WATCH: Violence Breaks Out At ‘Stop The Steal’ Rally At CA Capital After BLM Shows Up

I covered the massive “Stop the Steal” rally in Sacramento over the weekend. It was a peaceful rally made up of what appeared to be thousands of Trump supporters in front of the capitol building. Various speakers proclaimed to the crowd the need to count “legal” votes only in order to preserve a free & fair election system.

Hundreds of police & California Highway Patrol officers were on hand. They weren’t needed during the rally. It was only after it ended when BLM, Biden supporters, and other leftists showed up that law enforcement had to take measures to separate the two sides. Several members of the Proud Boys were also on hand to provide security for the rally-goers.

You can get an idea of how big the crowd was in the video below. I walked through the crowd of patriotic Trump supporters who were waving flags & banners as they listened to leaders of the rally speak.


I followed a line of CHP officers who walked from the capitol grounds through the crowd of Trump supporters. As the officers snaked through the crowd, cheers erupted as rally-goers thanked them for their service.

In-between speakers, music was played & people spontaneously broke out in dance. One little girl stole the show with her moves and had the crowd cheering.

The problems began as more & more leftists & Biden supporters began showing up after the rally had ended. There were many who held BLM signs.

As I stood filming on a street in front of the capitol, a young man who was standing with the Trump supporters grabbed one of their bullhorns and smashed it on the ground. Across the street, you could hear the leftists cheer. Several men from the Trump side chased after the man & one announced he was making a citizen’s arrest. After many tense moments, a phalanx of police officers showed up and separated those who were protecting the person who broke the bullhorn and the Trump supporters.

As the afternoon wore on, more from the left showed up and began confronting Trump’s supporters. In the video below you can see a brawl break out and someone in a BLM van deployed pepper spray on the patriots.

Police quickly moved in after that and separated the two sides. There were more heated confrontations after that, but not any physical violence that I could see.

Here are some photos from the rally and after when things got heated.
