So were they just random people without any affiliation who just happened to be in a random place and committed random "peaceful" acts?

Clearly organized.  The Democrat Party owns these anarchists.

Protesters at Trump's Phoenix rally used gas canisters, rocks to assault police

A group of anti-Trump demonstrators used gas canisters, rocks and bottles to assault police Tuesday night and create havoc at what officials said was mostly a peaceful protest in Phoenix.

Video captured by a local reporter also shows a smoking object being thrown at police while hundreds of officers attempted to keep order at a rally after President Trump's speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended.

"A very small number of individuals chose criminal conduct," Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters late Tuesday.

The individuals broke down fencing and "at one point dispersed gas into and at the police officers," Williams said. "They had their own gas they threw at police, not our gas."

The violence resembled the mayhem perpetrated by Antifa groups, militant far-left "anti-fascist" groups that have protested Trump at other venues.

Local Phoenix officers dressed in riot gear finally had to disperse pepper balls and tear gas at the crowds. Officers first directed pepper spray at individual protesters before they deployed a larger-scale gas.

"Officers were forced then at that time to really protect themselves, to protect the community, to protect property and they did so successfully and professionally," Williams said.

Four people were arrested in connection with the protest, and two of those were charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

A reporter with the Arizona Republic captured video of a lit object being thrown toward police officers from a crowd of people gathered in downtown Phoenix. The video shows the object begins smoking after striking a police officer.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton described the event as a largely civil celebration of First Amendment rights -- with tens of thousands of demonstrators -- but noted a "very small number of people" who chose to engage in "acts of assault on our police officers."

Stanton said the group used gas, rocks and bottles and called the incident "very, very unfortunate."

"I don't think they're affiliated with any organization," Stanton said of the individuals arrested.

"Thank God no one was hurt here tonight," he told reporters, noting that two officers were treated for heat exhaustion.

Similar incidents among anti-Trump protesters have been reported at other rallies across the country.

In June, an arsenal of weaponry -- including clubs, knives, bricks and what look like spears -- were seized by police in Portland, Ore., when rival political groups clashed during a pro-Trump, free-speech rally. Law enforcement clad in riot gear had to shield themselves from rocks and other projectiles thrown by anti-Trump protesters, according to local news outlets.

At one point during the Portland demonstrations, several anti-Trump protesters – black-clad and masked – were seen waving an "Antifascist Action" flag at pro-Trump activists.

Antifa groups have come under fire in the wake of the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Many have said Antifa demonstrators played a significant role in the violent clashes in Charlottesville and at other events across the country.

A White House petition, meanwhile, is demanding that the Trump administration officially label Antifa a "terror group." As of Wednesday, the petition had more than double the 100,000 signatures needed to merit a formal response from the White House.

FBI, DHS warned of increasingly violent Antifa clashes in 2016, documents show

By Lucia I. Suarez Sang Published September 01, 2017 Fox News

Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous.

Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists.

Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”

The agencies warned the rise of fascist, nationalist, racist or anti-immigrant groups in U.S. political discourse could lead to violent backlash from these “anarchist extremists.”

Not surprised. 

BTW, I've been in Virginia the past couple days.  No KKK in sight.   Smiley

Also, a little off topic, but I popped into a university bookstore, browsing.  Thumbed through a fairly new political science book.  Some of the most biased garbage I've ever seen.  In talking about the history of conservatism and liberalism, it linked "right wing" conservatism with the KKK.  Then gave a rosey picture of liberalism and its roots in socialism and communism.  I cannot believe we are teaching our young people this crap.

Arizona restaurant closes following backlash from its pro-Trump Facebook post
Fox News


Cup it Up, a restaurant in Tucson, Ariz., shuttered its doors indefinitely Monday after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote received criticism from social media users.  (Google Earth image)

An Arizona restaurant was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users.

Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported.

The post stated: "We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing Obama Care…”

The post also listed, God, the Bill of Rights, drug screening for welfare recipients and the U.S. Armed Forces among others they praised.

Their list of things they don’t believe in or support included: “Those that DON’T respect our President, Armed Forces and First Responders, kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, global warming and late night hosts getting political…”

The post concluded with: “If you like this post, please share it with 5 friends and we look forward to your next visit! If you disagree with this post, please share it with 100 friends and we won’t be expecting you anytime soon!”

The restaurant’s post also mentioned the eatery would not broadcast NFL games until “the organization got it together.”

The post, which went viral, was met with widespread backlash and criticism, forcing the restaurant to delete it and all its social media accounts.

The restaurant received “so many angry phone calls” that several employees chose to quit, reports say.

"People threatened to burn down the restaurant with the owners in it. It's a crazy world we're in," Ron Sanchez, whose daughter worked at the eatery, told ABC15.

Ericka Ayup, a regular customer of the restaurant, told ABC 15 the post was not “smart” but respected their opinion.

"I respected their decision to speak up and be patriotic whether people agree or not," Ayup told ABC 15. "It wasn't smart for them to do what they did from a business aspect especially being down here in the University -- which is more liberal and young." 

The restaurant apologized for the post but social media users flooded the eatery’s Yelp page with negative reviews.

Pro-Trump Arizona restaurant will reopen after closing over Facebook backlash

Fox News

The owners of the Cup It Up restaurant in Tucson, Ariz., say they’re hoping to open “sometime soon” after closing their doors earlier this month following a "nasty" backlash over a pro-POTUS Facebook post.

Chris Smith and Jay Warren claim they received so much backlash after they shared their pro-Trump opinions that employees chose to quit, leading them to “close [Cup It Up’s] doors indefinitely” on Oct. 9.

“We expected some shares, some discussion, but as it kept coming in, after about three hours of the pure nastiness, we decided to pull it,” co-owner Smith said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”

Now, however, Smith and Warren confirmed that they plan to reopen Cup It Up in the near future, and they’re clearing up why they chose to post their Facebook message in the first place.

“The National Anthem [issue] really struck home with me, as a Navy veteran,” explained Smith. “My take on the national anthem is a patriotic one. I served in the Persian Gulf,” said Smith, who explained that the anthem “took on a whole new meaning” after hearing it sung during a Super Bowl while he was stationed overseas.

“Fast-forward to today, now I turn on the TV and the gentlemen are kneeling,” he added. “I know I’m not diminishing their cause, but there’s just no justification to disrespect our national anthem and the men and women who served in the armed forces.”

Smith also said that, if the tables were turned and he saw a post critical of his beliefs, he would “keep that to myself” rather than share his opinions on social media.

Neither Smith nor Warren revealed an exact date for the reopening of Cup It Up.

Smith and Warren took to Facebook in early October to share a post in which they shared a list of the things they “support 100 percent” as well as the things they “do NOT support.”

Included among the things they supported were “our president,” “always standing for the national anthem,” “the U.S. Armed Forces” and “repealing Obama Care,” as seen in their since-deleted post. Conversely, things they didn’t support included “those that don’t respect our president,” “kneeling during the national anthem,” “Antifa,” “political correctness” and “global warming,” among others.

Yeah, man.  Focus on making good food and keep political stuff out of the kitchen.  It spoils the taste of too much as it is.

"Turning this into a discussion of 'free speech' is playing right into the fascists' hands."

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D6b-QHZ2Yc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D6b-QHZ2Yc</a>

After a meeting of the Student Republicans was disrupted by unhinged "protesters" last week at the University of California Santa Cruz, the President of the UCSC Student Democrats, Weslyn Church, stood up for their First Amendment Rights. Predictably, if disappointingly, she was raked over the internet coals for her trouble. Doesn't she know that conservatives don't have rights?

College Reform reports that, in a Facebook post, Church said "As the President of the College Democrats at UCSC, I stand in support of the College Republicans' right to free speech and free assembly." She said that she knows that if "this situation happened to the College Democrats," the College Republicans "would do the same."

She went on to say that "The organizers of this disruption harmed not only the civil debate that was ongoing, but also the studying experience of those in the library. These protesters should be ashamed of their un-American and undemocratic actions," while praising the College Republicans for being "nothing but polite and cordial."

A depressingly small number of people agreed with her, and a lot of people lost their minds that she would suggest Republicans should have Constitutional rights. Comments (College Reform has the screenshots)  included "You're the same f-ing party; neoliberal, capitalist, racist, narc-ass cop loving,  Wall Street zombie f-ks," "turning this into a discussion of 'free speech' is playing right into the fascists' hands," and "Un-American LOLOL." There's also the very eloquent "LAUGHING OUT LOUD hahahahahaha," which is sure to win hearts and minds.

We are at a time in our nation's history in which college students, who are supposed to be at an elite level of learning, don't believe that groups with which they disagree are entitled to Constitutional rights. They don't believe that it is un-American to deny others those rights. What's the point of higher education if college students don't know middle-school civics?

Anti-Gunner Sentenced to Anger Management After Assaulting Pro-Gun Election Observer

Why are civilian disarmament advocates so violent? . . . Gun control advocate pleads guilty to assaulting gun rights activist during election recount

The charge stems from an incident that took place last November, during a state Senate race recount at the state archives building on South Fruit Street.

Susan Olsen, a prominent gun-rights activist, was volunteering as a Republican observer to watch the recount between incumbent Democrat Andrew Hosmer and Republican Harold French. Olsen claimed that when she asked counters to move ballots closer so she could better see them, (New Hampshire State Rep. Katherine) Rogers, who was volunteering as a Democratic observer, smacked her upside the head.

After pleading guilty, Rogers had a $1000 fine suspended (for “good behavior” no less), but will have to attend an anger management class to learn how to behave in a civil manner around those with whom she disagrees politically.

Rogers’ attorney, William Christie, said Friday his client, who has often sponsored gun-control legislation, had merely “touched” Olsen, but accepted responsibility.

Rogers — who was named…wait for it…New Hampshire’s Humane Legislator of the Year in 2017 — apparently doesn’t think law abiding citizens of New Hampshire should be trusted with the responsibility for keeping and bearing arms. Can you say…projection?
