Lisa Simon, a Philadelphia ANTIFA member, stabbed Sampson the State Trooper Horse at the "March Against Sharia" demonstration this past Saturday. Simon allegedly drove a nail into a flagpole with the intention to use as a weapon. The groups primary purpose is to protest against "fascists" and especially resist President Trump. This is another resist movement driven by and endorsed the Democrat Party.
Simon was arrested on numerous charges, including aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police animal, disorderly conduct, prohibited use of a weapon, and resisting arrest. During her peaceful counter-protest Simon stabbed the horse in the neck. The intention was to upset the horse causing chaos in the crowded area the Trooper and his horse were managing the crowd. The horse, being well-trained, continued his sortie and maintained his composure.
Failing to achieve Simon's objective, she attempted to obstruct the police from moving throughout the crowd. She was arraigned on Tuesday and faces a $100,000 bail. ANTIFA officially spoke on the matter and vehemently denied any wrong doing and stated that the police made up the incident. According to their facebook page leaders stated "A comrade was arrested while trying to demonstrate against an anti-Muslim rally in Harrisburg, PA. The charges are entirely fabricated and do not reflect what actually happened during the incident". The further stated Simon's charges were fabricated and that she is now a political prisoner.
The demonstration was to protest Sharia law in the United States. Sharia law is not the same thing as Islam. It is a system of justice that Muslims follow in some other countries. There are many contradictions between the United States law and Sharia law. The protest was against Sharia law and not Muslims. Sharia law permits "honor killings", beating and raping wives, among other things. That was the source of the protest.
Sampson is recovering and is still able to work.
Requests for comments were not immediately returned.
This is not the first time that ANTIFA has called for assaults against animals.
On June 21, 2016 Antifa posted an "instructable" on how to weaponize treats for pets. They give specific instructions on where Republicans tend to be in the largest numbers. The refer to conservatives as "enemies" and the intent is pretty clear; harm innocent pets that belong to conservatives
ANTIFA clearly has bad intentions and these acts of violence are not new. The lack of reporting by primary news sources is a telling sign.Channel : NetNewsJournalsNet News Journal America.sm NetNewsCatster: Nicholas Honeycutt
