Female Reporter Allegedly Punched By Antifa Protester In Charlottesville

In the wake of the deadly car attack in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, a member of Antifa allegedly punched a female reporter for The Hill for trying to film the chaos at the rally. 

The incident has left at least one person dead with many more injured after a car slammed into a crowd of “anti-fascist” protesters that were responding to an alt-right protest in the city. The suspect driving the car, 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr, was identified by police late Saturday.

Taylor Lorenz was filming at the location of the incident.

According to the video which was given to The Daily Mail by Lorenz, who used to work for the outlet, a shirtless protester objected to her filming asked her to stop recording. Lorenz refused to put her camera away and the protester appears to punch her, shouting “stop fucking recording.” Lorenz can be heard shouting as others intervene while her phone hits the ground.

Lorenz claimed she was fine apart from being “really fucking pissed,” before explaining what happened on Twitter.

According to an update given later by Lorenz, the man already had a warrant out for his arrest.

The violence that occurred on Saturday was condemned by President Trump in a statement.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides,” the President said. “Above all, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first.”

      You are blind. It is coming from the left. Schumer, Pelosi, Bernie and Hillary Clinton. WAKE UP and do your research.

        He was being sarcastic.Sarcasm. Read again. They blame the right for being Nazis,so when they retaliate and Antifags get there ass handed to them it’s called Nazi violence. Get it Yet ?? Hope so.

          People read what they expect to read, not what’s written in front of them. Apparently.

            We cant ever actually understand anything that is written because the words and the meanings they may have are up to the individual who tried to understand them. This is why certain passages in the bible are interpreted in different ways. If you dont believe me see paul de man, based on my understanding of his work this is what I took away from it. We are fortunate to live in an age of live stream. The benefits of the live stream are huge because you can see the person and the total contex of what they are talking about, and in so doing truely understand exactly what they mean.

            Correct. Notice how many interviewees (and not just MILO) now record their interviews separately, for themselves, and for the record? Out-of-context quotes are the norm. My original point was just that the reader’s prior expectations seemed to cloud their vision, temporarily.

            Yeah and the bitch of it is that most people are too lazy to dig deeper. My bro a lefty was talking to me today about video of this black guy getting his ass kicked. He said to me they shouldn’t have kicked his ass like they did. I said that the beating was not all that went down just what he saw. Maybe he had it coming?

        It’s coming from the left as a whole, but if you really want to know where it’s coming from look up George soros and his media ties, then do your own research and don’t be rude

    It’s funny how no one mentions the fact that the people from the unite the right were protesting peacefully as is their first amendment right no matter how offensive it may be, then ANTIFA and BLM show up in typical fashion throwing rocks bottles water balloons filled with urine, paint spraying pepper spray and the police did nothing as they were told by the Mayor to stand down so when the Unite the Right wanted to leave the police would not move the barricade to let them leave away from the alt-left they were made to walk thru those protesters and when things got way outta hand then the police steps in, those people injured and killed that blood is on the hands of the Mayor and the police!

      It isn’t surprising that the story coming from the left and the MS is one-sided, it always is. If Antifa had not shown up the Unite The Right march would have been concluded and they would have left, instead violence happened because that was Antifa’s plan and I sadly believe the Mayor and Governor were aware of the plan and took the opportunity to utilize it for their agenda

        That and the Mayor taking away Unite The Right’s permit at the last second and doing nothing to hold Antifa back, or form a border between protesters and counter-protestors, etc. Watch Lauren Southern’s interview with James Allsup on YT about this; Allsup was there and had some interesting observations.

      And that is why that guy ran them over self defense. Makes sense to me, if a mob was attacking me and my friends I would do the same thing. This is what the left understand. I hope the ones injured were the ones who started the violence instead of innocent bystanders or peaceful protesters. Its called karma. Set out to do evil, get it bad in spades

        Watch the video, it was not self defense. You can side with whatever group. That guy was not driving in self defense.

      Fuck the police coming straight from the “alt right ” underground. I watched a few live streams ( b Alaska and red elephant) and they were chanting ” blue lives matter” to the pigs because they thought they were the good guys lol. In the end it was the blunt instrument of the state that denied them their first amendment right. The federal judges had sided with the constitution after the aclu got involved. The pigs should have known this. But they didnt seem to care about authorities higher than the stupid mayor and govenor. Fuck the police.

    I’m not a “white supremacist”, but I don’t think a lot of those people protesting were either. The days of white supremacy are long gone, and what we are left with is a race that isn’t allowed any moral standing, or allowed to have requests or demands. At this point white people, supremacists or not, are just sick of being shit on. We didn’t do any of the oppressing yet we take the rap for the mistakes of our great grandparents, to be blamed for simply having white skin. It’s bullshit and it’s racism, everything antifa claims to hate they continue, and all the virtue signaling celebrities that use this to get long lusted for attention. White people have the right to say “we’ve had enough of your shit, and we aren’t going to be stomped out of existence because of the color of our skin” seriously, the left can suck some huge dicks on this one, sorry that it isn’t your ideal protest but really, it needed to be said.

    Plus I’ll admit the “we won’t let Jews replace us” chant was pretty accurate if they replaced Jews with khazarian mafia, Jews is such a universal term and most people aren’t gonna understand what that means without claiming it sounds like something that it didn’t intend to, and doesn’t help the whole “nazi” thing the left loves to throw around..
