Chair’s Note – The left’s fledgling para-military branch – Antifa (an ironic acronym for ‘anti-fascist’) – is on a roll thanks to what amounts to a Carte Blanche by the progressive-liberal-socialist movement and most media outlets. Weekend events in Berkley reveal their authentic character and mission. Similarly to the Black Lives Matter movement and other anger mismanagement groups masquerading as social justice collaborators, their ‘anything goes’ boundaries have an eerie similarity to another terror group – ISIS. Here’s how…

This isn’t a joke… This isn’t either…
Pay attention to Antifa and other left-minded extremists who are finding it increasingly easy to justify their anger, violence and indifference to the rule of law. A mature response? “Join the side you are on.”
If you’re a conservative, the only game in town is the Republican Party. Join us and make us better. We’re trying hard to find positive ways to do just that in Buncombe County.
This was a riot in downtown Asheville. The weapon was a crowbar and the violence was directed at a public monument. All the people involved participated willingly and attempted to conceal the property damage. In the world of the angry abuser, damage to property (unpunished) is typically followed by damage to person.
