EXCLUSIVE: He might be the most hated man in the room depending on where he goes, but Andy Ngô has undoubtedly amassed a tremendous following for his experience covering the ins and outs of Antifa.
The born-and-raised Portlander and second-generation Vietnamese American, a conservative journalist who serves as the editor-at-large of The Post Millenial, is now a New York Times bestselling author thanks to his recently published tome, "Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy."
In "Unmasked," Ngô explores not only the history of Antifa both in and outside the United States, but also his own experiences covering what he describes as an organized community of radical, left-wing anarchists.
Opponents tried to stop the book from being published, Ngô, 33, wrote on Twitter. Even when it was released, some took issue with the book being sold in stores, according to reports. Portland's famed shop Powell's Books opted not to sell the work after union employees protested Ngô "and everything he represents," reports stated.
Over the course of years, Ngô has endured physical attacks from people in crowds while covering Antifa or radical events, and even unwanted visitors at his and his parents’ homes, Ngô wrote in his book.
But everything came to a head earlier this year when Ngô left the country amid threats of violence and "an escalation of safety concerns," he told Fox News.
"It was just not safe anymore for me. I had already been on borrowed time," he said when reached by phone.
