Candice Owens overstated her case but so does BLM. Why not call them BOTH out?

did he really just call far-right extremists "conservative groups" what an absolute idiot.... these people are disgusting propagandists. those people do not belong nor would they be accepted into any "conservative group"

I mean.... could these idiots be any more liberal? why don't they just come out as advocates of antifa short for (anti first ammendment), and then tell everyone they want Facebook to shut down conservatives... they do everything but admit it

I wouldnt say that this is 'news' in the fashion that TD generally produces.. and while I dont disagree with what is being shared on this episode, I would describe this as more propaganda for the NYT / left agenda. again, I agree with the subject matter and general sentiment, but I feel like this is reaching for content and akin to the bs that fox and shiz produces somedayzzz
