Progressive Activists Beaten and Hospitalized as Trump-Era Political Violence Intensifies

Two progressive activists were hospitalized Sunday night after being beaten and, in one case, thrown down a flight of stairs at an event hosted by conservative James O'Keefe, a self-styled investigative journalist and an established fraud. Both were released Monday with minor injuries; police have made no arrests.

The violence ensued when Ryan Clayton, who blogs for The Huffington Post, took the mic for questions at a "Friends of Abe" event in midtown Manhattan. Clayton runs Americans Take Action, which recently took part in a counter-sting operation against O'Keefe's Project Veritas. The former had begun singing before he was identified, grabbed from behind and put in a chokehold. "I felt a pop-pop-pop-pop-pop, and then there was nothing left to pop," he said. "There was a moment I thought, 'Oh God, this is how I die.' Last night was the most terrifying night of my life."

Clayton was sent tumbling down a staircase before his fall was broken by a man standing mid-way down. He claims he was kicked in the head.

Jason Charter, the other activist injured in the melee, reports that he too was assaulted and that his camera, phone, wallet, glasses and tie were all stolen. "Somebody looked at my neck tie and I was thrown to the ground," he said. "I had a foot placed on my neck and held down. My lower right abdomen is very sore from the kicks."

Neil Diamond - America

When can we make America great again like the America that inspired this song?

Trump strategy is to cast doubt on the press tells me all kinds of shit is going to hit the fan

down the pike. I don't see why they would think it's a good strategy otherwise. His approval is going to be stuck in the upper 30's with the continual confrontational approach. This administration is off to the worst start perhaps in American history.

If Trump is indicted can't they get a warrant to see his taxes?

Seems that would be out best bet at this point.
