Antifa attacks people in streets, ‘throws urine,’ causes violence, chaos
President Trump’s Minnesota rally became an epicenter of chaos and violence after anti-Trump protesters/Antifa began to burn MAGA gear, spray their own urine, and accost the police force.
Trump’s appearance in Minneapolis came just days after he and the city’s mayor, Jacob Frey, exchanged social media jabs regarding the cost of security.
Antifa members were fast and furious on the scene, causing an immediate presence of chaos. As the night carried on, protesters got more and more chaotic with their behavior. Outside the Target Center, Make America Great Again hats were set in flames. Police, who attempted to quell the intensity of the growing anarchy, were called “pigs” by Antifa members and protesters.

Scary scenes unfolded throughout the night, including Antifa members singling out Trump voters and telling them to “get off our streets.”

Here is Antifa attacking a man in the streets…
As in Portland, San Jose, etc, what happened in Minneapolis last night shows how far-left rioters seek out & chase down outnumbered Trump supporters trying to leave.

But the worst (pending you can rank horrific behavior in any fashion) may have been the Antifa’s urine bombing. In other words, they tossed their own urine on the police, who returned a pepper spray.
If you think that Minnesota politicians intervened, you’re wrong. Rep. Aisha Gomez (DFL) of the Minnesota House of Representatives was caught on camera assisting Antifa in their protests.
President Trump made waves in national media when he announced he’d be cracking down on Somali’s illegally living in Minneapolis. Minneapolis is home to the largest Somali community in the nation.

Thursday night’s horrific scenes are another example of why you should always take precautions and be prepared for uprisings. Even beyond Trump, people with an affinity for chaos and violence, particularly in urban regions, are a tinderbox. Stay away from any events in major cities where known political protests are likely to occur. Always consider escape plans before they are needed. But most of all, avoid, avoid, avoid…
You don’t want to engage the mob, no matter how frustrated you may feel over their demonstrations.
