Andy Ngo, a gay Asian journalist who writes for Quillette, has been covering the violent Antifa protests for over a year now in Portland. They’ve threatened and pushed him around several times now, but this afternoon at a Proud Boys rally in Portland the mob brutally assaulted him:

“A journalist who covers AntiFa in the Pacific Northwest has become the victim of an alleged violent assault by leftist militants.
Scenes of the attack on reporter Andy Ngo were captured on video livestreams broadcasting demonstrations in downtown Portland, Oregon on Saturday.
Members of Rose City Antifa, numbering in the hundreds, organized as a counterprotest to a few dozen right-wing protesters from the Proud Boys and other rightist organizations, who announced their decision to demonstrate in three sites across the city. Police responded to the demonstrations by cordoning off various intersections and preventing the groups from clashing.
Caught in the crossfire was Ngo, an editor for Quillette and a contributor to the Wall Street Journal. He covered the unfolding protest by following a group of anarchist activists, some of whom he identified as “militant AntiFa” in his Periscope livestream.
The group quickly turned into a mob which targets the journalist. …”
As is their custom, Antifa attacked the police with eggs, water bottles and rocks before the event was declared an unlawful assembly. Lately, they’ve added milkshakes:

Michael Edison Hayden who used to work for Newsweek and who now writes for the SPLC’s Hatewatch blog justified the assault on Twitter:
Christopher Mathias of The Huffington Post had this to say:
It is worth noting that that the Antifa crowd in Portland was merely following the advice of Carlos Maza who works for Vox.com. In Portland, the milkshaking and censorship that is now openly advocated by the mainstream Left escalated into mob violence against journalists.
Oh, just one more thing … none of this has anything to do with the Alt-Right. These tactics are now being brazenly applied to mainstream conservatives.
