Antifa Thug Unmasked and Jailed for Attacking Trump Supporter
David Campbell, 32, gets 18 months in jail for attacking 56-year-old man
A vicious Antifa thug, who violently assaulted a Trump supporter outside a conservative event, has been jailed for 18 months for the attack.
32-year-old David Campbell, stripped of the cowardly mask typically worn by Antifa mobs, pleaded guilty in September to two counts of felony assault.
Campbell attacked a 56-year-old man as he left the A Night for Freedom event in New York City, organized by conservative activist Mike Cernovich.
After the victim left the party on January 20, 2018, Campbell followed him from the Hell’s Kitchen venue and punched and choked him, according to Manhattan prosecutors.
Campbell was among a mob of around 80 far-left Antifa protesters who were demonstrating outside the event.
“Now that the criminal case is closed, I will also be taking legal action against Mr. Campbell and his confederates. It is time to find out who is funding Antifa,” Cernovich said after Campbell took a plea deal.
According to the Daily Mail, Campbell appeared shocked when the judge read out the sentence.
Tearful friends of Campbell embraced one another in the corridor after he was led away in handcuffs.
Witnesses to the assault said the victim appeared to strike his head on the curb on his way down to the ground and a 911 call claimed he was in a state of cardiac arrest.
The victim, whose identity was never released, was taken in an ambulance to Bellevue Hospital where doctors said he was in a stable condition.
Campbell was arrested at the scene and charged with assault for strangulation, possession of a weapon, assault of a police officer, resisting arrest and loitering.
Two other party-goers were also hurt in the brawl.
One person was taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke's, while another went to Bellevue.
Their conditions and involvement in the gala were not known.
Cernovich later emerged from the event and confronted the group of demonstrators, calling them "f***ing terrorists."
"When the Proud Boys got into a street fight with Antifa members, it was a nationwide story," Cernovich told The NY Post earlier this month.
"The Mayor and AG tweeted about the street fight.
"When Antifa attacked a 56-year-old man, silence from the press."
Cernovich says he will now pursue legal action to "find out who is funding Antifa."
