WASHINGTON, DC – On Thursday evening, a mob of Black Lives Matter protesters followed, harassed, and attacked pro-Trump supporters outside the White House, including an elderly couple wearing “Trump 2020” t-shirts and a Republican senator.

Videos and images of the harassment were shared on social media. One video shows a protester shouting through a megaphone at the couple:
“Hey! Hey! Hey! Hi. Hi. Get the f*** out!”
The elderly man responded:
Shortly after the verbal encounter, a female protester can be seen running at the man and pushing him. The man continued walking as protesters forcefully pushed him from behind. The man said that he was there to watch the fireworks.
Thursday night was when President Donald Trump delivered his nomination acceptance speech on the last night of the Republican National Convention. Fireworks were scheduled to be set off later in the evening at the National Mall as part of the event.

As the elderly couple continued to walk and ignore the protesters, protesters threw water on the man and then sucker-punched him, knocking him to the ground. According to one journalist, Julio Rosas, when the man got up, there was blood on his face.

Protesters had gathered outside the White House to protest Trump’s acceptance speech. This elderly man and woman were not the only pro-Trump supporters to be harassed on Thursday evening. The National Review reported that a crowd of protesters also harassed Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky as he left the White House.
Videos that have circulated social media appear to show a large group of protesters crowding Paul and his wife shouting, “Breonna Taylor,” “Say her name,” and “No justice, no peace” as they continued to walk down the street.

Police formed a line between the protesters and the couple as they kept walking back to their hotel. Video also shows a protester shoving a police officer, nearly knocking him down. The senator reached out to help steady the officer. He then tweeted this:
“Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”

According to reports, many protesters who held anti-Trump and Black Lives Matter signs and beat drums could be heard from the South Lawn. Hundreds could be heard yelling, “No justice, no peace” and “Join us.”
In addition, protesters harassed many other pro-Trump supporters on Thursday night. Reporter Phillip Nieto tweeted videos of some of the heated confrontations, including one involving two men who were surrounded by a masked mob who kept shouting, “Racists! Racists!” while filming the incident with their phones.

A man and a woman were also followed and harassed as they walked back to their hotel. One protester repeatedly asked them:
“How do you feel about the killing of black individuals in the United States?”

The Blaze reported that after the RNC hundreds of protesters assembled outside the White House to advocate for the goals and aims of the Black Lives Matter movement. One protester said:
“We are here to liberate black lives because historically, they have been shut down!”
Videos show police officers protecting those who were being harassed as they left the RNC. According to reports from the RNC, Trump made the funding of the police and stamping out rioting by protesters a cornerstone of his convention speech.

Trump argued that re-election of his administration would mean less rioting in contrast to that of his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.

Here is another article from Law Enforcement Today about anti-Trump protests:
If you listen to certain networks, such as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC, you will never hear about any violence directed at conservatives by liberals.
Last week, a left-wing nut drove through a Republican voter registration tent in Jacksonville, Florida.
The incident received no publicity on two of the major three networks “news” divisions, while a third dedicated less than one minute to the story. Media bias? Nooooo. Not if you listen to nitwits like Brian Stelter of CNN.
Recently, the University of California at Santa Cruz was the scene where “tolerant” liberals smashed an information table belonging to College Republicans.
A video posted on social media shows two “protesters” tearing up placards and ripping downs signs. One of them appears to spit on a 13-star “Betsy Ross” American flag lying on the ground.
Laughing as someone tries to grab an American flag away from him, one thug says:
“I think this guy’s trying to assault me!”
During the struggle, the man trying to retrieve the flag falls to the ground during the struggle. Somebody says:
“Get a life!”
The video starts when the incident is already in progress, so it is uncertain exactly how the incident began. However, Dylan Temple, president of the UC Santa Cruz chapter of the College Republicans told The Post Millennial that it began when one of the liberal thugs grabbed one of the group’s flags.
Temple said that the matter was reported immediately to campus police. Subsequent posts on social media identified one of the thugs, however, it is unclear if that individual was charged with any crimes.
The attack by the snowflakes at UC Santa Cruz shows an unbelievable amount of ignorance. While morons such as Colin Kaepernick try to claim the “Betsy Ross” flag has white supremacist ties, they could be no more wrong.
Betsy Ross created the flag as a banner for the 13 colonies during the American Revolution. She did this as a form of support for the Continental Army that was standing against oppression by Great Britain. White supremacy had NOTHING to do with it.
The main problem child in the altercation at the university was someone named Martina/Artemis Martin, a self-described “queer activist.” In a video since gone viral, Martin says:
“This is a flag of white supremacy.”
The video then shows a struggle over the flag, with chairs and items being knocked over before the College Republican is knocked to the ground. Martin then tears down the booth’s banner, and spits on the Betsy Ross flag before fleeing with an accomplice, who had torn up a sign.
Leftist attacks College Republicans tabling for free speech @ucsc!
SPITS on American flag and calls it a symbol of “white supremacy”!
UC Santa Cruz still silent about this incident of political violence. Updates as story develops. pic.twitter.com/0sELEnKOQe

Last Wednesday, Martin went to social media to claim credit for the vandalism. Martin’s social media history shows that Martin is a long-time proponent of radical left-wing views, including attending anti-Trump protests.
The Santa Cruz incident is just the latest in a wave of violence by extremists against Republicans and supporters of President Trump. Apparently, the sore losers still cannot get over the fact that Trump won and Clinton lost.
Akin to the aforementioned incident in Jacksonville, a retired police officer wearing a birthday hat that resembled MAGA-style attire was punched by an unidentified woman in a Tennessee bar.
And in New Hampshire, a tough guy decided to assault a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults near a polling site during the primary election in that state. Fortunately, the dirtbag, desperately in need of a haircut and a shave, was arrested.
Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, New Hampshire was arrested and charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct. Pretty minor charges for assaulting a 15-year-old and breaking someone’s jaw if you ask us.
The victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and was volunteering at a Trump tent at Windham High School, which was a polling location for the primary.
As Bradley exited the voting location and was walking by the tent, he slapped the 15-year-old boy across the face, then assaulted two adults who interceded on the youth’s behalf.
Cathy Campbell, the boy’s mother, told Fox News the following:
“My son stayed home from school on Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment and we drove by the high school to go vote. When we got there, we saw Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, and my son was over the moon,” she said. “My son is the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life.”
Later that day, her son was asked if he wanted to volunteer at the polling location and hold Trump signs outside the school. His mother told Fox news:
“I was apprehensive about him wearing the MAGA hat, because we know it can provoke and we know people don’t like Trump. But he wore the hat because he’s a proud 15-year-old and he doesn’t know what people are going to be like.
“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk, and he said, ‘Have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered. He said ‘f*** you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.”
Another man wearing a MAGA hat came to intervene on her son’s behalf, and he too was assaulted. He now has a fractured jaw.
Campbell said her son is “pretty traumatized.” She said:
“There will always be the people who try to blame the victim. But he certainly did nothing wrong. It’s scary that you can’t express without which political party you are. People need to know how much intolerance there is right now.
“It sickens me that people would be angry at a kid for wearing a stupid hat. And everybody that has reached out has just talked about what an amazing kid he is.”
Corey Lewandowski, former 2016 Trump campaign manager and current senior adviser to the 2020 campaign, said that he had attended the same polling place earlier in the day. He told Fox News:
“My 8-year-old was holding a sign an hour before that. It’s appalling and disgusting that someone is attacked physically for supporting the president of the United States, let alone a child.”
The Windham Police Department said that Bradley was transported to the Rockingham County Jail and is being held on a $5,000 cash bail. He is also on administrative hold for a probation violation. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
Donald Trump Jr. called out the mainstream media for not calling out left-wing violence on Twitter.
So a leftist attacks 3 Trump supporters, including a 15 year old child, in NH this week.
Last week a deranged leftist attempted to run over a group of Trump supporters with a car in FL.
What will it take for the MSM to finally call out leftwing violence? https://t.co/auabw5TKIW
