What started as a peaceful Justice for George Floyd protest in Seattle turned violent thanks to fringe Progressive and Antifa activists. And their abhorrent behavior is being defended by bad-faith voices, pretending we’re under assault by white supremacists. Or, even worse, peaceful protesters who are fine with the destruction.
Americans have the right to peacefully assemble. This is beyond question. What folks don’t have the right to do is destroy property, assault officers, disrupt freeway traffic, or steal police weapons.
Yet portions of Seattle were trashed, burned, and destroyed thanks to a large group of Antifa members, anarchists, and their enablers.
But one black protester who was obviously there to protests peacefully shamed one Antifa member and in some way, he shows him what America is all about.
Antifa members are privileged, angry white millennials — and local anarchists have consistently co-opted peaceful protests for their own political agenda. They do it almost every May Day. Some are local to Seattle, some from around Washington, and some based in Oregon. These monsters don’t care about George Floyd. You think Antifa is above taking advantage of a George Floyd protest in Seattle? They’re simply exploiting national anger to push their anti-capitalist and anti-police agenda.
But Antifa and anarchists have their defenders and enablers.
We need more brave people like the young man in the video to face these terrorists.

Several Seattle police and city transit vehicles were set on fire, along with the property damage and looting of dozens of downtown businesses.
