After all, donations to candidates is considered free speech which certainly implies that people with more money have more free speech during elections. I guess it is easy to understand the violence when I remind myself that groups like this are interested in destroying the state entirely. I get so used to them being lumped in with liberals that I find it easy to forget sometimes.
    lol...well, that article was ripping on Liberals, so...hehe... Maybe we're not to blame?

    I think AntiFa is what you get when you overpromise and under-deliver for too long. These are not Nazi mouth breathers, they have a lot of intellectuals in their membership that are simply fed the **** up about how their country is being run, primarily because of the gap between what is promised and what is delivered. Lashing out is an immature behavior, and hopefully, provided they don't get themselves killed or locked up in the process, they come out of this with some *actual* solutions to the problems they are correctly identifying....when they grow up.

    In the meantime, it's a good provocation for the rest of you - the problems are real, or at least seem real enough to bear discussion, and if so, and if violence *isn't* the answer, then what do you do about it? Doing nothing gets you AntiFa, as history has clearly shown...sometimes pragmatism is the more dangerous course.

    You already know that's exactly what's going to happen. We've seen this song and dance play out across a dozen+ threads with the same results each time.

    Kinda hoping that since I'm not trying to say they are right that I won't rustle too many jimmies....hehehe... I know it probably will, but maybe there will be some good conversation mixed in. You can't get away with anything on DP without starting a **** storm these days, it would appear. Posting a boiled egg recipe could get controversial...hehe

    Re: AntiFa and Freedom of Speech from the Horse's Mouth

    Here is an interesting article that makes the case that Antifa is increasingly becoming a problem for the non-violent left-wing demonstrators.

    'Antifa' violence in Berkeley spurs soul-searching within leftist activist community - LA Times

    When it reaches an unacceptable point...and it will...those peaceful lefties will be forced to forget about asking Antifa to be nice and they'll have to just kick Antifa's ass to protect themselves. So it goes...

    You think that's a joke, but it was an accurate reflection of the Food forum until Militant Vegan finally got himself banned.

    And yet, as you guys fight each other, none of the problems get solved... Sometimes when I put my tinfoil thinking cap on, I can imagine a reality where the Nazis and AntiFa are both on the government payroll, to keep the rest of you pointing fingers at each other instead of holding your government accountable for the shady stuff they're engaged in.

    That's a really cruel thing to say about Nazis and Antifa, and I don't believe their behavior is anywhere near as bad as the **** vegans pull.
