Antifa, the left-wing group of anti-fascist protesters, showed up outside Heather Heyer's memorial service in Charlottesville, Virginia, Wednesday, proving that they don't even have respect for a grieving family of a woman who died just four days ago.

The Hill reporter Taylor Lorenz tweeted out Wednesday a photo of people outside the theater where the memorial service was held. The protesters were holding purple shields and baseball bats. The Antifa protesters said they came out because the "police won't protect the people."

Lorenz tweeted that reporters who were in Charlottesville covering the memorial service later "swarmed" the protesters.

But inside, the memorial service for Heyer continued as photos of the deceased 32-year-old victim flashed on the screen.

In a heartbreaking speech to those at the service, Mark Heyer, Heyer's father, said "no father should have to do this."

He further urged those in the audience to just "forgive each other" and "just love one another."

"I think that's what the Lord would want us to do," Heyer's father said.

Heyer died Saturday after a white supremacist allegedly plowed a car over a group of counterprotesters in downtown Charlottesville.

The attack injured at least 19 other people.
