Since you don’t every day see groups of left-wingers totin’ semi-automatic rifles, strolling down the sidewalk, I figured I would follow them and record this odd phenomenon via Facebook Live.
Earlier, the spokeswoman told me that someone with the Brown Berets might talk with me, but she later came up as I was recording the group with my iPhone, and told me the Brown Berets were keeping it zipped as well.
She also asked me to stop filming. And I told her I wasn’t going to do that, because we were on public property.
The spokeswoman approached, justifying their request that I not film because they were “trying to protect the safety and identity of our members.”
Since many were hiding their faces already, I didn’t see this as much of an issue. But I informed her that we live in a free society and that means, when you are demonstrating in a public place, the press gets to film you.
Amusingly, a couple of them were filming me with their iPhones as I filmed them. The spokeswoman then raised a new issue: They did not want me to follow them to their cars and film their cars.
After some more back and forth, they told me that their real concern was that I might film their license plates and that’s the reason they were acting this way.
By the way, I did the same thing to the Arizona Liberty Guard at the March4Trump a couple of weeks ago. I followed them, watched them get into their Army surplus trucks, and filmed them until they drove away.
While I was talking to a handful of the lefties, some ran off, got their cars, and came back to pick up their comrades from the south side of Adams Street.
These progressive goons with guns tried to block me, but I did film some them driving away. The denouement of this encounter was especially ludicrous, as you will see if you watch the video that I have posted.
Hasn’t there already been bloodshed?! I’m sorry, but this is almost the next logical step from crazy left-wing extremists. They haven’t exactly been non-violent and non-threatening to date. They burn down towns, beat up people they don’t agree with, shoot people going in to talks by right leaning speakers, riot at the drop of a hat, send death threats to people they don’t agree with, embolden their followers to harm or kill, ambush first responders, and are starting to use ISIS tactics during all of this! Why is a group of armed lefties trying to intimidate people they don’t agree with a surprise to anyone?!
I don’t support this kind of thing from either side. I don’t care who you are. People in the USA have a Constitutional right to hold protests and rallies. You don’t have a right to intimidate them with guns because you don’t agree with their stance. Period.
