Right-wing demonstrators gathered Saturday in Seattle for a "Liberty or Death" rally that drew counter-protesters from the left while dozens of police kept the two sides separated.
The right-wing groups Washington 3 Percenters and Patriot Prayer were holding the rally outside Seattle City Hall to protest an effort to launch a gun-control initiative that would raise the age in Washington state for people buying semi-automatic rifles.
The left-wing groups Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity, Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party were rallying at the same site.

Wonder why people are losing faith in the police and prosecutors. Try to imagine how the police thirty years ago would have dealt with a horde of masked thugs wielding clubs who threatened demonstrators who had a valid permit to assemble. Today right minded, decent people are rightly skeptical.
Seattle. My money is on the lefties.
I propose a maximum pay rate for law enforcement officers and their chiefs who stand or lean with their arms folded or one hand on a hip while Antifa or other thugs are beating,gassing and kicking conservatives.
The pay ceiling would be 50 cents an hour before taxes and deductions. Phony sick day requests or vacation day requests will be met with suspensions.
What - no Democrats?
Then this is Kings County that turns WA Blue election after election.
Only because they find “extra ballots” when the Republican candidate is winning to defeat the Republican; ergo, Princess Gregoire where “123 extra ballots” were found (in King county) to defeat the winning Republican for Governor.

Ah, the good old days, not like the Chicago 1968 demonstrations.
Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity
Sounds better than National Socialist Party.
Click on the comments (at the linked article) and see the complete lack of balance. The quips range from left to leftist. Even the ones who pride themselves on their “moderate” or “independent” status loathe liberty.
Right wingers vs Left wingers: how to tell the difference ...
Right wingers wave the American flag; Left wingers wave the Soviet flag.
Liberty is “right wing”?
FREEDOM Socialist Party?!?!?!?
Liberal logic: Victims of violence initiate the violence, because they have the audacity to exercise their 1st amendment protect rights of speech and assembly.
Anyone attacking me with a blunt force weapon gets shot.
The issue is that there aren't enough cops to be everywhere at once and they're rightly hesitant to intervene when massively outnumbered. The leftists have attacked police and smashed police cars wherever they think they have enough of an edge to get away with it.
King county where votes are recounted until the correct outcome is determined.
“Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity”. Is this union muscle, or parents’ basement dwellers?
“right-wing extremist protestors” vs. “left-wing counterdemonstrators (including antifa)”. How fair and balanced./s
