The Real Fascists

From The Spectator:
The reason Andy was targeted is because the outlets he writes for, including Quillette where we both work as editors, frequently challenge hard-left dogma. Andy is best known for the investigative work he has done exposing hate crimes hoaxes, such as the Jussie Smollett incident, but he’s also filmed criminal acts by Antifa activists in Portland, including violent assaults, and posted them on Twitter, thereby earning the group’s lifelong enmity. He and his family have been doxxed numerous times, with activists publicizing his home address on social media.

In the attack, Andy received cuts and bruises to his face and head, including a torn earlobe, and had thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment smashed or stolen. He was taken to the local hospital, where it was discovered he had a small bleed to his brain and, as a result, he was kept in overnight. His friend Michelle Malkin has set up a Gofundme page where well-wishers can make donations to pay for additional security, his medical needs and to replace his camera equipment. (Read more.)

From Byron York at The Washington Examiner:
The toxicity of the resistance to President Trump has risen in recent days, with the nation's most respected newspapers publishing rationalizations for denying Trump supporters public accommodation and for doxxing career federal employees, while a journalist found himself under physical attack from the so-called anti-fascist group Antifa, which has stepped up its violent activities since Trump's election.

The justification for denying public accommodation came from the Washington Post in an op-ed by Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of a farm-to-table restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. Wilkinson became famous in June of last year, when she refused to serve White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and and told Sanders and her family to leave the restaurant. Wilkinson's staff then followed the Sanders group in protest as they tried to find another place to eat. Wilkinson later told the press she ejected Sanders because the Trump administration is "inhumane and unethical" and because the Red Hen "has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation."

From David J. Harris:
Senator Ted Cruz has called on federal law enforcement to investigate and prosecute Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for ordering the police to stand down and allow Antifa fascists to attack journalist Andy Ngo, sending him to the hospital after blood was found leaking from his brain.  Wheeler must have ordered the police to stand down even though Antifa announced their intention to target Ngo, who is a gay Asian…hardly what you would call a fascist. Wheeler has a long history of ordering the police to stand down and allowing Antifa to attack people. It’s time to lock him up, perhaps. (Read more.)

From The American Thinker:
The Washington Post is all-in on stoking the fire of public harassment of Trump supporters, denying them public accommodations. So much for civility and mutual respect. That’s the only conclusion to draw from this op-ed (non-paywall version here) published by the largest newspaper in our nation’s capital, written by Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen Restaurant that kicked out Sarah Sanders and her family while dining there. The paper proudly tweeted out its contribution to the loss of civility. (Read more.)

Now who is acting like the Nazi's? Trump is accused of being a Nazi and housing children in concentration camps like Hitler, but the behavior pointed out in this article smells like Nazi to me.
