Trump supporters in Berkeley, California, held a march as a show of support for President Trump. By all accounts, the March4Trump people were sane and non violent. Then towards the end of the rally the Nazi fascists went after the Trump supporters with dangerous weapons with 10 being arrested.
That number would have been much higher if the Berkeley Police Dept would hire non-pussy police. While the Nazi fascists assaulted Americans who actually work for a living, the police stood down just as they did during the Milo riots on the Berkeley campus.
As the Marin Independent Journal reported:
“A total of 10 people were arrested, including five for battery, four for assault with a deadly weapon and one for resisting arrest. Police reported items confiscated among the combatants were: ‘metal pipes, bats, 2x4s and pieces of wood. A group with bricks was detained, and their bricks confiscated.’”
In addition, pepper spray was used liberally. (Pun intended)
“Some anti-Trump protesters threw things at Trump supporters. Berkeley police made occasional forays into the crowd, but mostly held back,” they continued. “Protesters spilled out into Martin Luther King Junior Way and were fighting in the middle of the street, and there were people punching each other on the sidewalks. Some people had bloody faces. One pro-Trump supporter was apparently sprayed in the face with Mace.”
Several attendees complained about the lack of intervention by police officers, a complaint that was also common during the anti-Milo Berkeley riot last month.
An elderly attendee wearing a MAGA hat was also pepper-sprayed, causing him to collapse on the floor.

Despite the large amount of violence, numerous reports indicate that police officers refused to intervene, and only one suspect was arrested.
UFC veteran and professional MMA fighter Jake Shields was even forced to rescue a man who was being assaulted by left-wing rioters after police allegedly refused to help.
“Like fifteen people were trying to attack him and others were cheering them on,” explained Shields, who managed to successfully rescue the man, in an interview with Breitbart News. “No one helped, no one had the balls to step in, so my reaction was to run in and start picking people off.”
“More chaos started happening, so I went up to the police and tried bringing them back, but they were just like ‘we’re not really going over there. You should just stay away.’” he continued. “I don’t know if they were taking orders from someone or if they were just being lazy. I don’t know what the situation was, but it was pathetic to watch. Our police, who are supposed to defend the citizens of Berkeley. It’s a sad scene that they would allow that.”
