A Black Lives Matter protest of around 80 people in a tiny Ohio town which is home to just 13 black residents was overrun by 700 white counterprotesters armed with rifles, handguns and baseball bats at the weekend.

Heavily armed white men and women from motorcycle gangs and ‘back the blue’ groups flocked to the small town of Bethel on Sunday shouting ‘Blue lives matter!’ and ‘All lives matter!’

They faced off with the small group of village residents who had been demonstrating peacefully calling for an end to systemic racism and police brutality across America.

Shocking video footage showed a BLM protester being surrounded and violently punched in the back of the head by a counterprotester in front of two cops who stood by and did nothing.

Clashes between the two groups persisted for a second day Monday, leading the police chief to declare a curfew for the population of just 2,828 and several people were arrested.

Sunday’s demonstration was planned by Bethel’s Solidarity with Black Lives group as a peaceful affair and was expected to draw in around 25 people, showing solidarity with the movement to end racial inequality.

However, it amassed to around 800 people as 80 protesters found themselves confronted by around 700 members of motorcycle groups, Back the Blue organizations and Second Amendment advocates.

The counterprotesters – many of whom are believed to have come from out of town – were pictured with rifles, bats and clubs slung over their shoulders while some wore Donald Trump t-shirts.

    Oh … notice it’s in 90 + % white towns. Hmmm.

    Confederacy 2 makes EVERY town like this.

    Why don’t we hear about Confederacy 2 from any supposed “watchmen?” 🙂
