Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 02, 2020

Black-clad figures break windows, set fires, vandalize police cars, then melt back into the crowd of peaceful protesters. When the police respond by brutalizing innocent demonstrators with tear gas, rubber bullets and rough arrests, the public's disdain for law enforcement grows. It's Asymmetric Warfare 101.

Rightwing protesters are so much better. They just drive their pick up trucks into large crowds of liberals and try to kill or injure as many as they can.

The guy who did this to the Minneapolis AutoZone still hasn't been arrested.

The cops are (siding with) the "anarchists."

"The ability to continue to spread and to eventually bring more violence, including a violent insurgency, relies on the ability to hide in plain sight"

This is LeftCoastLawyer's way of begging to live in a Big Brother surveillance state.

An anarchist responds to the NYT Op/Ed:

crimethinc.com

Apart from the willfully poor-quality "research" in this absurd report, its framing and conclusions are lifted straight out of Attorney General Barr and Fox News's playbook. When anarchists call out state violence, accuse them of being violent for doing so; when anarchists share non-violent self-defense tactics, cite this as evidence of violent intent; make spurious comparisons between diametrically opposed groups based on superficial similarities to heighten fear; pack in some misleading numerical data, and conclude by projecting sensationalized fantasies of apocalyptic violence to justify repression.

Did they ever arrest "Umbrella Man," who smashed the Autozone and lit fires to kick off the Minneapolis riots? heavy.com

Oh boy. It's an opinion piece

Opinions aren't facts

This one in particular seems especially fictitious The excessive linking to other obscure, unverified websites and supposed "anarchist publications" as of factual information is downright insulting

Any clown can get an option piece onto print
I guess that's why leftcoastoecentrelawyer is so convinced as to blurt out "it has to stop"

LeftCoastLawyer isn't even pretending to be a liberal any more, now he just does right-wing drive-bys like Maverick and Boaz.

Actually I take that back.
Boaz sometimes sticks around and fights it out, more that LeftCoastLawyer does.

Some of us work, Snoofy, instead of sitting around and waiting for our unemployment benefits to recharge our EBT cards.

Exactly, with a member of the NYT Editorial Board now calling this out it is clear that the actions of the anarchists are only helping Trump get re-elected. But hey, if that is okay by Chief, Snoofy and Truthhurts, then they better not complain on November 4.
