This truly is one of the strangest stories I’ve heard:
A group of 18 people dressed in black, wearing masks, wielding steel batons and hammers and claiming to be extreme anti-racists allegedly stormed a suburban Chicago family restaurant in broad daylight to assault a meeting of alleged white supremacists, officials said.
Ten people were injured and at least three required treatment for head wounds as a result of the attack Saturday at the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinley Park, Ill., a quiet Chicago suburb. The restaurant sustained $15,000 in damages including broken plates, glasses and furniture.
“I’ve been mayor for 31 years,” Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki tells ABC News, “and I’ve never heard of anything stranger than this.”
A violent, anti-racist group, mind you a White anti-rtacist group, attacking white supremacists. This is a new one.
But with that being said, it is also not the way to a better society. I am down with their sentiment, but can’t agree with their tactic. We can’t beat stupidity by also being stupid ourselves. But I am always glad to see Whites who stand up against racism. So it is a tough one to read about. Glad to know the anti-racist group is out there. But hope they are smarter about how they get their feelings across.
Here is the full story.
