Video: Quillette Editor Andy Ngo Violently Attacked And Robbed By Antifa In Portland — As Police Watch And Do Nothing

(Gateway Pundit) – Quillette editor Andy Ngo was violently attacked and robbed by Antifa on Saturday while attempting to cover a protest in Portland.

Ngo’s face was covered in wounds as he did a livestream explaining what had happened.

Ngo says he was assaulted by the protesters multiple times without any help from police. They also stole his camera equipment.

“Attacked by antifa. Bleeding. They stole my camera equipment. No police until after. waiting for ambulance . If you have evidence Of attack please help,” Ngo tweeted.

The journalist reported that the suspects are still at large and that he is en route to the hospital.

The event he was covering was promoted as “Community Self-Defense Against Proud Boy Attack,” by Rose City Antifa. Ngo had tweeted prior to the event that he was nervous about covering it.

“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally. They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence,” Ngo wrote on the eve of the event.

Rose City Antifa claimed on their website that Ngo had been “participating” in protests that he had simply attended to cover and called for violence against him.

Portland Police: Milkshakes Thrown (by Antifa) Reportedly Made With Quick-Drying Cement

Portland, Oregon police posted a warning to Twitter Saturday evening that “milkshakes” thrown during the violent Antifa protests contained quick-drying cement. Police officers, Quillette journalist Andy Ngo and others were hit with milkshakes. Commenters online noted the high alkaline content of the moistened quick-drying cement would cause chemical burns when it hit exposed skin.

“PPB advising crowd to get out of street and onto sidewalks. Police have been hit with eggs and milkshakes.”

“Police have received information that some of the milkshakes thrown today during the demonstration contained quick-drying cement. We are encouraging anyone hit with a substance today to report it to police.”

Video posted by Oregonian reporter Jim Ryan shows Antifa distributing milkshakes.

Ryan filmed the vicious attack on Andy Ngo by Antifa thugs.

The National Capital Poison Control Center says of concrete:

…Cement can cause caustic injury, resulting in chemical burns of any part of the body it comes in contact with – skin and eyes, mouth and throat if swallowed, and lungs if cement powder is inhaled. Cement is largely made up of calcium oxide. When it reacts with water, it produces highly alkaline (high pH) calcium hydroxide that can reach a pH of 12 or higher within a couple of minutes. This is why dry cement is less caustic than wet cement. Remember that the pH tells us how acidic or alkaline a solution is on a scale of 0 (most acidic) to 14 (most alkaline), with a neutral pH being about 7. So, because the pH of wet cement is so high, it can cause burns.

Some of the worst outcomes occur when cement gets into or seeps through boots, gloves, or clothing. By the time the person is aware of this, significant burns to the skin could have already occurred. The longer the cement stays on the skin, the more damaging the burn can be. Even after washing the cement off, the alkaline burn usually gets worse before it gets better. In severe cases of cement burn of the skin, the burn can extend deeper into tissues beneath the skin to damage muscle and even bone.

Other skin problems can also occur from cement. It’s gritty and contains chemicals that can cause dermatitis characterized by redness, swelling, and itching.

Swallowing cement can cause burns of the lips, mouth, throat, and stomach. Initial signs can include drooling, difficulty swallowing, or vomiting. In some cases, cement can harden in the gastrointestinal tract and cause obstruction. Inhaling cement dust can cause coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing…

Fellow Quillette write Barrett Wilson posted an update on Ngo.

“UPDATE: @MrAndyNgo has suffered multiple injuries to his face and neck and has a torn earlobe. The milkshakes apparently contained quick-drying cement. He’s in the hospital w/ a friend. Journalist @michellemalkin set up a GoFundMe. Suspects still at large.”

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell condemned the attack on Ngo.
