    ANd, if I ignore teh spin, and look at the actions and the quote in the original context, you are wrong.

    What was that Mayor's action?

    A. Aiding Antifa by allowing them to control the streets. Allowing them to terrorize motorists. Allowing them to impede the public. Allowing them to damage private property.



    Did you see that cop just sitting there watching? That's on orders from that Antifa-loving Mayor Wheeler.

    Whatever the mayor ordered or not says nothing about how he feels about Antifa. It only shows how he handled that particular situation. Maybe he didn't want to escalate it into another police shooting people down on the streets.

    Re: It's not wrong to tell people they're wrong

    Unbelievable.
    I am not Antifa, so far nobody else on this thread is Antifa or supports Antifa, I've STARTED DP discussion threads where I've dissed Antifa, I've said numerous times that they're parasites that leech onto convenient leaderless movements but who attack those same movements when they feel the need, I've asked Mycroft to name some DP members who support Antifa and he came up empty and wouldn't respond, but I swear to God, it's like he works for those guys who call you up at all hours...

    Except at least the auto warranty spammers don't call violent Nazi stormtroopers "free speech".

    On the one hand, you find a rational and calm collection of thinkers. On the other, you find women.
