Andy Ngo has more courage and integrity than most of the rest of his journalistic brethren combined. From Micah Curtis at RT News via lewrockwell.com:
Why are they so afraid of him?
What’s the problem with Andy Ngo? SoundCloud has banned his podcast and Joy Behar attacked him on national TV, and yet his only ‘crime’ has been his tireless work to expose the shameful violence of Antifa’s left-wing thugs.
One look at conservative journalist Andy Ngo, and you wonder why so many people find him so threatening. Yet, it seems that any time his name is mentioned, there are plenty who don’t want to hear his voice and try to downplay his significance. If that doesn’t work and he finds himself attacked by Antifa, the victim-blaming is so loud you can hear it across several continents.
There’s a quote from George RR Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ books that can be paraphrased along the lines of “you would only tear out a man’s tongue if you’re afraid of what he might say.” Joy Behar of The View recently seemed quite frustrated over the attention that Ngo’s book on Antifa, ‘Unmasked’, is getting. On top of that, his podcast has been banned from SoundCloud. According to Ngo, editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, he has not received a reason for the banning, aside from a blanket statement about ‘terms of service violations.’
So why is it that people fear what he is going to say? Why does he provoke such an emotional reaction, as seen in the online response to Mumford & Sons’ Winston Marshall tweeting praise for his book? If the things he is reporting on are not that big a deal, then shouldn’t he just fade into the background? I think it boils down to his willingness to specifically highlight the actions and agenda of Antifa, which many on the political left seem to want to ignore.
