    Your city and culture sucks for many different reasons. Enjoy your Chinese occupation, your tower of Babel, your soy infused everything, and your unrelenting attacks on self expression. Your region is cursed and a blight upon mankind.

    Today is just as biased and agenda based as usual. I wish we we could go back to an era when the media was objective. Just give me ALL the facts and let me decide.

    Wait a minute Today, Antifa is not an anti-fascist group! These people use fascist tactics, they literally use fear and violence as a means to keep people from expressing their own freedoms! How can you honestly call this group anti-fascist? You've twisted the narrative in favor of domestic terrorist. Domestic terrorism or homegrown terrorism is a form of terrorism in which victims "within a country are targeted by a perpetrator with the same citizenship" as the victims.[1]There are many definitions of terrorism, and none of them are universally accepted. The United States Department of State defined terrorism in 2003 as "premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience." That is what Antifa does! How can you not see and condemn these people for what they are!

    Portland Protests: 13 Arrested After Groups Clash With Police | Sunday TODAYThe important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs,

    the title of "Antifascist" is such a brilliant use of propaganda, it has been a smashing success. Have you seen a single news outlet that refers to this group by its actual political leaning; anarcho communist?? conservatives vs anarcho communists? no, just "right wingers vs "antifascists"". No one has the spine to point out that the label of antifascist is one that has been bastardized throughout the 20th century, its meaning robbed from those who genuinely fought real fascists for the survival of their liberal democracy, robbed by communist groups who used the label to justify taking over those same countries the same way fascist groups used communism as the excuse to take over other countries. The Berlin Wall was actually called the "Anti Fascist Protective Wall" by the Soviet government, though it was built long after fascism was defeated in WWII, the "fascism" they were protecting their people from was the liberal democracy and growing prosperity on the other side of the wall that they built, and the claim of guarding against "fascism" was the excuse used to shoot any citizen who dared to try to escape to the much more prosperous side or engage in thought crime against the communist state. Call Antifa what they are. They don't fight against fascism, they fight for anarcho communism and they will use the lie of fighting fascism to justify bashing your head in if you don't like their radical politics.

    Hate speech IS free speech. Labeling anyone who gathered on the side that opposes antifa as 'right wing extremists' you guys need to catch up normal citizens that are anything but far right take issue with antifa and their tactics. They need to.be demasked and then there will be a non issue. They really are cowards who are hiding behind the safety of anonymity and they need to be forced to stand behind their actions!!!!
