Well, in unsurprising fashion, this New York Times article is a dumpster fire.
"Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, called for a federal investigation, declaring without evidence that officials in Oregon’s largest city were allowing the violence as a result of their own liberal sympathies."
"Mr. Ngo is an independent journalist in the Portland area who works with the online magazine Quillette, a publication which prides itself on taking on “dangerous” ideas"
"He [Ngo] has a history of battling with anti-fascist groups, with the two sides sharing a mutual antipathy that dates back many months."
"disclosed messages between a police bureau lieutenant and leaders of the far-right group Patriot Prayer, showing friendly exchanges and discussions about protests — messages which prompted many critics to accuse the department of having a built-in bias toward conservatives."
“This story, like many that have come before it, simply confirms what many in the community have already known — there are members of the Portland police force who work in collusion with right-wing extremists,” a city commissioner, Jo Ann Hardesty, said at the time."
"The police were prepared for the event on Saturday, with the goal of keeping the two sides separated, said Robert King, a senior adviser on public safety to Mayor Wheeler."
"Effie Baum, an activist with a Portland group called PopMob, said police officials were wrong — they were vegan milkshakes made not of cement, but of coconut ice cream, cashew milk and some sprinkles."
"Other images, of course, showed what looked like milkshakes being lobbed as missiles, but those, in Ms. Baum’s view, were aberrations."
Let's be very clear about this.

Antifa is NOT.

Antifa is an oxymoron.

Antifa = Fascism.
The intent of Antifa is to repress free speech.
Since there is some discussion on terms, allow for a slight elaboration.

Most notably, my point: "Antifa are what they accuse"
