Watch Anti-Trump Activists Douse Reporters in the Face with White Powder: ‘Make America White Again!’

Reporters for The Daily Caller News Foundation were doused with white powder by protesters calling for the removal of a Confederate statue in downtown Washington, D.C., Friday evening.

“White flour! White flour! Make America white again!” a woman carrying a bag of what appeared to by flour said as she threw the white powder in protest. “Wife power! Wife power! Go wife power! Go wife power!” the woman chanted.

The protesters had gathered under a statue of Albert Pike, an American lawyer and prominent Free Mason who also served as a brigadier general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The statue of Pike is the only outdoor statue dedicated to a Confederate soldier in the nation’s capitol.

A national debate over the presence of Confederate monuments on public land has reached a fever pitch after the events in Charlottesville Aug. 12.

The group of radical leftists made TheDCNF reporters the main focus of this protest, screaming in their faces, calling them Nazis, white supremacists, racists, and bigots, while the reporters were on the scene to cover their demonstration.

Protesters attempted to shove TheDCNF reporters out of the area, but didn’t succeed. The radical leftists used umbrellas, posters, and flags to block the camera, while continuing to shove the two reporters away from the public space.

Photojournalist Alejandro Alvarez posted the following images to Twitter.

The protesters continued to heckle the reporters, chanting “Go home Nazis!” and demanding that the reporters leave the public space.

The protest ended early as it was met with rain and lightning.

    They need to be arrested. That’s assault. No tolerance for this bullshit behavior.

    These people have only one objective and that is to silence dissenting voices. They are hateful, spiteful and repugnant as human beings. Obama destroyed this country under his leadership.

    I think people need to understand that during this time period segregation was normal. They also don’t realize that here were many of the free slaves fought on the side of the south. Were they racist? While only God knows a mans heart as to whether or not he is a racist, based on Albert Pike’s writings he wrote favorably and had great admiration for people of all cultures and colors. Non-white cultures he admired included Egyptians, Israelites, Indians, (India), Japanese, Chinese, Africans and so forth. At the time, many Americans considered the indian an inferior human but not Pike. Based on that fact alone I would have my doubts as to him being racist. This information was gleened from an article posted by Hank Kraychir titled “Was Albert Pike a Racist? Is this claim Hyperbole or a sad Reality?” in July 2015. There is much more to the article that I feel should be explored with an open mind, again taking into consideration the era.
    Lastly, if you want to protest that’s what being an American is about. Free speech and the right to assemble. It does not give those that protest permission to throw water, flour or anything else at those who do not agree with you. It may also help if you know the facts.
