Yaron Brook: Charlottesville violence shows ‘battle between alt-right and alt-left’

Two violent, extreme ideologies are clashing in our minds, on our university campuses and even on our streets. Both the alt-right and the Antifa movement want a form of fascism in a collectivist society, Yaron Brook explained on this week’s episode of “The Yaron Brook Show.”

“Both, I think, represent a real threat to the country,” he said.

On Saturday, white nationalists marched in Charlottesville and clashed with counter-protesters. A man is in prison after allegedly plowing his car into a group of people protesting white supremacy; one woman died, while 19 other people were injured. The madness started Friday night when white supremacists protested the city’s decision to take down a Confederate-era statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Yaron analyzed the media reaction to Charlottesville and similar events, noting that liberal media tend to ignore violence fueled by progressive ideas. He also looked at examples of liberals who are unafraid to point out the dangers of the growing Antifa movement.

“It’s good to see people on the left condemning this,” he said. “I wish it was more.”
