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.
George Floyd Had Tested Positive for Coronavirus Before His Fatal Police Encounter
Floyd once tested positive for the evil Chinese virus.
George Floyd, who has become a national rallying cry for rioters and looters across the nation since dying during a police encounter, tested positive for COVID-19 in the months prior to his death.
The full autopsy for Floyd was released on Wednesday from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office. Chief Medical Examiner Andrew Baker said that Floyd had tested positive for the coronavirus on April 3 but was reportedly asymptomatic. He also noted that Floyd’s lungs looked fine at the autopsy but he had narrow arteries in his heart, which may have resulted in the heart attack during the police encounter.
Floyd died after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin placed his knee over his neck for nine minutes. He has now been charged with second-degree murder, as authorities tack on more charges against him in order to placate the left-wing mob at war with America.
Big League Politics has reported on the dueling autopsy reports, one from the Medical Examiner that claimed Floyd died due to a heart attack with another commissioned by Floyd’s family that claimed he died of asphyxia:
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has announced that George Floyd, whose death during an encounter with Minneapolis police has set off nationwide riots, had fentanyl in his system during his passing with the cause of death being a heart attack.
The medical examiner claims that Floyd suffered “a cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by law enforcement.” In addition, the report claims that Floyd had used methamphetamine recently in addition to the fentanyl. They listed his cause of death as a homicide.
This comes shortly after the news that another medical examiner, brought onto the case by Floyd’s family attorney Benjamin Clump, determined that Floyd died from asphyxia. Forensic specialist Dr. Michael Baden determined that Floyd was dead for several minutes as he was being restrained with a knee to the back of the neck by former law enforcement officer Derek Chauvin, who is being charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter…
Baden made the case that Floyd was in good health, and the asphyxia was caused solely by Chauvin’s actions. He also determined that the handcuffs and positioning of Floyd on the ground did not allow his diaphragm to function properly, which exacerbated the asphyxia.
“When he said ‘I can’t breathe,’ unfortunately, many police are under impression that if you can talk that means you’re breathing. That is not true,” he said during the news conference.
