Berkeley Mayor Calls for Antifa to be Classified as Crime Gang After Clashes at Weekend Protest

No poop, Sherlock.

All you have to do is look at the hate-filled lefties at AMG to see what the left is all about.

Yes, I do too. He seems to be good at spewing anger and hate, I wonder if thoughtful discussion is within his ken.

Being able to engage in such might help him get a date.

I saw the video, they are a fucking gang and should be treated as such.

Interesting what constitutes

Interesting what constitutes a "gang": Generally 2 or 3 (depending on state) or more persons in a group, with common markings or uniform, conspiracy to break the law and/or a pattern of law-breaking.

There are different definitions at federal and the various states for legal purposes.

Brings a new set of laws into play for prosecution.

I think they should be

I think they should be Klassified as a Klan. They wear black garb and black hoods, playing off the KKK style, and the D's would have to denounce and renounce them continuously.

Is there any proof for who's

Is there any proof for who's funding the Antifa thugs?

There's a PAC called Not One Penny now running some TV ads targeting Poliquin, and their list of partners is quite interesting at (PAC) --> https://notonepenny.org/#partners

I wonder if any of those same organizations are funding partners for Antifa?

Antifa must be polling really

Antifa must be polling really badly for the Dems. Pelosi has condemned them and there are critical articles being written about them in the Democrat sycophant media. The word must have gone out that Dems need to distance themselves from their goon squad.

Do crime gangs have political

Do crime gangs have political agendas? That's new to me.
Apologists for antifa in my town rose to the microphone to excuse them for their violence because they're against racism. By any means necessary!

Antifa is anti-globalist.
Antifa is anti-nationalist.
Antifa is anti-nation-state.

So what are they FOR? Small "d" democracy as in non-state Marxist anarchy.
They embrace violent means of getting there.
They rationalize violent means as "self defense" against "fascism" and "fascists," which they get to define. So far it seems they define fascists as all who oppose their agenda and all who voted for Trump/Pence (don't leave out Pence).

Under ordered liberty, we do have the right to self-defense, of course. Yet, except when in imminent danger of bodily harm we delegate the use of force in our self-defense against criminals, terrorists, and yes even "fascists" to the police, operating within the rule of law.

That's why it's important to make sure our police are accountable to the rule of law. It's also why anarchists and Marxists are happy to call the legitimacy of the police into question: doing so permits them to reject police authority and take on their own version of self-defense through violent means.

Matt, I think some cities do

Matt, I think some cities do a good job at holding police departments accountable and some need to do better. I think there will always be failures in policing, until we install all-robot police forces (just kiddin' ya on that).
Human beings have weaknesses and biases, and police officers are human beings.

The alternatives - vigilantism, militia, and mob or gang justice - are far worse, and accountable to no one. A free society cannot endure when it descends to any of these alternatives in place of self-defense powers delegated to the state, operating with the consent of the governed.
