The New York Times journalist Sarah Jeong took to Twitter on Friday to call for fellow journalist Andy Ngo to be censored by the platform.
Sarah Jeong originally joined The New York Times to serve on their editorial board, immediately sparking controversy due to her history of racist tweets against white people. She has since moved on to the outlet's opinion section.
Jeong, arguing for Ngo to be banned, cited another journalist name Donovan Farley. Farley claimed without evidence that Ngo targets journalists and Antifa rioters for harassment, "willfully deceives his followers," and is "the type of propagandist responsible for [Wednesday's] insurrection."
Ngo, the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, publishes information exposing Antifa rioters and activists who have been arrested or committed violence, with particular focus on the northwestern states of Washington and Oregon.
Farley falsely claimed that Ngo was "acknowledging his misdeeds and guilt" by creating a mailing list for followers, insisting that such a mailing list is evidence that he publishes misinformation, and that the mailing list exists as a "contingency plan" for if and when Twitter censors him.
Farley also claimed, again without evidence, that Ngo "influenced and informed the seismic difference between the way law enforcement reacts to BLM protesters vs. the far-right groups."
In approving Farley's message, Jeong was joined by notorious Antifa activist Christian Exoo, who goes by the screen name AntiFash Gordon on Twitter, accusing Andy Ngo of "disinformation and incitement to fascist violence."
Exoo has a history of targeting journalists for harassment which has led to violence. In 2020, a former journalist at New York Daily News filed a lawsuit against Exoo after he coordinated a mass online and telephone campaign to get him fired from his position with the newspaper. The journalist ended up having his tires slashed and car keyed as a result of Exoo's harassment campaign.
The calls to censor come as Twitter begins a mass censorship campaign against conservative and far-right accounts, a purge which began with President Donald Trump.
