WATCH: Trump Supporters Attacked By Leftist Mob At Free Speech Rally In SF

A leftist mob attacked Trump supporters who held a rally against big tech censorship in San Francisco yesterday. The demonstrators were slated to protest in front of Twitter’s headquarters but they never made it. Police had to drive them from the area at high speeds because of the escalating violence.

“A rally called to promote free speech and denounce big tech censorship turned ugly Saturday in San Francisco, when hundreds of alleged Antifa counterprotesters showed up and berated and attacked demonstrators, leaving one missing a tooth.

The conservative group Team Save America organized the event to protest Twitter, which it argues censors free speech. They planned to rally at United Nations Plaza before moving the protest to Twitter’s headquarters a few blocks away. But the event quickly devolved into a shouting match and violence as hundreds of counterprotesters stormed the scene.

Video shows one counterprotester punching Philip Anderson, an organizer of the event, knocking one of his teeth out.

Anderson posted a picture of the aftermath on social media and said he was attacked by Antifa.

“This is what happens when you lose free speech,” Anderson said over boos as the crowd threw objects at him. “This is what happens, America. This is what our country is turning into.”

The event was canceled before it ever really got started.

Anderson stated on Twitter:

“Antifa attacked 2 senior citizens that were trying to enter our rally. After knocking one of the elders to the ground, Antifa continued attacking everyone who tried to enter my free speech rally. They still can’t explain why they committed countless hate crimes. Real NAZIS”

Another view of the attack on Anderson. He and another demonstrator were forced to jump over a police barricade to get to safety.

Another demonstrator who was there posted a video of the pro-Trump demonstrators being driven away by police at high speed.

“Antifa violently attacked us and the police today. Throwing eggs water bottles glass bottles rocks and soda cans. Police had to escort us to the parking garage. Antifa is a Communist Terrorist group trying to overthrow the USA.”

Anderson commented on the video:

“Antifa tried to kill us all. The Police saved our lives!!! BACK THE BLUE!!!”

Another protester who was wearing a Trump 2020 shirt was attacked at some point by a counterprotester.

The San Francisco Police Department did not respond to a request for comment Saturday.

Social media companies have come under fire for alleged censorship recently. Last week, for instance, Twitter put a warning on a tweet from the President that compared coronavirus to the flu, while Facebook removed the post altogether.

As of Saturday evening, Twitter had still locked out the New York Post’s account for tweeting about their reporting on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Facebook, meanwhile, said it is reducing distribution of the Post’s reporting on its platform.”
