I am so sick and tired of the anarchists who tack onto peaceful protests [View all]

to do what I am not sure.. I do not know what they stand for.. To be honest with you they sound like the Bannon right wing.. The people I am talking about run around masked and threatening whole groups of people.. they destroy everything around them... They did the same thing during Black Lives Matter Protests.
