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

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.”

  1. 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.

  2. GOOD!! It is about time someone stood up to these criminals – while you are at it, sue the mayor too.

  3. Wonder If The Police Will Protect The MAYORS Office During A Conflict With Portland CITIZENS ??

  4. Why aren’r these people i Jail?

  5. time for the Portland Mayor to be locked up! and the three arrest of terrorist should pay the price for their terrorist brothers and sisters

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

  7. 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.

  8. They are backed and funded by the Democrat party. And people still vote for these creeps.

  9. There has not been a level of such street warfare in the U.S like this since the sixties. Having lived through it back then I say this is worse. They say they are “anti-fascist” but use the same tactics. Such hate is unprecedented and yet the liberals say…..crickets! And this pathetic mayor is a disgrace.

  10. What happened to “protect and serve?”

    1. They Re Protecting their jobs and serving their own interests!

  11. These terrorists are just a bunch illiterate, unemployed losers, who empower themselves by ganging up on a single individual to make themselves feel important. Pretty sick and deranged! Someone needs to take charge there and it won’t be the unhinged mayor obviously!

  12. “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.”” Ummmm….stopping conflict…isn’t that part of a LEOs job description???

  13. Might just be time for someone to put together an underground team to infiltrate Antifa to know ahead of time where they are about to hit and use the element of surprise by unmasking them on video and posting on the evening news.

  14. The public officials need to be included in any legal action. I cannot understand why the DOJ is not involved. Conservatives are having their CIVIL RIGHTS trampled upon, and the DOJ doesn’t seem to be doing anything. I can remember when a policeman in Ferguson, MO, legally defended himself against a black man who was attacking him, and the black community rioted. The Eric Holder DOJ responded by investigating the POLICE DEPARTMENT. Are black people the only people who have civil rights, or do ALL OF US have civil rights? If the answer is “all of us”, then why isn’t the DOJ investigating ANTIFA AND the mayor and police of Portland? One of the mottos of law enforcement organizations is, “To Protect, and To Serve.” It appears that, in Portland, the police did neither of these things during the Antifa demonstration.

  15. The Mayor needs to be arrested and imprisoned with the Antifa animals he let roam free!

    1. The mayor is the first person she needs to sue. That’s where too start

  16. That’s how the back of Tom Metzger and his hate group was broken. Sue them into Oblivion and beyond

  17. The mayor needs to be sucked into a cement mixer.

    1. Antifa changes the meaning of anti- to something closer to aunty. They are a fascist terrorist group.

  18. Let’s be real, Antifa criminals are being financed and organized. Since Congress is now anti-constitutional, the DOJ should investigate and outlaw these bastards

  19. Thank God it’s about time these creeps are held accountable for their criminal behavior/cowards only attack if there are at least 20 against 1 wow how brave wouldn’t you want to know these “guys”

  20. I hope they have a “leader/s”. Because it is a group of cowards as they must cover their faces due to recognition possibility. If this is an allowed group, then whoever gave them the right to protest needs to be sued along with the group itself. Enough is enough!

  21. You say the Proud Boys are a white supremacist group. I didn’t know that white supremacists allowed minorities into or lead their groups. You probably think that Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager are NAZIs also. Do a better job

  22. The mayor is a miserable excuse for a human being.

  23. Everybody needs to send pictures so she can identify and sue who all was there..
