[Ed. – Most readers can guess this involves Antifa and counter-protesters who style themselves “patriots.” I have no beef that I know of with the “Proud Boys” (I don’t believe what the MSM say about them; the MSM lie about everything), but the more they show up seeming ready to fight with Antifa, the more harm they do. The Oath Keepers have it right: don’t show up to “protest” and get in random scuffles; show up prepared, professional, and intimidating, to establish perimeters and protect order and decency for the law-abiding. And yes, Olympia is the capital of Washington. We have file images from Seattle.]
