    Yesterday, at the anti-Alt-Right rally in Berkeley, I watched groups of masked Antifa members in Black Bloc formation swarm individuals who were apparently antagonizing them, and pummel them with their fists, feet, and flagpoles.

    When the victims tried to escape, they were run down, and in at least one case, cut off by the Antifa mob and beaten down some more. In the incidents I witnessed, about five or six Antifa members at a time participated in the attacks, while perhaps 50 others stood behind them, forming an impenetrable wall that blocked bystanders from intervening, or documenting the violence on camera. Those people would also help chase the victims when they fled.

    In one case, as a crowd of non-Black Bloc protesters yelled at the assailants to let their victim go, an Antifa activist yelled, “He’s a Nazi!” over and over again, justifying the assault. Then, abruptly, maybe after realizing that the victim was not, in fact, a white nationalist, he changed his mantra. “He doesn’t have to be a Nazi!” he now shouted.

    The suggestion was that even if the victim wasn’t a fascist, he still deserved to be beaten. For what was unclear. Maybe because he supported Trump? Or he objected to Antifa’s tactics? Or refused to do something they ordered him to do? Who knew? The only thing those of us watching from a few yards away could tell was that a man, by himself, was on the ground, with a bloodied face, covering his head with his arms, being kicked and punched by a group of masked people, who were shielded by dozens of their comrades.

    My guess is that a lot of the Antifa people in the crowd who were passively assisting in the violence, including the guy yelling that he was a Nazi, didn’t know anything more than that, either.

    So, how do the tactics of these Antifa gangs of thugs differ from those of the Gestapo during the Nazi rule?

    System is breaking down. Anger being thrown at some hapless folks. Trump is correct when he says what he says. Hope is that at some point these guys realize they are being played by the same guys at the top. Koch Bros and Soros are the same crooks at the top of the food chain.

    I think that 90% of these clowns are just your everyday loser that's found a new act to follow. I'm guessing a lot of them were Bernie people angry at Trump because the DNC screwed him and then paid him to go away.

    Well there is a workable solution to preventing this kind of violence. Usually p vssies like this only like violence when they're the ones doing the hitting. Most of these idiots have never gotten punched in the face or had their ass beat when they were growing up so when the cops start breaking out their night sticks and splitting their skulls open before arresting them for assembling in the first place, my guess is you will never see of them again. Really any azzhole who covers their face and joins in a mob has issues and needs punishment of both the physical and containment(jail)kind.
    This stuff would go away in about a few days if this policy were taken imo.

    It's all unforeseen, from both sides.

    Lack of leadership is astounding.

    They don't differ in terms of tactics.

    Is there a non- ugly side to Antifa?

    No. None at all which is damning to the intelligence of our press and leadership.

    This is actually a big step for Avatar. He is returning (ever so slightly) to reality.

    Give him time.

    Hell no! And they look like terrorists from their appearance. if they came on an airplane that I was on just one of them there would be a real problem.

    These look like run-of-the-mill meth users to me. I suspect they would take anyone's money.
