Heavily armed Trump supporters faced off with equally armed Black Lives Matter, Antifa rioters in Louisville on Saturday after the two opposing groups took to the streets during the first ever Kentucky Derby without spectators.
Hundreds of right-wing activists dressed in combat gear and armed with semi-automatic weapons confronted members of the BLM, Antifa mob after they gathered downtown to rally against the police shooting of Breonna Taylor.
A number of social justice warriors had announced on social media their plans to demonstrate near Churchill Downs on Derby Day, one of the city’s biggest events of the year, in response to officials’ handling of the case.
Taylor, 26, was shot dead during a police raid in her apartment in March. The three officers involved in her death have not been charged.
Among the BLM rioters are The Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC). The NFAC leader John ‘Grandmaster Jay’ Johnson was criticized for screeching ‘burn it down,’ if the Black Lives Matter mob didn’t have their demands met.
Earlier this morning a group of about 200 pro-Trump and pro-police called ‘The Angry Vikings‘ assembled at Cox Park vowing to defend the city from BLM, Antifa terrorists.
