Controversial journalist Andy Ngo has revealed that he was chased and assaulted while attending a demonstration on the one-year anniversary of the Portland protests on George Floyd's death. The editor-at-large of The Post Millenial was allegedly attacked by a black-clad 'angered mob of Antifa radicals' at the downtown Nines hotel in Portland on Friday, May 28.

This is, however, not the first time the right-wing-leaning journalist has been targeted by 'Antifa' agents. In 2019, alleged Antifa member John Hacker and a group of others assaulted him in Portland. Ngo even suffered from a severe brain hemorrhage after the previous attack. This time, he was treated in the emergency room for multiple injuries, including bloody gashes on his hands and legs, bruises on his stomach and a bleeding eye. Ngo has allegedly been constantly threatened by Antifa for his book on the group, titled, 'Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy', as well as his controversial reporting.

Andy Ngo shared an elaborate Twitter thread on Wednesday, June 2, detailing his recent assault. "No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job. Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore," he tweeted. "I was chased, attacked, and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood," he added. He further leveled allegations of anti-Asian violence against Antifa, saying, "As the Asian son of Vietnamese immigrants, I also have to be mindful of Antifa’s attacks on multiple people of East Asian origin."

Who attacked Andy Ngo?

According to the editor-at-large of The Post Millenial, there were tweets from Antifa members prior to the attack, that hint at his assault being pre-planned. 



 

"Don't worry about martyrs being created from 'cancel culture,' Andy Ngo needs to go, one way or another," an Antifa member reportedly tweeted, while another shared his whereabouts, "Andy Ngo is at the Nines Hotel RIGHT F**KING NOW!" One user even tweeted, "They never really finish the Andy Ngo problem effectively like they should."

According to The Oregonian, Ngo was confronted and questioned by his previous attacker John Hacker. As he did not answer, he was surrounded by 'masked, black-clad' protesters who punched and tackled him near the hotel lobby where he sought refuge.

He was punched on his head and face repeatedly and fell on the ground from the blows, as he pleaded with the mob to spare his life. Afterward, he managed to rush back to the hotel and requested the hotel staff to call 911, but they refused him. He crouched behind the hotel's front desk to hide from the protesters who were screaming at him from outside the windows.



 

"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," the journalist later wrote on Twitter.



 

He also shared photos of windows with death threats to him spray-painted on them. He further insisted that the police did not take any action despite him making over two dozen reports about the death threats he received.
