Overnight, more unrest in the United States as protesters in Oakland took to the streets, and then the highway, in protest of the vents in Charlottesville.
From last night:
If you're driving thru Oakland, best avoid Broadway & arterial roads. Protest marching west on 14th St. right now. Also YG deployed. pic.twitter.com/3e4VyJoY9q

Look at that graphic and witness the crass opportunism. Antifa and Occupy Oakland blocked off a highway and set off fireworks, claiming they were helping Charlottesville in some way. In what way that helped Virginia remains a mystery, but it probably helped Occupy Oakland a lot. Their signs must have needed a good dusting before being put back in use, the group and others like it having been out of the news for so long.

See? They’re “helping.”
