No.

I would never suggest shooting the police.

I would only suggest ever using a firearm if your life or those that you care about were in immediate danger.


Regardless, as long as these confrontations continue, people will get hurt and eventually, someone will die.

The fact that some of you are ok with any type of device being thrown into a crowd shows that the country has lost it #.

This happens ALL the time. A 'conservative' group gets a permit. The 'liberal' group does not. The police cancel the 'conservative' group because of protesting. 2nd Amendment squashed.

Liberal group attacks conservative group. Media calls conservatives whiners. Liberals are heroes.

Liberals win.



Being antifascist means you only allow speech you approve of, and violently squash all other forms.

Im just thankful that the kids participating with Antifa seem to be vegans and the sickly. None of them could pass for a linebacker, even on a 6 man team.

Yeah I didn't think so..

Seems like it's a lot of just these two groups trolling each other,
I don't think either one gives a rat's patootie about Free speech.

I don't know.

If someone tosses a bomb at someone, I might suggest shooting them.

They won't be tossing bombs any more that way.



It was the cops with the big-bangs.
you're not suggesting....?

You’re going to suggest that was a flash bang? Police are really cheaping out these days that was a firework employed as a weapon.

The problem is most of these protests are planned to be totally non-violent and they all start out that way until the ANTIFA groups show up too. Not too many organizations on the left even identify with ANTIFA who by their own words are a far left militant group that will use violence at any point. They are a mix of anarchists, communists and socialists that label anyone not aligned to them as Fascist, so I don't really label them as a part of what we call the left as they bring very extreme views with their violence.

lol
No, there a lot of mini-bangs in the longer vids. Firecrackers and such.
But there are bigger bangs that made people flinch too.
I think the are probably the ones the police said they were using.
I'll have to watch the vids again, but I think some of the louder bangs occurred during the video
where you can also see them firing the rubber bullets.


The louder one is at 2:53 in this vid.

The 4th is a pond us with fireworks galore on every street corner. I'm thinking what was thrown was what you would typically launch out of a mortar, but was just thrown in the middle of the crowd.

In other videos where you can see the the firework go off there’s no doubt it’s a firework, flash bangs don’t give off that much smoke or the red bursts...

I’ve been saying it was a firework mortar shell... Throwing that in the middle of a crowd is not cool no matter who did it.

ive seen poor mans hand grenades made that way ,one of my former tennants buddies would dip the mortar round in superglue and dip them in glass and shrapnel(usually bbs) and in his case at least use them to scare away raccoons and skunks from his chicken coop

I wouldn't consider them the same part of the left that post anti Trumps threads every 2 minutes on every social media outlet on the planet.

I would place them in the same group as the KKK. Not the 1950's KKK who were lynching people but the modern KKK. A bunch of drunk idiots drinking coor's lights shooting guns in their back yards in the mountains of xxxxx who occasionally do something stupid or violent.

either way they can be dangerous although at this point in time I think Antifa has proven to be more willing to attack people in their safe havens where they know the left leaning government will protect them

They have no point, so they're falling back on calling people "racist", as usual.

I agree, and what both groups have in common is the need to blame others for their own failures. I'm pretty sure these were the 99%ers under Obama too.

Today under Trump ANTIFA is the most dangerous, for the next President, who knows, but in all these cases it really comes down to numbers. There are 6000 KKK across America and so not really something to be concern about. If ANTIFA grows to 2 million then we all have problems no matter which side of the aisle you are on.

I am hoping the only way you are going to find two million protesters from either side to spend enough time to actually battle each other, will be on MSM (Photoshop), on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Going face to face, I don't think the 75% that opted out of the last election, the average American, has time for that.

The Battle Of Portland

Proud Boys 1
Antifa 0

There are also a LOT of explosions...once ANY type of explosive is used it should be open season to 'protect yourself'.

What happens when we have 4 AntiFa dead during a protest?

Nothing...HRC is not in office.
