Antifa Thugs Attack Conservative Free Speech Protesters in San Francisco

'they are the reason why he's voting for President Donald Trump...'

(Headline USA) Several hundred Antifa thugs attacked protesters at a free speech demonstration staged by conservative in downtown San Francisco on Saturday, outnumbering and attacking those gathered, including knocking one in the mouth.

A photographer working for The Associated Press witnessed a free-speech supporter with Team Save America taken away in an ambulance and an injured San Francisco police officer on the ground by San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza.

Team Save America organized the rally to protest Twitter, which it said squelches conservative speech.

Members of the group wore red “Make America Great Again” Trump campaign hats and carried pro-police “Thin Blue Line” flags and U.S. flags.

Philip Anderson, the organizer of the event, posted photos to social media of his bloody mouth with a front tooth missing and another hanging loosely. He said Antifa protesters attacked him “for no reason.”

Anderson took the stage at about 1 p.m. and was greeted by chants and plastic water bottles and glass bottles thrown over police barricades.

The event was canceled, although both sides lingered in the area into the afternoon.

Messages left with the San Francisco Police Department were not immediately returned Saturday.

Anderson called Antifa attackers hypocrites and said they are the reason why he’s voting for President Donald Trump.

“I love America, I love this country and I love free speech,” he said.
