The militant hard-left group Antifa has placed a bounty on the head of an African-American conservative known as “Black Rebel,” according to several news reports breaking today.
Black Rebel was one of many activists in New Orleans defending a monument of Jefferson Davis.
Hundreds of soldiers from Antifa descended on New Orleans to protest the Confederate monument, and possibly attempt to tear it down.
Andrew Duncomb, also known as “Black Rebel,” has been an outspoken advocate of the Confederate flag and Confederate monuments.
According to a video post on Duncomb’s Facebook page and several other sources, Antifa placed a bounty on the man, who is now on the run and hoping to avoid an assassination attempt.
The outspoken Afro-American’s Facebook post was also littered with threats in comments, with one Antifa member wondering out-loud if Black Rebel’s house and family are open to attack while he is in hiding.
