By WND. A local conservative who ran against his city’s progressive mayor in last year’s primary, nevertheless, came to her defense when agitated Antifa vandals claiming to support black people mobilized outside her home, with one wielding a torch.
David Ross, who hosts “The David Ross Show” podcast, captured on video his confrontation last Friday night in Olympia, Washington, with militants in front of Mayor Cheryl Selby’s house chanting “Abolish the police.”
The irony, as WND reported, was that Selby was seen on video at a Black Lives Matter protest June 1 drawing cheers from a crowd as she kneeled before black-clad activists in the state’s capital city.

“You see the violent numbers continue to climb and nobody says anything,” said Dr. Holland. “You see the city burned, looted, riots, I’m not talking about peaceful protest, you’ve been down there, I’ve been down there, you see the damage, people have been killed during that and nobody even wants to walk through the damage to look at that.
