(Tea Party 247) – On Saturday, several brawls erupted at the Washington State Capitol in Olympia as pro-Trump patriots and far-left Antifa members faced off.
The tense confrontations, which are not uncommon to cities in the Pacific Northwest, erupted in gunfire.
The Gateway Pundit explains that Trump supporters had gathered at the Capitol to protest restrictive COVID lockdowns as well as show their support for POTUS, who is currently challenging the results of the 2020 election that have, according to highly questionable official counts, declared Democrat challenger Joe Biden the winner.
Antifa, who profess to be “anti-fascist,” showed up to confront and attack the Trump supporters.
Their rally was called “Squash Fascists.”
Right, squash fascists by…protesting their free speech?
Let the irony of that sink in for a moment—these people claim to fight fascism, yet they consider speech violence and show up to attack people whose hate they consider “hateful,” i.e., violent.
They’ve made a regular habit over the last several years in cities like Portland, Seattle, and Berkeley of showing up at patriotic rallies to provoke and agitate, and this is not the first time it’s ended with blood—or gun fire.
TGP notes the incident was captured by videographer Andrew Duncomb, aka Black Rebel, who posted it online.
“Patriots are tired of being attacked by antifa and they are starting to fight back,” he told the Gateway Pundit.

More than 80 million Americans believe their votes were stolen. My advice to Antifa is to steal clear of them until after the inauguration. It won’t be pretty. pic.twitter.com/hbD2UleHU8

TGP explains that one man was arrested for firing his weapon.
There have been conflicting reports on where his loyalties lay, however.
It does appear, based on social media accounts and arrest records, he was a member of the pro-Trump group.
He was booked on felony 1st degree assault and 2nd degree assault, according to the Thurston County Jail Roster.
