On Saturday, November 15 [sic], 2018, at approximately 3:20 pm, the complainants, who are United States Military Reservists, were on the 100 block of S. Front Street, when they were approached by numerous males and females.
The group of suspects called the complainants “Nazis”, and “White Supremacists”. The suspects then maced the complainants, and then proceeded to punch and kick them. During the assault, one of the complainant’s had his cell phone stolen from him by one of the male suspects. The offenders then fled northbound on Front Street, towards Market. Some of the individuals involved were captured on video at an earlier protest in the area.
Police are asking the public’s help in identifying the three suspects.
Even Philadelphia has rallies that the left is always calling “nazi, white supremacist, kkk” and the like. Sounds like Portland, OReon, actually. It’s the best way of marginalizing ordinary people by calling them names, driving the narrative so that the media picks it up. And the media dutifully paints everyone at the rally as “ultra conservative” or “alt-right” just to make sure people think the worst.
Media said that the “We the People” rally had few attendees, and were outnumbered by Antifa. And that’s part of the picture painted by the media: just a handful of miserable right-wingers with the rest of the world against them.
The rally’s Facebook event page stated:
We the people have been silenced for too long. It is far beyond time to make a stand and let our voices be heard. Too many times our voices are drowned out by the voices on the left. We need to be louder, we need to be stronger. We will let them know that their violent tactics will not keep us down or scare us away! The Silent Majority must make a stand now!!! This is our time!! This is our day.
This event is for all Patriots, Militia, 3%, constitution loving Americans, pro good cop, pro ICE, pro law and order, pro life, pro American value, pro gun and anti illegal immigration…. Will you stand with us? ITS TIME TO SHOW PHILLY WHAT PATRIOTISM REALLY IS!!
