Police stood by and watched while masked Antifa protesters physically and verbally assaulted BlazeTV contributor Elijah Schaffer during a protest Sunday in Seattle, Washington.
Schaffer, host of “Slightly Offens*ve,” was forcefully struck in the head when he attempted to stop a group of Antifa counterprotesters from grabbing a camera held by one of his producers. The protesters then surrounded Schaffer and his producer and barraged them with curses and threatening verbal abuse.
