Journalist Flees in Fear of Antifa

Because of the widespread, deceitful, foolish assault on policing, America is becoming so lawless that a journalist is forced to flee for his life because of the threat of thugs. No one has done more to expose the agenda of Antifa and the lies of the mainstream media on this particular front than Andy Ngo. His parents fled communism for the safety and freedom of America only to see America now torn apart by leftist ideology promoted at the highest levels of education, journalism, business, entertainment, and government. The following is excerpted from “Andy Ngo reacts to becoming Antifa target,” Fox News, Apr. 5, 2021: “Ando Ngo, born-and-raised Portlander and second-generation Vietnamese American, a conservative journalist who serves as the editor-at-large of The Post Millenial, is now a New York Times bestselling author thanks to his recently published tome, Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy. In Unmasked, Ngô explores not only the history of Antifa both in and outside the United States, but also his own experiences covering what he describes as an organized community of radical, left-wing anarchists. Opponents tried to stop the book from being published, Ngô, 33, wrote on Twitter. Over the course of years, Ngô has endured physical attacks from people in crowds while covering Antifa or radical events, and even unwanted visitors at his and his parents’ homes, Ngô wrote in his book. But everything came to a head earlier this year when Ngô left the country amid threats of violence and ‘an escalation of safety concerns’; he told Fox News. ‘It was just not safe anymore for me. I had already been on borrowed time,; he said when reached by phone. Ngô grew to have a keen interest in Antifa following the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, he said. ‘Absolutely nobody was expecting it,’ he recalled. ‘And the response to that democratic outcome was for people to take to the streets in masses to reject that outcome, and in Portland, many people chose to manifest their frustration through violence and destruction.’ In his coverage on the ground in Portland at the time, Ngô said he began to see ‘the groundwork being laid for something much worse to come. There was just this overall, not just a shift in the attitudes in the public toward left-wing political violence, but also the hollowing out and weakening of law enforcement institutions,’ he said.

Ngô was a student journalist at Portland State University tasked with working on election night in 2016. He said what he saw shocked him. He described hearing at the time that Trump’s election ‘was the first step toward ascendant fascism and the rise of a totalitarian regime in the U.S. These extremist, radical, unfounded ideas were given space to propagate in our papers of legacy, in our homes and through broadcast and radio, and of course to online news sites,’ Ngô said. ‘That helped to really radicalize the left, in my opinion.’ Ngô’s resolve to cover Antifa ‘became more clear and focused’ from 2017 through 2018, when he began to notice discrepancies in what he was seeing at riots versus what was being reported, he said. ‘After every riot that was occurring in Portland and Seattle, the coverage from the local press was not the honest picture about who these masked militants actually were,’ he said. Ngô continued: ‘The way they were described, they were lionized and described essentially as heroes who are protecting their communities because police don’t protect people, because police are racist and transphobic and homophobic.’”
