Opposing views and beliefs has much of this country in a heated feud. With Donald Trump being recently inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America, citizens have been going to war with one another with their polar points of view.

On Wednesday, Milo Yiannopoulos, a strong right-wing social figure, was scheduled to speak at UC Berkeley. However, protests that grew into violence between members of opposing sides broke out causing Yiannopoulos’ speech to be canceled.

In the midst of the violence being carried out in the area, Jake Shields was present and apparently helped a man from being severely beaten.

Shields tweeted, “I was in Berkeley and watched a man getting beat by a mob with no police help. I was the only person to jump in and help.”

“it was sad to watching 20 people beat a man with no one helping”

Shields posted a video of him arguing with some masked protestors after he helped the man being attacked and said in his post, “The aftermath of me helping a guy after being jumped by thugs. The police and 100’s of civilians stood and watched.”

Shields is seen in the video saying, “Dude, you guys have your faces covered, you’re attacking people, you’re being f**king fascists. Look at you guys. You’re fucking embarrassing.”

One of the masked protestors tells Shields, “I came to make sure you were ok. Now don’t touch them.”

“You can’t have like 20 people jump a guy,” Shields replied. “I’m gonna do whatever I have to. It’s not ok.”

Shields also tweeted, “they attacked him for being a trump supporter no other reason.”

“what exactly did he say? Every kept saying he’s a nazi but know knew why. They call everyone with a different opinion a nazi.”
