On Saturday, the Million Maga March took place in Washington, D.C. Seas of people emerged for the event. Trump flags and hats were everywhere in the crowd. While the videos we saw during the day showed bright smiles and an even brighter sense of patriotism, things took a turn for the worse when the sun set Saturday.
ANTIFA (just an idea, of course) showed up and wreaked havoc on these patriots. Some supporters were hit in the back of the head, had Trump hats stolen, or were shoved to the ground and punched or kicked.
In a rare call-out, Ivanka Trump made her dismay known.
“The media’s near-total silence about the physical attacks being perpetrated against conservatives is shameful and dangerous. Just imagine the outrage and indignation if this went the other way. Violence is never the answer and instigators must be condemned and persecuted.”
Don Jr, Ivanka’s brother, didn’t mince words about the situation either.
“The media’s silence on the violence against Trump supporters is deafening. After four years of calling them Nazis, at this point they might as well dox them all or add the(m) to AOC’s list for the Gulags. They are complicit in the violence. They are the worst of the worst.”
What does this tell you about the state of America? Where is Mr. Unity Joe Biden? He can tweet about the SpaceX launch and congratulate those working on the vaccine. But after claiming he will be a President for ‘All Americans’ this silence seems just like patting the devil on the back. The American people aren’t stupid. We see where this is going.
