A disturbing viral video has emerged online showing the moment a gang of angry Proud Boys and Trump supporters surrounded and then savagely attacked a non-combative couple as they attempted to flee to safety in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night.
“Proud boys ruthlessly breathing a non-combative couple at a ‘Stop the Steal’ playdate in Washington DC.,” wrote the Twitter user who shared the video early Sunday morning.

Donald Trump’s Proud boys got the message loud and clear.
“The fight has just begun.”
Here is a video of them chasing and beating a couple.

The video shows a group wearing Proud Boys and Pro-Trump shirts surrounding the couple, yelling obscenities at them as some are seen punching and throwing them to the ground. At one point, the female victim is seen being pulled by her hair to the pavement.
The man filming the attack is heard comforting the couple near the end of the video and instructing them to “Stay with me” as they flee from the angry mob.
“Don’t come back here!” someone yells to the couple as they make their escape.
Marianne Williamson, who made an unsuccessful bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, compared the attack to Hitler’s Storm Troopers.
“Tonight in DC. …Tell me how this is not like Berlin in 1935. Really. Somebody tell me,” she tweeted.
General Michael Hayden, a retired four-star US Air Force general, agreed with Williamson, tweeting: “That is exactly right!”

Members of the far-right male-chauvinist, hate group were also caught on video vandalizing buildings and setting fires to “Black Lives Matter” banners on the streets of DC.

Another video shows a mob of Trump supporters terrorizing unsuspecting motorists caught up in the late-night mayhem.
It’s a fascist street gang, roaming the nation’s capital and harassing people just trying to live their lives. https://t.co/cpLxY2V5CL

Police say at least four people were stabbed and nearly two dozen were arrested on Saturday night after thousands of aggrieved Trump supporters took to the streets of the nation’s capital to rage against President Donald Trump’s loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
According to The Washington Post, the stabbings occurred near Harry’s Bar at 11th and F streets NW, where the neo-fascist Proud Boys had assembled.
