    They were idiots to contest with their faces uncovered, I'll grant you that.

    Be that as it may, anybody outed as being a part of what they were doing, however peacefully, is at risk of having their careers ruined, military or civilian.

    An interesting read from a (now) former Trump supporter. Worth a look.

    I Voted for Trump. And I Sorely Regret It.

    Another good one.

    The Week When President Trump Resigned

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/18/o...pgtype=article

    As the worst week in a cursed presidency wound down, I spotted more and more forecasts that Donald Trump would resign, including from Tony Schwartz, who wrote “The Art of the Deal” for Trump and presumably understands his tortured psyche.

    They struck me not as wishful or fantastical.

    They struck me as late.

    Trump resigned the presidency already — if we regard the job as one of moral stewardship, if we assume that an iota of civic concern must joust with self-regard, if we expect a president’s interest in legislation to rise above vacuous theatrics, if we consider a certain baseline of diplomatic etiquette to be part of the equation.

    By those measures, it’s arguable that Trump’s presidency never really began. By those measures, it’s indisputable that his presidency ended in the lobby of Trump Tower on Tuesday afternoon, when he chose — yes, chose — to litigate rather than lead, to attend to his wounded pride instead of his wounded nation and to debate the supposed fine points of white supremacy.

    He abdicated his responsibilities so thoroughly and recklessly that it amounted to a letter of resignation. Then he whored for his Virginia winery on the way out the door.

    I wonder if that could be why Trump said they were anti-police?

    One thing is certain. You don't wear a mask and hide your identity to go be peaceful.



    Maybe I'm wrong. They look like a reasonable bunch.
    About 20 arrests... in a crowd estimated to be in the tens of thousands.... i stand by my point.

    You get more arrests at your average nfl game.
