During election night thousands of people, many of them dressed in black and with special protections, took to the streets in several cities leading violent demonstrations.
In Washington mainly, several journalists were attacked and reporter Elijah Schaffer, from BlazeTV, had to take refuge to avoid being injured and was later accompanied by The Blaze escorts, it reported.
“DC: Antifa have mobilized in very large numbers, and they are marching to an unknown location,” tweeted Schaffer.

Similar riots occurred in cities like Seattle and Los Angeles, and in some of them flags were burned while chanting insults.
Police arrested several of the rioters and ordered others to disperse after they attacked an officer and destroyed property.
Many of the commercial establishments were protected by the owners by covering them completely, in anticipation of the looting that has already taken place on numerous occasions.
Just the day before, the New York City police arrested the New York leader of the Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, Walter “Hawk” Newsome, along with 10 others, in a confrontation with the police.
The riots, far from being spontaneous and led by dissatisfied citizens, are part of a plan prepared months in advance by the leftist groups BLM and Shutdown DC.
In a video, now removed from YouTube, communist activist Lisa Fithian indoctrinates the group attending through a Zoom broadcast.
“We’re facing an administration and a potential coup and a potential insurrection. Is there going to be a war? Are people gonna die? Like is that on anybody else’s mind? I’m guessing it is,” Fithian harangued, according to Fox News.
These movements and their violent disturbances were reactivated after the death of African American George Floyd on May 25 in police custody, and given the development of the electoral campaign they were used for political purposes.
On the one hand, they are financed by multibillionaire George Soros, and on the other hand, they have the approval and welcome of the Democratic Party, which protects them by providing money to pay bail when they are arrested, and promotes the continuation of their abuses.
Moreover, for the Democratic candidate for vice president, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), violent riots are desirable and must continue even after the elections, in order to impose her communist agenda.
