It has been reported by the Washington Post that a conservative blogger knowingly infiltrated the rally and actively escalated the situation which resulted in the pepper spraying.
A group of people from the Stop The Machine, October 6th D.C. Occupation were marching to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum to protest their glorification of war and use of unethical war technology by having an exhibit on the unmanned Predator Drone. Before they even walked inside they were pepper sprayed. Here is what happened after the pepper spraying.
