Anti-mask laws
« on: August 17, 2017, 10:27:54 PM »
Banning masks at political demonstrations and protests would probably cut down on violence.  If instigators couldn't mask their identities, they'd be less likely to instigate.  They could be facially ID'd and charged later.

So I was wondering which states have anti-mask laws and I found this on Wikipedia:

"Anti-mask laws date back to the mid-20th century when states and municipalities passed them to stop the violent activities of the Ku Klux Klan, whose members typically wore hoods of white linen to conceal their identities."

Oh, the irony.  Nowadays we have leftists concealing their identities at public gatherings:

A list of states with anti-mask laws.  If you live in one of them, and Antifa/BLM is coming to town, please REMIND your local cops and news media about the anti-mask laws:

... It is true that anarchism is profoundly anti-authoritarian, but its popular association with violence (wild-eyed bearded men throwing bombs) is exaggerated, even fictionalized by the very forces threatened by it, namely governments and the media with vested interests in things as they are.  As with any subversive political and economic movement, some proponents became impatient and felt justified in striking out in vengeance or justice.

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
