A crowd of angry pro-Palestinian leftists showed up at a Joe Biden fundraiser in Los Angeles on Friday, causing chaos in the deep blue stronghold.
The demonstrators assembled at a barrier in Holmby Park, close to the Hollywood mansion where Biden was fundraising with Democratic and Hollywood elites.

The protesters were raging against US support for Israel.
Some of the demonstrators went as far as calling Biden “Genocide Joe” for his support of Israel in its war against the terrorist group Hamas.
The crowd was met with a big police presence as they shielded the fundraiser.

Biden’s support for Israel has damaged his support from his far-left base and even some elements of the Democratic Party.
However, Biden hasn’t shied away from his Israel support despite opposition from his party.
Those in attendance at the fundraiser included:
Gov. Gavin Newsom
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
