So were they just random people without any affiliation who just happened to be in a random place and committed random "peaceful" acts?

Clearly organized.  The Democrat Party owns these anarchists.

Protesters at Trump's Phoenix rally used gas canisters, rocks to assault police

A group of anti-Trump demonstrators used gas canisters, rocks and bottles to assault police Tuesday night and create havoc at what officials said was mostly a peaceful protest in Phoenix.

Video captured by a local reporter also shows a smoking object being thrown at police while hundreds of officers attempted to keep order at a rally after President Trump's speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended.

"A very small number of individuals chose criminal conduct," Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters late Tuesday.

The individuals broke down fencing and "at one point dispersed gas into and at the police officers," Williams said. "They had their own gas they threw at police, not our gas."

The violence resembled the mayhem perpetrated by Antifa groups, militant far-left "anti-fascist" groups that have protested Trump at other venues.

Local Phoenix officers dressed in riot gear finally had to disperse pepper balls and tear gas at the crowds. Officers first directed pepper spray at individual protesters before they deployed a larger-scale gas.

"Officers were forced then at that time to really protect themselves, to protect the community, to protect property and they did so successfully and professionally," Williams said.

Four people were arrested in connection with the protest, and two of those were charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

A reporter with the Arizona Republic captured video of a lit object being thrown toward police officers from a crowd of people gathered in downtown Phoenix. The video shows the object begins smoking after striking a police officer.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton described the event as a largely civil celebration of First Amendment rights -- with tens of thousands of demonstrators -- but noted a "very small number of people" who chose to engage in "acts of assault on our police officers."

Stanton said the group used gas, rocks and bottles and called the incident "very, very unfortunate."

"I don't think they're affiliated with any organization," Stanton said of the individuals arrested.

"Thank God no one was hurt here tonight," he told reporters, noting that two officers were treated for heat exhaustion.

Similar incidents among anti-Trump protesters have been reported at other rallies across the country.

In June, an arsenal of weaponry -- including clubs, knives, bricks and what look like spears -- were seized by police in Portland, Ore., when rival political groups clashed during a pro-Trump, free-speech rally. Law enforcement clad in riot gear had to shield themselves from rocks and other projectiles thrown by anti-Trump protesters, according to local news outlets.

At one point during the Portland demonstrations, several anti-Trump protesters – black-clad and masked – were seen waving an "Antifascist Action" flag at pro-Trump activists.

Antifa groups have come under fire in the wake of the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Many have said Antifa demonstrators played a significant role in the violent clashes in Charlottesville and at other events across the country.

A White House petition, meanwhile, is demanding that the Trump administration officially label Antifa a "terror group." As of Wednesday, the petition had more than double the 100,000 signatures needed to merit a formal response from the White House.

FBI, DHS warned of increasingly violent Antifa clashes in 2016, documents show

By Lucia I. Suarez Sang Published September 01, 2017 Fox News

Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous.

Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists.

Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”

The agencies warned the rise of fascist, nationalist, racist or anti-immigrant groups in U.S. political discourse could lead to violent backlash from these “anarchist extremists.”

Not surprised. 

BTW, I've been in Virginia the past couple days.  No KKK in sight.   Smiley

Also, a little off topic, but I popped into a university bookstore, browsing.  Thumbed through a fairly new political science book.  Some of the most biased garbage I've ever seen.  In talking about the history of conservatism and liberalism, it linked "right wing" conservatism with the KKK.  Then gave a rosey picture of liberalism and its roots in socialism and communism.  I cannot believe we are teaching our young people this crap.

Arizona restaurant closes following backlash from its pro-Trump Facebook post
Fox News


Cup it Up, a restaurant in Tucson, Ariz., shuttered its doors indefinitely Monday after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote received criticism from social media users.  (Google Earth image)

An Arizona restaurant was forced to close its doors indefinitely this week after a politically charged Facebook post the eatery’s owners wrote prompted mass criticism from social media users.

Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported.

The post stated: "We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing Obama Care…”

The post also listed, God, the Bill of Rights, drug screening for welfare recipients and the U.S. Armed Forces among others they praised.

Their list of things they don’t believe in or support included: “Those that DON’T respect our President, Armed Forces and First Responders, kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, global warming and late night hosts getting political…”

The post concluded with: “If you like this post, please share it with 5 friends and we look forward to your next visit! If you disagree with this post, please share it with 100 friends and we won’t be expecting you anytime soon!”

The restaurant’s post also mentioned the eatery would not broadcast NFL games until “the organization got it together.”

The post, which went viral, was met with widespread backlash and criticism, forcing the restaurant to delete it and all its social media accounts.

The restaurant received “so many angry phone calls” that several employees chose to quit, reports say.

"People threatened to burn down the restaurant with the owners in it. It's a crazy world we're in," Ron Sanchez, whose daughter worked at the eatery, told ABC15.

Ericka Ayup, a regular customer of the restaurant, told ABC 15 the post was not “smart” but respected their opinion.

"I respected their decision to speak up and be patriotic whether people agree or not," Ayup told ABC 15. "It wasn't smart for them to do what they did from a business aspect especially being down here in the University -- which is more liberal and young." 

The restaurant apologized for the post but social media users flooded the eatery’s Yelp page with negative reviews.

Pro-Trump Arizona restaurant will reopen after closing over Facebook backlash

Fox News

The owners of the Cup It Up restaurant in Tucson, Ariz., say they’re hoping to open “sometime soon” after closing their doors earlier this month following a "nasty" backlash over a pro-POTUS Facebook post.

Chris Smith and Jay Warren claim they received so much backlash after they shared their pro-Trump opinions that employees chose to quit, leading them to “close [Cup It Up’s] doors indefinitely” on Oct. 9.

“We expected some shares, some discussion, but as it kept coming in, after about three hours of the pure nastiness, we decided to pull it,” co-owner Smith said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”

Now, however, Smith and Warren confirmed that they plan to reopen Cup It Up in the near future, and they’re clearing up why they chose to post their Facebook message in the first place.

“The National Anthem [issue] really struck home with me, as a Navy veteran,” explained Smith. “My take on the national anthem is a patriotic one. I served in the Persian Gulf,” said Smith, who explained that the anthem “took on a whole new meaning” after hearing it sung during a Super Bowl while he was stationed overseas.

“Fast-forward to today, now I turn on the TV and the gentlemen are kneeling,” he added. “I know I’m not diminishing their cause, but there’s just no justification to disrespect our national anthem and the men and women who served in the armed forces.”

Smith also said that, if the tables were turned and he saw a post critical of his beliefs, he would “keep that to myself” rather than share his opinions on social media.

Neither Smith nor Warren revealed an exact date for the reopening of Cup It Up.

Smith and Warren took to Facebook in early October to share a post in which they shared a list of the things they “support 100 percent” as well as the things they “do NOT support.”

Included among the things they supported were “our president,” “always standing for the national anthem,” “the U.S. Armed Forces” and “repealing Obama Care,” as seen in their since-deleted post. Conversely, things they didn’t support included “those that don’t respect our president,” “kneeling during the national anthem,” “Antifa,” “political correctness” and “global warming,” among others.

"Turning this into a discussion of 'free speech' is playing right into the fascists' hands."

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D6b-QHZ2Yc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D6b-QHZ2Yc</a>

After a meeting of the Student Republicans was disrupted by unhinged "protesters" last week at the University of California Santa Cruz, the President of the UCSC Student Democrats, Weslyn Church, stood up for their First Amendment Rights. Predictably, if disappointingly, she was raked over the internet coals for her trouble. Doesn't she know that conservatives don't have rights?

College Reform reports that, in a Facebook post, Church said "As the President of the College Democrats at UCSC, I stand in support of the College Republicans' right to free speech and free assembly." She said that she knows that if "this situation happened to the College Democrats," the College Republicans "would do the same."

She went on to say that "The organizers of this disruption harmed not only the civil debate that was ongoing, but also the studying experience of those in the library. These protesters should be ashamed of their un-American and undemocratic actions," while praising the College Republicans for being "nothing but polite and cordial."

A depressingly small number of people agreed with her, and a lot of people lost their minds that she would suggest Republicans should have Constitutional rights. Comments (College Reform has the screenshots)  included "You're the same f-ing party; neoliberal, capitalist, racist, narc-ass cop loving,  Wall Street zombie f-ks," "turning this into a discussion of 'free speech' is playing right into the fascists' hands," and "Un-American LOLOL." There's also the very eloquent "LAUGHING OUT LOUD hahahahahaha," which is sure to win hearts and minds.

We are at a time in our nation's history in which college students, who are supposed to be at an elite level of learning, don't believe that groups with which they disagree are entitled to Constitutional rights. They don't believe that it is un-American to deny others those rights. What's the point of higher education if college students don't know middle-school civics?

Anti-Gunner Sentenced to Anger Management After Assaulting Pro-Gun Election Observer

Why are civilian disarmament advocates so violent? . . . Gun control advocate pleads guilty to assaulting gun rights activist during election recount

The charge stems from an incident that took place last November, during a state Senate race recount at the state archives building on South Fruit Street.

Susan Olsen, a prominent gun-rights activist, was volunteering as a Republican observer to watch the recount between incumbent Democrat Andrew Hosmer and Republican Harold French. Olsen claimed that when she asked counters to move ballots closer so she could better see them, (New Hampshire State Rep. Katherine) Rogers, who was volunteering as a Democratic observer, smacked her upside the head.

After pleading guilty, Rogers had a $1000 fine suspended (for “good behavior” no less), but will have to attend an anger management class to learn how to behave in a civil manner around those with whom she disagrees politically.

Rogers’ attorney, William Christie, said Friday his client, who has often sponsored gun-control legislation, had merely “touched” Olsen, but accepted responsibility.

Rogers — who was named…wait for it…New Hampshire’s Humane Legislator of the Year in 2017 — apparently doesn’t think law abiding citizens of New Hampshire should be trusted with the responsibility for keeping and bearing arms. Can you say…projection?

Students wearing MAGA hats booted from ‘safe space’ coffee shop
By Jennifer Bain and Mary Kay Linge
December 9, 2017

A social justice warrior booted her fellow Fordham University students from a Bronx campus coffee shop because their pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hats violated its “safe space” policy.

“It was absolutely insane,” Fordham junior Aaron Spring, 20, told The Post of the Thursday incident. “We weren’t even talking politics — we were talking about finals.”

A video of the encounter appeared Friday on the conservative CampusReform website.

Students wearing Trump’s trademark MAGA ball caps were accosted by a student worker at Rodrigue’s Coffee House, which is run by volunteers and is organized as a club.

“Get out! Five minutes,” the worker barked. “I’m protecting our customers … you are wearing hats that completely violate safe space policy. You have to go. ”

She exploded when Michael Esposito, 19, asked her to explain.

“Fascism, Nazis!” shouted the snowflake. “You have three minutes.”

“I do not see fascism, Nazis on this hat,” Esposito answered. “I see America.”

“It was humiliating to be called a Nazi in front of so many people I go to school with,” Esposito told The Post. “It’s almost scary.”

The students said they were not seeking trouble.

“It’s not like we’re here reading off a manifesto,” said Sebastian Balasov, 21..

The cafe has a lengthy set of “safer space” rules. including “Do not make assumptions about someone’s gender, sexuality, race, class, or experiences” and “No racism – No sexism – No homophobia.”

The rules do not mention headgear.

“They try to say that all are welcome,” Spring said. “But if you talk about diversity, that has to include diversity of thought and opinion, too.”

Bette Midler's Rand Paul tweet sparks outrage
By Sasha Savitsky   | Fox News

Bette Midler shocked the Twitterverse on Thursday with a post suggesting Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., should be physically attacked for his stance on the spending budget in the Senate.

Midler tweeted Thursday evening, "Where's Rand Paul's neighbor when we need him?"

Midler's tweet was referencing a violent November incident during which Paul was assaulted by his neighbor and suffered several injuries.

Rene A. Boucher, 58, admitted to attacking an unsuspecting Paul in his yard and is facing 21 months in prison. Paul suffered bruises to his lungs and broken ribs, and contracted pneumonia following the attack.

One of Paul's aides, Sergio Gor, called out Midler for a tweet that crossed the line.

"This is disgusting @BetteMidler calling for violence. She should be ashamed," Gor tweeted.

So you are saying that having an ideological difference with someone is grounds for assault?  So you give a pass to the bigot that assaults a person of a different race a pass?  A person that assault’s a lgbt person because of whatever excuse is cool with you?

A rep for Midler did not return Fox News' request for comment.

The Hollywood star's tweet came after the former 2016 GOP presidential contender stalled his chamber's attempt to quickly pass legislation keeping federal agencies open.

The libertarian said "I object" when Senate leaders tried speeding a vote on the measure.

Paul complained the new budget accord would drive up federal deficits.

"I ran for office because I was critical of President Obama's trillion-dollar deficits," he told the chamber's leaders. "Now we have Republicans hand-in-hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits."

He said he could not "look the other way because my party is now complicit in the deficits."

Paul said he was asking for a 15-minute debate and then a vote on his amendment, which was certain to lose. He said the 652-page measure was "printed at midnight" and was a bill that "no one has read."

Paul's fellow Kentuckian, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had no intention of caving in, knowing that would inevitably spark demands for amendment votes by other senators. Instead, they offered him a procedural vote, which Paul declined.

The move led the government to temporarily shut down from 1 a.m. on Friday until the Senate passed the deal just before 2 a.m.. However, the government had been officially shuttered for nearly two hours.

The House rushed to approve its version, wrapping up the vote just after 5:30 a.m. President Donald Trump signed the bill three hours later, reopening the government.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Michigan Church Faces Death Threats, State Investigation for Holding Biblical Sexuality Workshop
by PENNY STARR
21 Feb 2018

From the moment Metro City Church announced a workshop for teenage girls struggling from peer pressure and questions about sexual identity, Jeremy Schossau, the lead pastor for the church with campuses in Riverview and Taylor, Michigan, said he and the congregation had faced “unbridled” hate and vitriol.
“Every kind of threat imaginable, from killing my family to burning down our church, has been leveled against us,” Schossau said at a press conference at the state capitol last week with other pastors and supporters.

The latest threat came from a man who was arrested after threatening that Antifa would show up at the church. Brian Carl Begin II was arraigned Feb. 15 on misdemeanor charges.

“In the middle of the voicemail the male states if the church goes through with the gay conversion therapy class in the state of Michigan, I promise every member of the Antifa will show up ‘armed and ready. This is not a joke,’” the police told the News-Herald.

Protesters gathered at the church on the occasions of the six-week workshop — which has since been canceled — and the church has received a continuous stream of emails and voicemail claiming the aim of the course was “conversion therapy.”

The complaints and protest led two state legislators to speak out against the church, introduce a bill to make conversation therapy illegal in the state, and called on the attorney general’s office to investigate the congregation.

The News-Herald reported:

State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Twp.) is speaking out against what he called a conversion therapy workshop being hosted by a Riverview church and is demanding a state investigation into the legality of it.

The Unashamed Identity Workshop is being hosted by Metro City Church, and provided by FORGE Ministries, for girls ages 12 to 16. The six-week course costs $200.

Camilleri’s colleague, state Rep. Adam Zemke (D-Ann Arbor), has introduced House Bill 5550 to prohibit mental health professionals from engaging in efforts to change the sexual orientation and gender identity of a minor.

“It is wildly inappropriate to offer conversion therapy classes in our communities, and doing so is misrepresentative of our values as a welcoming state,” Zemke said.

The Democratic state lawmakers also sent a letter to Attorney General Bill Schuette “urging him to investigate FORGE Ministries and Metro City Church for a violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act. Specifically, whether FORGE Ministries and Metro City Church committed any unfair, unconscionable or deceptive practices,” the News-Herald reported.

But Schossau said at the press conference that the workshop was not about converting people but giving them a biblical perspective on “important issues.”

“People are saying this is conversion therapy,” Schossau said. “That cannot be further from the truth.”

“What we want is for people to be pointed to God’s word,” he said.

“In the culture in which we live in now we find kids wondering not only about sex itself but they’re wondering about their own sexual orientation,” Schossau said.

“They come to us because they trust us,” Schossau said, adding that the teenage girls who signed up for the workshop have been raised in the church.

“They know this would be a place not for condemnation but for conversation,” Schossau said.

Moreover, Schossau said, the government should not be interfering with or investigating churches.

“We do not need the government to tell us what we can or cannot say,” Schossau said. “And we don’t need the government to tell us what kind of advice to give.”

And the church is now gaining support far beyond its neighborhood or state.

The Family Research Council, a Christian family advocacy group based in Washington, DC was represented at the press conference along with other pastors, and FRC has launched a petition to stop any investigation into the church that has garnered more than 14,000 signatures.

The petition reads:

Dear Rep. Camilleri and Rep. Zemke,

You recently demanded that your state Attorney General launch an investigation into Metro City Church of Riverview, Michigan and FORGE Ministries after the church offered “The Unashamed Identity” Workshop, a safe place for teenage girls to learn what the Bible teaches about sexuality.

It is alarming that legislators, who have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, have attacked the free speech rights and free exercise of religion by a local church congregation, in direct violation of the First Amendment. Moreover, as government officials, for you to dictate what a local church must teach regarding its theology is totalitarian in nature, and is at the heart of what the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment was meant to prevent.

I urge you to respect the freedom of this church to teach what the Bible says about human sexuality and withdraw your request for an unconstitutional government investigation into Metro City Church and FORGE Ministries.

Suspect in 'white powder' letter to Trump Jr. donated to Dems, posted anti-Trump rants on Facebook
By Lukas Mikelionis   | Fox News

Donald Trump Jr.'s wife Vanessa Trump was hospitalized in New York City after opening a letter containing a suspicious white substance that was later deemed 'non-hazardous.'

The Massachusetts man who allegedly mailed a white powder to Donald Trump Jr. has previously donated to a Democratic political action committee and shared anti-Trump posts on social media, including comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

Daniel Frisiello, 24, was arrested Thursday after authorities tracked him down following the examination of a “glitter bomb” letter sent to Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber. Investigators matched the text font from the letter to other threats sent to those seen on the letters of the white-powder envelopes.

Authorities said the letter included a threatening note that read: “You are an awful, awful person. I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV. You the family idiot. Eric looks smart."


Daniel Frisiello, of Beverly, Mass., is accused of sending five letters with white powder, including to Donald Trump Jr., in early February.  (Facebook)

Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, opened the letter in the couple’s New York City apartment Feb. 12 and reported feeling nauseous and coughing. President Trump’s daughter-in-law and two other people were taken to a hospital in the incident.

The letter was postmarked in Boston on Feb. 7, had an American flag stamp and no return address. The powder was ultimately determined to be corn starch, the Associated Press reported.

Frisiello is accused of sending a total of five letters filled with white powder and faces charges of mailing a threat to injure the person of another and false information and hoaxes.

MAN ARRESTED FOR SENDING WHITE POWDER TO DONALD TRUMP JR.’S NYC APARTMENT

Frisiello’s Facebook account and other public information suggest strong hostility toward the Trump family and Republicans and sympathy toward Democratic causes, prompting him to even donate despite being reportedly unemployed.


Daniel Frisiello compares President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.  (Facebook)

In April 2016, he contributed $75 to ActBlue, a political action committee that works to raise money online for Democratic candidates and committees, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The address on the contribution matches Frisiello’s home address. The donation lists him as “not employed.”

On social media, the man – registered as a Democrat – compared President Trump, whom he also branded as the “Dark Lord, at least twice to Adolf Hitler, sharing photos from hyper-partisan left-wing Facebook pages. In another instance, he called Trump an “Adolf Hitler wannabe.”

Another shared photo shows a Ku Klux Klan rally in Washington, D.C., in the 1920s, but is captioned “a sneak peek of Trump’s inauguration.”

Frisiello also takes an indirect shot at first lady Melania Trump, sharing a British newspaper article claiming Trump is a “mentally ill narcissist” and noting that this “Explains his kids and the women he chooses.”


Daniel Frisiello, a registered Democrat, made a series of inflammatory Facebook posts.  (Facebook)

On Dec. 16, 2016, the accused man also speculated that the unsealing of the Clinton email probe search warrant would show that “Russia, [then-FBI Director] Comey and Trump were in on this horrific act.”

But Frisiello also has posted bizarre rants against his own party. He criticized Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., after she said was disappointed that a father was prevented from punching Larry Nassar, the disgraced sports doctor accused of molesting more than 260 women and girls.

Stabenow was reportedly an addressee of one of the white powder letters.

“Good god now the democrats are going off the rails,” Frisiello wrote Feb. 8. “This is not the democratic means and I am embarrassed to be in part of the same party as her, because I am not her. I would be offended if anyone I know in the democratic party has the dame[sic] feelings and thoughts of this imbecile of a senator!”

Many social media users mocked Frisiello after it appeared that he shared a news story Feb. 12 about a his alleged crime of sending a threatening letter to Trump Jr. filled with white powder.

“Dude you actually posted about your own crime? Get help you,” one person commented yesterday below Frisiello post.

“Darwin Award,” wrote another person, referring to a tongue-in-cheek award recognizing people who have contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool by their own actions.

Trump Supporter In D.C. Brutally Attacked For Being ‘Racist’
JUSTIN CARUSO
Media Reporter
04/03/2018

A woman claimed to be the victim of a brutal attack in a Washington, D.C. restaurant Tuesday, saying she was called “racist” and violently attacked for supporting Trump.

WATCH:

Heather Childers, a Fox News host, said Tuesday there was “a woman brutally attacked just for supporting the president.”

“Police releasing this surveillance video, take a look, it shows two people who allegedly assaulted a Trump supporter in a D.C. restaurant. She says the fight broke out after she overheard them talking politics and decided to jump in, voicing her support for our president,” Childers said, describing the incident.

The alleged victim, a 29-year-old named Maricela, told Fox 5 DC, “I’m a Trump supporter. I stood by my views, then they called me a racist and then they started attacking me.”

She also described her injuries from the attack on March 16th.

“My blood vessels inside my eye burst. I got a fractured finger, a bruised knee and minor bruises all over my body,” she said.

Texas elected official gets misdemeanor, accused of berating a teen girl wearing Trump T-shirt

Kellye Burke, an elected official and Moms Demand Action member in the Houston, Texas metropolitan area was charged with a misdemeanor Wednesday, accused of berating a young teenage girl wearing a Trump t-shirt.

An elected official and Moms Demand Action member in the Houston metropolitan area was charged with a misdemeanor Wednesday for allegedly berating a young teenage girl wearing a Trump T-shirt.

The Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office told Fox News that West University Place Councilwoman Kellye Burke was issued a citation for disorderly conduct Wednesday, which is punishable by fine.

“They were scared,” the father of one of the girls told the local news. “They were absolutely scared. My little girl essentially wanted to know if this woman was going to hurt her.”

Burke allegedly screamed, “Grab ‘em by the p---- girls!” at the group of four teenagers waiting in line to get cookies for younger kids at their church Saturday night, KPRC reported.

The father told the local news that when the girls tried to ignore her, she yelled the obscenity again, and then Burke started yelling, “MAGA! MAGA! MAGA!” as she shook her fist at them.

She allegedly took a photo of the girl wearing a “Trump: Make America Great Again” T-shirt before leaving.

The girls never responded, but it left them shaken.

TRUMP SUPPORTER ATTACKED BY 2 WOMEN AT DC RESTAURANT, POLICE SAY

KPRC reporter Jacob Rascon said he knocked on Burke’s door, in which she told him to “go away,” adding that she had no idea why he was there.

University police referred the case to the constable’s office, which filed a class C misdemeanor charge against Burke.

One of the families said Burke did reach out to them to apologize, but ultimately, they said, as an elected official, the voters need to handle the matter.
