Blaze News original: 19 nauseating times cowardly thugs ganged up on — and savagely beat up — lone victims

Garden-variety leftists and everyday crooks have discovered that they can strut around in packs and gang up on anybody they want.

Left-wing violence seemed to spike along with mindless outrage after Donald Trump's election as president in 2016, and leading the way was Antifa — self-appointed social justice warriors hell bent on making others' lives a living hell on the streets if their leftist causes aren't obeyed.

Antifa's "uniform" always has been comically consistent: masks and often dark glasses and goggles to disguise their identities, along with dark clothing and boots. Armed with sticks, bats, and hammers, the marauding leftists gather in packs and are ready to fight and primed to destroy. Oh, and the more of them there are, the more courageous they get. Funny how that works.

There are few things more stomach-turning than the sight of large groups of thugs getting violent with lone victims — because all of us know deep down that if you get almost any of them one on one and away from the safety of their pack, their tunes would quickly change.

The height of their bravery happens when they encounter lone individuals who haven't a prayer of escaping unscathed. Blaze News readers won't soon forget what Antifa did to conservative journalist Andy Ngo in 2019. Content warning: language:

But it hasn't been just Antifa. During the Black Lives Matter summer of 2020, a bunch of stunning and brave leftists got themselves in large groups and tried out straight-up intimidation against outnumbered victims. Videos showing them harassing outdoor restaurant patrons who refuse to raise their fists in George Floyd solidarity are painful and embarrassing to watch four years later:

Their tactics and cruel bravado seemed to catch on. Sadly, it would seem your garden-variety leftists and everyday crooks discovered that they, too, can strut around in packs and gang up on anybody they want.

There are few things more stomach-turning than the sight of large groups of thugs getting violent with lone victims — because all of us know deep down that if you get almost any of them one on one and away from the safety of their pack, their tunes would quickly change.

Here are 19 of those nauseating moments:

The victim in the June 14, 2020, attack in Klein, Texas, was waiting to buy some items when a group tried to cut in line, KTRK-TV reported. "I looked over and said, 'There's a line for a reason,'" the victim recounted to the station. After he paid and left, the group met him in the parking lot and took turns kicking and punching him, the station said. The victim told KTRK he just took the beating; video of the attack shows he didn't fight back or protect himself. The victim added that one attacker told him, "Black Lives Matter, [expletive]," as he kicked him in the face.

He's simply traveling somewhere, and then he gets attacked, and it's heartbreaking for us to know that it's not safe for our 82-year-old father to be out by himself.
