Remember the woman who gained national attention when she smiled through being pelted with eggs? The San Jose protest where eggs and fists were tossed at Trump supporters has just been pushed into the national spotlight again….for good reason. A lawsuit brought by the Trump supporters against the city of San Jose for not doing anything to protect them has moved forward! This lawsuit might force the hand of local governments in the future to help protect EVERYONE during public events like these.

THE FEDERAL LAWSUIT IN SAN JOSE WILL PUT THESE CITIES ON NOTICE TO PROTECT ALL CITIZENS
A judge has refused to toss out a federal lawsuit against the city of San Jose, California, in which the city police are accused of allowing an angry mob of left-wing agitators and violent protesters to target peaceful pro-Trump fans.
