Please. My context is politics since the election, not random events by nutcases.

hope you get your computer fixed soon.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." –Mark Twain "

You can "get answers" by watching the ducks. That doesn't mean the answers are coming from them.~Ringo

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.
In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.

You’re the one insisting on an apples to oranges comparison. Violent extremists versus violent extremists is an apples to apples comparison. Ordinary voters to ordinary voters is an apples to apples comparison. You object to the first, you won’t try the second.

Want to explain why ?

Re: No one?
In your own words. We can all see what you said to Jon. Practice what you preach. And actual written sources rather than search lists of videos, please if you must provide links.

You can compare organised political violence to organised political violence if you like.

You're so filled with hate. It's sad.

Re: No one?
All you have to do is open the link and look at the titles, not asking much.

Re: No one?
Wrong. I have to find out the actual content. I have to investigate the actual events - not just rely on what someone says on a video. And that is because I care about the truth.

Watch those goalposts fly! From "no right wing violence" to "no right wing violence in the current context" to "no political right wing violence since November 2016"!

Does the same caveat apply to antifa? What specific antifa incidents meet that criteria? What is your definition of "politics"? Do political arguments count?

Charlottesville.

I keep listing incidents of recent right-wing violence, forcing you to move the goalposts in a vain attempt to avoid admitting you are wrong.

Re: No one?
Present your evidence here in your own words.

As you've insisted so many times.

If you won't click a link don't expect others to.
