Journalist Andy Ngo of Quillette was viciously assaulted by a gang of left-wing ANTIFA terrorists in Portland, OR on Saturday.
One of their weapons of choice was reportedly a milkshake filled with quick-drying cement. Ngo was forced to go to the emergency room as the result of the attacks.
Police have received information that some of the milkshakes thrown today during the demonstration contained quick-drying cement. We are encouraging anyone hit with a substance today to report it to police.

Before this violent incident, the mainstream media had promoted the act of “milkshaking” as a trendy form of protest against right-wing individuals for weeks. This form of political violence initially gained popularity in the United Kingdom, where Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage along with political figures Tommy Robinson and Sargon of Akkad were targeted by the violent attacks in the lead up to last month’s European parliamentary elections.
The mainstream media was thrilled to cheer on this practice at the time.
“There should be no debate over the importance of eradicating fascism, and of confronting its agents when they poke their ugly heads out into the commons. That the latest means of doing so involves both the public humiliation of racists and one of nature’s most delicious frosty treats is pure poetry in motion,” wrote Kim Kelly for VICE.
“The milkshake knows no triangulation. It has no truck with ‘legitimate concerns.’ It reminds everyone that these grotesques aren’t ‘normal’; that they are purveyors of hate and guzzlers of largesse from the transnational rich,” wrote Aditya Chakrabortty in The Guardian.
“Getting doused in a milkshake robs far-right figures of the air of chauvinistic invulnerability that they spend so much time cultivating,” Matt Ford wrote in his article, “Why Milkshaking Works” published by The New Republic.
“The target of said milkshake attack, which conservatives are already bemoaning as a sign of the end of civilization, was Rep. Matt Gaetz, who was pelted with a shake in his Florida district on Saturday, according to WKRG. Don’t worry, there’s video,” wrote Sophie Weiner for Splinter News, celebrating the first time a milkshake was thrown toward a right-wing politician in the U.S.
CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil laughed about the incidents: “In the latest of a series of attacks on right-wing politicians, Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage was doused with a milkshake yesterday. That was actually salted caramel if anyone is wondering.”
“I’m sure it feels great. I’m sure people love the feeling. Pictures fly around the world,” he added.
Pro-censorship Vox blogger and LGBT activist Carlos Maza issued a ringing endorsement for milkshaking as well:

Some journalists are even apologizing for the violence that Ngo endured at the hands of the ANTIFA domestic terrorists.
Thread from a great journalist who routinely embeds w/ hate groups. This doesn't discount that the situation is fucked and that violence should be unacceptable. But there are also serious risks involved with putting yourself in volatile situations. Any journalist should know that https://t.co/KPmaiSrmoM

I can't believe that the totally objective "journalist" who shows up to every far right protest in order to sanitize what they're doing and claim the people who oppose them are The Real Fascists wasn't welcomed with open arms by antifa today. you hate to see it

Quillete published an article demonstrating the ties between ANTIFA domestic terrorists and mainstream media journalists in May. The ties couldn’t be more obvious in the aftermath of the vicious left-wing assault against Ngo.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
