Well, if you ever wanted to kick some Antifa ass, here was your chance. The Berkeley cops were apparently issued a ‘stand down’ order which meant they mostly maintained a ‘hands off’ policy in trying to break up the many brawls that occurred during the event.
Notice that cops are only given a ‘hands off’ policy when liberals are protesting violently, but the same would never be given to any politically conservative group that did the same. In fairness, though, conservative groups are not known for committing acts of violence and vandalism during their protest rallies. Only liberals are given a pass for their anarchist ways.
In a way, I sort of admire the situation. Think of it – the authorities are actually permitting patriotic Americans the opportunity to kick the snot out of radical Leftists and, specifically, the Antifa butt-boys! What’s there not to like about that?
