Journalists Attacked By Antifa at G20 After Being Targeted By Fake News

Published

We Are Change journalist Luke Rudkowski, independent Dresden-based journalist Max Bachmann and Marcus DiPaola of Heavy.com were attacked by Antifa while covering the G20 protests after being labeled as Nazis by a local mainstream reporter.

The group was targeted after being spotted walking near controversial political commentator Lauren Southern.

Independent journalist Tim Pool, whose unbiased on the ground reporting has won awards, was also targeted and threatened as the group set their sights on Southern and anyone associated with her.

Pool told Big League Politics that Southern had been wearing an Identitarian shirt when they arrived at the protest.

“We all know each other so we typically are in the same vicinity when we cover stories, for safety,” Pool told Big League. He explained that credentialed German journalist Soren Kohlhuber had seen Southern and began taking photos of her and Rudkowski.

Kohnhuber had been tweeting the locations of Southern and those who dared to stand near her while declaring that they are all identitarian “fascists.” The journalist also began sending his target’s information to members of the violent Antifa mob, according to Pool.

“This journalist then tweeted that we were all Identitarians,” Pool explained. “The local German reporter, Luke, and an American freelancer were all beaten because of this photo. I had left after they started posting my whereabouts and photos of me.”

Pool added that several people had gone to his defense online and called the journalist out on his claims, but he did not retract them.

Prior to the attack, Rudkowski had been warned that people were walking around with the photos of him and the other journalists open on their phones while looking for them. As they were attempting to leave the scene, they began being followed by a group of roughly 10 members of Antifa.

As Antifa approached Rudkowski they accused of him being a Nazi, to which he loudly declared that he was not. Despite his long track record of impartial reporting, his declaration did not stop the activists from proceeding to jump him and the two other reporters.

Rudkowski claims that after the assault Antifa continued to follow them, and threatened to kill them if they did not leave town.

Southern has made an emotional video responding to the attack, in which she asserts that she did not even really know the two other assault victims, and that they had just happened to be walking near her when they became targets.

Speaking to Big League Politics, Southern said that she feels terrible.

“I honestly just feel terrible,” Southern said. “I’m not sure what to say. I didn’t expect the people around me to get hurt because of my opinions — it’s changed the game entirely. These people are out of their minds and need to be dealt with immediately. They are a terrorist organization.”

Pool stressed that he is not an identitarian and is mixed race, “but it doesn’t matter to these people. They just attack,” he said.

“I understand if you don’t like me and take issue with my work. You’re allowed to hate me. But when you go and beat an innocent local reporter simply for walking past Lauren Southern as a photo was being taken you are a violent extremist, you are the bad guy,” Pool told Big League.

Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus

They hate western civilization.

Published

on

Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”

Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.

They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.

This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”

They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”

Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.

Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.

The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
