    kpete (65,582 posts) Prosecutors Find No Protester Links to Antifa

    U.S. federal prosecutors have produced no evidence linking dozens of people arrested in anti-racism protests in Portland, Oregon, to the antifa or anarchist movements, despite President Trump’s assertions they are fueling the unrest, Reuters reports.




    “We have not alleged defendant affiliation with any specific groups or ideologies in our cases stemming from recent Portland protests,” said Kevin Sonoff, the spokesman. “Our cases focus purely on the criminal conduct alleged.”

    Trump and officials in his administration have applied the labels to the Portland protesters, who set fires around, and threw objects at, officers around a federal courthouse during long-running confrontations.

    So it wasn't that they didn't "find no 'protester' links to antifa', it's that they weren't investigating or identifying individuals as being Antifa. They were prosecuting people based on their actions, not affiliation.

    Democrats can only 'win' by lying so they claim that those who are rioting, vandalizing and committing arson and being violent aren't "Antifa".

    Democrats consistently demonstrate that they are FOR VIOLENCE.

    Everyone knows that the fascist group - Antifa - is fomenting, encouraging and committing violence at the riots. Jack*sses can claim they aren't but then they lie all the time.

    3. The two unqualified RWers installed by shithole . . .

    Wolf and Cuccinelli in the DHS along with treason barr are trying to tie peaceful protestors as terrorist. Think about that. They would charge peaceful protestors with terrorism to cover-up for their criminal ventures which includes shithole himself, ie Russia.
    *snort* The so called peaceful protesters are a minority of the so called protesters at Portland and Seattle. They stand back and cheer on the violence. They think their Democrat rank and file voters and Republicans are so "dumb" that they believe whatever the jack*ss propagandists say.

    Personally, I hate fascists. Didn't we have a war against them? We also had a war against treasonous Confederates, as I recall.
    LOL. Like always the left accuses others of what THEY ARE.

    Yeah, that's a BS conclusion. The prosecutors aren't alleging a link so they won't have to go off on a RICO or terrorism case, because they have plenty of evidence of plain old criminal conduct. That's a million miles from 'No link found.'

    "U.S. federal prosecutors have produced no evidence ..."
    1. There is a difference between "finding no links" and not producing evidence in a process that is just beginning.

    2. kpete disingenuously changed Reuters' article title, which is "U.S. prosecutors do not charge Portland protesters with antifa ties". On the site where I'm a Moderator, if I caught a member doing that, I would edit the post to the correct article title and publicly warn that member not to do that. And if that member had a history of doing that it would be several days' or a couple of weeks' "time-out". Besides the dishonesty - such as kpete showed - it puts the site owner in jeopardy of unpleasantness over copyrights and fair use.

    Democrats have found no links to Trump and Russia, but if it hasn't stopped them from claiming collusion, why should we stop claiming antifa organization and action in these riots?

    If you listen to DU everyone who even slightly disagreed with any of them is a Nazi or White Supremacist, and they claim this without any proof whatsoever.

    Now have ANTIFA running around burning, looting and assaulting people with their flags flying and tagging the living shit out everything and the jerkazoids on DU can't see it.

    Or better yet its " RIGHT-WINGERS " sneaking in and doing all this terrible shit while their " LITTLE ANGELS " get blamed for things they would never do

    That's why ANTIFA loves the North West, they let those spoiled assholes get away with anything and everything.
