SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — A ‘Team Save America’ event organizer was punched in the face by a counter-protester, leaving him with broken teeth, during a conservative rally in downtown San Francisco, on Saturday. Around a dozen, conservatives attended the rally which was held behind police dressed in riot gear. Several hundred counter-protesters gathered chanting slogans against the event, while some threw food, bottles, and other objects at the speakers. The event was quickly canceled. The organizer, Philip Anderson, was punched after walking through the crowd of counter-protesters before the start of the rally. Counter-protesters also demonstrated in front of Twitter’s headquarters, where the ‘Team Save America’ organizers had also gathered to protest restrictions they feel are biased against US President Donald Trump and conservatives.
