Andy Ngô, Editor-at-large at Post Millenial has been fearless in confronting Antifa.
On August 5 he posted his full testimony to congress about Antifa, in which he said:
“I have worked undercover for months and I’ve seen with my own eyes how hundreds of so-called protesters work together to carry out acts of organized criminality against government and civilians.”
His testimony begins:
“Antifa is not a myth. I’ve been reporting on its activities since 2016, its threats to my family have proved it’s all too real. As any good journalist knows, the most important stories are often those not being told. This story is not being told. The American public knows little about this violent group and its radical ideology. I made Antifa my beat, and that makes me a target. Its followers regard my reporting as a threat to their mission, so they use violence and intimidation to try to frighten me into silence.
“First they tried to discredit me, branding me as a ‘white supremacist’. I happen to be gay and a signed Vietnamese refuge – so that was surprising. Next they threatened to threatened to kill me and hurt my family. They almost succeeded last year when they surrounded me in the middle of downtown Portland. I was beaten so badly that I was hospitalised…”
He reveals that Antifa “coordinate on encrypted chat platform like Signal because they are extremely difficult for law enforcement to monitor. “
“Antifa has masted the art of making its violence appear innocuous. For example projectiles that look like water balloons can be filled with chemicals, small sling-shots can be used to project rocks, glass and ball bearings into police lines, umbrella tips can be fastened with discreet pocket knives, powerful handheld lasers can cause serious damage to the eyes.
“Antifa and its allies have made rioting an art form in Portland.
“They have access to a rich stream of cash flowing from platforms like GoFundMe…
“Any conspirator arrested in Portland is instantly bailed out and ready for the next night of violent protest.
“I come to you today with a message for Senators of both parties. Antifa’s goal is not only to abolish the criminal justice system but it is to bring down the Republic itself. ‘Burn it down they say.’
“Don’t take my word for it, go and read their literature, go and listen to their chants and look at their graffiti messages.
“Portland is the canary in the coal mine for Antifa in America. Look to my city to see what happens when a group like Antifa is left unchecked.”
