This is typical Trump - illegal, unconstitutional policy based on a pack of lies.

Anyone who was praising Barr as ‘such a consummate professional’ before he was confirmed as AG has got to realize now - if they already did not know this - that Barr is all in for Trump and dictatorial rule.

Well, the republicans doing all this saves the democrats from having to.
Remember the last great demonstration? RIP Occupy Wall Street. It was non-violent and caused no direct destruction; Obama put Occupy in a box and squashed it.

Again, in the words of MLK: “riots are the voice of the unheard.”

Antifa = anti-facist. There are degrees of Antifa, will the authorities, et al, be carrying charts/rulers?

Some Antifa groups date the origins of their movement to fights against European fascists in the 1920s and 1930s. Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, says the modern American Antifa movement began in the 1980s with a group called Anti-Racist Action. Its members confronted neo-Nazi skinheads at punk gigs in the American Midwest and elsewhere. By the early 2000s the Antifa movement was mostly dormant - until the rise of Donald Trump and the alt-right.

Basically, this means that anyone calling themselves “anti-fascist”, or wears black or red and black, will be swept up. It’s the Palmer raids all over again - except that they will just shoot us instead of sending us to the Soviet Union.

I am anti-fascist.
I believe in democracy-a government of, for, and by the people.
Trump is an idiot child.

The cops are rioting in the meantime…

Journalists at several protests were injured, arrested by police while trying to cover the story

Hopefully, this will improve investigative journalism with regards to an actual organization as cops.

The similarities between the oratory of the Fuhrer in Nazi Germany and that of the new version in the United States of America could not be more pronounced.

The notion of being anti-fascist equating to terrorist would make Orwell proud.

How upside down can you get without being laughed off the stage?

Oh wait! This isn’t funny at all!

But, I guess we now have a public admission that Trump, Barr and the rest of their thugs are actually fascists. Trump, the master of never understanding or anticipating unintended consequences, strikes again.

Yesterday, I binge-watched Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land and read the writing on his guitar. Color me public enema number one.

I was just watching a Netflix series on the significant occurrences of World War II and it was like history repeating itself when they came to the rise of Hitler in the 20’s and what the country of Germany became after falling for his psychotic garbage. The chilling part was when one commentator said that the essential message of HItler and his National Socialists was “Make Germany Great Again”. It made me remember of Agolf Twitler’s first wife, Ivana, saying how he kept a book of Der Fuhrer’s speeches on the nightstand.
Look at that imperious expression on the Orange Pustule’s ugly face as he stands next to his whore AG, William Barr, an asshole who will puke all over the Constitution if Trump tells him to.
