Six More Examples of Anti-Trump Violence
2. Last Thursday, a California high school teacher was punched in the face by an anti-Trump student trying to recruit anti-Trump protesters.
Via The College Fix:
Staff at College Park High School in Pleasant Hill were alerted to news that students from nearby schools were going around “recruiting” their peers from other schools to join in an anti-Donald Trump protest.
According to KTVU-2, two College Park teachers were attempting to block passage to students shortly after the principal had called for a school-wide lockdown. That’s when the scuffle broke out.
“That teacher and the other teacher that got punched were trying to block the hall but it didn’t work out,” said student Armon Aziz.
"We provide students the opportunity to express themselves but I do not condone at any time when you impede educational progress at any campus," said Principal Alvarez.
The principal says he left the gates to the school open because he heard students were jumping the gates at other schools and he didn’t want anyone getting hurt.
"Everybody was kind of trampling each other so everybody went at each other," said one student.
School officials say they went into lockdown mode, shutting the doors to the classrooms and that’s when the fight broke out.
"Hopefully we’re able to identify the student in that video," said Principal Alvarez.
We saw the teacher leaving after school let out, he didn’t want to talk but said he was ok.
3. A man was attacked and choked by two men on a New York City subway for wearing a Trump hat:
Corey Cataldo, 24, of the Bronx, said he was riding the uptown 5 train from Union Square to Morris Park Friday, when another rider on the subway spotted his "Make America Great Again" hat and apparently didn't like it.
He spoke exclusively on television for Eyewitness News reporter Lucy Yang.
Cataldo explained that the situation heated up as the train got close to the 138th Street/Grand Concourse station.
"He asked me if I'm a Trump supporter. I said 'yeah' and thought he'd say 'me too.' People have been doing that," Cataldo said. "But no. This man was not a Trump supporter."
Cataldo said the man stood up and became flustered.
"The next thing I know, I have hands around my neck and I'm being choked," Cataldo said. "I try to fight him off, and another gentleman comes over, pretends like he's going to help me and says 'get off of him.' He shoves me up against the wall, up against the window."
He said no one on the train did anything to help. He was finally able to escape.
The NYPD has been notified of the incident, and they're looking for the two men involved.
