  1. these anti americans need to take a bath and get back to living in mommy and daddy’s basement

  2. Hmmm, does it make sense to defend the park and innocent people from a giant lynch mob of violent communists? Gee, I don’t know, isn’t that your job?!

  3. Not a taxpaying citizen among the whole motley crew of useful idiots.

  4. Chris Hastey says:

    When are police going to crack down on Antifa and arrest them? The only thing that these “tactical retreats” on the part of police do is to encourage Antifa to engage in further violence. Antifa is becoming the modern day Sturmabteilung (Hitler’s Brown Shirts). Antifa needs to be declared a terrorist organization and the word sent out from the DOJ to local LEO’s – “Arrest these Antifa terrorists and DO NOT BACK DOWN!”

  5. Joel Vinson says:

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I should start selling Antifa branded adult diapers. Hooray, capitalism!

  6. So far I have not seen any proof that there were any “white supremacists” at Berkeley. Nevertheless, that woman who identified herself as Jewish rationalized the crowd’s behavior because she wanted to make the place unwelcome to white supremacists. This is the problem with the left these days. They don’t seem to need proof. Perhaps they don’t care. They seem to have adopted the belief that the ends justify the means, and for that they are more frightening than the people they claim to be fighting against.

  7. I don’t understand why these folks think they can fight fascism by acting like fascists. All they managed to do was ratify what Trump said about the violent alt-left. I think there should be a stringent state law making it a felony for a group to attend demonstrations wearing masks. I also think the ones from out of state should tried on the same charges as the Chicago 7 back in 1968- crossing state lines to incite a riot. Furthermore I think anyone who doesn’t have the courage to show up with their faces hidden don’t belong there. If you are too chicken-livered to demonstrate without hiding your face,stay home.
