The journalist who was brutally attacked by Antifa in Portland, Oregon, during a rally is blasting progressive media accusing outlets of emboldening the left-wing group.
Andy Ngo spoke with the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill about his recovery, legal action and about the coverage his attack has received since the incident occurred. (RELATED: ‘When I Thought It Was Over, I Was Wrong’: Andy Ngo Describes Brutal Antifa Attack.)
Beyond the small group of actual violent armed militants you have a much larger concentric circle of non-violent antifa sympathizers who work in progressive media who have a lot of influence on social media as well — some of them work in center left mainstream media as well.
These are people who mainstream, whitewash, sanitize the ideas and tactics of Antifa. This is the group I find more concerning because this is what gives Antifa the moral legitimacy that they have been thriving on since 2016 to continue to organize to go out and wreak havoc on the streets and depending on what city it is to do it with impunity.
