Now that you’ve seen the Washington Post’s story on what happened in Berkeley, here is a different take – from Ian Miles Cheong, writing for dailycaller.com…and with pictures and videos to back his reporting up.
Here is the beginning of Mr. Cheong’s article:
Members of the extremist left-wing movement “Antifa” and the Democratic Socialists of America swarmed the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park in Berkeley, Calif. in a demonstration against a “March Against Marxism” rally that never happened.
Black-clad belligerents carrying red flags reportedly assaulted bystanders and turned their ire on largely passive police officers who were standing by to monitor the situation. Many participants called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. Some carried rainbow banners with recent tweets by Chelsea Manning like “We Got This.”
The “March Against Marxism” was a planned protest that had nothing to do with the alt-right, but it was canceled after receiving threats from the militant leftist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). BAMN claimed it was a “neo-Nazi” rally, but the rally itself was organized by a transgender woman and other like-minded people who opposed the spread of Marxism in Berkeley.
Despite the cancellation, some Marchers showed up to interact with Antifa, but were harassed and assaulted.
And now, please use the link I’ve provided above, to see the pictures and videos of these thugs running at and attacking people who dared to think they had a right to think differently from antifa anarchists.
Then tell me what your opinion is of that Washington Post article I posted earlier…and of media’s reporting about “antifa” in general. Try to keep it clean. .
