IMPORTANT, GREECE HAS TALENT!!!! VIDEO UPDATE BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what the fuck is going on in America these days? The fucking left has done so much to destroy our nation they’ve finally managed to make us Weimar Germany. The fucking brownshirts are out to stop anybody they disagree with. This is about that Berkeley protest where the Anti-Fa (fascists) went with the express purpose of attacking people they disagree with.
Via Mike we see this guy who knew what to expect so he prepared. He realizes he’s no longer in the America we grew up in.
Those Nike batting helmets are light, but they work! I took a rock to the top of my head yesterday that probably would have had me out.We also tested it before the saturday with a could of good smacks to the sides and back with both dowels and 1x3s. The impact jerked your head, but it protected against the pain and did a reasonable job of getting the blow to skate along the curves of the helmet…
Gloves are necessary as well. I started out with my motorcycle gloves, but lost them when I took them off to put some gauze on the fellow (who was) smack(ed) with the soda. Even though I didn’t take a hit in the hands, I still learned why I needed them after the rally when I was heading back home. I didn’t get pepper sprayed directly, but I did go through the clouds a couple of times and helped a few guys holding their head back when they were getting their eyes washed out. Pepper spray residue was all over my hands and when I took off my mask, helmet and goggles, I instinctively wiped my lips. Noob mistake that would have been mitigated if I was wearing gloves. I’m glad there were no cameras to capture my “it’s too spicy” dance.
It’s Weimar days folks, can 700% inflation be far behind?

The police, of course, were not going to even pretend to perform their jobs. The link is a minitrue outlet in CA, so they’re doing their jobs.
Before the brawling began, officers stationed themselves at the entrances to downtown’s “Peace Park.” They searched bags and confiscated all sorts of items that could be used for fighting: a stun gun, shields, poles, sticks, knives, mace, bear spray. Even “weaponized Pepsi” — soda cans filled with concrete.
I wonder who was carrying that stuff? I’m gonna bet most of the weapons were from the fascist leftists, they were the ones using clubs and pepper spray after all.
Around 11:15 a.m., someone in the crowd threw what would be the one of many flashbang grenades deployed throughout the day. The orange mesh fence was quickly trampled and a brawl broke out.
“someone in the crowd”, someone in the leftist/fascist crowd you mean.
After nearly two hours of street fights near the park, the momentum shifted when the crack of a flashbang sounded, followed by another loud explosion that filled the air with smoke. The AntiFa demonstrators ran north toward Berkeley Square, with the alt-right supporters in pursuit.
Alt-right is so you know who the bad guy is.
But read that again, 2 hours of rioting.
I love this bit
But, with “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” — a song associated with the American Civil War
You know them Trump supporters are all Confederates! don’t you? They left out which side used it, but when today’s totally tolerant fascists hear “Civil War” they think Confederates and their Dem forebearers losing their slaves.
The groups continued to spar in Downtown Berkeley in the midst of oncoming traffic and Saturday brunchers. Cars caught in the fray tried to drive through as hundreds filled the intersection at Shattuck and Center. Two bicycle cops finally closed the two northbound lanes but left southbound ones open for the next half hour, despite the continuing flow of demonstrators making their way toward the intersection.
Why did nobody stop this?
Where were the police? Why were they allowing these fascists to shut down others’ free speech? Because it’s free speech the State of California is against. Duh.
Other than closing the intersection for traffic, Berkeley police didn’t actually intervene in the scuffle until much later, around 3:30pm. By then, the numbers had thinned and the crowd’s energy was waning.
Oh, our fine fascist foot-soldiers are done? Let’s get to clearing this up!
The statement also emphasized that Berkeley Police “and the City as a whole worked to protect people’s right to free speech and simultaneously keep people safe,” a sentiment reiterated by Officer White. Still, police were virtually absent for hours throughout what’s now being called “The Battle of Berkeley.”
Who you gonna believe? The fires and destruction around our fine, tolerant city or our selfless police who were just trying to let their fascists shut up the haters?
The Battle of Berkeley.
So as we contemplate how our fine betters do not understand how we got Trump and are busily working on finding out what’s next, we can at least reflect on how the Battle of Berkeley ended on a lefty fascist getting a wedgie.
