Organized terror group vs unorganized protest group


The protest group was organized and had weapons. You can clearly see them use the flag poles they carry as weapons plus many of them are wearing helmets.
Why wear helmets if your not expecting a fight?

Again I am not defending the actions of antifia but lets get the facts straight.


Some. Key word. Hmmm Antifa, lets see, Home made Riot shields, make shift body armor, goggles or glasses, all have masks, All have some sort of head gear or helmets, some have firearms and oh yeah smoke grenades.

Like I said. Organized militant group vs unorganized protest group with a few agitators... You pick which side would be pushing more????

Pretty sure the P.P. groups are political trolls.
That's their purpose, to provoke a reaction, to start a fight.
Pick an area of opposition, and Hold a rally for no purpose
other than...political trolling for a reaction.
simple!

Antifa?
still not even sure what they are...loosely organized anti-nazi group apparently.
Why would they be a a P.P. Rally?
makes no sense to me.

It's NOT WRONG to defend yourself when you are attacked with explosive devices... Those people should've gotten shot. They are on a road to getting #ED up beyond belief. They do not know what they are starting.


Jaden


Yeah defend yourself!

I am not saying that you shouldn't but lets not pretend that the guys on the right didn't turn up ready for a fight and if pervious incidents are anything to go by they were probably looking for one.

I really don't want to be associated with antifa, the use of violence for making political points is wrong.

so why are you defending either of these sides, this is not what peaceful politics should look like in a 2018's America, everyone right and left should be denouncing the actions of all of these morons who turn up to protests looking for a fight.

They threw a smoke bomb! You made it sound like a hand grenade! LOL

From what I read, several ANTIFA scum were arrested BEFORE the parade due to having weapons. Cops called it off when projectiles started getting tossed. I gotta agree with the cops for stopping it before it got too far out of hand. I am not sure who this other group is...are they extremist? None of them was arrested, so they weren't breaking any laws.

That was a fairly good size firework just because it’s flash powder doesn’t mean it can’t be employed as a weapon. I don’t think you would appreciate having one thrown into a crowd you were in. The acts violence have to stop or this is going to spiral much farther out of control than either side wants.

Inciting a riot is pretty illegal as is using fireworks as a weapon, no one being arrested does not equal legality.

A few years ago when they first started talking about the American Terrorist, even us conspiracy theorist nut cases, didn't know what they were talking about and thought it a weak gambit.


ahhhh home grown terrorism, yeah I remember that it was a big topic after the patriot act and for years after the patriot act

I think you're right they want things to get out of hand

If that is true then organizing protests may have to be vetted more thoroughly now because of this kind of sensless vitrol

could be true, don't know but if they do it lawfully and peacefully we can just ignore them right?? there's all kinds of rally's that go on

I wonder... I wonder if both of these organizations get their funding from the same place.. hmm haven't looked into it

anarchy as its original intention "No Rulers/Rules" meaning, no rulers as far as people, society, civilisation, domestication, etc

so-called "American anarchy, or anarchism" is an extremely watered down, leftist political version of what it was,

OF course they're expecting a fight... DUH!!! Antifa has started # EVERYWHERE they go.

I'm prepared for a fight every time I leave the house. I'm not looking for one, but I'm prepared for it, and if I'm going to somewhere I expect to be attacked, you bet your ass I'm going to be armed.

Being prepared for a fight does NOT make you a bad guy, it makes you prepared to DEAL with bad guys...DUH!!!!

Even if this was just a smoke bomb as you claim, when the Branch Davidians had siege laid upon there compound the smoke grenades that caused the inferno, they were not weapons eh?

That's idiotic on it's face. There can be no such thing. When there is no rule, no agreed upon set of rules, you STILL have rule. It's called he with the most guns and influence wins and whoever that is, against you or for you, he will be ruling.

So again, just as with socialism that little problem of human nature creeps in and makes it impossible to implement in any non-fantasy reality.

it's literally called a smoke bomb because it's a powerful explosive device, this perspective is not grounded in reality it's nonsensical and totally lacking in intelligence, that position cannot be defending and it's probably not worth the time to argue it

anyone with any sense of logic knows reading that how ridiculous it sounds

The thing is its fair to call out antifa.

The problem seems to be that members on the right are totally unprepared to even acknowledge that some of the blame may lie with their peers.

How can we expect any meaningful dialogue with people like that.

I gave up trying to reason with them long ago, better to just say your bit and leave it at that.
