According to reports, members of the far-left Antifa movement gathered at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street to protest the “Jews for Trump” caravan passing through the city.

Videos posted on social-media show Antifa protesters hurling epithets at the caravan with some directing their vitriol at the former mayor. “F*** you, Rudy,” one man screamed.

Other protesters were seen throwing eggs at the caravan, including at Giuliani’s vehicle, while one person was filmed ripping a pro-police “Back the Blue” flag from one of the vehicles in the caravan.

Far-left demonstrators were also filmed accosting Trump supporters in Times Square, where they splashed paint on vehicles from the caravan, while fistfights broke out between the two sides.

Some 1,000 vehicles organized by the “Jews for Trump” movement set out from Monsey, N.Y.; Flatbush and Boro Park in Brooklyn; and Manhattan on Sunday, driving through the city for a rally in Marine Park.

Attacks on the convoy were reported in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

In one incident, a woman pepper-sprayed a Jewish family driving with the convoy. New York Police officers arrested seven suspects.

    So in case anyone had any doubt about the vile, anti-democratic, anti-Semitic nature of the Antifa movement, those doubts have well and truly been laid to rest. What were they protesting? The fact that supporters of the President dared to hold a rally! Oh, and especially that Jews dare to come out in support of the President! These thugs are way more of a threat to the future of humankind than the far-Right.
