Austin, Texas was the setting for a dangerous Antifa rally that quickly turned violent. The commies were seen waving flags and disobeying police orders throughout the day. What is most baffling is how these people can protest about oppression when they are in fact the ones doing the oppressing.
Chanting their way through downtown Austin, the capital of Texas, demonstrators denounced Confederate symbolism and called for the dismantling of public works and streets that bear the name of Confederate icons like Robert E. Lee:

Like it or not, the Civil War is a part of our history. These protesters might want to pick up a history book and read it. People on both sides fought and died…black and white!
Only Virginia has more Confederate symbols (which include roads, schools, statues and county names) than Texas.
Austin has already been taking steps to remove public reminders of its history as part of the Confederacy. Just last week Texas House Speaker Joe Strauss called for removal of a plaque near the Capitol that asserts slavery was not the underlying cause of the Civil War. And finally, after years of resistance, administrators at the University of Texas Austin decided to take down Confederate statues on campus.
How long will we allow these people to get away with their crimes?
