What did Slaton have to say?

“They’re protecting that and trying to intimidate those who have been there to speak out and in that way raise awareness,” he told Fox News. “But yeah, Antifa seems to be interfering, and you’ve crossed the line when you want to protect kids, and they want to intimidate you.”
