The Post Millennial's editor-at-large Andy Ngo joined Martha MacCallum Fox for her show "The Story" on Thursday night to discuss the events unfolding in Seattle this week.
Ngo, who has been tracking Antifa violence for years, said that "It's hard for me to overstate the anarchy that's on the streets in a neighborhood in the largest city in the Pacific northwest.
"You have here a group of several hundred people who have laid siege to a territory and have claimed it as a separate political entity from the United States. And aside from images of them dancing and having a good time, they also have people going around who are armed and acting as security, and border checkpoints.
"So to go through, you have to go through physical barriers that have been set up and it's complete anarchy because the police precinct that was there has been boarded up, the police have abandoned it.
"If you happen to live in that area, if you happen to run a business in that area, you are on your own. And according to what Seattle police said at a press conference they made aware that some businesses are possibly being extorted for money."
Inside the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, defacto leaders and enforcers have emerged in the absence of democratically elected law and order.
Ngo noted that local leaders in Seattle have expressed their support for this Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, and that Seattle police are staying away from the area because of this.
"And, even those within the camp," Ngo said, "the extremists, say that they have no leaders—[but] in the absence of power, there will be those who will take advantage of the situation to elevate themselves."
In reference to Raz Simone, who may be emerging as a leader of this group, Ngo said, "And I think potentially that's what we are seeing with this one individual, and others as well."
Fox aired a segment of The Post Millennial's exclusive interview with Raz Simone from the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, during which he called for more "positive outcomes."
Ngo's efforts to expose Antifa and the violent undertones of the recent wave of American leftist protest has not been without risk. It was only a year ago that he was assaulted by Antifa, and since then he has brought suit against one of the known groups.
