Antifa Getting Ready For Their New Role in American Society

 9/4/20 Reason:

"YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO FILM!" is a cry you hear incessantly at protests in Portland, Oregon, always shouted at close range to your face by after-dark demonstrators. You can assert that, yes, you can film; you can point out that they themselves are filming incessantly; you can push their hands away from covering your phone; you can have your phone record them stealing your phone—all of these things have happened to me—and none will have any impact on their contention that "YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO FILM" and its occasional variation, "PHOTOGRAPHY EQUALS DEATH!"

You know, like "Silence equals violence!"   It is an interesting article about how the only authorized media--the ones the mob allows to film--are leftists with mainstream associations.  This being Reason, they have to pretend that there is some conservative effort to twist what is going on:

Both sides are getting their information through purposely bottlenecked media reports, and the results are predictably distorted and dangerous.

Progressives are not being bottlenecked; their reporters are allowed to report for the lamestream media.  Conservatives are attacked; equipment stolen or broken.
