Radical left protestors gathered in Manhattan on Saturday in an anti-Trump protest to march against “racism and fascism.” The event, arranged by the United Against Racism and Fascism NYC, soon went downhill.
 
Though the protests started peacefully — the crowd chanting “Black Lives Matter” — the mob eventually berated the cops. According to Blaze, agitators chanted, “How do you spell Nazi? N-Y-P-D!” Others cried, “The only good cop is a dead cop!”
 
“I hope all of your children get raped and killed,” a classy young lady with pink hair yelled to the men and women in blue.
 
At times, the protestors got physical, resulting in 11 arrests.  
 
The drama didn’t stop there. The New York City Antifa Twitter account tweeted details of a MAGA caravan scheduled to travel through the city. Protestors (remember they were claiming to be fighting fascism?) mobilized to disrupt the caravan and silence other American voices. 
 
Now, who are the fascists again?
 
Shortly afterwards, the radical leftists celebrated, claiming they forced the Trump supporters to change route. Meanwhile, a Trump caravan of reportedly 2,000 vehicles blocked all traffic on the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge. MAGA flags waved as far as the eye could see while the supporters of the POTUS chanted, “USA!” 
 
I’m not a huge fan of blocking bridges, but I’d take USA chants over wishing rape and death on the children of men and women who have sworn an oath to protect and serve the same people who detest them.
 
Look, if you’re going to exercise your right to free speech by insulting the police, go for it. But call a spade a spade. Don’t claim wishing for murder on children is doing anything to stop racism.
