Enough is enough. The U.S. Justice Department needs to immediately open a criminal civil rights investigation of Antifa, an affiliation of radical activists and left-wing groups whose name, ironically enough, is short for anti-fascists.
Its attack on journalist Andy Ngo was beyond the pale. Federal law enforcement has an obligation to stop any extremist organization that is apparently organizing and precipitating violent attacks, especially if state and local authorities seem reluctant to take action against what has all the makings of a domestic terrorist organization.
We cannot have any confidence that the political leadership of the city of Portland will allow its local law enforcement to do anything about this, either.
The Portland Police Association released a statement after the attack criticizing the mayor for restricting the ability of the police to stop Antifa, saying, Our hands are tied.
The association also says it has no doubt that no such restrictions would not have been in place if this violence had been directed at Antifa.
Mayor Ted Wheeler claims that he had not directed Police Chief Danielle Outlaw or other officials to change their approach to arrests, in addition to defend[ing] the citys response, or lack thereof, to members of Antifa who [have] blocked traffic and harassed bystanders in the past.
But even the U.S. ambassador to Germany criticized the citys executive in a series of tweets, questioning what more needs to happen to Wheelers citizens before protective action will be taken. Wheelers inaction is even less defensible because the mayor of Portland is also its police commissioner.
Ngo was punched, pushed, robbed, and hit with tossed milkshakes purportedly mixed with quick-drying cement.

My question is, how do they support themselves, as they obviously aren't working any regular job.
Student loans, the disability gravy train, other welfare, the parents?

Think of Alabama and Mississippi when the KKK was attacking people in the 60s. Law enforcement refused to protect clearly targeted people.
The Federal government started civil rights prosecutions.
How is Portland ANY different? The local mayor and police refuse to impede the modern KKK and stand quietly to the side, doing nothing.
It’s Selma and Montgomery, west coast.
‘Antifa’ is paid LARPing deployed for tripwire purposes only...
Align yourself or your organization with the Democrat Party, and the law doesn’t apply to you. You can get away with anything.
Also billionaire money. Soros, Steyer, the Pritzkers, the Tides Foundation, and many others.
Not you, the writer. :)
Fastest route to resolving the Antifa problem starts with the heaviest possible criminal charges against the Mayor.
Antifa couldn’t do what they do without the knowing and willful cooperation of local authorities. Note that they only act where the government will allow them to break the law with impunity.
Antifa is stupid. Local cops should take care of these neredowellian yards.
But they don’t, because Antifa only acts where they know the local cops will be ordered to stand down.
Which is why there is really no separating Antifa proper from the mayors of Portland and Charlottesville and elsewhere where they are permitted to operate.
The FBI is busy using informants to commit crimes. So one would expect quite a few FBI informants wear black masks. Which means they will never clamp down on AntiFa. Not when they control it through informants.
How can you allow these thugs to go around with masks and weapons?
Dont think it’s a fed problem unless its funded by outside agitators who want to see the destruction of the USA. Pretty much a local problem. When was the last time you saw a antifa wanker in real life?
It’s been considered a federal problem since the civil rights laws that should be enforced here were written... to stop the KKK.
Hell, for all we know, the FBI may itself be running Antifa directly. It ain’t like it’s out of character for the bureau.
I recently saw them referred to as “Klantifa”.
