Lots of twitter were ok with this today. The US has serious problems.
You could condense that down further to "people beat up other people" Sure if you leave out some context, why not leave it all out.

Where you choose to include and ignore context is very telling.

I included the context because on as I have written it it sounds like a hate crime.

Neither are criticized in left-wing media.
More than good PR, they come from the establishment class.

Social outcasts banded together. Just look at them. Have you ever seen such a bunch of losers in your life?

Antifa have terrible PR. They are constantly, and often rightly, vilified by the media.

The governement want to keep any anti immigration voices away from the mainstream as they know they may gain traction like in many other European countries. Yet according to some the only protests that attract thugs are the yellow vests.
Yeah about 25 of them against maybe 6 people. When the numbers are even they want no part of any fight. Because they get the **** kicked out of them every time.

He was Asian American and working class background.

That was the key driver for the attack.

There is a bad attitude growing in the American radical left to Asians. His being working class would have compounded it.

He has written for Quillette, the Wall St Journal etc so your attempt to minimize it as some edgelord getting hopped is not going to work.

I found his grift page.

He is the definition of an Edgelord and not a journalist. He is also quite glaringly an imbecile.

Ha, so twisted and wrong. The guy is an alt-right conservative writer with a penchant for associating with the far right chauvinists like the Proud Boys\Patriot Prayer, he ain't no ordinary journo and wasn't attacked for being working class/Asian. Looks like the guy went there in the middle of the anti-far right demonstrators to provoke them in order to claim the victimhood crown, well that worked for him.

Yeah it worked well the brain dead Antifa fell for it. And showed themselves again to be cowards that only want to fight when they have a numbers advantage.

Isn't he the guy who doxxed a woman who had her neck broken by one of his patriot prayer colleagues? Who also makes lists of journalists he claims are pro-antifa which are very popular among neo-nazi groups like Atomwaffen?
The doxxing tweet is still on his timeline fyi, he even shows the footage of her getting attacked, but for some weird reason the actual moment she is hit is blurred out - it's almost like they don't want anyone to see exactly what happened at that point.

(according to witnesses the injury was caused by being hit with a metal baton on the back of her neck when she was turned away from the attacker)

It was at this far-right attack on a local business:

I'm not here to claim antifa alway behave perfectly and are incapable of being violent, but Andy Ngo is an active participant in these violent situations, not an innocent bystander as he claims.

Sam Harris has described the milkshake thing as a mock assignation, it shows the person who you are confronting how close you can get to them. This is a dangerous, dark development. It may be only a milkshake but what’s next, rocks? Likewise this attack is a disgrace.

When people have such hatred for a political opponent that they will resort to violence its very dangerous.

I don’t care what the other persons opinions are, you do not have the right to attack them. They are going to alienate centre left people with their behavior and its really helping nobody.
