Andy Ngo has been on the frontlines reporting on Antifa, but unfortunately they have focused their violence against him in order to shut him up. From the Washington Times:
Journalist Andy Ngo filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Rose City Antifa, seeking $900,000 in damages for waging a “campaign of terror and harassment” against him, including a series of physical attacks.
A complaint filed in Oregon Circuit Court said Mr. Ngo has been assaulted, stalked, threatened and robbed by members of the Rose City Antifa in Portland, suffering a brain hemorrhage after being attacked in June 2019 by a black-masked mob.
This part is interesting:
The lawsuit, filed by San Francisco attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon and the Center for American Liberty, described Rose City Antifa as a racketeering operation under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.
I wonder if the declaration from Trump that he is going to name Antifa as a terrorist organization is one of the reasons that they believe they can go ahead with this lawsuit. Here’s more about the actual lawsuit:
“What happened to Andy Ngo is disturbing and should send chills down the spines of every journalist in the country,” said Ms. Dhillon, the Republican National Committeewoman from California, in a statement.
In addition to the Rose City Antifa, the complaint names five individuals and identifies them as Antifa activists.
“The police, district attorney’s office, and local politicians have totally failed to bring justice to the perpetrators of this heinous act and we bring this lawsuit as a last resort in the face of their unwillingness to enforce the law,” said Ms. Dhillon. “As we watch America’s greatest cities burn live on television at the hands of Antifa terrorists, we know they were emboldened by the inaction in Portland.”
I remember seeing tweets from Antifa sympathizers saying that they had secret info on Ngo and that people would regret supporting him when that information came out. It never really came out.
Here’s Ngo talking about Antifa on the Larry O’Connor show:
I’m guessing the scumbags will have a tough time in court, but he might have an even tougher time getting that money if he wins…
