Oh look. The "free speech" brigade is attacking Antifa and UC Berkeley again.

Don't these morons have anything better to do? Do they not realize attacking Antifa already destroys their "free speech" arguments? The best thing to do is ignore them. If you feed the troll they only get stronger. If you ignore them, they get weaker.

1. Couldn't the exact same argument be made the other way?

If no one shows up to protest a Ben Shapiro speech, and goes to do something productive and only a handful of his conservative toadies show up to hear him, it really will be like it never happened.

2. The Alt-Right,

white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and others on the hateful right are not the same as those who demonstrate against fascism – the ‘both sides’ rhetoric fails as a false comparison fallacy.

The Alt-Right, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and others on the hateful right seek to disadvantage and discriminate against blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, and gay and transgender Americans – those who oppose neo-fascist movements do not.

4. I know. It's absurd to think "many sides" cause it.

And it's driving me crazy that the alt right thinks we're all the violent ones. We didn't bear the shit out of innocent black people in Charlottesville. We are not the ones showing up to rallies with giant AK-47s and AR-15s to intimidate the other side. The alt right needs to get over themselves.

3. Look where?

Do you have a link, a source, anything so the reader knows what you are referring to?

5. It was Twitter last night.

The alt right "free speech" brigade thinks they own free speech again and we're trashing Antifa.
