BLM protester who allegedly assaulted Trump supporters in DC reportedly journalism student
A female Black Lives Matter protester who viciously assaulted Trump supporters at the “Million MAGA March” is reportedly a journalism student at Howard University. Brittany S. McAlister, 29, was caught on video punching and kicking men and women numerous times according to The Post Millenial. She is reportedly a third-year journalism student at Howard University and works as a freelance journalist.
McAlister can allegedly be seen in one confrontation kicking an unconscious man who had been knocked out by 39-year-old Kenneth Wayne Deberry. Deberry was one of four people the city’s Metropolitan Police Department arrested for disorderly conduct. McAlister has not been taken into custody yet although a number of others have been for the assaults.
President Trump retweeted the video to his followers.
In another video, McAlister runs up and punches a woman in the back of the head, runs away, comes back, and does it again. She then takes off.

An anti-Trump political organization called Refuse Fascism tagged McAlister in a video where she spoke at Black Lives Matter Plaza. However, that tweet has since been deleted and McAlister’s accounts have been deactivated. She also removed her personal website where she described herself as a “freelance backpack journalist” who runs the magazine, Pawzels.
Refuse Fascism describes themselves this way on their website: “RefuseFascism.org is a movement of people coming from diverse perspectives, united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet, and that it is our responsibility to drive them from power through non-violent protests that grow every day until our demand is met. This means working and organizing with all our creativity and determination to bring thousands, eventually millions of people into the streets of cities and towns, to demand: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”
The march was relatively peaceful for the first few hours of the gathering, but there were a number of altercations and numerous arrests were made especially later in the day. Tens of thousands of Trump supporters showed up in D.C. for the march. Organized protesters set upon a number of marchers and left them injured and bloody and some of them lying in the street.
Twenty-one people were eventually arrested for a number of charges, including assault and weapons possession, officials stated.
Two officers were injured and several firearms were recovered. D.C. has very strict gun laws, and the police were on the lookout for weapons violations.
Trump told the police officers on Twitter to not “hold back.”
“ANTIFA SCUM ran for the hills today when they tried attacking the people at the Trump Rally, because those people aggressively fought back,” he wrote. “Antifa waited until tonight, when 99% were gone, to attack innocent #MAGA People. DC Police, get going — do your job and don’t hold back!!!”
The president also slammed Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser, claiming she was not “doing her job,” and accused the media of being “silent.”
Radical Left ANTIFA SCUM was easily rebuffed today by the big D.C. MAGA Rally crowd, only to return at night, after 99% of the crowd had left, to assault elderly people and families. Police got there, but late. Mayor is not doing her job!
