VIDEO: Antifa Brings Their Hate To Texas, Chants For 'Dead Cops,' Get A Texas Whoopin'

Austin Antifa Protesters Assault Police, Chant For 'Dead Cops' - Get A Texas Whoopin'

Austin, Texas - About 150 Antifa descended on Austin on Saturday ready to fight "nazis" at a non-existent Dixie Freedom Rally. With no nazis present, the group turned on the police.

The Texas Confederate Militia had initially scheduled the rally for Saturday, but decided to postpone it due to backlash. Antifa either didn't believe it was canceled or didn't care and decided to show up anyway.

"The protestors were antagonized by this one dude who came up, I don't know where, grabbed … the microphone, and started talking about … the police,” said Nicolas Ortiz, one of the organizers of the protest, according to KVUE.

“Saying thank you so much, you know I want to thank the police -- until it kind of got out of hand. It escalated from there, people started pushing him, I walked around, got caught up in the mix."

Antifa were upset with the person thanking the police and a fight broke out.

The rally took a specifically anti-police tone and somebody decided to attack a police officer. The officers on scene responded quickly and arrested two people.

One of the people arrested for assaulting an officer was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries sustained during the arrest, according to mySA.

In the video, the group can be heard chanting, "Dead cops, dead cops, dead cops," and addition to their commonly used "Cops and Klan go and in hand."

Despite the anti-police tone, the police worked to keep everybody safe and only arrested people who were acting violently.

“Our presence out there is for their safety,” Austin Police Commander Michael Eveleth said. “We’re not going out there against them. We’re out there to help them express their First Amendment right and to provide them a safe atmosphere.”

You can see video of the protest and arrests below. WARNING: Language.

Those Texas Police should have beat all those thugs down and put them all in jail! Antifa are nothing more than a bunch of terrorists! They are a hate group and no better than the KKK is.

Antifa lives does not matter.!! This is proof that today's generation of Youth is pussies. When the Home Economics class meets up with the Arts and Crafts class and forms a gang of dorks and nerds ,who go out and try to antagonize the police. And did anyone notice the break in the action? When everybody's ADD medication wore off? Oh look a grasshopper!?! I truly wish nothing but the very worst upon them all

It's my opinion that the Texas DPS is among the finest, if not the finest, law enforcement agencies in the country. Educated and experienced, highly trained and professional, they are the creme de la creme. And, besides you know... Texas. ;)

These punk ass kids are way out of control, Police need to use high power water spray to break this mess up. Parents need to take responsibilities to raise there own children to be respectful if you all want to get something across to the public and hide your face NEVER will anyone listen, You are just being a chicken shit. The 2 people that are keeping this going are hillery and obama with there hitchman .

It is interesting that they are waving the communist red flags. They chant how they hate the police. Have they seen what communist police do to protesters?
