Liberals will be the first to tell you that Antifa and BLM protests across the country are filled with peace-loving people who just want to make society a better place. Some adherents to the radical ideologies of the groups may actually be peaceful and may actually want that. But as we have seen as these “protests” have inevitably turned to riots over the past year, the overall consensus is “burn it all down and start over.” And while leftists will swear up and down that they only want peace, one reporter learned firsthand that these thugs mean business.
An anti-eviction rally in Detroit, Michigan’s Greektown turned violent on Saturday as “protesters” chanted “Black homes are under attack, tell me what do we do, rise up fight back!” And “fight” they did. Reporter Brendan Gutenschwager says that “a man wearing an Antifa pin committed the first assault during the march.”
“Camera stopped a few times while he attempted to steal it. Eventually, others in the group urged him aside to release me from against the building,,” Gutenschwager tweeted. The video is disturbing.
“You’re not f*cking welcome here!” Antifa thugs screamed.
This open hostility could only lead to one place — one of the terrorists slamming Gutenschwager against a concrete barricade and putting him in a chokehold. The reporter was left bloodied from the incident.
“A man rammed me against a concrete fence and barricade, bloodying my mouth and elbow as well as putting me in a chokehold while stealing my camera. That was then thrown over a fence, which I eventually was able to retrieve and continue recording,” the reporter says. Ultimately, he left for his own safety.
Leftists say that their rallies, marches, and protests are peaceful. But say one thing they don’t like or try to document the gathering or wear a uniform or love your country and they will take out their claws and start slashing at you. Prayers to this brave reporter in recovering from his injuries.
