Antifa protester Berkeley Aug 2017 1A Massachusetts-based pro-family activist recently had a face-to-face encounter with an Antifa mob.

Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, recently attended a "Straight Pride" parade in Boston, which was intended to parody the annual "Gay Pride" parade held in the same city. But more than 1,000 police guards were called in from around the state to protect the parade participants from a vicious mob of "tolerant" liberals who came to violently disrupt the event.

Camenker says Antifa groups from all across New England were out in full force.

"They're just nuts," he reports. "They're just … completely crazy; I can't emphasize enough. These people believe stuff that is so wacked; it's so insane. I was right in the middle of it."

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)While Camenker was not harmed at the event, he discovered something else about the Antifa thugs.

"They believe that going and beating people up is a good thing -- that's what they believe. Now individually, one punch could take down about three of them. They're like a bunch of weaklings … who think they're these big fighters," Camenker details. "They're not a bunch of robust people; they just take advantage of the fact that they have bicycle chains and stuff like that. Now they were able to injure some police officers because they all ganged up on them, but they probably wouldn't make it in the Army."

He finds it hard to believe that an army of police should be necessary to guard a parade from a vicious and unhinged mob who screams about how tolerant they are.

According to local television news, 36 arrests were made at the parade.
