In response to mounting threats on his life from Antifa agitators, Andy Ngo, independent journalist and editor of the Post Millennial, has fled Portland for London.
During an appearance on Sky News Sunday, Ngo said that he no longer felt safe in a city where authorities refuse to protect him.
“For a number of months now, there have been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo explained, going on to point out that he had reported all of the threats to authorities.
“Even when I provided names of some of the suspects, nothing was done,” he said.
Ngo added that it pained him to leave the country, especially since his parents had come to America as political refugees. Ngo’s parents were among the Vietnamese “boat people” who fled political persecution in Communist Vietnam.
After the Vietnam War, people from South Vietnam were sent to reeducation camps where they endured life threatening and torturous conditions.
Between 1975 and 1995, nearly 800,000 boat people made it safely to other shores. An estimated 200,000 to 600,000 died from pirate attacks, rape, torture, prosecution, drowning and starvation, according the Vietnamese Boat People website.
“You’ve turned into a political refugee yourself having to flee your home to go to London,” noted Sky News host Rita Panahi.

Ngo was hospitalized with a serious head injury in June of 2019 after a mob of antifa thugs punched and kicked him in the head, as well as assaulted him with pepper spray and cement milkshakes.
Police officers, hamstrung by the Mayor’s office, reportedly stood back and did nothing to stop the attack. Ngo later told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the assault happened just “a stone’s throw away from Portland’s most important institutions of the rule of law.”
The journalist in June of 2020 sued Rose City Antifa, a Portland-based antifa cell, and several specific individuals seeking $900,000 in damages for the 2019 assault.
A Multnomah County circuit judge on Dec. 15 denied a special motion to strike down the suit, allowing Ngo’s legal battle to move forward.
Ngo told American Greatness that he doesn’t know how long he’ll be staying in Great Britain.
