Antifa groups openly advocate violence to stop speech from anyone they don’t want. (It’s only a matter of time before they try to stop Rod –
obviously not a nazi – speaking, if he were to go to one of ‘their’ places) They bring weapons to these rallies and place caches of weapons where the rallies will be held. Their violence is manifested like this: If police are there they throw things as much as they are able to with police around: batteries, bags of disgusting stuff, glass bottles – things that will hurt you. If police are not there they get hand weapons, form a mob and try to grab people, who they pull into and among the mob and smash smash smash while the victim are on the ground. They try to inflict violence especially on the weak.

Just because your smartphone can do this thing does not mean that your should use your smartphone for this purpose.
