    gg Antifa. Now left is just as responsible for the violence as the right.
    You're acting like this is the first time antifa has done this. They have been instigating violence against unarmed people who they disagree with politically for years.

    Actually water canons on fire trucks use a really huge amount of water so they would need to be next to water hydrants all the time.

    And why? Just let them go at each other. All the normal people are at home anyway
    What were they even protesting about?

    And perhaps the more valid point, almost every black or minority Senator/Representative since the Civil Rights Era has been a Democrat.

    What's that you say?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/27/u...e.html?mcubz=1

    The Trump administration plans to reinstate in full a program that provides local police departments with military surplus equipment such as large-caliber weapons and grenade launchers, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.
    lol grenade launchers?

    That'll disperse more than the crowd.
    In all fairness, what do you think tear gas canisters are shot out of?

    This. They didn't have them for the demonstration in front of my house that I took pictures of, but I've seen riot units with H&K 40mm grenade launchers on their backs.

    Up until the "Southern Strategy", the Democrat Party was the party of slavery, racism, Jim Crow and the KKK.

    But that changed in the 1950's and 1960's. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy

    Don't be silly, Republicans only identify with the 1860 one when they want to trick more blacks into joining. If half these assholes opened a history book, things would be amazingly different.

    I suppose it's just a matter of time before somebody 'clever' decides it would be funny to replace a teargas nade with an HE frag.

    Other way around. Dixiecrats defected in retaliation over Civil Rights Act of 1964. This was further amplified by the Southern Strategy, Nixon fanning the flames of ex-Dixiecrats who identified now as Republican, and using the earliest beginnings of dogwhistle politics to imply he'd roll back or otherwise restrict the advancements made by CRA1964, while making states' rights a talking point.

    In turn this made Democrats the de facto pro-minority party, because the racist fucktards, who were largely Dixiecrat, left and jumped ship to Republicans. It wasn't until Reagan was elected that they fully realized their "FUCK DARKIES, FUCK THE POOR, FUCK TAXING THE RICH!" platform.
