Today’s blacklisted American: Journalist Andy Ngo

They’re coming for you next: Journalist Andy Ngo has spent the last two years being pretty much one of the few real journalists covering the violent, fascist, storm-trooper tactics of the leftist Antifa and Black Lives Matter movements, carefully documenting in both print and visuals their riots and attacks of innocent citizens.

His reporting has been so effective that Antifa thugs attacked him in 2019, sending him to the emergency room in Portland.

Furthermore, those same Portland brownshirts stormed a local bookstore, causing its evacuation and early closure, because it happened to be selling Ngo’s book on Antifa activities in Portland, Unmasked. The protests eventually forced the bookstore to remove the book from its shelves, though it still sells it online.

Nor has that been the sum total of Antifa’s effort to blacklist Ngo. They have been issuing him death threats, and even though Ngo told the Portland police, even naming some names, the police did nothing.

Ngo was thus forced to flee Portland temporarily, moving to London. The irony is that his parents were refugees who came to the United States to gain freedom and the right to speak freely. Now their son has fled the U.S. for the same reasons.

When asked how he would describe Antifa in one sentence, he said, “For their world to live and thrive, America has to die.”

The worst part of these attacks has been the shallow willingness of the mainstream media to go along with the false slanders and lies against Ngo and to spread them.

National publications, such as Rolling Stone and Salon used a local alternative weekly “blog,” as Ngo puts it, to smear him using epithets with which we’re only all too familiar: racist extremist. “And then so whenever you google me now and [view] my Wikipedia page, all you see are these false accusations,” he explained. “All of this has been an attempt to get me canceled; to make me out to be someone I’m not, make me out to be a far-right extremist.”

It is all part of Obama’s legacy of hate, where slanders and libels by the left are now their first go-to argument in any debate.

Ngo deserves great kudos and support, however. Unlike many who fold to this fascist pressure, he has stood strong, and continued his reporting, honestly and in detail. Furthermore, the attacks have actually helped sales of Unmasked, making it a major bestseller. For a short while was number one on Amazon, and is still #37 as of today.

His fearless willingness to fight is of course the right response. Buying his book is another. We must not bow to these bullies and tyrants. We must look them in the eye and defy them. Only then will we ever have the chance to once again become free.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    “How Antifa Normalized Political Violence”

  • milt

    As of today, Fox has canceled ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight.’

    This was probably inevitable, but I was surprised that it happened so quickly. Tucker Carlson is also “off” for a week.

    How much longer before Behind the Black and every other conservative site goes dark?

    Meanwhile, President Biden has determined — totally without any sense of self awareness or irony — that former president Trump is too “erratic” to be given any national security briefings, as he might “slip” and divulge something that is classified.

    You can’t make up this kind of stuff.

    You can’t make up this kind of stuff.

    Sure wish we could.

  • eddie willers

    I was just listening to the John Batchelor Show (of course) and the discussion was how the Inquisition has now landed here with the Blue purging the Red before the Trump Show Trail begins. in the Senate.

    Now these weren’t crazy loons discussing a conspiracy theory, but John Batchelor and Michael Vlahos from Johns Hopkins. When the scholars are seeing the conspiracy, it’s become real.

  • Per eddie willers: “Sure wish we could.”


  • nbpundit

    If we want to be free in our speech and our movements, we have to stop allowing the abuses. The left is spinning out of control in their purges of anyone who dares to cross them. Start pushing back. Which means get loud, and do things as start boycotting on a major level.

    Do a search on Rumble for “Absolute Proof”. This is Mike Lindell’s two hour video where they go into a great deal of detail as to bh how the election was altered by state actors and others. It will take me some time to get through it, but I suspect that I will change my opinion on Lindell. I thought he was a joke, but I was wrong.

  • Cotour


    I watched the Mike Lindel video on the evidence that “HE” (Not the FBI or any elected official) has been able to gather:

    And the media and the political operatives who live in both fear and in the arrogance of what they were able to accomplish in the 2020 presidential election, the fraud that we now all live under. The Lindel video clearly has laid out what appears to be information from several credible sources, and it reveals the fraud and corruption and intimidation that has been executed by the Left and the Democrats and with the standing down of the RINO’s in the Republican party.

    Trump had to go, and so he is now gone. Gone but he is now growing in power and influence every day.

    And how do we know this fraud and corruption as being so? The Left is now bragging about what they were able to through intimidation and raw nerve working within the Democrat party and including the Left controlled Politically Correct / Social Justice Warriors in the Silicon Valley Social media tech companies.

    Here in this Molly Ball, Time Magazine article they tell you exactly how they conspired and colluded in a “Kabal” to install Biden in the presidency. Right in your face, Democracy and the polite appearance of Democracy even in America died on 11/3/20. America is in some in between nether world of political transition to full blown Socialism and oppressive control by one political party, OR we are on the edge of with the coming fraudulent Democrat un Constitutional trial of a private citizen next week of the raw truth being delivered to the American people. The question remains: Will they care and force what must be done be done?

    Right in your face America: We did it and this is how we did it, and what are you going to do about it? NOTHING!

    Amazon is out of stock as of this morning. Is it really? Or is Amazon not supplying in accordance from antifa orders?

  • Gary

    Vimeo and YouTube pulled ‘Absolute Proff’. They’re for Lindell.

  • Alton

    Amazon could be out of stock because both John Batchelor and Glenn Beck pushed the Ngo book before release date. Ngo’s book was also mention by a guest host on the Limbaugh Show.

    The scholar who coined the term “Church of Woke” … an apt description of the self-righteous fundamentalism of the Left, which may be closer to Tehran and the Taliban, than to Beijing.

    Andy Ngo’s Twitter is a page turner and also reports Antifa’s thuggery in Seattle. No other media covers it.
    The latest: BLM-Antifa are marching through Washington DC this weekend chanting “Burn it down!”

    One month since Trump’s insurrection/ siege / riot in the Capitol on January 6th.
    This compelling 21 minute video says it appears the insurrection was staged and preplanned. The narrator must be a movie director type and does a scene by scene break down of the Ashli Babbitt shooting. Everyone… the police… the medical personnel… looks like pudgy bearded Antifa types in bad costumes, and they don’t do the things police and paramedics do. No one assessed her injuries. No airway check. No CPR. Nothing. Some people in the crowd grab her by her limbs and lug her out. Note the experts pronounce her dead inside but when they wheel her outside on that dubious looking gurney she’s alive. Everything is a bit off. Warning for language. But the guy is funny.

    Everything Wrong With the Capitol Shooting In 21 Minutes Or Less

  • Dean Hurt

    I still remember when Andy was nearly killed for reporting on the ANTIFA fascist brownshirts in Portland. He is a true American warrior for the truth. ANITFA and BLM do not want to hear the truth or allow anyone else to hear the truth because the truth is not in them! I am amazed that fewer people are troubled by the outright totalitarian moves by The Dear Leader, Biden and the Democrat Party. I cannot believe that Americans will tolerate this much longer…I could be wrong as there seem to be more and more fools in this once great county.

    If you are an American who fits into one of these categories below, the Democrat leadership, the Leftist media and the extreme Leftists that have taken over that political party in their desperation for perpetual political power and agenda are in the process of designating half of the country as domestic terrorists. (Just like the Nazi’s that they say you are emulating)

    Do you disagree with much of what the Democrats are now in the process of forcing down Americans throats through the use of executive orders? Then you are on their list and in their opinion you need to be “reeducated”. Political power without any tolerance for their oppositions views or opinions and look to eliminate those views and opinions is the path to chaos and destruction resulting in a uni party Socialist, do as I say and keep your mouth shut society. And that is un and anti American.

    Now does that sound like Americans who are seeking unity? Sounds like you will comply to me.
    In time all will be revealed, but will it be too late?–~D
