Huffington Post Senior Reporter Mocks Journalist Andy Ngo, Who Was Assaulted By Antifa

Huffington Post senior reporter Christopher Mathias went hard at Andy Ngo, the Quillette journalist who was assaulted Saturday by Antifa. Mathias, though he ostensibly felt like a tough guy at first when he taunted “fascists and their enablers are giant fucking snowflakes,” ended up deleting his Tweet. Mathias has worked at HuffPo for more than eight years, according to his LinkedIn profile.

BLP reported:

A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.

“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”

A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.

He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.

“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”

Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.

Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.

Police also said that some of the attackers threw quick-dry cement from milkshake cups, though it is unconfirmed if that is what was thrown at Ngo.

“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,” Portland PD, who stood down during the violence said.
