An admirable trait in a man. I'm pretty sure that televised news is the very worst possible way to find out what's going on in the world.

However, you do have a connection to the internet.

www.foxnews.com

www.foxandfriends.com

I do try and read them; I need balance, but it is trying reading them.

You're going to have to back that up.
My maternal grandparents were forced out of their own businesses by Mussolini's Blackshirts. There was nothing socialist or lefty about it either.
You cannot make such uninformed statements without proof, sir.

Antifa in the USA are a handful of spoiled rich suburbanite kids who thought the German punk rock squatter ersatz Antifa were cool, so they emulate them but the 1930s Antifa in Europe specifically fought pitched street battles with the NSDAP.

And, of course, just like the pitched street battles being pitched here, they accomplished nothing.

And those groups, Antifa USA, the 1980's German squatter Antifa and the originals from the 1930s, were all Communists.

The black flag represents Anarchy, the red flag represents Communism.
Antifa is largely a Communist group.

Eugenics came after Genetics. Genetics 1865, Eugenics 1883

Eugenics - "In 1883, one year after Darwin's death, Galton gave his research a name: eugenics. With the introduction of genetics, eugenics became associated with genetic determinism, the belief that human character is entirely or in the majority caused by genes, unaffected by education or living conditions." A quick quote from a Google search.

No, one can wear a suit and tie, like Richard Spencer, or David Duke.
In fact, the notion of doing away with the shaved heads, swastikas and hoods is even alluded to in popular drama.

If you want, you can skip to 2:23 in the clip, or watch the whole thing. I recommend watching the entire movie.

Yes, watching foxnews.com or foxandfriends.com is a way to balance out the leftist media. But I have spent more time on the CHBRR in the last week than I have spent on those websites this year.

When it comes to sartorial splendor few gentlemen can beat Pres. Obama.

Thanks for reminding me about a great movie! I'm going to get from Netflix. I tried watching the clip but the audio was bad even though I had my speakers at 10.

Just for the record, and maybe to get back to the subject of my original post, it is my opinion that Pres. Trump is about as much an American Conservative as he is an eloquent extemporaneous public speaker.

I can only say that it seems like your speakers might need help because when I tried to video chat with you via my very excellent desktop setup it was impossible.

The audio in the clip isn't as good as the original film but to be honest, it's actually not too bad.
I suspect your speakers or your sound card.

"My maternal grandparents were forced out of their own businesses by Mussolini's Blackshirts. There was nothing socialist or lefty about it either."
Before Mussolini and Giovanni Gentile created Fascism they were both Socialists. They created Fascism because they saw that the future predicted by Marx in his writings was not happening. To make Socialism advance, as the good socialists that they were, they created Fascism as an updating of the ideas of Marx.
