(Human Events) A journalist who covers AntiFa in the Pacific Northwest has become the victim of an alleged violent assault by leftist militants.
Scenes of the attack on reporter Andy Ngo were captured on video livestreams broadcasting demonstrations in downtown Portland, Oregon on Saturday.
Members of Rose City Antifa, numbering in the hundreds, organized as a counterprotest to a few dozen right-wing protesters from the Proud Boys and other rightist organizations, who announced their decision to demonstrate in three sites across the city. Police responded to the demonstrations by cordoning off various intersections and preventing the groups from clashing.

Caught in the crossfire was Ngo, an editor for Quillette and a contributor to the Wall Street Journal. He covered the unfolding protest by following a group of anarchist activists, some of whom he identified as “militant AntiFa” in his Periscope livestream.
