Such a deceptive headline. Just because many of them aren't "affiliated with highly organized extremist groups" doesn't mean they're not radical leftists.

I'm a leftist radical and I've never participated in a riot.

Pre-American Revolution - the Colonists were split.

The Conservatives were still obeying King George because they were too AFRAID to oppose him.

Meanwhile - The Liberals had finally decided they wanted liberty from royal rule - even to their deaths.

The wanted a radical departure toward freedom:
such human ideals as - equality under the law, equal justice under the law, freedom to pursue happiness, a free press, freedom of speech, no taxation without representation, freedom to assemble, freedom of religion including no religion, the ability to provide for their common defense, majority rule, etc, etc, etc.

They not only fought and died in a Revolutionary War. Later they even fought a Civil War - over the unspeakable practice of enslaving humans from Africa - including separating families.

There’s a reason we find the word riot in the word patriot.

Once Mad King Trump is off his throne and his zombies under Q go to war against America’s diverse, majority population - we can only hope the military officers who have spoken out against Trump will be able to keep control of their enlisted to capture the armed American terrorists seeking to defend their mentally ill, TV reality star, cowardly, lying, leader.

None of that had anything to do with liberals.

Trump’s the mad (mentally ill) king. His cult members are Q believin’ armed American terrorists.

The majority of Americans don’t support Trump. And now that his words and behaviors are finally so dangerous as to finally convince republican party hold-outs he’s mentally ill - it’s only a matter of time until he’s no longer in governmental power. Via this election or not.

He may remain in cultural power, however, through his tweets and likely a radio or TV or internet platform show.

So armed white supremacy groups and lone wolves who love Trump will still be a threat at large.

Trump’s FBI chief has testified to Congress that these white supremacy nuts in our nation are a big FBI concern right now.

For their time the founding fathers were quite radical.

The Framers were radical in not wanting a king. They didn't like autocratic rule. The idea was a representative form of government which was radical and liberal for the time.

What a weird article. Recurring theme of " ... Oh, it was their first time getting in trouble. So what if they set stuff on fire and destroy things. Cut 'em some slack ...".

The overall theme was that it’s unusual that their crimes were handled at the federal level and not the state level where these things have been typically handled in the past.
