Rally against Trump impeachment escalates to physical confrontations w/ Antifa counterprotesters
The Tulsa World ^ | October 17, 2019 | Harrison Grimwood

A rally attended by about 5 or 6 dozen people in support of President Donald Trump as he faces an impeachment inquiry quickly escalated to physical confrontations and violence when counterprotesters unfurled Anti-Fascist flags.

There were fewer than a dozen counter protestors flying green "Antifa International" flags. The physical violence amounted to pushing, grabbing, body blocking and, at one point, a tug-of-war over a flag.

Blame for the escalation to physical violence was mutual. Tulsa police arrived to separate the protesters and counterprotesters.

"I think that a lot of people hate America and hate freedom, which is why they protest President Trump," said Jarrin Jackson, a former 2nd Congressional District candidate who emceed the rally. "It's sad that they don't know better. They don't like freedom, and so the enemies of freedom will try to use violence to silence people that love it."

When will the “news” people get it through their thick skulls?

“Antifa” is not and never has been a protest. It is thugs looming for Americans to victomize.

The media knows full well who Antifa is and what their goals are.

They are fellow komrads in the struggle.

Antifa is funded by Soros and Romney to attack
innocent people and conservatives whom they hate.

"the "news" people"

Antifa may be Mercs. The msm knows this and may be encouraging them.

Some Antifa do not need to be paid to participate and are phycopaths or sociopaths.

I wonder if the President will declare Antifa a domestic terrorist organization any time soon? I know his plate is full but I sure would like to see that come about....;)

I suspect that 99% are psychopaths and/or sociopaths.

Belgian Malinois dogs.
They call them Maligators due to their joyful willingness to bite.

Good. It’s about time our side got over it’s damn Niceness Disorder.

And spare me the *then we’ll be no better than they are* crap. We’ve done it your way for decades and look at where it’s gotten us.

You don’t crush terrorists by sitting on your candy asses arguing about procedural rules.

If they want a street fight, we’ll give them one. They’re nothing but Soros shills who stand for nothing. If we can’t beat them back, we should be ashamed of ourselves.

I wonder if many of the armed antifa are CIA mercenaries? Hell, the whole thing may be a CIA op, and they have little difficulty pulling in dopey leftists to serve as human shields for the mercs who are orchestrating them.

Just so you know:

Jarrin Jackson is my nephew. He will appear on KFAQ in five minutes. If you have Amazon Echo, you just say, “Alexa, play KFAQ.”
