Conservative activists Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were mobbed, heckled, and harassed by protesters at a Philadelphia coffee shop Monday morning.
Kirk, founder of Turning Point, and Owens, the group’s communications director, were trying to eat breakfast at the Green Eggs Café near Center City, when a group gathered outside and began to aggressively harass the pair, Fox News reported.
Owens posted video of the chaotic scene — including one man pouring a drink on Kirk.
“They are currently following us through Philly,” tweeted Owens, who is black. “ALL BLACK AND HISPANIC police force protecting us as they scream “f*ck the racist police.”
In the video, protesters also are seen chanting “no more white supremacy” at Kirk and Owens while others blow whistles and yell into a megaphone.
Meanwhile, police are shown shielding the pair and escorting them away.
“To be clear, ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force. Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast,” Owens wrote in a separate tweet and video.
She later thanks the Philadelphia police “for keeping us safe today.”
Kirk angrily dismissed the protesters.
If a angry conservative mob formed while two young liberals, one white guy and a black woman, were eating breakfast, and the mob hurled horrific insults, threw objects and assaulted them, the left would call it a “hate crime” and every major outlet would be demanding condemnation
