That sounded interesting, until I saw those bozos running around in tac gear. Don't they realize that throws their credibility goes out the window?
Can you please explain to me how wearing gear throws my credibility out the window?
If we were wearing nazi uniforms or waving nazi flags... ok, sure. But when we are facing a violent group of people with sticks, shields, gas masks, and helmets, please explain to me how having body armor and a rifle is so radically beyond the realm of what is appropriate that you declare us to have suffered a loss of credibility?
If anything, it is only (and I do mean ONLY) wearing that gear that gets the job done. We have had antifa folks heckle and harass our people who were either unarmed, or only carrying concealed, but I have escorted groups to their vehicles and had antifa types turn tail and scatter when they see two of us all geared up escorting a handful of our rally attendees through a parking lot. So, being a member of the Safety Staff (We are not Security, and cannot refer to ourselves as such) of TITFF, I can tell you what has and has not happened at our Houston and San Antonio rallies.
What has your experience been at these rallies?
Also, doing or not doing something based on how it will be portrayed by the dishonest media is the height of foolishness. I could be dressed in a suit and tie, and simply because I am at a rally to support anything that the liberals do not like, I will be regarded as a right-wing nutjob by the media. So, how I am dressed has nothing to do with it. Being dressed in that gear increases my effectiveness and ability to do what I am there to do, and what the liberal media and timid Texans have to say about it is of no consequence to me.
