Black Conservative Journalist Stabbed During Riot in Portland

In the 62nd consecutive night of far-left violence and terrorism in Portland, Oregon, a black conservative journalist was stabbed by a rioter for attempting to film the violence, according to Fox News.

Andrew Duncomb, who goes by the alias of “Black Rebel” on Twitter, arrived in Portland in an effort to film the chaos on the ground, so that he could prove that “it wasn’t the feds creating the problem” as the media has made it out to be.

Shortly after arriving and meeting up with several friends, he noticed that someone was stalking him. In an interview with The Oregonian, Duncomb says he eventually confronted the man, walking up to him and asking why he was following them, only for the man to turn around and stab him. Duncomb had handed his camera to one of his friends moments earlier, recording the entire attack. Duncomb was taken to OHSU Hospital to be treated for his injuries, where he was released on Sunday.

“I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist,” Duncomb said to the paper. He said that far-left activists who were aware of who he was had notified rioters in the area that Duncomb would be arriving, which led to the attack.

Duncomb’s friends followed the attacker as he tried to leave, and he was eventually arrested by the police and identified as 43-year-old David Blake Hampe. Hampe falsely tried to claim upon his arrest that Duncomb attempted to choke him, although the video evidence clearly disproves this. Hampe has been charged with second-degree assault and is still in jail on a bond of $250,000.
