I did. Anarchists do not believe in violence. Anarchism is the belief of everyone living their own life as they please while leaving others to peaceably live theirs without interference from the government.

I personally do not believe that is attainable but I'm still not going to try and falsely label people.

Violent riots, assaulting police, destroying private property and vicious temper tantrums seems to be the norm among many of today's particularly ignorant "hipsters". This group of spoiled azzhats is little different than the ones in BLM or the ones rioting over the fact that Hillary lost an election. Part of the problem with an entire generation of snowflakes. Even worse are the ones that are 40, 50, 60 years old and never grew up and still participate in these violent acts.

Mental illness? Simple minded people acting out violent acts? Violent people given an excuse to act like thugs? Or as a culture have we just become numb to adults throwing temper tantrums?

Really??
Indians have no standing in pipeline.

Soak those protesters down hourly.

Wrong... The very definition of anarchist (Websters) is

1
: a person who rebels against any authority, established order, or ruling power
2
: a person who believes in, advocates, or promotes anarchism or anarchy; especially : one who uses violent means to overthrow the established order

I am all for that. It doesn't have to be violent.

They are wrong. It's like calling those who supported the bail out of failed businesses a "capitalist". No part of Capitalism supports that.

People want to label people because it makes them feel better about themselves. We weren't killing other people in WWII. We were killing chinks and krauts.

Then you need to take that up with the Webster's dictionary people. I'm sure they'll change their definition, to be just exactly what YOU want it to be......

Anarchists will retaliate..........only after someone has been violent towards them.
