Leave.EU tweeted a mocked-up video portraying Nigel Farage and cronies throwing beer over politicians, days before condemning protesters for throwing milkshakes over him.
The video superimposes the heads of Farage, Anne Widdecombe and chairman Richard Tice on unruly kids holding a six-pack of lager.
‘Farage’ lobs an open can of lager at a figure with Jean-Claude Juncker’s head superimposed on it.
Later, ‘Widdecombe’ sprays beer over figures with Michael Gove and Theresa May’s heads superimposed.
The gang of youths then smashes ‘Corbyn’ through a window.
“Farage & co are wreaking havoc in the polls and the establishment can’t handle it!” said the tweet.
Earlier, Leave.EU publicly condemned several assaults where UKIP and The Brexit Party politicians have had milkshakes thrown at them by members of the public.
Milkshakes have been poured over UKIP’s Tommy Robinson and Carl Benjamin, and most recently, Farage.
The attacks, at least one of which has resulted in arrests, have been condemned by Brexiteers such as Julia Hartley-Brewer who said that “the new political divide” is now “whether or not you think it’s funny/clever/acceptable to throw a milkshake over a politician just because you disagree with them”.

After the beer video, Leave.EU then tweeted that political sketch writer Tom Peck, who appeared on Good Morning Britain, is “odious” for finding the milkshake assaults funny.
“The odious Tom Peck says the milkshake hit on Nigel Farage was funny,” stormed the tweet. “Watch him squirm as he’s asked if he’d find it similarly hilarious if the same thing happened to Anna Soubry. What an oik.”
Twitter user Matthew Hodson, who spotted the video, tweeted: “I’m not defending the milkshake but Farage has reaped just what he sowed.”
This is the new political divide. Not north/south or rich/poor or even Brexit/Remain.— Julia Hartley-Brewer (@JuliaHB1) May 20, 2019
It's whether or not you think it's funny/clever/acceptable to throw a milkshake over a politician just because you disagree with them. That's it.
So basically it's anti-democrats vs democrats.
