Did Andy Ngo get what he deserved? By Dominic Green.
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’.
Andy received cuts and bruises to his face and head, including a torn earlobe, and had thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment smashed or stolen. He was taken to the local hospital, where it was discovered he had a small bleed to his brain and, as a result, he was kept in overnight.
‘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’.
One gets the impression that Antifa rules Portland with the same impunity that the Ku Klux Klan ruled Birmingham in the 1960s. Do they actually have police in Portland? Do they have functioning government there?
If there is a prominent Democrat who has criticized Antifa, I am not aware of it. That would be a good question for the next presidential debate.
Worse, some Democrats have actually endorsed the fascist group, like Keith Ellison, the Attorney General of Minnesota.
Antifa are the new KKK:
UPDATE: Masked Antifa Thugs Hospitalise Journalist. Police baffled. By Lucas Rosas.
Despite the assault happening in broad daylight in front of numerous cameras police are yet to arrest any of his attackers.
That’s right, yet again masked Antifa thugs hospitalised a man simply for taking footage of them and the authorities stood by and did nothing. …
Adam Kelly was attempting to help an old man being beaten bloody by a mob of Antifa at the same event where Andy Ngo was hospitalised:
