A Florida journalist was assaulted by a violent mob of angry leftists while covering a public rally for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
“I was assaulted by
@AndrewGillum supporters as a gay journalist covering his violent mob. Denounce this rabid attack or admit you condone violence Andrew… the world is watching!” said Jacob Engels of Central Florida Post on Twitter, attaching a video of the event.
Engels told Big League Politics that he was assaulted by Gillum’s supporters – including a campaign staffer – for asking about Hungarian billionaire George Soros’ ties to the campaign.
“The guy in the pink shirt [in the video] is actually part of the Gillum campaign,” Engels said. “Gillum’s security did nothing. They didn’t stop the violence. He didn’t stop his speech or denounce the violence.”
“Questioning Soros set the mob on fire,” Engels said. “One woman chucked a beer at me. I was punched, kicked and hit with an umbrella.”
Engels said the mob only backed off after a passerby who was at the public park, but not attending the event, jumped in and staved off the rabid leftists. Engels’ cameraman was also assaulted when he kneeled down to pick up his equipment, which had been knocked to the ground by Gillum’s supporters.
“If they don’t condemn the violence then they support and encourage it, and I guess we’ll be seeing more of it at his events,” Engels said.
Engels will be pursuing legal action.
The radical mob-like behavior from angry leftists continues, inspired by politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) who called for harassment of Republicans, and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) who told his supporters to “get up in the face” of Trump supporters.
Gillum squares off with Republican Ron DeSantis in the Florida gubernatorial election on Nov. 6.
WATCH: Portland ANTIFA Burn Police Union Building for the THIRD TIME As Terror Continues
The police seem impotent.
Portland ANTIFA continued its reign of terror over the Oregon city on Saturday night, setting a fire within a Portland Police Bureau union building that the far-left militant group had already targeted and successfully burned on two previous occasions.

A combined force of the Portland Police and Oregon State Police ejected the far-left thugs from the area shortly after the arson attack on the union building, finally showing some force after it appeared the ANTIFA mob had free reign to act with impunity.

On Friday night, ANTIFA militants were observing congregating at a woman’s home before attacking her. The crowd has dispersed throughout the city for mob action this past week, selecting new targets after Portland finally took responsibility for the security of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse.

The mob’s arson attack comes only days after Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler finally admitted that the rioters are not “peaceful protestors,” having consistently defended the city’s left-wing militants as they attacked the Hatfield Courthouse. Now that protestors are back to targeting municipal buildings and structures, Wheeler seems to have a lot less patience for them, raising questions as to why he consistently failed to recognize the problem when federal law enforcement deployment to the courthouse were forced to deal with it.
