A protestor was caught whipping Trump supporters into a frenzy in Manhattan, just moments after he covered an ‘anarchist’ tattoo commonly worn by Antifa agitators. 

Leading a chant of ‘Let’s go Trump!’, the man started questioning another protestor’s allegiance to the former president – ahead of his potential indictment by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. 

Not long before leading the frenzy, he was spotted by a photojournalist on the scene hiding a tattoo of the anarchist ‘A’ symbol emblazoned on his neck. 

The suspicious appearance comes after years of speculation from Trump’s base that Antifa instigators join their events to incite violence.

The scenes erupted after a man, dressed similarly to the notorious ‘Q-Anon Shaman’ from the January 6 riots, was swarmed by furious protestors for apparently faking his support for Donald Trump. 

The individual with an anarchist tattoo ordered him prove he was not ‘wearing a wire’, while several others joined in and accused him of being ‘a plant’. 

While the ‘shaman’ bore his chest and fired back, ‘Do you want to see?’, the suspicious protestor closes in and again orders him to prove he isn’t wearing a microphone. 

‘He’s got more wires than a PlayStation,’ he jokes. ‘Show us the wire!’ 

The bizarre interaction ends with the supposed-faker stripping off his shirt and revealing he isn’t wearing a recording device, which is greeted by raucous chants of ‘Let’s go Trump’.

Independent photojournalist Rebecca Brannon, who shared the initial footage online, said that she was the one who spotted the man had a tattoo of the anarchist logo on his neck – which is a common symbol among Antifa members. 

‘I noticed his circle-A tattoo – the classic symbol prominently associated with Antifa and anarchists,’ she said. 

‘He knew I noticed then put his hoodie up’. 

The speculation comes as conspiracies have swirled for years that authorities, particularly the FBI, send in ‘plants’ to incite hostility at right-wing events. 

These conspiracies erupted following the scenes on January 6, 2021, when Donald Trump supporters became embroiled in ugly scenes as they raced to the Capitol.

Many of the former-president’s supporters have flocked to New York City this week following news of his incoming indictment, as Trump himself ordered his followers to take to the streets if he is hauled into custody. 

Hordes of MAGA advocates gathered outside Trump Tower to pledge their allegiance, including one who said she would side with him if it came to a civil war. 

Stephanie Lu, a 59-year-old Chinese-American woman, said she didn’t vote for him in 2016, but once he became president she came to realize she likes what he stands for. 

‘We value hard work, law abiding, the conservative value is what Chinese Americans treasure, we have the same conservative values,’ she said.

‘If there’s a civil war I am fighting. I will fight with my life. And the Democrats, they should wake up. We are fighting for them too. 

‘They’re the next generation. If they become communist serfs their children will suffer. We are fighting for them, especially white people.’

She also spoke ill of the Manhattan DA, who she said wasn’t doing a good job of fighting what she called real crime in the city.

‘This district attorney didn’t do nothing to those criminals. The real criminals,’ Lu said.

Her prediction was that if Trump is arrested it will result in either a landslide victory or a civil war – a view shared by many of her fellow-protestors. 

Stephanie Lu, a 59-year-old Chinese-American woman, said she thought Trump's arrest would either end in a landside victory for the former president in 2024, or civil war. 'If there's a civil war I am fighting. I will fight with my life,' she said

Dion Cini, 54, the founder of TrumpSwag.com, a company that manufactures MAGA political merchandise, said he thought the indictment of Trump was wrong but expected the move would only boost his ratings, referring to a ‘Trump bump’.  

‘The good news is it’s a win win, no matter what happens tomorrow,’ said Dion. ‘I call it the Trump bump. No matter what happens tomorrow, there’s a 10-15 point bump in Trump’s ratings,’ he said.

‘If they if they arrest him, he gets a Trump bump. If they don’t arrest him, he gets a Trump bump.’ 

Kalman Brudo, a 66-year-old from Brooklyn, also said getting arrested could work in his favor.

‘We’re in New York City, New York City is the belly of the beast of the liberal, but I think it’s going to help Trump tremendously because people are going to see its a scam,’ Brudo said.

‘I don’t want to see him arrested but if he is arrested, I think it’s gonna work for him. They just want to do a perp walk. They want him humiliated. They want to take that picture,’ he said.

‘I used to be a left. The leftists know to speak. We’re with the program. We’re smart. The right, except for exceptions are like idiots. They don’t know how to respond.’
