US: Whilst the left berates white nationalism in Charlottesville, they remain silent on Antifa

(Charlottesville) The left have quite rightly pointed out the racist elements found within the "Unite the Right" held in Virginia over the weekend, where after violence from both sides of the argument, a 20-year-old man drove a car into a load of people protesting against the march killing a woman and injuring many more. I myself was surprised at how a protest against the removal of a statue of General Lee due to political correctness quickly earned the status of casus belli for the far right who decided to flock to the city from all 4 corners in which to preach their hatred:
At their Friday night rally at the University of Virginia, the white nationalists brandished torches and chanted anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans, including “blood and soil” (an English rendering of the Nazi “blut und boden”) and “Jews will not replace us” — all crafted to cast Jews as foreign interlopers who need to be expunged. The attendees proudly displayed giant swastikas and wore shirts emblazoned with quotes from Adolf Hitler. One banner read, “Jews are Satan’s children.”
I'm not sure how the above band of inbred brothers (and sisters) went down with the locals , but the media quickly migrated this story to being more important than Nuclear war and of course the Left also gravitated to the city in which to express their anger, In plain binary terms the media have painted the right as evil and the left as good regards Charlottesville, yet there were a number of incidents where the protesters were attacked, which is something that the elements of the far left are happy to do. Not only that, but whilst everybody is made aware of the racism and anti-Semitism written into the DNA of the White nationalists, the media has remained silent on an equally racist mindset from the left. Here is a tweet of a handout passed around by antifa (Bunch of leftwing thugs who like to dress up as women) regards the final solution:
Just to make my stance clear, I have no time for racists, of any colour.
