Multiple event venues in Virginia have canceled on the organizers of a journalism conference after pressure and threats from a local Antifa group.
The Common Sense Society and The Virginia Council were to host the inaugural "Virginia Forum" Sept. 22 featuring journalist and author Andy Ngo, who has reported extensively on uncovering connections between Antifa and the riots in Portland, Oregon, and Richmond, Virginia.
The event was first slated to take place at Richmond's Commonwealth Club, an organization founded in 1890 that describes itself as a "vibrant city club with a diverse membership … including leaders in business, politics, education and society."
But when club officials learned of someone they say is a leader of Richmond, Virginia, Antifa doxxing the event on X, formerly Twitter, they canceled the event, citing "safety" concerns and "the current political climate."
"After careful consideration and in light of the current political climate, the leadership of the Commonwealth Club have made the difficult decision to decline hosting the event. This decision was not made lightly, but the safety and well-being of our guests and employees is our top priority, especially after recent social media posts by radical groups have targeted the event and the location," the club stated in an email to event organizers.
"We understand the importance of this event to your group and the effort that has gone into planning it. However, we believe that it is our responsibility to prioritize the safety of everyone involved."
The Common Sense Society (CSS) is a group that describes itself as exploring "ideas, cultures, and geography that have shaped our history in order to best contribute to a future that fosters human flourishing."

Where’s the Virginia governor and AG?
Jeez, I wish we could take some of Andy’s immense courage and transplant some of it into our conservative “leaders”. Andy, RESPECT!
Instead they are distributing copies of “Profiles in Courage”.
Ironically, the “antifascists” use the same intimidation tactics we saw in Hitler’s Germany
What? The police in these cities don’t have enough ammo to control the communists in ANTIFA?
Opposing AntiFa, the Dem’s street muscle, is why Meritless Garkand and the Do(in)J have gone after the Proud Boys so hard. Proud Boys were messing over some AntiFa.
We are going to have to learn to use OUR outdoor voice..................
One doesn’t cancel one hires armed security for the event. A win for Antifa.
In our ever escalating cultural civil war, it seems only one side is fighting.
The wrong side.
But when club officials learned of someone they say is a leader of Richmond, Virginia, Antifa doxxing the event on X, formerly Twitter, they canceled the event, citing “safety” concerns and “the current political climate.”
using the threat of violence (or actual violence) to affect a political outcome Is TERRORISM. yet Nadler says ANTIFA is just an idea.
No! The Commonwealth Club caved. The Common Sense Society was the event sponsor.
That's because they have most of the institutions. We only have a couple of red states. The SCOTUS. And nominal control of the House of the Representatives. We can talk a little bit over the internet as long as we don't make too much noise. For now.
They are dam(n) cowards. The only person fighting is Trump! And where is DeSantis in this fight? None of the Presidential Candidates are fighting the good fight against the odious corruption of the left. None.
Once again, I say buy weapons and ammo. These communists called antifa will not stop at cancelled events.
They are not conservative and they are not, as your quote show you know, leaders.
