Because they were protecting the speech rights of Trump supporters, Antifa attacked police for favoring “Nazis.”
Why Antifa attacked police yesterday is simple: the police acknowledged the right of the right to assemble in public and speak freely. The media portrays this as Antifa and police clashing. But there is little doubt that the police were defending themselves after Antifa attacked them for protecting conservatives. Naturally, the media tries to disguise what happened.
NBC News reports, “Right-Wing Rally Goes Ahead in Seattle — Despite Violence in Virginia.”
The rally’s organizer, Joey Gibson of the pro-Donald Trump group Patriot Prayer, told a crowd gathered at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle that he was against white supremacy and wanted everyone to have his or her chance at the microphone.
A parade of people denouncing Trump and white supremacy — and chanting “Black Lives Matter” — followed. So did a woman who identified herself as a pro-Trump Kurd.[…]
On the street — on the other side of a metal barricade — counter-protesters faced off with police. One image showed black-clad demonstrators inches from officers in black tactical gear who were draped in pink and green Silly String.
A protest organizer told NBC affiliate KING that police attacked and blocked them from entering the rally.
“I think what they did today was actually a huge disgrace,” the unidentified organizer told the station. “Their job is not to protect Nazis.”[…]
Earlier, Gibson said he would urge his supporters to remain nonviolent during the so-called “Freedom Rally,” which was billed as an event to “promote freedom, free speech, and the power of the human soul.”
So, since Antifa regards all conservatives as “Nazis,” and unworthy of police protection, then the police who do protect such people are “Nazi sympathizers.”
