    Surprise, surprise, surprise!

    I wonder if Mitch, Johnnie and Lyndsay got the memo? I believe they're all protected for the next 4 years or so!

    I though it was interesting that anti-fa thugs were told by their handlers not to record their violence on cell phones. i.e. they don't want any evidence of their group's guilt.

    They are attacking anyone making a video, regardless of what side they are on. A young "former" professor is finding out the hard way, that with enough video at an event, you can be doxxed even with a mask on during the violent parts.

    It's about getting away with it.

    Maybe we need to have a law where deadly force is authorized against masked marauders, no distance requirement. Sniper overwatch would stop this quickly.

    Back in the day, I would have loved to have gotten a half dozen of my fellow dojo rats together and blended into the crowd with my black mask and hoody. A quick rear naked choke here and a kidney punch there and these punks would be begging for their mommys. And we'd just fade back into the crowd; their crowd.
    I would love to see a sonic cannon, heat ray, or a water cannon peel one of these crowds apart. It'd be like Moses parting the red sea.

    There will be more violence until they are met with violence.

    None of those work as well as a 7.62 mini-gun.

    I don't want to advocate it. So, I promote the idea of jailing them one by one and giving them stiff sentences. If they need to be met with violence, think of the level of preparedness that our National Guard has with veterans schooled in house clearing and anti insurgency techniques. Never has a military been as prepared as ours is for urban combat.
    I know. But, I don't want to make some loser into a martyr that they can all gather around.

    This spiral of violence is all part of puppet master George Soros plan to make America less free.
    If violence is met with martial law, then it will bolster the Anti-Fa claims that they actually are fighting something.

    So what's the plan? Soros' plan.

    What is his actual goal and how will he achieve it?

    He has his Antifa attacking President Trump supporters, conservatives, white supremacists, and just about anyone and anything, with the support of the media, politicians, police chiefs and police officers.

    OK phase one complete. On to phase two, what is phase two?

    Hire counter protesters, violent counter protesters claiming to be, oh I don't know maybe " the young republicans" or "conservatives for Trump" or maybe even " NRA for Free Speech",with real weapons instead bats at bike locks? Real weapons with real bullets.

    What then?

    Escalation.
    Breakdown of social order.
    Suspension of constitution.
    Fall of democracy.
    Rise of socialism/communism.
    Leaving Soros and his minions in control.

    “This is food for the adversary,” said sociologist Todd Gitlin, a founder of Students for a Democratic Society, which organized the first national protests against the Vietnam War. He pointed out that violent acts committed by a few will almost always hijack the narrative of the entire protest, and that it is happening now should be no surprise.

    Only if the violent acts are from the so-called right ...... when the violent acts are from the left, as they almost always are currently, the mainstream media is conspicuously silent.

    Most importantly, Soros must to be removed from the equation, ala Hoffa. That takes away the money.

    Having a police force is useless when there are democRAT mayors who side with the violent protestors and order their police chiefs to do nothing.

    Having a police force is useless when there are democRAT police chiefs who side with the violent protestors and order their officers to do nothing.

    Arresting the violent protestors is a waste of time and tax payer money when you have democRAT district attorneys who side with the violent protestors and refuse to file the cases.

    Arresting these idiots won't do any good as long as there are democRAT judges who refuse to hand down long jail sentences.

    Bottom line: When the law enforcement system REFUSES to do it's job and protect the public and/or the public's property, it's up to the public to handle the situation.

    Oh, I don't know. Why don't you tell us?

    So what are we suppose to do? Just sit around and watch these democRATs destroy property and injure innocent people?

    Constant demonstrations.
    Eventual violence between both sides.
    Police hampered by superiors.
    DA' s/SA's unwilling to prosecute.
    Judges unwilling to sentence.
    Public outraged and demand change and will accept and give up anything to quiet things down.
    Soros and minions insist they have the answer for the good of the community.
    Result: socialism/communism/globalism.
