The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on 10 July 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic. Its two-flag logo, designed by Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists members Max Keilson and Max Gebhard, remains a widely used symbol of militant anti-fascism.[3
You with only a picture of a guy with a baton assumes he was with one of the larpers , same with the beard guy
No, I haven't said that. What I have repeatedly said is that there are two opposing groups of LARPers who are both willing combatants. In specific instances, like that May Day altercation at the Cider Riot, that number was probably 90%+ of the people there. In other instances, I'm sure that the number is far smaller.
But if you look at the violent altercations, many of the same people are involved over and over again. Are you denying that?
Your first comments in this was Ngo being a bad guy for doxxing
Releasing the name of a person with a mask in a violent thug organization isn’t doxxing
If it is, you releasing the names of unmasked thugs in a violent organization is also doxxing
Your first comment was to take blame away from Antifa beating Ngo by discussing other groups being violent, something Ngo had nothing to do with
Your first comment on this issue was about how proud boys are bad too and Ngo is a bad guy
You implied the old man (and maybe bearded guy )were combatants before you had proof.
You claimed NGOs injuries were being exaggerated with no proof
First off, I don't for a second believe this "brain bleed" bull#. But let's assume that he had a literal intracranial hemorrhage for the sake of argument. He sustained this from what was it, two punches?
Oh and more on those milkshakes that so many people on the left had a chuckle about.
Now people are putting quick drying cement in them as they throw them at conservatives.
That is disgusting and you know it
You think releasing the name of a woman in a mask who was engaged in violence with a violent thug organization doxxing
You out the names of people in the proud boys without naming Antifa, so I guess that makes you a bad actor as well
You complain about Ngo taking a side and being a bad actor, yet all the msm does this and I never here you call them bad actors. And I know if they get beat you won’t have your first comment be about how bad they are
Look, just like you couldn’t wait to go after the Covington kids with clips out of context after you knew they were unjustly smeared in order to take the heat off of leftists that acted horribly you are doing the same here
You can make excuses for your position all you want
You accused a victim of left wing violence of exaggerating injuries with no proof
You did so because you are a partisan. Truly revolting

People are angry I named the #antifa woman (Heather Clark) who got in a fight on May Day & was knocked out. She’s a local activist who has been in media for violently sabotaging an event on PSU campus. Her identity is relevant to the story.

Yet you have not names one
Antifa personthe name of the person who knocked her out with a baton or the name of the person who hit her in the face
This you are only doxxing people on one side

Here's how this outrage machine works. Two groups of assholes beat each other up. This is what these people do for entertainment. It's not the start of some civil war.
Then the propagandists come along with bull# stories to get you all triggered.
This old guy wasn't some hapless innocent bystander, who was just peacefully minding his own business when he got whacked in the head.
Here are the pictures The Blaze won't show you.
Dude was there to get into #. He's part of the problem just like the assholes on the other side.

Let's assume this is 100% the case. These losers gather just to beat each other up and the press spins it however they want. I don't doubt you are probably right.
If I was a resident of Portland or paid government salaries in Oregon, I couldn't care less. I would not give a hoot what the press says.
I expect law and order. Period. If folks want to exercise their 1A rights, have at it. But, the 1A does not include anything about crowbars and cement milkshakes.
The response from the local officials is what bothers me. What happens when someone gets killed? We all know it's coming. Who will they blame then when all they did was enable this garbage?
What they said: A large man in a Proud Boys shirt says the June 29 assault on Ngo happened because he ignored Proud Boys' offer of protection. "Andy Ngo was #ing told that if he wanted protection from the PBs [Proud Boys], he went in with us and he went out with us," he says.
Why it matters: Ngo has claimed to be an independent journalist. It is increasingly clear he is coordinating his movements and his message with right-wing groups. On Aug. 26, The Portland Mercury published an allegation by a Vancouver infiltrator of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer. "There's an understanding," the man told the Mercury, "that Patriot Prayer protects him and he protects them." Ngo could not be reached for comment.
