Lawyer of Conservative Reporter Attacked by Antifa Sends Fiery Warning of Plan to Sue Them into ‘Oblivion’

Jim Ryan/Twitter

The attorney of the conservative journalist who was assaulted by members of Antifa over the weekend gave a fiery warning on Twitter to his client’s alleged assailants.

On Saturday, Andy Ngo — a reporter for Quillette with a long history of covering Antifa protests — was attacked by members of the militant political organization as he was covering a protest between them and the white supremacist group the Proud Boys in Portland, Oregon.

Days later, in the early hours of Monday morning, Ngo’s attorney — Harmeet K. Dhillon — took to Twitter warning the Antifa “criminals” that she would sue them into “oblivion” for the attack, and that not even their “avocado toast stands” or “yoga studios” would be safe.

She also blasted the “effete impotence” of Portland’s “cowed city government.”

“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,” tweeted Dhillon.

Videos posted online showed that Ngo was hit with milkshakes reportedly containing a concrete mixture before being beaten by the Antifa protesters. Dhillon said that Ngo suffered a “brain bleed” and stayed in the hospital overnight following the attack.

The attack prompted severe backlash against the Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler (D-Ore.) — who has supported Antifa protests in the past — with Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) calling for a federal law enforcement investigation into and “legal action against” the mayor.

Wheeler had previously come under fire after he stopped the Portland police from intervening during Antifa protests against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last year. Officials from the agency had requested police protection during the protests but the Portland mayor refused, citing that he did not want for his officers to be “sucked into a conflict.”

Antifas is a domestic terrorist organisation. Send in the US Marshalls and the US Army when they show up. Antifas may go away after watching some of their comrades get rinsed out of the tracks of a Bradly Armoured Vehicle.

Antifa reminds me of what I’ve read about the NAZI brownshirts. Their actions are identical.

What’s next for Portland’s Antifa group—lynchings of anyone that dares to identify as conservative? Antifa, my ass. They are the fascists themselves. They are anti-free speech.
