#1 note the treatment of left v right wing by the MSM.

You'd think only extreme-left would support a violent fascist group like antifa.

#2 "violent" fascist group is a short description of the goals of all left wingers so of course they object.

#3 Does the Democrat Party qualify? They are showing "whack job" tendencies. Antifa members are annoying and in a group dangerous and destructive. Cowardly also comes to mind. The Weathermen were considered a terrorist group back in the 60s and early 70s. There are many similarities between the Weathermen and Antifa.

#4 Trump's got serious reach if this is the Kraut's reaction to a domestic terrorist issue, or is Baader-Meinhof putting the band back together?

#5 Amazing how Trump gets them to defend the undefendables. "The Devil Trump made me do it!"

#6 We definitely want to take our cues on proper definitions of terror from the Germans.

OTOH, is this just more "trial ballooning" from Trump followed by no actual action?

Cuz that shit is getting old.

#7 Just Do It! The picture of masked Antifa thugs would make the necessity clear.

#10 Meanwhile, two members of the Proud Boys are now up for hearing for clashing with what the court says were "left-wing protesters" last year in NY. Hare and Kinsman stood their ground and faced 20+ bastards from antifa. Naturally they hit whatever they got a hold of, wouldn't you ?

The antifa guys and girls they attacked have refused to come to court to identify them or cooperate with the court And yet, the court is the #%@¶ing court, so it must hold court, right ?. This is understandable because going up on the stand, you can't wear a black mask.

Let's see what new travesty of justice the judges can muster up on their own against the citizen defenders.

Here.
