commented on There's a Rumor Floating Around the Internet About an Upcoming White Power Rally in Ballard. We're Checking It Out.
This reminds me of an event years ago in a city far from here. Antifa groups got word that white power idiots would be having a new year's eve gathering featuring several wp bands. Just a general neighborhood was mentioned; the specifics would be given to the idiots closer to the start time. I think the hope was that enough protesters would show up, find out where the event was, and get it shut down.
At one point we pulled into a gas station to refill and also at the same station was a car with a bunch of skinheads in it. They didn't notice us (we were just random people in a car) but there was an overwhelming feeling of Shit Just Got Real.
short version: the show apparently went on (at least for a bit) and there was no violence between the two sides.
commented on Fact-Checking Last Night's Fox Debate: Who Lied Best?
There are also countless fuzzy claims that never go through fact checking because I guess they're seen as opinions and not facts. i.e. when last night it was uttered: "we are a country that is being beaten on every front economically, militarily." That doesn't seem true at all. We're being beaten on every military front?! Huh?
commented on What's Wrong With This Picture?
This reminds me to ask, what's with all the Amante pizza places all over the place? Their food seems so-so, but they have stuck around and keep expanding. Are they some front that I would be better off not asking about?
