That has happened many times in many cities. It's called police in riot gear

Can we talk about the skirt/shoe combo on this person?

Where's Chud?

Also, to be clear, college education for everyone is not the outcome we're seeking with this movement.

yeah i was thinking citizens

like white lives matter

or standard MAGA people

surprised they haven't intentionally scheduled their own march that just so happens to collide with a BLM march

they seemed pretty adamant about getting out protesting together to 'open up the country'

really that's it, isn't it?

now is their chance

their 'enemy' is visible

and looking for a fight

no more blaming the amorphous NYTimes / liberal elites in conceptual form

their 'problem' is right there - in one bigass loud crowd on the street

hard to miss

and instead of getting up in their business, they are just sitting idle and letting them run amok unchecked

Maybe a little of column A and a little of column B. They are not well organized, and don't have national lawyer guild "observers" or bail funds.

Proud boys and Patriot Prayer tried, and largely succumed to prosecution.

If they leave their suburbs to counter protest in the urban core, they will find antagonistic DAs. They will also find that there will be plenty of footage of their misdeeds and very little of their opponents.

This all loops back to lack of organization and an expectation that certain norms will be maintained by momentum.

Lastly, they tend not to be 20 somethings and have careers and property that could be lost.

There's an assymetric threat profile. How many academics are rioting with no fear of job loss? We give lefty domestic terrorists professorships.

If Mickey can molotov a cop car, he might just get his tenure early.

One of the more deranged, delusional posts I've seen here.

Yup. You can't get tenure without at least one statue tear-down.

I wonder if learning what academia is really like would be upsetting to you guys. There's like two dudes in the entire country who do riots, otherwise it's a bunch of libs who make Facebook posts

The Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer groups are the only vaguely righty groups I am aware of that even bother with protests/ inevitable street fighting. The march for life and other mainstream righty protests are too mundane and ineffective to even get "diversity of tactics" shit aimed against it.

Proud Boys/ PP are also the only ones too dumb to see that there is no upside. Those with shit to lose stay home.

IF the right could organize in a way to mitigate the risks of street action, but more importantly, organize pressure campaigns (see sleeping giants) maybe they wouldn't be so incredibly feckless and doomed.

Separate from all that, certain kinds of lefty political violence are quickly forgotten and forgiven: see the SDS/ Weather Underground.

The reality is that it’s hard to produce protests of significant size without a hell of a lot of young people involved. Fewer than 1/3 of those who say they protested in recent months was over the age of 40. Perhaps more importantly, the average age of an organizer is 28.

The current conservative movement is far too dependent on the over 50 crowd to expect that it can deliver an effective protest movement of its own.
