As a Christian, I believe white supremacists and neo-Nazis are pure evil. They hate blacks and Jews. I believe, President Trump in his first statement after the violence in Charlottesville, made a mistake by not condemning them by name. But there was a violence by the other side that the liberal media refuses to condemn.
Antifa was also guilty of violence and are a radical violent group. The Daily Caller reported "Antifa's violence ranges from stabbing a police horse in the neck to beating people with bike locks." Antifa thugs are known for assaulting police officers and chasing down fleeing people in order to beat them. At Berkeley, Antifa groups rioted, destroyed property, beat people with flagpoles and pepper sprayed a woman in the face. Just recently they attacked a peaceful prayer rally near Berkeley, kicking and punching them and attacking their leader.
Columnist Jack Kerwick wrote "Antifa is an enemy of civilization. Its members regularly march under the banner of the Sickle and Hammer, have long referred to America as a 'fascist' state, and have a habit of burning American flags. Antifa should be identified for the terrorist organization that it is."
The left is filled with people who hate America and our president. A Democrat politician from Missouri, Senator Chappelle-Nadal said that she hopes President Trump will be assassinated. A Nebraska Democratic party official said he was "glad" that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot. Not just that, but "I wish he was dead."
Now it's time for us to come together. We don't have to agree on everything. In Matthew 5:44, Jesus said,"but I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you." Love is always better than hate.
