Antifa 'Panicking' About Police Informant Who Infiltrated Network, Andy Ngo Reveals
Inflation lead to arson charges against group
Members of violent far-left group Antifa are reportedly worried about a police informant in their network, which led to arson charges, reporter Andy Ngo says.
Ngo said Saturday on NTD’s “The Nation Speaks:"
“They’re panicking because this may possibly mean that somebody has infiltrated high … and there’s a lot at risk because this is a criminal cartel."
“And if there’s somebody in there and they don’t know who it is who’s informing on them, it could bring down the entire cell,” Ngo added.
“I’m hopeful that that will happen, although I’m not sure if there’s the political will for the investigators to actually go through and fully investigate all the links and ties that this individual suspect has.
"But this is at least a little bit of good news in regards to months and months of really terrible things happening in Portland with no changes happening.”
Since 2020, Portland has been at the epicenter of rioting.
Some of the violence has been linked to Antifa.
Prosecutors last week announced 19-year-old Alma Raven-Guido would be charged with arson, criminal mischief, and rioting—all felonies.
Raven-Guido is accused of pouring flammable liquid that ignited the building housing the Portland Police Association, a police union, in April.
Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said the liquid “resulted in the fire growing."
Witnesses saw one of the bottles Raven-Guido use catch fire, telling police they saw her place the three bottles into a backpack.
A police officer described the witness as “the informant" in a court document.
Police officers also found accelerant and lighters folowing the arrest of Raven-Guido shortly after the fire was set.
The fire resulted in an estimated $25,000-plus damage to the police union building.
No one was inside the building when it was set on fire, Daryl Turner, executive director of the union, said.
Following the news of the alleged informant, Antifa members on social media “were trying accuse one another, saying, ‘who was it?'” Ngo said.
“And they’re really scared, so they’re locking down their social media accounts so that you can’t see what they’re saying anymore,” he added.
Screenshots shared by Ngo on Twitter show people wondering about who informed on Raven-Guido.
“Somebody sold us out. Somebody sold every single one of us out. There’s somebody out there that would rather send a 19-year-old indigenous person to prison than protect a single one of us. [expletive] you. Absolutely [expletive] you. I hope we find out who the [expletive] you are,” one wrote.
“So where did this happen, and what’s that snitches address?” another posted.
Another user shared a meme that stated, “snitches get stitches.”
Ngo said the anxiety among Antifa members would lead to a decrease in the violence in Portland.
“I think that the group of people who are organizing, carrying out the violence is relatively small,” he said.
"So they stand a lot to lose actually if there’s going to be a high level of distrust within the ranks and Portland Police and even federal authorities have not been effective at clamping down on the violence in Portland, which is still ongoing to this day.
“But hopefully, this—Antifa’s own paranoia—can be their undoing.
"One can hope.”
