    Maybe some of you saw that Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale was attacked by over 500 people last night and many of the surrounding businesses were also attacked.

    I have an ex-gf with a store in that area and reached out to make sure she and the store were Ok and could I help in anyway.

    She said they had moved much of her store inventory into the back office and storeroom and put up tarps in the front window to look like they were closed, empty or being remodeled.

    Keep in mind, the gathering was encouraged on Twitter and FB and Scottsdale police knew it was coming (because Fasion Square Mall had put out a tweet saying they were closing at 5 pm last night) and did nothing.

    Well, she sent me a picture of what she said were hundreds of fliers around the area on store fronts and street signs.

    Not fake news people.

    Given the content and the phone number, you have to wonder of the flyer was actually put up by their opposition.

    Honestly I don’t know. But I have observed that many people quite vociferously in favor of Donald Trump like to try and bash on the Antifa. Since Scottsdale tends to have a lot of Trump supporters, I would not be surprised that someone put these up to try and raise people’s ire. But that is all speculation frankly.

    I just think the content and the phone number ringing the Democrats is odd.

    How do you parse it?

    Funny thing - since I fly GA aircraft, the first thing I thought when I saw the title was “oh dear, I hope the Antifa don’t have an aero Branch now”

    I guess that would explain the email address to the left of the number: [email protected] and the "Funded by George Soros" down to the right.

    This has to be a hoax.

    That’s what I was verifying, it would have been more instructive if I had spoken to someone.

    I wonder if they were getting inundated by calls, and just stopped answering.

    Here’s a pic of another one with a date in the bottom of 4/16. Can’t remember what happened then?
    I don’t doubt there are paid agent provocateurs coming in from out of town all over the country.
    But these flyers seem like made up anti antifa things to me? If they are getting recruited and paid its all digital, online, anonymous and on the dark web most likely.

    Hey, did I say that? Personally I think they are fairly mixed up.

    But I do also think it is the case that a determination to spend time bashing Antifa is more prevalent amongst strident Trump supporters than say amongst Biden supporters. Thus my index of suspicion of a local posting some fake signs would be higher in Scottsdale than Tempe.

    That kind of nuanced thinking sometimes is a hard sell here.

    It could well be someone’s idea of satire making fun of Antifa.

    Things like that really twist ones brain.
    As I said I don’t doubt there are cells who actually do this. But if they are smart enough to organize them I don’t think they’d be so stupid to have multiple pages actually printed. It would all be online and only accessible to a few people. when I see things like this printed it does kinda make me think somebody mad all this up to make others look bad?

    The truth is out there somewhere...I am of the thought there is a wide network of support for these disruptive activities. Proving it in a court of law is a very different exercise that may be futile.
    Trust but verify.
