    So why does Portland allow it to happen?
    Allow what to happen? About a month ago the cops directed all their energy at the counter protesters when the white supremacists came town to put on their show. I don’t know the cops involvement in this particular incident. From what I can tell, protesters had the street blocked and asked the driver to take a right turn to avoid where they were. It looks likenhe decided to drive through the crowd anyway, which could be considered assault.  
    I wouldn’t consider the driver’s actions assault...the people beating on his car and threatening him with violence though...

    And yet I haven’t heard any denounce them.  Maxine?  Hillary?  Bernie?  Alexandria?  
    Why do they need to?  Same stuff’s been happening in the Northwest for 25+ years. You’ve been made fearful because someone labeled it antifa
    I’m slightly fearful because what they have become is the paramilitary wing of the Democrat Party and continue to operate with no restrictions.

    I’ve only seen two clips, one before and one where the guy is on the hood of the car. If people are in the road, you can’t drive at them and create a situation where if they don’t move you’re going to keep driving and hit them. I guess you can but it’s illegal.

    Of course you can't. Just plowing people down in your car because they are in your way is not legal or justified, lol. Sounds like the guy had a detour route too. He just let his assholery control him. Only a dickhead wouldn't just say, "ah fuck!" and go around the protest.

    I saw a clip where the protester was pushing against the front of the car and leaning forward as if he was going to be able to stop the car from creeping forward. The dingleberry should have just stepped out of the way. The driver was going very slowly and clearly just trying to get out of harm's way. Once said dingleberry was out of the way, the car sped off. I know I wouldn't want to be in a vehicle and surrounded by a mob of people from either side, regardless of my feelings about a particular cause or protest. Mobs do stupid things. A yuge mob voted for our Grifter-in-Chief. I don't trust mobs.

    This thread is comedy gold.
    The next time a libertarian nutjob shoots a couple hundred people we will be all ears waiting for Unsung's swift condemnation and call for action.

    You’re in Cherokee NF and you think about coming on here to tag me to a thread?..  Holy cow thanks for the laugh, I feel like I should pay you rent for living in your head.

    I was in Yosemite a month ago and if someone would have told me that rgambs said blah blah I would have laughed and asked who?

    BTW, defense of violence from Antifa terrorists is completely justifiable.

    Yosemite should be buldozed and sold to entrepreneurs to build factories.

    Why TF should taxpayers finance the pleasure of others?
