Report: Antifa terrorist strangles, nearly murders Trump supporter at ‘Night for Freedom’ event in New York

On Sunday, Breitbart reported that a 56-year-old man was taken away in an ambulance after he was assaulted by an Antifa terrorist outside a “Night for Freedom” event in New York City, a gathering of so-called “New Right” and Trump supporters organized by Mike Cernovich.

According to Breitbart, the unidentified man is currently in a stable condition at Bellevue hospital.

Breitbart further reported:

One Antifa member involved in the assault, David Campbell of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, was arrested on charges of assault, strangulation, criminal obstruction of breathing, resisting arrest, criminal possession of a weapon, and loitering.

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.

“I saw him hit the old man,” witness Ali Thomas told the New York Daily News, which falsely classified the event as alt-right. “One hit. He swung hard. He hit him hard. The old man’s head hit the curb.”

Two others were also hurt in the brawl and taken to local hospitals.  “Their conditions and involvement in the gala were not known,” the Daily News said.

The aftermath of the incident was captured on video by The Wrap’s Jon Levine:

Mike Cernovich added:


Among the leftists at the event was Chelsea Manning, the convicted Army private now running for the U.S. Senate in Maryland.

The Daily News said it’s not known why Manning attended the event, but the far-left activist gave a clue on Twitter:

Infowars’ Owen Shroyer also suggested in a video that Manning may have tipped off Antifa radicals, letting them know where the event was being held:

Manning, as we reported here, has been endorsed by Islamist Linda Sarsour, and could face prosecution for violating regulations regarding a Senate candidacy while on active duty.

The New Jersey state Department of Homeland Security has designated Antifa a domestic terrorist group, and federal authorities have said they engage in terroristic activities.

Breitbart said the event’s venue was “secured at the last minute after a last-minute cancellation by the initial venue.”  Over five hundred attendees were reportedly present.

Exit question: Does Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison endorse this?
