As part of a march to protest the “Unite the Right” rally that had taken place two days earlier in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Monday a large crowd of leftist thugs affiliated with the domestic terror group antifa — the so-called “anti-fascists” — descended on the Hennepin County jail in Minnesota.
Why did they choose to protest outside a facility that justifiably houses criminals? Who knows. But it’s what they did when they arrived that ought to concern every American.
They pulled down the Hennepin County flag that had been flying outside the jail and burned it — after which they replaced it with an “antifa” flag, according to CNS News.
Watch the disgusting Antifa flag being hoisted up in the video below:
The deplorable behavior “lasted for under 30 minutes at which time [county officials] replaced the flag with a new one,” a county spokesperson later told CNS, adding that the original flag had been “partially burned” and “was no longer usable.”
But that’s not all the leftist thugs did. As reported by the Star Tribune, the antifa thugs also “blocked the light-rail tracks, forcing a train to reverse back to the Government Center station,” and burned an “effigy in khaki pants and a white shirt” outside the jail. And they did this all while local authorities “looked on but took no action.”
Monday’s rally was conducted in response to the “Unite the Right” rally Saturday in Charlottesville, where white supremacists duked it out with violent leftist thugs, and where one white supremacist plowed a car into a crowd of protesters, killing a young woman. The irony is rich given that the violent leftist thugs who attended the “Unite the Right” rally were also affiliated with antifa.
Moreover, according to Axios, a new poll shows that a 64 percent majority of Republicans and a 40 percent of all adults believe that the leftist thugs who participated in that rally were just as responsible for the violence that ultimately erupted that tragic day as the white supremacists.
So instead of blocking light-rails, burning effigies and destroying government property, perhaps the leftist thugs affiliated with antifa should protest themselves, because it’s clear as day that their ignorant and oftentimes violent antics are not only getting people hurt, but making America far less safe place for everybody else.
