Jim Goad on what happened at that Sacramento neo-Nazi thingie

According to organizers from the Traditionalist Worker Party, they planned a June 26 rally at the California State Capitol in Sacramento to protest widespread police indifference toward multiple violent attacks toward Trump protestors in California. But before the rally started, the tiny cluster of 30 or so white nationalists was besieged by an estimated 300 or so violent leftist fanatics who came throwing fists, tossing rocks, and swinging bats. Due to the bloodshed that ensued, the rally never materialized.
The leftist agitators were so openly and impenitently violent that they attacked a news crew, snatching a reporter’s mic and slamming a skateboard into a videographer’s guts.
Even the police were targets of unhinged leftist violence, with several reports of anti-fascist protestors tossing explosive devices at police horses. (…)
The punch line—pun intended—to the Sacramento melee is that although the Traditional Worker Party and Golden State Skinheads were outnumbered by about ten to one, they apparently emerged victorious. Out of an estimated five to seven stabbing victims, only one was on the “white” side. Of the ten or so people who were sent to the hospital after the fracas, only one was a “Nazi.” In a few cases, knives were reportedly wrested from leftist assailants and used against them. If true, that’s pure poetry.
