Antifa has been beating, busting and physically attacking US conservatives for over a year now.
On Saturday afternoon Quillette gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo was beaten and robbed by several Antifa attackers at a Portland protest march.
Ngo was later hospitalized Saturday night with a brain bleed following the brutal Antifa attack as he covered dueling left-right demonstrations in Portland, Oregon, Ngo’s attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon said.
Since Saturday Deputy Chair Keith Ellison quietly deleted his tweet praising the terrorist group Anfifa.
Dems in damage-control mode. Deputy Chair of the DNC Keith Ellison deleted his tweet supporting Antifa.

Congressman Calls For Antifa to be Labeled a Domestic Terror Organization
Numerous people were violently attacked by far-left thugs during the rally, including journalist Andy Ngo, who was doused with milkshakes containing quick drying cement and had to be treated for brain bleed.
Two other attendees were attacked with metal poles and maced, leaving one with deep gashes in his head that required 25 stitches.
As we reported earlier, Antifa members are also threatening to carry out acid attacks against conservatives at an upcoming free speech event in Washington DC.
This prompted Congressman Jim Banks to call for Antifa to be investigated by authorities as a domestic terror group.
In light of events this weekend in Portland, Oregon, I call on @POTUS, @TheJusticeDept, & @FBI to investigate #Antifa & declare them a domestic terrorist organization. Their avowal of violence & routine intimidation, harassment, & assault of Americans has no place in our country.

“In light of events this weekend in Portland, Oregon, I call on @POTUS, @TheJusticeDept, & @FBI to investigate #Antifa & declare them a domestic terrorist organization. Their avowal of violence & routine intimidation, harassment, & assault of Americans has no place in our country,” tweeted the Indiana Congressman.
This is not the first time that Antifa, which is vehemently defended by many media personalities on the left, has been bracketed in the context of domestic terror.
Back in July 2017, the Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey officially listed Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization after a rash of violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.
“In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations,” stated the advisory, before going on to list a number of violent disruptions, including Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at the University of California Berkeley on February 1st, which was cancelled after members of Antifa violently attacked free speech advocates.
According to a January 2017 Politico report, federal authorities had been warning state and local authorities since early 2016 that Antifa was engaging in “domestic terrorist violence”.

Kanye Tells Letterman: Trump Supporters Bullied, 'Treated Like Enemies of America'
This article was sourced from NewsBustersNetflix’s season 2 of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman starts with an interview with rapper Kanye West, which leads to an enlightening conversation about Trump supporters getting bullied and media groupthink that liberals like Letterman don't often get to hear.
After talking about mental health, Kanye mentions the media bullying the masses to think certain ways, saying, "We’re, like, completely bullied by the media, both celebrities and the masses, to think certain things and have group thought... we're driven crazy."
Kanye's said in the past that wearing a Make America Great Again hat is about showing liberal bullies he's not afraid to speak his mind. He points out that there are plenty of diverse people out there who support Trump but they hide it because they are too afraid:
We don’t all have to feel the same way about things. This is my thing with Trump. We don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel, and we have the right to have a conversation, a dialogue, not a diatribe about it. Like, say, when I wear the hat, it’s not about politics. It’s not about policies. For me, once again: fear. I got people that I work with, black, female, all different types of people that I work with that love Trump, voted for Trump, scared for [their] life to tell anyone.
Of course, Letterman, lefty demagogue that he is, starts spouting off about voter suppression and Trump hurting people. Kanye then goes further explaining about how people are afraid to wear a MAGA hat for fear of being bullied and beat up, and saying that Trump supporters are "treated like enemies of America.”
David: You know what I was stunned by in the midterm elections was the aggressive organization and attempt at voter suppression. Now, we’re not talking about the 1918, we’re talking about 2018, and it’s still going on and being encouraged. So, if I see a person I admire talking about [how] Donald Trump can think whatever he does, I wonder if those thoughts indirectly aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.
Kanye: Well, how do you feel for the people that voted for his him that are being treated like enemies of America, because that’s what they felt, and they had that opportunity?
David: Every time there’s a presidential election: “time for a change.” It’s endemic. It’s part of the system, and its what keeps this democracy in motion, and it’s always the argument, “You know what the country needs? Is a businessman to run it like a business.” So, the people that voted for him, I understand that, but I wonder to myself, “Are these people ultimately going to be victimized?” And I think now, the people, in good faith, looking to get the country to help them a little more than it has by electing a business guy, I think are now being hurt for it, and I would think that, would not try it again.
Kanye: Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?
David: I just been beat up cause people didn’t like me.
David: But I know what you’re saying.
Kanye: The idea is the bullying.
David: Who’s the bully in this scenario?
Kanye: Well, definitely liberals bully people who are Trump supporters. It’s not just calm. You can’t just go and wear the hat. You can’t just go, it’s like, “Fuck you!” Like it’s like.. bro, I have… People, the thing is, in America, we have rights, and we have rights to open the conversation.
David: Well, nobody’s arguing that there shouldn’t be an ongoing conversation. I don’t think you meet any resistance there. Things need to be talked about.
Obviously, Letterman is wrong on this. Trump supporters are shunned and treated like they don't deserve to even be a part of the national conversation. The media buy into this and push their narrative that automatically assumes anyone wearing a MAGA hat must be a bigoted bully (think of the news reaction to the Covington Kids and Jussie Smollett).
Kanye can be off the wall sometimes, but it’s still nice to see a celebrity not afraid to speak up against the liberal media and trigger them by wearing a MAGA hat in public.
Michael Knowles on Antifa attack on conservative journalist: Media, politicians largely turning a blind eye
This article was sourced from Foxnews
A confrontation between far right and left-wing groups in Portland resulted in an attack on conservative journalist Andy Ngo, and political commentator Michael Knowles said Monday that politicians and the media are intentionally ignoring the issue.
Ngo, who writes regularly about Antifa, was at a rally held by the Proud Boys, which faced counter-protesting from Antifa. Video from the incident doesn't show what precipitated the attack or what followed it, but Ngo can be seen being kicked, punched, doused with a milkshake and sprayed with an unknown substance.
The so-called "milkshakes" reportedly contained quick-drying cement, pepper spray and raw eggs.
Three people were later arrested in connection to the attack and other violence during the confrontation in Portland.
Calling Antifa a "domestic terrorist organization" on "Fox & Friends," Knowles denounced the attack on Ngo and questioned why there has not been more widespread condemnation by figures in media and politics. The mayor of Portland and the city's police department have faced criticism for failing to make a public statement about the attack on Ngo.
"They are turning up these attacks and the politicians are turning a blind eye because we are approaching an election year," Knowles said.
"They will not intimidate any of us. We will not be intimidated into silence," he continued.
Ngo posted photos from the emergency room after the attack on Sunday where his face appeared bruised, and he claimed to be suffering from a brain hemorrhage.
Some media figures came to Ngo's defense on Twitter, including NBC host Willie Geist and CNN's Jake Tapper, who argued that violence against individuals for their political beliefs should never be condoned.
Knowles, however, argued that journalists need to stick up for each other, especially as attacks on reporters become increasingly common.
"Major reporters from major outlets in the United States called him a crybaby, called him a snowflake because he was complaining about having a brain hemorrhage, being sent to the hospital with his injuries," Knowles said.
"There is nobody standing up for journalists such as Andy even in the journalism profession itself," he continued.
