One major political party in the US now believes that violence is OK. I find it hard to beleive, based on history, that this will have a peadeful ending.

Notorious fascist brawler and Proud Boy Alan Swinney found guilty on 11 of 12 charges related to attacks in Portland during fascist rallies. Multiple felony convictions seems likely to bring a long prison sentence for the out of town fascist that made a habit of touring the country to assault people.

A jury Tuesday found Alan Swinney, a self-proclaimed Proud Boy, guilty of assault, menacing and unlawful use of a weapon for pulling out a loaded revolver, firing paintballs and spraying bear mace at counterprotesters in Portland last year.

Prosecutors called him a “one man police force,” and “vigilante cowboy,” while Swinney and his lawyer argued he was just acting in self-defense against “agitators” who wouldn’t stop harassing him.

The charges stem from demonstrations on Aug. 15 and Aug. 22, 2020, when Portland police remained out of sight as clashes erupted between right-wing and left-wing groups armed with paintballs, bear mace, pepper spray, umbrellas and shields outside the Justice Center.

The jury found Swinney, 51, guilty of 11 of 12 charges: one count of second-degree assault, three counts of unlawful use of a weapon, two counts of unlawful use of mace, and one count each of pointing a firearm at another, attempted second-degree assault, fourth-degree assault, attempted fourth-degree assault and menacing.

It's really saying something that he managed to attract this kind of law enforcement woes, given the undeniable leniency that local cops grant to right wing agitators in the area. Plenty of other fascists have no problem getting away with broad daylight assaults on the regular, but Swinney was determined to put himself in the spotlight in a way that was impossible to ignore.

The public backlash against Swinney was so intense that Portland cops and the justice system finally had to do something about it.

I didn't know what the word "peadeful" meant, so I asked a search engine, which found these images.

Visualize whirled peas.
