31 arrested in Idaho, apparently for "riot preparation"--although no specific charges filed; no offensive weapons found

"Be on the safe side" policing now dominates when it comes to anything that looks like what might be considered by authorities as "White Extremist."

The "Patriot Front" would better be described as "Nativist" rather than "White-Supremist" as their documents reveal no racial animosity, only limitations on the political power of first-generation immigrants. They apparently intended to protest Pride events in Coeur d'Alene but no guns, ammunition were found in the police-targeted U-Haul--just body armor and a single smoke bomb. How does that stack up against what Antifa is likely to bring to the event?

Is protest in which the protesters prepare to defend themselves (without weapons) now a crime?

    Not surprising, a violation of these folks constitutional right to speech and assembly. Still, I suspect theatrics to advance an agenda. The timing is interesting.

    The operational bias pointed out with the observation that these guys are arrested for conspiracy to riot while antifa and blm were allowed to riot...This is a key point. Pretty clear message.

      BLM and Antifa are the current brown shirts of the Neo Communist (D) party and will get a pass. Anyone protesting the left's agenda is a "right wing extremist" and if the protesters happen to be white people standing up for their rights, which also happens to be about 70% of the population, then they get the "white supremacist" label.

    Pig pigs: You are being arrested for suspicion of wanting to riot while white.
    Me: Please cite specific statute and is that a felony or a misdemeanor?

    Well now we know that Northern Idaho is not a patriot safe space. The Kalifornication has apparently passed a tipping point.

      Coeur D 'Alene and Boise are still majority conservative. Idaho is and will always stand for conservative values.

      Elections here typically don't have a Lib with a chance in hell and the decision is between a constitutional conservative or a RINO. RINO won the governor race a few weeks ago.

        So is this heavy handed action a conservative “law and order” thing than? It just seems a little left, considering Patriot Front doesn’t have a history of doing more than marching and flag waving while their designated front man spews platitudes into a megaphone.

        Thanks for the Map Link. Very handy. Makes me want to live In Oklahoma right by the borders with Missouri and Arkansas. In the unlikely event that one state gets a little to “COVIDY” with restrictions. Freedom should be a 15 min drive away. Idaho would be the best because of Redoubt reasons. But I question it’s long term political health.

    Why, once placed on their knees and handcuffed, how come they were not de-masked? This seems odd, doesn’t? Do we have a right to anonymity once arrested?

    You know the News media is lying to you when they use the term “White supremist”

    Patriot do not cover their faces…

    True patriots would have been armed. I don’t have to search far or high to find this false flag.

    They were arrested for 'Conspiracy to Riot? Wonder what the sentence or fine is for this? They let BLM paint their signs on building and in the street, break out windows and bully people and they just stand around and watch them. Seems a git lopsided to me. Guess it's all about what color your skin is.
