Little background information here: May Day in Seattle featured a protest against Trump’s immigration policies, the Border Wall, and “fascism” in general, which, of course, brought out the counter-protesters.

For the most part it was relatively peaceful, with the cops doing a great job of keeping the groups separate and letting everyone exercise their First Amendment rights.

A knock em down, drag em out battle for the ages.
HEY SMUG COMMENTATORS: Luke isn’t mad. Ha ha ha ha ha. He’s actually laughing.
Oh and FYI dumbasses –
He’s not a Proud Boy or a Patriot Prayer. Egg on your face for thinking the guy wearing a Patriot Prayer t-shirt at a Proud Boy rally was a Patriot Prayer or a Proud Boy.
“I have ADHD and Autism” talk about a motherfucking mic drop.

So while I did laugh at the struggle to rip the sign apart, knowing what I know now, that he wasn’t even mad about it and also is autistic with attention deficit disorder, I have to name the winner Luke, by default.
