Pro-Palestinian protesters vandalized property near the White House on Saturday and threw objects at a National Park Service ranger, calling him "piggy."

Protesters accused President Joe Biden of being on the wrong side of history after security measures increased at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Participants were seen waving Palestine flags and chanting "Free Palestine!" according to Fox News.

Other statements shouted by protesters at park rangers included, "F-you, fascist!" and "piggy, piggy, oink, oink!" 

Anti-Israel protests have spread all over the country amid the Israel-Hamas war, with encampments occurring all over college campuses. 

A statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square near the White Hoysr was also defaced. 

Multiple barriers were put up around the White House ahead of the planned protest.
