    White antifa activists accused of harassing black conservatives at Denver MLK Day parade

    White antifa activists accused of harassing black conservatives at Denver MLK Day parade
    Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives attract masked leftist protesters

    For the ninth year in a row, the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives marched in the Martin Luther King Jr. parade in Denver, only this time, they were followed.

    Eight to 10 masked antifa activists — all of them white — shadowed the marchers, walking in step with them for the entirety of the 3.1-mile route, and eventually drawing a police escort, said RMBC executive director Derrick Wilburn, who posted a photo of the leftist protesters on Facebook.

    Mr. Wilburn said the activists’ intent was to harass the group of 40 to 50 conservatives, who included members of the Denver Republican Party and supporters of Casper Stockham, a black Republican seeking the party nomination to run against Democratic Rep. Jason Crow.

    “Obviously they planned this in advance,” said Mr. Wilburn. “They clearly just wanted to irritate, agitate, so they walked alongside us, in front of us, behind us, with their stupid little bandanas on. I don’t know how the Denver PD got tipped off, but they were right there, walking right alongside them as they walked alongside us.”

    It was the first time the black conservatives had been targeted by antifa “punks,” he said, “but then again, antifa wasn’t really a thing until the last couple of years.”

    “We just wanted to be there for the reason everyone else was there, to celebrate Dr. King and remember everything he’s done for our country,” Mr. Wilburn said. “But these knuckleheads, they can’t stand that, so there they were.”

    If the antifa, short for “anti-fascists,” saw any irony with the specter of whites carrying “Black Lives Matter” signs while intimidating blacks during an MLK event, they didn’t show it, he said.

    “They’re a bunch of white kids, and here they are harassing the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, who are marching in a parade to honor Martin Luther King,” said Mr. Wilburn, former vice chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. “They don’t get it. They can’t see the hypocrisy of their own position.”

    The 35th annual “Marade,” one of the largest MLK holiday parades in the nation, typically draws between 50,000 to 75,000 participants and onlookers. This year’s crowd included Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Gov. Jared Polis and former Gov. John Hickenlooper.

    Mr. Wilburn said the antifa activists stuck with the cohort of white and black conservatives and left alone the predominantly white progressive groups participating in the event.

    “We should be just as able to walk in a parade, harassment-free, as the Greenpeace people or any other leftist group should,” said Mr. Wilburn. “They were clearly there to harass us. It wasn’t like it was any big secret. Any fool could have figured out what they were doing. We didn’t care.”

    I wish ANTIFA would go away already. They're not anti-fascists. They're just more white people who think they know what's best for black people.

    Why in the world are they allowed to wear masks at a demonstration?

    Really, why wear them on the street outside of Halloween and Mardi Gras? It's intimidating in our culture since masks are mostly worn by criminals.
