(Gateway Pundit) – On Saturday afternoon Quillette gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo was beaten and robbed by several Antifa attackers at a Portland protest march.
Ngo was later hospitalized Saturday night with a brain bleed following the brutal Antifa attack as he covered dueling left-right demonstrations in Portland, Oregon, Ngo’s attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon said.
Harmeet Dhillon later accused Mayor Ted Wheeler (top left) of calling on police to stand down.
Criminal gang at work, brought to you by the total capitulation of @tedwheeler and his police force told to stand down. https://t.co/M2c3CE0qab

On Monday Mayor Wheeler tweeted Senator Ted Cruz and claimed he never gave a stand down order.
At least get your facts straight. I ordered no such thing.
Could you divert some of those investigation dollars to something that would actually benefit American cities? Infrastructure, affordable housing, mental health services come to mind. https://t.co/btI14p8fkJ

But that isn’t what the Portland Police are saying.
In a statement Monday Portland Police Association President Daryl Turner told local KATU the mayor is preventing police officers from acting.
Mayor Wheeler was also accused of giving police a stand down order when Antifa terrorists were attacking the Portland ICE facility.
