I Went Behind the Front Lines With the Far-Right Agitators Who Invaded Berkeley

Another man, with an American flag wrapped around his face, tells me he came to defend “Western civilization.” Nathan Domigo, a 30-year-old ex-Marine and the head of the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, is milling in the crowd. Later in the day, he’ll be filmed punching a woman in the face during a street brawl. (After the video goes viral, the woman, Louise Rosealma, says she has been facing harassment and death threats.)

The right-wing side is almost entirely male. Some are dressed in motorcycle half helmets, ski goggles, gloves, and various forms of ghoulish masks. One is wearing a shirt that says “Proud Supporter of the Muslim Ban.” Another’s shirt says “Straight Pride.” They aren’t entirely white. A Latino man wearing a protective vest goes around shouting “Latinos for Trump!”
