Pro-Hamas Protesters Attack Marine in Front of White House

The situation outside the White House mirrors the situation inside it.

On Saturday, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House. A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags.

This is where the video begins recording. He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on.

Manny Vega had participated in the takedown of memorial barricades during Obama’s shutdown.

Manny Vega, an undeterred retired U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran, spoke to Breitbart News about the incident.
“What brought me out here is this sort of anti-Israel atmosphere that this administration is holding over the United States,” Vega told Breitbart News. “I want to show the Israeli people there are American people in our nation that support the state of Israel… And that is why am standing here with an American flag on my right hand, and Israeli flag on my left hand, in a show of solidarity with the Israeli people.”

“Israelis love life; they can coexist with other nations and they have since 1948. Israel has extended a hand to shake, but they shake it and go back to fight,” Vega reportedly told the protestor.

When asked if he was concerned about the protestors turning violent, Vega said:

“I have no fear, Vega said. “I’m not going to get stabbed, or lit on fire, but they tried to light my flag on fire.”

“Hey, I’m not going to be pushed out of here… If I was in Palestine, my throat my throat would be slit, but I’m in front of the White House. This is America, and I have every right to be here with the American flag, and the Israeli flag as a counter protest to the ‘Free Gaza, Anti-Occupation’ protest here. And pro-Hamas.”

        To destroy it from within, with the full cooperation and complicity of Obama and Holder and the protection of our own Constitution and laws–the very ones they’re seeking to undermine and destroy. With no small success so far, as we’re seeing.

      This won’t happen in my town…and even if it did, it wouldn’t last very long before they were outnumbered and forced to leave.

      • saint thomss

        wrong. It’s already happening, and NO ONE is doing anything. muslims are violent murderers, and everyone else is not. they will win. you will lose. because you don’t fight fire with fire.

      I live in a VERY conservative, VERY Republican, small town in eastern Washington State and these A-holes had a Pro-Palestinian rally in front of our Federal Building yesterday.

  • insomniacattack

    I was at the rally, I saw this Manny Vega, and he was looking for a confrontation. I watch a Palestinian-American man walk away from an argument with him and a female friend and the two of them pursued the Palestinian-American man and pinned him against a wall so he couldn’t walk away again. Then they started to nudge his shoulders. They were trying to get him to fight back. Looks like he was doing this all day. Notice, in the video, how he says he doesn’t know who started it. Well, in the confrontation I saw, he was clearly the one who started it.

    • American Patriot

      Sure you were at the rally, fool. Some Islamist friends must told you that the veteran started the fight so that the pro-Hamas protester would get sympathy from the people. Also, there is no such thing as a “Palestinian” nationality, fool. Quit supporting Islamists and their sympathizers.

    • cutie pie

        Go easy on insomniacattack, he was a child soldier. He might have PTSD and he might get violent and you might regret it.

        • Drakken

          I could give a rat’s azz what that muzzy inbred POS has to say, time to get these inbred savages out of the west, period and by any and all means necessary.

          • Pete

            This person is from Connecticutt. they were JROTC. They think that makes you a child soldier. They like Truthout.

            Seriously dude, you show know me better. My comment was dripping with sarcasm. :/

    • Pete

      So you were there without a cellphone? Nobody had a cellphone to film the Palestinian man being pinned?

      I find that hard to believe.

      If it was as you say it would be good propaganda (& true in this case) for your side. I cannot see your side not filming this incident and giving to the press.

      So I call BS.

      Try again harder troll!

    • Erudite Mavin

      If the former Marine stood without moving in his support for Israel, you would still have something to say attempting to attack him.

      Your previous posts are against Israel and in particular against Netanyahu,
      and in support of those attacking Israel.

  • Habbgun

    I noticed the Leftists were calling him a baby killer just because he had served. Then again so does the occupant in the White House. Or maybe that should be the Occupier in the White House.

  • Ah’Nukem Jihadi

    Why is this guy on his own against the mob?

    • Michael

      I think Americans don’t care enough to really get too deeply involved. They are too busy with hedonistic pursuits. I was alone against a mob in Detroit a couple of weeks ago myself. Like Mr Vega I am an ex Marine as well. Unlike Mr Vega I had no friendly cameraman to record what happened. Watching this video brings back ugly memories. It is not all that fun to be completely alone, cut off, and surrounded by a pack of snarling hyenas. Unlike Mr Vega I was genuinely afraid, but I held my nerve under fire. Maybe I am suicidal, but I refuse to remain silent in the face of evil and I wanted them to know that there are Americans that know the facts. Besides, I was taught that what we do when we are afraid defines how courageous we are.

      I was threatened with violence, I was cursed at, a group of teenagers threw gum and garbage at me, flag wavers blocked my vision with their flags whenever I tried to have a conversation, women cursed in front of their children at me, I was followed around by a group of tormentors everywhere I went at the event, one rather large man took it upon himself to become my own personal human shield interposing himself between me and anyone trying to have a conversation with me, another animatedly angry man kept wanting to go around the corner for a private talk – he kept after me relentlessly blowing smoke in my face until finally he said he was going to cut me to pieces when I refused all of his offers, they photoed me saying they wouldn’t forget when they caught me on the street, and more.

      • Drakken

        You won’t be alone for long Brother. The day is coming where these goat fu*kers will be fleeing for their lives and there will be no mercy nor quarter.
        Semper Fi !

      For those who don’t know what your antisemitic slime means,
      Zionist Occupied Government.
      I see you are still mourning the fact that Hitler lost.
      Also more of your stupidity shows , Marines are not soldiers but Marines.
      Here in San Diego, there are 10s of thousands of Marines based at Camp Pendleton, Marine Air Base Marimar, and Marine Corp Recruit Depot.
      You would not have the balls to make your comment to the face of a Marine.

    • Drakken

      Please! By all means, say that to any Marine and let’s see how that works out for you. Dumbazz!

    • notme123

      …..to the shores of Tripoli, the Marines have been fighting the Muslim scum for centuries…

  • blahblahgrama

    Islam is the SPIRIT OF VIOLENCE. Did you know Hamas means violence in arabic? I don’t care what they do… it ends up violently. They are not happy unless they are killing or destroying. They do not have the blessing. Is that not so evident in their lives. All the factions of Islam read the same book and receive that spirit of the book. They say allah is the ‘Greatest of all Deceivers’. They are all deceived and will NOT inherit the kingdom of God, but will eternally be lost. Jesus said to pray for your enemies. Maybe they will yet come out of the darkness into light and life through His name. It is possible.

  • garyfouse

    These animals can’t control themselves. Yesterday in LA we had a similar mob. Here is video of what they did in LA.

    http://garyfouse.blogspot.com/2014/08/video-of-sundays-pro-palestinian-protest.html

    Immediately before this, we had a protest by Arab Christians on behalf of their persecuted brethren in the ME. They were peaceful, orderly and civilized. Then came the mob of pro-Hamas supporters.

    • Habbgun

      Peaceful, orderly and civilized. Not the way to get the media on your side. Shouldn’t you be burning a civilian instead?

  • jschiraldi@gmail.com

    This is the face of the Democratic Party. Hamas terrorist supporters and millions of illegal foreign nationals.

      Elsewhere Sunday morning: Man had his throat slit a few blocks from local Queens mosques.

      The assailant stabbed Carreno twice in the lower back, once on the right shoulder and again in the left hip. He also suffered a cut across his neck and a slash from his left ear down to his mouth, police said. Cops found Carreno lying unconscious on the corner of 97 St. and Northern Blvd. in Elmhurst.

  • steve b

    I’M SURE OBAMA SENT THE PALACE GUARD OUT TO PROTECT THE HAMAS SUPPORTERS FROM THAT TERRIBLE MARINE.

    The is one brave Marine!! Kudo’s to you sir, knowing what Freedom is all about!!

  • Holden McRoin

    That didn’t really look so bad. A few angry guys shoved one another.
    Big deal.

    • Ganesha_akbar

      ^Rubbish. Video clearly shows US Marine spat upon at 0:53s and struck in the face at 0:54s… felonious batteries. Only reason it did not further escalate was otherwise negligent police response. This is not free speech– it’s terrorism advocacy. Battery on Marine Vega was thuggery. Each of these felons should be rounded up and prosecuted.

      It’s a felony for Americans to provide “material support” of any kind (be it in the form of cash, weaponry, training, personnel, services, or “expert advice or assistance”) to a foreign terrorist organization, even if that support is for (ostensibly) peaceful purposes. Supporting Hamas allows Hamas to use money elsewhere and allows Hamas to not have to use media propaganda funds for its terrorist activities.

      Congressional hearings must refocus their impeachment spotlight on “material support” advocates in the Administration– starting with Secretary Kerry and his co-conspirator Obama.

  • notme123

    and where is the msm coverage of this disgrace to the US. the patriot is admonished while the terrorist animals are let go.

    When 10,000 vets show up at these terrorist supporting events, then we will show them what the meaning of to defend this nation against all enemies both foreign and domestic is.

    Right on Mr. Vega,let the truth be told. Gaza does not want real peace, if it did this would have been settled along time ago.

    There can be NO peace with islam… As long as WE continue to be who WE are – Athiests, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddists, Wiccans, Agnostics, Jehovah’s Witness’ and all the others that make America who WE are. PERIOD!

    Islam is humanities greatest disease… When will we wake up and eradicate it?

    Anyone who supports Hamas should be sprayed with pigs blood and then shot in the face. Their bodies can be used to heat a homeless shelter.

    • Linda Garcia

      Very true!!!

  • Patty Cullinane

    To all Human Beings…Anti-Semitic rhetoric/behavior/violence disguised as “humanitarian protests” against Israeli policies in Gaza cannot be tolerated. Anti-Semitic behaviour/violence, for any reason, cannot be tolerated. Like those before us; those of us who see it, and say nothing, are as complicit as those committing acts of Anti-Semitism. Speak out against Anti-Semitism. Where you encounter it, be courageous enough to stop it. Do not let fear, or the “popular opinion” of a majority, keep you from denouncing this insidiousness. Do not let yourselves be infected by the sickness of mob mentality. Do not let propaganda, by those amongst us who profit from the instability of the world, influence you to commit acts of violence, in word or deed…against ANYONE. Stop Anti-Semitism, now. Stop violence, now. It starts with two words…Never Again.

  • wake up people, read yo bible

    I bet none of those protesters are legal Americans. Why didnt any Hamas soldiers get killed. Are the people of Gaza that stupid that they cant see that Hamas dont give a dam about them. How can you want Isreal and others to care about those dead citizens if their own nation dont care about them. If I was Isreal I wouldnt open my border to those evil savages either

    From the age of 18 every Israeli male and female is required to serve three and two years, respectively, of compulsory military service.
