Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 16, 2017

As supporters of Donald Trump clashed violently with protesters demanding the release of Trump's federal tax returns at a protest in Berkeley, California, on Saturday, shocking video of a Trump supporter delivering a full-force, unprovoked "sucker punch" to the face of a young woman emerged and quickly went viral on social media sites.
The day was selected by protesters to highlight the fact that Trump has never released his tax returns, as has been customary for presidential candidates and presidents for the past 40 years. Trump is the first presidential nominee of a major party who refused to release his tax returns since 1976.

Though the pro-Trump demonstrators called themselves "free speech" advocates, witnesses said the group was comprised largely of extreme right-wing neo-Nazi and other white supremacist groups.

I'm not defending the punch, but it's not a sucker punch. The woman was looking right at him, involved in the melee and had ample opportunity to see the punch coming.

People use video of incidents like this to play the game Your Side is Worse Than My Side, but I tend to focus on something else: All the people who find themselves in the middle of a violent, out-of-control situation and are too foolish to get away.

Some of them are even bigger fools and choose to be violent.

I've had a few times in my life where I'm in a crowd and I sense that trouble is about to kick off. I put some distance between myself and the situation. It is always the smart thing to do. I've tried to teach my sons that.

Very similar, yet very different. Exactly like these two mobs of violent morons.

It's an old tactic of the Black Bloc and Leninists. Violently attack protestors. When they fight back, scream "fascist!"

The latest cynical technique of these totalitarians is to tell women militants to wear hijabs, and provoke a fight. Then scream "hate crime!" if they are so much as touched.

In "Stand your ground" states, people could shoot someone in this circumstance.

Basically this. The guy is still an ------- and most likely a coward who intentionally went after an easy target. But she was involved in the melee and was coming at him as much as he was coming at her. So not a sucker punch.

And as Rcade said, being involved in a situation where mob violence is definitely going to break out is a choice and not a smart one.

I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse.

It looks as if everyone one of these people was there to A) fight, or B) record the event on their iphone. Dummies fighting dummies. For decades it's been the Black Bloc out smashing store fronts and ATM machines. Now it looks like they're going to have to fight something that fights back. And it looks like they got their asses handed to them. but it'll be a while before I feel any sympathy for the Black Bloc.

Turns out she's a cam girl. Videos of her savaging her extremely hairy bush and rectum can be found online.

onlookers claim they saw a woman putting M80s (fireworks) inside glass containers, and throwing them at the rally

goers. So she was literally making IED's.

"if true"....always a caveat.....she should be arrested for terrorism or a minimum of attempting to do bodily harm.

to be more clear...the 'observed' objects were being thrown into trump supporters.....BUT THOSE are the 'neo-nazis'....

I'd say that claim was neo-nazi was'unbelievable' but I've been here before.
