A right wing party event in midtown, Manhattan Saturday night was plagued by violence outside the venue. A protester with a group of Antifa (anti-fascist) activists punched and choked a Trump supporter who was leaving the Night for Freedom event held at the FREQ club on West 50th Street. The New York Daily News reports the assailant was arrested and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition. Authorities say two other people were injured in the brawl. Event organizer Mike Cernovich later tweeted that Chelsea Manning made a surprise visit to the club.
Cernovich said he shook Manning's hand and that everyone is welcome to attend the parties he organizes while Manning insisted she was crashing the event.
