Award winning independent journalist Tim Pool, who is widely celebrated for his unbiased presentation of events, has announced that he does not believe it is safe for him to cover US political rallies due to escalating threats from antifa, as well as escalating trolls from the right.
“When I go to these events who are creepy stalkers who are conservative leaning trolls and then there is antifa sending me threats, it’s just become too weird,” Pool told Big League Politics.
In a video statement, Pool noted that most of his coverage is international — from Sweden to Ukraine. He is also known to occasionally cover domestic events, however, including the free speech rallies and riots in Ferguson and Baltimore.
“On the antifa side, I get death threats, they post lies about me, they make up crazy stories accusing me of being a fed,” Pool begins. “I was forced to flee Venezuela because some of these activists thought it would be funny to convince people in Venezuela that I was a spy.”
He explained that he has had people attempt to get into his Ubers, his home address emailed to him, and on Saturday — someone sneaking up on him attempting to steal his hat. He stated that while stealing his hat is generally meaningless, it presents the possibility that someone may sneak up on him and hit him.
“The antifa guy assaulted me, it was verbal — the conservative troll actually grabbed me,” Pool told BLP. “One was meant to be harmless fun, but now I am on edge because people think they can come up and put their hands on me.”
He noted that while he has had to deal with some creeps on the right — only members of the far left have actually threatened his safety.
“The extreme right has never threatened or attacked me,” Pool told BLP. “I have never been physically attacked by the extreme right, only the extreme left. However, it isn’t just one issue that is making it clear that it is reckless to show up without security — and I don’t want security.”
On Saturday, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Boston to hold a free speech rally. Pool was in town to cover it when someone from the free speech side snuck up behind him and attempted to snatch the hat off his head, he was also verbally attacked by a member of antifa.
“If you put your hands on me I’ll knock your teeth out, I don’t give a fuck who you think you are,” Pool told BLP. “The only reason I didn’t in this case was because we had the entire Boston PD surrounding us. If I had, I would have been the one to be arrested.”
“You have people in antifa saying ‘punch a Nazi,’ and then people up on that hill were calling me a Nazi — on the livesteam people were saying that I am a Nazi sympathizer and that I’m a known alt-right person or whatever,” Pool said.
Pool is one of the rare journalists who does not publicly express his political views and will criticize both sides. Sadly, this has made him a target of more extreme members of both sides.
“I’m at the point where people feel welcome to come up and put their hands on me,” Pool said. “Are people on the left going to think it’s okay to come up and punch me in the face?”
Due to his increased notoriety, Pool believes that he now faces a serious threat at domestic events — where as internationally he is rarely recognized. He explained that he does not want to be part of the stories he is covering.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters
Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.
A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.
Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.
Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.
A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.
Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.
Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.
McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
