BlazeTV host and reporter Elijah Schaffer that covered the Black Lives Matter protest in Rochester last Saturday night. While covering the protests that escalated into civil unrest where at least one officer was injured and an unlawful assembly was declared, Schaffer was physically assaulted by an alleged Black Lives Matter supporter who was falsely posing as a member of the press.

“Fake press intentionally started a rumor I was a white supremacist to try to get me killed:” Elijah Schaffer wrote on Twitter. “They turned the crowd on me & started surrounding me At the same time, police saw the escalation & moved in Fake press are terrorists & put us all in danger.”

“I’m really growing weary of this violent ‘fake Antifa/BLM press. They work in conjunction to abuse and endanger real reporters doing their job They use fascist tactics and ‘dress up’ as press to avoid police scrutiny Then they attack you and police don’t know what to do.”
