UPDATE: Domestic terrorist David Campbell was sentenced to 18 months in prison for his attack. Read the full report here.
—Original story below—
A 56-year old Jewish man was carried away in a stretcher after a 30 year old white male pounced on him. David Campbell, who faces 3 to 15 years in prison, sucker punched the man as he was leaving an event. He then tried strangling him to death. When police intervened, Campbell put a police officer in a head lock.
Here is the aftermath of the attack via the NY Daily News, which reported on it.
Here is the statement issued by NYPD after the attack.
On Saturday, January 20, 2018 at approximate 2230 hours, police received a pick up job of a 30 year-old male punching and choking a 56 year-old male at the corner of 50 Street and 11 Avenue within the confines of the 18th Precinct (MTN). Officers intervened and arrested the perpetrator. EMD responded and transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital and is currently in stable condition. Charges are pending.
The man who was attacked wasn’t politically active, and certainly wasn’t “alt-right,” although even endorsing an attack like that on bad people is going to take the country in a bad direction.
He heard there was an event from a friend, and showed up. When police warned him against walking towards black-clad ANTIFA members, he shrugged it off. “They are just protesters, there’s nothing to worry about,” he told an officer on the scene.
Coming from another generation, he hadn’t learned the difference between the Woman’s March (peaceful) and ANTIFA, and one might also lay blame for his attack on the media, which refuses to accurately report on the hundreds of violent attacks committed by masked men.
The attack happened because people doxed the venue, and directly incited and encouraged violence.
I kept the location secret. Only people who purchased a ticket were sent the venue address, and the address wasn’t sent out until 5 p.m.
The email read:
Please DO NOT share this address with anyone, even a friend, and do not post it on social media.
No one who doxed the venue can claim they didn’t know about ANTIFA’s violent past, and none can claim the event was public.
Some have said they didn’t “dox” the venue because it was public. That’s a lie. The ticket said on it: “Please DO NOT share this address with anyone, even a friend, and do not post it on social media.” The event was private.
Someone bought a ticket in order to get the address. They then forwarded the address out, and the dox was amplified on social media.
ANTIFA showed up to commit violence, and they almost murdered a man.
All of this happened in the open.
Claude Taylor, for example, told ANTIFA to attack me. His account remains verified, and no action was taken, and his threatening Tweet (Archive) is still up.
Claude Taylor can try playing games with his “kiss” line, but his followers got the message. One of them was overt.
“If you’re in NYC with nothing to do tonight, here’s a chance to punch a nazi. Dress to impress, but wear something that you can get bloody nose mess out of.” (Archive.)
Again, the man who was attacked was Jewish. Not that it should matter, no one should be sucker punched and nearly choked to death for simply walking home. But that detail goes to show how blind ANTIFA’s rage is.
ANTIFA organized a violent mob on Twitter, and were explicit in their aims.
They wanted to make “racists afraid,” and yet tried killing a Jewish man. ANTIFA uses violence for sport, and have no actual values or principles.
The man who was attacked had relatives killed by Nazis.
The ANTIFA thug who tried killing a Jewish man after a mob was organized on Twitter faces 3 to 15 years in prison.
30-year old David Campbell faces multiple felony charges, including attempted aggravated gang assault, which carries a considerable prison sentence. (Public court records are here.)
The New York Post captured a picture of Campbell during his arrest.
ANTIFA threatened children.
While “protesting” outside of the event, several unidentified members of ANTIFA said they wanted to murder my child. My child wasn’t at the event, and whatever one thinks of me, that seems to be over the line.
ANTIA threatened a journalist.
Although we often hear about a war on the free press by Trump and his supporters, actual violence is from one direction. Jon Levine, who was reporting on the aftermath of the violent assault, was threatened by ANTIFA.
This entire Night of Violence was organized on Twitter.
My question is this: Why doesn’t the media report on ANTIFA violence?
Shouldn’t accounts that organized an actual violent attack be banned? Where is the media scrutiny? Where are the media calls for these accounts to be banned?
ANTIFA directly incited violence. They doxed a venue. They told people to commit violence. They threatened children. They threatened a journalist. One of them is facing a lengthy prison sentence for the attack.
This isn’t a hard case where one needs to connect dots or find loose associations between people and groups.
- ANTIFA bought a ticket,
- Doxed the venue on social media,
- Told people to commit violence,
- Showed up to the event,
- Attacked a 56 year old man.
This is a clear case of social media being used to organize violence. Yet if you turn on CNN or MSNBC or follow verified journalist’s accounts on Twitter, you won’t see any mention of this.
Online harassment happens, and sometimes it turns violent. In this case, there were no dog whistles, they used loud and blood bull horns.
Trump Channels CNN in Joe Scarborough “Cold Case”
“It’s possible, but I don’t know.” With those words former FBI Director James Comey set a new standard for media coverage of public figures. Even when there is no evidence to substantiate your claim, even when you’re relying on a document that had been discredited within the FBI, even when you’re quoting work product that was the result of Russian disinformation, you give no quarter to your enemies.
I am referencing the infamous pee-pee interview James Comey gave to ABC. Comey’s words were amplified by every media outlet. No context was added (such as the FBI’s knowing the Steele dossier was funded by Democrats and contained hoaxes from Russian pranksters).
"I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether a current host of a major MSNBC show killed a staffer. It’s possible, but I don’t know."
How is that *any* different from this stuff CNN and media did for 3 years? https://t.co/UtFxbLDx8P

And now Trump is applying these same principles to Joe Scarborough.
Media figures cry foul. What moral authority do they have?
Scarborough’s own colleague Rachel Maddow accuses people of being Russian assets. When called to answer those allegations in court, she claims that her assertions, believed to be statements of fact by her millions of viewers, are “quintessential statements of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.”
As much as I’m glad to see Joe Scarborough be treated with the same “journalistic ethics” as he treats others, I feel for the Lori Klausutis family, who no doubt do not want these painful memories resurfaced. Scarborough deserves this, but the Klausutis family does not.
But as always the media is treating itself as the real victim here.
The same media figures who recklessly smeared innocent teenagers from Covington High School as racists have much to say about a need for others to measure their words.
The same media figures who obsess over every mean Tweet a conservative posts ignores Scarborough’s on-air recording joking about the tragic death of a staffer.
Feel some empathy for the Klausutis. They are caught in a battle they didn’t start.
Scarborough, however, is getting exactly what he and everyone else on cable news deserves.
Whoa! Did Joe Scarborough really say this? https://t.co/jXz58vz3zn

Maddow’s “I’m Not a Real Journalist” Defense Prevails in Court
Any belief that Rachel Maddow is a journalist was set to rest in a San Diego federal courtroom on Friday, with a federal judge dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought against Maddow. The judge concluded that Maddow was far too silly to be taken as a credible news source.
The lawsuit against Maddow was brought by OANN, a news network that Maddow falsely accused on her show as being controlled by the Kremlin.
For the lawsuit to go forward, OANN would had to have shown that Maddow’s show stated facts rather than opinions.
In court Maddow’s lawyer argued that her show was one of “quintessential statements of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false.” John Nolte called Maddow’s lawyer’s claim “the Alex Jones defense,” although comparing Maddow to Jones is an insult to Jones in light of the Russigate and Avenatti hoaxers Maddow perpetrated.
In any event, the court agreed with Maddow’s lawyers. The defamation claim was dismissed because Maddow’s show is one of “opinion and rhetorical hyperbole,” and Maddow engages in an “exaggeration of the facts.”
If you think I’m exaggerating, read the full ruling.
The judge himself seemed to think Maddow is a silly teenager rather than an actual reporter, as he highlights her show uses terms like “sparkly” and “giblet.” The judge also found it compelling that Maddow moved her head in goofy ways.
Maddow’s win is America’s gain.
No one can credibly claim that Maddow’s show is real news.

Susan Rice Sent Herself a Cover Your Butt Memo re General Flynn Unmasking
Susan Rice, the former National Security Adviser under Obama, was so unconcerned with the unmasking going on under her watch that she did what all innocent people do. She sent herself a Memo to Self.
This Memo to self contained this hilarious line:
- President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book.”
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey also suggested withholding information about Russia to the incoming National Security Adviser.
