A Conservative Journalist Andy Ngo was attacked at an Antifa riot in Portland on Saturday. Further, he sustained several injuries, including a brain bleed after milkshakes, fists, and several other objects were hurled at him.
In addition to the beatings, the journalist sustained onslaughts of pepper spray and silly string. Also, the journalist’s equipment was stolen by members of the terrorist organization.
Speaking on the matter, Andy Ngo complained to local authorities about the assaults he endured and questioned where they were while he was being attacked. Footage of the crime shows a group of masked protesters swarming Ngo, an editor for Quillette, punching him, and pelting him with milkshakes.

According to authorities, the milkshakes that were thrown contained quick-drying cement. Further, an investigation has been opened into the matter.
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.

According to Quillete, where Andy Ngo is a photojournalist and editor; “The Antifa thugs who attacked Quillette editor and photojournalist Andy Ngo in Portland yesterday did not quite manage to crack his skull. But they did manage to induce a brain hemorrhage that required Ngo’s overnight hospitalization. (For those seeking to support Ngo financially as he recovers, there is a third-party fundraising campaign.) The scene was captured by local reporter Jim Ryan, whose video can be accessed at the link below. We caution readers that it is an unsettling spectacle—by which we mean not only the violence itself, but the unconstrained glee this pack of mostly young men exhibit as they brutalize a journalist whom they’d spent months demonizing on social media, and whom they’d explicitly singled out for attack.”
