Two years ago journalist Andy Ngo was assaulted in Portland by members of the domestic terrorist group Antifa.
That attack did not deter the conservative journalist, who has since continued covering the violence in the city for the last two years.
Unfortunately for Andy, he was recently assaulted by a group of Portland Antifa members yet again.
Andy says that he had gone undercover and infiltrated the group, but was ousted due to the fact that the other members noticed he wasn’t participating in the violence.
he claims he was chased, tackled, and punched in the back of the head.
Though Andy must be commended for his bravery, many are recommending that he haults all reporting in Portland, as calls for his death are intensifying among members of Antifa.
Our friends at the Daily Wire have more information on the latest attack:
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.”
“Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden,” Ngo said in a statement. “The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist, recording the tactics and true ideology of an extremist clandestine movement that relies on deception and regards the truth as the greatest threat of all. They want the right to hide their identities behind masks, and erase records of their arrests and alleged crimes. They want me dead for capturing these things and reporting on them.”
Andy shared details on Twitter as well
Andy spoke to Fox News about the assault.
Laura Ingraham cautioned Andy for his continued reporting in Portland, saying he needs to be more careful or he will end up dead.
Here's more of Andy's own description of the assault from the New York Post:
“A group of masked people in black followed and surrounded me. As they interrogated me, one managed to pull off my mask and immediately yelled, ‘That’s Andy. Get him! Get him!,'” he wrote.
“One of the black-clad Antifa members tackled me to the ground … punching my head and face repeatedly, while I pleaded for them not to kill me,” he recalled.
He managed to run inside the Nines Hotel, sharing video footage of him cowering behind the front desk as a woman inside warns him, “We’re going to beat the f–k out of you, bitch.”
Other footage shows several people banging on doors and trying to get into the hotel, shouting threats and calling the journalist “Nazi scum.”
“For more than an hour, Antifa extremists kept trying to get into the hotel to hunt me down and finish the job they started on the street,” he insisted.
He was eventually rescued by EMTs and taken to an emergency room, sharing images of wounds to his hands, left knee and right abdomen and a bloodied right eye.
He said that “one Antifa member was arrested” and charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon, felony attempted assault, felony riot and other crimes, but was immediately bailed out “by an Antifa bail fund group.”
“No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job,” Ngo wrote.
“I call on the Portland Police and federal authorities to act on this before Antifa operatives hiding behind their masks succeed in murdering an American journalist on their watch.
“And I call on journalists and all those who believe in the First Amendment to join me in standing against the tyranny of those who use violence to terrorize, silence and suppress the truth,” he said.
