Andy Ngo to testify against Antifa, Internet calls it a clown show for letting 'a vile racist' brief the panel
Many social media users supported him, saying, 'Antifa threw concrete milkshakes at him and punched him while he was doing his job'
Journalist Andy Ngo filed a lawsuit against far-left group Antifa on June 4 for waging a “campaign of terror and harassment” against him, just days after President Trump blamed them for inciting violence during anti-police protests. Ngo said he had been assaulted, stalked, threatened and robbed by members of the group in Portland, even suffering a brain hemorrhage after being assaulted in June 2019, according to The Washington Times.
"Antifa is an openly extremist movement with the training and intent of destabilizing this country and overthrowing our Constitution," Ngo had said during a live-streamed press conference. "The protection of foolish politicians and the media have emboldened this movement to carry out unprecedented terrorist attacks."
In the lawsuit filed at Multnomah County court in Oregon, Ngo sought at least $900,000 in damages for assault, battery, emotional distress and racketeering by those who acted to "suppress Ngo's journalism through intimidation and violence," and for "ongoing neurological and health issues." And now, Ngo is being brought in to testify against Antifa. People are rather struck with this strange turn of events and say that it doesn't make sense, saying this is a complete mockery. Ngo will be briefing the Oversight Committee on June 29.
"They seriously letting Andy Ngo testify? The guy who put together 'kill lists' for Atomwaffen?" a Twitter user noted. Another echoed this sentiment. "Andy ngo is best known for providing kill lists to atomwaffen and being a threat to our communities."
"Because we live in the stupidest timeline, sexual abuse enabler Jim Jordan has called grifter propagandist and fascist bootlicker Andy Ngo to congress to testify about the terrible, awful threat antifascism presents to the country. What a clown show," another wrote.
"Andy Ngo is a vile racist and fascist. This is scraping the barrel even lower than Candace Owens. No healthy society, least of all anything resembling a democracy, glorifies people like Andy," another person tweeted.
"Andy Ngo is the least trustworthy person to have for a briefing on antifa but I guess they were aware of that when they decided to have him, since they know he's just going to give the words they want to hear," another tweeted.
However, many others appeared to be interested in what Andy Ngo has to say. " Andy Ngo covers #Antifa violence. They've attacked him. Despite what the leftist Twitter Mob says, he is not a White Nationalist. Andy is an Asian-American. His parents came to the United States as refugees from Vietnam before he was born. I look forward to hearing from him," one wrote.
"What's wrong with Andy Ngo testifying? Antifa threw concrete milkshakes at him and punched him while he was doing his job. Oh, that's right. Everyone made him out to be nuts for warning people about Antifa. Get a grip," another journalist wrote.
