DC Bureau Chief for Rebel Media and U.S. Navy veteran, Jack Posobiec was assaulted on Sunday when he arrived to interview members of the ANTIFA of their recent violence at three different events including President Trump’s inauguration.
Before Posobiec was able to interview them, he was punched by an ANTIFA member.

“I had arrived to interview them about the recent violence in Berkeley, and their violence at the DC Deploraball and the inauguration, just before the assault took place, “said Posobiec. “I filed charges against my assailant. In fact he is in court today for a preliminary hearing, prosecuted by the US Attorney’s office of DC.”
“I’ll keep you posted on what happens next.”
Shortly after the assault, the local police saw the attack and immediately arrested the ANTIFA member who claimed what he did was in self-defense which nothing in the video shows that the ANTIFA member was attacked first.
Antifascist Action (Antifa, AFA) first appeared in Germany in 1932, and was a moniker used by the German Communist Party.
As per the usual for leftist groups, antifascist groups usually agree on very few things and there is no such thing as “national headquarters”, and even local groups are often best understood as a coalition of disparate groups allied for a common goal or even a single demonstration that don’t see eye to eye on other issues. Groups that are subsumed under the “Antifa” label can be as diverse as unreformed Stalinist tankies.
