Left-wing radicalism and violence is nothing new. Just as Democrats in the KKK that thought they were justified in lynching black men who supported those awful Republicans or liberal terrorists in the sixties felt justified in murdering or bombing people they disagreed with, there are liberals today that feel justified in using violence against their political adversaries. Whether you’re talking about the KKK, the Black Panthers, the Weathermen, or Antifa, terrorism and political violence have always gone hand-in-hand with the Democratic Party.

His camera equipment was stolen and he noted he was hit in the head multiple times with fists and weapons. He was also showered with milkshakes, which may be particularly significant since the Portland Police later said that some of the milkshakes appeared to have had quick-drying cement in them. Andy Ngo ended up with a brain hemorrhage and an older man named John Blum had his head gruesomely split open with a crowbar at the same rally.
