Only in America
A Bernie Sanders supporter who carried an American flag to protest a far-right demonstration in Portland, Ore., was beaten up by far-left Antifa protesters who decided he was a fascist. Paul Welch, 38, says he carried the flag to “take it back” from right-wing nationalists. But two black-masked Antifa rioters told him the flag was a “fascist symbol” and struck him on the back of the head with a club.
A New York couple was barred from New York’s Statue of Liberty for wearing “Abolish ICE” T-shirts. Tiffany Huang says she and her fiancé wore the shirts to protest President Trump’s family-separation policy, but security guards refused to let them in unless they removed the shirts. A National Park Service spokesman has apologized, saying, “This never should have happened.”
