From news reports, it seems the Antifa goobers are going to try to recreate another Portland in Seattle. The ground for that looks fertile. You have a city council that might as well wear black ski masks and carry Molotov cocktails. You have a police force that is walking on eggshells because it knows it will be scapegoated by the political establishment if they resist. This is the police department that meekly surrendered one of its precincts to the fascists who created the dystopic hell hole that was CHAZ. You have a surfeit of privileged, dumpy, whitebread fascists now that the coffee shops are closed and they can draw enhanced unemployment payments while hanging out in Mom’s basement in the Che Guevara t-shirt and plotting the revolution.
The real question in Seattle and in Portland is how long are the average citizens going to put up with this clown show coming into their neighborhoods and upsetting their lives.
If this awesome video from Seattle is any indicator, the answer is “not very much longer.”
Update: here’s a video of the Every Day March bike brigader being attacked last night in the northgate area. He seems to be a garbage man. Feel free to share the video to help identify the racist yelling we “we out of his neighborhood”. TW: physical assault #seattleprotests https://t.co/C1GsUicgQg pic.twitter.com/C8TLZEtdjH

Note how his friends stand idly by as he gets his ass kicked. These, ladies and gentlemen, are the people who think that we should be afraid of them. These are the people who think they should be running the country.
Here is the handiwork of the motorist. Nice job dotting this cretin’s eyes. I hope this douchebag learned a valuable life lesson from this, but I’ve always been the glass-half-full type.
This is John Henry, a member of Seattle's Bike Brigade, one of the most selfless orgs in the city. They put themselves on the line, day and night, to protect protesters. John was attacked at a march last night in North Seattle while standing in the bike line. This is not okay. pic.twitter.com/8pOhUPs6Nd

As a rule, I’m not a fan of vigilante justice, but when the police are afraid to enforce the laws and keep communities safe and free of disruptive trash, then it falls upon the citizenry to band together to impose order. What was sort of disorienting in reading the comments was the number of people calling for this guy to be arrested knowing that they are the same douches who want to defund the police.
In my opinion, both authorities and citizens have acted with remarkable restraint when dealing with these would-be insurrectionists. Eventually, patience is going to run out and they are going to find out what it is to be treated like the vermin they are.
