[Original article:] Reports have been spreading quickly across the internet about the Antifa violence that took place in Portland, Oregon on June 29th, 2019. Specifically, gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo was assaulted by Antifa and it was captured on film.
Human Events recounted how the violence escalated at the rally that involved a Proud Boys march, which was intercepted by Antica. They also embedded the footage from Twitter user Jim Ryan, who captured some of the assault taking place against Ngo. The journalist was pelted with objects, milkshakes, and eggs while police avoided intervening until the assault had ceased.

As noted in the Human Events piece, there were various supporters of Antifa and those on the far Left who were cheering on the violence against Ngo, blaming him for the injuries he incurred. Many others were completely silent about the violence enacted by Antifa, not willing to condemn other Leftists and uphold their narrative for the sake of tribalism.
Will the LGBT community condemn Antifa for assaulting a gay man during pride month? Or does your sexual orientation only matter if you’re liberal?

Journalist Tim Pool was also in the trending feed pointing out how various Left-wing activists posing as journalists have been using their nationally syndicated platforms to praise and champion Antifa, all while these groups commit conscienceless acts of violence.
Remember when Don Lemon defended Antifa?
Remember when Chris Cuomo defended Antifa?
They are running defense for violent psychopaths who beat up journalistshttps://t.co/4402cJ6lN6

Images of Ngo’s injuries were also posted up online, as depicted in the tweet by journalist Ian Miles Cheong.

It was also revealed that Antifa members were lobbing milkshakes at those they considered to be their ideological opponents, but those milkshakes were replaced with quick-dry cement, as noted by the Portland Police department. Some of these milkshakes were even thrown at Andy Ngo during his assault.
Police have received information that some of the milkshakes thrown today during the demonstration contained quick-drying cement. We are encouraging anyone hit with a substance today to report it to police.

The Rose City Antifa criminal enterprise that made the concrete milkshakes to assault our client @MrAndyNgo had custom cups printed up with their criminal gang symbol. Who is the printer? Can anyone identify who made these cups? pic.twitter.com/6wbMXfVtqS

This was literally the exact worry that many people had when commercial corporations like Burger King were encouraging the incitement of violence by lobbing milkshakes at political opponents. The most obvious question was: what if the milkshakes contained some kind of dangerous substance in them?
Well, it appears as if Antifa was doing exactly what people feared they would do.
According to photojournalist Brandon Farley, Portland police were on hand to make arrests for some members of Antifa, specifically those caught engaging in assault and battery within their presence.

There was an interesting tweet from Farley, though. He mentioned that the police were trying to push him into harm’s way.
Farley believes that the violence against Ngo may have been staged, potentially with help from the local officials. He doesn’t have much information in the way of proof other than a tweet and a photo that was published on June 30th, 2019.
Police put me in harm’s way, today. I think what happened to Andy Ngo could have been staged and, if so, they may have been trying to do it to me, too. I’ll uncover this and more in my next few video releases. pic.twitter.com/KMa8gMC3Il

This kind of escalation of violence has been happening often and escalating at a rapid clip leading up to the 2020 elections. Many believe that if Antifa isn’t stopped and the propaganda media outlets aren’t brought to heel soon, it will eventually lead to a civil war within the United States, which is exactly what the Christchurch shooter wanted.
