Which side is using violence?
More statist thuggery.
So what’s the moral of this story? Whenever the state maims, tortures, murders, kidnaps, enslaves, encages, and lies, its the highest moral good. Whenever the statists intimidate or beat up their opponents the media is silent. But when peaceful Americans peacefully protest an imperial government that is coercing them and threatening them with acts of violence if they don’t obey, the media and government insist these peaceful individuals are dangerous racist domestic terrorists.
