Anti-fascist activists can now add the cowardly bullying of the elderly to their shameful list of harassment accomplishments.
The left-wing protesters were captured in a video assailing an elderly couple in Canada who were trying to cross the street.
“Nazi scum, off our street!” one protester shrieked repeatedly as the man accompanying an elderly woman with a walker were confronted in the middle of the road during a protest at Mohawk College in Ontario. The couple was physically blocked from moving forward by the activists shouting their slogans.
The protest was reportedly over an event being held by YouTube personality Dave Rubin and Canadian politician Maxime Bernier at the college, according to the CBC. Supporters of the People’s Party of Canada clashed with opposing groups who advocated for immigrant rights while comparing attendees to Nazis and neo-Nazis.
According to CBC, the elderly woman was a ticket holder to the event and was trying to get to the entrance when the activists blocked her and the man with her while shouting in their faces.
“The elements that are with Maxime Bernier today are … all about violence and not being inclusive,” protester Sean Dowling said, apparently missing the obvious hypocrisy.
CBC reported that a “large crowd of about 100 protesters” were on hand shouting their slogans and a “scuffle” ended with two men being arrested.
Journalist Andy Ngo, who was brutally attacked by Antifa while covering a rally in Portland in June and said he sustained a brain injury during the assault, shared videos and images of the protesters outside the Canadian event.
Hamilton police reported four arrests for “breach of the peace,” according to CBC, but all were released later without charges.
As in the US, antifa in Ontario, Canada assaulted members of the public outside the venue. A handful were detained in a police van then released without charges. https://t.co/J4ZONAIAOe pic.twitter.com/3Rt3A5R90p

Ngo’s video noted the “masked” Antifa protesters who interfered with police as they attempted to shut down the event.

Despite repeated acts of violence by Antifa members, Democrats have avoided outright condemnation of their behavior and have, at times, praised their “courageous” stands while equally condemning white nationalists. Former Vice President Joe Biden kicked off his 2020 presidential bid with a campaign video that claimed President Trump called the white supremacists marching in 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia “very fine people.”
The Democrats’ hypocrisy was glaring several weeks ago as freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced a fundraiser intended to raise bail money for a group of protesters that included Antifa members.

Twitter users slammed Sunday’s protests in Canada as well as the shameful harassment of the elderly and the lack of action by bystanders.
Lack of respect for the elderly is never acceptable and should be meet with sever consequences. This is when I say certain people just need a good old fashioned beat-down.

Faces covered, cuz they’re super-brave like that. The courage it takes to block & scream at a senior citizen on their way to an evening of conversation is impressive. When you are willing to lay everything on the line to force others to believe what you believe. Choked up.

I’m equally disgusted at the people standing there with their phones and not standing up to these bullies. I don’t care if you’re on the clock working. That right there is far past the line in the sand and just seeing this makes me want to smack these thugs across the dome

I don’t know if the people hovering around with cameras are journalists, but there’s something inherently wrong with a dozen adults within spitting distance doing absolutely nothing to stop this elderly couple from being harassed by Antifa.

Meanwhile the event itself was all about tolerance, diversity of thought and freedom. Hmm…

The reason no men stepped in to do anything is because of the leftists in government who support Antifa. Antifa people are picked up and then released without charges while any who stand up to them and fight back face jail time. It’s sickening.

For a group that’s name literally means Anti-Fascist they sure do exhibit a lot of suspiciously fascist behaviour
