I'd never heard of him until reading what you wrote above. When I went to his Twitter page from the link that started all of this I did not even take notice of his name. But after you did bring his name to my attention this is what I found.
Several media outlets, including The Oregonian and The Rolling Stone have been critical...
I’m not going to quote your whole paste because it doesn’t really say anything that I said in a few lines.
I’ll tell you about one of the selectively edited videos: During one of those MAGA protests, a bunch of BLM activists ganged up on a white dude, attacked him more than once and always from behind, and one guy took him out with what must have been an iron rod up his sleeve (also from behind).
Yes, the victim probably wouldn’t like me very much for being a Hebrew. And yes, the video was edited: Ngo left out the part where the white dude pushed another white dude with a megaphone yelling for him to get out of town. Pushed him.
This is what the left was angry about. Person after person angrily tweeting that Ngo had “doctored” or otherwise messed with the video. As if they were otherwise ok with these people attacking him* from behind, knocking him down with a deadly weapon, and — oh by the way stomping on him and stealing his phone after he was down and bloodied. I don’t know if the guy is even still alive.
But he did push megaphone guy to the ground. And Andy Ngo, although he did leave the source’s name of the original video intact, making it easy to find, did chop off that pushing scene.
*him = the white dude, not Ngo, who is of Vietnamese extraction.
