Violent Alt-Left strikes again.

The right just tried to have a peaceful rally but noooooo! Can't have that. They have to go and violently oppose people exercising their constitutional rights.

Which is the same shiat that people said when the original Antifa were beating up and exposing Nazis in England and the US in the run-up to WW2 (and even for a few years AFTER the war). Use a new playbook.

Looking at the first photo in the article:

You know when there's an alt-righter bloviating in front of a crowd, facing someone with purple hair and a Superman cape, things are about to get interesting.

Some men pitch circus tents, some pitch box tents...some even pitch pup tents..But then there are those unlucky few that can only pitch an empathy tent..And they're happy at least someone notices and feels sorry for them and helps them out..

I'm not voting for Antifa.  They wear black, like the literal Blackshirts of Fascist Italy.  They hide their faces.  If you have to hide your face, you're the bad guy.  And yes, that applies to cops also.  They commit acts of violence, claiming it's "free speech", all the while condemning so-called "hate speech" as not being protected (hint:  Yes, it is, per the Supreme Court).

So if it's a choice between the extreme left and the extreme right, you're literally voting Nazi no matter which way you vote.  They just emphasize different parts of the Nazi Party Platform.

this.

Something like this happened on my campus many moons ago. I wish people would have the common courtesy to not screw up campus during midterms/finals. It's a good way to breed resentment from the student body. Life sucks enough during test time and any distraction or interruption only makes it worse. All they need to do is wait a week or so and everything would be peachy.

So who is dumber. White supremacists that hold a rally hoping to pick a fight with liberals? Liberal fascists that accept the invitation to a fight? Or the people who who setup an empathy tent in the middle of that?

Well, Yvette Falarca -did- refer to herself as a "Revolutionary Communist" the other day.   That is precisely who is organizing the upcoming Nov. 4 shenanigans.   That's right- scratch an "antifa" thug and find a communist underneath, eager to subjugate you to their will.   They're just practicing the judge/jury/executioner thing right now.

The more things change the more they stay the same. When I was in college in the early 90s Hilary had one of her healthcare town halls on campus.  They closed off over 50% of the parking for event usage and of course the 50% closest to the main buildings.  Plus the student lounge and cafeteria.  Then they had  the nerve to say you were still required to come to classes and that students would not be allowed into the event.

If you deliberately choose to be within 3 city blocks of one of these things you should question your judgment.  White supremacists do not have a real voice in the U.S., never had it never will.  Why sit with them on the fringe unless you are spoiling for a fight.

Fun thing is, Yvette Felarca was out on bail for inciting that riot in Sacramento back in 2016, which means her bail is almost certainly revoked and she's going to spend the rest of her trial, however long it takes, in jail.

Once upon a time, running into someone from the other political party was a not uncommon motivation for second degree murder.

I think some people are feeling some in appropriate nostalgia.

Pretty much... but I think both on top scare normal people of either color.  I mean most of the guys that fought the real Nazi's were in fact white.  Just like most people that fought and died to free the slaves were also white.  It is more about class and power.

She's on her second rioting/assault arrest in the less than 6 months.  Should be interesting to see how the little cult goes on without her to stir them up.
