Did I say white supremacists? I meant black people. And the guy they attacked was white. So what did this crazed neo-Nazi skinhead do to provoke the ire of all these upstanding black citizens? He was recording their protest.
A group of far-right protesters who planned to demonstrate outside Rep. Maxine Waters’ district office in South Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon failed to show up, but dozens of counterprotesters did.
The Oath Keepers, a far-right anti-government group that purports to have many veterans as members, had said they would protest outside the Los Angeles Democrat’s office on Thursday afternoon.
So Mad Maxine asks the good citizens of her district to come and protect her from these racist terrorists. When the KKK found out that there might be trouble the decided that it wouldn’t be prudent to show up. Some of Mad Maxine’s constituents did show up.
A number of protesters remained near the intersection of 102nd Street and Broadway long after police announced the Oath Keepers were no-shows. For much of this time, the mood remained festive, although it was punctuated with moments of tension.
At one point, counterprotesters pulled a small American flag off of a pickup, doused it in lighter fluid and set it ablaze. The crowd then began chanting, cursing the government and saying, “America was never great.”
When these non-violent counterdemonstrators realized that there was a neo-Nazi skinhead KKK member in their midst they tried to engage him in conversation, but this fascist freaked out and started running. A few people followed him, concerned for his safety, calling out, “Wait! Come back! We just want to talk!” But this far-right Milo-wannabe jumped in a car and rode off, leaving his black cameraman behind.
It’s all on video. The white guy clearly started everything.
(Don’t expect to see this on the nightly news.)
