Anti-Trump protesters claiming to be “anti-fascist” have ironically attacked a pro-free speech rally being held in Berkeley, California.
Early into the event, there were reports of knives being thrown, pepper spray deployed, and antifa throwing M80s into the crowd of free speech activists.

The event, called “Patriots Day,” was set to feature outspoken pro-Donald Trump speakers including Lauren Southern, Kyle Chapman *better known as “Based Stick Man,” who defended Trump supporters against left-wing agitators at a previous rally), Vaughn Neville, Irma Hinojosa, Tim Treadstone (also known as Baked Alaska, songwriter behind the campaign season’s “MAGA Anthem”) and Brittany Pettibone.
Rich Black of the Liberty Revival Alliance raised nearly $8,000 to hold the rally through crowdfunding website WeSearchr. He was also one of the organizers of a March 4 rally, where Chapman was arrested for defending fellow Trump supporters from the masked black bloc.
“This event will happen. We cannot allow ourselves to be bullied and our freedoms to be taken from us. Bring heart, support the Patriots who made their stand on March 4th, again on April 15th,” the crowdfunding bounty description read.
As Chapman went to give his speech, he was pepper sprayed by one of the anarchists.
There were also multiple reports of injuries.

As the free speech activists faced down the violent mob of antifa, they reportedly began chanting, “trust fund commies get off our streets.”

Soon after the rally was announced, antifa vowed to shut it down — urging followers and fellow anti-free speech advocates to bring masks.

“Masking up or otherwise concealing your identity helps protect you from the alt-right and the state. There is a risk of the alt-right doxxing individuals for the purposes of online harassment campaigns which can lead to offline consequences,” the Facebook event urged. “You also want to assure the state does not identify you so they cannot target you for repression later on. Consider bringing an extra mask in case someone else might need one!”
Citing previous violence from antifa towards Trump supporters at rallies in Berkeley, many planned to attend the event with weapons.
Both antifa and the Patriot’s Day crowds began to pour in an hour and a half before the protest began. The police had attempted to place a barrior between the two groups, but it did not last long.

The day before the event, Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change asserted that he was in Home Depot to get a gas mask and saw multiple “antifa-types” purchasing wooden sticks.
In Berkeley now for tomorrow's riot, was at home depot yesterday getting a gas mask and saw anti-fa types buy a lot of wooden polls.

The radical leftists had also placed signs around town, libeling comedian and political commentator Gavin McInnes, though he told Big League Politics that he was not scheduled to attend the event at any point. His group, The Proud Boys, was planning to attend to help protect Trump supporters.
“They’re attacking little old ladies with American flags, the flag of the country that they are in!” McInnes told Big League Politics. “The left has made the American flag the new swastika.”
Speaking to Big League Politics on the eve of the event, Hinojosa, an advisor for Latinos for Trump, said that she was not nervous at all, but excited.
“I’m not nervous, I’m excited to speak up on the importance of freedom of speech especially now that we have different groups like Antifa trying to shut us down,” Hinojosa said. “I’m concerned for the safety of those in attendance but we have to be willing to speak up against anyone trying to take away our first amendment right. I’m ready to stand up.”
Hinojosa’s sentiment was echoed by Southern, who stated that instead of getting nervous, she gets prepared.
“I try not to get nervous, instead I get prepared. It’s a shame I have to have so much security ready simply to speak my mind in public – but getting punched or pepper sprayed is a small price to pay compared to those who gave their lives for my right to speak,” Southern told Big League Politics.
Pettibone, co-host of the Virtue of the West podcast, told Big League that she was so nervous that she almost refused to speak at the event. She ultimately decided it was important to overcome her fears to speak out for something she believes in.
“I’m definitely nervous. In fact, when I was initially asked to speak at the event, I declined out of a concern of threats of physical violence from Antifa,” Pettibone told BLP. “But I changed my mind because I decided that, in the grand scheme of things, the freedom for a society to speak what it believes is infinitely more important than my personal fears.”
Last month, Trump supporters held a “March 4 Trump” in Berkeley, and a large amount of protesters in black bloc attire arrived. The day ended with violence, including the assault and pepper spraying of an elderly man.

The protest was organized by militant leftist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), who had previously claimed involvement in another riot in the city in February — boasting that they were one of the “organizers of Berkeley’s shutdown of white neo-fascist Milo Yiannopoulos.”
Prior to Yiannopoulous’ scheduled speech at University of California Berkeley, protesters lead by BAMN had thrown a firebomb, violently attacked attendees, and looted several nearby businesses.
The group, clad in ski masks and all-black attire from head to toe, launched fireworks and molotov cocktails at law enforcement, caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the school’s Student Union, and set the generator of a mobile light structure ablaze. The city estimated that the riot left between $400,000 and $500,000 in damage to the area.
BAMN was identified by the FBI in 2005 as thought to be involved in terrorist activities, in a document called the Domestic Terrorism Symposium, which was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the American Civil Liberties Union.
Black bloc is a common tactic used by anarchists to make it more difficult to identify violent protesters and rioters for prosecution or civil claims. The goal is to make one person nearly indistinguishable from the next so that they can disappear in the crowd. The tactic has been used throughout the world for decades, but its first documented use in the US was at a protest against the support of “right-wing death squads” in El Salvador outside the Pentagon in 1988.
Since then, the tactic has become common at protests organized by the far left, which often lead to riots.
It is important to note that the definition of terrorism is “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”
‘Protest by the Tens of Millions’: Left-Wing Coalition Demands Chaos in the Streets to Force Trump’s Ouster Following Election
A left-wing organizational front, Rise and Resist, is part of a coalition setting up mass rallies to agitate for the removal of President Donald Trump from office, regardless of the vote.
They make it clear with their rhetoric that they will not accept a win by President Trump under any circumstances. They intend to wage a campaign of terror in order to oust Trump by any means necessary.
Their big post-election event is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 4pm. They noted that this is just “a tentative date & time” and give no location for the event, as they hope to conceal their actions from the public. They wrote on their official event page that “we are facing an unprecedented threat to the future of our democracy, and we also need to start preparing now for sustained nonviolent actions in the streets that grow over time.”
Terror groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have shown the world what the Left means when they refer to “nonviolent actions.” Rise and Resist is attempting to maintain plausible deniability as they set up their riots.
“If Trump tries to steal the election, we need to protest by the tens of millions. And we need to keep protesting until Trump concedes and leaves The White House. A contested election won’t be a legal fight. It will be a struggle of political will,” the front wrote.

Rise and Resist frequently links to Protect the Results, an organization that provides a tool kit for activists to cause mayhem following next week’s election. The organization references the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), a Soros-backed group staffed with Democrat and Never Trump operatives designed to set the stage for a color revolution coup against the president. Protect the Results seems to be the organizing arm of the coup, with TIP serving as the lawfare arm.
Protect the Results is in a coalition with tons of left-wing organizations, some with direct ties to the Democrat Party. They include Black Lives Matter, Indivisible, Bend the Arc Jewish Action, Democracy 21, Greenpeace, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, The Jewish Vote, and the Women’s March. Rise and Resist is listed among the coalition partners and serves as their boots on the ground in New York City.
Rise and Resist has posted images and video from previous rallies, which can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported extensively on the infrastructure that is being put in place to rob President Trump of a second term in office:
The so-called Election Integrity Partnership is producing propaganda to protect the color revolution coup that the globalists are perpetrating against President Donald Trump in an attempt to remove him from office regardless of next month’s election.
The group published some gibberish attempting to obfuscate the truth of the establishment’s color revolution attempt with a word salad of academic drivel. They blamed talk of a color revolution on foreign powers and implied that right-wing journalists like Darren Beattie, Michelle Malkin and Jack Posobiec are working with the Russians.
“After this “mainstreaming” portion led by prominent partisan influencers, social media users who found the story appealing moved the narrative into Facebook groups and pages through shares,” the Election Integrity Partnership wrote.
They are appropriating Orwellian neologisms popularized during the COVID-19 mass hysteria, such as “superspreader,” to demonize their political opposition and set the stage for their censorship on major social media platforms.
“Some displayed “super spreader” behavior, in which an extremely active user shares content into dozens of different Groups nearly simultaneously. In this specific case, users shared links either directly related to blog or news coverage of the color revolution claims themselves, or used the phrase “color revolution” in their commentary while sharing links to stories of other incidents they seemed to believe were evidence of the claim,” they wrote…
The Election Integrity Partnership describes their organization as a “coalition of research entities focused on supporting real-time information exchange between the research community, election officials, government agencies, civil society organizations, and social media platforms.” They use nonpartisan and independent phrasing to hide their deep left-wing connections to progressive oligarch George Soros.
On their official website, the Election Integrity Partnership notes that support from the James L. Knight Foundation was influential in the launch of the organization. The Knight Foundation worked with Soros’ largest front, the Open Society Foundations, to support a project that served as the forerunner for the Black Lives Matter terror movement. They also collaborated to train left-wing activists in South America and the Caribbean to subvert and undermine their national governments.
Additionally, the Knight Foundation has an incestuous relationship with ProPublica, a corporate-funded propaganda mill that reguarly doxes right-wing activists and journalists with half-truths and smears. Knight President and CEO Alberto Ibargüen serves on the board of ProPublica while ProPublica president Paul Steiger is a trustee of the Knight Foundation, according to the Media Research Center. ProPublica has been funded with large donations from the Open Society Foundations since at least 2010.
These findings indicate that the Election Integrity Partnership is just another deceptively-named organization that is attempting disenfranchise the American voter in a desperate attempt to stack the deck against President Trump.
The Trump campaign is encouraging activists to go to DefendYourBallot.com to insert themselves in the process and become a poll challenger in order to stop this steal.
