No, because two of the Antifa protestors are moving their hands in sync with the chant.(2) Brutal assault by Antifa on journalist Andy Ngo Andy Ngo beaten up by antifa activists at Portland protestPolice are hit with eggs, milkshakes; crowd ordered to disperse in latest street clashBy Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times - Saturday, June 29, 2019An Oregon photojournalist who covers Portland’s frequently violent protest scene was taken to the hospital Saturday after being attacked by black-masked antifa activists.Andy Ngo, an editor at the online platform Quillette, said he was struck on the head and face "multiple times" by antifa protesters, who also threw objects and a milkshake at him as he tried to walk away.The attack, recorded in part by the Oregonian and posted on Twitter, came during Saturday’s Rose City Antifa counter-protest against a rally held by the far-right group Proud Boys in downtown Portland.Mr. Ngo had bloody cuts and bruises on his face, and his hair and shirt were covered with milkshake, as shown in a video he posted on Twitter shortly after the assault."I just got beat up by the crowd — no police at all — in the middle of the street," Mr. Ngo said in the post. "And they stole my GoPro. And they punched me several times in my face and head, and I’m bleeding."He was shown being treated by authorities and later tweeted that he had been transported to the hospital.The Oregonian’s Jim Ryan, who posted video of the attack, reported, "First skirmish I’ve seen. Didn’t see how this started, but @MrAndyNgo got roughed up."— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) June 29, 2019 Mr. Ngo, a right-leaning journalist who regularly films Portland’s protest activity, has written for the Wall Street Journal, National Review, RealClearPolitics and other publications.Before the protest, Rose City Antifa had singled out Mr. Ngo in an online post promoting the "Community Self Defense Against Proud Boy Attack," calling him a "[l]ocal far-right Islamophobic journalist."Video posts of Saturday’s clash showed a few dozen right-wing activists holding a rally while hundreds of counter-protesters marched in the street amid a heavy police presence.Portland police, who urged protesters to clear the streets and stay on the sidewalks, tweeted that officers had been hit with eggs and milkshakes.Police later declared the event a "civil disturbance and unlawful assembly," warning that those who failed to disperse would be subject to arrest.PPB advising this is now a civil disturbance and unlawful assembly. If you do not disperse, you are subject to arrest or use of force.— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 29, 2019 Video showed protesters chanting "Proud Boy scum, off our streets" and, "Whose streets? Our streets!""The antifascist protest has totally shut down Portland streets," tweeted Shane Burley, author of "Fascism Today: What It Is and How to End It."(3) Andy Ngo a Gay journalist of color beaten by Antifa 2, 2019A Leftist Mob Attacked Me in PortlandI have been targeted by Antifa and its allies for my critical reporting of their violent extremism.Speaking to WSJ Opinion, journalist Andy Ngo describes how Antifa targeted him during protests in Portland on June 29, 2019. He also details Antifa's motivation and questioned when the leadership of Portland, Oregon's largest city, will act. Image: Andy NgoBy Andy NgoJuly 2, 2019 7:22 pm ETPortland, Ore.‘No hate! No fear!" chanted the left-wing crowd as they marched downtown Saturday. I walked to the front of the line to record the protesters with my new GoPro camera when I was suddenly slammed on the back of my head with something hard. Dazed and still hearing faint chants of "no hate," I was then punched and kicked by perhaps a dozen masked people in black. At an Antifa event meant to resist "fascist violence," I—a gay journalist of color—was beaten so badly that I was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage....(4) After Antifa Violence, Anti-Mask Law Should Be Passed: Portland Police Chief ZACHARY STIEBERJuly 4, 2019 Updated: July 4, 2019 ShareAfter the Antifa extremist group was caught on video assaulting at least three people over the weekend in Portland, Oregon, the police chief there called for a law that would ban masks.Antifa, a far-left group that openly advocates violence, was seen on June 30 beating journalist Andy Ngo as well as two other men. Ngo said he suffered a brain hemorrhage. Three people were arrested and five suspects are being sought.Antifa appeared in Portland to protest against Proud Boys and #HimToo, groups advocating free speech, men’s rights, and other principles, which reportedly obtained permits for their events."We have to do something differently," Portland police Chief Danielle Outlaw said on July 3, speaking to reporters for the first time since the beatings, reported the left-leaning Oregonian. Neither Outlaw nor the Oregonian mentioned Antifa by name."There were entities that planned a brawl in the city of Portland and no one seems to be upset about that. … Entities came here for a fight. … I don’t even know what they were protesting against," Outlaw added.Outlaw said that Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is also the city’s police commissioner, didn’t order police officers to stand down despite allegations by the police union president and Ngo that officers stood by while the violence was waged. In video footage that shows Ngo and the two men being assaulted, no police officers were visible during the assaults.Outlaw said the bureau has 128 positions for officers, and noted law enforcement from nearby agencies, such as the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, have declined requests to enter the city and assist officers in dealing with the frequent clashes between Antifa and groups like the Proud Boys.Acknowledging police have to pick and choose when to intervene, Outlaw said officers intervene in teams "whenever we can do it safely."She then called for the law against masks."We cannot allow people to continue to use the guise of free speech to commit a crime,’’ Outlaw said. "A lot of people are emboldened because they know they can’t be identified.’’A number of Antifa members have said one reason they wear masks is to avoid being identified.Fifteen states ban masks, including Alabama, Mississippi, and New York. A bill proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018 would have criminalized "committing certain offenses while in disguise."Anyone wearing a mask who injured, threatened, intimidated, or oppressed people "in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege" would have been imprisoned for up to 15 years if the bill had passed.The bill was titled the "Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018." It was never brought to a vote.Reacting to Outlaw’s comments, Kimberly McCullough, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon, said that an anti-mask law in the state might violate the First Amendment.(5) Antifa Member Indicted for Portland Assault Member Indicted For Assault That Savaged Man’s ScalpGage Halupowski was arrested along with two other activistsBy: Jack Murphy  |@NeonNettle on 10th July 2019 @ 6.00pm © pressThe Antifa member was part of the group who ganged up on a man and split his scalp open, according to police. A 23-year-old 'Antifa fighter' has been indicted by a grand jury over his alleged role in violent clashes during protests in June, according to reports.The Antifa member was part of the group who ganged up on a man and split his scalp open, according to police.Gage Halupowski was arrested along with two other activists following clashes in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.A grand jury indicted Halupowski with criminal charges, including second-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, attempted assault of a public safety officer, and interfering with a peace officer, according to the Oregonian.During the confrontations between right-wing and left-wing protesters, Halupowski was allegedly involved in an attack on two people, Adam Kelly, and John Blum.A police officer witnessed Halupowski run up behind Kelly, who was trying to stop others from beating Blum and hit him on the top of his head with an expandable baton, according to a probable cause affidavit. Halupowski then punched another officer’s arm as he was trying to arrest him, the report says.Footage from the Portland Tribune shows protesters with masks attacking Blum, a man with grey hair wearing a backpack.The two other people arrested on June 29 are scheduled to appear before the court on August 9. Blum was part of a right-wing rally sponsored by the Him Too movement, which purports to protect men from undue accusations of sexual harassment, according to the Washington Times.Another rally by the right-wing group Proud Boys was also scheduled for the same date and place. The attackers reportedly belonged to the radical left-wing movement Antifa.One of those injured during the clashes in Portland was journalist Andy Ngo, who works for the online magazine Quillette, and was covering protests and counter-protests. Antifa activists allegedly targeted him.The two other people arrested on June 29 are scheduled to appear before the court on August 9. They were charged with harassment due to allegedly throwing milkshakes and water on their opponents.Portland Police is still trying to identify other individuals involved in the violence that occurred on the day.Last week, the lawyer representing journalist Andy Ngo, who was also brutally attacked by Antifa, warned the George Soros-funded group she plans to sue them "into oblivion."Goodnight, everyone except Antifa criminals who I plan to sue into oblivion and then sow salt into their yoga studios and avocado toast, stands until nothing grows there, not even the glimmer of a violent criminal conspiracy aided by the effete impotence of a cowed city government," Harmeet K. Dhillon wrote.Ngo was brutally assaulted on Saturday while he was covering Antifa protesters.The journalist was kicked, punched, and had milkshakes thrown on him by the left-wing thugs, which was all captured on video before going viral on social media.(6) Portland man indicted in connection with violent June 29 protest Jul 9, 5:16 PMBy Jayati Ramakrishnan | The Oregonian/OregonLiveA grand jury on Tuesday indicted a Portland man for his alleged involvement in a June 29 protest downtown that turned violent. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.Gage Halupowski, 23, faces four criminal charges — second-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, attempted assault of a public safety officer and interfering with a peace officer.The protest was one of several in Portland on June 29 as left and right-wing demonstrators held rival gatherings downtown, halting traffic and public transit for much of the afternoon. Police declared a civil disturbance and unlawful assembly a little after 3 p.m., and the crowd dispersed before the afternoon was over. Medics treated eight people for injuries, including three police officers. Conservative writer Andy Ngo was one of the people injured, and he appeared to be attacked by antifa members.A probable cause affidavit says Halupowski was one of many protestors involved in a fight at Pioneer Courthouse Square. In the affidavit, a Portland police officer states that several people in black clothes and masks were chasing a man, and then kicked, punched and hit him with batons after he fell to the ground. The officer said he saw Halupowski run up behind Adam Kelly, a man who had tried to stop the group from beating the other man, and struck him on top of the head with an expandable baton. The report also states that when another Portland police officer attempted to arrest Halupowski, he punched her in the arm and then ran away before being arrested.Two others were charged with harassment and disorderly conduct at the June 29 protests, and both have court dates set for Aug. 9. James Stocks, 20, faces four counts of harassment, and is suspected of throwing a milkshake at a group of people. Maria Dehart, 22, was charged with one count of harassment and one of second-degree disorderly conduct, for allegedly throwing a water bottle at a man who was recording the protest.—Jayati Ramakrishnan; 503-221-4320;; @JRamakrishnanOR(7) Soros-backed activists say Pelosi Aiding 'Fascism' by condemning Antifa Hasson4:45 PM 09/10/2017Leading anti-Trump "resistance" group Refuse Fascism has condemned House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other critics of Antifa, saying they are abetting the "fascism" of the Trump administration.The resistance group issued a statement Saturday declaring its support for Antifa and hammering its critics, even as Pelosi and others on the left attempt to distance themselves from Antifa, the violent far-left movement that federal authorities have said is engaging in domestic terror activity. Refuse Fascism specifically noted Pelosi's criticisms of Antifa, before attacking all critics of Antifa as siding with "fascism." The statement was titled "Shameful, Dangerous, Wrong Attacks on Antifa.""Differences over tactics, where they exist, must not divide the people's resistance. Distancing and effectively joining in the threats and attack by this fascist regime, and other government authorities, is not only morally bankrupt, it also accommodates and quickly leads to collaboration with fascism," Refuse Fascism stated."To stand against injustice at this moment requires firmly understanding that the attacks against 'Antifa' are designed to intimidate, suppress, and divide all opposition to fascism. The threats and attacks on Antifa and anyone else standing up against fascism, especially attempts by the state to brand them as 'terrorist' or put them on watchlists, must be opposed."The FBI and Department of Homeland Security say Antifa group are engaging in "domestic terrorist violence," Politico first reported.Pelosi finally condemned Antifa on August 29, after Antifa members violently attacked peaceful anti-Marxist demontrators in Berkeley, California. (RELATED: Berkeley Police Arrest 13 Protesters In Connection To Antifa Violence)"Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts," Pelosi wrote. "The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted." (RELATED: Public School Teachers Behind Violent Antifa Group)Refuse Fascism has consistently organized mass demonstrations, in Berkeley and elsewhere, that have turned into riots. The group is backed by a progressive charity that is in turn funded by left-wing financier George Soros, a major labor union and several large companies, as TheDC's Chuck Ross first reported. The group lists Ivy League professor and DNC platform member Cornel West as one of the group's "initiators."(8) Walmart selling ‘Antifa’ t-shirts Selling ‘Antifa’ Fan Gearby AMANDA HOUSE1 Dec 2017Walmart is selling "Antifa" clothing that "will [allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism)." The mega-retailer is offering at least 13 different sweatshirts "made in Mexico of 100% COTTON for all-day comfort" promoting the group whose activities were "formally classified" by the Obama Administration "as domestic terrorist violence" as early as April 2016, according to Politico, despite the group’s efforts to downplay this determination."Antifa," or Anti-Fascist Action, is an informal grouping of communist, anarchist, and other far-left street gangs. Drawing inspiration from the German Communist Party’s street fighters of the 1930s, the modern movement grew out of the European far-left punk scene in the 1980s. These unapologetically violent bands of leftists were largely unknown in the United States until recent years, when America’s post-Occupy Wall Street far-left began adopting the name.Antifa is well known for dozens of violent crimes against people they consider "fascists" on both sides of the Atlantic. As Breitbart News’s Ian Mason cataloged, to Antifa, "fascists" include "in no particular order":…Trump supporters, other Trump supporters, members of Germany’s populist AfD party, a 20-year-old woman who chose to wear a Spanish-flag bracelet, a Philadelphia free speech rally, former UKIP and Brexit leader Nigel Farage, libertarian VICE News co-founder Gavin McInnes, French policemen, and Israeli-owned bookstores. Interesting, a Salafist Muslim who attacked a "filthy white" Antifa writer because he disrespected Islam does not qualify.None of this has stopped Antifa from receiving a rash of positive press from American left-leaning media outlets; acceptance from both Democratic politicians and Republicans like John McCain, Marco Rubio, and Mitt Romney; and, now, its own clothing collection at Walmart."Just remember to keep creating a better world," the clothing advertisements encourage.This glorification of Antifa was mirrored Friday by the New York Times, which published a fashion style guide for the group: "practical advice on how to dress for a riot." In their guide, the Times explains why a uniform look is needed, from Breitbart News’s Charlie Nash:"These defensive methods work only if there are enough black-clad others nearby. A single person in all black and multiple face masks is an eye grabber."Finally, the Times claimed that dressing in black militant gear and concealing your face forms an "emotional connection" with other rioters."Tactical considerations aside, it’s this emotional connection with other members of the bloc that many practitioners highlight the most in interviews," they proclaimed. "It’s why soldiers and police have uniforms."Walmart has come under previous criticism for selling "Black Lives Matter" shirts and other items. Following a request from the national Fraternal Order of Police, the retail giant eventually removed one of the items last December, shirts that said "Bulletproof," but refused to remove the rest.As with the "Black Lives Matter" paraphernalia, the Antifa products are being sold by a third party manufacturer, in this case, Tee Bangers, on Walmart’s website.(9) NYT "practical advice on how to dress for a riot" York Times Glorifies Violent Antifa Rioters with Style Guide, Tactical Adviceby CHARLIE NASH1 Dec 201767 The New York Times has glorified Antifa and its more violent "black bloc" rioters with a style guide, complete with riot gear advice. In their article, titled "What to Wear to Smash the State," the New York Times detailed the fashion of violent far-left rioters who enjoy "punching Nazis," before advising what to wear during violent protests and riots."This mass of solid black descending upon the park in Berkeley, hunting for fascists, was an intimidating aesthetic. That’s by design," they declared, before quoting an anarchist who claimed that covering your face and dressing in uniform "makes it easier for saboteurs to take the offensive against storefronts, banks and any other material symbols and power centers of capitalism and the state."Despite quoting the anarchist, who openly admitted that the black clothing and covered faces were used to evade police officers while committing crimes, the New York Times attempted to claim that the style is a safety measure to prevent being identified by "white supremacist groups.""The creation of mass anonymity protects practitioners from the threat of post-action doxxing by white supremacist groups, a process by which their identities and contact information, including addresses and places of employment, are publicized," they claimed. "People at home can use this information to harass and threaten. Similarly, police and other agencies have staff devoted to documenting demonstrations, and they work to identify people on film and video. These are among the reasons that some anarchists and anti-fascists advocate smashing cameras at demonstrations." Apparently, the New York Times favors the "two x" spelling of "doxing" typically reserved for people new to the Internet.In their article, the New York Times continued by giving "practical advice on how to dress for a riot.""There is more practical advice on how to dress for a riot. One should decide on organic or synthetic gloves before participating in an action: Wool and cotton may allow chemical contaminants, like pepper spray, to absorb, while nylon can melt if you grab something hot, which historically has included some kinds of tear-gas canisters but can include various things on fire," they advised, before adding, "These defensive methods work only if there are enough black-clad others nearby. A single person in all black and multiple face masks is an eye grabber."Finally, the Times claimed that dressing in black militant gear and concealing your face forms an "emotional connection" with other rioters."Tactical considerations aside, it’s this emotional connection with other members of the bloc that many practitioners highlight the most in interviews," they proclaimed.

Right now, many think, that job is punching Nazis.By RICK PAULASNOV. 29, 2017In late August, a crowd of thousands — primarily leftists and liberals — cascaded down Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, Calif. They were marching on a spattering of right-wingers, Trump supporters and Nazis who were gathering under the mission to say "no to Marxism in America." At the front of the march were about 100 people dressed in head-to-toe black.According to many people present, this was the largest so-called black bloc they’d seen. This medley of black-clad anarchists, anti-fascists (known as "antifa" activists) and their fellow travelers was a response to the previous week’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. There, protests ended with 19 injured and 32-year-old Heather Heyer killed when James Fields, an admirer of Hitler who demonstrated with white supremacists, drove his car into a crowd.This mass of solid black descending upon the park in Berkeley, hunting for fascists, was an intimidating aesthetic. That’s by design."Cops wear camouflage when they arrest people in city drug raids," said Ben, a Bay Area activist. "But they’re in a city. It doesn’t help them, but it makes them look more intimidating." Ben says he has participated in protests since 2000, including Bush/Gore, Occupy Oakland and Black Lives Matter. (The Times agreed to use only his first name because of the threat of harassment, online or otherwise, by activists.) "A group of people all dressed in black can be intimidating," he said.Is that intimidation the motive or just a benefit? Do black bloc practitioners dress up because, as many progressives wonder, they want to commit crimes? What do they get out of "masking up"? Where does uniform merge with tactic? ...A version of this article appears in print on November 30, 2017, on Page D1 of the New York edition with the headline: Black Is Always in Fashion.
