VIDEO: Antifa Attacks CBS Journalist in Richmond

The assault came a day after a white supremacist domestic terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia.

A day after a white supremacist used a car to murder a peaceful protester in a domestic terror attack, left-wing protesters attacked a CBS photojournalist at a demonstration in Richmond, Virginia.

The event was caught on video:

As the journalist was filming a crowd chanting, “We’re here, we’re gay, we fight the KKK,” protesters confronted the videographer with a flag reading “Antifa.”

Antifa, short for antifascist, is a group described by The Atlantic as a powerful movement whose “violent tactics have elicited substantial support from the mainstream left.”

“Stop filming, bro,” one of the protesters told the journalist.

When the reporter refused to comply, the protesters hit him with the flag pole and knocked his camera to the ground.

According to CBS Richmond reporter Laura French, the journalist required stitches to patch up his wounds:
