Mitt Romney Tweets Support For Antifa

"One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry."

Tuesday saw Mitt Romney express support for "Antifa," "Black Lives Matter," and assorted neo-Marxist and Democrat-aligned agitation groups via Twitter:

""Antifa and the "Black Lives Matter" regularly describe themselves as "anti-fascist" and "anti-racist," a self-description Romney has accepted and forwarded.

Romney's view is ubiquitous across the left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media; Tuesday's presser with President Donald Trump saw MSNBC's Hallie Jackson ask Trump about moral comparisons between white nationalists and their neo-Marxist detractors:

Are you putting what you're calling the "alt-left" and white supremacists on the same moral plane?

Watch's Jackson's question to Trump and the president's response below.

For days, left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets have framed neo-Marxist agitators as moral actors resisting racism and other bigotries displayed by white nationalists. CNN's Jake Tapper, for instance, described them as "counter-demonstrators" without any qualifiers.
