The war is escalating whether you know it or not. The Right is ramping up for violence. They brag about it and organize for it on their discussion boards. If you think you’re going to passively protest, oppose or resist, well then you will be in for an unpleasant surprise. The Right is not going to let you get away with passive or peaceful anything.
The Right had already raised Kyle Chapman to hero status for clubbing Left protesters.
Now two men have been murdered on a Portland train for standing up to another Rightwing foot soldier, Jeremy Christian. Christian was known to police as a violent white supremacist and for his violent threats at Portland protests.
