Contrary to what we initially believed, left-wing agitators don’t even need the presidential race to be decided to begin their post-election rioting.
In NYC in particular there were numerous alternations where protesters assaulted police, leading to 57 people being charged. One of those arrested and charged briefly worked for Jerry Nadler in 2018-2019.
As the New York Post reported:
A cop-hating demonstrator was charged with spitting in an NYPD sergeant’s face during wild protests in Manhattan Wednesday night, police said.
Devina Singh, 24, was caught on video without a mask and screaming at the sergeant, “F— you, fascist!” before allegedly spitting at him.
Singh was charged with obstruction of governmental administration, violation of local law and harassment.
Singh and her comrades were among the mob of left-wing, anti-cop protesters who clashed with police in the West Village, lit garbage on fire and screamed at diners outdoors, cops said. Sixty people were arrested.
Singh was also busted on resisting arrest charges at a Big Apple protest in September and unlawful assembly during a protest in Brooklyn in October, police said.
When reached for comment, Singh told the Post that she only behaved the way she did because “cops were attacking people.” In her world, her fellow protesters chanting “Burn the precinct to the ground!” were on the side of peace, apparently, while the cops preventing violence amounts to “attacking people.” She also accused the cops of breaking her left arm, which there is no evidence for.
According to her Facebook profile, she worked for Congressman Jerry Nadler for five months from 2018-2019.
Nadler made headlines back in July for declaring the months-long riots in Portland, which led to intervention from the National Guard last night, a myth. Side note: weird how Oregon’s Democrat governor waited until the day after election day to finally deploy the National Guard, isn’t it?
Nadler’s office didn’t respond to the Post’s request for comment about his former intern Singh’s arrest, but perhaps he’ll eventually speak out to clarify that she was “mostly peaceful.”
