A Black videographer got stabbed at the Portland protests, and he says it is because he is pro-Trump

“I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist”, Duncomb said

A Black conservative videographer says he was stabbed because of his conservative views during the Portland protests over the weekend, after he released footage of the encounter.

Andrew Duncomb, 25, is known for his vocal support of the Confederate flag and monuments, and regularly films demonstrations across the country under the moniker “Black Rebel.”

Duncomb told The Oregonian newspaper that he arrived in Portland last Friday to cover the protests that have been happening in the city nightly for more than two months.

The protests that started as Black Lives Matter demonstrations morphed into anti-Trump gatherings when the president sent federal agents to the city in early July to quell the unrest.

Federal agents operating in the city have been heavily criticized for using tear gas and grabbing protesters off the street to take them away in unmarked vehicles.

Duncomb, a Trump supporter, told The Oregonian he came to the city to “show that it wasn’t just the feds creating the problems”.
