Following the Antifa assault on Quillette journalist Andy Ngo in Portland and the terrorist attack on a Tacoma ICE facility, Wikipedia editors added these incidents to the Wikipedia page on Antifa, but left-wing editors removed them in just the latest case of Wikipedia editors protecting Antifa. Several editors, including an open Antifa supporter, subsequently made mocking comments about Ngo and one praised the attack on ICE.
Another violent incident reported in Newsweek last year was removed with some questioning Newsweek’s reliability. Wikipedia editors have also sought to remove mention of the FBI categorizing Antifa as engaged in terrorist activity. Some administrators, who hold more power on the site that editors, have intervened in the dispute to sanction Antifa critics.
Quillette editor and journalist Andy Ngo was attacked by Antifa activists in Portland, Oregon, at the end of June. The attackers sprayed Ngo with silly string, punched him repeatedly in the face, and threw a milkshake at him, the latter an increasingly popular form of assault being used by radical leftists against those they perceive as “far-right” figures. Ngo was subsequently hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage resulting from the assault. He was one of several attacked that day by members of the far-left movement, who were targeting a protest by the Proud Boys.
Wikipedia editor “Wumbolo” sought to update the Wikipedia article on Antifa to mention the assault. He then fought with other editors over a specific claim from Portland police that the milkshakes Antifa were throwing at people contained quick-drying cement, which could cause corrosive damage to the skin. All mention of the Ngo assault was subsequently removed by editor “Carptrash,” whose profile page includes multiple images of himself in an anarchist shirt, one time while brandishing a blunt instrument.'
