Antifa and BLM rioters swarmed the stage at a pro-police rally in Denver and attacked a number of conservatives — including columnist Michelle Malkin. The Denver police on the scene did not intervene at first, apparently under orders by police Chief Paul Pazen who marched with BLM protesters last month.
Malkin was part of a “Back the Blue” rally. It was a peaceful demonstration until rioting thugs showed up armed with weapons like a baton.
The attack was captured on video which you can watch below.

The Antifa thugs were armed with collapse baton:
@michellemalkin This is what Michelle dealt with today in Denver while at a #backtheblue rally. An antifa group came to cause premeditated violence and injuries. This antifa woman brandished a collapsible baton in front of Michelle. pic.twitter.com/wUZA76pldz

And the police did nothing:
Am I correct that the Denver PD just watched and let Antifa and BLM thugs waltz in and attack you?

The Denver Post reported:
Dueling rallies in downtown Denver devolved into chaos and some violence Sunday afternoon as protesters crashed a pro-police rally in Civic Center.
The anti-police protesters greatly outnumbered the pro-police crowd, and moved into their rally’s space in the park’s amphitheater shortly after the demonstration supporting law enforcement started around 3 p.m.
The protesters banged drums, blew whistles, clanged pots, clapped and shouted obscenities to drown out the pro-police rally, where a band had been playing music to a small crowd. The chaotic clash between groups led to some violence, with several people throwing punches in isolated disputes. Law enforcement officers attempted to form a line around the two groups, but could not completely separate them After about an hour, most of the pro-police demonstrators left the plaza, and police also began to retreat. The anti-police protesters followed officers as they retreated and at least one officer fired pepper spray into the crowd of protesters. It was not immediately clear what prompted the use of the spray..
Michell Malkin complained about the attack and mentioned Colorado Governor Jared Polis (D) and Chief Pazen in her tweet, she also put out an SOS to President Trump, “So @jaredpolis @DenverPolice Chief Pazen, are you ok with pro-police patriots being swarmed, targeted and assaulted in a clearly orchestrated attack??? I caught it all on video and recorded the faces of the brutal animals. Please @realDonaldTrump – we need LAW & ORDER!!! S.O.S!”
