High-profile white supremacist forced out of anti-war rally by Pittsburgh protesters - 2020-01-06
On Saturday, more than 200 people rallied in Schenley Plaza to oppose any escalated war efforts in the Middle East following the U.S. ordered killing of a high-ranking Iranian official. The Pittsburgh rally was organized by the ANSWER Coalition, an anti-war and civil rights group.
Across the street, a second smaller group of only five protesters were also rallying against a potential war. They could be heard chanting "no war with Iran," but their protest signs contained anti-Semitic depictions. One read "Deport Kushner" complete with Stars of David dripping in blood. (Jared Kushner, husband of Ivanka Trump and part of the Trump administration, is Jewish and an American-born U.S. Citizen.)
Eventually, two of the people who were rallying on the other side of Forbes Avenue walked over to Schenley Plaza. A speaker at the ANSWER Coalition rally then pointed out the two men and a large group of protesters began to demand they leave. Protesters shouted "Nazis Out, Nazis Out!" and started pushing them towards the intersection.
