Street gang? Really?

Not long after dozens of black-hooded protesters were filmed pummeling people on his city’s streets, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin made clear his disgust for the self-stylized vigilantes.

“Antifa,” he said, is no different than a street gang, and police should start treating protesters in the anti-fascist movement accordingly.


What gets me is that in California if you even threaten somebody with an ass whipping you can be charged with ‘making terrorist threats’. Seriously – it’s happened. Yet antifa can make these threats and then do their damnedest to carry them out and California lawmakers are wringing their hands on how to classify the organization.

    Classification? “Target”.

    We all know they are domestic terrorists but at least this is a move in the right direction.
    Street gang classification adds charges and sentencing guidelines, especially in California,

    Speaking of Berkeley and Antifa, I wonder what ever became of Associate Professor of Philosophy and Ethics Eric Clanton and his bike lock.

    It is a step in the right direction. Once classified as a gang, it is then illegal for more than a couple antifa bozos to in the same place, enhanced sentences, weapons charges, etc. Whether the PDs do anything about it is another story. Although this will make it easier for citizens to go after the PDs for constitutional violations (Federal crime) if it is not enforced.

    Eric Clanton was charged with four counts of assault with deadly weapon. We’ll see how that goes too…

    Horse squeeze. This jackass is part of their fakebook group. The word has gone out this week, gotta distance yourselves from those you’ve supported. Looking has shown that people of all stripes (minus the politicians, NGO’s, media and academics) have had enough of y’all’s crap. That’s why all of the stories the past week have been out there. Don’t rattle the normies…too much. Might wake em out of their slumber.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
