Is it not Donald Trump that enabled a racist to trash our country’s core values and subvert the rule of law and yet, face no consequences? We are living through a battle for the soul of this nation.

Somebody somewhere has known this Joey Gibson long enough to know he is no "moderate liberal" by any conventional metric. He's virtually the equivalent of "Blacks for Trump."

You have to be kidding right? Antifa is a COMMUNIST MOVEMENT, not a group of pot-growing, rainbow hippies who really DO care about the dangers of fascism. The LEFT ARE THE FASCISTS, and they are about to be annihilated.

Yvonne Felarca, a spokeswoman for the militant left-wing organization By Any Means Necessary, defended Sunday's violence. Evidently the Berkeley police and mayor agree with her.

Berkeley Police Chief Andrew Greenwood said he ordered officers to abandon the park when the black-clad activists arrived. Confronting them would have risked escalating the violence and jeopardizing the safety of the peaceful protesters, Greenwood said.

The mayor said the police acted appropriately, saying the anarchists "were trying to provoke the police."

So exactly what is the function of the Berkely PD? Evidently if you dress up as a 'black-clad activist' you're good to go to beat anyone you like.

Anarchists have no place in society.

They may think they are helping fight against fascism, but they just make it much harder for good people to fight the good fight.

This is all rhetoric by people who are going to do what they were going to do anyway. The "Anarchists" could represent anyone and any ulterior motive. People need to stay rational and you know.......part of staying rational JUST MIGHT include political action other than having a wild party at the weekend protest rallies.

To be a tool for the biased mayor. They used the same excuse several times at this point now. Apparently 'mutual combat' is 'ok' in Berkeley.

The left wing violence, much of it fomented by agent provocateurs over many years of "theorizing"; the right wing provocations; the passive police response - which you never see at even peaceful BLM matter or Occupy or WTO or RNC/DNC protests - all point the way to an orchestrated "justification" for martial law.(Same for all the military personnel in Ill Duce Trump's upper level Administration.)

"Trumpet is certainly an anarchist!"

Ill Duce Trump is as much a tool in the march to martial law as are these tiki khaki nazis and these antifa types. They all at once have a role to play in the drama and are almost completely irrelevant as far as the end goal goes.

The anarchist left office in January. Obama divided a Nation and condoned civil disobedience in places like Ferguson. Ultimately, Obama's actions were the catalyst that caused the deaths of five Dallas cops last year.

Fortunately, we have a new President undoing the deeds of an evil scumbag.

Democrats hating democrats. And then blaming Trump. F ck all you protesters, Nobody is listening to you. Not Nancy Pelosi, not Donald Trump, and not Americans. You people are a product of the ACLU, the inventors of the KKK, illegal aliens, Muzzies, and all the rest of your made up bull sh!t. You all are the sh!t generation. The students who will never be anything but poor, broke, and unhappy. Go to hell, and have another miserable day, while Americans are partying at the river. You are not welcome at the river, stay the f ck away. Americans only, not communist socialist college student pigs.
