This past weekend, a number of Democratic presidential candidates were in the state of Iowa and among those was the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg.
Conservative gun rights activist, pro-life advocate, journalist for Infowars, and social media personality, Kaitlin Bennett was in town for the ‘Picnic with Pete’ event.
After Bennett began asking some rally participants about the stories of child drag queens that continue to make headlines in the news and if they believe its child abuse for parents to put their underage children through hormone replacement therapy, the assaults began.
In a now viral video that has received more than 1.5 million views across three platforms, Bennett, her fiance Justin, and her cameraman Michael are seen being violently attacked while filming an introduction for their video. The three of them were all assaulted at around 1pm by a rally goer and his father.
The two individuals can be seen entering into the frame and flipping off their middle fingers at Bennett, as they proceed to threaten her and throw expletives at her crew.
One of the men proceeds to shove Bennett’s fiance, in what appears to have been an attempt to knock the camera out of Justin’s hands as his father got in Bennett’s face. The man quickly turned around and saw Michael was filming on his phone, and swatted the cell phone out of his hands, shouting “F*ck you” repeatedly.
After Michael said he was going to call the police, the young man steals a water bottle from Michael and throws it at his face. He then yells more expletives at the team and slaps Bennett, before a local Cedar Rapids man ran in to get the two men away from Bennett.
The two men that attacked Bennett are believed to be Ethan Buhrow and his father Michael Buhrow, who traveled out of state from Illinois to attend the Buttigieg rally.
Ethan is a political science major at Arizona State University and lists on his Facebook page that he was a Field Organizer for failed Democratic candidate Nancy Zettler, who ran for Illinois State Senate last year and lost. Mike Buhrow produced videos for Zettler’s Democratic campaign through his freelance video company, Edge Editorial, and appeared to have a camera bag slung over his shoulders when he and his son attacked Bennett in Iowa.
Bennett filed a police report with the Cedar Rapids Police Department, and they are currently seeking a warrant for Buhrow’s arrest.
