MORE VIOLENCE: Trump Supporters Giving ‘Free Hugs’ Milkshaked, Egged 3 Times
Independent video journalists Saleem Juma and Dion J. Thompson had milkshakes and eggs hurled at them in Seattle as they attempted to offer “free hugs” from supporters of President Donald Trump for the purpose of creating a YouTube video.
While recording and live streaming, Juma and Thompson had milkshakes and eggs hurled at them repeatedly in Seattle, Washington. Speaking to Big League Politics, they say that police were notified, and they did not even bother responding to the call.
As the duo filmed, with their security, outside a shopping center in Seattle, numerous individuals made their way to the roof of the establishment and began hurling milkshakes and eggs. In another incident caught on the video, the group’s security guard can be seen being punched in the face by a passerby.
“Apparently wearing a Trump hat in Seattle is grounds for assaulting you,” said Juma. “With eggs and fists and a milkshake.”
The group kept filming, despite being covered in egg and milkshake, and got several minutes of footage. As they continued recording, live streaming the individuals who egged and threw milkshakes at them, another individual walked by and threw what appeared to be yet another milkshake at the group.
By the end of the video, the group had suffered three separate incidents of violence, and did not appear to let it deter them.
When speaking to Big League Politics, the duo explained their motivation for filming the event, “Someone has to expose the tolerant left.”
While the violence was far less severe, the incident was eerily reminiscent of what happened to journalist Andy Ngo when filming in Portland only weeks ago. Famously, Ngo was assaulted with milkshakes that may have had concrete in them, and wound up hospitalized with a brain bleed for several days.
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor the increasing violence of the left as we approach the 2020 elections.
