Seattle, Liberty or Death 2 Rally, December 1, 2018, Counter Protester With Amplified Bullhorn

As seems standard fare at political rallies and protests these days, among the people who counter protested the "Liberty or Death 2" rally held on December 1, 2018 in Seattle by the Washington Three Percent, was a counter protester with an amplified bullhorn. The amplified bullhorn wielding counter protester used it for multiple purposes. Sometimes the bullhorn wielding counter protester used it to shout political slogans. Sometimes the bullhorn wielding counter protester used her bullhorn to shout defiance at media, including photojournalists from Studio 2.8 and also Andy Ngo, who came from Portland, OR, to cover the event. The bullhorn wielding counter protester was also among a cadre of counter protesters who formed an illegal, sidewalk blocking, barricade around their group. The counter protesters only allowed known associates of the Marxist/Socialist/Communist counter protest groups past their armed barricade, and entry in the area they controlled. Curiously, the Seattle Police Department didn't break up the illegal sidewalk barricade created by the counter-protesters. The illegal barricade also included armed members of the "Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club", who openly carried loaded rifles.
