What does it say about America and traditional American values when peaceful supporters of a political party are attacked while trying to eat at a restaurant?
As recounted by the New York Post, “Trump supporters were bombarded with fireworks while dining at a Washington DC restaurant following Saturday’s “MAGA Million March” in the nation’s capital — one of several outbreaks of violence at the demonstration, according to reports.
“Footage from the encounters shows a small group of Trump supporters sitting outside an eatery near the White House when a large crowd surrounds the patio and exchanges words with three diners, a video posted on Twitter by NBC reporter Shomari Stone shows.
“Other diners begin to leave as counter-protesters can be seen hurling debris — and then fireworks — into the patio, lighting it up with sparks and forcing the last three Trump supporters to walk away…
“Elsewhere in the city, anti-Trump protesters also threw liquid and other items as the pro-Trump rally broke up, while others snatched Trump flags and hats as the demonstration wound down, Insider said in a report.”
Watch the video and share your thoughts in the Comment Section on this page. Is this sort of attack acceptable in America?
