Apparently, #WhitePedophileLivesMatter most …
A convicted pedophile who was arrested in late July for stabbing a conservative black journalist in Portland, Oregon, was reportedly released from jail Thursday, allegedly thanks to the help of the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe.
While Andrew Duncomb, 25, a videographer known as the “Black Rebel,” was in Portland on July 25th documenting the city’s never-ending riots, a man later identified as Blake David Hampe, a convicted pedophile, began following his group.
In response, Duncomb put his arm around Hampe’s shoulder and asked him why exactly he was following the group. This provoked Hampe into stabbing Duncomb in the back. Watch the altercation below (*Graphic content):
The attack hit no major organs but did reportedly penetrate Duncomb’s lower flank by seven inches and put him in the hospital for a couple of days.
Hampe was charged with felony assault and booked on a $250,000 bond.

Duncomb maintains that he was targeted specifically for being a black conservative journalist.
“I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist. My main goal was to show that it wasn’t just the feds creating the problems,” he bluntly told the media following the altercation.
The incident occurred around the time that President Donald Trump ordered federal authorities to Portland to quell the rioting and the media subsequently began falsely claiming that the riots, which had been going on for weeks, were somehow the result of the Trump administration’s intervention in the far-left city.
In an update posted late Thursday evening, Duncomb revealed that his attacker has been bailed out of jail and is running the streets again:

Renowned investigative journalist Andy Ngo believes Hampe may have been bailed out by the PDX Protest Bail Fund, a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe.
Launched amid the Portland riots, the campaign uses collected money to bail out rioters, looters and other criminals. As of Friday, the fund had collected over $1.3 million.
The antifa stabbing suspect was bailed out today. I assume that he (like the other violent criminal suspects) was bailed out by antifa bail group who raised $1.3m on GoFundMe. https://t.co/cvcHWJGj7E

It’s not clear why GoFundMe allows the fund to continue given its treatment of Dawit Kelete, the yet-unconvicted black man who accidentally rammed his vehicle into rioters who’d been standing in the middle of a Seattle highway in early June.
Following the incident, Kelete started a GoFundMe to raise money for his legal expenses, yet the site promptly deleted the campaign.
@gofundme has suspended Dawit Kelete’s GoFundMe due to alleged violation of its Terms of Service. There’s been no addition comment provided by the company. Ironically, they are promoting their justice and equality fund. Dawit, a BLM supporter, deserves the right to a fair trial! pic.twitter.com/f09a5cBjhD

To reiterate – there has been NO violation of @gofundme‘s ToS. The suspension of Dawit’s campaign shows egregious bias. You can donate directly to the Kelete family via: CashApp: KeleteYodit, Venmo: KeleteYo, PayPal: Yoditcoco, Bitcoin Wallet: 1M6wsk59m27nHLMfEd3RnzmcpGY5Vrs5Sn

Yet the PDX Protest Bail Fund still remains active. If you’d like to report it and point the double standards out to GoFundMe, use the “Report fundraiser” button near the bottom of the campaign’s page:
Assuming it’s true that the group behind the PDX Protest Bail Fund bailed out Hampe, it means GoFundMe apparently has no qualms about money being raised to benefit convicted pedophiles.
“A New Hampshire man was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court to more than three years in prison for possession of child pornography. U.S. District Judge John Woodcock sentenced Blake D. Hampe, 30, of Manchester, N.H., to 41 months in prison and 10 years of supervised release after he completes his prison term,” the Bangor Daily News reported in 2008.
“He faced up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Hampe pleaded guilty in October to having child pornography on his laptop. He has been jailed since, awaiting sentencing.”
While it hasn’t been “confirmed” that the Blake D. Hampe cited by the Bangor Daily News is the same Blake David Hampe that stabbed Duncomb, the evidence does point to them being the same person:
Records show that Blake David Hampe is currently 43. According to the Bangor Daily News’ 2008 report, D. Hampe was 30. That’s an age difference of 13. Similarly, the records below were filed in 2020, or roughly 12 years after the Daily News ran its report:
What remains unclear is whether Hampe will ever even be held accountable for his attack on Duncomb, given Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s announcement this Tuesday that most of Portland’s rioters won’t be charged:
