One person has died and two people are in custody after a shooting during dueling protests Saturday in downtown Denver, according to police and media reports.
A man participating in what was billed as a “Patriot Rally” that also included a presence of self-described BLM-Antifa protesters, sprayed mace at another man and that man shot him with a handgun. Ambulances responded to the scene. Police said Saturday afternoon they were working on a homicide investigation.
An hour in, police had fired what appeared to be pepper balls after people from the leftist group started rattling a barrier headed into the amphitheater.
The “Patriot Rally” in Civic Center was organized by John Tiegen, an El Paso County resident with a large social media following, who tweeted earlier this month that “(BLM, Antifa and related Marxist associations are assaulting everything we love and cherish about this country.”

The counterprotest has been billed by organizers on Facebook as a “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive.”

Ya know, I was reading a bit about Weimar Germany recently, and I've seen some unsettling similarities.

I mean... I've been saying that for a while.

Is there anything in particular that sends up red flags for you?

Not quite that bad but it is happening quite a lot it seems that an event is planned then suddenly AntiFa plans an event right by it. Definitely an escalation from 2016 when it was mostly people turning up outside rallies and fundraising to just intimidate people mostly.


And you'll never guess the identity of the shooter.


A Pinkerton agent. The right wing militant tried to assault a Pinkerton and got shot. Woops.
Private security hired by the station. No-one really can know how he was hired unless more info comes out other than he was hired as private security

Whatever, just wash your hands.

Similarities don't mean it will happen. But yeah there are certainly similarities with all the shit and I wouldn't be surprised if we had to have the secret service drag trump out of the white house kicking and screaming.

Also you should chance your icon to this.

Pinkerton is a private security company. They hired a Pinkerton agent.

Are people just using the word "Pinkerton" as a synonym for "private security"?

Paramilitary groups of opposite ends of the political spectrum battling it out in the street.

I assume we'll have our own lyrics to Horst-Wessel-Lied before too long. Or our own version.

Similarities don't mean it will happen.
I'm not saying what will happen. Obviously, reading history doesn't empower one to predict the future with any real degree of specificity.

Also you should chance your icon to this.
I'm good, thanks.

Yeah, I look at the 'we gotta destroy the riots' thing as very Wiemar. So I see it as not just those two groups

The protests, so safe and peaceful news crews and reporters feel the need to hire private security to go to them and report........

Is it really a "battle" when one side rattles shields and gets shot by pepper balls while the other side assaults private security and takes a casualt?

Seems like there was 4 sides and the only one that didn't fight was antifa

This is clear evidence that he is a swamp monster. The same thing happened to Hilary.
