During today’s “Defend the Bay” protests against the alt-right and Patriots Day demonstrations in Berkeley, Donald Trump supporters and detractors clashed in a big way. Some videos from the scene showed what could have easily been a fight club of sorts:

It appears that anti-fascists were on the scene.

Oakland Police have reportedly been dispatched to help the Berkeley PD.
This is hardly the first time a protest has turned into a violent confrontation. A Trump fan shot an anti-fascist at a Milo Yiannopoulos event a few months ago. Last year, one of Trump’s campaign rallies was shut down by protesters.
