Burning, Looting & Murder

I jes' luvs it when a cold slap of reality lands upside their heads...

Antifa Experiences The Midwest

Quote:
Some town in Western N.Dakota I think. Got wind Antifa and worse were going to cause trouble.

A whole bunch of locals, veterans, and bikers, coordinating with the police, did full load out kit (rifles, pistols, body armour, etc.) This included night vision gear, drones, and guys posted to rooftops. Some plain clothes in cafes and such gathering Intel & photos.

Whenever an Antifa cell would case a place and get ready to hit it, the militia guys would come out of the shadows to talk… and Antifa would run off. In one case 2 Antifa with “rifles” were suddenly looking at 2 militia guys (more in the shadows with IR)… turns out their rifles were airsoft guns. Those LARPer Antifa were very lucky the locals were very experienced at gun identification ’cause the locals had the real deal.

"Antifa rumors spread on local social media with no evidence"

"False rumors that antifa is organizing bus rides to take protesters into white neighborhoods and loot homes have gone viral in recent days on digital neighborhood platforms and in group texts throughout the U.S."

It doesn't take very much to send these people into a frenzy.

"When Antifa Hysteria Sweeps America"

"So early this month as a small group of local residents planned a peaceful “Black Lives Matter” protest in Coquille, word raced around that three busloads of antifa activists were headed to Coquille to bust up the town.

"A sheriff from a nearby county, John Ward, warned citizens in a public Facebook post of rumors that the anti-fascists could rampage into his area as well.

"Of course, no rampaging anarchists ever showed up."

It's true that Antifa mobs did not show up at some places they were expected. It's also true that they did show up at some locations where they were expected and indulged in significant violence.

Please back that up. No Google News search for "anitfa mobs" shows any information of the sort.

Here's one:
Quote:
Three people have been arrested for looting, burglarizing and damaging property at an Austin Target store, according to the FBI.

The three individuals are known members of the anti-government group ANTIFA, FBI officials said.

LMAO "Three people have been arrested..." That's what you define as a "mob"?

You're not going to find a lot of arrest records, because police were ordered to stand down during the riots. The feds arrested about 85 people out of thousands, among which there were no certain identifications of Antifa. Are you implying that Antifa wasn't part of the violence?

Curious how quickly the cold slap of reality changes "freedom fighters" into "domestic terrorists".

Olympia Mayor Turns On Protesters After Home Vandalized, Now Calls Them ‘Domestic Terrorism’

Quote:
A Washington state mayor came out in support of the Black Lives Matter protesters and had no problem with what they were doing.

She backed them so much she would not even impose a curfew so as to stop the bad actors from damaging property in the night.

Now, after her home was vandalized by protesters, she is singing a different tune.
