Overnight Open Thread (17 Jun 2017)

This has been readily apparent if you've been paying attention. Extremism experts are starting to worry about the left. This statement highlights the problem. It was OK to ignore extremism from the left.

I think were in a time when we cant ignore the extremism from the Left, said Oren Segal, the director of the Center on Extremism, an arm of the Anti-Defamation League.

I bet he would say that there is never a time where they could ignore extremism from the right. But this is the problem everywhere. The media ignores problems with the left across all aspects of government but pounces on every single incident involving the right. This kind of behavior just exacerbates the problem. Equal focus on both sides would actually tamp down these issues.

In case there is any doubt about where this is headed, look at what Antifa is doing.

Before the rally began, I witnessed a small group of masked people standing at a distance and monitoring Gibson's group as they arrived. They declined to comment beyond stating that they were there to "document" the event.

A young male dressed in black was later seen taking photographs of license plates belonging to the cars of people with Gibson's group as they were driving away.


Eventually, they'll start showing up at your house.
