But anyway....Why are you even talking about Antifa since you and Nadler assert it is a myth ?
Nadler didn't say Antifa is a myth. He said violence caused by Antifa in Portland is a myth that is being spread in Washington.

I think he's most likely talking about Twitter, Apple and Amazon. They're kicking Trump and his CHUDs off their platforms, so in his mind they're suppressing their freedom of speech. He doesn't realize that those privately owned platforms can decide who can and can't use them, without amounting to a violation of their free speech rights. If someone goes into a restaurant and makes a mess, harasses other patrons and damages the furniture, if the owner tells him he's not welcome back, he isn't suppressing his right to food.

No joke. That's certainly fair. And just because none have actually been found so far (all those reactively identified by some Trumper websites as "antifa" have proven not to be) doesn't mean none were there.

But here's the problem with that. Nobody held a gun to Trump supporters' heads and made them follow any handful of "provocateurs". No one or two people attacking the police made the entire crowd turn on the police en masse. Nobody forced them into the Capitol Building, and nobody forced them to chance "Hang Mike Pence" while they were doing it.

Agreed.


There are reasons to suspect Antifa agents...the guy smashing the window (where the women got shot) was also filmed agitating the crowd immediately after, and then it looks like he goes to his backpack a few steps away and changes clothes, maybe. But thats not clear.

Is it just me or should the reverse of insurgents be exsurgents?

It doesn't sound like Tintin and the Picaros. Alcazar and his picaros had been in the jungle much longer than a week.

The question is, are you Trump supporter, an Antifa agent provocateur pretending to be a Trump supporter, or a police infiltrator pretending to be an Antifa agent provocateur pretending to be a Trump supporter?

We can't rule out "Russian disinformation agent pretending to be a police infiltrator pretending to be an Antifa agent provocateur pretending to be a Trump supporter" at this stage.

An old Richie Rich comic book. When I was a kid, my father worked at a paper mill and would bring home bags full of stripped comic books that had been brought in for recycling, so my reading then was a lot more eclectic than when I later became an active collector.

Are there any journalistic efforts underway to see what percentage of those arrested or being sought are legitimate Trump supporters? Don't shoot me. I'm just trying to be a good skeptic and look for evidence.

I've been asking my Facebook friends why Trump was so easy to dupe if it was antifa that invaded the capitol. Trump did say he loved the rioters and told them to go home. So far I have not received any kind of explanation from them.

So, does this mean that the Trumpkins and Q-Tips are not actually capable or starting a riot by themselves and need a bunch of softy lefties to do it for them?

Did they never listen to The Clash? "White riot, I wanna riot, a riot of my own".

That's stupid. If ANTIFA had been involved the protesters would have been violent and the police would have not.

I really like the capitalizing of ANTIFA. I can almost see Tucker Carlson screaming it.

Is it supposed to make them look like HYDRA or something? It's a bunch of guys who don't want neo-Nazis in their community, and push back when neo-Nazis come in. They are not Dr Evil's henchmen.

Didn't you know it stands for Association for Nefariousness, Terrorism, Insurrection, Fear and Asparagus, thus representing all of the five greatest scourges of democracy?
