Folks! The basement dwellers are rising up on a day they aren't grounded, but it didn't end good for this Antifa "commander" who dropped to a fetal position and started crying once he was busted by police as he carried a flamethrower.

First of all, a flamethrower is AWESOME, but not when it's being carried in a protest by an Antifa boy who may or may not be up to no good. Besides, who actually brings this sort of thing to a protest anyway? A flamethrower is something you take out in the field and spark things up to show off for your friends while listening to WAP by Cardi B. Flamethrowers are NOT to be carried around during a protest for, well, I don't even know what they're protesting about anymore.

But enough from me, the captain of the peanut gallery. Let's see what the official news report and police had to say:

A Neenah man had a flamethrower, smoke grenades and fireworks during a demonstration in Green Bay Saturday night, according to police and prosecutors.

Matthew Banta, 23, is charged with obstructing an officer and two counts of felony bail jumping.

The criminal complaint says Banta “is known to be a violent Antifa member who incites violence in otherwise relatively peaceful protests.” Police say he’s known as “Commander Red.”

Green Bay police say they were called for “a whole bunch of white people with sticks, baseball bats and helmets headed... towards the police” on Walnut St. near Webster Ave.

“I don’t know who comes to a protest with a baseball bat for anything other than criminal or illegal activity,” said Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith.

A responding officer says he saw four individuals walking towards a protest with baseball bats. One man was wearing a metal helmet with goggles and military-style gear with multiple pouches, and was carrying an Antifa flag. When the officer pulled his squad car in front of the group, they ran away. The officer caught Banta, who was carrying the flag, and says Banta “dropped into the fetal position and began crying.” He accused the officer of lying on him; the officer replied nobody was on him.

Banta acknowledged he was headed to the Green Bay protest but denied he was planning to incite a riot.

A Brown County Court Commissioner set a $2,500 cash bond during his initial appearance on Monday.

OMG this is hilarious folks. I thought this might be a fake news story, but then I saw the source and it was a LOCAL news source. The local news don't play around. They're not CNN.

Anyway, if you see me carrying a flamethrower this weekend, don't say nothing about it. Just enjoy the show. I may roast a marshmallow or something.

Before we go, I must say, if I was carrying a weapon at a protest, then it would probably be a TRIDENT. Actually, it would be a fully automatic TRIDENT.

What about you?
