Journalist Andy Ngo beaten up by antifa activists at Portland protest

When Trump is fascist KKK and the enemy of the press, it’s okay to beat up journalists and give them brain hemorrhage.

When is it fine for an all-white gang to assault an Asian American in broad daylight? When he’s a conservative journalist. Where is it fine to do this? Portland, Ore. How do you do it? By all means necessary.

The footage of Andy Ngo being ganged up on by black-clad, masked protesters in Portland shows the truth behind the cool slogans of radical chic. Ngo, a physically slight man, is punched in the face, has what appears to be a rock thrown at him when his back is turned, and is doused in milkshakes that, Portland police believe, contained cement mix, which can cause skin burns. It looks like a racist assault, but it’s alright, because they’re attacking a ‘fascist’.

‘What’s the matter with Portland?’ Andy Ngo asked in Spectator USA last November, after being insulted and intimidated while he tried to cover an earlier Antifa demo. ‘Why did I, a Vietnamese-American gay journalist, receive this reaction from a self-described anti-racist social justice movement?’

The answer, Ngo wrote, was that he has tried to report honestly on Antifa — which, as Ngo wrote last year, is a ‘far-left movement of communists, socialists, and anarchists who agitate for revolution’, and who revel in ritualized violence against their enemies. If Ngo is not with them, he must be against them. And if he is against them, then he is a ‘fascist’ and deserves what he gets.

This is the logic of ‘By all means necessary’, the moronic line coined by Malcolm X, and familiar from the Malcolm X t-shirts issued to liberal white Humanities’ students on their first day in graduate school. Typically, the t-shirt shows Malcolm X, carbine in hand, peering out of a window as he tries to protect his family. Not against white racists, but against his fellow radicals, the sectarians of the Nation of Islam who would eventually murder him.

‘Looks you like were attacked by a small family of pigeons,’ quippedParker Molloy of ‘the nation’s premier progressive watchdog’, Media Matters. Looking forward to more one-liners from her about the KKK.

Charlie Warzel, who writes for the New York Times , says that ‘the situation is fucked’ — he won’t say who by — and that ‘violence should be unacceptable’. Not ‘violence is unacceptable’, but violence is conditionally unacceptable — which is to say, acceptable under certain circumstances.

‘There are also serious risks involved with putting yourself in volatile situations,’ Warzel concludes. ‘Any journalist should know that.’ So Andy Ngo got what was coming because he wasn’t enough of a journalist for the legacy media, and was asking for it because he went to a bar in a short skirt.

C.J. Werleman, who has been accused of plagiarism in the past, falsely accused Ngo on Twitter of being ‘one of the leading amplifiers of Islamophobia’ in the US and, again falsely, accused Ngo, who happens to be the son of a Vietnamese immigrant, of participating in ‘white supremacist instigated violence’. The implication being that Ngo got what was coming to him.

Werleman also accuses Ngo of promoting Proud Boys events. The basis for this accusation is a tweet in which Ngo reported that he had been informed of the Proud Boys’ march: ‘Source w/knowledge tells me Proud Boys hosting event in downtown Portland on June 29 — almost exactly one year after the “Battle of Portland.” Unknown if antifa will show up to fight again.’ Ngo attached a clip showing violence from last year’s rally.

Rather than ‘promoting’ the Proud Boys, Ngo’s tweet is a model of digital journalism: cultivating sources in traditional fashion, and making as value-neutral a report as he can — rather than editorializing or speaking down in the manner of the Times or the Post , or simply making it up, which is what Werleman is doing here.

Werleman is shooting the messenger. This, figuratively, is what the thugs in Portland did to Ngo on Saturday. Literally, it is what will happen to an ‘enemy’ journalist at some point in the near future if Antifa are allowed to continue carrying their radical play-acting into the streets. The police in Portland have previously been accused of indulging Antifa while taking a tougher line on their antagonists, the bizarre straight-Pride cult that is the Proud Boys. Ngo has previously documented that Antifa members in Portland have threatened and attacked him for his reportage.

Intensification is in the nature of political violence, for it is sacrificial in logic, and ever higher levels of violence are required to sustain the buzz. Imagine the outcry if a CNN anchor had been attacked by the Proud Boys or some other group from the hooligan fringe of the right — a fringe group that had been endorsed by Fox anchors, as CNN’s Chris Cuomo has supported Antifa. Then ask yourself if it seems logical that Ngo would be attacked, and that left-wing media would rush to discredit him.

The answer is yes to both questions. This is what we get when the media delegitimizes the opposition, and when it indulges violent radicals who demonize their ideological enemies as ‘fascist’. From there, it’s only a small step to silencing them by all means necessary. This has become a fact of modern American life, though it is by no means necessary, or even realistic. Meanwhile, journalists like Andy Ngo deserve all our support for their necessary reportage.

Below is why Andy is a target of Antifa for a long time:

Powerful. Incredible. Asian white-supremacists be damned.


He was attacked with silly string and milkshakes.

That leaves bloody cuts on he face and brain bleeding. Ah yes, leftism is a powerful brain disease.


Oh please. There is no telling when or who inflicted any alleged injuries. I saw him get “attacked” with milkshakes and silly string.

You are mistaken. That was your boy Jussie who put a silly string around his neck.


Pretty convenient to ignore the punch at the start of the video. And of course, there is no telling who did it, bc those cowards were masked. At least the police in portland is doing their job.

Also, those “milkshakes” have quick-drying cements in them, either will cause blunt dmage or chemical burns when thrown.

I would like to see Jim Acosta or/and Don Lemon at one of those rallies. I can bet that Don doesn’t make it out alive. Lol

Oh - maybe I should start carrying around some milkshakes and when I see some frail little leftist minding his own business I’ll make sure I deliver the milkshake to his face with enough force to drop a full grown 250lb man who was looking for a fight.

Trust me, you leftists don’t want a guy like me handing out milkshakes to you pansies.

Doing what you’re talking about means that you’re trying to hurt people. All I saw was a provocateur get hit with a milkshake and sprayed with silly string. I think worse things happen in schoolyards all across America.

Maybe the right should grow a backbone.

And all I see is you willing defend the action of violent leftist thugs, like the rest of the msm outlined in this thread, while crying wolf. But by all mean, continue with your ideology: youre alienating the moderate base the DNC needs (but doesnt admit) to win the election.

Can you show me where in the video he sustained these injuries because all I saw was him getting hit with a milkshake and some silly string.

I can, I could, and I did, if you can read.

I don’t need to read some long and drawn out right wing nonsense. I watched the video that was posted detailing the alleged incident. What I saw in the video is not consistent with the injuries this phony is claiming.

Ngo was punched at 0:00 to 0:02 time mark of the video. Again, it was not “some long and drawn out right wing nonsense”.

It doesn’t appear to me that he was actually struck. It looks like he ducked out of the way and put his hands up for cover. Again, I don’t see any evidence of him being assaulted at all. This is all completely fabricated to advance the right-wing agenda.

I am sure the tweet from the Portland Police is also fabricated claim to advance the ring-wing agenda as well, which you again conveniently ignore to advance your ideology .

As you well know the police have to investigate every claim that they receive. I’m fairly sure there were some racist Neo-Nazi right wingers in the crowd mixing cement with milkshakes and pretending to be a part of the peaceful anti-fascist protest.

You didn’t see it so it didn’t happen.

Well I guess that settles it.
