“Antifa didn’t expect to be outnumbered”
Antifa members came out to challenge a patriot group in Olympia, Washington, but retreated after the group fought off their attack, according to witnesses and Twitter posts.
The Antifa group reportedly posted a “bash fascists” poster on social media before the incident.
Multiple brawls took place in the Washington capital city of Olympia on Saturday after an Antifa group showed up to confront a patriot group, independent videographer Andrew Duncomb told Breitbart News in a phone interview. “Antifa didn’t expect to be outnumbered,” Duncomb said. “They quickly retreated after the patriots fought back.”
Duncomb said the patriot’s protest was peaceful until Antifa showed up and began breaking into vehicles and stealing flags from the cars to burn in the street.
The first fight broke out near the State Capitol as punches and pepper spray flew freely between the groups. At one point in the brawl captured on video by Duncomb, a shot can be heard and multiple people reported, “shots fired.”
