Political Violence Breaks Out in San Diego in Wake of Capitol Siege

Trouble is brewing from coast to coast.

As the shock and awe begin to wear off after the events of January 6th, (albeit appropriately slowly), there are credible fears that our nation is not out of the woods yet.

The FBI and other authorities have been warning that more violence could soon be coming to our nation’s capital, surrounding the inauguration of Joe Biden.  This has prompted the National Park Service to restrict access to the Washington Monument, and has DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to request a number of extracurricular law enforcement forces to patrol the city.

Clear across the country, the Capitol siege is inflaming tensions between supporters of President Trump and those who oppose his presidency, moving some to violence. 

Supporters of President Donald Trump clashed with counter-protesters in San Diego on Saturday, prompting police to declare the gathering an unlawful assembly because of acts of violence.

Officers were hit with rocks, bottles and eggs, police said, and the crowd directed pepper spray at them.

KSWB-TV tweeted video of counter demonstrators, most of them dressed in black and waving an antifa flag, throwing a folding chair and spraying a chemical irritant at a smaller group of people participating in the march on the Pacific Beach boardwalk.

The incidents were soon being broadcast on social media.

There are only 9 days left of Donald Trump’s first term as President, and the potential for trouble remains high over the course of the next week.
