|No Trump! No Wall! No USA at all!|
The hard left Antifa goons shouted such charming slogans as "No Trump, No Wall, No USA at all!" while milling about clad in their trademark black and armed with shields and clubs.
Lacking an actual right wing protest to attack, they proceeded to attack random passers by, chasing them, beating them, and generally terrifying everyone in the area.
The police were ordered to stand down to give Antifa 'space'.
This is a problem. Actually, this is a lot of problems, but in total these issues bring us dangerously close to the brink of outright civil war.
Right wing people (and this apparently includes anyone not wearing an Antifa hoodie) are legitimately in fear that they could be beaten into a coma or killed by a mob at any moment. It is also clear that police protection is not guaranteed, or even likely, depending on where you are standing.
At some point, the feral Antifa crowds are going to attack someone who is armed. When that person pulls out their gun and starts shooting, lots of people are going to die.
We cannot have civil discourse when one side is beating people in the streets.
We cannot have civil society when fists, clubs, and masked thugs rule the streets.
We cannot have civilization when the police protection has been withdrawn from the people.
This needs to stop.

If this doesn't stop soon, there will be bloodshed.
There will be an incident of self defense that leaves dead and wounded on the ground. Or someone will decide to start shooting randomly into the Antifa mob.
Once that happens, this will quickly become a much more dangerous situation.
