Left-wing protesters targeted conservative activists Candace Owen and Charlie Kirk Monday and harassed them as they attempted to eat breakfast together in Philadelphia.

“Charlie Kirk and I just got ATTACKED and protested by ANTIFA for eating breakfast,” Owens tweeted Monday with a video clip. “They are currently following us through Philly. ALL BLACK AND HISPANIC police force protecting us as they scream “‘[f***] the racist police.'”

With another video clip, Owens (pictured center above) added: “To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force. Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast. Is this the civil rights era all over again?”

The videos show a swarm of protesters shouting and screaming as they harassed Owens and Kirk both inside and outside the building. A woman can be seen dumping her drink on Kirk, and protesters can be heard chanting, “No More White Supremacy” at Owens, who is black. Police mobilized around Owens and Kirk.

“So @RealCandaceO & I were peacefully eating breakfast this morning. Within 20 mins ANTIFA mobilized a protest, started screaming at us, attacked us, & threatened death against us,” Kirk tweeted.

“This is the face of the Democrats,” Kirk added. “Conservatives aren’t safe — @RepMaxineWaters called for this.”

Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, referred to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who incurred bipartisan backlash after she repeatedly urged protesters to approach members of President Donald Trump’s administration in public and harass them.

“If a angry conservative mob formed while two young liberals, one white guy and a black woman, were eating breakfast, and the mob hurled horrific insults, threw objects and assaulted them, the left would call it a ‘hate crime’ and every major outlet would be demanding condemnation,” Kirk added.

Protesters harassed Owens and Kirk the week after Twitter briefly banned Owens from its platform for tweeting direct quotes from The New York Times’ controversial new opinion-page hire, Sarah Jeong, while replacing “white” for “Jewish.”

Owens has come under left-wing fire for her criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement and her support for Trump’s policies.

“After all these years, white Democrats still believe that they own black people. When you go against how they desire you to think, they viciously attack you,” Owens tweeted. “I was proud to stand with conviction alongside the minority police force today. I escaped the leftist plantation.”
