Protesters target Boyle Heights cafe grand opening; Silver Lake road rage caught on video

Protest: Anti-gentrification activists protested during the grand opening of the Asher Caffe & Lounge, and the Boyle Heights Chamber of Commerce rescinded the owner’s membership over his alleged support of President Trump’s anti-immigrant policies. Boyle Heights Beat

Road Rage:  The driver of a Jeep rammed a Prius several times and pushed the vehicle on to the sidewalk during a case of road rage in Silver Lake that was captured on video. Apparently the Prius driver had gotten out of the vehicle to throw something at the Jeep. Investigators said the Friday morning incident at Sunset Boulevard and Parkman Avenue may qualify as a case of an assault with a deadly weapon. KTLA

  1. Asher Cafe protestors are just plain anti-Semites.

  2. BH is for la raza!

  3. The poor man is a US citizen and under freedom of speech he should be allowed to say what he wants. Lets get past this liberal nonsense of late. I’ve lived in this country for 80 years and it saddens me to see this great country being taken over by these idiots.
