So there was a police line preventing our forces, anti-racist, from pushing back on the fascists.
One of the people who came with us today was knocked on the ground, they kicked him repeatedly, and some people were stabbed, in fact.” RT also spoke to a representative of the Traditionalist Worker’s Party, which has been accused of having initiated violence in Sacramento, to hear their side of the story.
The group was listed as one of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s ‘Advanced White Supremacy’ hate groups, active in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.
