On Tuesday, the Gateway Pundit reported that Bikers for Trump is set to help provide security in order to protect Trump supporters from violent Antifa terrorists at an upcoming rally in Phoenix, Arizona.
The announcement was made on Facebook:
The page also posted a video:
One person asked: “I’m just curious,, what do you do if a Trump supporter is attacked? Just standing there doesn’t seem to work on those out to hurt others. Also if rioting starts then what? I’ve seen where bikers for Trump has been but still people were injured.”
In response, one person suggested: “Wear a CNN shirt, then clean the bike with your new ANTIFA rag.”
Another person added: “Well.. There are no guarantees in life.. so, we will just do the best we can. Being 6’4″ and 300lbs helps.”
“I am concerned for everyone’s safety tonight. Will the Mayor of Phoenix order the police to stand down as so many Democrat mayors have done?” another supporter asked, with good reason.
There is ample concern this could be the case. As the Daily Caller reported, questions have been raised about the role police played in the Charlottesville melee:
Law enforcement was on hand at the dueling demonstrations on Saturday, decked out in riot gear and looking prepared for the worst. Except they weren’t allowed to do their job. Police on the scene were reported to have been ordered to “not intervene until given command to do so,” according to the ACLU. That kept them from suppressing the numerous scuffles that broke out.
When police were ordered to disperse the alt-right rally, that act directed the white nationalists into the antifa demonstrators, leading to further street brawls. Police didn’t seem to try to get in between the two groups or suppress the fights.
As ProPublica reported, state police and National Guardsmen mostly stood aside and watched as the violence grew worse.
This appears to be a direct result of what appears to be a stand down order from higher-ups.
That account was corroborated by an eyewitness we spoke to earlier this month.
Antifa has stepped up its violent activities against Trump supporters — people they see as being Nazis. As we recently reported, one man was slashed with a knife simply because he had short hair.
A White House petition calls for the administration to name Antifa a terrorist group. That petition has now exceeded 200,000 signatures. The state of New Jersey has already listed Antifa — an organization that seeks to enact what it calls “anarcho-Communism” — as a terrorist group.
Trump is expected to speak in Phoenix at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton asked the president to cancel the rally, but said he’s “under no illusions” that Trump will heed his request.
“We don’t want to cancel the presidential visit overall, but a delay would be the appropriate action by the White House,” Stanton said Monday afternoon.
According to NPR:
…Still, the mood in parts of downtown Phoenix and more broadly across the desert region is tense. Vandalism was reported this week at a Confederate memorial east of the city this week, the second time in as many days. Groups from the far-left, like ANTIFA, as well as the far-right, including militias and pro-open carry gun activists, are also expected to have a significant presence outside the convention center.
