WAUWATOSA, WI- During a rally in Wauwatosa, pro-Trump demonstrators were confronted by violent Democrat counter-protesters. One particularly violent counter-protester went as far as striking multiple rally attendees with their car.
On Friday, supporters of President Trump gathered on sidewalks near a four way intersection to protest the stealing of the presidential election. The “Stop the Steal” rally comes after months of blatant election fraud and cheating by Democrats.
You all should have been there! Easily a couple of thousand at MAGA protest in Tosa. #ProudBoys held the perimeter. One a-hole drove his car into our people—drone footage captured it. (Enjoy the orange jumpsuit, jackass. ) Next time—MADISON. @SheriffClarke pic.twitter.com/1lUf39qUyu

As demonstrators peacefully gathered in support of the president, enraged liberals tried to stop the rally.
Many counter-protesters resorted to extreme acts of violence to shut down their opposition. In an aerial view video, one anti-Trump driver is seen swerving off the road into a crowd of pro-Trump rally attendees. The car, then, makes a quick exit by hazardously turning back on to the road and speeding away.
The video, which was posted to YouTube, offers a recount of the near attempted murder:
“A man in the red car stopped at the stoplight for the eastbound turn onto Mayfair Rd. I was standing 5 feet from him on the corner of the turn. He refused to move and was verbally mixing it up with the protesters. He blocked the eastbound turn traffic for about 7-10 minutes.”
The description continued:
“That is when 3 or 4 MAGA protesters started to push on his car. Almost immediately he accelerated quickly and wildly into the turn—and creamed one of the MAGA protesters on Mayfair Rd .”
Later, the attendee states that the video was also turned over local authorities.
One witness to the vehicular assault told Gateway Pundit:
“I was at the Wauwatosa protest today and a man was purposely hit by a car while standing next to me. Proud Boys promptly administered first aid until an ambulance arrived. Proud Boys did an excellent job of keeping the peace.”
Another witness claimed that the driver was seen arguing with multiple different Trump supporters in different areas of the intersection:
“…he was basically telling us to ‘go f-ck ourselves’ and trashing Trump. We initially saw him on the other side of the street, he was talking to people over there — probably saying the same things. He was impeding traffic over there, so he pulled up, did a U-turn so he was going East on North Avenue, and turned South on to the road where we were.”
The witness also said:
“He was in the turn lane saying all the same stuff, and finally a bunch of people came up to his car. He took off into the crowd, he overturned into the crowd, and sped down Mayfair Road.”
This witness also told Gateway Pundit that two of the demonstrators who were hit by the crazed man’s vehicle refused medical attention. Another man in the crowd suffered more severe injuries. At this time, it is unclear if the driver has been apprehended by local police.
Proud Boys Chairman, Enrique Tarrio, also gave a statement confirmed eye witness accounts. The chairman affirmed that “somebody was hit by a car on purpose. He tried to hit more people than just the one he did.”
Tarrio also stated:
“Proud Boys are far from perfect but one thing you can always expect from us is that we will always do what we feel is right. Extremely Proud of our Wisconsin chapter. They are the reason America is great,”
But, for all the good that was done by pro-Trump attendees, there seems to be even more harm done by violent liberals.
In another video, a masked and hooded man is seen pushing down an elderly woman before getting into a heated argument with another attendee.

Then, the same counter-protester was caught on video at the rally attempting to injure even more Trump supporters. The man walked toward a demonstrator and immediately began throwing punches.

Thankfully, the video poster reports that this aggravator was promptly arrested for the attacks.

WAUWATOSA, WI – A shooting inside of a Wisconsin mall on November 20th reportedly injured eight people, but no fatalities have been reported.
Police say they’re still searching for a man suspected in a shooting at the Mayfair Mall in Wisconsin that injured eight people. https://t.co/XGN5GgUbbA

With the suspect still at-large, authorities haven’t detailed much other than the preliminary details of the aftermath and a physical description of the suspect.
However, officials did note that this shooting wasn’t a “random act” of indiscriminate violence, but something that seems to have stemmed from “an altercation”.
Here is what we know so far.
Wauwatosa Police say the shooting incident occurred just before 3:00 p.m. on November 20th at the Mayfair Mall. Authorities were said to have received several 911 calls around said time about the shooting.
Yet, the suspect has yet to have been apprehended or even identified at this point.
A statement from the Wauwatosa Police Department noted the following about the ongoing investigation:
“Investigators are working tirelessly to identify and apprehend the suspect from [the Nov. 20th] shooting at Mayfair Mall.”
Chief Barry Weber from the department hasn’t afforded much of a motive in the case specifically. Reports say that eight people were injured, with a teenage victim among those hurt during the shooting.
A physical description of the suspect afforded by Chief Weber was as follows:
“Preliminary statements from witnesses indicate that the shooter is a white male in his 20s or 30s.”
In a statement released by Mayor Dennis McBride, police sources have informed him that the only inclination of a motive divulged was that some sort of altercation transpired between the suspect and a person or persons:
“Preliminary investigation by the Wauwatosa Police Department (WPD) indicates that the shooting was the result of an altercation and not a random act. WPD investigators, with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are continuing to interview victims and witnesses to identify and apprehend the suspect.”
According to Mayor McBride, “Mayfair has a strict no-gun policy,” and noted that “if the shooter had complied” with the policy, then the incident wouldn’t have happened.
Obviously, it seems as though policies of said nature aren’t exactly the greatest deterrent for those that wantonly flout them.
“I’m furious about this incident. Like why would you put people at risk, you’ve got kids, toddlers, little babies that don’t deserve this.” https://t.co/hO6K5IENgE

Mall employees that were present at the time of the shooting described the incident that occurred. Chris Riley, one of the business owners from the Mayfair Mall, said he’d heard roughly 14 or 15 gunshots ring out:
“Upon hearing the shots, I had my four-year-old in the store, I put her, I locked her in there. I made my way out of there. There was a crowd of people just running out. I tried to bring as many of them as I can, to bring them into my store for cover. And within the next 5 to 10 minutes there was police coming in.”
One unnamed witness said the gunfire had initially broken out inside of the Macy’s store in the mall, and then progressed from there:
“A guy apparently walked into Macy’s and just started opening fire on people, and as he walked out into the mall area, he started shooting at everybody.”
Investigators are working tirelessly to identify and apprehend the suspect from yesterday’s shooting at Mayfair Mall. We ask that any witnesses to the incident please contact the Wauwatosa Police Department at 414-471-8430.

Jill Wooley, who was shopping inside of the mall at the time when the shooting started, noted how she and her mother sought cover once the gunfire broke out:
“We made it to a safe place… right around the corner from where we were standing there was a stairwell, like an employee stairwell, and we just went straight down as far as we could go. I had my mom hide in the corner, and I looked around for where we could go next if we needed to.”
This is an ongoing investigation.
