For quite some time the left has allowed their hatred of President Donald Trump to cause them to act irrationally. Recently, liberal media, celebrities and even politicians have been openly inciting violence against right-wing politicians and their supporters, with Trump and his followers as their top targets.
Footage captured during an anti-Trump demonstration showed a group of protesters in central London beating an elderly fan of President Trump until he was finally forced to the ground. “Donald Trump’s not welcome here,” were the chants the angry left-wing mob cried as they pummeled the poor old man causing him to collapse to the floor during the rally in Parliament Square. This came after the leader of Britain’s left-wing Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, delivered a clearly anti-Trump speech that clearly led to a highly provoked audience out there in the square.
Ironically, Corbyn’s speech which led to the attack, criticized the “hatreds that are being fueled by the far-right in politics in Britain, in Europe and the United States.” The video surfaced after someone at the same protest threw a milkshake at another Trump supporter while he was surrounded by several anti-Trump protesters chanting “Nazi scum,” as The Telegraph reported. In the video the older man who was wearing a red and white hat, attempted to deter his attackers as best he could. He can be heard saying “get off” as the other men grabbed his jacket and pushed him. Fellow trump supporters around him immediately helped him get back up and made sure he was not injured.
Thousands of people showed up in London’s government district on Tuesday as Trump met failing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May nearby. The group was demonstrating against the president’s state visit to the U.K. The protest was spearheaded by the tired “Baby Trump” blimp which depicts the president as an angry orange baby. Demonstrators filled Trafalgar Square and spilled down Whitehall, a street lined with government offices, before marching half a mile to Parliament. Many paused to admire and take pictures with a robotic likeness of Trump sitting on a golden toilet reciting catchphrases including “No collusion” and “You are fake news.”
Trump put a clever spin on the the protests, saying he saw “thousands of people in the streets cheering” and waving U.S. and U.K. flags, but just a “very, very small” group of protesters, adding that media reports of a much larger protest were “fake news.”
Trump was on a 3-day state visit to the U.K. which started on Monday and ended on Wednesday with commemorations of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The president’s trip included a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, a state dinner at Buckingham Palace and another dinner hosted by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump for Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles in the official residence of the United States ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Corbyn declined an invitation to Monday’s banquet for the president at Buckingham Palace, but requested a meeting with Trump, which the president refused. “He wanted to meet today or tomorrow and I decided I would not do that,” said Trump, calling Corbyn “somewhat of a negative force.”
