Antifa protester takes multiple dramatic falls on steps of courthouse, needs better acting lessons

A Monday protest by a radical left-wing member of Antifa turned into a comedy routine as he repeatedly tumbled to the ground for no apparent reason.

The protestor, Rod Webber, was wearing a solid red shirt as a few people chanted “Nazis Out” at the West Roxbury Courthouse in Boston where he came face to face with a right-wing group arriving for a hearing for their founder Chris Hood, who was facing charges related to a protest of a drag queen story hour over the weekend, investigative journalist Any Ngo reported.

As they approached, Webber was holding a sign and had his cell phone camera pointed at the group. As the first person walked by him, he seemed to chest bump him and he dramatically fell to the ground despite not being pushed. Once prone, Webber grabbed for the man’s legs.

Picking himself up, undeterred in his mission to wreak havoc, he hurried to the courthouse door. There, after an officer tried to restrain him from entering the building, he rolled down the concrete steps of the courthouse with his arms and legs flailing about. He was not pushed by the officer, either.

But now watch it from Rod Webber’s angle to see what he is selling to his Antifa buddies.

Towards the end of the footage, an officer escorted Webber indoors and he was arrested on multiple counts including disorderly conduct and assault and battery on a police officer. He is due back in court on Sept. 19.

Of course, he claimed it wasn’t his fault that he couldn’t keep his two feet on solid ground and that, in fact, it was the other parties that caused his falls.

“I got kicked and as I went back to the steps here again I got pushed down by the police who then charge me,” Webber told WCVB.

Webber’s attorney claimed he was just there to “monitor and document hate.”

“(It’s) an unfortunate event when an individual comes here to monitor and document hate and finds themselves arrested, ” Murat Erkan said.

Not many people were buying the anarchist’s claims of being assaulted on the steps of the courthouse.

Clinging to his poor performance, Webber was later seen in a photo wearing a neck brace, although the only thing that is probably hurting is his ego.

Hood, 23, pleaded “not guilty” in court for charges of disturbing the peace while protesting a drag queen story hour after allegedly having an altercation with a counter-protester, The Boston Globe reported.

Hood’s attorney argued that his client is entitled to his God-given right to freedom of speech.

“Not everyone will agree with his messages, not everyone will agree with his views, however, [Hood] does have rights … that must be respected,” he said.

Charges against the 27-year-old whom Hood allegedly had a face-to-face with and one other Antifa protestor were dropped.

Hood’s organization, known as the Nationalist Social Club or NSC-131, was classified by the Anti-Defamation League as neo-Nazi. The “131” is an alphanumeric code for “Anti Communist Action.”
