With all due respect...
Looking at this from a different perspective, this reminds me of the Salem witch hunts. It also reminds me of the Nazi invasion of different countries, with Cap's team being akin to the Jews, hunted down and imprisoned.
There was an old saying;
"First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Pastor Martin Niemöller"

Whose side am i on, even though i consider myself a conservative, i was on Cap's side. I have this thing for Freedom.(personal opinion)

I wouldn't side with Communists OR Nazis. Capt. America over-reacted, adn realised he should have done it differently in the end.
