Black Lives Matter and Antifa come to Poway, Ca and greatly outnumbered by patriots and Trump supporters. Poway is called the “City in the Country” and is a town with traditional American values. The current Mayor, Steve Vaus, is a county western singer. It’s not a welcoming place for Black Lives Matter and antifa anarchists.
There were about 150 patriots versus 50-60 BLM and Antifa. Patriots started off occupying three street corners and BLM/Antifa had one. Some of the BLM were high school girls.
Antifa moves to take over one of the street corners from the patriots at 00:50. A group of patriots moves in to take the corner back.
There appears to be one black person present at this event among a couple hundred participants. She is on the patriot, Trump supporter side.
The antifa holding a shield (02:30) has a cane that was believed to have a sword in it. The handle was shaped like a small pick ax. The sheriff deputies say they cannot do anything about it until they see the concealed sword.
Antifa/BLM decide to go back to their corner at about 06:25. They briefly block traffic, but the deputies come and clear them from the street.
I asked one of the high school girls why there were no blacks at the Black Lives Matter event. She said they were afraid to come. The idea that a group of self-appointed whites have to speak for blacks is a racist idea, in itself.
At 11:30, some the antifa/BLM had crossed the street to the patriot side. Someone threw a smoke bomb. The deputies get in the middle and separate the two sides. Some in the BLM/Antifa crowd start to go home.
At 15:00 the antifa group leaves.
The women in the yellow shirts are the Wall of Moms, a group that was formed supposedly to protect antifa from being attacked.
DEC is “Defend East County”, a Facebook page started to coordinate responses to terroristic Black Lives Matter mobs.
