Washington, D.C. - White supremacists and anarchists faced off while the white supremacists were hosting an anti-war rally in DC on Saturday. Video from the incident shows an outbreak of violence, mostly from the anarchists, and police officers were forced to protect the groups from each other. We have multiple videos from the incident below.
The Daily Caller had a reporter at the rally recording the white supremacist anti-war protest. The protest was led by infamous white supremacist Richard Spencer, who apparently doesn't support military action in Syria. His group of protesters appeared to be taking the stance that the military action was done on behalf of Jews in Israel, and white supremacists hate Jews, so they didn't support a "jewish war."
Then the anarchists showed up, carrying a Soviet Union flag, and immediately started attacking the reporter:
Police had to step in to separate the groups as violence broke out between the groups:

Anarchists chanted "Nazis go home," and Spencer's group chanted, "Commies go home," which they transitioned to, "Take a shower," as the anarchists continued to assault the white supremacists.

It was telling that the group of anarchists was being more violent than a group of racists.
After getting glitter bombed, Richard Spencer had enough and his group took off. As he tried to get to a cab, a group of anarchists pulled him back and started to beat on him before police intervened.
