Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 13, 2018

Mob rule has become the norm in parts of Portland, where local police have virtually turned a blind eye to Antifa's escalating antics. In two separate incidents over the weekend, an Antifa group in Portland attacked two older men in their cars after they disobeyed the group's traffic directions and tried to drive away.

Maybe because antifa aren't liberals?

Or better yet, I'll concede your argument once you own the behavior of abortion clinic bombings and neo nazis plowing Chargers through political protests as being "so much like Conservatives".

#1 Antifa isn't liberal; that's true. But somebody ought to tell THEM that. Look at who the faces of Antifa are. They're violent, self-absorbed idiots with a SERIOUSLY misplaced sense of moral superiority. They justify their violence with the rationale that anybody who doesn't toe their cockamamie party line is the enemy, and the enemy is to be dealt with violently.

They are the American Khmer Rouge.

Dems control the government in Portland.

If they wanted, they could stop this.

But they do not.

Vote Republican.

Anyone else notice that when Antifa does something that the neo-nazis would do they are suddenly anarchists?

I'm well aware what "anarchy" means, you should probably brush up on the political definition rather than Websters.

And thanks for proving my point, twice.

They're not anarchists, either. Claiming so gives them too much intellectual credit. Most Antifas wouldn't know Bakunin or Kropotkin if they bit ‘em on their butts. They are simply sactamonious, self-absorbed children with a penchant for reactionary thuggery.

We have plenty of jobs. Too many in fact and too few people to fill them (thanks ICE?).

Maybe you should start advocating for increased wages instead.

"an elderly man drove through a crowd of black-clad protesters,"

Was he charged with attempted vehicular homicide?

Or did they charge all the people making their Heather Heyer Fan Club auditions with jaywalking?

Anyway, let's get to the visceral details of the assaults. Be warned these injuries are very graphic:

First. "Several Antifa members began screaming profanity at the man, calling him a "white supremacist" and demanding he leave."

So one guy got screamed at. No word on which hospital is treating him for his First Amendment injuries. He's lucky they weren't Second Amendment injuries if you ask me!

Next, "Another video showed the group attacking a second man who had the audacity to ignore their directions, attacking his car with sticks, screaming profanity and jumping on top of his vehicle."

No word on any injuries he suffered in the assault. Though it seems like the injuries he suffered are probably best treated at Earl Scheib. In addition to the savage First Amendment assault which he might not have noticed, depending on his hearing aid.

Get well soon, old dudes!

Typical that Goofy conflates "Assault" with "Battery."

#23 What hateful, ageist sentiments for such a young man to harbor for the elderly. Shame. We're you raised in a household bereft of love? Is your soul a barren landscaper upon which love for you fellow human beings find purchase? Shame.

"conflates "Assault" with "Battery."

Outside of a courtroom those words are interchangeable.

From a legal sense I'm not sure either apply because neither man was touched.

#27 | Posted by snoofy at 2018-10-13 03:38 PM | Reply

"elderly."

We actually don't use this word any more. It's fallen out of favor as being perceived as carrying a host of negative connotations. Same with "senior." The term of art these days is "older."

These are just things I know because I'm not the negative stereotype you hastily cobbled together of me.

And they're things you don't know because your stereotype is a better relection of you than it is of me.

And you would be wrong, an assault is the fear of harmful or offensive touching, no such contact is required.

Good to know.
Sounds overly broad though.
Plenty of people have that fear through PTSD or just having psoriasis.

If shame is what it takes for fatties to lose some weight, well, I don't argue with success.

But I can understand if you'd rather be fat and proud than skinny and humble. I'm pretty sure you can understand it too.

I see. You've got conditions for who can be an anarchist.

Don't want to let any riff raff into the club?

They are simply sactamonious, self-absorbed children with a penchant for reactionary thuggery.

So. Anarchists.

Glad we cleared that up.

The difference is that liberals are cheering the actions of antifa. I haven't seen anyone cheering the actions of abortion bombers or people using their vehicles as weapons. You'd prefer to call antifa the heroes of liberals instead of actually being liberals. Sounds reasonable.
