The headline article about the Patriot vigilantes is most notable to me by the lack of comments generated. This is what hate does. It prevents citizens from discussing the dangers of their rhetoric because of fear of retaliatory violence. We know these thugs will stop at nothing to intimidate opposition and they are continuing to get away with it. Portland Police seem more interested in protecting fascism than citizens.
