Oh, there's freedom of speech. Just that the far-rightists aren't free from the consequences of their speech.

Sorry, but the price of right-wing idea of free speech is freedom of the left to make equally marginalizing speech against the right -- unless you think the left wing is excluded from your interpretation of the First Amendment.

It is. Didn't you read the OP-it's in Portland.

Portland is an authoritarian collectivist stronghold. There is no point for anyone who believes in individual identity and/or liberty to go there any more than there would have been a point for a Jew to organize a "freedom rally" in 1940 Berlin. Only asking for trouble.

Which in reality all of this boils down to this:


There is an active effort to divide us.
where are the pictures of this guy charging at people with his baton, as you claimed?

Will the mayor demand no face coverings by Antifa? Will they be checked for weapons?

i saw that one, it's in the post i just responded to. i was asking for the one where he's allegedly 'charging people'.

simply holding a weapon that can be used for defensive as well as offensive purposes doesn't tell us anything.

There's video too. He engages with his baton.

But there was a popular narrative spun that he was an unarmed hapless old man just trying to protect "a man in a sundress".

Nailed it.

Claiming "free speech," the Charlottesville group attacked a bunch students the night before their permitted rally.

Many declined to enter the way the police had asked them to to avoid trouble.

They were not interested in "free speech."

They were interested in fighting..

I can see where he charges up and attacks someone with his steel baton.

But where was the man in the sundress?
