I saw this earlier, pretty "fashy" of them if you ask me.
Last time a bunch of white boys in masks beat on PoC for who they voted for we called them the KKK.




Looks like a father and son. And even outnumbered and against shields and sticks it looks like the old man held his ground.

Source? And please don't link me to infowars or reddit or anything.

Antifa most certainly didn't have a permit and they rushed a police barricade. The mayor meanwhile is now calling for Antifa to be classified as a gang. Any Facebook related sympathies he had previously seem to have evaporated in the face of their escalating dickery.

It seems ANTIFA was worried about folks forgetting about the group's notoriety.

Obviously, the way forward is to pressure government and law enforcement to advance to stricter methods regarding mobsters in Antifa apparel, or get people into power who will.

Control of State resources is the only legitimate battlefield. Resorting to unlawful mob violence is the refuge of wrongful bandits who can't hope to win a battle of minds & hearts.

Fort worth had a peace march recently. They chanted "love, not hate" I saw the newspaper article online and commented, "if you were real Americans, you would chant 'love and hate, not crime'" It got deleted. We need to start playing these peoples' game. Write your congressman and senator saying you want anti discrimination laws. The media has freedom of the press, but some how has the right to discriminate what responses people can give to their news. When political candidates run ads in the media, those sources have to give equal opportunity to both sides. Why doesn't this way of thinking extend to us, the everyday citizen? Ask your senator and congressman that question.

Arreguin defended the police for allowing Antifa to jump the barricades Sunday, saying “the actions taken by the police were necessary to deescalate and prevent further violence from taking place.” How is allowing a mob with weapons to attack unarmed people deescalating anything? (they made sure the right had no weapons, then allowed armed Antifa to sworm in and attack them.. This is what Arreguin praised the police for doing. Its what he wanted.

Berkeley mayor Jesse Arreguin is now calling on the University of California Berkeley to cancel “Free Speech Week,” an event planned for late September in which a conservative campus group called Berkeley Patriot is inviting controversial speakers, including former Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, to speak.
The mayor is using this to stop all the free speech advents in the future. This was a ploy to prevent the right from being able to speak out.

There are some people coming out to these protests/counter protests looking for a fight. It happens on both sides. Every time one side gets caught, the other uses it as an excuse to demonize the opposition. It's getting old.

I'm not really sure why the right keeps protesting in liberal areas though. You guys are getting everything you want, and if you aren't you have only your own party to blame.

That didn't actually answer my question you're just going further into conspiracy territory.

Berkeley has been the site of HOW many riots now? I don't think its beyond the pale for the mayor to ask to cancel what will without question be yet another riot. You don't invite Milo and Ann Coultier to speak on the nuances of free speech. You invite them to provoke shit. Which is exactly what they do for a living and exactly what will happen.

Yes, its free speech, but lets not pretend there's anything noble about it or anything noble about the intentions of the group inviting said speakers. They know EXACTLY what will happen by inviting them. Just because its free speech it doesn't absolve them of responsibility for the consequences. They know they're pouring gasoline on a fire.

Oh my ... spiritual-/non-spiritual religions, be it about some gods, norms, worths, fictional regulations, states, form of governing ... all just figments, used by humans in their intersubjective web.
Instead of freeing oneself from such cultural things, humans tend to stay slaves to their own figments for another 3000 years or so.

Just watch some anime

Pah, this would never happen in my America...

Where we just copy all of Finland's laws, and we turn over the entire Military Budget to Anime creators so they can make more/better anime. Thoughts?

I actually broke down and watched a few youtubes of Milo the other day... not really sure what the fuss is about other then he seems to really dislike the political Islam(AKA ISIS). However I only watched a few videos and they could very well have been mild idk.

Oddly enough we all know by now what will happen by inviting or allowing ANTIFA to show up, yet nobody seems to throw a temper tantrum. I am not saying your wrong I am just saying it frustrates me to no end the one sided "Blame game" each media outlet likes to play. MSNBC says Milo is the worst person in the world, Fox news says BLM and Antifa are the worst people ever. Lets all just be honest and say they are all potentially(groups are a bit harder to generalize about) equally bad.
