Leave it to the low-rent thugs of the “Antifa” movement to attack an elderly man.
In case you are wondering, Antifa is a portmanteau that means “anti-fascist” and the group is convinced that Trump is a fascist dictator.
According to the East Bay Times, Antifa members attacked protesters at a pro-Trump rally.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The Salt Lake Tribune reported that the “March 4 Trump” began at the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park in Berkeley. The location was just 10 blocks away from the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, which naturally attracted a lot of counterprotesters — some of whom turned violent.
The man who was pepper-sprayed was identified as Jim Templeton, a septuagenarian who had exchanged some heated words with the counterprotesters. However, no evidence existed that he was violent, only that he had confronted anti-Trump protesters.
“These people just want to fight,” said Nancy Chase, a Trump supporter. “They are anarchists in black, and it’s not what we are about. I just want to stand up for liberty.”
The event resulted in 10 arrests and at least seven injuries.
This type of behavior is so typical of the “peaceful” left, who believe that only they should have the right to express their opinion.
