PHOTOS: San Fran Erupts in Violence as Dueling Protests Clash on the Streets

We can only hope that the election’s conclusion will bring peace back to the United States.

San Francisco, and, to a lesser extent southern California as a whole, has been largely stereotyped as a pretty “chill” sort of place.  It’s the place where surf bums and Hollywood stars mingle in the perpetually-perfect weather, sipping on designer coffees and driving a heavy swath of American culture.

But the year 2020 has been hard on all of us, and even the normally calm and cool Californians are on edge.  Not only are many dealing with an uptick in wildfires around the state, but the political morass that our country is generally affected by has frazzled many in The Golden State.

A photographer working for The Associated Press witnessed a Trump supporter being taken away in an ambulance and an injured San Francisco police officer on the ground by San Francisco’s United Nations Plaza.

Team Save America organized the rally to protest Twitter, which it said squelches conservative speech. Members of the group wore red “Make America Great Again” Trump campaign hats and carried pro-police “Thin Blue Line” flags and U.S. flags.

Footage of the fracas were soon filling social media.

Political violence has been on the rise in the United States on account of the 2020 election.  With any luck, the November 3rd contest’s conclusion will bring some peace back to America.
