George Soros Backed Inauguration Weekend MayhemOn Jan. 20, numerous protest groups demonstrated against the inauguration of Donald Trump. The next day, many more came out to protest for “women’s rights.” According to a report on a website affiliated with The New York Times, as many as 50 of these groups are directly funded by billionaire troublemaker and ultra-liberal agitator George Soros.
By John FriendThousands of anti-Trump protesters, Hillary Clinton lovers, free traders, anarchists, black victimization theory proponents, and other radical leftists descended upon Washington, D.C. the weekend of Jan. 20-22, wreaking havoc on the streets of the nation’s capital during the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the United States. Protesters attacked private businesses, engaged in physical confrontations with law enforcement officials and even assaulted several Trump supporters over the course of the weekend.
The inauguration ceremony was an elegant and classy affair, featuring several righteous speeches, including an inspiring acceptance speech by Trump himself, wherein the populist businessman doubled down on his “America first” stance on the key issues facing this once-great nation.
Blocks away, however, protesters smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police. Protesters were seen jumping on vehicles, shattering the windshields of multiple cars and a limo owned by a Muslim immigrant.
“The charge is rioting,” Newsham explained to reporters. “Our intention going into this event was to make zero arrests, and unfortunately, they forced our hand.”
According to a variety of media reports, the majority of those arrested will face felony rioting charges.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000,” CBS News reported. Several police officers were injured during the protests, and court documents filed in the case allege that rioters caused over $100,000 in damage.
