Unhinged “protesters” with the Muslim Defence League attacked Tommy Robinson and his supporters with bricks, bottles and eggs during a campaign event in Oldham on Saturday.
The violent attack was captured on video by multiple people — and livestreamed on Facebook by the MDL themselves.
Robinson is running as an Independent in the European Parliamentary election. He is an outspoken critic of Islam and has vowed to donate his salary to help victims of grooming gangs if he is elected.
The MDL had heard about his campaign event and encouraged their supporters to attend and throw milkshakes at the candidate.
Rebel Media reporter Jessica Swietoniowski tweeted that she was hit with an egg and a rock.
According to their Facebook page, the MDL is aimed at “fighting #islamophobia #Racism in every Town an City in the UK.” Their Twitter account is currently set to private.
They livestreamed the attack using Facebook Live.
