    Yeah, the guy that killed a Trump supporter in Portland, who declared himself, by his own words, "100 percent Antifa"... magically wasn't Antifa either, rite?
    If they hadn't assassinated him and had instead followed the constitution and arrested and charged him, then yes, presumably the court filings would have reflected his Antifa affiliation, and he would then have been the one exception in the AP analysis.

    What's interesting about that guy was his uniqueness:
    Antifa Protester Implicated in Killing of Trump Supporter in Oregon

    For the first time, a self-identified member of the militant movement known as antifa has been implicated in a fatal shooting...

    Unusual case of lethal violence

    If Reinoehl is implicated in the case, it would mark the first time in recent years that an antifa supporter has been charged with homicide, said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University.

    "Unlike the white supremacist and the far right, which glorifies mass violence by loners and small cells against minorities and enemies, hard-left violence has generally been less fatal and more directed towards property, racists and to a lesser extent police and journalists," Levin said.

    Gary LaFree, chairman of the University of Maryland's criminology department, said the case could potentially be included in the university's Global Terrorism Database as the first act of terror linked to antifa.

      The conservative mindset doesn't cope well with statistical analysis, it works only on anecdotes and retold and mistold stories and guilt by association. So if there was one Antifa guy that did something, ever, in the history of the world, it makes everyone on the left guilty of everything always. No amount of statistical or scientific proof that the right wing does more violence and terrorism will get through to their minds, because they have their one example. n = 1, thus proven.

        That is just stupid. Your link proved nothing. It certainly did not show that the majority of the violence and looting is not being done by the left. And the unfounded assumption that Antifa members would admit to it. Or even if Antifa members are being caught to any large degree.

        Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...
