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

Antifa Experiences The Midwest

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.

So there was one fake Tweet?
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.

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?

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

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’

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.

I'm sorry....what? Have you not been paying attention?

Wait...you just said, "there were no certain identifications of Antifa". So, by your own statement, Antifa (which *isn't* an organization, BTW) wasn't part of whatever riots you're referring to.

I'm not implying anything. You said, "It's also true that they did show up at some locations where they were expected and indulged in significant violence." But you have provided no evidence or facts to back that up except *three* people being a "mob."

Yeah - especially when it's white people doing it. Quite interesting the story you link to has a picture of a Black man (for no apparent reason) but the facts show the video of the graffiti and...surprise, surprise, it's a white guy spray painting the mayor's house. Now, why would you initial source use such an inflammatory and false image? Hmmm...I wonder...what ever could be the reason?

White, black, red, yellow, brown, purple with orange polka dots, doesn't matter. Skin colour isn't the issue here.

All these Progs are in support of the burning, looting, murder, etc., until it hits their back yard. Or, in this instance, front yard. Suddenly the tune changes.

The irony is delicious.

More than 1,500 buildings, many black-owned businesses, damaged in Twin Cities area as violence continues

Black lives matter? Really? Well, as the city officials noted, the damage was almost all in “minority communities.” This disproportionately affects black business owners and consumers alike. It will permanently run down property values and, in the long run, ensure that there is no investment in these neighborhoods.

This is a reflection of what is happening in the rampant anarchy and the war on cops. The same way more black people become victims of crime when the police are forced to cower in their stations, more black businesses are destroyed and the quality of minority neighborhoods plummets thanks to the hands-off approach of cops.

In another lifetime I drove freight truck. No way in hell I'm entering a "No Cops" zone.

Poll: 79% of Truck Drivers Won’t Deliver to Cities That Defund Police – ‘My Life Matters’

A recent poll revealed that 79% of truck drivers that responded said they would not deliver products to cities that defund or disband their police departments.

In the CDL Life poll, a news organization aimed specifically at truckers, the group asked truck drivers, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”

Seventy-nine percent of 1,283 respondents said they would not pick up/deliver in cities that had disbanded or defunded their police departments.

No, I said few people were arrested anywhere, not that antifa adherents were not involved in violence or riots.

Did I call Antifa an organization?

Wait...you just said, "there were no certain identifications of Antifa". So, by your own statement, Antifa (which *isn't* an organization, BTW) wasn't part of whatever riots you're referring to.

LMAO It's *really* hard to take you seriously when all the "news" articles you post are from suspect far-right "sources". Little window into your feelings on the matters under discussion. And, that being said, I don't need to waste any further time trying to get facts out of or into you. You're not interested. You've got your own reality and nothing I or anyone else says is going to change that.

Have a nice day.

If you had read the article, you would see that you were triggered by a poll conducted by a commercial trucking news magazine, not a "far right source":

Let me get this correct...

Rather than discuss the issue, you write off the source as out of hand, with no, zero, empirical evidence of your own to back up your claim. Is that it?

If that's what passes for reasoned debate in your world, you're welcome to it.

As far as my position on this Charlie Foxtrot, yes, it's probably as clear as yours. The difference between you and I is that I'm more than willing to be convinced otherwise. Present a thoughtful, well-reasoned argument with empirical evidence to back it up & I'll listen to it.

Pout about far-right news sources, pick up your ball & sneak home, well, you've just relegated yourself to the ash pile of lefties on these boards who are unable to make their point in an even argument.

One more thing: if my sources are as weak and erroneous as you claim them to be, it should be with relative ease that you dismantle my argument. Yet you left... ;)
