    Antifa are domestic terrorists and should be treated as such.

    Shouldn't white nationalist groups be labeled as domestic terrorists as well? How about all the gun wielding protesters who showed up on the steps of government buildings to protest the stay at home orders?

    Yes they should but why stop there, a lot of the white nationalist groups are already listed on the FBI gang lists as well as the hispanic and black and every other problem ones make all of them terrorists. It would be racist to just go after the white nationalist groups.
    The armed protesters were just protesters that were having a peaceful protest and isn't that their part of their rights their?
    Was anyone shot or injured there during the gun wielding protest?
    Was there rioting and looting?
    I am not that familiar with this incident?

    I'm not going to bother trying to break this all down to you - there are tons of article available about all of this and why it is ridiculous to call the antifa movement a domestic terrorist group.

    Okay I am not familiar with the demonstration but I do know this much.
    I am right.
    • The Gun wielding group were within their rights.
    • No one was hurt by them
    • There was no rioting
    • Or looting

    boingboing : Here is a picture I'm uploading that explains exactly how much I care about explaining to you about how you're wrong. This picture is based off various political discussions I've had with "big C" Conservatives over the years and the amount of hope I have that they'll listen to new information and actually think about things:

    Meanwhile, in North Carolina...

    ‘We are just gonna go out and start slaughtering them’: Three cops fired after racist talk of killing black residents

    Sitting in his patrol car in Wilmington, N.C., Officer Michael “Kevin” Piner predicted Black Lives Matter protests would soon lead to civil war. “I’m ready,” Piner told another officer, adding that he planned to buy an assault rifle.

    “We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them fucking n------,” he said.

    The shocking threat came amid extended, openly racist conversations between Piner, 44, and two other police officers, 50-year-old Cpl. Jesse E. Moore II, and 48-year-old Officer James “Brian” Gilmore. In the discussions, taped by accident on a patrol car camera and released Wednesday by the department, the men freely drop racial slurs, suggest killing black residents and deride protesters.


    “Wipe 'em off the fucking map,” Piner said of African Americans. “That’ll put 'em back about four or five generations.”

    <snip>

    The two then complained about black officers on the force, calling one a “piece of shit” and complaining that another was “sitting on his ass” during the protests. “Let’s see how his boys take care of him when shit gets rough, see if they don’t put a bullet in his head,” Piner said.

    Piner soon left to check out an alarm, investigators found. Later, Moore, who also was hired in 1997, called him to describe a recent arrest of a black woman, repeatedly calling her a racial slur.

    “She needed a bullet in the head right then and move on,” Moore said of the woman. “Let’s move the body out of the way and keep going.”

    Later, while complaining about a black judge whom Moore called a “fucking negro magistrate,” Moore added, “It’s bad man because not all black people are like that.”

    “Most of 'em,” Piner responded.

    “90 percent of 'em, Kevin, 90 fucking percent of 'em,” Moore said.

    Soon, Piner turned the conversation to his belief that a civil war was imminent and his intention to buy high-powered weaponry. After saying he was ready to “slaughter” black people, he added, “God I can’t wait."

    This is amazing: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/23/us/portland-protest-tear-gas-mayor.html

    1. Portland mayor finally joins protestors to talk about the demands around things, mostly met with skepticism, but in general, things kept peaceful.
    2. Federal agents tear gas the protest, including the mayor. The mayor, after experiencing this, says he will stop police from using this type of tactic.
    3. Mayor retreats to his office where protestors follow him to continue protests ... and the police use tear gas on the protestors.

    Jee-bus.
