Let me lay a few things out for you here regarding Commies... they are relentless. They employ a range of tactics that Americans, inculcated with "football", "basketball" and "golf" have no concept of. Consider if you will that the national sports of Russia include Chess and Fencing, while ours appears to be a combination of taking "selfies" and the childs' game of "checkers".
For a bracing look at Communist tactics, go read THIS. I follow with this summary:
1) Rigid enforcement and promulgation of party "line" in all things.
2) Generation of "pressure Groups".
3) Contact and generation of "missionary" elements.
4) Discrediting "bourgeois reformation".
The activists, agitators and "community organizers" are part of the Communist Vanguardists. They build up cadre of core members that will weather any political storm, like will surely follow Trump's November final victory. While the common communist tactical meme of "the worse, the better" can be seen in history... understand that Chicago tonight was a classic case of it - organized, planned, pre meditated mayhem in hopes of damaging the Trump campaign. The tactic is used to generate over-reaction and a follow on concession by The Powers That Be. That it did not happen tonight is a puzzle that will play out for years.
The mass, angry mob will make a comeback after a long hiatus. Consider this event to be a dress rehersal, the foot soldiers of Communism have not a lot to lose, so they have a built in incentive and competitive advantage in being less restrained with the ultra-violence. The spectacle may emerge during this troubled time of Police allowing angry mobs not just space to destroy, but space to kill "the other" by orders of the Department of (In) Justice. Crazy sounding, but who would have thought we'd be where we are now on the continuum of societal insanity?
If Trump loses in November, expect the Communist core elements to go into over drive. Show trials, lawfare, "SWAT-ing", parallel construction and all that. If he wins (and he likely will), what choice does he have domestically but to do unto others before they do unto him (and those who elected him)? Given the invective and pent up rage of the progressive lemming horde, 2 things could happen... ok, 3 things.
A clip from "Blazing Saddles" that somewhat captures the essence of the night
1) A political compromise is reached and we all live happily ever after in a utopian world
2) The Country comes apart, slowly at first as regional differences and even state level differences become more pronounced and then it will go logarithmic in final death throes
3) Through sheer coercion, the nation state is held together for a while, maybe a few more decades, before choice 2 happens.

For those of you who need a gig to cover some expenses, you may want to try signing up for a "PIRG", a "public interest research group". They go door to door fund raising and are a gateway into Communist activism. You can meet people there who are gate keepers for deeper red mischief. If you go this route, keep your pie hole shut, ears open and learn the ropes. Take copious notes when you get home. There are other avenues to infiltrate Communist front organizations as a private citizen, you are a bright bunch - figure it out. Just make sure you separate functions and mind your security. I would recommend looking at and understanding "Hacker Opsec", an article by firstname.lastname@example.org , as well as grugq.github.io
Don't misunderstand - Communists are nasty bits of work. They have many puppets, the real controller is a few layers deep. When you see the thugs, know that the thugs have controllers, and the tactical controller reports to someone else. Use of a scanner might reveal some of the communications. You might consider use of a SDR (software defined radio) in a nearby cafe, or a frequency counter in your pocket to start figuring out the comms.
Owning a SDR like the one linked above allows you to use your own personal laptop as a frequency spectrum analyzer so you can find signals of interest (ie: communist radio communications directing and controlling mob activity - it is highly unlikely all the coordination will be via cell phones). It's low key enough that it won't earn a second glance while you sip your latte at the local cafe in the middle of the excitement.
Street fighting with Communists is a rough endeavor. We are likely to see it unfold, hopefully not as bad as the Maidan in Ukraine, but you never know. Such is not for the very young, the old, or infirm. It is pitiless and unblinking. It is best to avoid this situation, as brawling with people who have nothing to lose and are seeking outlets to vent is a poor gamble.
