Mac asks We answer

As stated previously the best solution to protester violence 99 times out of 100 is the use of a police officers night stick. If protesters are committing acts of violence than appropriate force is warranted. If the danger warrants it in rare cases
the use of lethal force is appropriate.

The Constitution does allow the peaceful practice of free speech. This does not include looting, arson and assault of law enforcement officers. At Kent State all three conditions existed. The problem was that those who were killed were apparently
too far back to have been the instigators. The people throwing rocks at the national
guard deserved to be shot.

The problem with government is that they are willing to use law enforcement tools against unpopular protesters. The Clinton administration did use the RICO statutes against the anti abortion movement which was largely peaceful. RICO should be used to make communist and anarchist leaders responsible for the acts of violence they sanction.

I have zero sympathy for protesters who pick a fight with cops. A few rounds with a night stick typically delivers the message. In Canada the police should be encouraged to use appropriate force if they are threatened or anarchists are looting. They also should be required to pay for their own hospitalization.

The key word here is peaceful protest. This is quite different from a riot. Peaceful
protest is part of our protected rights. If law enforcement does not act decisively
these riots may go on for days. At the time of Kent State America was fed up with the violence sparked by Communist agitators. The sentiment at the time was people who throw stones at people with guns deserve their fate.

How is it that leftist protesters magically acquire Molotov cocktails and bricks to throw at cops in their transformation from "peaceful protesters" to violent anarchists?

Well, duh. They brought their weapons and planned to use them before they even got to their protest site.

Leftists are violence prone, as is the usually the case with any group pathologically incapable of intellectual pursuits.

How do these people manage to to travel to all these events and then spend days out there "protesting"? It's a big deal for me to take a couple of days off from work, but apparently not for them. But then I do have a job, a family, and personal responsibilities I must meet. I doubt if any of those "protesters" do. They are probably there on mommy and daddy's dime, or someone like a George Soros organization is putting up the cash for them to go.

Where have you ever seen Molotov's being thrown. At the same protest where you claim you saw a flag burned you liar?

Wonder where yeagley gets his money to be Anti-Indian and Anti-America, takes money to take a trip to Washington and stay three days and nites.

Holding a garage sales is out of the question since he claims he has all his clothes from the 70s'. He must have a Sugar daddy or Sugar mommy somewhere in the closet!

Wow, what do you know? Somebody ought to catalog all these different myths about the left the right has been viciously spreading about them.

Ten years from now we are going to be hearing about the left's staunch support for the Vietnam War and their great abiding love for the Constitution, God, and Richard Nixon.

Good point Gator!

So how can Communist be the worker’s party when it seems none of the young Communist work? lol

As for anarchist, from what I gather is anarchist basically believe most governments are Fascist and they are anti-corporation, anti-capitalism, anti-commercialization, everybody is opressed and so on. They tend to have a communal lifestyle. Perhaps work part time or with some kind of co-opts. Some get money from their parents of course not all parents know what their kids are up to. Probable a few trust fund babies. Funny thing is some anarchist are anti-Authoritarian regime such as China. Hmmm, Communist against China.

But what do you expect from anarchist, they eventually end up against everything. It’s kind of like that line in the movie “The Wild One”; Mildred said, “What're you rebelling against, Johnny?” and Johnny replies, “Whaddya got?”

What amazes me is that a bunch of anarchist can organize. Wouldn’t an anarchist organization be an oxymoron?
