Man in MAGA hat doused demonstrators with bear spray

A man sporting a ’Make America Great Again’ hat was arrested Saturday after he allegedly doused demonstrators with bear spray at an anti-Trump rally on Santa Monica Pier, California. David Nicholas Dempsey, 32, was being held Monday without bail pending his initial court appearance. Video footage showed Dempsey walking up to a man and spraying him directly in the face.

No idea what the real story is with this guy, but sure would love to see charges like "using a prohibited tear gas weapon and assaulting the crowd with a caustic chemical" being brought against the Antifa jagoffs in Portland.

Weird how only MAGA supporters [A] get media attention for this shit, and [B] groups like antifa don't, and are not charged for it.

I certainly don’t support violence but there has been increased hostility towards trump supporters from anti Trump protesters.

What caused him to spray the other person 🤔 Sounds like that would be an important consideration. Imagine man almost stabbed by opposition used bear spray to stop attacker.

Maybe he should have just brought the bear instead. 😏

Oh the horror, you never see the left spray people with any form of mace or pepper spray.

Reading the article, he claims that his opponents did it 🤔🤔🤔 I think further information is needed.

Go on YouTube and you can see the massive disparity between violence started by the left and violence started by trump supporters. The left, as ever, are past masters of using political violence

here is a fake headline that may seem plausible. "DQ supports antifa protest offering Concrete Milkshakes ahead of trump rally.

Hmmm... Only one link... Seems very apparent the OP jumped the gun on this one without providing sufficient sources or even bothering to include a summary. Now why would the OP do this? Could it be they have a confirmation bias?

The hero we need, the hero antifa deserves. FTA: 'A post by the Revolutionary Communist Party indicated that “at least 10 other people got directly pepper sprayed in the face.” One individual can be seen on camera being sprayed in the face by Mr Dempsey, as he is held on the ground by two other pro-Trump demonstrators.'

What a horrible article. I’m against violence from whatever side, but this was a “Orange Man Bad” article with inflammatory language. I can’t even tell what actually happened. This would not have passed my Journalism 101 classes.

Dude claims he didn't do it, but if you watch the video all you can see is a red hatted person spraying down an in-progress fight. where's the assault charges for the instigators?

Well, the left increasingly resembles a pack of wild animals lately, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

There are videos online. You can’t see what started the incident, but the guy definitely was spraying indiscriminately. I’ll wait for the full story (wouldn’t put it past Antifa to start the violence), but violence is not ok. Wish there was a zero tolerance no matter who is doing the violence.
