    weren’t the guys with torches those same guys who drove a car into protesters?

      The guy who “drove a car into protestors” was at a standstill on the road and was swarmed by a mob of leftists. They started beating on his car, so he reversed and slammed on the gas. The path behind him was fairly clear, but as he reversed a lady ran into the path of the car and was hit. From the video I saw it appeared she was going to join in on the smashing.
      A mob surrounding your car and beating it is considered a deadly situation; he was free to slam on the gas to get out of it.

      Since that lady literally ran into the car and got herself killed, the news always mentions the protest as “deadly,” as if people were being lynched or something.

        Thank you.

        I saw a history about that saying the guy on the car runned over people because one of the antifas/leftists(a professor, theres a video of him talking about it on a class) was with a rifle and threatened him.

    The horseshoe is about methods, not specific policy points. As in both fars tend to be authoritarian and easily offended. You are free to disagree, but it’s not a good look to so grossly misrepresent.

      Saying it’s about “methods,” and therefore declaring horseshoe arguable point, is disingenuous. The “right” and “left” have far different ideals, and differ how to go about what they think is best. Declaring them both the same because of authoritarianism completely discards the core beliefs of both fascism and communism (extreme right and left), and completely ignores the concept of democracy or any sort of citizen rule.
      A much better generalized approach to politics, in my opinion, is seeing the political spectrum as a triangle, with each point of the triangle being Fascism, Communism, and Democracy (meaning mob rule and maximum individual freedom). Every administration or regime falls somewhere among that triangle depending on their policies.
      Another option is the 2D political compass with left/right making one axis, and freedom/authoritarianism making the other.

      Regardless, the point of the comic is to show the centrist “fence sitter” criticizes both extremes and declares himself the more enlightened one, but when faced with a pressing situation and asked his opinion the centrist always sides with the dominant and popular belief, which nowadays is the leftist belief.

    They are far from similar goal wise, but they are both faggots

    No, more like horsesh*t hypothesis.
