Female Journalist Attacked by Antifa, Black Lives Matter Mob for 'Supporting Trump'
Far-left demonstrators wearing black bloc riot gear and carrying shields marched in NYC
A female journalist has been assaulted by a violent mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who cited her presumed "support for Trump" as motivation for the attack.
The incident occurred as a large group of far-left demonstrators wearing black bloc riot gear and carrying shields marched in the streets of New York City on Sunday.
Despite much of the march remaining mostly peaceful, violent outbursts were also witnessed.
Independent journalist Andy Ngo, who recently gave a congressional testimony as an expert witness on Antifa, shared videos on Twitter as the events unfolded.
One video shows a group of about 25 demonstrators wearing black bloc and carrying defensive shields formed up in an intersection in Manhattan to begin a march to Times Square.

The mob chanted, “Whose mother-f**king streets?
"Our mother-f**king streets” and “What’s that noise? F**k the Proud Boys” as a larger crowd of protesters assembled behind their formation.
BLM activist Joshua Potash also captured videos showing the march through the streets, according to Breitbart.
As the march proceeded it grew in numbers.

Social-media journalist Tara Szczepanski reported being assaulted by some from the rally.
She reported having an egg smashed on the back of her head.
In the video she tweeted, she is assaulted by at least two of the men.
One sprayed her with a chemical string and another appeared to strike her with a skateboard.
“She’s a f**king Nazi,” some in the crowd shouted as the mob surrounds her.
“She supports Trump, why are you protecting her.”
Then the man with the skateboard appeared to strike her.
A second video shows her being harassed and attacked by a larger group.
A person outside of camera-view reaches in and smashes an egg on the back of her head.
Footage caught across of when I was trying to get away, and I’m screaming to get off me, they hitting me with the umbrella and then knock my equipment, when I picked it up they smashed the egg and hit me in the head, then knocked my phone off. #BLM #Antifa #TrumpSupporter #NYC pic.twitter.com/JOh3t2QGeM— Polish American Brotherhood (@PoAmBrotherhood) January 10, 2021
Szczepanski rushed to nearby NYPD police officers and appears to be assaulted again — in view of the cops.
She said they “they told me to stay 6 feet from them and let me be attacked.”
In the video, a man wearing a "cop" costume and a pig mask is seen pushing a microphone in her direction.

That man is seen in another video harassing police officers trying to maintain the peace.
