WATCH: DC Police Quickly Put Antifa in Check!

On Saturday, protesters and counter protesters clashed in DC during the “Demand Free Speech” rally, leading to swift police action.

The violent left-wing protest group Antifa was present, and fought with officers and conservatives attending the event.

One incident that was captured on video shows Antifa members attempt to storm past police barricades to attack their intended targets, however, one officer sends a protester flying backwards while sending a message to the rest of the group.

Social media commentary overwhelmingly sided with the DC Police, who were praised for their swift action and response to the chaos.

Commenters compared the handling of Antifa in DC to the handling of the group in Portland, Oregon, noting a marked difference.
