On Friday, I wrote about how House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stated on the House floor that Republicans were “dealing with imaginary things like Antifa” in trying to craft amendments to the Democrat-led House’s police reform bill. Here’s the video of Nadler making the comments, for those who missed it:

In response, House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan (R-OH) went off on Nadler for gaslighting Americans on the floor of the U.S. House, stating that “They’re real. And if you don’t believe me, go talk to Andy Ngo, the journalist in Portland who was attacked by Antifa.”

Jordan went on to say that it was “scary” to think Nadler would make such a statement considering all the video evidence that exists as to their violent activities in Democrat-run cities like Portland, Oregon and Washington, D.C.

As a result of Nadler’s comments, Jordan proceeded to invite Ngo to speak during today’s House Oversight briefing on “government violence against peaceful protesters and the journalists covering them.”

Ngo did indeed speak during the virtual hearing this morning, and laid out some inconvenient facts for the Democrats on the committee regarding how he had been personally threatened over the years by Antifa, how they physically assaulted him a year ago in Portland during a riot, and how they had also threatened his family by showing up at their home Halloween night.

He then laid out and included receipts on other documented instances of violent Antifa threats and attacks from all over the country, and noted that he agreed with President Trump’s designation of Antifa as a terrorist organization.

Watch:

Interestingly enough, the Democrats who led today’s hearing on assaults on journalists couldn’t be bothered to include Ngo’s name on the media notice about today’s briefing, though the names of other journalists who would be appearing on the panel were listed:

I guess it really is true that only certain lives matter to Democrats after all.
