Behind the left-wing Antifa movement that attacked Andrew Bolt

Andy Fleming, a blogger broadly connected to the Antifa movement, said he did not advocate the assault of Andrew Bolt, though he believed that was not the protesters’ original intention.He agreed with Bolt on the principle of free speech but said it was reasonable for demonstrators to heckle and disrupt public meetings and events – particularly as fringe right-wing ideas encroached further on mainstream politics.”Which doesn’t necessarily mean glitter-bombing Andrew Bolt,” Mr Fleming said.But conservatives feel they are under unjust siege. Chris Berg, research fellow at the libertarian Institute of Public Affairs and now attached to RMIT, echoed Bolt’s concerns about anti-fascists increasingly using violence against mainstream conservatives.
