By  Robert Kraychik

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.
