As supporters and opponents of Donald Trump clashed violently in Berkeley, Calif. on Saturday, video of the confrontations quickly made their way to social media showing the two sides exchanging blows and heated words. One particularly shocking video immediately became viral as it showed a Trump supporter delivering a forceful sucker punch to the face of a young woman who seems to have been completely taken by surprise and fell to the ground. Social media users quickly identified the aggressor as Nathan Damigo, founder of white supremacist group Identity Evropa.
Well that is really disgusting.
It even pissed off Captain America.
There have been a number of claims on social media that the violence was actually started by agitators who were there, NOT to protest for either side, but rather to start fights and create a meme that anti-Trump folks are violent thugs.I hope I run into Nathan. https://t.co/bPfSObqiGl— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) April 16, 2017
THAT by the way is a favorite tactic of Vladimir Putin.
It should also be noted that MOST of yesterday's protests were completely free of any violence.
