U.S. ambassador Grenell calls on Justice Department to probe violent Antifa attack on indy journalist in Portland: This is domestic terrorism

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) Thugs and cowards who assemble and attack others under the banner of ‘Antifa’ struck again in the Marxist enclave of Portland, Ore., on Saturday, attacking independent journalist Andy Ngo and drawing the ire of a U.S. ambassador.

Richard Grenell, currently serving the Trump administration as ambassador to Germany, expressed outrage at the attack against the Quillette writer and is calling on the Justice Department to investigate the incident, possibly as an act of domestic terrorism — and especially after reports that, as usual, Portland Police stood down and did nothing to intervene.

Online reports noted that Ngo suffered bleeding on the brain following the attack and was hospitalized.

Following the attack Michelle Malkin set up a GoFund me account for Ngo, who was also robbed.

Grenell noted on Twitter that the attack has to be investigated on a federal level.

I have asked “@TheJusticeDept to investigate this incident in Portland. I can’t just sit by and watch my friend be brutally attacked,” he wrote.

Police in Portland, as well as the city’s Leftist mayor, Ted Wheeler, have a history of allowing Antifa to roam and rule the streets, ganging up on anyone they choose to victimize, as noted by J. D. Heyes at NewsTarget in August 2018:

The Left-wing hate and intolerance of POTUS Donald Trump and his supporters were bad enough as it was, but now it’s gotten to the point where it is affecting reasonable judgement and putting people at risk.

In recent weeks an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Portland, Ore., which has become the West Coast epicenter of Trump Derangement Syndrome, came under siege by far-Left “Occupy ICE” demonstrators who set up a ramshackle tent city in an adjacent parking lot.

The protesters blocked ICE employees from entering the facility for more than 30 days before federal police, dispatched to open the facility, cleared demonstrators out and began securing the premises.

But a number of ICE employees have since reported being harassed and threatened with physical violence for which they called the Portland Police Bureau to lodge complaints. But cops never showed up to take their reports.

Why? Because the department was ordered to stand down by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who was quoted as saying by local media in June, “I do not want the Portland Police to be engaged or sucked into a conflict.”

“The policy being enacted by the federal government around the separation of very small children from their parents is an abomination,” Wheeler tweeted. “I want to be very clear I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track, that has not fully lived American values of inclusion and is also an agency where the former head suggested that people who lead cities that are sanctuary cities like this one should be arrested.”

As for the ordering of his department to stand down, a letter from attorney Sean Riddell to Wheeler accuses the mayor of violating the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause.

“Your current policy forbidding Portland law enforcement agencies from assisting employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency who request law enforcement assistance while at or away from work is a violation of the United States Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause,” the letter states, as The National Sentinel reported.

“We understand that you have a difference of opinion with the current President of the United States, and some of his policies, but we fail to see why targeting the employees of ICE and leaving them vulnerable to violence, harassment and even death furthers a legitimate government interest,” Riddell wrote, adding that refusing to allow local police to protect ICE employees “created a zone of terror and lawlessness.”

Normally, we are not supportive of federal involvement in local law enforcement matters. When Barack Obama’s Justice Department ‘intervened’ on the local level, it was to foist Left-wing social justice and race policies on police departments.

American Liberty: “Established 1776” Order yours now!

But this is different. Obama’s own DHS and FBI, at one time, designated Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization, and the federal government has a clear mandate to investigate and prosecute domestic terrorism.

According to reports, Ngo was also doused with quick-drying cement, which can cause flash chemical burns — making it a ‘chemical weapon,’ by any account. That only adds to the domestic terrorist label.

By definition, using violence to effect a certain political outcome is terrorism.

Amb. Grenell is right on this one; Portand PD and the city’s mayor aren’t going to do anything about these thugs and cowards.

  1. Justice Department! What Justice Department? I though it disbanded.

  2. Antifa=leftist faschists and are definitely terrorists

    • They ARE ‘Terrorists on Americans they are told to “Gather Around them- bully, attack and yell to make the opposition LEAVE, malls, restaurants or wherever they are by our Own Congress people like Maxine Waters, etc. This IS Terrorism that corrupt Dems DO PROMOTE, and IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED BY ALL MEANS POSSIBLE. Arrest and charge these “TERRORISTS, with HATE CRIMES, VIOLENCE AND ATTACKS AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS, AND PUT THEM IN GITMO, AS ENEMY COMBATENTS NOW!”

        Sanctioned and protected by Portland’s city government and their police department

    • Notice how true cowards always cover their faces and attack in mob strength?

      • marty lopez | June 30, 2021 at 9:26 pm |

        All I notice is the police sanction. In Portland the cops are the enemy

    These are the people who will operate the Concentration Camps where Conservatives, Christians and Patriots will be re-educated or exterminated.

    • Antfa are not left. They are globalists. The real “left” has never been in favor of immigration, much less mass 3rd world immigration. Take a look at the former Soviet Bloc. All of them are opposed to immigration. The AfD is most popular in East Germany.

  4. These are the people who will DIE FIRST when the S really hits the fan and the silent majority has HAD ENOUGH

    • The anarchist Antifa (who have their roots in communist Bavaria during Weimar) are really cowards at heart. Only when they can outnumber their desired victims are they faux ‘brave.’

      They will run when the balloon goes up. Unless they are getting photographed and databased, they will make themselves very hard to find. There is an underground railroad for terrorists in place throughout Portland (and the NW, generally) and they hope to make use of that when they run and hide.

    • Really? And when the phuck will that be, pray tell? Please do.

  5. And yet, Mayor Liar…oops Wheeler, didn’t seem to have a problem with child separation while Barack Obama was doing it. Hmmm. Mayor Hypocrite-Liar? (Hyphenated names are so upper crust!)

    It’s way past time for charges, prosecution, conviction, and jail for left wing violence and those who enable it or carry it out.

    Members of the fascist group antifa are protected by the Dept. of Just Us, just as is the Portland mayor.

    It would be very ironic, if the real DoJ would take up the investigation and give the left a little dose of their own medicine.

  7. Domestic terrorism? Really? This has been going on since at least 2015, and you just figured that out? Also, Portland police need to remember that there are more of us than there are of them, and when the SHTF, they will be legitimate targets, I am very pro-cop, but not pro-thug. Especially if those thugs wear badges.

    • About time someone with any sense commented. Portland police are enemies and they need to go down with the terrorists as they protect the terrorists and with a very decided political purpose.

      I really can’t see any difference between Portland’s police and the terrorists they allow to usurp our freedoms of speech and assembly and perpetrate violence upon law abiding citizens.

    Send a few of these Leftist Antifa bastards to west-central Texas. We’ll know what to do with them. … won’t need any cops.

  9. ANTIFA has been well funded in the US and very active since 2016 and have always been active in Germany since the 1930’s. This group is a Socialist group that is willing to lie to people about their intentions. They seek Anarchy then the rebuild of various countries as Socialist countries. They know they have to destabilize the Gov to achieve the change they want.Trump is their biggest Enemy and they know how to use young 20-30 year olds as tools for their cause.
    They are a GOLBAL terror group and someone needs to call them out and shine a light on them in order to expose their size and intentions. They are not just some edgy college kids, they are organized and well funded and some are armed with weapons and very willing to kill if necessary. We need to get rid of them and make this group illegal to exist and fine or imprison members.

    What Portland’s Mayor Ted Wheeler swore to. when he took office.

    I , (name), do solemnly (affirm or swear) I will support the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Oregon; Charter of the City of Portland and its laws; I will faithfully, honestly and ethically perform my duties as (Mayor/Commissioner/Auditor); I have no undisclosed financial interest in any business located in Portland or having contracts with the City; I hold no other office or position of profit; and I am not a member of any partisan political committee (; so help me God).

    He likes to claim he’s not an employee so it doesn’t apply but he does get paid.$146,666 annually making him a City Employee/officer.

    Not only does he violate Oregon Law but he violates Federal law when he fails to uphold the US Constitution. He should be arrested and prosecuted in a Federal court id the Oregon Court won’t do it.

    • So where the phuck is Trump’s Justice department? Trump took an oath too and so far he hasn’t sent the army to protect our borders, sanctuary cities, deport illegals. Look closely and he hasn’t done any of it and what might that tell you? Their oaths are a joke

    The PEOPLE are going to have to take up Arms since this “government” refuses to uphold the Rule of Law. And where is Trump? If his kid is spat on the SS is right there …… but Trump IGNORES his MAGA hat supporters gettingpounded.

    • If you want to save America, or what is left of it, your course of action is the only option. These billionaire, bullschit artists are only interested in America as a platform for business deals. Their America isn’t our America. Trump attacks the media and the stupid public is satisfied. What happens when the Trump blow hard is gone in 6 years? Whoa, no one bothers to ask that question. All these illegals are popping babies at tax payer expense. They aren’t leaving and Trump isn’t deporting, rounding up, or stopping them at the border either. We’re done. Stick a fork in America and the only thing that can change anything is mass violence and revolution. If 200 illegals were gunned down at the border, Trump would have the army down there tomorrow. And anyone who doesn’t see that much is just too stupid to count.

  12. The Proud Boys VS Antifa at Portland Or. Protest.


    Antifa found them, when the fight was over Antifa was wishing they had left them alone. ANTIFA had their hats handed to them.

  13. In a Portland Or. Protest ANTIFA was looking for Fight with the Proud Boys.
    See it on YouTube:

    After the Fight was over there was no doubt The Proud Boys had handed ANTIFA’s Hat to them. They were given a sever public beating.

  14. Attacking a journalist would be an attack on the First Amendment, which would be a violation of the civil rights of the journalist.
    If this was facilitated by the Portland city government, specifically the mayor, the journalist would certainly have recourse to suing the city to recover any real and potential injury, both to his person and to his financial potential.
    Andy Ngo needs to retain a lawyer to sue the city, and also if there is any Anti Fa organization which may have some culpability.
    It does appear he was quite seriously injured. Bleeding on the brain would indicate more than just minor injury, but potentially life long disability, possibly even assisted living.
    The city would likely be responsible for any life long disability, and if the city mayor actually withheld or restricted police forces in any way from controlling or preventing disturbance of the peace, or even physical violence against persons the administration of the city was not in agreement with politically, I could see that mayor and responsible leadership, such as a city council, actually being co-conspirators in roughing up people they disagreed with politically.
    That would essentially be giving a green light to terrorist activities.
    This situation has a lot of similarities to the Charleston, Virginia rioting, in which the city and or state govenment prevented police forces from restraining rioting, apparently wanting a violent situation with victims that could be exploited for political purposes.

  15. The hideous filthy immoral infantile ignorant deceived destructive totalitarian evil and wicked leftists are a plague on this country. So are the Rinos and libertariantards. Trump 2020! MAGA!

  16. And it takes an Abassador’s complaint for the Justice Department to notice? Really? How about putting Portland’s city government and police department in receivership? Whatever happened to the protection of civil rights, or is that just a political issue for race and Identity politics.

    And lastly, what the phuck is wrong with the Trump Administration? Why don’t they use the Justice department? Why don’t they use the army? Why don’t they use what it is they can use without the congress and the courts? Trump talks a big rally about America, but all he ever seems to do is trade deals. How about sanctuary cities, or open civil insurrection, or hasn’t anyone, but me noticed?

  17. This is a violation of the 1st Amendment and Freedom of the Press. This makes the Portland Police complicit in this domestic terrorism act. Thus, that means the City of Portland, The state of Oregon, The Police Department of Portland and Antifa are supporting of a terrorist action and organization.

    This qualifies the Federal Government to come in and take over the city, state and Police Department based on Federal Law. This can and should launch a massive investigation and a lawsuit for a major amount of money.

    Because of the organizations involved, they can move the cases to a Federal court out of the districts involved to make sure it’s fare, so that would mean a more conservative part of Oregon, one that would most likely prosecute the mayor of Portland too. This whole thing could bring down the liberal establishments in Oregon politics and it should because they have been getting away with way too much in the form of violations of the US Constitution.

  18. ANTIFA are terrorists. But…lucky for them they play for the same team as the FBI, or they’d be in big trouble.

    LOL! At the most.The Antifa thugs will get off on probation. Way to go LAPD and the mayor of Portland.

  20. Arrest George Soros, his Weathermen Communist co-conspirators—many of whom have infiltrated our nation’s educational, political, and financial systems and who successfully orchestrated putting Communist Barack Obama in the White House—and most of this leftist NWO violence will disappear. Divide and conquer is their motto. A favorite strategy is to accuse their opponents of the crimes they themselves commit. Their goal is to destroy the all-time greatest bastion of freedom on the planet—the United States of America—and then set up their worldwide dictatorship. They now control the media and have replaced fair and balanced news with yellow journalism, propaganda, and fake news. Beating up honest journalists is their Standard Operating Procedure.

  21. Wheeler should go down for this too. He uses Antifa as his second police force because everyone on his first police force is a coward just collecting a paycheck.

  22. Portland has become the armpit (I have a better word) of the Nation.

  23. AntiFa is a boil on the ass of humanity. Let’s lance it and drain it !
