    Anyone know more to this? I don't know the full context, but looks disguised if true.

    Looks like the antifa are having themselves a great, moral highground week by beating people up.

    No worries though, Twitter ain't gonna ban them.

    The Proud Boys and Antifa often come into conflict. Of course, you wouldn't expect Michelle Malkin to mention the Proud Boys.

    Lat I checked, I didn't see "street scuffles" in Twitter's code of conduct. Where is that?

    Do you know how the proud boys started? Lol

    I just learned a few weeks ago.

    Interesting.

    Also, so since it's the Proud Boys, you condone this?

    Do you think the answer is something besides "as a misogynistic Gavin McInnes fan club"? Is so, what?

    I don't recall condoning anything. Both Antifa and the Proud Boys have made open commitments to engage in violence for "defensive" purposes, and the natural result when they encounter each other will be each side defending themselves by escalating the conflict.

    Probably, Any Ngo was hurt by a member of Antifa. As for the pictured John and Adam, I don't know who hurt them or what they were doing, and certainly don't trust Malkin to be accurate in her description.

    So, what part of the Terms of Service for Twitter did Antifa violate? Still waiting on that one.

    My take, reaction and opinion on the proud boys and Gavin (I don't even know who he really) pretty much mimics Joe's and Tim's in the YouTube clip I posted. Watch that and tell me if you have a problem with it.

    The part where they're a terrorist organization that incites violence. There's a **** load of examples. Your bias might keep you from finding them though.

    As a confirmed skeptic of all "news", I used to wonder if Alex Jones was some kind of black agency psy-op set up to deliberately be provocative.... a sort of self-immolation public spectacle.... like the orange-toga buddhist priest with a can of gasoline..... a deliberate Marxist fake "American Patriot" intended to give all Americans who imagine being an "American" is wonderful.

    However, when lawsuits against him were seriously pursued, and the social media gaggle of new money tyrants began to take him down, I decided he was legit.

    And that our social media is a real threat to the principle of American constitutional guarantees of human rights. Now we don't need a Big Brother government with jack-booted thugs bearing guns and tasers to take out noncompliant citizens or "rebels". Big Brother has been privatized here in the USA.

    China has simply not needed to refine the task force beyond actually State-owned corporate operations....

    The whole problem with conservatives or "freedom advocates" is they are just never up to speed or well-enough informed to effectively counter the better "expert" governance class of fascist "management".

    OB might not be talking to me anymore. I keep trying to make it look embarrassing for intellectual abstraction of any perfectly compliant presentation of why we should really worship "experts".

    Please quote the specific passage in the Terms of Service.

    I suppose throwing milkshakes is violence. They are not a terrorist organization, they are a protest organization. Anytime you have a protest organization that is willing to use violence to "defend" itself, violence will occur, and people more interested in heat than light will call them terrorists.

    Antifa does not go around attacking the general public, despite what the Malkins of the world tell you.

    While I never thought he was not legit, I can't say I would have been convinced you were wrong.

    Did you know their is a right-wing counterpart to the social media (Gab), where no de-platforming occurs (supposedly)? Go check it out. Freedom!

    Yeah, I'm really a-scared of you embarrassing me, in the way that the stereotypical crazy old person embarrasses everyone at Thanksgiving.

    If you don't even know who Gavin McInness after watching that clip, it obviously doesn't explain enough about the Proud Boys to be worth watching.

    I don't really care to know more about McInnes or the Proud Boys.

    I do care about people bashing others in the head with a crowbar though. Regardless if they have ****ed up moral values.

    Point is, it shouldn't be that hard to condemn the act without bringing up you suspected thoughts

    It's really hard to take you serious and answer your questions when you write gobbledygook like "suppose throwing milkshakes is violence.

    If you watched the video, it was nothing but a disgusting act of violence.

    "Suppose."


    Gawd damn it.

    Got it. You don't care what Antifa is responding to.

    Understood. You don't care when Heather Clark has her cervical vertebrae broken by a Proud Boy, it only matters what Antifa does. You don't even know who was wielding the crowbar here, you just assume it's Antifa. You do you.

    I condemn the violence on both sides. However, since neither side will pledge non-violence, the violence is inevitable.

    To recollection, there were a bunch of videos about the violence of the protests in Ferguson, as well, always carefully including just the part the right-wingers wanted to include and leaving out the provocations.

    That said, I'm sure a couple of people from Antifa have attacked people who have not been harassing others, just like there have been a couple of people beaten up by Proud boys who were not gay. Mistakes happen.

    I don't care if they protest. I don't care if they fight against hatred.

    I care when they mask themselves and jump reporters until their brain hemorrhages. I care when they beat a guy over the head with a crowbar. Apparently, you don't.

    I can draw lines.

    I do care Heather Clark was killed and **** you for saying that. **** everyone of those right wingers at Ferguson. And especially **** the coward, terrorist that ran over the crowd like a bitch. I hope that guy rots in hell and has a miserable time the rest of his piece of **** life in jail.

    What do you think of the FBI and DOJ deprioritizing extremists?

    Right, you don't care that they are fighting against a group that glorifies in physical violence, you just care that they are fighting.

    I can draw lines as well. I don't support either side, but recognize the side that glorifies violence, and the reporters who support them (such as Ngo), are the bigger problem.

    I believe you have confused Heather Clark (a much less-publicized case, still OK despite a neck fracture) with Heather Heyer (who was killed, but not by a Proud Boy).
