Amidst raucous protests in Berkeley, California, a number protestors who appeared to be supporters of President Tump posed in front of cameras giving the Nazi salute.

A Mother Jones reporter uploaded photos of the salutes on Twitter.

Another symbol associated with the “alt-right” appeared at the protests — frogs. One man carried a hand-painted sign of Pepe the Frog, the mascot of the “alt-right.” Another wore a flag emblazoned with the word “Kek,” a reference to an invented frog deity, popular in “alt-right” circles.

At least 21 people were arrested as Trump supporters and opponents clashed Saturday at a park in Berkeley, according to CNN. Eleven people were injured, with seven transported to the hospital.
