This week, California police arrested one Anti-Fa protester for assaulting a group of Trump supporters Sunday night at an 'America First' rally in Laguna Beach. The above video shows a black man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ shirt and hat being punched squarely in the face by another man, later identified as a 20-year-old "Anti-Fascist" from Ohio.
The victim, black Trump supporter R.C. Maxwell, told a local Fox affiliate: "If the optics were completely different and I was a black lives matter supporter and I was attacked on the Trump side of a protest I would be in the spotlight on CNN right now... I went over to the left side to see if I could engage them with dialogue and I was instantly encircled by the so called anti fascists."
The attacker quickly identified himself on Twitter, with this excuse: "I did it because he would [not] stop talking about Trump when all of us told him thousands of times we didn't want to hear it. I am NOT racist... Please arrest me lmfao."
Police obliged his request and he was arrested Tuesday while trying to buy a bus pass back to Ohio. He remains in custody in lieu of bail, according to the latest reports.
