What fighting back looks like.
That one’s hilarious all right, but this might be even better.
#ShutDownICE Protesters Shocked When Pick-up Truck Drives Through Their Blockade
A pickup truck drove into a row of protesters who were blocking the entrance to an ICE detention center in Rhode Island, Wednesday night, forcing them to scatter. “The whole world is watching!” the shocked crowd chanted in response. The truck reportedly belonged to a guard at the facility.
To add insult to injury, guards from the detention center later came out and pepper-sprayed the protesters.
Alas, it ain’t all happiness and joy; as so often happens in this life, we must take some bitter with the sweet.
No one one was seriously injured, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) reported.
Well, that’s a damned shame. Better luck next time, I guess.
Video of the incident shows people screaming and running as the car moves slowly into the crowd. The crowd then broke out into a chant of “The whole world is watching.”
And pointing, and laughing.
“It was shocking, it was unexpected,” Rofeberg told JTA. “There’s some amount of risk when you go to an action like this. You don’t expect it to unfold like this.”
Not up until now you didn’t, more’s the pity. It is to be hoped your expectations will need to be adjusted accordingly from here on out. And the glad tidings just keep rolling in.
Proud Boys, Antifa Will Square Off in Portland This Weekend
If you’re going to be visiting Portland, Oregon, this weekend, the city fathers want you to know that despite Antifa and the Proud Boys confronting each other in rival demonstrations, you shouldn’t let that ruin your weekend.
If I’m in Portland, I figure my weekend is pretty much ruined anyway. A righteous PantiFa beatdown dealt out by the Proudies might be the only thing that could keep it from being a total loss.
