Eleven Members of ANTIFA Indicted for Violent Attacks on Trump Supporters

Could it be that law enforcement and the justice system are finally wising up to what the true threat to democracy is, and who really are the “domestic terrorists?”

Maybe yes, maybe no – but for now, at least 11 members of ANTIFA have been indicted by a San Diego grand jury for violent attacks on peaceful Trump supporters in a protest that turned riot in Pacific Beach last year.

Prosecutors say 29 felony counts have been filed against the defendants, including conspiracy to commit a riot, use of tear gas, and assault with a deadly weapon, stemming from the Jan. 9, 2021, clash at a “Patriot March” made up of supporters of former President Donald Trump.

According to the indictment, the defendants responded to social media posts calling for “counter-protesting” about one week prior to Jan. 9, then showed up in Pacific Beach “dressed in black clothing and armed with weapons and protective gear.”

The indictment alleges that the defendants “are all affiliated with ANTIFA” and used “force, fear, and violence to further their interests and suppress the interests of others.” It continues, “The objective of this conspiracy was to incite and participate in a riot.”

Police and prosecutors allege that two counter-protest groups made up of ANTIFA members and similar left-wing extremist groups gathered at the event and attacked people perceived to be members of the “Patriot March” group. Some specific acts of which the defendants are accused include throwing a wooden lawn chair at a woman and striking her, hitting someone with a baseball bat, hitting someone with a flagpole, and attacking people with tear gas and a stun gun.”

Though video footage that proliferated on social media around the time of the riot captured violence also committed by members of the pro-Trump crowd, the D.A.’s Office said in a statement issued last year that “video evidence analysis shows that overwhelmingly the violence in this incident was perpetrated by the ANTIFA affiliates and was not a mutual fray with both sides crossing out of lawful First Amendment expression into riot and violence.”

The indictment was returned following 13 days of testimony heard by the grand jury, according to the D.A.’s Office.

Criminal charges against the defendants were originally announced last December by prosecutors.

  1. Do I believe that Antifa or BLM is going to be held responsible for all the violence and destruction they caused. Hell no, the communist democratic terrorists thugs are responsible along with BLM and Antifa. The government can go f themselves.

  2. For the police, men and women whose businessess and lives where
    destroyed the summer of 2020, this is very little comfort. I am
    glad they were charged. Compare that to the hundred that were
    arrested, put in jail with no due process for the J6. The families
    two women that were killed by capital police have not had much
    explanation for what happen. The two- tier system of law is nothing
    like what our Founders had in mind. Certainly not political prisoners.

  3. Antifa s an arm of the DNC. Nothing will happen to these people. All charges will be dropped real soon, you’ll see.

  4. DEMOCRAT PARTY NEEDS TO BE DISBANDED, THEY ARE SO CROOKED, EVIL, AND WORTHLESS!!! THEY ALLOWED STORES TO BE LOOTED AND HAVE GOODS STOLEN WITHOUT ANY PUNISHMENT WHATSOEVER. GOD HELP US, STOP THE EVIL AND TAKE OUT THE OFFENDERS

  5. Actually, our whole system needs to be overhauled. Obviously too much FOX “News” and CNN brainwashing going on in our country.

    Open your eyes and see that the citizens of our country are being pitted against one another through the Rep./Dem. divide so our government can carry on just as they please. The government is winning and we are obviously losing! The citizens of our country need to pull together for the betterment of all our people and stop this crazy party bickering, which is turning into fighting! We need to return some normality to our lives.

    Turn off the brainwashing stations and think about it for yourselves! UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
    They are dividing us and we are falling!
