Quote of the day—Andy Ngo @MrAndyNgo

But now I recognize, you know, they nearly killed me on the 29th. And I can’t be so naïve as to think that the police will actually be protecting citizens, law abiding citizens, anymore.

The provocation to them can be just existing with the wrong ideas. You saw how they, I mean, it’s still surreal to me to see the mainstream response to the Covington boys. Like this visceral hatred for somebody because of the look on their face or the hat they were wearing.

Antifa Attack, What Is Happening In Portland? | Andy Ngo | Rubin Report

[H/T to William Taylor.

At an hour and 15 minutes it is a bit long but I found myself drawn more and more into it. The first paragraph of the quote above is at about 59:34 in the video. The second paragraph is from about 1:09:15.

As I listened to the first part of the quote above I immediately thought, “He still has a lot of naivety. The police have never been required to protect people. He needs to read Dial 911 and Die.”

 

The second paragraph above hit me the hardest with the word surreal. I’ve read a lot of books about the Holocaust, the mass murders of the the USSR, and the genocides of Rwanda, Uganda, Ottoman Turkey, and many others. And three books on what Japan did in Nanking in 1937 and 1938.

Surreal is how many of the people who lived through those horrific events described it as things became more and more deadly. Those people didn’t think it could happen there. But in hindsight they discovered the signs were all there. With refuge parents from South Vietnam Ngo is far less naïve than most but still he has difficulty believing the facts.

It is easy to extrapolate from our present day situation into a horrible nightmare. Don’t let a normalcy bias pull you in too far. Look at the facts and judge them rationally.—Joe]

  1. Wait till Mr. Ngo finds out what happens to people who defend themselves against the people that attacked him. Go ask Mike Strickland. talk about surreal. wonder if he will report that Antifa is a government approved operation?
    He’s lucky he didn’t get the full “clue bat”. Welcome to the party Andy!

  2. Antifa was a violent organization as part of its inception as opposition to Mussolini.

    The bolsheviks were violent agitators too.

    The SA operated in the same manner as antifa.

    The weather underground and othe left wing marxists groups were violent in the 60s and 70s with bombings, etc

    But hey, there isn’t a pattern here, is there?

    • The Antifa act just like Mussolini’s Blackshirts, except they haven’t discovered the wonders of tying their political enemies to trees and lamp posts and forcing a near fatal dose of castor oil down their throats.
      The violence of the Blackshirts escalated until Giacomo Matteoti was assassinated on June 10, 1924.
      I don’t know if we will be able to dodge this evil this time around.

  3. It would be easy, almost trivial, to stop the mobs if the resolve were there. Just enforce the laws. But we’ve gotten to the point where mayors, police chiefs, lawyers, judges and even governors and feds are either self-serving cowards or they’re complicit, authoritarian agitator/revolutionaries themselves. Things can go from bad to worse, and very quickly, when public officials are this corrupt.

    • Miguel of the Gun Free Zone blog also made note of the fact that there have been no violent antifa antics in Florida, which has anti-mask-laws with some rather stiff penalties.

  4. Yes it’s a bit long but the format allowed answers to be fully developed. And I was pleasantly pleased that Rubin didn’t interrupt or try to rush him. The information about Antifa in the video is worth the time investment. I also was surprised that he didn’t know that the police have no requirement to protect you. He’s not unusual though unfortunately. I wish more people would wake up to this.

    And thanks for the H/T.
