Andy Ngo spoke at the Western Conservative Summit earlier this month about what can be learned from more than a year's worth of arrest data on riots in the US. Jeff Hunt asked Ngo if the images of arrestees show the "white supremacy Joe Biden has been talking about? They all seem to have one color there."
"So you noticed the demographic makeup," Ngo said of the sea of white faces in mug shots of those arrested at riots. "Portland has had a year now of riots, more than 1,000 arrestees, and you can actually get data off of that, off of those people who have been booked last year and this year."
"Unsurprisingly," Ngo said, "the majority of them are white. Most of them are young, in their 20s and early 30s." He showed graphic images of violence caused by Antifa, using them to "show that this 'idea' manifests itself in violence and sometimes deadly violence."
He spoke about the day he was assaulted in June 2019, noting that eight other people were injured that day by Antifa, some of them hospitalized. Ngo said he has been warning and reporting about this "terroristic organization" that was organizing openly on the streets of Portland, his home town.
"I was demonized and ignored," he told Hunt, "and we had 120 days of riots last year in Portland after George Floyd died. It was the longest of the riots in any city in America, and it became deadly."
The Denver Post reported that Ngo was the only speaker during the two day event who received a "sustained standing ovation at the beginning and end of his remarks." Ngo has worked diligently to report on the tactics of far-leftist militant group Antifa, which has staged and engaged in riots and demonstrations across the US as part of their aim to sow chaos.
Ngo told the audience that Antifa is a "terroristic organization that organizes openly” and has “ideological ties to communism." He said that RICO laws, which were enacted to deal with organized crime, should be used to target Antifa.
The Western Conservative Summit is an event held by think tank Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University. The Centennial Institute works on "mobilizing ideas on faith, family, and freedom to strengthen America's future."
