Antifa Attacks Peaceful Protesters Celebrating Freedom;
One Protester Draws (But Does Not Aim) Gun After Antifa Splashes Paint on His Windshield and Pelts His Car with Rocks

The media, of course, is taking antifa's side.

They support antifa's lawless rule of the streets.


Dramatic video shows the moment a man pulls a gun on Antifa protesters as they clashed with demonstrators taking part in a "Freedom Rally" near the Oregon state Capitol on Sunday.

The older man -- wearing an American flag sweatshirt -- was filmed in Salem initially getting out of his pickup truck to survey the damage allegedly caused by the Antifa mob.

He initially appeared calm as the counter-protesters dressed all in black surrounded and mocked him, with some threateningly aiming canisters at him throughout the confrontation.

Cannisters of bear spray, perhaps? The Ultimate Weapon the media can't stop talking about? The weapon that "Insurrectionists" used to nearly take over the government?

But no big deal when antifa uses it on peaceful citizens, right?

But the squabble took an ugly turn after he was either sprayed in the face or struck with an object -- prompting him to flinch and draw his weapon on the crowd.

"Get away from me!" he shouted, yanking a handgun from his waistband and cocking it as he aimed it toward the leftist activists.

As the mob screamed about his loaded gun, an armed officer quickly approached and forced the driver to the ground, with a large force of riot police quickly swarming the scene.

The police intervened... in defense of a violent, terrorist organization.

This cannot go on much longer. And it will not.

I empathize and understand 100%, and my own opinion of the police, in general, has also gone way down as well.

BUT... there's always a but... various departments from city to city and state to state are healthier than others, at least IMHO.

I'm sure you're all aware of Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva's pushing back against antifa- and Soros-supported District Attorney, George Gascon?

My advice would be for everyone to look up how *your* police department is reacting to these stories, or similar stories that happen near you. Are the cops proactive? Do they take law abiding citizens' sides, or antifa's?

Then take it from there.

71 Overcoming a historical legacy of oppression is a difficult and perilous road to walk, but walk it we must. This person's response - brandishing a firearm against unarmed demonstrators - was wildly and unacceptably disproportionate to the risks he faced or the actions that led up to this event. His acute, transactional discomfort pales in comparison to the chronic and systematized oppression of those against whom he acted.

This person's actions against the justified and reasonable pushback of the oppressed against the oppressor further underscore the arrogant entitlement of the historical oppressor class to continue meting out injustice and misery on those they see as beneath them. Rather than cooperating with their attempts to gain compensation for a long history of mistreatment, he threatened them with a deadly weapon. That he was merely arrested instead of being murdered by the police shows that however much progress we may have made thus far, it is still nowhere near enough.

They want the 2nd Amendment repealed and will gladly enforce new anti-gun laws.

95 Also, was anyone here watching the story last week about the LAPD vs the Echo Park homeless?

Basically the city of LA, for whatever reason (good or bad) decided they were sick of the homeless camping out at a park in the neighborhood of Echo Park, and ordered LAPD to clear them out.

This of course caused a giant conflagration between the homeless, lefty activists and the cops. It was a major story on several evenings on several local TV channels at newscast time, with live coverage of the various factions facing each other down.

But... the park was ultimately cleaned out, which surprised me given the politics of the assholes who run LA.

antifa was attacking the vehicle parade just like they always do, the po-po watched it like they always do

rather than say, say 'hey, what is going on here? ' and then serveying the vehicle. the first thing they did it take the black clad goons word for it and cuff the guy not in black

100 As in (planned PsyOp?) Charlottesville, "Unite the Right" had a lot of good people show up wanting to keep the statue, and they had a permit. Why was Antifa allowed to "counter-protest" and arm up without a permit?

-- Because it was staged sure, but only the good people were constantly smeared by media, and abused by the cops (marched them into the confrontation, which may have driven the one unstable guy to ram his car into some). ... These are planned "Insurrections", coordinated with media and police. (1/6 capitol breach was planned mostly by infiltrating saboteurs, it was never an "Insurrection" by the Right ... everyone knows that, everyone in MFM lies about it, especially the part about Trump coordinating it)

Salem is not the progressive hellhole that Portland is, although they do seem to be trying to catch up with big bro lately, especially in the "let hobos sprawl everywhere" department. It's shocking how fast Salem has gone downhill in that area. Tent cities, tarps, and shit strewn everywhere now. Salem was a relatively clean, sleepy, and dull town a couple of years ago.

Most people don't realize the massive personal security problem inherent in accepting an app from these people on your phone, or what an app can actually accomplish. Short answer: damn near anything and much more than a layman would expect.

The foot in the door for a wide authoritarian social credit scheme isn't getting people to compromise on the vaccine passport: it is THE APP ITSELF. Which is increasingly needed as a replacement for the "approved" social media that people are ditching in droves.

The world is littered with the graves of those in the 20th century who didn't have our gift of clarity regarding where we are and where we are going; make use of the opportunity we've been given and get your shit in order while you still can.

But...this is where Trump wasn't enough. We needed someone that would have immediately cashiered every commander until he got to one willing to defend the country from its domestic enemies.

It's not about the profession of policing, it's about agencies. Different ones have different loyalties and you have to understand where the ones in your AO stand.

Any finer distinctions below the agency level require personal connections that most don't have and those that do rarely have time to capitalize on in a crisis.

Sure it will. The police will keep supporting AntiFa because the only dangerous "weapons" in America are firearms wielded by patriots. AntiFa doesn't carry firearms, so they're not ever going to be confronted by the police.

This is going to continue until we are all slaves. Who is going to do exactly what, to make it stop?

Well, going out shooting and taking one or two with you ... not sure that is the most effective strategy. There will need to be more strategic counter attacks.

putting down the riots, or he tried to and was told "fuck you, no" by
those who would have to actually implement it.
Supposedly the Joint Chiefs told Trump to f*ck off which is why he used the DHS guys.

This is probably what happened.

If one of Trump's aides had told him , "Sir, if you put down these riots, you'll lose the election" OR, "Sir, these riots are helping you secure the election", Trump would have said, "FUCK the election. Put down these riots."

So I agree that he was told NO

I remember when Antifa, full of themselves fresh off of victories in Portland last summer and believing a bit too much of their own bullshit, went down to Springfield, OR, which is pretty damn redneck for a small city. They targeted some random suburb and got their asses handed to them pretty well by the locals. They whined that they would be back with bigger numbers but pussed out and never dared go back again.

I don't think I disagree, but I will play devil's advocate for a moment.

If it gets to the point that there is a clear and open uprising and the president attempts to use a lawful power like the Insurrection Act to quell it and his commanders refuse to acknowledge the order, how can he cashier them? Someone has to process the paperwork. Someone has to go throw them out of their offices if they refuse to leave. Someone has to take their keys and disable the computer accounts.

If your generals refuse to follow your orders, how are you going to fire them? If they do that, the game has already been played.

296 Sharkman: "AntiFa doesn't carry firearms, so they're not ever going to be confronted by the police."

Point of Order - The Antifa "medic" who was going after Rittenhouse in Kenosha was armed. He was pulling out his semi-auto to kill Kyle.

So, I get your point, but Antifa is armed - with mostly unconventional weapons specifically to hide that they are weapons - AND with firearms. But the police aren't looking at them when they go after civilians/patriots. They seem to be only interested if the guns are pointed at them. Or if a civilian victim decides to defend himself.

308 Anyone remember the last time an Antifa or BLM mob was arrested en masse, or broken up, or even hindered? The Marching Orders of Law Enforcement are " Stand Down" or " Stand Around". This is obvious.

Back in June the police here cracked down on the local BLM riot, but only after a brick went through the window of a Skyscraper owned by a well connected Billionaire.

Probably, yes. But Trump was not and is not the guy to do that. That action destroys the country as it exists. I think that may well have been a better move than what has actually transpired, but that is not a move he would ever make.

313 Before the first Civil War, the then-Sheriff of my county was one of the leaders of the extensive Underground Railroad network in central Indiana. So were the mayor and the chief of police in my hometown, as well as the town doctor & other prominent citizens. They were doing this in defiance of federal law, as the result of the Dred Scott decision. They did not comply.

Proof, I guess, that sometimes local authorities step up and do what's right.

388 @356 Raimondo-Hey dickhead, remember I gave you my e-mail address on an ONT a few weeks ago. I will start with taking on pussy ass cowardly fucks like you right now. I am in the Bay Area California. I'm in-between projects and will fly or drive to your location. Pick out a gym that hosts a combat sport, we'll sign waivers/release forms and I will choke the fuck out of you.

391 > I keep checking ammoseek

Around here the big box stores that stock ammo announce on Facecock when they have it. Sportsman's Whorehouse and Cabela's for example.

I can't drop everything and hustle to the store at a moment's notice, so I watch ammoseek. Some guys aren't even waiting for the Facecock posts, they go down to the store every day at opening time.

393 Time to start arresting these Antifa Scum Suckers and locking them up in Prison and throw away the key

Posted by: Tamaa the Drongo Bird at March 29, 2021 05:01 PM (FLiOE)

394 last time someone rounded up Antifa and BLM rioters?

Saturday after George floyd died.
Minneapolis. the polica and NG rounded up about fifty-hundred that were marching around on I-94. Very Professional. Surrounded them. Calme them down, sat them down, and arrested them one by one.
of course they were all released after processing and being sent downtown..

that was about the same time Chicago, Washington DC, Philly and NYC were burning, after NO ONE did squat the first four night in Minneapolis.

Finally on Saturday Morning MN Gov. Walz called out the entire MN National Guard, all the DNR and Corrections officers, and anyone with a state police badge to come to Minneapolis Saint Paul.

Amazingly protests continued for the NEXT TWO WEEKS, but the protests were actually, no shit NON VIOLENT. I guess maybe having a company or two of National Guard a block away put a crimp in the hijinks?

396 Just following orders is a universal trait that is injected into policing DNA.
Posted by: AnonyBotymousDrivel Remembers Ashli Babbitt at March 29, 2021 04:08 PM (aXxgO)

It is. And the police are encouraged NOT to think of a difference between "legal" and "moral".

The police are also encouraged to not look up Nuremberg 1947 either.

397 "But the police aren't looking at them when they go after civilians/patriots. They seem to be only interested if the guns are pointed at them. Or if a civilian victim decides to defend himself."

Who is subject to the UCMJ - the police or ANTIFA or both?

399 If you key board commandos are so tough how come you don't take on the antifa like the sa did with the communists. There were police in germany too.

Posted by: raimondo at March 29, 2021 04:52 PM (Qn5Pt)

I'm not sure you're making the distinction between 'willing to fight,' and 'eager to fight.'

Nobody who's ever traded rounds in anger is eager to fight again. That doesn't mean we're not willing.

Yep, and conservatives can't even defund planned parenthood. They'll hand over the guns the same way they handed over the government. With a lot of talk, but very little action.

The vast majority will because conservatives are stupid. Good cops will quit in protest, never realizing that is exactly what they want you to do, so they can replace you with a minority just waiting to crack whitey's skull. You have to play the game like they play the game. Get into hiring positions and then hire only conservatives. You'll never hear of a SJW leaving willingly. They have to be dragged out. For fucks sake at least LEARN from the enemy instead of just doing the same stupid fucking thing and then imagining your guns will save you.

403 Either blacks have free will or they are children unable to make their own choices. Take your pick. This "blacks are brainwashed" is pathetic. It's the same thing the commies say about us. That we are brainwashed into believing what we believe.

Boomercons love them some minorities. If they could only find that perfect black conservative of prophecy, The Black One, then their black Jesus would save them.

404 Once you can no longer buy tranquility by printing money on the political front things will shift and probably in dramatic fashion. And we are headed that way.

Now you know why there has been this air of "hurry" for quite some time. They MUST have all the levers of power when the rug gets pulled. They don't have any choice in this matter either. Anyone paying attention has smelled this coming for several years now. They aren't "desperate" by any stretch but it's the closest thing to it.

Posted by: Common Tater at March 29, 2021 05:31 PM (eXYC7)

405 this is why, all media (except a certain very few, easily IDed) are the enemy and to be treated as the enemy.

408 The cop who shot Ashli Babbit - who was a proud supporter of the riots and BLM - was given justice.

That is, it was recommended that no charges be filed.

Leftist Justice. Just Us. Not You.

409 In most states it is illegal to draw a handgun for a defensive purpose unless the same standards are met for drawing and shooting. Immediate serious harm to you or someone else. Sometimes the law is a bit different on your own property versus out in public, but you cannot not just draw a gun to make someone back-off.
