  • Riot erupts following Charles Kirk lecture at Colorado State University

    02/04/2018 10:57:03 AM PST · by rktman · 49 replies ^ | 2/4/2018 | Rick Moran
    Neo-fascists, shouting what was described as a "Nazi slogan," attacked a group of Antifa protesters outside of a venue where conservative activist Charles Kirk had just concluded a lecture. The fascists, believed to be connected to the Traditionalist Worker Party, charged a group of anti-fascist protesters as they were dispersing. Police in riot gear moved in to restore order. Protesters were drawn to campus because of a speech by conservative activist Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, which says on its website is devoted to the promotion of the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets and limited government.

    Car burnings have become a tradition across France over New Year’s with the latest figures showing an increase in arson, but some experts claim the motive behind the attacks is simple boredom. Approximately 1,031 vehicles were set on fire on the night of December 31st and the early hours of the morning of January 1st, up from last year’s 935. The arson attacks have remained a constant feature over New Year’s, Bastille Day celebrations in the summer, and during incidents of civil unrest. Many have attempted to try and make sense of why the arson attacks keep occurring year after...

    When teens aren’t busy having illegal Ikea sleepovers or jumping into zebra exhibits at the zoo for love, sometimes they find time to flock to the malls of New Jersey, where they kick doors and run up escalators the wrong way. As NBC-10 reports, between 700 and 1,000 teens created such a disturbance at the Cherry Hill Mall in southern New Jersey the day after Christmas. Fellow shoppers were reportedly frightened as the teens moved around nonsensically, and a few fights even broke out. “Kids [were] running up and down the escalator the wrong way, so they shut them off,...

    The two women, mothers of young men, cried and shouted as they stood near the Discount Mega Mall in Little Village on Tuesday night. Both heard their sons had been shot. People around them spoke of a dead boy lying somewhere at the mall on 26th and Whipple streets, killed by police. Someone said four people had been shot. Others drove off to check hospitals. Finally, an officer yelled to the growing crowd: "Nobody was shot. You can all go home. Nobody was shot." But the yelling and confusion continued into the night, fueled by rumors that drew more and...

    The outrage about Trump’s comments on Charlottesville has been somewhat surprising for most sane conservatives. He condemned all violence. Who could object? Two groups of haters attacked each other; it was like the Soviets fighting the Nazis -- sane people wanted both sides to lose. But the voices from the Bubble are telling us that only one side was bad and that condemning all violence, like saying all lives matter, is evil. The liberal and media response was expected since if Trump were to say that the sky was blue or that the sun rises in the east they’d attack...
