Journalist Andy Ngo, formerly of Quillette, suffered a brain bleed at the hands of ANTIFA terrorists who tossed a milkshake likely containing quick-dry concrete at his head earlier this summer, but that hasn’t stopped the fake news from smearing him as an extremist.
Ngo was shown in a livestream video near Patriot Prayer, a conservative group that stands up against ANTIFA terrorists who regularly lob death threats toward fair-minded journalists like Ngo, as they prepared for a likely confrontation with ANTIFA domestic terrorists in the streets of Portland.
Fake news outlets such as the Daily Beast, VICE, Media Matters and others seized upon this video to detail a conspiracy theory that Ngo was aiding and abetting right-wing extremists, and implied that he deserved the vicious gang attack that left him hospitalized.
Ngo corrected the record and defended his reputation in an op/ed published by Spectator USA.
“In disinformation campaigns designed to destroy a person’s reputation, lies are mixed with kernels of truth to make it difficult for even good-faith readers to discern fact from fiction,” Ngo wrote.
“What is indisputable is that a selectively released, non-continuous video by a pseudonymous Antifa activist on a leftist blog shows me standing near right-wing activists on a street shortly before a brawl on May 1 in Portland. What’s false is the defamatory claim that I had knowledge of a violent criminal conspiracy,” he continued.
Ngo was pilloried by the fake news for cracking a smile while talking to an activist in the area. He compares the ongoing smear campaign against him to what the media did to Nick Sandmann and the Covington Catholic kids after they were confronted by belligerent race hustler Nathan Phillips.
“When people who are perceived to be right-wing smile, it’s often taken as sinister evidence: remember the Covington schoolboys. A viral post on Twitter took the lie a step further, claiming I was ‘laughing.’ This lie has been repeated unchecked in various ‘news’ stories,” Ngo wrote.
Ngo made the point that he ended up being assaulted by ANTIFA terrorists on the day the video was captured, with masked assailants spraying chemicals into his eyes.
“I retreated from the area, then began to record again while standing behind a van on the street,” Ngo wrote about his reaction following the brawl that day. “It was here that a masked person suddenly ran up and sprayed me point-blank in the face with a chemical that burned my eyes and skin. I was totally blinded.”
Ngo made the point that law enforcement refuses to do anything to stop the ANTIFA terror threat that has taken hold of Portland, likely at the behest of Mayor Ted Wheeler, while the patriots who stand up against them are harshly punished.
“I have repeatedly reported what happened to me to the Portland police that night, but there have been no arrests in relation to my attack, despite several images being provided to authorities of at least one attacker,” he wrote.
“Six right-wing suspects, including Joey Gibson, have been arrested and charged in recent weeks for their alleged role in the brawl. Cider Riot is also suing most of the same individuals in a civil lawsuit for $1 million,” Ngo added.
After the vicious attacks put him in the hospital, Ngo – a homosexual Asian liberal – has become one of the top targets for destruction by the organized Left. They want to destroy his reputation so ANTIFA, guarded by institutional power, can continue their street rampages with impunity.
“To go from being a victim of multiple assaults to suddenly accused of being the violent aggressor or complicit in the acts of others, is the type of gaslighting I am used to by now,” Ngo wrote.
“The ‘damning’ video purporting to show me conspiring in a violent attack, which shows nothing of the sort, is just the latest in a string of lies designed to intimidate me into silence since the brain injury I sustained in June failed to silence me,” Ngo added.
However, Ngo refuses to be silenced or demonized. He will continue his journalistic mission exposing ANTIFA, something that he has arguably been more effective at doing than anyone else, even though it has come at great expense to his own personal safety.
The Intercept Whines about Lack of Donations Blaming Trump, After Censoring Founder Glenn Greenwald
This sell-out fake news outlet is suffering market repercussions.
A fundraising appeal from The Intercept contains complaints that donations have dried up in recent months, blaming former President Donald Trump’s attacks on the fake news for their blog’s lack of viability in the marketplace.
“Since Donald Trump left office on January 20, donations to The Intercept have gone down sharply,” the fundraising appeal states. “After years of steady growth, last month brought fewer new members than we’ve seen in more than two years.”
They note that progressive publications throughout the world are hurting without having Trump in the White House allowing them to publish absurd nonsense to their captive audiences.
“While Trump railed against journalists as ‘the enemy of the people,’ grassroots outrage over Trump’s corruption, racism, and incompetence fueled a spike in ratings,” the fundraising letter states, lamenting the end of the lucrative “Trump bump.”
The Intercept claims that the additional funding has allowed the outlet to be “able to take on more and more ambitious and hard-hitting investigative reporting.” However, anyone who is familiar with how the blog split with their founder Glenn Greenwald understands that this notion is laughably false.
Big League Politics has reported on how Greenwald quit The Intercept after the publication refused to allow him to scrutinize the record of President-imposed Joe Biden in the lead-up to last year’s farce of an election:
Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald announced on Thursday that he will depart from The Intercept, the publication he co-founded to publish news outside of the fake news media-industrial complex, because the organization has transformed into everything they were founded to oppose.
Greenwald published the rationale behind his departure on Substack, explaining how his writing critical to Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden was censored by the outlet.
“The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression,” he said.
“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication,” Greenwald added.
Greenwald explained that he could not stay with The Intercept since they had violated journalistic ethics to shill for Biden.
“As of now, I will be publishing my journalism here on Substack, where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter Matt Taibbi, have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country,” Greenwald wrote.
“This was not an easy choice: I am voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work by subscribing,” he added.
No organization deserves to go bankrupt more than The Intercept, but unfortunately their billionaire backers, including Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar, will likely bail them out and keep them afloat despite lack of interest.
