A Trump supporter was brutally beaten and left with broken facial bones after an attack by 7 to 10 Antifa members. Matthias Thorpe, 28, was left hospitalized as he struggled for his life after the gang style attack. Matthais is a co-organizer of the Boston Free Speech Rally which took place in Boston on August 19, 2017.
Now imagine, Matthais, a Trump supporter shows up at Harvard Coop bookstore which is on Harvard University campus located in Dartmouth, MA to hear a lecture by Mark Bray. Who is Mark Bray? He is a former Occupy Wall Street organizer and visiting lecturer at Dartmouth College. Bray is also author of the book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook.
As per the Washington Post, this desire of the far left radicals like Antifa has been an on going issue. “Masked antifa activists in Berkeley, Calif., overran a police barricade and attacked right-wing demonstrators in Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park; 13 people were arrested. And don’t forget the sucker punch of white nationalist Richard Spencer in Washington on the day of Trump’s inauguration. When Bray calls his book “an unabashedly partisan call to arms,” it’s not just a metaphor.”
Matthias attends the lecture and had no intention “to shut down the event or disrupt it, but did ask meaningful questions about the implications of communism — such as asking if fascism that killed six million people is worse than communist fascism which has killed approximately 100 million people. “He never answered my question, but people in the crowd recognized me because my picture was on one of the Antifa websites,” Thorpe told Gateway Pundit. The group was eventually thrown out of the event as they lightly trolled towards the end, chanting “Trump” and “build the wall.” Once outside, Thorpe said that he and his friends stuck around to attempt to have discussions with others who had attended. He stated that he had a few interesting interactions and everything was going reasonably well. Around 9 p.m., as he was planning to leave, a woman walked out of the Coop, pointed to him and began shouting that he is a “Nazi.” “Before I could even respond this girl tries to hit me, so I defend myself and all of a sudden someone came up behind me and grabbed me. There was a whole swarm of them around me punching me in the face,” Thorpe said. Thorpe was being assaulted with the fists of a mob that he believes was “at least 7-10 people.” His assailants were not wearing masks. Once he broke free, the group began mocking him and shouting things like “run Nazi, run,” leading to him running back into the group and throwing a punch. “The group came in and swarmed me again and began punching me over and over,” he said. Reported by the Gateway Pundit who broke the story.

Last month, after the failure of the big Antfa “coup” day, to try and gain control of the White House. Antifa is still trying to gain momentum across our college campuses. To read more about that failed attempt of the November 4th uprising click HERE.
The antics of the left are ramping up and Matthais Thorpe stated per the Gateway Pundit:
“I’m looking at this as a terrorist attack to be honest. It was a politically motivated attack, which I think in definition would be a domestic terrorist attack. I am going to try to go forward with prosecuting these people as much as I can, but I need to find video from the event,” Thorpe stated.
If anyone can help him out, please post in comments below and Dagger News will get the video to him. Do you think Antifa should be categorized as a domestic terrorist group and that the FBI should investigate them more thoroughly? Leave your thoughts in comments below.
