Why is this news? Because the Left loves to use ‘Hate’ as a political weapon, a crowbar to press its agenda forward. And as the record shows, if they can’t find hate (which they often can’t), they have no qualms about faking it with “false flag” operations.

In this graphic, both German Nazism and Soviet Communism would be together at the top, while a confederated, tribal system of local authority would be near (but not at) the bottom.
