A former U.S. Marine was allegedly assaulted and spit on by an angry mob of pro-Palestine protesters during a Saturday rally in front of the White House. The war veteran, who was reportedly part of a pro-Israel counter-protest, quickly found himself greatly outnumbered and in potential danger — though he didn’t appear to be afraid at all.
Video taken of the incident begins immediately after one of the pro-Palestine protesters allegedly “touched” the U.S. Marine, identified as Manny Vega.
“Don’t f***ing touch me!” Vega says, pointing his finger in the man’s face. “Don’t touch me!”
When the unidentified protester shoves the Marine, things start to spiral out of control as other demonstrators jump in to oppose Vega. They are seen throwing punches, grabbing and later spitting on the military veteran, who was completely surrounded at times.
A brief chant of “Allahu akbar” can also be heard in the video.
Fortunately, the police arrived quickly and were able to prevent any further violence.
