Locals, leathernecks and lawmen clashed in a chaotic scene outside a Texas nightclub, where agitators got a first-hand look at the Semper Fidelis slogan.
Austin’s 6th Street is known for rowdy rowdies, and viral footage circulating over the weekend was no exception, as residents of the left-leaning haven were caught confronting US Marines with the her blue dress
It’s unclear what prompted the initial catalyst, a TX Street Fights video post on X began with a woman recording herself outside the Voodoo Room bar and club before another woman snatched her phone from her hand, throwing- the head to the street as he felt her. saying “…break your shit. What!?”
As tempers flared, one of a group of white-clad men confronted a Marine and took a swing that, although the service member narrowly missed, caused his brothers demonstrate what it means to be “always faithful”.
Don’t mess with Texas quickly became “Don’t mess with the Marines,” as Collin Rugg declared on social media as a blue wall formed. Meanwhile, one of the men dressed in white could be seen mistakenly reaching for a punch back at the female protagonist who had triggered the conflict.

Appearing to hold back until the mob of civilians began to wildly throw punches, the Marines moved forward as a unit to defeat the conflict before they had separated from their challengers, even knocking one to the ground. in the street where the blows continued to land.
Within moments, Texas state troopers could be seen entering the fray, pushing the combatants away from each other and separating the packs just as more police, including a mounted division, arrived.
At least one of the men in white could be seen in handcuffs before the TX Street Fights video cut to a different fight where spectators encouraged one fighter to “get them.”
While it was unclear how the conflict had started, the number of arrests made and what punishment, if any, awaited the Marines for fighting back, social media commentators rallied behind the young men to stand united, seeming to show greater restraint than their opponents as well as being named the winners of the fight.
Others couldn’t help but call out the apparent decline in respect for the nation as one suggested: “American citizens attacking decorated US Marines on American soil is deeply troubling,” and a another said: “What a disgraceful incident in Austin! Our brave marines, defending themselves after unprovoked attacks. This is the state of our country – disrespect for those who risk their lives. Unbelievable!”

As others expressed concern about the potential ramifications for Marines in the blue city with a progressive, soft-crime district attorney, more were surprised that someone would try to pick a fight against easily identifiable service members. “These guys are wearing the official ‘Dont f×©k with us’ uniform and they still did it…” commented one while another quipped: “So why did anyone think it would be a good plan to fight on the street with the marines?”
