Not the solution. Go back downstairs and stay there until you learn how to behave. It seems some of the Alt-Right have made it back from the rally and are now leaving comments on IJR. Pffffttt... Stop condoning this bs. Nobody deserves to be assaulted or killed because of what they believe in, whether real or imagined, whether true or not, not the Alt-Right, not Antifa, not anybody. It's too bad incidents like 911 are the only type of thing that has the propensity to bring people together in this country. Kim Jong un and co. are not going to give one f*ck about what your beliefs are...
