GoFundMe For Journalist Beaten By Portland Antifa Hits 300% Of Goal In One Day

A GoFundMe campaign for a conservative journalist who was beaten and robbed by members of Portland's Antifa cell has raised nearly 300% of its $50,000 goal within 24 hours - currently standing at $150,020 as of this writing.  

Ngo, a journalist and editor at Quillette, was covering a Portland Antifa rally when he was beaten and soaked in liquids which police believe contained quick-drying cement. He was hospitalized after the attack, in which he claims that his GoPro camera was stolen. 

The GoFundMe was set up by conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin.

 

"There were reports of individuals throwing ‘milkshakes’ with a substance mixed in that was similar to a quick-drying cement. One subject was arrested for throwing a substance during the incident," according to the Portland police. 

That said, BuzzFeed's Joe Bernstein says he did not see any concrete being poured into the milkshakes - which doesn't discount them pouring it in right before the attack.
