John Dennis, Chairman of the San Francisco Republican Party and a congressional candidate running against Democrat Nancy Pelosi for California’s 12th Congressional district this fall, was threatened with violence while attending a street cleanup effort Tuesday.

San Francisco has been ravaged by homelessness, opioid addiction and other problems that have not been seriously addressed. A beautiful city is quickly becoming unrecognizable, with needles and fecal matter on the ground, prompting people like Dennis to pitch in with these clean up efforts.

Dennis says that thirty to forty Antifa members showed up to protest the event just because Republicans were involved. One Antifa agitator told Dennis, “Bruh, I’ma gonna catch you when all the cameras aren’t around, and I’m gonna f*ck you up. And that’s just for starters.”

The same protestor also told Dennis, “I want you dead.” He then called Dennis a “racist” and a “piece of sh*t.”

Dennis asked him how he could says he was racist. The Antifa member responded by saying, “I can tell by looking at you.”

Dennis responded to this situation with a Periscope video on Tuesday.
