Antifa and anti-Semitism

What distinguishes the left these days is its compulsion to forego dialogue and portray conservatism as inherently evil, while giving a pass to progressives who engage in violence, intimidation, and public vandalism., 11/6/2017, 9:50 AM

Filling the spiritual void with politics - doesn't work
