“Hot Topic anarchists.” Gotta love that one.
After being outnumbered, Antifa failed to shut down the weekly right-wing flag event in Oregon City, which neighbors Portland except here law enforcement and the district attorney don’t tolerate rioting.
Antifa groups circulated a flyer online last week calling for comrades to counter protest the weekly flag waving event near Clackamas Community College. “Oregon City is allowing fascists to continue and grow their weekly flag wave, if we don’t put a stop to it, they will command more control!” the flyer urged. Clackamas Community College canceled classes in light of Antifa’s anticipated presence.
Friday, the day of the dueling protest, things seemed anti-climatic as Antifa only managed small numbers and gathered at a shopping center near the college campus then quickly left. Portland-based Antifa accounts on Twitter expressed outrage that not enough appeared to shut down the conservative rally.
Police were on scene Friday to keep the opposing groups separate, but there were no reports of any violence breaking out. “The people you call Antifa,” one of the right-wing protesters told KOIN 6 News, “they have no idea what Portland is. They watched Portlandia and came here. They’re hipsters wearing all black. Hot Topic anarchists,” the 42-year-old said to the local news outlet.
In all, at least 250 conservative demonstrators, some armed, protested at the planned event that seemed to occur without incident despite the hype.
That’s because some were armed, and as Heinlein knew, an armed society is a polite society.
I have the feeling most of the antifa types are pussy’s, with a bit of courage provided by the numbers. Meet a bit of deadly resistance and they’ll fold.
Depends on what their “sponsor” requires them to do to get paid!
Most of the antifa folks arenothing special, relying on protection from their sponsors so they can attack soft targets without consequences. Taking on tough, determined opposition is not their game. But there are some dangerous types among the rest, and they will do as much damage as they can just because they can. Don’t assume the entire group will melt away at the first sign of trouble. Many will, but not all.
Most will. The few paid agents included.
When they meet real resistance 75% or more will run, the remaining will look around and understand the hopeless situation and skedaddle as well.
In a real Army there are many support troops. Pantifa has little in the way of support once the “protest” begins. A handful of the pantifa are trained combat personnel, but I doubt that is as much as 1 in a hundred. The only reason they survive at all is because they are protected by the city government. Take that away and they’ll be routed quickly when they meet opposition.
Ah, but then they and many more will be back. At least until those who fund them are dealt with appropriately!!!
Meaning somebody else will have to do the actual wet work while you sit back on the sidelines. It’s always the same with Chicken Little MarkMatis!!!!
Shove it uppa Jew ess sideways, Hymie!!!
Oh look, henryKaren is calling someone “Chicken Little”.
You keyboard pantywaist warriors crack me up.
Put you’re mask on and breathe deep henryKaren. Scream “I might die” from the virus.
Hank Wanks again. How very boring. Of course as a Canadian you weren’t into that whole Brexit 1776 like we were.
“like we were.” Gee, Kenny is also a stolen valor “warrior”. Show us your medals putz.
Put yours up first Karen. Maybe you could pin that “I survived the deadly virus” medal on your diaper. And scream “I might die”.
