            Are there any people out there in the world, who are critical of your views who aren’t homophoic, transphobic, Proud boys etc… ad nauseum?

            Tell me, where do you keep your victimhood oymplics medal? Is it beside your lighthouse of virtue signalling or do you prop up your obscurantist dishonesty with it ?

    Interesting that they use a Kalashnikov AK47 in the logo. A weapon developed by the Soviets in WWII.

      Well, I was hoping to come on here just to say ‘actually Cian I think you’ll find it’s an AK74, so what’s your point?’, just to spice things up a bit. Unfortunately, it looks more like a 47 than a 74, so I won’t make that comment…

      Things have been kind of calm here, no?

      After WWII…..but yes, wouldn’t have though the anarchists would have gone for a symbol that is the product of Stalin.

    What kinda society and democratic culture do AntiFa and fellow travellers hope to achieve? Perhaps David Langwallner will list these groups in a supplement to his Dictionary of Received Ideas.

      I’m no expert but I’d hazard a guess that an anti-fascist organisation would hope to achieve a society without fascism.

    Portland sounds like a magnet for all sorts of loons irrespective of their place on the political compass.

    A bunch of lads dressed as ninjas? Em, no thanks.

    I remember trying to watch Portlandia a few years back, never got into it but it left me with the impression is was full of glassless black rimmed glasses wearing, bubble tea drinkers in kaftans. Guess I got that one wrong?

      I like Portland. Have a few pals there. It’s weird for sure with the most hipsterish of hipster culture. It’s an old shipping port city with strong links to Asia and China in particular – like so much of the Pacific west. Good grub tho, decent beer and huge amount of strip clubs. Really bizarre that. Also, to don’t have to venture too far to visit wineries that produces some of the best Pinot Noir that America has to offer.

        And it’s not far from the Green Triangle.
        Enjoyed a very pleasant road trip trip there,along Big Sur and through Napa and Sonoma a few years back.
        This article gives a good flavour of the area.
        Portland today, like San Fransisco, is a Democrat-controlled dump. The city gave in to the mob and it will struggle to get it back with businesses shutting up shop and leaving in droves.

      The incessant heavy rain drives everyone who lives there crazy.. some more so, some less so, but all crazy..

    Some hornets nest stirred in the US alright. These type of situations we would have tut-tutted at if they happened in some eastern Bloc Country.
    How long before it hits home in the UK and here?
