Violent Anarchists Run Riot in Berkeley, Police Chief Blathers About “Space for Antifa”

The Antifa anarchists so beloved by the media, Democrats, and other liberal establishmentarians (e.g., Mitt Romney, John McCain, Marco Rubio) ran riot again over the weekend. Here they are in Berkeley, chasing down and beating people on suspicion of not sharing their political views, in broad daylight as the police make themselves scarce:

Legal Insurrection reports:

Hundreds of black-clad masked Antifa rioters descended on a park in Berkeley, California, after a “No to Marxism” rally was canceled.

It was presumably canceled for fear of leftist violence, which is obviously a serious concern in these times.

A few people showed up anyway, and were viciously beaten and attacked.

Mainstream media journalists caught in the middle described the Antifa rioters arriving in battle formation armed with shields (which were specifically prohibited under published police rules) and the police appearing to stand down. Journalists who were filming were repeatedly attacked by Antifa.

An S.F. Comical reporter was right to be alarmed:

Police Chief Andrew Greenwood explains why the police allowed Berkeley to succumb to anarchy:

You can see why they enjoy rioting and assaulting suspected conservatives in Berkeley. The fellow-traveling liberals who run the place give them carte blanche.

Antifa has one redeeming quality. Instead of bleating bland talking points and leaving people to interpret, they tell you exactly what they want. Here they confirm their literal desire to destroy the United States:

The bad guys are winning, at least in Berkeley — and by bad guys, I mean the worst people imaginable. Antifa is America’s answer to the Khmer Rouge.

    Shame on you Berkley PD. If line staff doesn’t come forward and blow the whistle on BPD brass that ordered you to not enforce the law then I cannot consider y’all as brothers behind the badge.

    “Police Chief Blathers About “Space for Antifa””
    —was he wearing his OFFICIAL HAT when he said that?

    what is up with MICHAEL MOORE – i bet he supports ANTIFA
    but maybe — well , who knows
    the mental disorder is on the radio – thurs 8.24.17

    On WNYC the Leonard Lopate show had MICHAEL MOORE saying that white people will be a minority –
    “can’t come fast enough”. –
    laughs about being a self-hating white person.

    Then we have WBAI Trump Watch interviewing CARL DIX of
    the Revolutionary Communist Party saying that BOB AVAKIAN has a plan for a communist USA.

    well – I think there is more than just a Mental Disorder.
    first it was RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA

    Looking mighty progressive out there you self righteous know it all dick wads.

    I wonder where those antifa assholes get their training, pay and orders…

  6. Frank says:

    Berkeley and Baltimore: 2 super liberal cities. The democrud mayor of Baltimore ordered the police to stand down because rioters “needed room to destroy.” She lived in a mansion in an exclusive gated community safely distant from downtown…

  7. physicsnut says:

    i wonder if Google is de-monetizing ANTIFA types ?
    // he knows what he is talking about

  8. Mr. Freemarket says:

    I posted earlier today that I didn’t think that it was a good idea for police to have tanks and heavy artillery. In the case of California, I may have been wrong.

  9. Torcer says:

    Normalizing the Fascist Left
    The ‘newspaper of record’ just published an opinion piece entitled: Who’s Afraid of Antifa?

    Antifa is the backlash to the backlash, a defensive response to the growing presence of right-wing extremism.

    But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t worry. Because antifa groups are willing to use force when needed, provoking them can trigger a self-fulfilling prophecy.
    Who are the antifa, then? They do not advocate a positive doctrine, racial or otherwise. Some supporters consider themselves (as Mr. Trump accurately said) anarchists, some Marxists of different stripes; others don’t care much what you call them. There is no national antifa organization; most organized groups are local, concentrated in Texas and the Northwest. There’s not even a consensus among adherents as to whether to pronounce the term AN-tee-fah or an-TEE-fah.

    Now, is it that advisable to have a major newspaper profiling and justifying the actions of violent groups such as this? The ‘News paper or record’ is not alone in this regard, others of the NSM such as CNN have made the absurd claim that it’s goals are “peace through violence.”

    Question: When have major Conservative newspaper and media outlets profiled and praised groups that fashion themselves after the National Socialist German Worker’s Party or any of affiliates thereof?

    Venezuela Eyes Censoring Social Media After Public Shaming Wave
    Venezuela is considering banning messages that promote “hate” and “intolerance” on social media and messenger services, according to Delcy Rodriguez, the president of the country’s all-powerful constituent assembly.

    Rodriguez told reporters on Monday that the South American nation is looking to limit messages that fuel bigotry and confrontation between Venezuelans in a so-called anti-hate law, which is currently being debated by the legislative super body, known as the constituyente.
    The anti-hate law comes as the government of President Nicolas Maduro has intensified a clampdown on the media, blocking the transmission of Colombian networks Caracol and RCV last week. Like his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez, Maduro alleges that private media providers are conspiring with his political foes to undermine his socialist government.

    How’s Socialism Doing in Venezuela?

    Venezuela is falling apart. Its economy? Ruined. Its people? Hungry. Its government? Corrupt. What happened? In a word, socialism. Debbie D’Souza, a native Venezuelan and political activist, explains.

  18. Watchman59 says:

    Let’s give anti-FA (First Amendment) Berkley and all other Snowflake Zones, build walls around them high enough to keep them from climbing and deep enough to keep them from tunneling out, cut off all utilities and supplies, and let them handle themselves any way they want. Then, when the chaff burns itself out go in, restore the campuses, and let rational people who have the will and desire to restore those places to the way they should have been in.

  19. Watchman59 says:

    Personally I would prefer “Peace through superior firepower,” but that’s just me.

  20. Steve says:

    This will end badly for them someday.

  21. MAS says:

    Law enforcement is paramilitary by nature and so line staff follows orders. That doesn’t exclude blowing the whistle though. It’s the mayor/city manager/police chief that carry the responsibility.

  22. KHarn says:

    “This is what WAS NOT supposed to happen.”
    I’d like to ask her what she thought was SUPPOSED to happen.
    The people who are TRYING to get on with their lives should protect themselves and their property by applying teargas and birdshot to the affected area. If the college communists don’t get the message, switch to buckshot. When the idiots find out that the working people are opposing them and NOT “rising up against the man!”, they MIGHT re-think their politics.

  23. KHarn says:

    As in the military, there are “proper orders” and “improper orders”. Telling a cop to go alone into a building and “check it out” is a proper order. Ordering a cop to rough up a citizen (Or stand by while that’s being done) is an improper order and can be disobeyed.

  24. KHarn says:

    That movie always bothered me. Wouldn’t a department as large as SF’s have a COUPLE of policewomen with SOME street experience even if she was just a “meter maid”? Why go with someone from RECORDS?
    Someone must have gotten a “special favor”.

  28. David Turco says:

    Shows how remarkably dumb the libtard media are. In fact this was exactly what was supposed to happen with the globalists running the show from top to bottom. Tons of $, knowing the police will stand down when they riot, and that the media will praise them to the hilt.

  29. David Turco says:

    Not in a Marxist country.

  30. TuttleCrk says:

    This Cop has a point. It is not just this department, its nation-wide. People, which includes citizens, police departments, city, county, state, private groups, you name it, feel that if government don’t follow the constitution, then they don’t have to either. Just look at the democratic party, they don’t follow the constitution. So what comes next after nobody is following the constitution ????????

    The police chief should have ordered his men to open fire and spray the horde of communists with automatic weapons until a heap of torn meat and bloody rags was all that was left.

    with the abject failure of AGW, the ozone hole, peak oil, and a host of other idiot causes these video ninjas recognize their lives are useless. So, they have joined up with the video ninja army. They even get to wear Kool uniforms and squawk in unison about mythical enemy fascists. Now their lives have meaning.

    Yeah. It means they’re just a bunch of loser azzholes, just like always.

    One of the best reasons to stay out of Commiefornia. When you apply for a CCW you’re denied with the reason being “the police are there to protect you. You don’t need a firearm”. That is unless Antifa are on the war path; then the police are there to protect THEM!

  43. magic1114 says:

    Eventually the shitbirds like Antifa will become emboldened and branch out to the area’s populated by people unimpressed with their bullshit. Then the fun begins…

    Anti-duh wanted to feel vindicated after the semi cluster fluck they experienced last time in Berkeley. By the looks of things they brought more of their Oakland heavies out from the slums. Problem is there were no obvious Nazis to go after. Everyone with a MAGA hat or right leaning group affiliation were settled on as targets. Anti-duh is now in it’s ascendancy and I can garun freaking tee you that September’s Portland Free Speech rally will be just as bad… If not worse. They are that emboldened and each city’s Anti Fa chapter will want to out do the other.
