Conservative journalist Peter D'Abrosca was attacked at the Silent Sam protests by Antifa members. Peter posted on Twitter saying he had been assaulted by at least three people while reporting on the #SilentSam protests. Demonstrations were held Thursday to remember the statue that had been physically pulled down by protestors.

Peter added that University of North Carolina police took him into custody after the assault and was upset that it wasn't him instead of his attackers being led into an academic building in handcuffs. He later added that the police found out he was a reporter and were cool to him.

Peter later posted this video message on Twitter but footage of the assault has not yet been released. He claims at least one of the attackers was identified due to his footage.

I guess antifa is going to half to kill someone before they will declare them a terrorist organization!

Yes, this is sand and all but some lowlives beating each other up at rallies isn't breaking news. Get some actual news to report Kyle

Like I keep saying…. the group ANTI-FA claims to protest Fascism.

But in reality they are using the historically documented physical disruptive Tactics of Nazi Germany (193#-1945) SD Brown shirts and was called FASCISM.

BTW: NAZI is a shorten name for National Socialist Party (English translation)
