“We understand more than most how fortunate we are to live in a country where we can demonstrate and share our different beliefs,” Manion wrote.
When they eventually got near the entrance a group of around 75 people tried separating them from the ball.
A massive group of violent demonstrators spat on, assaulted and screamed obscenities at a Gold Star widow and sister Friday outside an inaugural ball honoring the military, one of the women told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.
Trash cans were set ablaze, merchants’ windows were smashed and a limousine was even torched during the mayhem.

Gold Star family members say they were attacked by protesters outside inaugural ball – TheBlaze
Two Gold Star family members claim they were attacked Friday night by protesters outside the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C., where the American Legion Salute to Heroes Inaugural Gala was held.
“As we made our way through the crowd we were spit at and called some of the worst and most vile things I have ever heard come out of a person’s mouth,” Manion wrote of when they arrived at the ball.
CNN contributor Mary Katharine Ham, one of Manion’s personal friends, discussed the alleged attack Monday with Jake Tapper, host of “The Lead.” Ham noted that the ball the Gold Star family members were attending was hosted by the American Legion, a nonpartisan organization.
