Meh, antifa has rolled out "tactical gear" and riot shields. Not bad for "just an idea".
And they've coordinated their attacks.

Along similar lines, I don’t envy LE at all in this.

We saw the anti-government, anti-equality and racist comments coming out during the Obama administration. Shame on us for representing it as freedom of speech and for not recognizing it was chiseling away at our democracy,” Mahoney said in an interview. “As we move forward, we need to make sure we are teaching our current staff members that they must have the courage to speak out when they know about another deputy’s or officer’s involvement. There should be no reference to the thin blue line.”

More than a dozen off-duty law enforcement officers were allegedly part of the Jan. 6 mob and are under investigation, according to a Washington Post analysis using news accounts and police and FBI reports. At least a dozen Capitol Police officers are also under investigation for possibly playing a role in the rioting by assisting or encouraging the mob.

Law enforcement leaders across the nation are talking to cadets and veteran officers about the need to report colleagues who have aligned themselves with white supremacists or far-right militants. The leaders are considering policies that would expressly prohibit officers from affiliating with such groups.

“I think we are all pretty pissed off right now that we have cops thinking it’s okay to storm our nation’s Capitol,” he said. “Those people are absolute traitors to our nation, to our oath of office.”

Are they waiting anxiously for Andy Ngo's new book? Unfortunately, Powell's won't carry it in store because pseudo-progressives who only believe in free speech that they agree with threw a hissy fit.

Meet the Youth Liberation Front behind a militant marathon of Portland protests
Be like water, keep moving.

If you see someone smashing windows, shut the (expletive) up.

Walk, don’t run. Hold the front and back lines.

Well after protests against police have faded in many American cities, the Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front has emerged in Portland as a persistent militant voice, using social media to promote rallies, and offering tactical advice and commentary on gatherings that often have ended in confrontations with the police and arrests.
‘Lives hang in balance’ from ‘planned coordinated attacks’
“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating,” he said, “You are attempting to commit murder.”
But their cause is just so it's not a big deal.

FYI - I love Powell's and it has it's own coffee shop. ;)

Haven’t been there in 30 years. Bloody capitalists!

Are you sure Ngo’s book isn’t in the fantasy or children’s sections?

And PNYLF is not a very catchy acronym...at all. Unless you’re into Pacific Northwest yehtis.

You're missing out on the greatest bookstore in the country.

I'm sure Ngo's book has some bias but I would bet that there is a lot of truth in it as well. Truth that AnTiFa would like to label as fantasy. Good work supporting their cause!

Your argument that BLM/AnTiFa rioters weren't geared up (they brought accelerants to try and burn people alive) and coordinating their efforts has been debunked. What's next?

Actually, it'd probably be ANTIFA, because using their typical tactics they'd throw about 25 jagoffs into the ring against one conservative, sucker punch him a couple times til he fell to the ground, then stomp his head several times, kick him in the ribs, then run off like little bitches. :coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

While I vehemently disagree with his last statement, he has ONE thing to thank for the inability to root out those types of individuals: UNIONS.
