A left-wing pro-abortion fanatic was caught on video beating up an 85-year-old man because the elderly man had a pro-life sign.
The attack, which occurred in San Francisco earlier this month, showed up on Twitter recently.
According to LifeSite News:
On Thursday, March 14, an 85-year-old pro-life advocate was the victim of a brutal attack outside a San Francisco Planned Parenthood facility. The pro-lifer was participating in a peaceful 40 Days for Life campaign when the assailant stole the victim’s banner and viciously beat the victim. The same assailant had assaulted the victim and another man just two days prior.
The liberal criminal approached the pro-life group and tried to stop their peaceful gathering.
The elderly man tried to stop the theft of the banner by putting a stick holding the banner into the spokes of the bicycle. The perpetrator shoved the man to the ground and began violently and repeatedly kicking and threatening him.
“Old man, stay on the ground. Stay on the ground, old man, unless you wanna get hurt,” the leftist attacker yelled.
“The vicious attack against our elderly client is intolerable,” Life Legal Senior Counsel Allison Arand. “We will pursue all legal avenues to see that justice is served and that the freedom to speak freely on the public sidewalk without threat of physical violence is protected no matter the message. As a former prosecutor, I trust that the San Francisco District Attorney’s office will pursue all legal charges against the perpetrator and bring him to justice.”
“We are appalled by this brazen assault against an elderly man who was simply exercising his First Amendment rights on a public sidewalk,” said Life Legal Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “Life Legal will not sit by and allow the escalation of violence to continue, and we are working to ensure that pro-life advocates are protected and that perpetrators are brought to justice.”

Police took statements from the pro-lifers assaulted, but it isn’t likely the police in such a left-wing city will be much interested in doing anything about the attack.
