against fascism’, that professes itself to be for ‘love’, and ‘hope’, and ‘optimism’ in my personal experience, over the course of the last few years, many people in those groups I have personally seen are some of the most unpleasant and violent people I’ve ever seen. There is a very hard-left, intolerant fascism that occurs on the left, as well as those on issues of race or religion on the far-right.”

David Horowitz:

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war. Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else. They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU. If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit? Who knows what – if anything – would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.

What “Unite the Right” actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group. This was a national show of strength that actually attracted only a few hundred people. Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshalled by two violent groups of the left – Black Lives Matter and Antifa – and you get an idea of how marginal “white supremacists” are to America’s political and cultural life.

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports. Talk about virtue signaling! Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.

Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not have a permit for Emancipation Park (they had permits for two nearby parks). But why should they need a permit, since the havoc they had previously wreaked in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as “protests,” and their rioting went completely unpunished.

In short, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville – a legal protest by “Unite the Right” and one protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life. Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable. Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.

What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy – “white supremacy” – which is really a war on white people generally.  TruthRevolt

Arrests Following Durham Statue Toppling

Three anarchist have been arrested.

The woman that climbed the statue, Takiya Thompson,  is a pro-North Korea Marxist.  Any one surprised?

Takiya Thompson

 

This isn’t about the monuments it is about anti-Americanism, it is communism and the literal pulling down of the country.

One of the activists who toppled a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., on Monday night is a member of an extreme leftist group that supports the totalitarian regime in North Korea and wants to abolish capitalism.

Taqiyah Thompson, a student at North Carolina Central University, was arrested Tuesday following a press conference in which she defended the actions of the demonstrators and equated police officers to Confederate soldiers and Ku Klux Klan members.

“I did the right thing,” she said. “Everyone who was there — the people did the right thing. The people will continue to keep making the right choices until every Confederate statue is gone, until white supremacy is gone. That statue is where it belongs. It needs to be in the garbage.”

Thompson is a member of the Worker’s World Party (WWP), a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist group originally formed in 1959 as a hard-line offshoot of the more moderate Socialist Workers Party. In addition to supporting a wide range of far-left causes, the group also defends the North Korean regime of dictator Kim Jong-un against alleged U.S. imperialism.  DailyCaller

2 More Arrested

Dante Strobino, 35, and Ngoc Loan Tran, 24, were arrested when they attended a court hearing for another woman who was charged Tuesday for climbing a ladder to attach a rope to the bronze soldier. Peter Gilbert, 39, was arrested later Wednesday afternoon.

The Durham County Sheriff’s office said the three arrested Wednesday were charged with two felonies related to inciting and participating in a riot that damaged property.

The woman who climbed the ladder, Takiyah Thompson, was charged with the same counts a day before. She is a student at historically black North Carolina Central University.

The three are affiliated with the Workers World Party. Fox

The Latest Anti-Trump Liberal Weapon: Accusing Their Critics of “Racism”

The top priority of liberals is to remove our free speech rights.

Alan M. Dershowitz:

In addition to falsely accusing their political enemies of criminal conduct, some extremists, who are determined to see Donald Trump indicted, have come up with a new weapon: accusing those who disagree with them of “racism.”

It began when I said in public what every experienced criminal lawyer was thinking in private:

“The second one [grand jury] is important because of where it is. It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump administration. So it gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage… The District of Columbia is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition which may be very unfavorable to the Trump administration…”

I did not say that the residents of the District of Columbia would be consciously unfair to indicted Trump associates, or that Black juries are more biased than white jurors. I merely observed — as the Supreme Court, the NAACP, the ACLU and all experienced lawyers have noted — that life experiences matter in jury selection and deliberation. It matters whether a jury pool is largely comprised of Democrats or Republicans, Blacks or whites, poor or wealthy. If it didn’t matter, our legal system would not go to such lengths to assure diversity in jury pools. This is an uncontroversial observation, but nothing is uncontroversial in the divisive political climate in which we live today.

So people who know better have deliberately distorted my point in order to argue that what I observed was racist. It began with Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who dilutes the powerful term “racism” by tossing it around as promiscuously as rap singers toss around “motherf***er” Here is what she said:

“What he [Dershowitz] is saying is ‘all of those black people are there and they don’t like Trump and so he’s not going to get a fair trial and so they should take it out of that jurisdiction. It shouldn’t be there to begin with.’ I don’t like that, and I’m surprised that Alan Dershowitz is talking like that. We will not stand for it. We will push back against that because that is absolutely racist.”

No one was particularly surprised, or in any way influenced, by her crying “racist” once again. If I had said the opposite of what I said — namely that race doesn’t matter in jury selection — she would have called me a racist as well.

But people were surprised when the writer Dahlia Lithwick of Slate Magazine and the lawyer Richard Painter jumped on Waters’s bigoted bandwagon. Lithwick called my observation a racial “dog whistle.” She also characterized me — a lifelong Democrat who voted for and contributed to Hillary Clinton — as a “Trump Apologist.” I am an apologist only for civil liberties and racial equality, not for a candidate against whom I voted.

Painter was even more direct — and in my opinion unethical — when he described my empirical observation (with which I am sure he privately agrees) as “racist B.S.” and “race baiting.” He mendaciously accused me of a “disgusting… attack on a member of Congress,” without mentioning that I was responding to a disgusting attack by Congresswoman Waters, in which she falsely accused me of racism. But Painter, who purports to be an “ethics” lawyer, places a low premium on truth, legal ethics and basic decency…

The civil liberties of all Americans are at stake. I will not be silenced by false and unethical charges of racism from people who are deliberately distorting my views for partisan political purposes. I will respond and expose their bias, bigotry and mendacity, because the issues are too important to be left in the hands of partisan extremists.  GateStoneInstitue

Removing Confederate Symbols

The Confederate monuments were erected in communities mainly between 1880 and the 1920’s. It tells use how Americans at that time confronted their past, what they chose to remember and what they chose to forget.

Historic Sprawl, a blog focusing on the history of the Baltimore-Washington area,  has some fascinating documents from 1880 of public figures expressing their misgivings over the monuments.

What we do today about the Confederate monuments will tell a great deal about ourselves.

Thomas Lifson adds:  “I agree with Tucker Carlson, that the Civil War-Slavery Memory Hole is merely a pretext for a much bigger and more sinister goal.  The endgame is to delegitimize the Constitutional Republic.  A majority of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were slaveholders.  The Constitution was drafted by James Madison, a slave-owner.  If these figures are now beyond the pale (or will be soon), then logically, there is no reason to cling to the Bill of Rights or the Electoral College or any of the other instruments of an illegitimate racist regime.”

Video:  Protesters in Durham topple Confederate statue (they forgot their mask)

How is this different than the ISIS terrorist removing all monuments to other religions all across the Middle East?

A crowd of protesters gathered outside the old Durham County courthouse on Main Street Monday evening in opposition to a Confederate monument in front of the government building.

Around 7:10 p.m. a woman [Takiyah Thompson, 22, who claimed she is a member of the Workers World Party] climbed the statue using a ladder and attached a rope around the statue.  Moments later, The crowd pulled on the rope and the statue fell. One man quickly ran up and spat on the statue and several others began kicking it.

In 1924, the Confederate statue was dedicated to Durham.  Engraved on the front of the monument is “The Confederate States of America.”  Above it, is a statue representing a soldier who fought in the civil war.  WNCN

Same idea of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in 2015, “we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.”

After a Durham, North Carolina, monument of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle was pulled down by protesters on Monday, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews said Tuesday his office will seek charges against the protesters…

Andrews stated, “Collectively, we decided that restraint and public safety would be our priority. As the Sheriff, I am not blind to the offensive conduct of some demonstrators nor will I ignore their criminal conduct. With the help of video captured at the scene, my investigators are working to identify those responsible for the removal and vandalism of the statue.” DailyWire

Islamists and leftists inciting more division as it serves their purpose – chaos and oppression.  Saudi Arabia only abolished slavery in 1962 and there is evidence is that the slave trade in Saudi Arabia has only moved out of sight.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.

CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. At the Charlottesville, Va. rally, James Alex Fields, a rally attendee, allegedly plowed his grey Dodge Challenger through a large group of people on a pedestrian mall. One woman, Heather Heyer, died in the incident. About 20 other people suffered injuries.

Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.  DailyCaller

Destroy history or learn from it?  Just make it all vanish?   In our nation’s history the good, the bad, and the in-between is instructive. Throughout history tyrants have sought to destroy history. Continue reading Removing Confederate Symbols

One Easy Way Democrats Can Stop Neo-Nazis

Greenfield:  Charlottesville is what happens when the Left empowers extremists.

In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers.

The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere.  Ta-Nehisi Coates and Ibram X. Kendi are lionized as brilliant thinkers instead of hateful racists, Amazon has ordered a black nationalist secessionist fantasy from Aaron McGruder and Showtime aired ‘Guerilla,’ a miniseries glamorizing Black Panther terrorism.

But racism is a two-way street. So is violence. Extremists feed into each other.

You can’t legitimize one form of racism without legitimizing all of them. The media may advance this hypocritical position. Obama used the shameful “reverse racism” euphemism that distinguishes between black and white racism. But propaganda and spin don’t change the physics of human nature.

Either all racism is bad. Or all racism is acceptable.

Charlottesville is what happens when you normalize racism and street violence. Every normalization of extremism equally normalizes the extremism of the opposite side.

A civil society depends on a consensus. ‘Racism is bad’ is an example of such a consensus. If you normalize black nationalism, you will get more white nationalism. If you normalize leftist street violence against Trump supporters, you will also get more street violence against leftists.

Extremists want to eliminate the consensus of civil society. They want to destroy the idea that there’s any solution except violence through confrontations that show the helplessness of civil society.

That’s true of black nationalists and white nationalists, of Communists and Nazis, of Antifa and  Vanguard, of the tankies and hipster Nazis of the Alt-Left and the Alt-Right. They’re a set of evil twins and when you unleash one, you unleash the other. Their real enemies aren’t each other, but everyone in the middle. The bourgeois normies who don’t want to replace society with their totalitarian nightmare.

Street violence raises the bar so that only the violent will participate in protests. If you “no platform” campus speakers, then the only speakers you get will be those willing to face bomb threats, arson, and physical assaults. If you fire people for their views, political activism becomes the province of anonymous trolls and unemployed street thugs. Extremism limits political discourse to extremists.

If Democrats really want to stop the rise of Neo-Nazi violence, there’s a very easy way. Stop normalizing black nationalism and the Alt-Left. End the racist witch hunts for white privilege. Make it clear that street violence is unacceptable and that racism is bad no matter who it comes from. Allow people you disagree with to express their views without trying to destroy their lives.
