Thursday night, Big League Politics had staff on the ground to continue its ongoing coverage of the violent Antifa rallies at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
While the mainstream local news stayed 100 yards away from the action, eating granola bars, drinking Gatorade and fixing their hair, our reporters were in the thick of the violence filming feral Antifa members as they hurled slurs at police and assaulted anyone politically right of Stalin.
Here is a recap of what happened to this reporter:
We returned the scene about 45 minutes later, as police had just finished releasing tear gas on an increasingly violent crowd.
Soon we were encircled by violent thugs screaming “F*ck Big League Politics,” who continuously told us that we – as reporters – were not welcome to film there. When we refused to leave, the assaults began.
First, my phone, which I was using to record, was grabbed and along with my forearms, shoved into my face. I told the assailant not to touch me, and turned away as my phone smacked out of my hand by another rioter. As a colleague picked it up, I was shoved by multiple members of the crowd. My phone was handed back to me, and I continued filming, at which point it was slapped out of my hand again, and simultaneously I received a blow to the head from a man who, after reviewing the video, was the same one threatening our lives from earlier.
As I picked my phone up off the ground, police finally charged in to stop the violence – but not arrest Antifa members. Instead, they grabbed me and hauled me into an academic building close by, with a mob of Antifa rioters following, as well as press swarming for photographs.
Inside the building, occupied by about 20 UNC Police Officers and at least 20 more paramilitary State Troopers in full riot gear with machine guns in tow, I was shoved against a wall, legs and arms spread, and was searched. I was placed in handcuffs while my backpack was searched. I was silent through this part of the ordeal.
Finally, the police asked me what I was doing, and I told them I was a reporter. Arresting a reporter – particularly a conservative one – while violent leftist thugs are rioting outside is not a good optic. Realizing this, the police stopped accosting me and started listening. I was un-cuffed as they checked my identification, verified that I was a reporter, and took a statement as I described the assaults above.
Soon, I was free to go.
To give credit to the UNC Police in what was surely a difficult situation, they handled it well after they understood that I was there doing my job, and not to cause trouble.
We are in the process of working with them to identify not only the rabid leftists who assaulted me, but those who committed violence against others, too.
The black bloc members were led by regional Antifa leaders who are professional anarchists, including Kathleen Collier Reeves, Sam Carey and Elizabeth Schroder. Josh Mascharka, who committed violence at Charlottesville, and is one of the most violent members of the group was present as well. All of them train with their ever-petulant leader, Dwayne Dixon, a UNC professor who was not present Thursday night. Dixon chased James Fields with a rifle in Charlottesville, which he has openly bragged about, just before Fields hit and killed Heather Heyer with his vehicle.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Spread Pro-Murder #GUILLOTINE2020 Hashtag Following Campaign Suspension
They aren’t even hiding their true intentions anymore.
Following news of socialist hero Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign for the Democrat nomination for President, some of his most extreme supporters made their voices heard with explicit calls for violence.
As soon as the announcement was made via live-stream, a dedicated segment of his supporters began using the hashtag #GUILLOTINE2020, seemingly advocating for using guillotines to behead their political enemies.
I want Jeff Bezos head in a guillotine. Then Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mike Bloomberg, and of course, Donald Trump.
They shut down Bernie's political revolution, the only choice is a real revolution.#GUILLOTINE2020

These sort of posts, which some on the left attempt to downplay by claiming they are nothing more than jokes, have been showing up increasingly in recent years.
Far-left “journalist” Kim Kelly, who was fired from both Vice News and NPR for her extremism, wrote in Teen Vogue about the phenomena around this sort of fetishization of the guillotine, where she acknowledges that many are not joking in their posts:
“On social media, a tone-deaf tweet or Facebook post from any wealthy CEO or out-of-touch politician is invariably met with a sea of guillotine gifs, calls for retribution against predatory billionaires, or otherwise vitriolic responses from people with guillotine in their usernames — and it feels less and less like they’re joking.”
Kelly herself admits to having a guillotine tattoo, and if her writing is any indication, she likely wouldn’t hesitate to use one on her perceived political enemies. She has previously celebrated a militant Antifa cell after one of their members attempted to firebomb an ICE facility in Tacoma, WA. Kelly also created a guide on throwing milkshakes at those she perceives to be fascists while writing for VICE. Of course, the practice of “milkshaking” got world-wide attention following the brutal beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, which involved the throwing of milkshakes.
Needless to say, the next few months could get extremely violent as supporters of Bernie Sanders continue to let their true intentions know. As Project Veritas exposed, these far-left views are even prevalent in Sander’s campaign, with one paid staffer stating, “Guillotine the rich” while on undercover video.
Even senior Sanders staff are making their more extreme views known, with his national Press Secretary Briahna Joy Gray admitting that the “Democratic” prefix in Democrat Socialism means nothing.
On the plus side, I can drop the “Democratic” from my tweets about why Socialism is good. 😉
