Conservative journo on way to Trump event attacked from behind by 2 fascists, but this guy fights back!

The Trump-hating, alt left, antifa movement can be just as bad down under as it is here.

Conservative Australian commentator Andrew Bolt was approached from behind and attacked by two masked thugs in the streets of Melbourne in broad daylight Tuesday. The action was caught on both a security camera and by someone who was apparently a companion of the attackers and took footage of the scuffle.

Bolt, who’s a columnist for the Melbourne-based Herald Sun and hosts The Bolt Report each weeknight for Sky News, reported that he was helping an author launch a new book on President Donald Trump when the attack began.

Although Bolt is seen being hit in the back of the head, pushed into a pole and knocked over chairs and tables outside a restaurant, it’s the hoodlums who come out the worst for wear.

Apparently no one told these two cowards that conservatives don’t just lie down and take it — they tend to fight back.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported:

The assault took place on Tuesday at the launch of The Art of the Impossible, a book on Donald Trump and the 2016 US presidential election campaign by RMIT associate professor Steve Kates.

On Tuesday night Victoria Police confirmed it was investigating the “incident” and was searching for three men: the two assailants plus a third man who was wielding a camera and “appeared to be filming or taking photos”.


Bolt told Fairfax Media Thursday that he’d had it with being targeted by the left. Accordingly, he would continue to pursue the matter, and if the thugs are found, demand retribution.

“I’m not a brawler,” he said. “I had one bruised knuckle and I don’t care a stuff about it. I had a suit ruined and I want every cent of that paid back. And I want a hefty donation to a charity of my choice.”

One could assume that the charity would have nothing to do with some nonsense like manmade global warming or coddling Islamic terrorists.

Bolt told the Fairfax Media that he’s been the subject of attack by the Australian antifa movement for a long time.

“I am sick of people trying to intimidate me, trying to threaten me. I’m sick of the threats on my life and my reputation. I’m sick of being sued and bullied and I’m not going to take it. I’m just not going to take it,” he said.

“We should be free to have a debate and to walk down the street without fear of being attacked.”

But the left has little interest in meaningful debate.

“The right to free speech has to be better protected – everywhere but particularly in Melbourne. It is ridiculous how dangerous it is for conservatives in this town to speak out,” Bolt continued.

“If you don’t like what I say just prove me wrong,” Bolt concluded. “Don’t threaten me, don’t threaten my house, don’t threaten my family, don’t abuse me – just argue with me.”
