Ahhh ok the so are those right wing groups not terrorist then

Also you don’t define terrorism in the dictionary you use the law of the land so feel free to refer to the patriot act.

Furthermore the state department keeps a list of terrorist organisations that are open to the public and Antifa is not on the list.

Again it is your opinion not a fact that the are a terrorist group


Anyone who uses violence to pursue a political goal is a terrorist, by definition. Definitions are facts. You can't change the fact that their actions meet the definition of terrorism. Whether the US government designates you a terrorist organization doesn't change the definitions of words. If a right-winger uses violence to pursue a political goal, he's a terrorist by definition too.

Looks like a bunch of idiots on all sides,


Funny when Trump said that it was so racist..


I had the same reaction. I'm curious what his stance on Charlottesville is.

I live in Portland. Most of these "protesters" aren't even from Oregon.

Do you know much about this Patriot Prayer group?

Everything I find suggests that they mostly exist to stage troll rallies (which is of course, within their First Amendment rights.)

I read the same thing about ISIS. They were mostly not from the areas they were destroying.

LOL I think its funny that he actually said " there was idiots on both sides" Its like he is Trump himself.

I swear they forget about their outrage as soon as CNN tells them its time to be mad about something else.

A fight takes 2 parties. No matter how its politicized.

Unless we are the folks in downtown protests instigating altercation im unsure why wed defend any of it.

I saw no fight until someone threw an IED. At that point you can defend the targets of said IED.

what would have happened had Antifa respected their lawful right to assemble? would there have been violence?

What is antifa? How do you know that was them? How do you know who actually started it?

You have a video snippet. And a rather jerky knee.

Who threw it? Can you identify the source?

Are they affiluated with the people getting beat down afterwards? How do you know?

I have seen some of the beatings Antifa members took. Truly beautiful to behold and so well deserved.

Well you see it drop from the sky and I am pretty sure they did not throw it at themselves.

if you are looking for more context check this video out you can clearly see who's throwing things and instigating violence

pretty loud explosion for a small smoke bomb huh?

looks to me like the people who were getting bombed finally had enough, looks like the antifa crowd are clearly marked with black regalia and were attacking them with rocks and other projectiles for a while before they finally responded

for sure looks like the other group came prepared for violence though, not sure what that means

apparently the "proud boys" form the front line to protect the other protester's not sure who they are

here is another perspective you can see the prayer people waving flags while having various objects thrown at them, the police respond with what look like pepper spray at the group throwing projectiles

There is good and bad on both sides, pretending thats not the case is just wilful ignorance.


That sounds so familiar. Where have I heard that before?

Agreed.

But I saw the defenders wearing motorcycle helmets and wielding baseball bats.

They must of planned ahead to 'defend' themselves.
