WATCH: Alleged Antifa members hurl eggs, drink at Trump supporters
- A new video posted on YouTube depicts alleged Antifa members hurling eggs at two supporters of President Donald Trump who were giving out “free hugs.”
- The two YouTubers and hosts of Operation Cold Front also spoke at the University of Washington College Republicans meeting, where an alleged Antifa member attempted to chain lock them in the room.
Two pro-Trump YouTube hosts, who had previously almost been locked in a university lecture hall by an alleged Antifa member, recently had eggs thrown at them by more purported members of the group.
The incident, which involves Operation Cold Front hosts Saleem Juma and Dion Thompson, comes amid numerous Antifa attacks making headlines. Juma and Thompson were previously almost chain-locked in a room by another alleged Antifa member when speaking at a College Republicans meeting.
In a YouTube video, alleged Antifa members are shown egging and throwing a drink at the two hosts, who were wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats while holding a “Free Hugs from a Trump Supporter” sign. A student, who was conversing with Juma and Thompson, was another victim of the Seattle, Wash. attack.
It was not clear what led up to to the moments caught on video, as the recording is edited. However, the clip clearly shows the men in "Make America Great Again" hats having objects thrown at them, seemingly without provocation.
Scrolling text in the video states that police were called but never showed up to the scene. The Seattle Police Department did not respond to Campus Reform's requests for comment when asked to confirm whether that is true.
“We’ve been assaulted here four or five times now, just for wearing Trump hats,” Juma said to a bystander in the video. “That’s ridiculous. You can not like Trump, but if you’re going to assault people over a political opinion, that’s a ‘you’ problem, not a ‘me’ problem.”
Immediately afterward, an alleged Antifa activist can be seen hurling eggs at them. One egg directly hit the student’s head.
"I’m bleeding,” the student said in the video. “I’m bleeding in the ear right now…blood, right there. In my hand, right there.”
“This guy isn’t even conservative, he was just standing with us, asking questions,” Juma explained, describing the student.
“These Antifa groups will attack anybody, and that video shows that they’re even willing to attack someone that’s not conservative,” Thompson told Breitbart News. “They’re willing to attack anybody.”
Later in the video, it appears that more attackers hurled eggs at the YouTubers from the roof. Another attacker threw a drink at Thompson.
“You might not support Trump or whatever, but the thing is, if you can’t even express a political opinion without getting attacked, that’s a problem,” Juma later stated in the video.
Campus Reform contacted Operation Cold Front (OCF) to ask if Juma and Thompson believe the attackers were Antifa members. OCF provided screenshots of tweets where Juma and Thompson’s location was posted by Antifa-associated accounts.
OCF also pointed out to Campus Reform that toward the end of the video, a person who Juma and Thompson suspected of being an Antifa member was following them.
As Campus Reform previously reported, Juma and Thompson were speaking at a University of Washington College Republicans meeting when an alleged Antifa member attempted to chain lock the doors shut. The individual was later arrested but will not face charges.
