Citizens step forward
So when politicians refuse to protect people from the roving gangs of antifa terrorists by telling the local police to stand down, regular folks step up and do the job, so the commies go after them in court!
Is anybody getting this?
Gee, I could have sworn there were 2 distinct sides to that mess. The antifa crowd and the KKK.
Exactly where were these "regular folks" you speak of?
How easily the closet democrat ignores the third and forth side.
I don't care if there were 6 sides, I didn't see any "regular folks" in the footage I saw. Just a bunch of lunatics with too much time on their hands.
Lunatics with clubs and pepper spray with malice of forethought.
Well stated, Rhody.
"Malice of forethought." I have to remember that one.
So now you are a psychiatrist capable of diagnosing every one of the people in that crowd from your throne, I mean armchair!
Fair enough, Spikey.
So, tell me, how exactly did you determine "regular folks" were in the crowd? Do you know anyone who was there, or anyone who would even consider being there? I don't.
Based on actual events of late, wherein one such event some white folks got together to speak about free speech, including several left leaners, and they had to be rescued in paddy wagons by the police as hundreds of antifa thugs accosted the 40-50 free speakers, it seems innevitable that this kind of attack, of which there were many to include several where the police were told to stand down, would eventually illicit people to come armed and ready to stand their ground against such thugs. What did they expect? Exactly this!!
If you cannot see the logic in that, GG, then I guess you just have to play the odds, the probabilities, if you will.
You get weaker by the day, my friend.
I'm not familiar with the event you mentioned. Nevertheless, I'd say the so-called "free speakers" were "thugs" too, assuming it's true. They knew there'd be violence, and they got what they came for.
Do you think anyone who attends these "events" leaves with a different opinion? So what's the point, besides shouting vulgarities and senseless violence. Nothing changes, and the divide between the sides grows wider. It's stupidity personified at the highest level. KKK, neo-nazis, antifa, white supremacists, free speakers...call them what you want, they are all thugs.
The demonstration was peaceful till Antifa showed up. They were also throwing rocks and bottles at the Police. The lawsuit is nonsense. Either side was no more innocent than the other. I do believe Antifa started the violence. The regular folks can be assured their right to free speech is still in tact.
There seems to be a lot you are not familiar with, GG.
Ohhh, good one-liner, Spikey. That seems to be your MO when your argument runs out of steam.
Now run along, and scour your right wingnut sites for your next mindless topic to post.
"So whats the point, besides shouting vulgarities and senseless violence." Sounds like Dem supporters at every Republican held event.

Political rallies are another example of wasted time and resources, IMO. What exactly do they accomplish? Do you know anyone who changed their political affiliation after attending a rally? Do rallies generate more votes for the candidate? Who comes home from a political rally and says, "gee, that was GREAT!!" ? Nobody I know.
I don't need to gather with like-minded crowds to re-affirm my political ideology. And I certainly have no desire to shout vulgarities at those who have different opinions. It all seems so infantile to me.
Gee, thanks, GG, honestly, I wasnt sure you would get it.
