That didn't prove a thing. Did you bother reading your own link?

I am almost convinced that LCL is nothing but a sock puppet of ROC - just like he revealed long ago when he mistakenly answered a post directed at ROC under the LCL moniker.

But nonetheless, counselor has a reading comprehension problem that needs correcting. Posting a link to a website of group does not negate what the federal prosecutor reported about whether or not the charged acts of vandalism and violence in Portland could be attributed to ANY organized group known as antifa. And again, this is what was stated:

U.S. federal prosecutors have produced no evidence linking dozens of people arrested in anti-racism protests in Portland, Oregon, to the antifa or anarchist movements....
Ergo, "Prosecutors Find No Antifa" is not only accurate, it is the undisputed truth as it regards the protests in Portland - the sole topic of this thread.

But, but, but if we can't demonize Antifascists then who do we get to demonize?


It's not like we have white nationalists and Nazis working right in the White House. Oh wait...

You haven't looked hard enough. Talk to all of them again, and if that doesn't work, waterboarding might. What you found doesn't fit our required fact pattern...

You're all in on the idea that there was no evidence of collusion between Trump administration and Russian officials, but you refuse to acknowledge that there's no evidence of a violent organization at the heart of these riots named Antifa?

"We have not alleged defendant affiliation with any specific groups or ideologies in our cases stemming from recent Portland protests," said Kevin Sonoff, the spokesman. "Our cases focus purely on the criminal conduct alleged."

From how I read it, they weren't interested whether they were or not. Just focused on the criminal conduct.
