Swastikas, razor blades found on Chicago park signs

3400-3499 N. Kilbourn Ave.

    Swastikas, razor blades found on Chicago park signs

    I suspect antifa of planting the Swastikas and razor blades.

    This doesn't pass the sniff test for legitimacy.

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    That was my point when the EB censors deleted my first post.

    I mentioned that this incident had "false flag" written all over it, especially in light to the illegal migrant hordes on the southern border.

    If you've ever visited Kilbourne Park recently, it's not exactly a fertile National Socialist recruiting demographic.

  • Weebis Politically Incorrect Thought Criminal

    They're Soros funded anarchists. A lot are rejects from the "black brigade" anarchists that were in Chicago for the NATO conference a few years back.

    I'm sure Starbucks, and Target would hire antifa members. They're of similar ilk.
