I’d bet that this describes the protesters in the United States as well

This was Berlin, but I have few doubts that the same would hold true here:

92% of left-wing activists live with their parents and one in three is unemployed, study of Berlin protesters finds

  • Figures were compiled by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution

  • Of those arrested for politically-motivated offences, 84 per cent were men

  • The majority, 72 per cent, were aged between 18 and 29

  • Of offences against a person, four out of five cases were against police officers

The vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested on suspicion of politically-fuelled offences in Berlin are young men who live with their parents, a new report found.

The figures, which were published in daily newspaper Bild revealed that 873 suspects were investigated by authorities between 2003 and 2013.

Of these 84 per cent were men, and 72 per cent were aged between 18 and 29.

More than half of the arrests were made in the Berlin districts of Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Mitte, mostly during demonstrations.

A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents.

The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

Note that the First Amendment recognizes the right of the people peaceably to assemble to petition the government for a redress of grievances. It has been the ‘peaceably’ part that has been missing.

The irony of the limo fire is that it belonged not to one of the Top 1%, but was a rental belonging to a Muslim immigrant trying to make a living in New York City.

Those are not peaceable actions, nor are they the actions of rational, sensible citizens. More, they are the kind of actions one would expect from a population a third of whom are unemployed, and 92% of whom are still living with their parents, people who aren’t supporting themselves but are dependent upon other people to take care of them.

Smashing a Starbucks window? That’s the window of a wealthy man, no doubt about that, but it’s also the window of a man who supported Hillary Clinton.1 More, their actions didn’t bother President Trump, but they surely cost the workers at Starbucks to lose hours, and therefore money. Maybe if more of the rioters protesters actually had jobs of their own and were responsible for supporting themselves, they’d have been less likely to do stupid things that hurt working class people. Many on the left try to equate Donald Trump with Adolf Hitler, but it wasn’t the President who ordered this poor-man’s version of Kristallnacht: it was the idiotic ‘protesters’ themselves.

We don’t know what percentage of the American protesters are unemployed or still living with their parents, but for the parents of such immature children I’d say that they need to be sent to their rooms, without any supper.
