Anti-Trump Berkeley Protests Breaks Out into Sporadic Violence

Anti-Trump protests erupted yesterday on April 15th. Otherwise known as Tax Day.

Leftists were protesting to demand President Trump release his tax returns and Trump supporters were defending our Commander-in-Chief from the radical and masked “Antifa” protesters.

As has been the case, the protests centered in leftist haven Berkeley, California.

Trump supporters weren’t content to let these violent leftists get away with it and decided to strike back against their violence and hateful rhetoric:

More via the LA Times:

Fistfights broke out near Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, where Trump supporters had scheduled a rally. Fireworks and smoke bombs were thrown into the crowd, and a few demonstrators were doused with pepper spray.

Both groups threw rocks and sticks at each other and used a large trash bin as a battering ram as the crowd moved around the perimeter of the park. One bank boarded up its ATMs before the rally as a precaution.

Pro-Liberty group the Oath Keepers‘ leader Stewart Rhodes and Bikers for Trump were on the scene to protect protesters and keep the Antifa socialists at bay:

But Rhodes credited Berkeley police for new tactics that mostly kept the two sides apart and “our side chilled and relaxed,” though sporadic fights broke out among both groups throughout the morning and afternoon.

“It’s getting sporty,” said Oath Keeper John Karriman, 59, who is from Missouri and was among the group’s security leaders.

A usual, Trump supporters were keeping the peace while radical leftists wanted to engage in violence and destruction.

President Trump is trying to rebuild this country and bring us all together. Rioters and Antifa want America divided and want war in the streets.

President Trump should do the right thing and label Antifa a terrorist group. These are people who only want destruction and violence. Enough is enough.
