Left-wing protests has become a common occurrence. Any provocative tweet made by Trump, or reported action taken by the administration, sparks
widespread protests. I believe it's time to create a classification scale to the severity of each protest/uprising, kind of like hurricanes and
tornadoes. I have been pondering a scaled system similar to the weather phenomenon, Category 0 - 5, of course there is always room for revision like
Here is the scale:
Category 0: These are the typical, most common left-wing protest. Mostly peaceful, little to no property damage, little to no assaults or physical
injury, and little to no arrests made. The worst a person will see from this type of protest is maybe some harsh words spoken and/or yelled, nudity,
Category 1: This is the most common category of liberal protest that sees violence. There are 3 or more assaults, thousands of dollars in property
damage, and/or at least 5 arrests made. It is typically isolated to a small portion of the protest group as whole.
Category 2: Now we are getting into the danger zone, you probably wouldn't want to bring your kids out to a category 2 left-wing protest. Up to $1
million in property damage, riot police being assaulted, pedestrians being assaulted, and/or at least 1 death. The violent group is slightly larger
than a category 1, and the peaceful protesters involved are complicit or supportive of the actions. An example of a Category 2 would be the Berkeley
Category 3: These are rare, but have happened more often in recent years. Millions in property damage, scores of injured, scores of arrests.
National Guard is called in, curfews implemented, etc. One of the more famous Category 3's is the Ferguson 'protests' a couple years ago.
Category 4: I don't think we've had a category 4 left-wing protest in recent decades. This is essentially shifting into the full-scale
insurrection, not only is National Guard called in, but the entire area/city has to be cordoned off, check-points, constitutional rights revoked.
Some left-wing death squads form, but this left-wing event is limited geographically.
Category 5: Never will happen, but it should be on the scale for reference. This is full on Communist revolution, left-wing death squads nationwide,
etc. Portions of the country lost. Death toll would be getting into the hundreds of thousands. Of course, this is every violent left-wing
anarchists dream, but they can keep on dreaming.
Anyways, just a thought. I would like to see a weekly forecast, and also an explanation for the possible catalyst (usually something Trump says, or a
cop shooting a criminal).
I believe there was a Category 3 left-wing protest in Sweden, not sure it could just be a Cat 2.
