The "free speech rally peeps" were white nationalists.

From what I saw both sides were antagonizing and fighting like a bunch of tards (which you'd have to be to be in either group tbh).

Anyways I guess this just speaks to the violent nature of free speech advocates when it comes to people not agreeing with them .

The chick with the dreads that ends up getting punched in the face wrote that she was going down to that protest to get 100 nazi scalps haha.

She went down there just to fight and ended up getting smacked up.

the video of the girl getting punched was one of those things were you can't help but watch it. i felt bad but i'd be lying if i said i didn't watch it 5 or 6 times in a row.

it is totally hilarious to me that both sides of these groups think they're doing the right thing when it's actually the social equivalent of two orangoutang's fighting in their own feces.

I don't know if it ever reaches that level of sophistication tbh.

You honestly read the article and took it as truth? Did you know that one of the speakers at the free speech event roundly disavowed the few white nationalists who tagged along? Have you watched lots of footage of the event? Did you see how the event was organised?

But there was a picture of some white supremacist scumbags and the article just called people racist and alt-right, so it must be true.

It's not okay to violently protest, even if you're under the impression that you're fighting the good fight against NAZI FASCIST SCUM, who are just having bit of a walk.

This is quite a funny summary of the event:

#triggered

I saw one video titled "Free Speech Activists Drive Out Antifa Protestors," which is pretty hilarious imo since they all try to present themselves as people who just want a dialogue.

Better to appear triggered and be right than post propaganda.

So if I get this right, I should feel sorry for the people who limited the freedom of speech of others who tried to limit their freedom of speech because they want to limit people's overall freedoms. Certainly no propagandist logic there.
