Conservative news crew assaulted at Buttigieg rally, Kaitlin Bennet calls on mayor to condemn violence

Violence against the media and women seems to be just fine with the left when the media source leans right and the woman is a conservative.

InfoWars host Kaitlin Bennet posted a video to her social media on Sunday that shows the host and her camera crew being harassed and assaulted.

Attending a Pete Buttigieg rally, Bennett and her crew were filming when two men walked into her shot. The older of the two began giving Bennett the middle finger.

“Hi, how are you?” Bennet asked after noticing the man getting closer and closer to her.

She then asked, “Do you usually treat women like that?”

The man’s only response was to continue flipping Bennett off.

As Bennett began approaching the man with her microphone, he said, “don’t get any closer to me.” It was an ironic threat since he had just approached a woman half his size from behind and then harassed her.

The man then approaches a cameraman and says directly into the camera, “get that s*** out of my face, f***face.”

Asked if he was a Buttigieg supporter, the man only replied, “We’re Americans.”

He continued telling Bennet to stop approaching him — even though he was the one who approached her and she was in no way obstructing his walking.

As Bennett and the man exchanged more words, a younger man with a shirt reading “No Body Is Illegal” came over and hit two people, including a cameraman, and appeared to at least try to push Bennett.

“Whoa, that’s assault,” someone is heard saying to the man. The man then throws a water bottle at a crew-member and pushes Bennett and her microphone away. The attacker and the older man who flipped Bennett off are then approached by someone else telling them to stop and the two men walk away from Bennett and her crew.

Bennett ends her video with a message for Buttigieg.

“I am personally calling for Pete Buttigieg himself to condemn specifically the attacks that were made on me for being simply a conservative at his rally,” she says. “Pete, condemn it, condemn the violence.”

Check out footage of the attack below:

Bennet took to her Twitter account after releasing the footage to thank the man who stepped in to defend her and to ask for more information on the two attackers since they fled the scene.

“Thank you go the gentleman at the end for stepping in to get these two away from me. Please help me identify them so I can file a police report, since they ran off after,” she wrote.

Violence on the right is constantly a topic of conversation with leftist media heads despite there being so few examples of this actual violence occurring or even being condoned. Yet, there are stories nearly every day about conservatives being assaulted simply for holding their specific political beliefs. Despite the violence actually happening, the mainstream media is allergic to giving attention to conservatives in this regard.

This attack should not be defined in political terms, but that’s what leftists do. In reality, it is an attack on a woman and a journalist. Buttigieg should absolutely condemn such actions because they are never forgivable no matter what political beliefs you hide behind.
