Hey PartisanPress: Your Buddies At Antifa Just Beat Up A Reporter — Is THAT News?


Written by Wes Walker on July 1, 2019

They were targeting Andy Ngo by name the day before, and now he’s got a brain bleed — where are the Left and the LGBT to stand up for him?

Nowhere.

Ironically — but not surprisingly — it’s the Right who are standing up for him and his rights as both a journalist and a citizen, while Christians are praying for his speedy recovery.

Andy Ngo has been doing something few reporters have been brave enough to do — chronicling the periodic riots (so-called ‘protests’) that arise when Antifa decides it’s time to terrorize Portland. (Notwithstanding the heroic courage a certain Jim Acosta assures us that he personally displays on nearly a daily basis.)

Here’s Mr. Ngo talking to police after the attack. (Where were they when it happened? Good question. Others have wondered the same thing.)

Andy was on hand because he knows the kind of havoc these thugs are capable of unleashing. Havoc like this man getting beaten bloody with a crowbar:

It was hardly the first time they were showing their violent side:

When he went to do his job and report on the ‘protest’ he got attacked, just as they promised he would. That speaks to premeditation in their violence. This tweet was posted BEFORE the event.

Notice, yours truly was concerned for him as well. (My tweet was Eastern Time Zone, for anyone keeping score.)

Since he’s a gay man targeted (by name) for violence by masked thugs during Pride Month, you’d expect the usual suspects on the Left to rush to his defense, right?

Not so much.

Oh, right. He’s a minority too. Did we not mention that yet? His parents were refugees from Vietnam.

“My mother came from a family that was labeled bourgeois or middle class. They owned a jewelry business in their home which was taken after the collapse of the South Vietnamese government,”Ngo said. “They were thrown into the labor camp. My mother was only 16 at that time.”

…“Even though I am a sexual minority and I’m a person of color, I come from a family who were refugees so I feel so lucky to be able to have been born and raised in this country,”Ngo said.

“So yeah, when I see the American flag, I feel a sense of pride and honor of being part of that. And I regret that a lot of people see it as a symbol of violence that should be burnt.”

No wonder they don’t like him — he stands as a living repudiation of the Left’s identitarian victim-class politics.

And now they’ve turned the guy who’s very life repudiates the lie of their ‘oppressor’ narrative into an ACTUAL victim of PHYSICAL violence. Antifa, as we remember is the hate group that (former Maoist) Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and a few other Lefty broadcasters seem to have a soft spot for.

But Lemon somehow gets bent out of shape when Trump said ‘good people on both sides’ in a way that absolutely denounced violent extremism on left AND right.

Brian Stelter reported on the attack against Ngo — sort of. What he left out is more informative than what he actually included:

We’d consider that ‘deceptive editing’. Why would the ‘great defenders of free speech’ at the apples-and-bananas network want to hide the full extent of the violence perpetrated on a freaking colleague? Has it not occurred to anyone there that it could have just as easily been one of their own that got attacked? Or maybe that’s the point.

The partisan hacks Snopes got caught dismissing it as merely an ‘alleged’ attack, despite video evidence to support it:

So what exactly did they DO to Andy Ngo? They beat the hell out of him, left him with a bleeding brain and they robbed him of his video equipment.

This reaction was typical of the Left:

And let’s not forget:

This might be a good time to bring up Biden’s explicit defense of Antifa on no less than the day he launched his bid to be President. Seemed cynical then. Seems straight-up dangerous now. Remember the video he launched with?

Opposite the white supremacists, he hails as heroes the other group of protesters some of whom were simple counter-protesters, but some of whom were the Antifa agitators who had an established reputation of violent confrontation with bystanders using pepper spray, blunt instruments, or even makeshift grenades with wine bottles and quarter sticks of dynamite. Real ‘heroic’ people you’re cheering there. — Video and text here: ClashDaily

If THIS is what the Left is offering as their vision of America’s future, it’s a good thing we’ve got a fighter running and not some milquetoast politician like the LAST two guys the Republicans dug up to represent us.

Nolte: Gory Trump Throat-Cutting Art Decorates Portland Gallery

Facebook / One Grand Gallery

A gory illustration of someone slitting the throat of President Trump currently decorates the window of an art gallery in Portland, OR, with the caption “FUCK TRUMP.”

This picture taken on the street outside the One Grand Gallery has been making the rounds on Twitter.

Breitbart News was able to verify this is real via the gallery’s Facebook page (archived here). Also, photos of the gallery on its website reveal the windows facing the street are the same. This means that anyone driving or walking by, including small children, will be exposed, not only to a grisly photo depicting the assassination of a sitting president, but the “FUCK TRUMP” caption.

The event surrounding this particular gallery showing opened on July 13 and is called “Fuck you Mr. President.”

In the era of Trump, this kind of wishful thinking surrounding the grisly assassination of the president is nothing new, unfortunately. As Breitbart News has documented, the same establishment media that spent a week hounding a rodeo clown for wearing an Obama mask has devolved into open apologists — if not advocates — for violence against Trump and his supporters.

Last summer, CNN’s parent company, Time-Warner, was a sponsor of a play depicting the bloody assassination of the president. CNN’s Chris Cillizza has tweeted out video of Trump in crosshairs, and in the lead up to Trump’s inauguration, CNN openly fantasized about Trump’s assassination.

If the establishment media are eagerly shattering every norm regarding the safety of the president, we should not be surprised by the appalling behavior of a local art gallery.

This Labor Day Weekend Watch Out for “Living Wage” Surcharges on Restaurant Bills


waving flagBy Bethany Blankley September 2, 2016

Yep, it’s happening. To deal with the pressure of offering $15/hr. and or increased wages to employees, one Pacific cause of deathNorthwest restaurant chain decided to add a one percent “living wage” surcharge to all bills.

Restaurants Unlimited, Inc., a Seattle-based restaurant group, operates restaurants in 10 states. It owns Henry’s Tavern, Newport Seafood Grill, Stanford’s, and several others in Portland.

Regardless if it’s food or just drinks, diners can expect to see a one percent surcharge applied to their entire bill– before sales tax. The income from the surcharge is added to a separate payroll account, the company states.

The Oregonian reports that restaurants in Portland are taking similar approaches to offer “living wages” to their employees.

Restaurant Biwa and Nonna added a “health and wellness” surcharge to all bills. The surcharge is designed to fund health insurance and other employee benefits.

Le Pigeon and Park Kitchen, other eateries in the Portland area, ended the option for diners to tip, instead increased its prices. They hope the adjustment will compensate its servers and kitchen staff more fairly.
