(INTELLIHUB) — Supporters of President Donald Trump took part in a rally in Huntington Beach, California Saturday where they clashed with counter-protesters before four of the anti-Trump agitators were arrested.
According to multiple reports and video from the scene, numerous fights broke out after a women organizer for the pro-Trump rally was attacked and doused with pepper spray, leading to a brawl that left one anti-Trump protester wondering what hit him.
“Four counter-protesters were arrested, three for illegal use of pepper spray and one for assault and battery, Kevin Pearsall, a spokesman for the California State Parks Police said on Saturday evening,” Reuters reported despite the wide-spread downplaying of the violence by the left in most of the mainstream media.
“The fights appeared to start in the early afternoon when around a dozen anti-Trump protesters dressed in all black refused to move from a bike path to allow a larger group of pro-Trump supporters taking part in the Make America Great Again rally to pass. The confrontation escalated into a fight with more skirmishes quickly breaking out.”
The Reuters report continued, “At least one person was pepper-sprayed by an anti-Trump protester, Pearsall said. Park police estimated that 2,000 Trump supporters flocked to the stretch of coastline located south of the ocean-side community of Huntington Beach. Around 20 counter-protesters attended, Pearsall said.”
While violence is obviously never the answer, its important to note that the hard-left has brought this upon themselves, especially when you consider that they have in the recent past claimed that punching Trump supporters was actually an honorable thing to do.
Unfortunately, Soros-funded agitators are only increasing their resistance to all things Trump (while seemingly working for the interests of the deep state) with what happened in California being only the latest example of what is becoming all too common in America.
