A Philadelphia Antifa (anti-racist protest group) member who looks more like a cross between 2007 Brittany Spears and one of the bald white supremacists from Orange is the New Black is now in jail after allegedly attacking a police horse. She was in a protest deemed “March Against Sharia” on Saturday when Lisa Simon attacked the Pennsylvania police horse and stabbing it in the neck.
Sampson, the horse, and his human parter were part of Pennsylvania State trooper mounted police who were providing crowd control.
Simon stabbed the horse in the neck with the weapon, but the horse was able to keep composure and continued to work despite his injury. Simon, realizing she had not made headway in her effort, then attempted to obstruct police from moving the crowd along the block where they were working.
She is now is facing a host of charges, including “aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police animal, prohibited offensive weapons, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of administrative law.” She was arraigned Tuesday, and is currently being held on $100,000 bail.
Antifa, of course, disputes that Simon did anything and is urging their comrades-in-arms to rally to her defense on their Facebook page.
Antifa wrote, “A comrade was arrested while trying to demonstrate against an anti-Muslim rally in Harrisburg, PA. The charges are entirely fabricated and do not reflect what actually happened during the incident,” and then described Simon as a political prisoner.
They somehow don’t see that what Simon did was wrong since it was done in the act of protesting for what they believe is right.
The horse is recovering and expected to be fine.
