    Both the far left and the far right will always exist, so none in itself is a reaction to the other. They both feed off one another and increase in power in a symbiotic relationship, but they're not "created" in response to any one person or event.

    And they are more alike than they are different. Antifa and KKK: both authoritative, hate-mongering, and violent.

    Because I'm disgusted with the Republican party. Long ago, I started writing "GROW A SPINE" on their solicitations with prepaid postage return envelopes. I get VERY FEW solicitations from the Republicans these days.

    Yes, the left's wonderful new plan is "kill more babies", "erase the borders", "admit more illegals", and "free stuff for everybody".

    It's the middle that has pretty much disappeared. Just out of curiosity, how many conservative Democrats do you know? We used to have some of those.

    You are an example of what I mean when I say that Trump is the result of a MSM that incessantly savages conservatives and a cry from their members to fight back for once.

    Trump is fighting back, but in such a nutty way. If he were capable of drawing people together instead of dividing, 2020 would be a landslide in his favor.

    Their respective goals differ. KKK is white supremacist, racist, fascism, while Antifa is anti-white supremacy, racist, fascism. The two don't exactly fit the same category.
