How comes that it´s not the far right / neo-nazis in Germany who have to set people and stuff on fire to "make a point", yet antifa does this on a yearly basis ever may?

There was a RECENT thread about "Antifa Twitter accounts" that many here suspected of being fake. It turns out??? That is probably true.
The online campaign is using fake Antifa (an umbrella term for anti-fascist protestors) Twitter accounts to claim anti-fascists promote physically abusing women who support US President Donald Trump or white supremacy.
Researcher Eliot Higgins of website Bellingcat found evidence that the campaign is being orchestrated on internet messageboard 4Chan by far-right sympathisers.
FAKE pictures and memes are being intentionally created and spread as part of a DISINFO campaign...
Eliot Higgins, who traced evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria, found evidence the anti-Antifa campaign was organised on 4Chan, which has a reputation for acting as a meeting place for alt-right groups, and runs a "politically incorrect" board with extreme racist and homophobic comments.
Mr Higgins posted a screenshot of a call to action on the message board, which encouraged far-right sympathisers to search online for images of domestic violence, add their own slogan such as "She deserves it for being a Nazi," then post them on social media using pre-determined hashtags.
Don't believe EVERYTHING you see on social media, just because it supports what you want to believe...

I live in an arabic-muslim dominated part of a big city and it aint Cologne.
The destruction of property has a few upsides though. First, there would be the creation of awareness. I'd doubt the G20 protests would have been worth a report if they remained peaceful, except for the Walking Dead maybe.
Second, it's worth to think about all the ressources used to produce said property (cars, flatscreens, etc) in a manner that is in direct opposition to our alleged western values. From the mining in horrific circumstances to the suicidal industrial centers of production and the import with other means of pollution, that's the glory of international trade and "free markets" right there.
I couldn't care less about a few broken windows and looted shops, most of them have an insurance to cover the losses.
What kind of damage are we talking about then?
Also, I've read a few statement from the owners of said looted shops and they were mostly concerned about the SWAT teams pointing MPs at residents, not about a few adrenalin junks looting shops.

The people of Carlottsville do not do whatever they feel like doing. They also have to follow the law.
The city failed to keep law and order. They are partially responsible for that girl's death.

There are too many sides of the thing ,never mind the many sides to each side . Its pretty hard to pick a side in this so taking the safe side of not going with what the MSM/pundits and other shills say seems a pretty safe bet . I mean this whole war was started over little hands and "wire tapped " stuff to begin with . and here we are and my guess is its only going to get worse because every time stupid doubles down it gets stupider . have fun with that ,because I don,t need or want to go there .
Because most insurances don´t pay up for vandalism! Of course you are unaware of that because you probably never owned something worth insuring. Also, insurance for vandalism costs extra fees.
Traumatized people who almost suffocated, burned to death or have relatives that died, of course isn´t worth thinking about.
I'm aware of a few hundret injured police men and that's it, not to mention the hundrets of injured protesters...
