Over a dozen Antifa protesters dressed in drag threatened and intimidated a conservative journalist Saturday in Washington, DC, as they counter-protested a “Demand Free Speech” rally.
Dressed in full drag, Antifa protesters surrounded independent journalist Alicia Powe as she began conducting interviews with members of the leftist organization.
The group of white males then violently clacked their rainbow emblazed fans in her face and accused her of being a white supremacist.
“Social justice warrior” thugs warned each other not to talk to the “far-right wing journalist” after noticing her camera woman was wearing an American flag scarf.
Fortunately, a massive group of District of Columbia police officers was assigned to the rally, successfully preventing violence from escalating.
The drag queen Antifa protesters are members of the organization Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who according to their website “believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty.”
“We use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency, and guilt that chain the human spirit,” the group claims.
Antifa hosted the rally to counter-protest the “Demand Free Speech Rally” organized by leading conservatives, which featured Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes and writers Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopolous.
The event comes days after journalist Andy Ngo suffered a vicious attack from Antifa in Portland. Antifa assaulted the Quileute editor, punching him, kicking him and dousing with milkshakes that authorities say were laced with “quick-drying cement.”
