A free speech rally in Berkeley organized by Trump supporters turned to chaos today when Antifa came to protest the rally with M-80s, rocks, sticks and knives to shut down Trump supporters. Antifa is an abbreviation for “anti-fascist,” and is a group of people generally in their twenties who view anyone who isn’t far-left as fascist, racist or nazi. They are also rumored to be rioters organized and funded by globalist billionaire George Soros.
Brawls broke out at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park where at least one Trump supporter was treated for pepper spray. As crowds took to Allston Way, violence continued, although it is unclear how many people were seriously injured. Police officers arrested upwards of a dozen people by early afternoon, but as the day progressed officers monitored the situation without involvement. When multiple officers were confronted by a camera crew and asked why they weren’t helping the people being attacked, they refused to respond other than to say they were following orders.
Antifa is no stranger to chaos and can be seen in protests throughout America and Europe. They are known to dress in all black with black masks so police cannot identify them. They were on hand destroying property at the U.C. Berkeley protest of Milo Yiannopoulos as well as Trump’s inauguration protest in Washington and can be seen busting up Bank of America.
With hundreds of free speech supporters gathering in Berkeley today, Antifa had met its match and were run out of the city by the end of the day.
