So you are convinced that the white supremacists are completely and totally innocent and never made any threats of murder or physical harm to counter protesters? White supremacists were simply standing on the sidewalk, out of everyone's way, silent, not posting anything online anywhere? That is what you are saying? I suppose you believe Japan was completely innocent in WWII also.....
There used to be a saying which has now fallen into disuse that went "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". Did you seriously just try to draw a parallel between Japan, who entered World War II with the unprovoked bombing of US warships in Pearl Harbor, and the Proud Boys, who posted some taunting BS online with the obvious purpose of getting Antifa all riled up? I'm beginning to understand why the Far Left wants so badly to suppress and censor free speech: Apparently they're incapable of making a distinction between words and actions.
I am trying to understand the defense of violent right wing radicals who have a history of murder, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and fraud. Like I said: it would be like defending the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor.
I get it now. The right-wing analog of what you're saying is that defending Antifa is the same as defending Josef Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, and Che Guevara for all the atrocities they committed in pursuit of their Far Left utopian societies.
Neither comparison is relevant to the events of today.
You're reaching quite a bit on that one since I didn't equate soy boys with Antifa, but I'll play along anyway because news footage suggests that the two groups are not mutually exclusive. Even the skinniest, scraggliest soy boy can be a legitimate threat when blinded by self-righteous rage, bolstered in courage by being surrounded by a small army of his comrades, desperate to prove a point, and armed with implements of mayhem such as hammers, crow bars, nerf bars (although where in 2019 one would even find a nerf bar remains a mystery), bricks, rocks, etc.
Or guns like this strapping, muscular, manly....oh wait he's not antifa and he's kinda scragly. Whoops.
What about this hunk of muscle? Ugh my bad he's not antifa either and pretty skinny. (I honestly forgot about this synagogue shooting. Wow. Y'all are racking them up!)
Oh here's one that isn't so 'soy boy'...still not antifa though. Hrmph.
Wow, my definition of "soy boys" must have really pressed your buttons, though I genuinely have no idea why it would. For comparison, here is the definition of "soy boy" from The Urban Dictionary
"Soy Boy- Slang used to describe males who completely and utterly lack all necessary masculine qualities. This pathetic state is usually achieved by an over-indulgence of emasculating products and/or ideologies.
The origin of the term derives from the negative effects soy consumption has been proven to have on the male physique and libido.
The average soy boy is a feminist, nonathletic, has never been in a fight, will probably marry the first girl that has sex with him, and likely reduces all his arguments to labeling the opposition as 'Nazis'."
When did I ever say that bat-crap-crazy "lone wolf" shooters of Far Left, Far Right, or any other ideology and soy boys were mutually exclusive groups, either?
