Jonathan Greenblatt CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) told MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts on Sunday that the idea of a violent alt-left is a right-wing myth and that there is no equivalency between the violent hate groups of the right and the people who resist them.

In response to President Donald Trumps assertion that there are fine people on both sides of the neo-Nazi question, Greenblatt said, There are no fine people among the ranks of Nazis. Then they tried to divert the conversation to the quote-unquote alt-left, but look, there is no comparable side on the left to the alt-right.'

The alt-right, he said, are white supremacists who amass with an idea of pushing a nationalist agenda that pushes out minorities based on how you pray, who you love or where youre from. So, its really not comparable.
