(Business Insider)   YOU knew that flyer advertising "Antifa Flag Burning Rally" complete with a "face painting booth" for the kids was an obvious fake, as did anyone with a brain. However, a dozen or so right-wing militia types apparently don't match that description   (businessinsider.com) divider line

If it's that easy to bait them they should do it again except this time be waiting in the bushes with barrels full of dirty diapers to pelt them with. Or tell them that Antifa is planning on taking over the Mariana Trench and that they should go occupy the floor of the ocean, with no air, because air is for commie-terrorists.

I should run one for Confederate flag burning in, say, Brooksville, Florida. In a Walmart parking lot.

They will reason this as "See, we scared them off!" and will fall for the next hoax.

thorpe: It was more than"a dozen or so" apparently.

There's a video on that page of a large group of them surrounding a guy with a Black Lives Matter shirt and telling him he can't visit the battlefield. A cop steps in to calm things down and basically tells him to go elsewhere. Also has some truly idiotic talk and a closeup manboob shot.

There's a conspiracy to embarrass Donald Trump?  Who knew it was a conspiracy when he does it so regularly himself!!!!

They'll tell themselves ANTIFA took one look at all these sturdy Patriots and ran off, then they'll declare victory.  There's literally nothing too delusional for people that far gone.

The flyer did not even provide the address.  I guess the address is pretty well known.

Are the knee pads in case Trump shows up in person?

A man had entered the cemetery wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt. The man, Trent Somes, later told The Post he was visiting the grave of an ancestor, not protesting. A seminarian and associate pastor at First United Methodist Church in Hanover, Pa., Somes said a crowd of about 50 people surrounded him and aggressively questioned him about his shirt.

Police arrived and encouraged Somes to leave.

"For his own safety, federal law enforcement made the decision to remove him, and he was escorted out of the cemetery," Jason Martz, acting public affairs officer for Gettysburg National Military Park, later said.



Black man minding his own business is accosted by a crowd of white people, yet HE is asked to leave by the police, not them. The reasoning behind BLM in a nutshell.

Pretty farking gullible...  From WaPo:

In 2017, rumors of an antifa event at the national park prompted a large group of armed militia members to show up. They encountered no one from antifa, but one of the armed militia members accidentally shot himself in the leg with a revolver.

Oh, look, they showed up cosplaying as "patriots."

That's sweet. I like the old lady who showed up to prevent the flag from being defaced by wearing a defaced flag. Powerful stuff there. Not a lick of sense and about as sharp as a sack of wet mice, but boy howdy are they PREPARED to take on Antifa.

Which, I suppose makes them fascists if they want to oppose Antifa.

Man, for a bunch of folks that hate being called fascists, they sure seem to get upset with the idea of folks who oppose fascists. Wonder why that is...hmmm...just so...puzzling...

So, wait. All these "Patriots" showed up to protect people against their first amendment rights?

I'm confused.

A few Confederate flag bearers, self-proclaimed oath keepers, and various right-wing militias descended on the park on July 1, anticipating a clash that has yet to materialize.



Oaths don't work that way. You need a second person.

They may actually enjoy those places and were probably going to vacation there on Labor Day anyways.  We should send them someplace really unpleasant that they will hate.  Death Valley in the middle of August.
