WATCH: Queers Against Racism protest LGBTrump event at RNC — ASSAULT Rebel reporter for asking questions

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

Protests at last week's Republican National Convention were mostly subdued, but I found myself on the receiving end of an assault from one group of demonstrators.

The group, calling itself Queers Against Racism, was protesting outside the "Wake Up" event by LGBTrump--featuring Milo, Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders, among other speakers. The main event was aimed at telling the gay community--and the left, more broadly--that the real threat to LGBT people and their freedoms has nothing to do with wedding cakes or gender neutral washrooms, but rather radical Islam.

From gays being executed in the Middle East to a radical Muslim gunning down gays in Orlando, the cultural divide is stark.

Instead of recognizing this, however, the demonstrators wanted people to know that their "grief is not a catalyst for xenophobia" and that "only self hating gays love Trump." Further to that, the group's pamphlet said that Orlando was Donald Trump's and Mike Pence's fault.

"What happened in Orlando is a result of a homegrown culture of homophobia promoted by Trump, Pence and conservatives for decades," it read.

When I attempted to ask them questions about their cause, they ignored me. When I lingered, I was spat on, coughed on, chanted at, and attacked. Protesters used their "queers against racism" banner--a painted bed sheet--to wrap around my face and body in a failed attempt to physically remove me from their 'safe space.'

All because I was asking questions as basic as "what are you here protesting?".

Listen to the audio of the assault, and why the actual event was such an important one.

Deborah — Does a stun gun have any effect on people that are already stunned ?

It likely won’t have any effect on those who are too stunned to see, that they are cheering their own demise, by shutting down freedom of speech! I would prefer that he carried a machine gun, but given that isn’t possible, I think all Rebel reporters need to have security, to protect them from these freaks! Since our lily livered police are on political leashes, and are just glorified security guards who protect the lawless not the law abiding.

I really wish that Andrew would not take material from his radio show, and repackage it onto the rebel. It is just so lazy on his part.

Yeah Orlando was Trumps fault, at least it may seem that way if you are brainwashed.

The second they put a hand on you it was assault. The second they put a sheet over you its illegal confinement.

Too bad the police don’t know what their job is all about.

Ezra can have another fund raiser to send gays to Syria and N Iraq so they can be with their buddies!

No one said LGBTQUFOX2*# are smart, stop trying to prove they are any different than the other leftist sh*t for brains. Rebel should STOP pandering to the supposed 1% of these confused morons. They’ve had their time, they’ve got their damn rights, it’s time to back off and report what is important to the 99% of the rest of us. Its time to bury the gay rights agenda, it should not exist anymore.

Andrew, I don’t envy having your job, can’t be easy if you’re a bona fide journalist like you are. Why don’t these queers wrap themselves up in barbed wire, that will surely be a safe place.

Great work Andrew!!

Once again the Champions of Diversity reject diversity of opinion.

The hate is all the Left. The Right is the cure. Right or wrong, that should be an easy choice.

Six foot, two hundred pound, blonde, hazel eyed, White, heterosexual, conservative, Christian, male lives matter too, anyone want to join?
Maybe we can go to a kangaroo court and get money – the claim doesn’t have to make sense, nor does it cost anything to bring a claim.
Or maybe hit TIDES/Soros up for some money – George loves funding anything anti-Canadian.
Or get funded by ‘the government’ – they have lots of money to throw away.
My feelings, feel hurt already…hey this social justice warrior thing is pretty easy.

That was sickening. They sounded like a group of gr 7 & 8 devil worshippers with all that chanting and screaming. You should have thrown holy water at them to make them writhe and burst into flames. Lol.

Lefties get violent when challenged…..even the queers. What a bunch of morons! Muslims would exterminate them in a heartbeat…..or as long as it would take to cut off the head, hang, or throw off a tall building!

You should carry a stun gun with you!

The question has to be asked, “How many of those Queers Against Racism were actually homosexual?”

I tend to doubt a significant number were. Now isn’t that queer?
commented 2016-07-26 15:21:13 -0400
The left are masters at stirring up race and sex issues during an election so they can use it to try and smear the right. Example Jake Tapper telling Donald Trump David Duke had endorsed him. That was a lie but worked well to stoke the whole Trump bigotry narrative they could and have used to fire up the the race issue. I have seen them use this same tactic countless times on an easily duped public.

If you don’t have a camera man when going into these crowds you should have. It could have been some good footage. Just not the same impact without.
commented 2016-07-26 15:08:20 -0400
Queers Against Racism is surely an intelligence disabled group of perverts. They could learn a great deal if the shut up their primitive moronic chanting and listened to Milo, Pamela and Geert. But, no. They just want to behave like mentally retarded savages. O what fools these social justice warriors be!
To call them morons would be too kind.

Please note, that the bolshie snowflakes, twinks and SJWs NEVER will attack without:

A) a mob
B) police protection to save them from their victim’s response.

It’s infantile acting out – sticking their tongue out at the grown ups.
