Antifa Targets Another Conservative Journalist Sends Mob After Him
The day after we learned Antifa sent a hit squad to terrorize a conservative journalist and her 9-year-old daughter we’ve now learned Antifa also sent a mob after Daily Caller reporter Matt Miller.
Miller was in Washington DC covering the protests and riots in the city. Cars were torched, police were abused, and businesses were looted as extremest protested the death of George Floyd.
“The city was in complete chaos last night,” Miller, 23, told the DCNF. He and several other Daily Caller reporters covered the protests and riots through the early hours of Monday. “I think so far, last night was the most violent and contentious we’ve seen in D.C.”
Around 12:30 am Miller reports that he was approached by – what he believes – a “squeaky little Antifa-looking guy” a few blocks from the White House. Video footage captures the rioter threatening MIller, saying, “I know you’re with the Daily Caller, and you can either leave, or I’ll tell people.”
Miller asked him, “Are you threatening me?” to which the rioter responded, “I’m not threatening you — I’m just letting you know what I’m going to do.”
“I then tried to distance myself from him while still getting footage of the looters,” Miller said. “Seconds later, he yelled something like, ‘Daily Caller reporter over here, Fox News fascist!’”
Miller continued: “I was quickly surrounded by the rioters who began throwing water bottles and other projectiles at me while threatening me. I heard one say, ‘Fuck up that bitch-ass n*****!’ and other threats to that effect.”
Another protestor told him that he needs to run away as fast as he can then a group of 20 rioters chased after him.
“Hey, I’ve seen mob violence before — you need to run right now,” Miller said the protester told him. He ushered Miller down the street a bit before Miller “took off sprinting.”
“I was pursued for about two blocks before they gave up and I heard one say, ‘He’s not worth it,’” Miller said. “I ran to Dupont Circle five to six blocks away from where I was.”
“There was a convoy of about four police cars with officers outside them right in the middle of Dupont, so I walked up toward them in case I was followed,” Miller added. “When I felt safe, I called my dad and told him what happened to calm down. Then I called the other members of my team to make sure all were safe.”
What is curious to Miller is that he is unsure how the rioter knew who he was, since he was wearing a black T-shirt and mask with no identifiers from the Daily Caller.
“No journalist deserves to be treated like this while reporting,” Miller said. “And this effort to suppress the media clearly outlines intent to commit criminal action, which many of the rioters were.”
Miller said he is unsure if the rioter was Antifa.
“Antifa actively doxxes and threatens journalists, and he definitely looked the part,” Miller said of the rioter. “He looked, sounded and smelled like Antifa, but no, I can’t say for sure if that’s what he was.”
Antifa outed me to a mob of looters tonight. I sprinted 6 blocks to saftey after being surrounded and threatened by 15-20 “tough guys”. This is footage of the guy telling me he was a bout to dox me if i didnt leave. I ignored him and he shouted out who i work for. pic.twitter.com/CZdCyk8wWf
