    The real point, which you missed, was that for all the screaming about tolerance, these people are so intolerant, not just of really bad people, like real Nazis, but people who simply disagree with them. Lets not confuse them screaming Nazi at people with those people actually being Nazis.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    I'll just offer this, the activities of the so-called AntiFa and SJWs remind me of the stories my grandfather would tell us about the rise of Fascism in Italy when he was growing up there. The family emigrated to the US in 1927 when he was 16.

    He'd tell us stories of the protests and street fights between the Leftist factions, the Communists (Labor/International Socialists) and the Fascists (Corporatist/National Socialists). Just as we saw in the "Occupy" faction, there were Nihilists/Anarchists, too. The Right in those days were the supporters of the Monarchy and Church.

    All of them have merged, including the Democratic Party, into one giant leftwing cluster####.

    Long past time to get rid of them all.

    Why mention the firearms in the article at all? What is the point if not to highlight the fact that these protesters were armed?

    I didn’t see any assaults in the videos.

    Hey dumbass. You chose which part you quoted thereby HIGHLIGHTING that part of the story. You could have just as easily quoted the part where the author left of his own accord unharmed, but you didn’t.

    .
    Because seeing protesters with firearms isn't the norm, on either side. Noting it isnt the same as highlighting it, unless you consider that everything in the article is highlighting it, I suppose. I didn't use the term assault, although I'm pretty sure boxing him in against the barricades, which you can see happening at 30 seconds in the first video and refusing to let him leave is not legal. He tries to go in all directions and they refuse to let him pass.

    I note you didn't mention the death threat, however.

    But again, getting down in the details that this person had done nothing, not even disagreed with them. But because someone in the mob (because this is how mobs work) accused him of things, the supposedly pro-gay, pro-minority protesters, there to decry supposed fascists who allegedly hate gays and minorities, spent 20 minutes harassing a gay asian guy. Now that's pretty funny.

    The author did not mention that the 3%ers were armed. Why not?


    If he wasn’t assaulted what is the problem? I don’t see anything in the video that indicates he couldn’t leave if he wanted. The facts that the police suggested he should leave and that he eventually left unharmed indicted he was not being detained by the crowd.

    I did not hear any death threats, but I didn’t watch all of the videos in their entirety. If actual death threats were made the suspects should be prosecuted
