Listening to some repeat the idea the hate predominates the left because of Antifa isn't new, but it sure is tiresome. People taking anecdotal evidence from videos that lack context and putting them up as "evidence" is only part of it.
Every time I hear this, my response is that real hate isn't 200+ people marching with tiki torches because they think jews will replace them, but rather the insidious corners of the Internet that thrive on framing the threat as black, immigrant or something else. I think back to this article, "Inside the Trial of Dylann Roof", that points back to his own source of information that led him to murder nine people during a prayer service. The Council of Conservative Citizens website is still up, sharing gems from inforwars and feeds on "US Illegal Alien Crime Reports" and "Muslim Statistics". Yeah, its just free speech, right?
"The information war is real, and we’re losing it" sums it up pretty well.
“Your brain tells you ‘Hey, I got this from three different sources,’ ” she says. “But you don’t realize it all traces back to the same place, and might have even reached you via bots posing as real people. If we think of this as a virus, I wouldn’t know how to vaccinate for it.”
