Following President Donald Trump’s statement condemning violence “on many sides” in Charlottesville, many were quick to jump to the defense of the militant, far-left Antifa, for reasons that can only be described as biased and ignorant. Unfortunately, one of those people includes the 2012 Republican Party presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

On Tuesday evening, Romney seemed to express support for the Antifa when he tweeted that they oppose “racism and bigotry”:

While Romney did not explicitly name the Antifa, the radical, violent group often describes themselves as “anti-fascist” and “anti-racist.” And as it’s white supremacists and far-left extremists who are responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, it can only be assumed that Romney was defending the latter.

It’s extremely unfortunate that Romney is perpetuating the liberal lie that the violent actions of Antifa thugs are somehow justified. The truth is that neo-Nazis and the Antifa are two sides of the same radical coin; but you’d never know that listening to the mainstream media. At a Tuesday press conference, MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson was appalled when Trump equated the two groups. But the President stuck to his guns and correctly stated that there is indeed “blame on both sides”:

The Antifa pose as revolutionary altruists, but the truth is they are no more accepting of people who think differently than them than neo-Nazis are of people who look differently than them. Both are to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, and neither are a true representation of America.
