Journalist Andy Ngo, who tracks far-left extremist movements, was attacked by extremists last week upon returning to Portland, Oregon, according to a statement that he made late last night.
“No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job,” Ngo said. “Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore. for a new chapter of my book, ‘Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.’”
“I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood,” he said. “Had I not been able to shelter wounded and bleeding inside a hotel while they beat the doors and windows like animals, there is no doubt in my mind I would not be here today. Their words, like their actions, speak for themselves.”
