Left wing politicians and their MSM lapdogs are doing their best to ignore the Antifa domestic terrorists’ assault of Andy Ngo, a conservative, gay journalist, despite touting rainbows all over social media during a gay pride weekend. Cracks are showing, however, after CNN’s Jake Tapper commented on it, tweeting: “Antifa regularly attacks journalists; it’s reprehensible.” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), in turn, called for the Justice Department to investigate and bring legal action against Portland’s mayor after he ordered city police officers to stand down and do nothing during the Antifa melee.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Sen. Ted Cruz called for the Justice Department to investigate the mayor of Portland after a conservative journalist was attacked by Antifa members.
“To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists,” the Texas Republican tweeted Sunday.

“Those who facilitated or turned a blind eye to domestic terrorists—e.g., the Mayor—should be held fully accountable. By DOJ. By civil litigators. By criminal prosecutors. AND by the media,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
