Andy Ngo was discovered infiltrating an antifa march last Friday night, beaten and chased into a hotel.
People in a May 28 protest crowd in front of the Multnomah County Justice Center chased, tackled and punched someone they believed to be right-wing author Andy Ngo, pursuing him through the streets of Portland until he hid inside The Nines hotel.
The enraged group pulled on the hotel’s front doors and shouted, “You wanna kill us? You wanna kill us, Andy?” at The Nines staff while the hotel staff frantically tried to hold the entrance closed.
Antifa have hated Ngo long before they developed the rationalization that he was a mortal threat, by “providing atomwaffen with kill lists”, mostly by posting publicly available arrestee names and mugshots. With this justification, they’ve declared him fair game and it sounds like he received a pretty good beating before they let him get away.
A group of five to 10 people in identity-obscuring clothing called “black bloc” followed the person they suspected of being Ngo for blocks, inquiring who he was. At one point, the person they pursued said his name was Jake. In front of the AC Marriott, the group tried to unmask the unknown man. He ran for blocks until someone in the pursuing group tackled him—at Southwest 4th Avenue and Morrison Street—and punched him several times after his head hit the brick sidewalk.
A nearby man holding a skateboard admonished the group, saying that their quarry looked like he’d “had enough.” However, when someone nearby shouted that the person they were assaulting was Ngo, the skateboard-carrying man changed his attitude, swearing and joining the group.
Only as I was writing this did Ngo take to Twitter to confirm his identity, five days after the assault:
The Nines Hotel downtown is fairly swanky, and the Denver Nuggets were staying there during the little siege Friday night. This isn’t the first time the hotel was used as sanctuary for antifa’s would-be victims; I recall during the post-election rioting of 2016 a group besieging the lobby after someone wearing a MAGA hat fled within.
Some people are suggesting a man found floating in the Willamette River after going missing on May 1, May Day, was abducted off the street by antifa. He was last heard from on a phone call telling a friend he was being followed by someone through downtown Portland.
Also this weekend Ted Wheeler braved another night out and was assailed by a concerned citizen who said he “…gasses children in their homes where they cancer and die!”
The terrifying imagery:
The company has declined to remove the flags and Hardesty is issuing vague threats.
I’m convinced the anarchist movement here is suffering a crisis of numbers and cohesion–barely able to work up a beat-down of dainty Andy Ngo. Infighting is hinted at in their communications and nothing energizes, still, like defending the blacks against the Man, so they await the next George Floyd. But how much longer they can count on black rage is less a question than how much more can they themselves endure–of the most exhausting creature on the planet, the delusional and angry black American.
