There’s a lot of updates on the Andy Ngo attack story. First of all, it looks like he is suffering from a major injury as a result of the vicious attack by cowardly antifa scumbags, this comes from his legal representative:
Update to @MrAndyNgo supporters — he is being admitted to the hospital overnight as a result of a brain bleed. You sick “journalists” and other hacks gloating about this should be ashamed. As for the rest, please pray for @MrAndyNgo who we need back in health — brave man!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️ https://t.co/XYVy4EbIzv— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) June 30, 2019
Some on the left doubted that the injuries could be so bad, because they say he was just hit by milkshakes.
Here’s the issue with that:
Police have received information that some of the milkshakes thrown today during the demonstration contained quick-drying cement. We are encouraging anyone hit with a substance today to report it to police.— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 29, 2019
Some think they did it to include caustic chemicals that could irritate your skin, but others point out that if it hardened, it could really do some damage. That could explain the injuries to Ngo.
Some are defending the attack by trying to act like it’s not a big deal:
Thread from a great journalist who routinely embeds w/ hate groups. This doesn't discount that the situation is fucked and that violence should be unacceptable. But there are also serious risks involved with putting yourself in volatile situations. Any journalist should know that https://t.co/KPmaiSrmoM— Charlie Warzel (@cwarzel) June 30, 2019
That guy’s tweet isn’t showing up because he eventually protected ALL his tweets. Here’s a screenshot of the start of his pro-attack defense:

This HuffPost writer @letsgomathias deleted this tweet celebrating Antifa’s “milkshaking” of a journalist.— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) June 30, 2019
The milkshakes were lined with quicklime/quick dry concrete mix and produce chemical burns, in addition to being heavy. pic.twitter.com/orQi1ikruv
Others are saying, well he deserved it:
Andy Ngo is an editor at @Quillette, which just reprinted a discredited hoax about journalists being secret antifascists.— AntiFash Gordon (@AntiFashGordon) June 29, 2019
It inspired an Atomwaffen affiliate to release a kill list of journalists.
You might wanna rethink that support for Andy Ngo, @jaketapper. https://t.co/OMYHPAo5fA
In a week? You have this info now, but waiting to release it? Oooook.
Or they’re saying he was faking it:
weird you can see all these photographers and journalists snapping pics in this video, completely unharmed, and antifa only takes issue with right wing provocateur Andy Ngo. also interesting the video starts right at the moment he gets smacked. i wonder! https://t.co/yEl5Z7H2ag— Matt Binder (@MattBinder) June 30, 2019
I guess he started a fight with antifa, so he deserves all of this?
Meanwhile Brian Stelter is forced to admit this was a despicable attack, but he can’t bring himself to call Ngo a journalist, so he calls him a “messenger”:
Disturbing. Attacking a messenger shows weakness, not strength. Hopefully the authorities will get to the bottom of this. https://t.co/lSN2uZCASD— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) June 30, 2019
On the plus side, Michelle Malkin opened up a GoFundMe to help Ngo, and she quickly met the $50,000 goal she had set. It’s up to $78,000 and counting:
So, pray for Ngo. And hopefully the scumbags who attacked him will be caught, but to be honest, I’m not holding my breath on that one….
Here’s our previous post on the attack.
There’s another angle of the attack.
There's a video with a different angle of the brutal assault of Andy Ngo. (via @michellemalkin)— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) June 30, 2019
Antifa pummeled him with carbon fiber-knuckled gloves (Oakley Assault Gloves).
