The Marxist antifa group managed to block the sale of a book that exposes the tactics and attacks they carried out in Portland, after intimidating and harassing the owners of the bookstore that had decided to sell the book, Breitbart reported.

Andy Ngo, an investigative journalist with Post Millennial, published his book “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy,” and the Powell Bookstore in Portland agreed to display the book on its shelves.

“Unmasked” tells the story of this violent Marxist movement from the beginning. It includes interviews with former supporters of the group, people who have been attacked by them, and incorporates stories from their own lives. This book contains unique documents obtained by the author and published for the first time.

After two consecutive days of harassing and intimidating the Powell bookstore, the owners issued a statement on Monday, Jan. 11, agreeing to the violent leftist group’s demands.

In a video posted by Andy Ngo, members of antifa can be seen harassing employees of the bookstore that eventually decided to close.

According to reason.com a Portland local media first to report on the issue, in its statement, the bookstore declared:“This book will not be on our store shelves, and we will not promote it. That said, it will remain in our online catalogue.”

Andy Ngo made headlines during the summer of 2020 when he was severely attacked by the violent group himself during a demonstration in downtown Portland. By then, the journalist had been behind the Antifa movements and managed to record the beating he received, which he then used to sue them.

In another tweet, Ngo posted a video uploaded by an antifa activist who promises to make it his life’s mission not to let the book be published.

In late June 2020, amid the national unrest that was triggered by the death of George Floyd, antifa and Black Lives Matter starred in the destruction of many cities, looting and violence against individuals allegedly under the banner of calling for an end to systemic racism in the United States. Ngo was summoned to testify in Congress.

When the Democrats denied the existence of antifa as “a myth,” Ngo testified to the attack he received and his knowledge of how they organize.

The Trump administration recently issued a memo detailing the attacks that antifa carried out in different instances and said that anyone entering the country with the intention of associating with the group would not be allowed to enter.

In May 2020, President Trump said he intended to declare antifa a domestic terrorist group, but there appears to be some legal barriers that prevented him from doing so.

In its statement, the bookstore defended its right to sell the publication, “While we understand that our decision to carry such books upsets some customers and staff members, we do not want to create an echo chamber of preapproved voices and ideas. It is not our mission or inclination to decide to whom our customers should listen.”

The courageous words of the Powell bookstore owners are a fresh reminder to all Americans who are currently experiencing a major wave of censorship by the intolerant radical left led by the Democrats, Big Tech, and mainstream media who are trying to put people against each other.
