ANTIFA THUGS ATTACK journalist Andy Ngo at Portland liberal rally!

Andy Ngo has been covering a lot of the left-wing extremism and he’s seen a lot of threats coming from Antifa. This weekend the scumbags finally attacked him.

Here’s video of part of the attack:



He walked away but I think there were more attacks.

He addressed what happened in a periscope video:

He said that they stole his GoPro camera, which can be very expensive.

But even before they attacked him, he documented the public threats to his safety:

The media doesn’t have a good track record of reporting on this stuff. They only care about attacks on journalists that they can blame on Trump or other people on the right. Maybe they’ll claim these hooded commies are actually secretly MAGA-lovers? More likely, they’ll just completely ignore it…

  1. Some here suggesting open carry or carrying mace to confrint these facists, but I wouldn’t recommend it in these leftist havens unless you got good self-defense insurance

    1. @Abe In Portland? I’m guessing that a peaceful, armed person would get arrested before a rock throwing, antifa thug.

    1. @chow-yun-fatty I carry pepper spray, a tire thumper and several other “tools” in the big truck. At home in my pickup, only a pistol.

      1. Dr. Strangelove I usually drive with pepper spray, my CS Roach Belly, machete in the trunk, torque wrench, and my XD.

        1. @chow-yun-fatty Springfield fan, eh? You’re a man of fine taste. My summer EDC is an XDs 4.0 .45 ACP.

    1. Might be a little better if no permit was issued and have local police there in case they do show up. If you have any National Guard Units in your Area ask the Governor to have them standby.

    1. We can all thank Portland Mayor/Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler for the police department’s lack of action to protect anyone not in line with the far left agenda.

  2. The media doesn’t report it because it’s a left wing group. What the public doesn’t see didn’t happen. Make no mistake about it that if the Tea Party did this it would be plastered all over the media for a month.

    1. @kong1967 Yeah, it’s a federal offense if the TEA Party drops a gum wrapper on the ground, but anything goes for antifa.

    2. I remember earlier this year Mitt Romney tweeting out his support of Antifa for fighting facism so it’s many in the mind numb D.C. Crowd ignoring their violence as well not just the bias media.

        1. I just said above I may have had the date off, but defending them even then was outrageous and ignorant imo.

      1. @willtapp I still have marks on my nose from holding it so tightly while voting for him.

  3. You’d be surprised (read: not at all surprised) at the number of people on Twitter who think he deserved it.

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised. The amount of craziness I hear on my little Nextdoor forum tells me I’m living in an alternative world and not the one I was raised in.

  4. Yes, it is true, ANTIFA is the Sturmabteilung for the Democratic Party. Fascist is what Fascist do.

  5. I am torn. On one hand, thank God these scum don’t come to my town. On the other hand, please God, let these scum come to my town….

    1. These fascist cowards only appear in leftist havens where they are protected by local government and police.

  6. Antifa is listed as a terrorist organization. How is it they are not arrested on sight?

  7. Watching that clip made me absolutely furious. The way those masked cowards kept attacking, jeering and throwing things at his BACK as he was trying to walk away from them…these are nothing but schoolyard bullies. The reason they are doing these things is that they have so far been allowed to get away with them.

    And I’m sorry if this violates some rule or makes anyone uncomfortable, but the only way to deal with people like this is to punch them in the throat.

  8. Putrid punks! Portland is a city run by leftist losers. Police are pathetic and useless. Why people keep voting this crap in is beyond the pale. Disgraceful and disgusting.

    1. Cruz called them a domestic terrorist group(antifa) last night and wants federal law enforcement involved and wants Mayor investigated for ordering police to allow these attacks.

  9. The media doesn’t have a good track record of reporting on this stuff. They only care about attacks on journalists that they can blame on Trump or other people on the right. Maybe they’ll claim these hooded commies are actually secretly MAGA-lovers? More likely, they’ll just completely ignore it…

    Looks like they went with, “violence from both sides.”

    Of course.

    1. @hubman

      Looks like they went with, “violence from both sides.”

      If that were actually true, Antifa would go extinct pretty quickly.

  10. Vile leftist hypocrites. Claim to be about “gay rights”, but beat up a gay man. Claim to be about “anti-fascism”, yet beat up said gay man for challenging their violent ideology. Every time I think the left can’t be more disgusting and hypocritical, they find a new way to repulse me. They obviously don’t care about their “victim groups”, only thinking of them and the individuals that comprise them as meat shields for power mongering.

    Even worse, the media defends these scum, even after the violent little cowardly vermin beat up an innocent man. At least the media and political spheres of Italy were all arrayed against the Fascists before they took over.

    1. Then they get painted as the victim of right-wing aggression. Racist aggression. Racist nazi aggression.

      1. @atomicsentinel Let them paint away. In the meantime, they won’t be hitting any old men with padlocks because they’ll be too busy trying to breathe.

  12. The media doesn’t have a good track record of reporting on this stuff. They only care about attacks on journalists that they can blame on Trump or other people on the right.

  14. Antifa is the democrats storm troopers. In the old South, they used the Klan to enforce their Jim Crow Laws now they are using Antifa to attack anyone who is in opposition to the democrat party. Sorta reminds you what happened an European Country in the thirties and forties. Would not be surprised if Antifa is funded by the DNC through George Soros.

  15. Any time you hear a detestable Democrat condemn Trump’s comments that there were “good people on both sides” to attack him about his comments regarding Charlottesville (taken out of context as Trump SPECIFICALLY identified White Supremecists and KKK present and CONDEMNED them) remember that Antifa was and remains on THEIR side.

    There is no group more dangerous, destructive or anti-1st Amendment than Antifa, yet not only are they IGNORED on our MSM News outlets, but some Journalists (e.g. Cuomo, Lemon) actually DEFEND their actions by claiming “moral authority.”

    Thank you Andy Ngo for exposing Antifa for what they TRULY are.

    Off topic, but are all the Journalists on Rightscoop just going to IGNORE the story of U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam’s ruling that STOPS Trump’s Wall via “Emergency Declaration” by BLOCKING the funding? Or are we just going to pretend “new Wall” is still being built and not just replacement wall?
    Just curious.

    Everyone would agree we need one more than ever, but the loathsome Liberals are resourceful and I knew they’d shop Federal Judges / Circuit Judges to block it.

  16. I wish that I’d run into some of these antifa thugs today. Some junkie got into my garage and stole a $400 GPS and I’ve got a really bad attitude.

    1. No crap? Dang, sorry Doc. Antifa would be perfect to take that anger out on. Did you see them do it or something?

      1. @ryan-o I think that it was the same one who kicked the door in earlier because the lights were left on again.

    2. So you want to take a harm you suffered out on someone other than the one who caused it to you. How progressive.

      Par for the course, Doc. Par for the course.

      1. You frequently express your disdain for law enforcement. I’m expressing my disdain for criminals. See the difference?

  17. More and more it appears that America has lost the left coast. The Left has done what centuries of earthquakes, tsunamis, and erosion failed to do, making the place unlivable. Liberalism is an ideology of hatred for anything normal or happy. A Lib might be described as Puritans of old were: Someone who is terribly afraid that someone, somewhere, enjoys his life and is happy. I don’t know when America will rise up against these people, but history has shown that despite our long-suffering patience, eventually we will. At my advanced years, I hope to be alive to see it.

    1. @bill-in-tennessee It’s been my assertion for some time that Americans won’t wake up until they are hit hard in the wallet, and then it’ll probably be too late.

    2. They seem to believe they are self appointed guardians of morality, including the right to pass judgement on history, and decide who has to pay for sins of the past.

  18. If his lawyer is to be believed, Andy has a brain bleed.

    Meanwhile, other radicals on twitter are calling for border agents and Lawyers who work for immigration to be doxed and shamed and hunted in public, unable to shop or eat in public. Sounds like the work of a community organizer and his Iranian sidekick.

    1. Yes, NYT apparently had an op-ed calling for the doxing and suggesting that any lawyer defending them should not be considered in good standing with Bar association.

    1. Cruz called them a domestic terrorist group(antifa) last night and wants federal law enforcement involved and wants Mayor investigated for ordering police to allow these attacks.

        1. Agreed and I’m wondering if any other GOP in DC speak out after this. They have been violent for years and not a peep from most republicans in office.

            1. Yep. As I said last night Mitt has praised them in the past so I’m wondering if his eyes are opening up to the danger or he still thinks they are “fighting” fascism. I will be waiting for his statement denouncing this action. According to Matt Walsh the reporter has a hemmorage or bleed of some sort.

  25. Joe Biggs is holding a Free Speech Rally in DC on July 5th and ANTIFA is promising acid attacks.

  26. Wow Twitter is blowing up with this. Its bad.

    They were throwing milkshakes laced with quick dried cement.

  27. Chris Cuomo is defending these guys, he says that they are fighting for a noble cause in a way…So the left and their propagandist networks [CNN/MSNBC etc.] are ok with this. Now, if it was a liberal being attacked by a group of people wearing MAGA hats it would be a *entirely* different take from CNN on that. It would be a national outrage for the next month at least with non stop hyperventilating coverage from the MSM.

  28. Time to start kicking some Anifa AXX. This will end soon if we send a few home to their parent bloody.

      1. When and where and did the Antifa people come out unscathed? I am a Texan in Texas And never heard of Antifa coming here unopposed.

  29. Some here suggesting open carry or carrying mace to confrint these facists, but I wouldn’t recommend it in these leftist havens unless you got good self-defense insurance

    1. @Abe In Portland? I’m guessing that a peaceful, armed person would get arrested before a rock throwing, antifa thug.

    1. We can all thank Portland Mayor/Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler for the police department’s lack of action to protect anyone not in line with the far left agenda.

    1. @chow-yun-fatty I carry pepper spray, a tire thumper and several other “tools” in the big truck. At home in my pickup, only a pistol.

      1. Dr. Strangelove I usually drive with pepper spray, my CS Roach Belly, machete in the trunk, torque wrench, and my XD.

        1. @chow-yun-fatty Springfield fan, eh? You’re a man of fine taste. My summer EDC is an XDs 4.0 .45 ACP.

          1. Dr. Strangelove – Yeah. All my pistols are Springfields. Nothing against Glock, Walther, or M&P. They just “work” for me. My EDC is the service model MOD 2. I used to carry the XDS 3.0 in 45 ACP, but that MF’er was jumpy. Plus my hands we’re too big and I had a good bit hanging off even with mag extensions. Slammed the mag in once & caught the meat of my hand and said f-this. So I went back to the grown up size. Lol.

            1. @chow-yun-fatty If I’m going to wear a boat anchor, I’ll go to my winter EDC, a 1911.

            2. Love Springfields even though I’m a “Sig” guy. In my 4-Runner, I got .40 Springfield sub compact as a Personal Protection Device. Little small for my fat hand, but with the extended magazine, it’s perfect.

              1. Sigs are great from what little I know of them. They just tend to be a little pricey.

                1. That they are, but they rarely misfire. And cleaning em’s a breeze. That said, I haven’t had many miscues with that Springfield sub compact, and it’s just as easy to clean.

  30. Yes, it is true, ANTIFA is the Sturmabteilung for the Democratic Party. Fascist is what Fascist do.

  31. The media doesn’t report it because it’s a left wing group. What the public doesn’t see didn’t happen. Make no mistake about it that if the Tea Party did this it would be plastered all over the media for a month.

    1. I remember earlier this year Mitt Romney tweeting out his support of Antifa for fighting facism so it’s many in the mind numb D.C. Crowd ignoring their violence as well not just the bias media.

      1. @Willtapp – WHAT!??? That is just crazy. I never heard that. I’m kinda shocked at that. Maybe he meant support for someone named Anita lol JK. That is so hard to believe.

        1. He definitively did just that. I could be wrong on the timing as it may have been around the Charlottesville nonsense, but he tweeted his support for sure and it was because they were standing up against fascism. If I can resurrect the tweet I’ll link it to you. Truthfully I’m not shocked as I’m guessing it was more about his Trump attacking he was doing at the time.

      2. I think Mitt is just ignorant of them, has no idea who they are. He just heard the term anti-fascist and took it at face value.

        1. I just said above I may have had the date off, but defending them even then was outrageous and ignorant imo.

      3. @willtapp I still have marks on my nose from holding it so tightly while voting for him.

    2. @kong1967 Yeah, it’s a federal offense if the TEA Party drops a gum wrapper on the ground, but anything goes for antifa.

      1. @dr-strangelove Apparently they believe violence is ok if it’s coming from their side fighting for the “good” cause.

  32. Karen is absolutely correct. He should enlist the help of some burly biker guys – they tend to be patriotic – and he should never go to any place these thugs are going to be without protection. Now he knows and I would imagine this will not happen to him a second time. He’s a brave guy – next time he needs to utilize his other asset: brains!

  33. You’d be surprised (read: not at all surprised) at the number of people on Twitter who think he deserved it.

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised. The amount of craziness I hear on my little Nextdoor forum tells me I’m living in an alternative world and not the one I was raised in.

  34. Joe Biggs is holding a Free Speech Rally in DC on July 5th and ANTIFA is promising acid attacks.

  35. Wow Twitter is blowing up with this. Its bad.

    They were throwing milkshakes laced with quick dried cement.

  36. I think he needs to get a bunch of bikers to escort him next time. Those little pukes wouldn’t dare mess with real men.

    1. Might be a little better if no permit was issued and have local police there in case they do show up. If you have any National Guard Units in your Area ask the Governor to have them standby.

      1. @bigsir74 I’m not so sure Antifa gets permits. I know at least on some occasions they don’t.

        1. Your right,I was kind of posting what it was like some years ago when Antifa would never ever had this perfect situation for themselves..Thank Kong

      2. You actually think that the Leftist Governor of Oregon will send NG units to put down the militant arm of the Democratic Party?

        1. Yea, this is the same governor who sent the state police to round up Republican senators for walking out over their carbon bill. I think we know where her loyalties lie.

        2. No,nor did I know the Police apparently took the day off.Where does this reporter go if he decides to sue the politicians and the Police or is there such a thing in Oregon.Thanks DRKJK

  37. Andy Ngo should have known better. He has had problems with ANTIFA in Portland prior to this. I don’t remember all the details but Tim Pool did a video about it a few months back. Now I am not defending the actions of ANTIFA but you should always be prepared to defend yourself and your property especially if you have had prior experiences with this specific group.

    1. Of course you’re defending ANTIFA. There is absolutely no reason why, in an ostensibly free country, free people should be able to report on affairs in the public without fear of reprisals. The bottom line is that this is not a free country, that ANTIFA can terrorize the streets at will, and there will be no repercussions. That is what needs being shouted from the mountain tops, not that people should hide under their beds when ANTIFA shows up.

      1. BS!!! If you know that a group has a beef with you then you go prepared to defend yourself. By your stupid logic we have no duty to mitigate possible harm. All I pointed out is that Andy Ngo knew that this specific group had it out for him and should have been better prepared. If this was the first time he got roughed up by ANTIFA maybe but it has happened to him before in Berkley and also in Portland. So he should have had backup or at least carried cheaper gear. Everyone of us should be aware of the situation and the surroundings we put ourselves in and do whatever we can to mitigate them.

      1. I am going to address you all at one time. First Andy Ngo knows ANTIFA is violent because he has been covering them for months and has had physical run ins with them in the past (Both in Portland and Berkley). Second he receive specific threats of violence from this group just prior to this event Now I am not saying he should not be reporting on this rally, but he should have had someone watching his back while doing so. Doing your dangerous job without taking any precautions is not wise. It does not matter if you are a first responder, a reporter or an oil rig worker you always think of how to do your job as safely as possible. If you get specific credible threats from the group you are covering you take precautions, just common sense. Andy Ngo should not have been attacked and robbed in a perfect world, but when you go into a situation you KNOW is likely dangerous for you personally you take steps to protect yourself. You all want to freak fine but would you stop a car that just committed a drive by to interview the shooter? No, Andy and anyone else that has covered in person any ANTIFA “Protest” over the last 2 years + knows they do not respect the law, they do not respect journalists nor do they respect innocent bystanders. Knowing all that does not mean you don’t report it means you use the buddy system or other form of precaution while you do. You may not like it but that is the reality in the real world. It does not matter if it is the streets of Portland or the streets of Caracas know your enviroment, know the dangers and prepare as best you can.

        1. He is covering the stories other journalists are too afraid to. Yes it’s dangerous, his bravery under those circumstances is commendable.

          You should be outraged, that our nation has no go zones for journalists.

          Now I have no problem mocking self important fake news, but I would never condone them getting beaten up. No matter how ridiculous they are and how dangerous their lies.

  38. Chris Cuomo is defending these guys, he says that they are fighting for a noble cause in a way…So the left and their propagandist networks [CNN/MSNBC etc.] are ok with this. Now, if it was a liberal being attacked by a group of people wearing MAGA hats it would be a *entirely* different take from CNN on that. It would be a national outrage for the next month at least with non stop hyperventilating coverage from the MSM.

  39. In Portland, as long as leftists are doing it, assault, vandalism, and public menacing are legal… The mayor and the ENTIRE police force are a disgrace. The town is putrid, north, south, east and west.

    1. Bunch of fascists in Oregon, including the Governor. I was born and raised there and cannot believe what a leftist hellhole it has become. Unfortunately, I moved to WA state which is just as bad.

    2. @ghalv Yeah, and you will also be arrested for defending yourself while conservative.

  40. THESE ARE HITLER’S “BROWN SHIRT” TACTICS!!!

    If the Democrats and the Media, but I repeat myself, do not condemn all this, they’re just as responsible.

    Hey ANTIFA! You Friggin’ Cowards!!! Go to a “Concealed Carry” State and try to pull this! Come to Arizona!

    1. The word for the Dems/Media is complicit unless and until they call this out. So far we haven’t seen it.

      1. Concur with “Complicit”, but I’m adding “responsible” as well because if they don’t speak against it, the thugs are left with the idea it’s OK. It just leads to more of it.

        But who am I trying to kid? These punks will do it no matter what. They need to be stomped. And Hard!!! (Apologies. I just needed to vent)

  41. Time to start kicking some Anifa AXX. This will end soon if we send a few home to their parent bloody.

  42. I never hear of Antifa showing up where they would get their @sses beat to a pulp. The welcome mat is out in Southeast. Come on down boys, we look forward to meeting you.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. I live in Texas and these punks would get brutalized in a way they never thought possible. An ass whipping goes a long way towards wisdom. I know, because I’ve had my ass beat. Learned something every single time.

    2. @landscaper Open as well as concealed carry are legal in Iowa. We don’t have any antifa problems.

  43. How could anyone tick the box next to any D! We listen to Lars Larson out in the northwest…You all should tune in…

  44. Effing pussys. Everyone of them. Those SOB’s would get the s#%t beat out of them. At least one of them would. Bunch of cowards. Thank God I didn’t move there a couple years ago.

  45. Nice how Mayor Ted Wheeler allows this terrorist group to rule his city. Someone showed a CCTV video of a black guy clocking a woman in the jaw on the street. Apparently he was charged with a misdemeanor and let go. She ended up with a broken eye socket. I was trying to find some coverage of it and couldn’t even after sifting through numerous assaults and murders in Portland. Looks like Democrats have turned the city into a cesspool.

    Of course the national news media will ignore this even though a journalist was attacked. He just wasn’t the right kind of journalist (even though he is a small, Asian gay man).

  46. That is the saddest rally I have seen in a long time.No help ,no nothing,just trying to walk away helplessly. Still they want to beat him some more and steal his Camera.Portland you public officials need to have your asses drug out of those offices and have your asses kicked along with those who granted this permit to riot.

  47. Antifa is listed as a terrorist organization. How is it they are not arrested on sight?

  48. I am torn. On one hand, thank God these scum don’t come to my town. On the other hand, please God, let these scum come to my town….

    1. These fascist cowards only appear in leftist havens where they are protected by local government and police.

      1. Great comments ,you are exactly right Abe,they go where there is no Law Enforcement,or where they feel law Enforcement is non-responsive.I would replace them one per one with most illegals.

      1. When and where and did the Antifa people come out unscathed? I am a Texan in Texas And never heard of Antifa coming here unopposed.

  49. Karen is absolutely correct. He should enlist the help of some burly biker guys – they tend to be patriotic – and he should never go to any place these thugs are going to be without protection.

First Andy Ngo knows ANTIFA is violent because he has been covering them for months and has had physical run ins with them in the past (Both in Portland and Berkley). Second he receive specific threats of violence from this group just prior to this event Now I am not saying he should not be reporting on this rally, but he should have had someone watching his back while doing so. Doing your dangerous job without taking any precautions is not wise. It does not matter if you are a first responder, a reporter or an oil rig worker you always think of how to do your job as safely as possible. If you get specific credible threats from the group you are covering you take precautions, just common sense. Andy Ngo should not have been attacked and robbed in a perfect world, but when you go into a situation you KNOW is likely dangerous for you personally you take steps to protect yourself. You all want to freak fine but would you stop a car that just committed a drive by to interview the shooter? No, Andy and anyone else that has covered in person any ANTIFA “Protest” over the last 2 years + knows they do not respect the law, they do not respect journalists nor do they respect innocent bystanders. Knowing all that does not mean you don’t report it means you use the buddy system or other form of precaution while you do. You may not like it but that is the reality in the real world. It does not matter if it is the streets of Portland or the streets of Caracas know your enviroment, know the dangers and prepare as best you can.

  52. In Portland, as long as leftists are doing it, assault, vandalism, and public menacing are legal… The mayor and the ENTIRE police force are a disgrace. The town is putrid, north, south, east and west.

    1. @ghalv Yeah, and you will also be arrested for defending yourself while conservative.

    2. Bunch of fascists in Oregon, including the Governor. I was born and raised there and cannot believe what a leftist hellhole it has become. Unfortunately, I moved to WA state which is just as bad.

  53. THESE ARE HITLER’S “BROWN SHIRT” TACTICS!!!

    If the Democrats and the Media, but I repeat myself, do not condemn all this, they’re just as responsible.

    Hey ANTIFA! You Friggin’ Cowards!!! Go to a “Concealed Carry” State and try to pull this! Come to Arizona!

    1. The word for the Dems/Media is complicit unless and until they call this out. So far we haven’t seen it.

      1. Concur with “Complicit”, but I’m adding “responsible” as well because if they don’t speak against it, the thugs are left with the idea it’s OK. It just leads to more of it.

        But who am I trying to kid? These punks will do it no matter what. They need to be stomped. And Hard!!! (Apologies. I just needed to vent)

  54. I never hear of Antifa showing up where they would get their @sses beat to a pulp. The welcome mat is out in Southeast. Come on down boys, we look forward to meeting you.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. I live in Texas and these punks would get brutalized in a way they never thought possible. An ass whipping goes a long way towards wisdom. I know, because I’ve had my ass beat. Learned something every single time.

    2. @landscaper Open as well as concealed carry are legal in Iowa. We don’t have any antifa problems.

  55. How could anyone tick the box next to any D! We listen to Lars Larson out in the northwest…You all should tune in…

  56. Effing pussys. Everyone of them. Those SOB’s would get the s#%t beat out of them. At least one of them would. Bunch of cowards. Thank God I didn’t move there a couple years ago.

  57. Nice how Mayor Ted Wheeler allows this terrorist group to rule his city. Someone showed a CCTV video of a black guy clocking a woman in the jaw on the street. Apparently he was charged with a misdemeanor and let go. She ended up with a broken eye socket. I was trying to find some coverage of it and couldn’t even after sifting through numerous assaults and murders in Portland. Looks like Democrats have turned the city into a cesspool.

    Of course the national news media will ignore this even though a journalist was attacked. He just wasn’t the right kind of journalist (even though he is a small, Asian gay man).

  58. That is the saddest rally I have seen in a long time.No help ,no nothing,just trying to walk away helplessly. Still they want to beat him some more and steal his Camera.Portland you public officials need to have your asses drug out of those offices and have your asses kicked along with those who granted this permit to riot.
