Officers attacked, supporters of President Trump stabbed at violent rallies in Washington D.C.

WASHINGTON, DC- As has become routine, a pro-Trump rally during the daytime devolved into chaos under darkness as groups of pro-Trump supporters, including members of the Proud Boys clashed with Antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchists who went to the nation’s capital with the intention of creating chaos.

At least one officer was reportedly injured, which video captured the female officer limping away from the area where counter demonstrators – a.k.a, Antifa-inspired individuals – were positioned. 

ABC7 News captioned the footage with the following: 

“[DC Police] assisted an injured female officer as she limped her way outside of the counter-protest zone as civil unrest broke out in DC Saturday following a day of pro-[Trump] rallies. The officer appeared to have tears in her eyes.”

Breitbart and numerous other outlets reported on the mayhem that ensued after a day of peaceful rallies in support of the president devolved into chaos under the cover of darkness.

Breitbart reported that at least four supporters of the president were stabbed during altercations in Washington, DC.

Numerous tweets showed the violence that took place on Saturday night.

People who had been surrounding that man can be heard yelling out, “Knife, knife, knife!”

WJLA said they were told by first responders they had transported four critical stabbing victims from the area of 11th and F Street NW to DC area hospitals.

Police then moved in to arrest the stabbing suspect:

Apparently earlier, Antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchists attempted to blind a man with a high-powered laser, then knock his iPad out of his hand:

Another tweet shows members of The Proud Boys fending off an Antifa anarchist with a knife:

Here is yet another tweet with video showing one of the stabbings from a different angle:

Yet another video, this time showing a stabbing victim being tended to by DC Metro Police:

The clashes between Proud Boys and Antifa/Black Lives Matter spread to other areas of the city as well, as shown in the below tweet:

NBC News, citing Doug Buchanan, a spokesman for the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, seemed to confirm that the four stabbing victims had sustained critical injuries.

Witnesses told WJLA’s reporter that the stabbings occurred during a clash between supporters of President Trump and anarchists, likely affiliated with Antifa. A restaurant in that area, Harry’s had served as a gathering spot of sorts for Trump supporters on Saturday.

DC Metro Police reported at least 23 arrests, including six for assaults on police officers, 10 for simple assaults, and four for “riotous acts,” possession of a Taser and crossing police lines, The Hill reported.  

Police said earlier in the night, groups affiliated with Proud Boys and Black Lives Matter were broken up by police at around 7 p.m.

The rally in the nation’s capital was held once again in support of President Trump amidst what has been termed a fraudulent election where numerous states reported questionable results.

On Friday, the United States Supreme Court dismissed a case brought by Texas and numerous other states challenging the results of the election, with the high court apparently disregarding Article II of the Constitution.

At the rally, speakers railed against various entities, including that [kangaroo] court, and also Fox News and Joe Biden.

The event organizers had demonstrations planned in front of the Supreme Court, the US Capitol building, as well as the Department of Justice. Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was railroaded by the Obama administration and forced to resign, was one of the speakers at the event. 

Flynn recently received a presidential pardon from President Trump after the judge in Flynn’s case refused to dismiss the charges despite a request from the Justice Department that he do so. 

President Trump, on his way to the annual Army-Navy football game overflew the rally in Marine One, the presidential helicopter. 

“Wow! Thousands of people forming in Washington (D.C.) for Stop the Steal. Didn’t know about this, but I’ll be seeing them. #MAGA,” Trump tweeted in acknowledgment of the event. 

In probably one of the most amusing anecdotes reported in the news regarding the violent clashes between pro-Trump groups, anarchist groups and the police, The Hill, in reporting on the arrests noted that “six people were arrested Saturday,  but none of those stemmed from COVID-19 regulations. D.C. police have not been enforcing mask rules or issuing fines to social distancing violators, according to the [Washington] Post.” 

So, in the midst of a virtual riot, the Washington Post and The Hill appeared to be more concerned not with people being stabbed, but with the fact that nobody was arrested for violating “COVID-19 regulations.” 

We are truly living in strange times.
