Default Protesters Storm Gov’t Building, Burn County Flag, Hoist ‘Antifa’ Flag

Will someone please explain what happened to the 'tolerant, peace-loving' group that could do no wrong?

Quote:
Leftist "Antifa" protesters stormed a county government building in Minnesota, seized and burned the county flag - then replaced it with an Antifa flag - on Monday. After left-wing protesters marched through downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota in response to last weekend’s demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia, they hoisted the flag of the violent left-wing group “Antifa,” raising it in front of the county’s government center. The Hennepin County flag was swapped with Antifa’s, a spokeswoman for the county confirmed to CNSNews.com

Here is the telling part of the article:

To her knowledge, no arrests were made.
Of course they weren't arrested, Minneapolis is a very left wing city. There are most likely many members of the county government that didn't really have a problem with it. And if experience with other left wing governments is any indication, the police were probably told to stand down and let them throw their temper tantrum. After all, they're not right wing so there is not problem.

Define irony: A group that claims that their goal is to eradicate fascism, using fascist tactics to intimidate those with which they disagree.

They are gone.

We now have college students and so-called adults still living in Mommy and Daddy's basements.

The only Democrats live in the Twin Cities.

The rest of the state is solidly right wing, but out numbered by the urban idiots.

African Muslims have been shipped up there for years now. Of course the vote Democrat for all the free sh1t they can get. One of the Muslims was allowed to be a police officer, and recently shot a Meditation instructor to death.

The left are so fuqing stupid in the twin cities the rest of the state would cut it off and send it down the Mississippi River if they could.

Regards, Kirk

So, you have no problem with people tearing down the County flag, and replacing it with one to represent their group. Which had nothing to do with the South, as you proclaim.

Let me take a wild guess here, but if a right wing conservative group had done the same, you would have your panties so far tied into a knot that your eyes would bulge.

Congratulations on displaying the true person you are.

SWJs have taken over for the anti-establishment sort, and taken it to a whole new level.

Tim Kaine's son, Woody, was arrested and charged after he and other Antifistas did some political mischief and disruption in St. Paul some months ago. I'm not sure what the disposition of charges are, but people will be arrested if forced to. I remember reading that he had squared off against the cops and then gave up.

And I am sure that there have been other people arrested after taking on the police. So what does that have to do with this specific incident?
