Conservatives are violent just like Antifa is?

Conservatives will criticize Antifa for using violence against people for using their freedom of speech in ways the organization doesn't like. However, here is a post i'v seen many of my hillbilly friends share which shows you they don't really care about freedom either



Ah, so it's okay to assault atheists but not white supremacists? So, assaulting someone in the name of your friend who is dying for their right to say what you're assaulting them for... makes sense and is justified? The conservatives who post this are pinko anti American commie devils.

No college professor would ever say something so juvenile; these "atheist professor gets owned" masturbatory fantasies that Christian conservatives love to post on social media are just garbage and stem from the uneducated minds of those who've never set foot on a college campus 馃ぃ

[@712527,AgapeLove] Sure, not denying that professors and courses can be loony, but these memes are just fantasies; the "atheist professor gets put in his place by virtuous Christian student" is an old right-wing trope.

So it's hard for me to take things like this seriously. I don't think anyone is actually punching professors or seriously advocating that students d oso.

Antifa on the other hand is more of a reality.

[@616462,QUINN221] Remember when Brett Weinstein was a fucking hostage at evergreen state?
SW User
[@712527,AgapeLove] Yeah can't believe that was allowed to happen at an American college. Absurd. Though to be fair, Evergreen State is a joke for even having the tradition of a "no white people" day.

So the hillbillies are marching in San Francisco? I didn't know that. Here in Canada antifa was beating up little old ladies. Didn't see any hillbillies in Toronto. Toronto is a bit back woods but they are leftists not rightists.

You damn sure didn't know that, and I didn't say that either.

Would you like a list of crimes committed by the aryan brotherhood? Hilbillies have been violent too. I hate Antifa, I just recognize that many ppl who criticize them would be violent as well.

[@712527,AgapeLove] Your leftist hatred is showing again. Seek help soon. Terrible to walk around trying to make people evil all the while ignoring evil.
AgapeLoveM
[@10033,hippyjoe1955] I think leftism is a terrible ideology to devote ones life too, and I think the left is responsible for much of the evils of this world. I also think the right is, but you want me to be like "right wing good, left wing bad" and I'm just not silly enough to think that way

Well it's actually a fake meme but still, I imagine conservatives share it like it actually happened. As to the actual content, to me it's nothing but a persecution complex as well as a God complex, "God spoke through me and said to teach you a lesson."

As if they are SO special that God specifically talked to them and let them know that it was OK to be a gang enforcer.

[@394395,satanburger] I know it didn't really happen, because most college professors aren't that dumb and most marines actually aren't as hawkish as they like us to think (their favorite candidate back in 2012 was Ron Paul, who is anti-war). But still, the fact that they share this is telling. If I shared a meme glorifying Antifa punching a white nationalist, they'd be like "muh freedom of speech" but what about someone's freedom of speech to be secular?
SolveEtCoagula31-35, F
[@712527,AgapeLove] Yeah I get the point you were making, I was agreeing that the meme is gross. I cringe whenever I hear people using their religion for an excuse.

[@394395,satanburger] Sometimes I contemplate violence as a method of achieving certain greater goods, but I don't think it's the right way to go. If we as a society see violence against people for having taboo opinions as just, then what happens when the right opinions become taboo? It's not like the people I'd want to crush will just sit still and take it. That's why I support the first amendment, because the moment I make acceptations could be the moment that the speech I like becomes criminalized. Ultimately, I believe violence from citizen to citizen should probably only be used defensively.
But straight up, I DO empathize, and I honestly don't give a shit in my heart of hearts when someone making minimum wage breaks the window of a billionaire's business.... all it means is that the billionaire will loose money supplying jobs for people who need the money to clean it up.

You should check out this post where I try to discuss the ethics of vandalism, which my opinion has changed a little since then.

You鈥檙e going to have to cast farther than this to successfully troll here
You can't just classify entire groups of people and label them all violent.... That's extremely ignorant and dramatic. Don't shit stir and think before you open your mouth
