The tyrannical Democrats must go down hard in November. No rational American should support this party in anyway.

  • The president of the Fresno, California, city council was cited on three counts of misdemeanor battery on Tuesday after a confrontation with anti-lockdown protesters outside of his apartment.
  • Video shows members of a conservative group called Frontline America knocking on Miguel Arias’ front door to ask him about the city’s coronavirus response.
  • Another video shows Arias stepping out of his home, and swatting and pushing a couple of the men gathered outside his front door.
  • Arias claims the men tried to come inside his home, and that he acted in protection of his children.
  • California has issued a state-wide, stay-at-home order since March 19.

The president of the Fresno, California, city council was cited on three counts of battery on Tuesday after getting into a confrontation with anti-lockdown protesters who had gathered outside of his home.

The incident was caught on two videos recorded by members of the conservative group Frontline America, and obtained by local TV station KMPH.

It happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday, with one of the group’s leaders, Ben Bergquam, knocking on councilman Miguel Arias’ door while other members filmed behind him.

Bergquam is also a member of the Proud Boys, a far-right, men-only organization designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In the first video, Bergquam is seen trying to ask Arias a question, but before he can get it out, the city councilman is seen stepping out of his home and starting to swat at his camera.

“No. Get out. Do not come to my house,” Arias can be heard saying.

A second video shows Arias continuing to try and move the protesters off the stairs leading up to his apartment, at times swatting at and pushing Bergquam and another man.

All the while, Bergquam is heard accusing Arias of “ruining businesses.”
