Checking Zombie Time, I got a decent look at the “flag poles” being used by the Cute Little Fascists.
I was able to get a couple of closer and bigger pics from other sources (Click on them to enlarge.)
Those look very similar to tool handles such as for sledge hammers that come in 36 inch length and 1.5 inches wide. If you handle any sledge-hammer, you know the handles are made of hardwoods and for what we saw inn videos, the young misunderstood fellas have no problem using as weapons.
It is not a new thing, Unions have used baseball bats with signs attached to them when doing “collective bargaining”:
Both Union and “student” protesters have been given a wide latitude when it comes to the brandishing of “signs” and “flags” for reasons beyond my comprehension. Just because they have a piece of fabric attached to it, does not mean they suddenly are made out of foam and harmless. .
I don’t see this series of confrontations ending well. Somebody from the Thugs In Black is bound to get shot and probably killed… make that several of them. As crazy as it seems, the only way I see to nullify their actions is to hold “controversial” meetings in places where people can carry weapons for their defense and Stand Your Ground is the law of the land.
Impunity is one of the things fueling these idiots. Make their thirst for bashing heads come with a heavy price, and they will reconsider their behavior. Yes, society once again will become polite and the exchange of ideas can be done with a proper behavior.
