    Edit because reactionaries can't or can't be bothered to read about hate crime and political violence related to them, i'm going to highlight one article:

    From November 9 to December 12, 2016. Trump supporters who mentioned Trump by name during their attacks committed 418 hate crimes, in that same time period only 24 hate crimes were perpetrated against Trump supporters.

    I also can't claim to have made this list myself, it's the work of /u/marisam7 on reddit, I just added a few noteworthy additions since 2017.

    Although sometimes the noise gets pretty bad i must say. So we must be careful about being mad. Mad is a funny word. If everyone is mad then well the plurality of a that is a singular we call madness. Mad such a funny word. that calls for an old song from before history began in 1995.

    Such a paranoid, violent and angry culture. They're born that way.

    Leftists actually have a higher kill count , but I admire your work in the OP and I bless and pray for the victims of right wing atrocities.

    Maybe you should listen to someone other than Goebbels and Mussolini

    Hatred is learned, not a "born that way" trait.

    I know I've been guilty of it too, but is it really useful to compare your average conservative or your average liberal to such extreme examples?

    Must of taken awhile to compile the list(s) to make it look epidemic and overwhelming.

    Your finger must be tired from all the keyboarding.

    Yes, because multiple Trump supporters shooting up synagogues and associating themselves with Nazi imagery is not overwhelming.

    With the exception of the last synagogue shooting, all entries are 2017 or earlier. If making the list any longer would make any difference to you there's another year and a half to build it up.

    I'm no fan of Obama, but he's your least favourite president. Can you find a single instance of people saying "heil obama"? A single instance of a group of people chanting Obama over and over again while they beat someone? A single instance of an Obama supporter burning a mosque and going on the record to say Obama inspired them to do it?

    You either have the most cognitive dissonance of anyone on this forum or just don't care at all about the truth.

    I was responding to a self-professed fascist who adores Mussolini, I was not comparing a conservative to a fascist.

    Nice collection of single solitary events spread out over time. Some are obviously false as it's just hearsay and not verifiable, but meh whatevs. It's nothing compared to the violent far left that is organized. Groups like Antifa, Nambla, and BAMN. Can't blame ya for trying to deflect and draw attention away from the true villains in the west. Soon they'll be hunted down like the animals they are and be dealt with though.

    You're totally against all of this far-right violence. Right.
