A victim of Antifa violence himself, Ngô discovered that the SPLC, along with local governments in some areas, spur on BLM and Antifa to attack conservatives because "for their world to live and thrive, America has to die."
This quote comes straight from the "anti-fascist" 10 points of belief, by the way, illustrating the paramilitary group's true intentions. There will be no peace until Antifa has destroyed every last pillar of society and replaced it with communism.
The SPLC's role in all this is to help Antifa choose its targets. Anyone who interferes is labeled a "fascist" and subsequently "canceled."
"That's the crazy Leftist triangulation playing out these days on the streets of Portland and in many other riot-prone American cities," writes Victoria Taft for PJ Media.
"Though I've watched the Portland protest scene go from the chill Friday-at-4 drum circles to shrieking animal rights protesters, Occupy encampments, May Day melees, and antifa trying to burn down my hometown, Ngo's book is a valuable resource and well told."
Entitled: Unmasked: Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, Ngô's book catalogs the history of Antifa dating back to the 1920s and 1930s when it was first getting started in Europe. The American version of Antifa started in Minneapolis in the 1980s as a Leftist skinhead group called the Baldies.
"... as Ngô discusses in Unmasked, antifa still is a paramilitary group," Taft explains. "They train both mind and body, and don't brook differing opinions. Whatever violence the group does, whether or not they started it – as they almost always do – it is considered 'self-defense.'"
Interestingly enough, the bookstore featured in the television series "Portlandia" is where many Antifa groups have met to train, according to Ngô. Various other bookstores and shell organizations serve as similar fronts across the country.
While Antifa does use some cloak-and-dagger tactics to pull off its stunts, many of them are done right out in the open. Other "comrades" often join them, providing support in the form of medical supplies and food. And of course the heads of Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter do their part to facilitate organizing and fundraising.
The mainstream media also participates by painting Antifa in a positive light and its victims in a negative light. The Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post rag actually published an exposé about Antifa clothing, using Antifa members as models to glamorize it in a spread.
"The media in Portland highlighted the local colorful characters at the riots and gave short shrift to the fact that they're helping to burn down the local cop shop or federal courthouse," Taft adds.
"Ngô says politicians pick up the media cues and embrace the violent thugs rather than be labeled a racist. They even gave an antifa group, SnackBloc, which supplies food to rioters, a $140,000 grant from federal COVID money thanks to the Oregon Health Department."
Antifa really went hyperdrive once Donald Trump became president because liberals found allies in their common hatred for the president. Suddenly every crazy conspiracy theory about Trump became true, justifying Antifa's violent behavior against his supporters and anyone perceived as possibly being his supporter.
"They really did believe it was ascendant American fascism and they needed to respond asap or else a holocaust was imminent," Taft reports about Antifa's attitude in the Trump era.
