Most People Arrested at Protests Aren’t Leftist Radicals

Notice that Pakman says that most of the serious arrests were for arson and firearms, i.e. actual insurgent activity like torching perceived enemy outposts and armed expropriation of enemy goods. I have identified seven major factions in the events of the last five months, but only one of the seven actually qualifies as “revolutionary.” The situation has mostly involved do-gooders, cosplayers, cops, and sport rioters, intermixed with people that would qualify as “insurgents” in most societies.

A new analysis from the Associated Press confirms that most people arrested at recent protests are not leftist radicals, as claimed by Donald Trump and Republicans
