SHOCK ATTACK: Trump Supporter Nearly Strangled to Death By Antifa Terrorist In New York

A 56-year-old male Trump supporter was nearly murdered by a 30-year-old male Antifa terrorist in New York City Saturday night as he walked away from a ticketed nightclub party called a Night for Freedom that was organized by Mike Cernovich to celebrate the first anniversary of the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

The unidentified victim had gotten about a block away from the FREQNYC nightclub where the Night for Freedom party was being held. He was followed by a man identified by police as David Campbell of Crown Heights, New York as the person arrested for the attack. Campbell reportedly stepped away from the Antifa mob gathered outside the venue to follow the victim. A witness says Campbell punched the victim in the head causing him to fall and hit his head on the curb. Campbell then reportedly started strangling the man.

When the victim was rescued, he barely had a pulse and needed CPR. He did not regain consciousness until he was in an ambulance headed to the hospital. Two other people were reported injured in the attack and were also taken to hospitals.

The national news media has ignored this near fatal attack on a Trump supporter. The New York Post, New York Daily News, WCBS-TV and Breitbart are the about all the outlets that have covered the attack. A keyword search using the arrested attacker’s name, David Campbell, did not return results from the New York Times, AP or other national/political media.

Excerpts from the various reports:

New York Daily News.

Violence erupted outside an alt-right gala in Midtown Saturday when a black-clad protester punched and choked a partygoer, cops said.

Far-right provocateur Mike Cernovich was inside the event at the FREQNYC nightclub on W. 50th St. when the fisticuffs broke out about 10:30 p.m.

“I saw him hit the old man,” said witness Ali Thomas, 24. “One hit. He swung hard. He hit him hard. The old man’s head hit the curb.”

The 911 caller said initially that the 56-year-old was in cardiac arrest after the fight, according to fire officials. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, officials noted.

…Two more people were hurt in the brawl. One person was taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, while another went to Bellevue. Their conditions and involvement in the gala were not known.”…

The New York Post:

…The 30-year-old…Campbell allegedly jumped the Trump supporter once they were a block away, punching him and choking him so aggressively that he was not breathing and had a faint pulse.

First responders had to perform CPR, and the victim finally regained consciousness when he was in the ambulance, authorities said.

The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

Campbell, who was also carrying a can of Mace, was charged with strangulation, multiple counts of assault, resisting arrest, loitering, criminal possession of a weapon, and obstruction of government administration, police said.

He was also booked on charges of attempted assault and attempted criminal obstruction of breathing after he tried to put an officer in a headlock, authorities said.

The cop was treated for his injuries at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center…

Kudos to the New York Post which has posted two previous reports on the attack.


And here.

Video by Jonathan Levine, Media Editor for The Wrap, of the aftermath of the attack was posted to You Tube. A few minutes into the video, the unconscious victim can be seen on the street just feet from his alleged attacker. Levine can also be seen in the video being chased and assaulted by Antifa terrorists but he denies they attacked him when asked by the police when they rescued him. Instead he whined about getting pushed by police when he was trying to video the arrested David Campbell as he was surrounded by police. Otherwise, kudos also to Levine for the video.

Levine posted reports and clarifications to Twitter.

Other tweets on the attack and Antifa:

Cernovich had a message for Antifa and others in opposition.

Will the national media report on the nearly successful attempted murder of a Trump supporter by Antifa?
