Christian Author Eric Metaxas Sucker-Punches Passing Antifa Protestor

Christian author Eric Metaxas, writer of biographies of William Wilberforce and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, took it upon himself to punch a passing protester who was shouting “F— You, F— Trump” to participants who were leaving the Republican National Convention, and then ran away when confronted by the man he assaulted.

After the punch was thrown, the obstreperous victim confronted Metaxas, shouting:

You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony. You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony. You just attacked me bro, that’s a felony.

Harrington was quickly apprehended by law enforcement and pulled aside, but sought to explain to them that he was the victim, and not the other way around.

“Bro, I did not touch that man. Are you serious? I was utilizing my first amendment. I did not touch that man you guys. Seriously? Bro, that Dude punched me off my bike. That’s why my Bike’s in the street.”

There has been no comment yet from Metaxas and no charges have been filed at this time. According to an Instagram post by Harrington, he does not intend to press charges.

Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at

But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.

Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year.
