Breaking from Ngo: Dozens of armed #antifa surrounded a family Christian prayer event in Portland & assaulted the attendees. They threw an explosive firework at the children, sprayed mace & tore apart the sound equipment before throwing it into the river. https://t.co/7an6N4H9wN— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021
It was not a Proud Boys event. You know nothing about what happened & who was involved. Like most on here, you assume Twitter headlines are accurate. This was a flyer for the event & neither you nor anyone has provided evidence Artur Pawlowski was sponsored by the Proud Boys. https://t.co/7Cz9S4JeRh pic.twitter.com/o6sjuab6Cg— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021
According to one of the militant antifa members who witnessed the violent direct action, antifa threw the Christian group's sound equipment into the Willamette River. The attendees, which included children, were hit with projectiles & pepper spray. pic.twitter.com/Fyh8SYjRa6— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021
On Saturday in Portland, antifa gathered to violently shut down a Christian group that gathered to pray. Antifa can be seen pulling apart the speaker equipment. An attendee told me children & families were attacked. Police were called but didn’t respond. pic.twitter.com/QvSCmu06B0— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021
Whenever antifa are documented engaging in violent behavior (in this case, attacking families at a worship event in a Portland park), their supporters focus attention away from the violence & unto who the victims are to defame them & justify the assault. pic.twitter.com/8JZuI1LPHo— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021
After antifa attacked the Portland family Christian prayer event, another clash broke out when a masked antifa ran up to spray mace at another group & is shot at w/paint balls. Antifa member Dustin Brandon Ferreira (in wheelchair) can be seen in the video. pic.twitter.com/1RahBzLIxv— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 8, 2021

Portland is a city of interesting dualities.
They have some of the rowdiest people on the West Coast. Over the last five years, we have watched those people go from brawling with Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys to attacking the Portland police for lack of anything else to do to burning down ICE facilities to laying siege to the federal courthouse and attacking DHS personnel to murdering Patriots in the streets to surveilling and threatening to kill Mayor Ted Wheeler to attacking and beating up random motorists armed with AK-47s and now to vandalizing churches and attacking Canadian street preachers holding events in Portland’s public parks.
Note: If you fight back against these people who are breaking the law to violate your First Amendment rights, Merrick Garland’s DOJ and the FBI will come after you as a “domestic extremist.”
