SCENE: Mitch BERG is waiting to speak to a manager at O’Gara’s about some entertainment business.
Avery LIBRELLE walks into the bar, holding a tin cup, seeking donations for Carlton students with “Triggering Fatigue”. LIBRELLE notices BERG.
BERG: Oh, hey, Avery. How ya doing?
LIBRELLE: Fascists are launching that wave of violence.
BERG: Actually, it’s “Anti”-Fa’s blackshirts that are actually doing the violence.
LIBRELLE: Har di har!
BERG: Remember that episode last March, where a permitted group of Trump supporters were…
LIBRELLE: …where they encountered a group of anti-Fascists who were just minding their own business, and the blame was on both sides.
BERG: That’s your story, and you’re sticking with it?
LIBRELLE: Of course. It’s settled science. Neil DeGrasse Tyson says so.
BERG: Yeah, not so much. One of the snowflakes involved in the attack took the deal. And as part of the deal, he had to admit on the record what happened. Here, let me read fro this bit from Alphanews:
Sagermerek, who initially pled not guilty during his first court appearance, told the court he “maced someone” and had intentions of disturbing the peace when affirming he would plead not guilty.
However, when Taheri and Sagermerek went over the events of the March 4 Trump rally, Sagermerek contradicted himself by stating that he intended to counter-protest peacefully, though he later admitted to carrying mace in his pockets.
Describing Trump supporters as protesters and the alt-right, Sagermereck told the court he was covered head-to-toe in black, wearing a studded jacket and bandana over his face, that he arrived with several other people.
Acknowledging Trump supporters had built a wall to keep counter-protesters away from their event, Sagermereck told the court that is when he grabbed the canister of mace and “sprayed it at one of the Trump supporters.” He announced the attack to be one that was “unprovoked and not in defense.”
Seven other counter-protesters have been charged and are currently awaiting trial.
LIBRELLE: Ah. So the Trump supporters tried to keep the counter-protesters…
BERG: …in their bandanas and blackshirt-wear…
LIBRELLE: …away from their demonstration? Well, there you go. Hate crime.
BERG: Of course it is.
But LIBRELLE has already walked to the other bar to try to order a gluten-free diet Pepsi.
