As I mentioned in my July 4 post, last Saturday — June 29, 2019 — journalist Andy Ngo was seriously injured in a melée in Portland, Oregon. He is suffering from a brain haemorrhage.

Incredibly, no one in mainstream media has said much about this attack. Andy Ngo’s ‘crime’ is that he is a gay conservative.

In a short video, Stefan Molyneux explains that Antifa, Ngo’s alleged attackers, fit in the Communist mould of ‘sociopathy’, whereby any political opponents must be destroyed. Molyneux points out that Communist regimes around the world have slaughtered 250 million people over the years:

Incredibly, he got quite a few sceptical comments and denials to his tweet.

However, he is correct.

Michelle Malkin has a long Twitter thread with photos from the day’s events in Portland. They are painful to view, so I’m only going to post a few. It is hard to believe that such things are going on a) in the United States and b) with police passivity. What these attackers are doing is criminal.

He was not the only one injured that day. So was this man:

Ngo writes for a number of publications and is an editor at Quillette, which is a free-thinking multi-media magazine. On June 30, his colleagues wrote an article about his attack, ‘Antifa’s Brutal Assault on Andy Ngo Is a Wake-Up Call — for Authorities and Journalists Alike’. I highly recommend it.

Excerpts follow, emphases mine.

The article’s first paragraph ends with a reference to Communism:

as Bolshevik theorist Nikolai Bukharin put it, “In revolution, he will be victorious who cracks the other’s skull.”

Quillette describes their colleague, pointing out the irony in the attack:

Andy Ngo is an elfin, soft-spoken man. He also happens to be the gay son of Vietnamese immigrants—salient details, given Antifa’s absurd slogans about smashing the heteronormative white supremacist patriarchy.

The article reminds readers that Antifa also forced Milo Yiannopoulos to cancel a talk at Berkeley in 2017. Milo is also gay. He is British and has a black boyfriend. Again, his crime is that he is a conservative gay.

The article explains:

the reason Antifa activists were so eager to beat up our colleague Andy Ngo, a Portland resident who has been relentless in exposing the true face of Antifa. They attacked him for the simple reason that he has challenged their ideological propaganda—an Antifa tactic that any true fascist would recognize and applaud.

It points out that media attention is focussed on ‘far right’ groups, but never those on the left, like Antifa:

But this attitude of vigilance must be broadened to include all radical groups. It shouldn’t require an actual fatality to goad Portland’s mayor and police into real action. Surely, a brain hemorrhage should be enough.

We also are hoping that our fellow journalists might awaken from the delusion that Antifa is a well-intentioned band of anti-fascists with a few bad apples sullying the cause. As Quillette reported last month, a simple statistical study serves to show that the journalists who cover Antifa most often and most energetically have turned their outlets into pro-Antifa propaganda organs. Indeed, this bias is so entrenched that some left-wing media responded to our report not with introspection, but with paranoid and maudlin claims that Quillette and its authors must be secretly in league with Antifa’s fascist enemies. One might hope that the brutality inflicted on one of Quillette’s editors will help disabuse them of such conspiracy theories.

Also:

These are the same people who would (rightly) respond with howls of outrage if a journalist were assaulted by right-wing protestors. And it is appalling that anyone in our industry would excuse violence against a journalist on the basis of political orientation.

The article concludes as follows:

We wish our colleague Andy Ngo a speedy recovery. For more details about the attack he endured, interested readers can follow him on Twitter at @MrAndyNgo. Although we lament his ordeal, we salute his journalistic courage in exposing a movement that seeks to crack skulls under cover of fighting fascism.

Amazingly, many of the 700+ comments defend not only Antifa but also violent crime against political opponents!

Fortunately, there are still some decent people in this world:

I pray that Andy makes a full recovery soon. I am still wrapping my head around the fact that such a vicious ‘milkshake’ assault even happened, let alone in the United States.
