    A march sponsored and paid for by Soros and conducted by ANTIFA anarchists. These religious leaders are spineless! They’ll denounce the KKK/neo-nazis (and rightfully so) but they wouldn’t dare critique ANTIFA. I have no hope for the city of ABQ. Its only a matter of time before it becomes an anarchist city where law abiding citizens will be slaughtered if they dare to believe differently than the ANTIFA radical left.
