    The U.S. hasn't carpet bombed population centers since early in the Korean War.

    That "idiot" is Joe Biggs, one of the leaders of the Proud Boys and primary organizer of today's rally. He is what the Proud Boys are all about.

    And? He's still a fucking idiot. I don't support the Proud Boys. They are morons who do more damage to any cause they are with than not. :shrug:

    And I've seen plenty of pictures and video's of idiots on the left at today's rally. It's a simple fact that you're trying to craft a narrative that there are only idiots on the right by posting a picture of an idiot and than a picture of grandma.

    There are idiots on both sides.

    Rolling Thunder, Linebacker I & II do not fit the definitions of carpet bombing. Certainly not of population centers. I remember reading an analysis of the Vietnam War air campaigns back in the 1990s and it said that roughly 97% of U.S. bomb tonnage in the Vietnam War was dropped on rural areas.

    :lol: indeed! I'm sure your opponent won't have any head movement, and will stay within your range. He won't be ducking and dodging and popping in and out of your reach.
    Oh your opponent is not lacking depth perception and you don't have an 86" wing span and incredible strength/speed? :unsure: Then your techniques will get your ass handed to you. :yes:

    That's half or the reason I show up to these rallies, for the live action flame fest.
    The other half being of course, that these rubes are only out to harass and intimidate marginalized groups.

    Violence is just a bonus.

    the substantial difference, at least here, is that these alt right white power types tend to come in from places up to an hour away to stir up shit whereas the counter demonstrators are overwhelmingly local.

    Wouldn't you stand up for your neighbours?

    Joe Biggs lives in Florida. These rallies are attended by Proud Boys and supporters from all over the country. They come to Portland specifically because it is home to a number of Antifa groups, and they hope to provoke as much violence as possible.

    You don't see Antifa going to conservative suburbs and starting trouble. :marathon:

    you never know! :shrug: I'm sure I told the story before of when my wife had her full-blown mental breakdown in the summer of 2017 and thought that the actual son-of-god jesus in the flesh (or maybe in the spirit in his case) was fighting satan in a non-title lightweight MMA fight on our motel TV :unsure:. She was cheering for jesus but I don't remember who won. I think it went the full three rounds though.
    The whole month was a blur of wacky shit as her mind did a 180 and went full-speed into :unuts: town. :no:

    Portland has got to step things up. They have to make a confined peaceful protest area for both sides far apart from each other. If you are peacefully protesting then you are in your approved area. If you are protesting outside that area you are a rioter and are arrested. The police should be instructed not to make any decisions and that they will be fired and charged if they participate with either side. They simply arrest anyone outside their area and let them defend themselves in court. Any weapons present means you are there to riot, and you are arrested and charged.

    Neither antifa or the Nazis are the police, and neither are given power to police or confront the other side. Therefor they are rioters if they are pretending to be the opposing force fpor the public because they are not. The police and government have let this shit get way out of hand by playing with both sides. Thy have been caught working for the nazi side and they have been allowing the nazis to harass and intimidate locals, which has lead to antifa trying to play police, and that has turned into antifa mostly being there to fight in the streets. At this point if you are showing up on the antifa side you are showing up for a fight.

    By having two separate areas far apart from each other you give everyone a chance to say their words, and showing up outside of those areas means you are making a move towards fighting and that is not permitted. The police and town have to get their act in gear.

    I can understand why antifa feels the need to confront Nazis running around threatening people, but that is a failure of the police and town. Now this shit has to end. The Police are the ones responsible for keeping the peace. The town should have restricted protests to a smaller area. The Nazis have a right to have their chants and signs. That should have a defined public area at this point. The town did not get control of an offensive group. There has to be a public place for these protests, but that does not mean they wander all over town intimidating and harassing the general populace. You put them in a public park, and you tell people if they don't want to see this then go someplace else for the day.

    When you had certain nazis wandering around town doing illegal things you invite their opponents to start fighting because that is a riot. At this point both sides know the town is letting things be out of control so both sides are attracting people who want to get into a giant brawl. I am all for saying antifa people are showing up for a violent confrontation at this point, but so are the Nazis. It is time for the town to stamp it out on both sides. You cannot have the cops coordinating with the Nazis to go after antifa. We know that some of them are. That promotes a distrust in the police and lawlessness. The town has got to make a public example of the police and monitor their communications to prosecute and fire police who work with the nazis or antifa. The police have to be on their own side and controlling both sides.

    This is what happens when the authorities allow too much crap to go on, and have bias and prejudice. It would be the same if the police were caught working with antifa to bust the nazis. The town needs someone strong to root out the Nazis in the police, and to crack down on the fighting on both sides. One of the first steps should be any non-local caught making threats and arrangements for violence in town is given over to the TSA and busted the moment they step off a plane anywhere in Oregon. If I made a threat to harm @Tracker and then booked a plane ticket and took a flight to arkansas where I have no business at all, I would be arrested. I made an effort to make good on that threat, and I would have to answer for it in court. It is time to track and bust both sides of this issue given that is what the patriot act is for. Neither side has any business flying across the country to be in portland that day after making online arrangements to cause trouble.

    People that attack science should lose everything science brings them.

    For example, for Trump, no more cellphone, no more Twitter on any platform, no more Limo, no more Airforce One, or his private jets, no more flushing toilets or electricity in Trump Tower or Mar-A-Lago, no more ventilation systems in Trump Tower, so the top floors become uninhabitable and useless, no more taco salad shells because someone had to discover frying, no more utensils, no more clothes assembled by a sewing machine, no more cloth made from a weaving machine, no more toilet paper....

    You get the idea.
    Basically, send the fucker back to bear skins, eating with the same hands he wipes with, and only what he can pick or kill, and since he's a pussy, and can't hunt, or slaughter, he's down to blueberries.
    Raspberries would offer variety, but they have thorns, and again, he's a pussy.
    Oh, yeah, where's he gonna get the bearskins?
    Okay then, he's naked.

    I am more for saying if pollution from CO2 emissions is not bad or harmful then he can live on the exhaust from a hummer, along with all his science denying right wing buddies.

    Supporting them (or anybody, for that matter) would actually require Dayton/Tracker/Samuel to get off his ass and actually do something..
