Masked Agitators Attack President’s Supporters, Whine When MAGA Strikes Back

Pepper spray seems to be the weapon of choice for the anti-Trump left in California since the election.
Anti-Trump agitators pepper-sprayed Trump supporters attending a Milo Yiannopoulos event in Berkeley last month, and a “Make America Great Again” march in Huntington Beach turned violent in similar fashion on Saturday, leading to four arrests.
After about a dozen agitators wearing black masks formed a wall blocking the marchers as they made their way down to Bolsa Chica State Beach, the situation got ugly with a lot of yelling back and forth and at least one person – a female march organizer – getting pepper-sprayed.
Via the L.A. Times:
[quote]A group of flag-waving Trump supporters tackled the man with the pepper spray, who was wearing a black mask, and started punching and kicking him, according to witnesses. Several other fights also broke out between demonstrators.
The crowd chased the masked man, who jumped over a fence and started running along Pacific Coast Highway, where he was detained by California Highway Patrol officers.
Four people – all agitators – were arrested following the brawl that lasted about a half-hour. Three were arrested for alleged illegal use of pepper spray and a fourth person was arrested for alleged assault and battery, Capt. Pearsall said.[/quote]
The “messy” - Trump supporters being forced to defend themselves - is starting. Sounds like they were professional, and the CHP (eventually?) did their duty. I can’t help thinking that if Berserkeley and several other PDs had handled the Trump-haters better, things would not have come to this pass.
