Black bloc did what campus should have

There’s a petition circulating that would have me declared a domestic terrorist.

On the afternoon of Feb. 1, a few friends and I met up with many other small groups of friends. We gathered off campus, distributed flags, wrote the National Lawyers Guild number on each others’ arms and helped each other make sure our faces were properly covered. Then we started marching.

If you were in the crowd on Sproul Plaza that night, the antifa might have appeared to be a homogenous mass of agents of chaos descending on your “resistance dance party.” This is understandable. Black bloc tactics are primarily designed to protect the identities of the individuals in the bloc from doxxing, surveillance footage and being singled out for arrest. You couldn’t tell who was behind those masks, and that’s the point.

But don’t get it twisted. We were not, as the news, the chancellor and concerned progressives have alleged, “unaffiliated white anarchists.” Behind those bandanas and black T-shirts were the faces of your fellow UC Berkeley and Berkeley City College students, of women, of people of color, of queer and trans people.

The bloc was made up of people with the most to fight for and the most to lose.

Now, personally, I prefer to attend protests in cocktail dresses and eyeliner. But after the reception of my last piece, that wasn’t an option.

Though the worst a Breitbart “reporter” could muster was misgendering me, trending on Breitbart is not an experience I can recommend. I received many colorful threats to my life, but no credible ones. Others who tango with Milo Yiannopoulos’ fans haven’t been so lucky.

So when I went out to make good on my promise to revoke Yiannopoulos’ gay card, I wore black and covered my face.

To those who defend free speech: I spent a semester in this very newspaper yelling about Grindr hookups and advocating rioting. My constitutional right to be outrageous and offensive in the press is very precious to me. But when I exercised my freedom of speech and called Yiannopoulos a pathetic motherfucker with ugly roots, many liberals told me I should be quiet and ignore him, and all his fans told me they were going to kill me. I expect this will happen again.

Unlike Yiannopoulos and his friends, I don’t harass people for being trans or Muslim or undocumented. I don’t doxx people for disagreeing with me. I also don’t have police on call to shoot tear gas and rubber bullets at people who think I shouldn’t talk. But go on, tell me that I killed the Free Speech Movement.

To those who hate Yiannopoulos and the alt-right but have a hard time condoning black bloc tactics and property damage, I understand that these tactics are extreme. But when you consider everything that activists already tried — when mass call-ins, faculty and student objections, letter-writing campaigns, numerous op-eds (including mine), union grievances and peaceful demonstrations don’t work, when the nonviolent tactics have been exhausted — what is left?

Of all the objections and cancellation requests presented to the administration, local government and local police, the only one that was listened to was the sound of shattering glass.

To the less radical bystanders who chanted “no more violence” (as though Amazon windows and floodlights have bones to break or blood to spill) and who turned out the next morning to help clean up — would you have been there to defend the undocumented students he would have outed? To defend me from the next round of doxxing and lukewarm death threats that is my reward for exercising my own First Amendment rights? Will you chant No More Violence at the Proud Boys and the skinheads? Will you get between a counter-protester and the target of their rage?

I understand that the chaotic reality of direct action frightened a lot of people. But at the University of Washington protest, a Yiannopoulos fan shot an unarmed anti-fascist organizer and walked free. Do broken windows frighten you more than bullets?

Antifa was there to protect UC Berkeley students when the administration was not. Within 15 minutes of the bloc’s arrival on Sproul Plaza, Yiannopoulos was being rushed from the building. These were not acts of violence.

They were acts of self defense.

And to Yiannopoulos and all your friends who invited you and hosted you and defended your “right” to speak: I recommend you learn your lesson.

Our shields are raised against you. No one will protect us? We will protect ourselves.

  • Attila Iskander – A Deplorable

    Jeff cooper wrote this about cops, specifically the ATF and DOJ turds who did the massacre at Waco.
    But it applies double to such as you

    “Already a couple of the faithful have sent in checks for a foundation memorial to the innocents who perished at the hands of the ninja at Waco … I have been criticized by referring to our federal masked men as ‘ninja’
    … Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view.”

    To man anyone doing violence behind a mask is a target
    Be they
    – ISIS
    – Antifa
    – or anything else.

        OK
        It’s a picture of 3 guys
        Oh and they’re wearing SOME camo.

        So ?

        Key phrase you seem to have missed
        “… A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target.”

        Don’t see any guns in the picture
        Dont see any signs that the are “… taking upon themselves to shed blood while concealing their identity ..”

        • Lee Clayton

          They’re border “militiamen”, looking to pick off some Mexicans. I doubt they’re packing slingshots.

          • Attila Iskander – A Deplorable

            Sure they are…
            “..border “militiamen”, looking to pick off some Mexicans..”

            And I don’t see any arms.
            Maybe they’ve got (biblical) slings like David against Goliath.

            .

            As usual, you’re so full of it, even the whites of your eyes are brown.

          • Lee Clayton
          • Attila Iskander – A Deplorable

            You’ve already been caught in lies with, for example:
            “..border “militiamen”, looking to pick off some Mexicans..”

            And no reports of “.. some Mexicans being picked off..”

            Stop digging.
            You’re deep enough

          • Lee Clayton

            Your guru claimed that masked, armed men deserve to be shot. Those redneck cowards with whom you share an ideology deserve, therefore to be shot.

          • Attila Iskander – A Deplorable

            No he did not make such a claim.
            You need to read more carefully..

            I even repeated it for you
            Key phrase you seem to have missed:
            “… A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target.”

            One more time
            Key phrase you seem to have missed
            “… A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity …”

            Just because someone is armed, does NOT AUTOMATICALLY mean that they intend to shed blood.
            In fact, most people who carry, hope to god, they never even have to draw, not to mention putl the trigger.
            The same is true for the great majority of police and military.

            I hunt Wild Turkey with both shotgun and archery.
            In both cases, I camo up and even cover my face, because Turkeys are very wily critters who are sensitive to the facial features in the wild.
            But doing so, does NOT trigger Cooper’s definition.
            Just like wearing camo and covering your face in an observation blind does, even though you may be armed.
            And war is a totally different ball of wax as well.

            I don’t think Cooper had a problem with snipers and ghillie suits during war.

          • Lee Clayton

            Those “militiamen” are hunting humans, not turkeys. And they are not fighting a war. They are homicidal cowards, and, according to Cooper’s criteria, they deserve to be shot.

    Amen. Fellow survivor here. It’s horrible to be threatened on our streets by creeps who are claiming to protect us.
    They’ve created a climate in which actual survivors with PTSD are no more than a punch line and less safe than we were.
    I’d rather hear a rape joke than get maced in the face!

  • Wow

    “What is left” is that you accept his right to free speech, period. That is all that is left. Saying that because your mass call-ins, faculty and student objections, letter-writing campaigns, and numerous op-eds don’t block his free speech, you get to resort to violence, is idiotic and beyond stupid. Being violent, having a temper tantrum because you’re not getting your way, is what a baby does because they don’t have the self control and words to express themselves. You are literally behaving like a baby.

    And the worst part is, some day you will be violent toward someone that is armed, they will pull their gun and shoot you or one of your friends, possibly resulting in death. And you will blame them despite the fact that you started the violence, you threatened them, you couldn’t stop at expressing your free speech, you had to use violence to trample on someone else’s, you’ll still try to claim it was their fault.

    That’s exactly what happened at the University of Washington, and it will happen again if you and your ilk continue to resort to violence instead of actually being mature and using your words.

  • woodrose

    On Cal’s official FB page, it says the FBI and UCPD are working to identify those who committed the violence. Just because you’ve not yet been arrested doesn’t mean you could not be arrested tomorrow.

    The BlackBloc idiots who vandalized DC on Inauguration Day have been charged with felony rioting, with a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted. 63 people have now been indicted by the grand jury, so they think they have enough evidence to convict.

    I hope the FBI and police identify the vandals and throw the book at them. Not because I enjoy seeing people go to prison, but it’s necessary to stop people from joining the BlackBloc anarchists. If left to run wild, they will bring Trump Martial Law down on all of us.

    We must rid the antiTrump resistance of violent BlackBloc anarchists, or they will kill the movement, just like they killed Occupy. (Google Chris Hedges, A Cancer on Occupy, from 2012). And they will do so happily. They are bullies that threaten peaceful protesters with violence if they ‘snitch’ or take photos or stand between them and their targets. They invade and ruin demonstrations that were organized by others. They are not our allies.

  • woodrose

    Milo did NOT out anyone who had not previously outed herself. The UWM student had gone to the media a few months before Milo’s talk, demanding unfettered access to the women’s locker room and sauna. She did TV interviews as a very early stage transgender woman. She put her image out there in the public domain.

    When people publicly identify themselves to the media as undocumented and unafraid, or as an early-stage transgender woman demanding full access to the women’s sauna, they open themselves up to discussion by anyone who cares to do so, including odious performance artists like Milo. That’s reality, and no amount of Black Bloc vandalism will change it.

    I suspect Milo’s ‘list of undocumented students’ would be a list of those Cal students who have publicly identified themselves to the media as Undocumented and Unafraid. I could spend a few minutes on google and create such a list — is it worth burning down Berkeley to stop a person from publicizing info already in the public domain????

    Especially considering the Berkeley violence did not stop Milo. He can put out his ‘list’ in his book, which is now a bestseller, even before it goes on sale, due to the publicity the Black Bloc gave him.

    Your violence protected no one.

  • woodrose

    Black Bloc violence helped kill the Occupy movement. Peaceful people won’t show up for marches if they know masked anarchists will show up and riot.

    If activists cannot keep the toxic Black Bloc away from their protests, their violence will kill the Anti-Trump resistance.

    If anarchists continue rioting, they will bring Trump Martial Law down on all of us.

    I urge the Berkeley police to review tapes, assemble evidence, and arrest and charge the vandals and those who committed assault. Throw the book at them. It is necessary in order to discourage young people from joining the violent anarchists, which must be done to protect the effective, peaceful resistance to Trump.

    Do you have actual examples of Milo’s use of “hate speech”? Not where he disagreed with the tactics of BLM or with primary tenets/mythologies/etc of radical, regressive, authoritarian movement-feminism. But REAL examples of hate speech.

    I ask because I’ve actually seen the guy speak on numerous occasions on YouTube and with the granted exception of his belief that transsexualism is more a “sickness” than a real thing, I’ve never heard him utter a word that I would see as hateful towards black people, women, etc. He absolutely disagrees with the tactics and the alternative facts utilized by the movements who say they speak for these people, but this is not by definition hate speech.

    This is why the left continues to loose election after election (and why they don’t seem to see it): simply disagreeing with you, your ideology, and/or your tactics does not by definition constitute sexism/racism/hate-speech or any other loaded term you wish to throw around.

    For the record, I am a true, classical liberal. I voted for Clinton proudly. As a professional scientist, I fully believe in the EQUALITY of all people regardless of race, creed, gender. However, I have a HUGE problem with the intellectually bankrupt and dishonest beliefs and methods of the left. And by rationalizing violence, you are no better than the crazy Christians who historically rationalized burning people at the stake. Disgusting.

  • Tricia

    We try to teach children by kindergarten the difference between words and behavior. When they are angry and try to hit each other, we say “Use your words”. How is it that college students are confusing speech and behavior? How can they conflate unpleasant speech with violent action?
    I wonder if it is the Supreme Court ruling that burning the flag was a “free speech” issue. Once that physical action was subsumed in to “speech”, why not think that breaking windows is also “speech”? And taking Trump MAGA hats off peoples heads and setting them on fire is also “speech”? And from there to hitting people expressing opinions you disagree with is also “speech”?
    I have always been OK with seeing flag burning as a protesters right, but now I am seeing this as a slippery slope.

    You know why Milo exists? Because of you.

    When you made it impossible to debate Feminist theory, or BLM, or queer theory or any radical left ideology by conflating the ideologies with people you created Milo. When you closed off debate by responding to any challenge of your views with outrage and name-calling YOU created Milo,

    Milo is the response to the silencing of rational discourse by the ideological pieties of the hard left. The only way left to show the absurdity of your ideas is to provoke you: to poke you and show the world how thin-skinned and unable you are to deal with criticism. To provoke your outrage with outrageousness.

    …and of course the snowflakes of the hard left took it to heart and escalated from mere outrage to violence, not because violence is being done to them, but because they are children who can’t stand to be contradicted and throw temper-tantrums.

          Of the interesting interview, this is key
          “SPIEGEL: Can you also get your revenge on him (Hitler) by using comedy?
          BROOKS: Yes, absolutely.
          Of course it is impossible to take revenge for 6 million murdered Jews.
          But by using the medium of comedy, we can try to rob Hitler of his posthumous power and myths. In doing so, we should remember that Hitler did have some talents. He was able to fool an entire population into letting him be their leader. However, this role was basically a few numbers too great for him –- but he simply covered over this deficiency.”

    “I don’t harass people for being trans or Muslim or undocumented. I don’t doxx people for disagreeing with me.”

    Yeah, but you black block friend harass, beat, and doxx people for simple disagreeing with them. You are nothing but a coward. You claim a moral high ground while encouraging others to do your dirty work.

    • Tehy

      Yeah, AntiFa is noted for doxing people that they don’t like. Though admittedly the people they dox are often pretty bad, but it’s still one of their top tactics. Not sure why he’s unaware of this.

    • Ipsophakto

      …hypocrisy is his “luxury”

    • PhaseV

      The “antifa” terrorists doxxed Milo’s event organizer at UW, so there goes their false “we don’t doxx” narrative.

    • Solid Bow

      Not just Black Bloc peeps. One of the reasons I have been tracking the movement of free speech the last few years is that I personally witnessed mobs of online SJWs go after people and I had never seen any other group do so in such a way.

      Usually they would:

      1. Compile your info
      2. Mock you relentlessly on any media you had
      3. Doxx you
      4. Threaten you
      5. Contact your employer/school incessantly or if you represented or worked with others they would flood them with fictitious slander

      The scariest I’ve seen is groups of “Progressives” going after children. THAT was some sick stuff. I watched probably 100+ Women/Men aged 20-35 doxx 10 and 11 year olds and threaten them with violence.

      I have been interested in how Libertarians finally had enough with small groups pushing back. As they did so (using the same ‘Progressive’ tactics) others further ‘Right-Wing’ started adopting aspects of it and molding fairly stupid SJW movements of their own (like the Alt-Right).

      I remember a good couple years of focusing on debate and discussion, particularly when New Atheism was growing and Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, etc would actually debate Religious leaders. Even if you were religious or atheist or anything else the debates were interesting, direct and also fairly compassionate and grounded.

      But, as far as I can tell, “progressives” despise all these people who actually debate (except maybe some of the radical Imams).

    Understanding and even embracing the fact that yo don’t get to choose wo gets to speak or not?

    • Tripper

      Theoretically you’re correct. But their violent fascist tactics DID work in Berkeley. They shut Milo down. So they’ll be emboldened to commit more violence. It’s up to the real Americans to make sure that next time it’s the left’s faces hit by baseball bats (or bullets). If cops won’t defend our rights it’s up to us. Thankfully, we’re well armed.

      • Tricia

        Actually, I think that is what they want. I think they want to provoke the right wing to violence.

        • Tripper

          And it will happen. I’m not rooting for it, but if I see a girl getting pepper sprayed for wearing a Trump hat, or people getting beat with baseball bats, like in Berkeley, I hope we real Americans are there to defend ourselves – with bats, bullets and any other means necessary. If the cops won’t do it, we will.

          • Tricia

            I think you probably know that a man trying to attend the Yiannopoulis event at U W in Seattle was not charged for shooting an Antifa protestor as it was self defense.

      • Solid Bow

        “Their violent tactics DID work” …

        Well they:

        1. Did massive property damage to their own community
        2. Sullied the reputation of the University
        3. Had Alumni drop support for the school
        4. Got Milo more than 1.3 mil views on his Youtube account on the violence (that’s an extra 1.2 mil views than he’d normally get)
        5. Got him additional press
        6. Sent Milo’s book to #1 best seller on Amazon
        7. Got Trump tweeting about de-funding the Uni
        8. Injured several people quite severely

        9. Are quickly forcing those who may even think they will be targeted by Antifa to arm up

        I’m guessing they don’t have rocket scientists or future political leaders in charge… or one would hope.

    • jabuchan08

      Notice he didn’t include “actually debating those we disagree with” every tactic he says they tried involves trying to shut the speaker down, not engage with him, not prove him wrong or make him look foolish, but to silence him.

      “we tried everything!” Yeah, everything but the right thing.

  • grendelkhan

    To those who hate Yiannopoulos and the alt-right but have a hard time condoning black bloc tactics and property damage, I understand that these tactics are extreme. But when you consider everything that activists already tried — when mass call-ins, faculty and student objections, letter-writing
    campaigns, numerous op-eds (including mine), union grievances and peaceful demonstrations don’t work, when the nonviolent tactics have been exhausted — what is left?

    Does this guy hear himself?

    “I didn’t get my way. What was I supposed to do, not smash things and beat people until they did what I wanted?”

    Do broken windows frighten you more than bullets?

    It’s not the broken windows. It’s the woman pepper-sprayed for wearing the wrong color hat. It’s the beatings and the thrown bricks. This is going to escalate, and you are going to be so shocked that when you disturb the fragile equilibrium of ‘words get more words; words do not get bullets’, your opponents don’t just give up and go home. You reckless, childish imbecile.

    • Tehy

      Yeah, notice how half of these op-eds don’t mention that people were getting beaten up. I mean, that woman was getting filmed by a TV crew and they’re still trying to pretend like it was just harmless property damage. Currently assessed at $100,000 by the way, but hey.

    • Sven

      The far left don’t seem to realize all those gun toting people they hate are the exact same people that want the freedom of speech that the far left is trying to take away. These far left groups are poking a sleeping bear. The UW rioter that got shot is the the first evidence of this, if it continues, these rioters will have even more blood on their hands. People see the police standing around not caring when rioters attack people, and people will decided to show up ready to defend themselves.

    To whom is responsible for this student newspaper, I, a local in the community surrounding your school, and living just a block off campus, am deeply disturbed by the events of February 1st. The school’s reputation is less my concern than the safety of myself, my loved ones, and my fellow man. The damage, as we all know, was more than just material. People were hurt. As I walked onto campus to see why there were so many sirens, and if I could help in the case of an emergency, I experienced enough to see that a mass amount of people were were running around Berkeley with the intention to cause destruction, and the willingness to be violent if anyone stood in their way. This is criminal and gang behavior. I do not care what their reasons were. Terrorizing neighborhoods is not tolerable in a progressive society. I respect any student’s opinion in regards to the events of that evening, but confessing to the crimes is not just freedom of speech. I will write whomever I have to at your school, as well as write our local police authority to see that the student who wrote this article is taken into custody, and expelled from the school as a threat to campus safety. I will also rally others in our community to pursue the same charges for this individual until it is done. Cal and the entire city of Berkeley must not condone violence.

    As for the student who wrote this, I suggest you and your masked friends look to how Martin Luther King Jr. lead the Civil Rights Movement on the foundation of hope and peace. He used his freedoms of speech and assembly wisely, while not hiding his face.

As I researched the players ANTIFA and BAMN more, I was STUNNED to see what all they had done prior to this event. BAMN is literaly recruiting amongst your children! Has any of Berkeley’s citizens spoken out against this? Are these groups intimidating or threatening you all? Do your police and politicians not stand up for you? Its so difficult to understand why any community would subject themselves to living with a lit powder keg?

    “My constitutional right to be outrageous and offensive in the press is very precious to me.” Bravo. And when you decide to study politics, you will take your powers to the next level and use them to increase virtue and to decrease vice.

True power is amazing. “Antifa was there to protect UC Berkeley students.” Um, I don’t need your protection.

    • assyrianisis

      Then they weren’t there for you. I needed their protection. My undocumented students needed antifa protection, my female students needed antifa protection. The University failed to protect its students, and many of us are grateful that the black bloc stepped up while the administration was wringing their hands and asking for a riot (they stated the only condition under which they would cancel the talk was “clear and present danger [to Milo, not students]”).

      Clearly, by the writings we see here; we can increase safety by increasing violence.
      Only by more roving anonymous gangs doling out beatings to any who dissent from their views can there be peace.

      Of course that relies on everyone doing as they’re told; and never dissenting from the violent gangs who demand obedience.

            When the illegal voting (which is easily provable and you don’t have to look far as they’re starting to make arrests) is shut down, and the leftist temper tantrum that has been going on (and I love the fact that their slogan was “Love Trumps hate” and then spewed nothing but hate as soon as they lost) costs you any shot at reasonable votes, you really have no chance.

            The Democrats have basically destroyed themselves. “If you don’t accept the results of the election, that’s a danger to our country” turns into “RESIST”. The “You have to obey the rule of law” turns into looting, rioting and assaults. Your side has shown they are really the fascists. And the writer of the opinion piece literally shows how insane they are. What justification is there for taking a baseball bat and bashing a woman walking down the street because she happens to disagree with you? What justification is there for seeing a woman standing there giving an interview and running up and macing her? What justification is there for rioting, looting and burning buildings because someone wanted to express an opinion. Is an opinion so dangerous that you can’t let it be heard without violence? Then you, truly are, a fascist. Not an “anti-fa” or whatever they want to claim they are. You can’t use fascist tactics to combat fascism. And the right isn’t the fascist side.

You’re picking a fight with people who have been stockpiling guns and ammo for the past eight years and have the full weight of the federal government behind them.

            its not fascism he is speaking. but you would not know this. most people call it bluffing the opponent. You know trash talk in sports by men (but maybe you don’t know what men do?)

            cpj is a beta male trying desperately to appear alpha.
            Not succeeding, though.

            Try Harder

            A man went with his family to the inauguration. Took his 15 year old daughter. They walked out of the hotel, and several of the Trump supporters who attended the “DeploraBall” happened to be staying there. A bunch of “protesters” were there. One of your side ran up and threw a cup of scalding coffee in the daughter’s face. THAT is who you support. The disgusting people who would burn a 15 year old girl for daring to stay at a hotel where someone they don’t like is staying. Your side is having a collective temper tantrum and showing their true fascist colors. Fascism is about governmental control. Your side has driven it as hard as possible and Trump is tearing it down, and you can’t stand to lose your fascist dream.

            Read some history, you’re the Brown Shirts in 2017

        Your message to the nation is that antifa and anarchists are in favor of Nazi-ish thuggery during the Weimar Republic. Literally engaging in street fights in response to opinions you don’t like.

        That’s a bold move Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off.

        You are more likely to drink castor oil than win the midterms

        • Chief Presiding Judge

          Try not to kill yourself when you lose.

          • iggyauggie

            Lol we already won. Wait til after midterms when we get over 60 Senate seats . Lifetime of power

          • Dale

            You lost, so maybe you should do us a favor……..

      • Churchill4President

        The left lost the election. Accept the rules. Stop acting like spoiled little cry babies.

        • Chief Presiding Judge

          Trump lost the election by 3 million votes.

          • Jadean

            gosh darn when will you kids get this thru your thick skull –popular vote only counts in a tie from electoral votes. Or to explain it easier you know how the vice-president is the tie-breaker in the senate? yes. The popular vote in national elections work the same way. honestly if you guys wanted the Democratic candidate to win then you should have voted for her in the states that she flew over. gosh just stop with the jab on popular vote

          • Attila Iskander – A Deplorable

            Well..
            Don’t expect too much from children in denial of reality.

          • EnricoIsPixelated

            Those 3 million came from California and New York do we really want you lot running the country? Nope

          • laserblast92

            Nope.

        • Krokamo

          They can’t.

    • Tom Servo

      You are dead on right!!! The antifa morons don’t even realize that they’ve created every red state campaign ad for the Senate races in 2018. All anyone running against a democrat senate candidate in a red state has to do is show clips of the antifa assholes burning and smashing, with the words “YOUR DEMOCRAT SENATOR SUPPORTS THIS!!!”

      He’s too stupid to even bother looking at the 2018 senate races, but if he did, he’d probably realize that all of those races are in states where people just don’t go for this kind of shit.

      • Chief Presiding Judge

        And the fascist morons of the modern right-wing don’t even realize that they’ve created every blue state campaign ad for the Senate races in 2018. All anyone running against a republican senate candidate in a blue state has to do is show clips of the alt-righters they worship giving their bigoted speeches, or authoritarians like Trump constantly violating civil liberties.

        • Tripper

          The anti-American left tried that in 2016. How’s that go?

        • EnricoIsPixelated

          How’d that work out for you at the election? ……

        • Spacewarp

          Ummmmm…. The fascists were the ones using the power of violent riots, assaults and brutality to cow people into accepting their state control. Who used the violence? That would be your side. Which side wanted to nationalize health care? That would be your side. Which side wanted to nationalize energy? That would be your side. Which side wants to nationalize nearly everything? That would be YOUR side. Your side is the fascist side. Not the right. And the racists who grabbed onto the coattails and said they were part of it, they don’t speak for me or many of my friends who are on the right. They speak for themselves and are roundly shouted down by those of us who love freedom. When we have miscreants, we act accordingly. Your take with miscreants, embrace them.

          Really. You should be more careful with your terms.

        • Baresark

          A few hicks get together and no one gets assaulted or murdered, nothing gets destroyed. Everyone with 3 brain cells or more knows to ignore them. Their like will always be around but they literally have no power in America.

          A bunch of leftist snowflakes get together, burn and break stuff, and assault people. You make it so people can’t ignore your idiocy with dumb op-eds such as this. Yeah, nothing like destroying your chances of any meaningful way that you desire.

          The funny part is, you’re the fascist. You’re the force that must be stopped. Not the right, at least not yet. You think people are gonna worry about tomorrow fascists today, or today’s fascists today.

    Disgusting! I hope you’re sent to prison.
