A viral video from Thursday night shows a violent mob attacking a Marine veteran who was wearing a Trump shirt near President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The video begins with an enraged man shouting at Los Angeles-based journalist Elijah Schaffer, who showed up with singer Joy Villa and the veteran, wearing pro-Trump attire. The man, shouting at Schaffer, repeats the phrase "I can say nigger if I want to," before Schaffer tells the man to "get out of my face."
Then, a scuffle breaks out between an Asian man and an individual referred to as a Marine veteran, reports Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson.
The anti-Trump agitator throws the first punch at the veteran and then the man involved in the first confrontation physically assaults the veteran and Schaffer.
Other anti-Trump agitators join in the fight before one of them launches a kick at a man filming the scenes on a large camera.
A group of teenagers then break out in a chant of “fuck Donald Trump” as Schaffer and the veteran, who ably defended themselves against the mob, leave the area. -Infowars
Schaffer tweeted "We stood our ground," however he says his $3,000 camera was stolen.
So now wearing a Trump jersey with @Joy_Villa is enough to get your crew beaten up in Los Angeles. Jk. We stood our ground. They stole our $3000 camera. PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org or Venmo @elijah-Schaffer PLEASE. Need to replace it to film. pic.twitter.com/dZYUmHE8Xu— Elijah Schaffer (@ElijahSchaffer) July 27, 2018
Villa weighed in over Twitter following the incident, tweeting "Our Marine Veteran was attacked. They stole Elijah’s $3000 camera. THIS is what @repmaxinewaters call to violence brought here in LA"

Earlier in the week, Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star was destroyed by a man with a pickaxe.
The more this kind of thing happens, the higher Trump's approval rating goes. Carry on, idiots. 👏😄 pic.twitter.com/ki0rVwQvgd— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) July 25, 2018
