Now my argument is that the left wing in the United States has become more violent and more radical in recent years. But their violence is often ignored or excused by media and other left wingers I have personally spoken with on the issue. (see Chris Cuomo on CNN about a protest where antifa fought and he argued that "not all punches are equal" and "it's a fight between good and evil") I think especially today it is important to have dialogue in this era of extreme partisanship. Now for Rules: 1st round will be acceptance of the challenge, 2nd will be opening arguments, 3rd will be rebuttals, And 4th shall be the conclusion.

It is the radical right who supports the death penalty, Illegal wars, Stand your ground laws, Police prutality, And similar things. Most progressives are opposed to these things. True, Some have claimed to be democratic, But does claiming to be President make me so? I am a centrist and have issues with both parties, But having actually been on the left, I feel I know what I am talking about. I want to add my final comment: We should be the United States, Not the red or blue states. Peace.

@DonovanR

Are you having problems with posting your argument?

Instead of pasting the link of a source copy the title instead.

If that does not work post each paragraph in the comment section to see which one is the problem.

ummmmm check your facts, M8
the debate's about whether the left wing is becoming *more* violent, Statistics that say that the right wing is currently more violent doesn't really cancel our or disprove the left wing's steadily increasing rate of violence.
Also omar2345 stop putting hyperlinks instead of arguing, We don't do that here

ummmmm check your facts, Guys.

from 2008 to 2017 which is pretty recent and couldn't risen up that quickly, According to quartz, 71 percent of domestic exremist related killings were done by far right and only 3 percent by the left wing soooo

Left and Right violence I would say are politically motivated. I wouldn't regard religious violence fits into that but will regard groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, KKK (if they are still around) because those are political motivated. There are exceptions to the rule like Islam where it teaches Muslims how there government, Culture and life should operate (Sharia Law, Hijab, Praying 5 times a day).

If you want more go through Tim Pool's channel both Timcast and Tim Pool. Even though I do not agree with him on issues I still respect that he is willing to call out left wing violence and right wing violence. Even he can admit that the Left are more violent then the right. There are some reasons: Antifa are much more active then any other far right group. If you count Proud Boys as a far right group then they have been involved with one encounter with Antifa but it still does not mean they are more active then Antifa. Antifa have more numbers then Proud Boys and they also engage in with more conflicts.

I do not blame blame right-wing peaceful Republicans for right-wing violence.
It do not blame left-wing peaceful democrats for left-wing violence.

Not confirmed to be a democrat voter who shot up a republican office but I know the far left do not fight fair and use cheap tactics.
