At least some of these members were involved with the group “Riot Kitchen” that claims to supply food to protesters.
In a video promo of their group on YouTube they claim “This Food Fights Fascists.”
Andy Ngo replied to the Kenosha police’s tweet and wrote “The out of state group gathering gasoline canisters is @riotkitchen206. It’s an antifa group that supplies rioters. They claim to only give out food but as authorities in Kenosha found, they bring with them much more than that.”
Cops doing their jobs! And allowed to do it! Glorious. Revelatory! We need that brand of justice out here in Portland.
