    Freedom. America. Speech. When you are a citizen you can travel to where you want within America, protected by the first Amendment. Yet, Antifa still thinks their rights are above those who they disagree with? Absolutely despicable.

    Both sides think they're the good guys & the other side are the bad guys. When it comes to peace, both sides stand together as one of the same.

    Another example of inaccurate coverage of the news - What will it take for NBC and the other left media channels to report the real truth... For the record, the so called Right Wingers left early for a BBQ. The trouble started when Antifa group stared to acting up and beating up ordinary people on the street. Woops there it is...

    Fox has covered very little of this. Trump has spent millions on media content control with fox, but now has sued them for cancelling his credit line.

    The violence was antifa! The disturbance was antifa! The attackers were antifa! The instigators and aggressors were antifa! And those arrested were antifa! There wasn't any far right clashes! Just biased media to lie about the truth.

    Great job at one sided reporting once again, nbc. smh. The trump supporters were trying to hold a non-violent rally which got diverted by very violent antifa members as per usual.. And of course msm sidles up the support to the true fascists (antifa) as expected.

    But you got people in Hong Kong fighting for their freedom, while here in the USA we have Antifa fighting to get rid of our freedoms! Crazy huh? Seems like Antifa was created to silence us and get rid of our freedoms?

    Antifa is the modern day Brownshirts. They hide there faces like cowards. And do the bidding of communist and anarchists. Well brainwashed by colleges, media and Hollywood.

    ANTIFA: there is no place for nazi's or hate speech
    RIGHT: we defend all views but condemn nazi's
    ANTIFA : any view that differs from ours is hate speech and makes you a racist nazi

    "Agitator's"? So if someone feels I am an agitator they have the right to attack me? They have the right to follow me around and harass me? Antifa didn't have to be there at that time. They could have chosen to walk away but they didn't. They went out of their way to irritate this group of people. It seems to me they are agitators.

    What exactly makes them a ""far right"" group, The American Flags ? Or the MAGA hats ? There was not a single kkk or white supremacist at this thing yet NBC is still pushing the narrative that conservatives = Far right racist crazys while Antifa are some kind of counter Hero's . NBC's hatred for the president has blinded their network with such rage they can no longer even report the news without a biased political spin. SHAME ON YOU NBC. Also stop villianizing our brave men & women of ALL COLORS who serve as first responders and Law enforcement
