Not really. One one side the "fire" is words; on the other side it is bricks and blocking public access. I call your attention to Berkeley.

 

Granted, in the Charlottesville situation both sides came armed. Who was the aggressor and who was the defender is up for debate. But one side did have an announced and permitted demonstration planned.

 

And I have seen nothing about "ownership". Possibly you have quotes.

Mostly anarchists who do not believe government will protect the population against threats like the alt-right, Nazis, KKK, White Lives Matter, and other terrorist organizations. I get the feeling they take a lot of their lessons from the Jews in Nazi Germany. You can imagine what THOSE lessons are.
