    Years ago, adolescence and the stupidity that goes with it, pretty much ended at 18. Nowadays, adolescent behavior is common by many in their 20s,30s, and beyond. This immature child in his twenties is an example of one such person.

      Not quite. They were nationalists, not liberals. They killed and marginalized liberals, communists, and traditional socialists, in addition to Jews and Christians. The “nationalism” is the scary theme that is repeated with “America First” rhetoric. They weren’t right wing or left, but focused first on consolidating executive power, economic growth above civil rights, and heavy military spending. Sounds familiar?

    Too many young men with nothing better to do. I think we witnessed that on both sides of the line in Charlottesville the other day, perfect little tools of the left.
