Video of a gang of white supremacists harassing a group of peaceful Black Lives Matter protestors in Philadelphia has gone viral.
The disturbing video, which has been viewed almost 700,000 times since Monday, shows roughly half a dozen angry white men, some of whom are holding baseball bats and billy clubs, approach the protestors.
“Pick one of us to f*ck up and we’ll go around and fight you one on one,” one of the men threatens. “Take that f*cking f*ggot energy and go somewhere else!”
While the man shouts the homophobic slur, another man rips a Black Lives Matter sign from a protestor’s hands, tearing it in half.

So far, the men in the video have not been identified, but condemnation for them was swift.
“We just want peace.” *swings baseball bat*

That guy just assaulted someone else and destroyed their property. He should be arrested.

None of these guys have been in a fight since the 3rd grade.

“We just want peace…” and we’ll get it by ripping your signs and threatening you with baseball bats…
