One less violent leftist will be on the streets for the next 18 months now that David Campbell has been sentenced for his role in beating a 56-year-old Trump supporter in Manhattan last year. Campbell is a card-carrying member of the domestic terrorist group known as Antifa, and the 32-year-old took it upon himself to choke and punch the Trump supporter at a Night for Freedom party in January 2018.
In remarks to the New York Post, Mike Cernovich, who organized the party, said the media’s treatment of the attack was a lesson in bias.
“When the Proud Boys got into a street fight with Antifa members, it was a nationwide story. The Mayor and AG tweeted about the street fight. When Antifa attacked a 56-year-old man, silence from the press,” Cernovich said. “Now that the criminal case is closed, I will also be taking legal action against Mr. Campbell and his confederates. It is time to find out who is funding Antifa.”
Make sure you get the spelling right: It’s Soros, not Sorose.
Speaking of Cernovich, it is only because of him that we know anything at all about the Antifa attack or the online calls-to-violence that preceded it. The Night of Freedom was set as an extremely private event – only those who bought a ticket were given the address. Unfortunately, an Antifa thug bought a ticket just to get that privileged information and immediately tweeted out the address for all his socialist buddies to see.
“Listen up, NYC,” a Twitter user wrote. “Cernovich is having an event that needs crashing/protesting.”
Of course, the people who got this message were more interested in creating mayhem than doing anything as innocent-sounding as “protesting” the event. Even taking David Campbell’s nearly homicidal attack on the 56-year-old victim out of the equation, it was clear from social media that Antifa went to the event with the intention of drawing blood.
Prominent left-wing activist Claude Taylor tweeted out the details of the event with this cryptic message: “This is happening right now if anyone wants to give Mike Cernovich a kiss.”
This phrasing was apparently enough to skate by Twitter’s top minds, who claim to have a zero-tolerance approach to threats.
Other users didn’t even bother with that minimal layer of obfuscation.
“If you’re in NYC with nothing to do tonight, here’s a chance to punch a nazi,” tweeted one. “Dress to impress, but wear something that you can get bloody nose mess out of.”
We assume that was all David Campbell had to hear. No clue if he went to the party “dressed to impress,” but he definitely left with blood on his clothes.
Unfortunately, the media/Democrats continue to treat this group like the “anti-fascists” they claim to be. We shudder to imagine how dark their actions might have to get before that calculation changes. Sadly, we’re almost certain to find out sooner than later.
