Sadly, as you probably might have guessed, it was only a handful of Antifa protesters, and the relied upon a ring of Sturgis Police officers to keep them safe from the crown which would have likely “tarred and feathered” them — hey, it’s all black — had to had the chance.

That is right up to the point where the Antifa leader decided he wanted to incite the crowd, so the Sturgis Police took him down.



This seems to be the only incident that took place, and the Police were well prepared to not let things get out of hand.  As you can see it looks like only 5-6 Antifa-clad protesters were involved — and about 10,000 motorcycle enthusiasts.  It is kind of surprising there aren’t more videos up yet, but if this is all that happened then “Antifa Goes To Sturgis” was kind of a non-event.

The truly sad fact is that if Antifa/BLM ever decided to venture out of their safe little protest zones of ultra-liberal cities like Seattle and Portland, they would find the fight they claim they want.

Both sides are willing and able.  But I think Antifa/BLM dramatically overestimate the staying power of their “cause”, and dramatically underestimate the level of antipathy that a large majority of the country has for them, their views, and their tactics.

There will be ground somewhere in the not-too-distance future where the two sides meet in numbers too great for the police to control.
