A pair of Antifa punks have been arrested and charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault, and terroristic threats for a mass attack on a group of Marine Reservists on November 15.
The thugs were part of the Antifa protest against “Nazis” at a rally they cynically dubbed the “We The People Rally.” But, like always, it turned out it was the liberals who were the Nazis when they surrounded and attacked a group of Marine Reservists. The Antifa criminals screamed that the Marines were “Nazis” and “white supremacists” as they maced the Marines, and punched and kicked them, and stole some of the reservist’s belongings.
Philly police released a video of several Antifa thugs they want for questioning:
Officers later arrested Tom Keenan, 33, in suspicion of being one of the attackers.
Keenan has been a member of the Philly Antifa for ten years and has an arrest record for other violent actions perpetrated at Antifa rallies.
In 2007 Keenan was arrested and charged with multiple felonies for engaging in violence during a KKK rally held in the city. He bargained the charges down to disorderly conduct and essentially got off scot free
Three days later, Philly police announced that they had made a second arrest in the attack on the reservists.
According to the Philly Metro:
Thomas Massey, 32, of West Philadelphia, surrendered on Nov. 28 to face charges for the alleged incident on the 100 block of Chestnut Street, in which a group of U.S. Marine reservists some blocks from the rally they were assaulted by a group of men and women calling them “Nazis” and “white supremacists.” One complainant said their phone was stolen…
Massey is now charged with two counts each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault and terroristic threats for the incident. He was freed on bail of $10,000 after posting 10 percent, according to court records.
This thug was also on hand in Washington D.C. to disrupt Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration ceremonies.
Massey later admitted that the attack on D.C. should have been “more violent.”
“I think there should have been more violence yesterday,” said Massey, who was among those arrested. Asked if he participated in the violence, Massey replied, “There were some rocks thrown.” He said that he hopes next time, demonstrations will be “more successful. I’ll get to punch a Nazi. I didn’t get to do that yesterday. The police stopped me.”
So, where is the national news to decry this political violence?
Oh, right. It is liberals acting out the violence, so the media is not interested. I guess when the angry and violent white men are liberals, the media just doesn’t want to talk about it.
