For all the pontificating about "law and order" lately, it appears that
we are more at risk from right wing extremists.

Over last year, the Anti-Defamation League reports that there were 42
killings by political extremists and 38 were committed by right-wing
extremists.

We now have 13 people arrested so far in what appears to be a conspiracy
to kidnap the Governor of Michigan and take control of the Capital.
Some of the people arrested also participated in armed intimidation of
legislators earlier this year. This is the Wolverine Militia at work.
Definitely not peaceful demonstrations, but an attack that was planned
to occur before the election.

What is wrong with these people?

I certainly can't and won't support any right wing militia, or any
militia for that matter. Can you say the same of ANTIFA?

False equivalence. ANTIFA is not a formal organization, but a loose
affiliation of people who are motivated to protect the interests of
minorities. You get your panties in a bunch about "riots" when there is
no evidence that the looting and burning is caused by anything other
than individuals who are either opportunists or people who react to
their oppression. Note that there have been instances where Boogaloo
Boys have engaged in destruction to implicate blacks in their hope of
creating a race riot.

As relates to the Presidential campaign, Biden has condemned violence
and supports prosecution. Trump, on the other hand, refuses to say
anything bad about right wing violence and seems to be encouraging it.
When asked if he would condemn the Proud Boys, replied with "Stand back
and stand by." The expression is clearly a call to be prepared to act
when called upon.

Predictable lame response. Left wing black masked rioters waving
ANTIFA banners and setting fire to buildings in Berkeley and Portland
are all members of a century old international socialist organization
-- ANTIFA.

In fact, ANTIFA is a well established international movement ...
"A lot of attention has been paid recently to “antifa,” but where does
it actually come from? Historian Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The
Anti-Fascist Handbook, explains the history and present of
anti-fascist organizing. He talks about tactics, inspirations, and
motivations for anti-fascists throughout the 20th century, and how
that work pertains to today's political moment."

Perhaps you should start a chapter on Orcas?
