If you’ve been reading Legal Insurrection for a while, you are familiar with independent investigative journalist and Quillette editor Andy Ngo.  We frequently feature his work.

Today, I am horrified and saddened to report that Ngo was attacked by antifa-fascists in Portland, Oregon.

He is, thankfully, okay, but this incident shows yet again that antifa is the exact opposite of what it claims to be.

Ngo’s twitter feed has more:

Portland police are busy with milkshake complaints, apparently.

Maybe they could talk to Ngo?

This is breaking news, so we will have more as we learn more.  In the meantime, here’s an interesting discussion, with video and additional tweets, about this reported assault on Ngo.

Stephen Miller asks an interesting question:

Ngo is not backed by a major network or city; he works independently and relies on selling his stories and on the kindness of his readership via PayPal.

Michelle Malkin has set up a GoFundMe for Ngo.  She writes,

Lovers of liberty and supporters of independent media,

My friend, Portland, Oregon-based journalist Andy Ngo, was beaten and robbed today by Antifa while covering the latest paroxysms of left-wing violence. Andy has been singled out, doxxed, and targeted by SJW thugs while police stand by and do nothing.

You can watch video of the assault here:

And Andy immediately after the beating here:

Please help raise money for his security and medical needs, and to help him replace his stolen equipment.

I said during my CPAC speech earlier this year that we need to stand with those reporting and fighting on the front lines. Andy is one of the intrepid journalists doing the job no one else will do.

I’ve been in touch with him and he has given me the green light to create this fund. All funds will help him continue his invaluable work. We need him back in action ASAP.

And if you work in law enforcement or private security, please contact me directly to help form an effective security plan to keep Andy safe.

Thank you for your support!

In liberty,
Michelle Malkin

Please help if you can and are so-inclined.
