The peaceful rally to Back the Blue was interrupted by the arrival of a black clad Antifa/BLM creeps and the police supporters were having none of it.
Things turned ugly as the pro-police group attempted to push the intruders out of the neighborhood with chants of “Commies go home!”
Police made several arrests. I watched a number of videos and it appears those arrested were on the side of Antifa/BLM.
The most important takeaway for me was to see this was happening, not on some big city street (like you saw in my post yesterday), but in a suburban neighborhood just like hundreds of thousands of other neighborhoods in America.
More of this is needed in my opinion. Where is a poster for every city in America that is suffering from the actions of illegal rioting/destructive punks?
From the New York Post, in case you aren’t hanging around twitter on a regular basis.
Trump tweets FBI wanted poster for protesters who tried to topple Andrew Jackson statue
President Trump on Friday tweeted out an FBI wanted poster picturing 15 unidentified suspects wanted in connection with the attempted toppling of a statue of Andrew Jackson in the capital — along with a stern warning.
“MANY people in custody, with many others being sought for Vandalization of Federal Property in Lafayette Park. 10 year prison sentences!” the commander-in-chief tweeted.
“The FBI’s Washington Field Office’s Violent Crimes Task Force, in conjunction with the United States Park Police, is interested in identifying several individuals who are responsible for vandalizing federal property in Lafayette Square,” the poster says, referring to the statue, which is a stone’s throw from the White House.
The feds ask anyone with information to contact the task force or their local FBI office.
This reminded me that I once downloaded an FBI poster of Most Wanted Islamic Terrorists, so I went to the FBI website and found that, yes, you can still download FBI posters like the one above.
Go here for the ‘Vandalization of Federal Property’ poster and see the many other posters you can get. You can get a little better look at the creeps!
The designation…presents a dire threat to the civil liberties of all citizens.

Surely you would not have imagined otherwise.
Like the three little monkeys, here is the Southern Poverty Law Center that sees no haters in a violent Antifa.
Designating Antifa as Domestic Terrorist Organization Is Dangerous, Threatens Civil Liberties
Antifa, short for anti-fascist, is a broad, community-based movement composed of individuals organizing against racial and economic injustice. Those who identify with the label represent a large spectrum of the political left. The Trump administration frequently uses the term to describe any group or individual that demonstrates in opposition to its policies. Far-right extremists use similar tactics.
The move by the president is an unprecedented and alarming development with significant implications for the civil liberties of U.S. citizens, particularly those of color, who are already disproportionately policed. The designation would grant federal law enforcement broad powers, under the federal terrorism code, to surveil and investigate anyone labeled as antifa. It could also allow federal law enforcement to broadly target anyone involved in protests viewed unfavorably by the Trump administration, even retroactively.
President Trump’s announcement is rooted in politics, not the present realities of the terror threat in the U.S. Classifying antifa as a domestic terror organization has been a wish-list item for the president’s allies on the far right and in the conservative mainstream for years. The designation retreads some of the darkest moments in our federal law enforcement’s past, further victimizes communities that have already been wronged and presents a dire threat to the civil liberties of all citizens.
Check out the link under the photo above to see how hard it would be (but not impossible) to get a terrorist designation accomplished and see this story from CNN (yes, CNN) to learn more about Antifa and what they want.
The exact origins of the group are unknown, but Antifa can be traced to Nazi Germany and Anti-Fascist Action, a militant group founded in the 1980s in the United Kingdom.
Modern-day Antifa members have become more active in making themselves known at public rallies and within the progressive movement, says Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.
“What they’re trying to do now is not only become prominent through violence at these high-profile rallies, but also to reach out through small meetings and through social networking to cultivate disenfranchised progressives who heretofore were peaceful,” Levin said.
While it can be difficult to distinguish Antifa activists from other protesters, some dress head to toe in black. Members call this the “Black Bloc.”
They also wear masks to hide their identities from the police and whomever they are protesting.
I’ve been writing lately about how the mainstream media is doing a great disservice to us.
Most Americans aren’t spending their whole days combing the internet for news and thus depend on the major media outlets to tell them what is happening in America.
Sadly, they are getting biased and incomplete information about issues that impact them and could ultimately affect the safety and well-being of their loved ones. Here Leo Hohmann tells us about a near complete black-out by the media power brokers about the shoot-out at an ICE detention center in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday. And, Hohmann makes a frightening prediction…. Continue reading “Media Virtually Silent on Antifa Attack on Saturday”→
