Even as the Electoral College is meeting to presumably name Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United states, protests by Trump supporters continue. And these most recent “Stop the Steal” protests were not surprisingly marred by violence perpetrated by ANTIFA and other left-wing radical groups.
Chaos flooded the streets of Washington D.C. over the weekend, as Antifa set their sights on supporters of the President once again. Following multiple “Stop the Steal” rallies in Washington D.C. on Saturday, police reported at least 23 arrests related to protesting and riots. Among those arrested, 10 were charged with misdemeanor assault, six with assaulting a police officer and four with rioting. One suspect was caught carrying an illegal stun gun.
Footage of the event shows demonstrators going toe-to-toe with one another and skirmishing with fireworks while police attempted to intervene.
At least four people were stabbed in the ensuing chaos and by the end of the night, eight people in total were taken to the hospital. Two of the victims were valiant police officers, who were injured while protecting supporters of the President from crazed Antifa agitators.
This all occurred as attendees of the rallies said they were simply there to “peacefully support the President.”
“Well, we’re from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the reason we drove here to D.C. was to support our President, Donald J. Trump,” an attendee told OAN News. “And in our hearts, we know, in our minds, we know that this election was stolen.”
According to reports, the President’s supporters were even forced to march with umbrellas and shields near the end of the rally. Despite the resistance, President Trump’s supporters were clear with their message — They will continue to fight fake news and defend the Constitution.
