A group of Republicans attending a vigil in Boston on September 24 were attacked by members of the ultra-progressive Democratic organization known as The Squad, just days after a North Dakota man confessed to murdering an 18-year-old because he was a Republican.
The Epoch Times received a video of the incident, which appeared to be unprovoked.
Donnie Palmer, the Republican candidate seeking to unseat the U.S., was one of the men attacked. Ayanna Pressley, a congresswoman and a member of The Squad
Pressley was hosting a sold-out event at the Somerville Theater with Congresswomen Cori Bush of Missouri, Alexandria Oscar-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib when several of their fans reportedly assaulted Palmer and other males there.
The footage shows one of the attackers, who was at least one of the males, bleeding out on the ground and being taken to the hospital.
The Epoch Times called Pressley’s office about the event many times, but no one answered.
Palmer expressed his fury that the killing of 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson, who was slain by 41-year-old Shannon Brandt last week, is not being discussed by the Democratic party or the liberal media.
Brandt acknowledged to murdering Ellingson, according to police records, after determining that Ellingson belonged to a “Republican extremist group.”
Brandt claimed to police he was worried the 18-year-old was going to come after him. Brandt then confessed getting in his car, looking for Ellingson, and then running him over.
When Dr. Ibram Kendi, the author of “How to Be an Antiracist,” was presenting The Squad event, there was violence directed against Palmer and the other victims.
Jim Lyons, the head of the Massachusetts Republican Party, was present at the earlier-in-the-day vigil for Ellingson. He expressed his displeasure at the perceived bias in the handling of Ellingson’s death to The Epoch Times.
Shortly after confessing to the murder of Ellingson, Brandt was granted bail.
