A conservative columnist for the Australia Herald Sun beat back masked antifa men who attacked him outside a speaking engagement Tuesday in Melbourne.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, footage taken by the attackers shows men in hoods ambushing Andrew Bolt from behind outside a book party where he gave remarks. They throw shaving cream and glitter at his head.
The video came out Thursday.
He tried to fight off his assailants, before being thrown onto nearby chairs. After picking himself up, he begins to punch both men until they turn and run.
The columnist was outside the launch party for Steve Kates’s book “The Art of the Impossible,” which is about the 2016 election of Donald Trump.
One man is heard in the background yelling, “what are you doing?” and “go away.”
Bolt told Fairfax Media Thursday he was tired of being attacked for his conservative views and wants to see his attackers face justice.
