Conservative activist and entrepreneur Michelle Malkin was attacked when Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists stormed a pro-police.
On Sunday during a “Back the Blue” rally in support of police at the Denver Civic Center amphitheater. Initially, Denver police did not respond immediately under the guidance of their police Chief Paul Pazen who recently marched with BLM protesters.
Malkin says she wasn’t hurt went Antifa rushed the stage, however, she was roughed up and one member of the group that rushed the stage pulled out an expandable baton.

After the chaos, Malkin posted, “I’m ok. America is not.”
Most of what happened was captured by video and posted by Malkin who also sent 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! https://t.co/sQYQyN8Rwz

A three-hour rally was planned at the Greek Amphitheater by Ron MacLachlan who told the news channel, “We’ve got to stand with our men and women in law enforcement. Without them, we are in chaos and anarchy.”
“There’s graffiti everywhere, they’re tearing down stuff and burning places down,” said Michael Rusher, a pro-police supporter. “The mayors need to give the police the support they need. The governors need to give police the support and we need to back Donald Trump.”
The Denver Post reported that after an hour of chaos most pro-police demonstrators left the plaza and police began to leave the area as well. Then BLM activists began to follow officers who used pepper spray and fired pepper balls to disperse the crowd.
According to the post, Police Chief Paul Pazen had requested the pro-police group to not hold the rally.
