By now many people have posted and many more presumably seen the footage (I think out of Portland but it’s not really important) where a cluster of “Antifa” rioters formed a human chain roadblock to keep regular people from being able to get to work. They’re asked nicely a few times to allow people through and eventually after some time they do, or someone manages to push through, I’m not sure. One of these working-class middle Americans turns back and berates the snobby self-important brats who are “fighting fascism” by keeping regular nonpolitical people from getting to work, and in response, she takes a swing at the guy. By which I mean, she punches first and connects. The guy, unfazed, punches her right back in the face. Some whiteknight rioter sticks his flag out and whacks the guy with it for about a second and a half before the guy easily tears it out of his hand and throws it to the ground, calling the rioter a real big man because he can start a fight with a weapon, and there’s where the police intervene and break it up. And the Antifa rioters start demanding that the worker be arrested, declaring “he punched a woman in the face” and angrily lecturing the worker “you do not f***ing hit a woman!”
Excuse me, I thought that kind of attitude was patriarchal and sexist? And I thought you all hated the police?
This is comical on a whole lot of levels but it captures this whole Antifa/”Black bloc”/ whatever leftist group feels like throwing a tantrum in the streets mindset perfectly. Somewhere in their little brains it doesn’t quite register that if they were to try their nonsense stunts in, say, Iran, they’d be rounded up and imprisoned and if they were lucky that would be all. The very police who they protest against and chant about wanting to see them “fry like bacon” are the first place they run to when someone stands up to their street thug terrorism, and not only that, they are what prevents people like the worker (who they attacked first so he was completely justified in defending himself) from rolling up with a baseball bat and bashing his way through their little human chain.
In other words, they are rioting against the system and the society who they are relying on for protection. The beta male feminist who one minute is wearing his stupid pink knitted kitty ear hat in “solidarity” against the evils of the “patriarchy” will turn 180 degrees and become a paragon of chivalry a minute later if it suits him, and the rioters who demand dead cops and commit acts of domestic terrorism will go squalling to the selfsame police they chant about wanting dead when someone runs their roadblock or dares to fight back. You can’t have it both ways, children. If a woman wants to smash the patriarchy and sexism, guess what cupcake, the patriarchy is within its rights to smash back–and don’t expect them to pull their punches just because you’re a woman when you’ve spent decades telling them you shouldn’t be treated differently in any way than a man.
Despite the wailing children’s outrage, the police on scene did their jobs, more or less–they should have broken up the rioters’ roadblock sooner but there’s only so much manpower to go around. Contrary to the opinions of the outraged snowflakes, however, it was not the least bit inappropriate for the police to not arrest the guy who defended himself against these two Antifa dimwits. They started the physical altercation and he ended it with reasonable force. But you’re not far off from the point where the police are going to let you lie in the bed you make for yourselves, because frankly, we’ve had enough of you.
And for pity’s sake, get a dictionary and look up “fascism.” It’s not what you think it is.
