How do we deal with our sides anger?

So I was surfing through twitter and came across this lovely clip. We don't know how it all started of course, but the Right is already
mobilizing to use clashes like this against us.

Over the last few months our side has been attacking politicians, bystanders and alt right out of anger and its giving the Right ammo to twist public perception against us. They probably have a big list of assaults ready just to shove into our face to shut us up now. Just look at these

I don't believe all these assaults are the lefts fault some of these could be just anarchists trying to instigate things or Magats successfully goading people into attacking them. One thing is true though is we can't just let people throw stuff or punch other people because we hate what they believe. We need to fight these people by using words and legal means. Don't let them win by goading you into a fight. If you're at an event and see our side ready to pounce you need to step in and deescalate the situation. We are going to need to deal with more and more of these events in the coming months and for sure after the 2020 election.

Hundreds of Current and Former Law Enforcement Officers Reportedly Found in Extremist Facebook Group

Hundreds of current and former police officers and other law enforcement personnel are members of “Confederate, anti-Islam, misogynistic or anti-government militia groups” on Facebook, according to an investigation by the U.S. Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal News posted on Friday.
Reveal’s data is from prior to mid-2018, when Facebook removed a function that allowed downloading of membership lists from groups. Reveal wrote it created two separate lists of “members of extremist groups and members of police groups,” then compared them to find 14,000 cross-matches. Reveal further checked to see which of those accounts belonged to individuals with a verifiable history of employment in law enforcement (as opposed to people with personal ties to or an interest in the profession), finding “almost 400 users were indeed either currently employed as police officers, sheriffs or prison guards or had once worked in law enforcement.”


Reveal wrote that some 150 of the officers in question were involved with “violent anti-government groups”

The Black Feminists Who Saw the Alt-Right Threat Coming

Before Gamergate, before the 2016 election, they launched a campaign against Twitter trolls masquerading as women of color. If only more people had paid attention.

Shafiqah Hudson remembers the moment she realized something was off. She saw a tweet from an account she had never seen before: “#EndFathersDay because I’m tired of all these white women stealing our good black mens.” Something about the grammar—not to mention the idea that black women wanted to abolish Father’s Day because of interracial dating—just felt too cartoonish to be real. That day, Hudson, who tweets as @sassycrass, had a job interview. It was June of 2014, the Friday before Father’s Day. As she typed out her follow-up thank-you note and went through what she calls “the unemployment shuffle,” toggling between social media and email and playing with her cat, she spotted some reactions from people she followed to other suspiciously inflammatory tweets posted by a handful of new Twitter accounts claiming to be black feminists. “#EndFathersDay,” read one. “We’ll bring it back when men stop raping and killing us.”

Hudson began to dig, following “this trail of terrible tweets.” She asked if anyone on her timeline had any idea what was up. No one she knew could verify that the women behind these accounts actually existed. No one had met them in person or encountered them on earlier blogging platforms like LiveJournal or Tumblr or BlackPlanet. Many of the accounts didn’t follow the feminists they were parroting or even the tastemakers of Black Twitter, like Desus and Mero. But more than anything, Hudson said, the clearest red flag was the accounts’ inability to hide their contempt for the very people they were attempting to imitate. They tweeted about collecting welfare checks and smoking weed, with an occasional screed against white people. And most of these accounts spoke a version of African American Vernacular English that no real black person had ever used. “#EndFathersDay,” said one, “until men start seeing they children as more then just ‘fuck trophies.’ ” To casual observers online, #EndFathersDay appeared to be the work of militant feminists, most of whom were seemingly women of color. To Hudson, the ruse was never anything but transparent. “No one who knew or liked a black feminist,” she told me, “was fooled.” But the hashtag was already trending worldwide.
