Antifa also threw glass bottles, rocks, and eggs at a line of police officers attempting to maintain order. A video tweeted by Fox5’s Paul Makarushka shows a large group of Antifa counter-protesters attempting to surround a group of Trump supporters. One man is seen waving an Antifa flag over the head of one of the Trump supporters. Another can be seen wielding a baseball bat.

    As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, former New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong, who wants to know if white people are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins” because of their “genetic disposition,” asked when Andy Ngo would be banned from Twitter for inciting violence. How does he incite violence? He posts the mugshots of far-left extremists online after they’ve been arrested. That has made day-to-day life uncomfortable for some rioters.Here’s Ngo at it again, reposting a video shot by Fox 5 San Diego’s Paul Makarushka of some people doing something. We don’t want to call them Antifa,...

    One of the most bizarre features of the alleged COVID-19 ‘global pandemic’ has been the mysterious disappearance of the seasonal flu in medical and public health record keeping. It’s as if the Flu just vanished into thin air after being the most common perennial seasonal respiratory virus.As it turns out, recorded seasonal influenza cases have literally nosedived by 98% across the globe.This improbable phenomenon has led a number of experts to ask, “Has Covid killed off the flu?”“The disappearing act began as Covid-19 rolled in towards the end of our flu season in March. And just how swiftly rates have...

    San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is changing its grading policies in an attempt to “make them more anti-racist.” The new grading removes “non-academic factors,” with the school district using the example of turning in homework late. “For months, the district has been working on multiple areas of its operations, including grading, in efforts to make them more anti-racist and equitable, partly in response to social justice protests that erupted over the summer in response to George Floyd’s death,” reported the San Diego Union-Tribune. Now, the school district’s new grading system will no longer take into account what the district...

    Students will no longer be graded based on a yearly average, or on how late they turn in assignments. Those are just some of the major grading changes approved this week by California's second-largest school district. The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is overhauling the way it grades students. Board members say the changes are part of a larger effort to combat racism... Academic grades will now focus on mastery of the material, not a yearly average, which board members say penalizes students who get a slow start, or who struggle at points throughout the year. Another big change,...

    SAN DIEGO — For the second time in as many months, the City of San Diego has removed Black Lives Matter artwork drawn by children in La Jolla. City workers showed up Wednesday and told neighbors the chalk drawings were being removed because the city was getting too many complaints.
