I can't help but credit divine providence that misguided accelerationists haven't staged a false flag attack. There was one guy caught with national guard copycat gear who might have been on his way to do something like that but it's amazing others haven't planned and executed such measures. It would be incredibly easy and during chaos like this there's a high chance the perpetrators could get away with it too.At some point I fully anticipate they’ll end up messing with someone who is mentally ill, on drugs, or just snapped who pulls out a weapon and starts just firing into the crowd.
The media will try to exploit that for all its worth but in practice it’s likely to have a chilling effect on the protests. A lot of why they’re so aggressive now is they believe they can do whatever they want and when protestors start getting shot(even if it’s just a single incident of someone shooting up a protest) will make a lot of the casuals stop showing up.
