In response to ‘Rebel Priest’ Rev Jules Gomes: The Left is way more dangerous than loony white supremacists, MorganCourtenay wrote:
The extreme Right and the extreme Left are one and the same. Both masquerade behind what they claim is justice, both pretend to be the victim of justified disgust with their beliefs, both will pose as peaceful, reasonable people while using every violent tactic in the book to attack and subdue innocent, ordinary people.
Obviously, as a black woman, I am disgusted and appalled by the white supremacist schmooze-fest in Charlottesville - lunatics (although not all of these lunatics are unintelligent people) in bedsheets ranting, raving and endangering innocent people only increases contempt for their bilge.
That being said, the extreme Left are not the saviours they claim to be, and their odious self-righteousness, hypocrisy, hatred and contradictory ideology, which makes them trumpet the cause of justice while stamping on the rights won for all free citizens makes them just as fraudulent. Furthermore, they don't seem to realise or mind that their own excess of folly empowers the vile white supremacists, and vice versa. It's a pathetic cycle.
