Does it make me a bad person for laughing everytime a riot baton came down with a thud on any given Leftie rioter?
No, I didn’t think so either.
Anyhow, the comrades over at the Putin-friendly RT.com caught on video Italian cops going full BTFO on a mob of communists and anarchists hell-bent on doing what communists and anarchists do best.
Using the Leftist code word of “anti-fascists” to describe rioters, RT.com predictably fell back on the reliable MSM tactic of referring to anyone who so happens to disagree with them as “right-wing groups”.
As reported by a rather sorrowful RT.com from the Italian city of Modena;
The incident took place on Friday evening. A local far-right group called ‘Defend Modena’ organized a rally in the center of the town to protest against the Jus soli – or the right of the soil – a legal principle that allows anyone born on the territory of a state to obtain its citizenship. Italy currently does not use this principle in granting citizenship but local lawmakers in Modena have discussed the possibility of its introduction.
Footage provided by the Ruptly video new agency shows the anti-fascists throwing what look like thunder-flashes, firecrackers and smoke pellets at the police with the officers in riot gear subsequently charging into the crowd. The video also shows officers beating people lying on the street with batons and attempting to detain some of the protesters by force.
According to local media, police also used water cannon to disperse the crowd. The protesters also reportedly engaged in clashes and scuffles with police on several occasions. However, there were no reports of any serious injuries, although local media said that some people were “bruised” in the brawls and at least two people were arrested.
