Police Reveal “Milkshakes” ANTIFA Threw May Have Been Made With Quick-Dry Cement

Radical group ANTIFA went on the attack Saturday in Portland, Oregon, where they assaulted conservative journalist Andy Ngo, and according to police, may have thrown “milkshakes” at him (and others) laced with cement.

Fox News reported that Some of the demonstrators turned violent, throwing milkshakes said to be mixed with quick-drying cement, raw eggs and pepper spray. The gatherings were deemed “civil disturbance and unlawful assembly” by the Portland Police Bureau and the perpetrators were believed to include members of both sides.

Watched the video:

Ngo was taken to the emergency room after the attack. He tweeted out these pictures on Saturday night.

Portland police, who declined to intervene and help Ngo during the beating, later tweeted out that they received information that the milkshakes being thrown by ANTIFA were laced with quick-drying cement.

The Mayor of Portland put out this controversial statement after viewing the footage of the Ngo attack.

Senator Ted Cruz responded, calling out Vox journalist Carlos Maza for inciting “milkshake” violence against conservatives.

Some Twitter users believe this video shows ANTIFA handing out the “cement” milkshakes.

OANN reporter Jack Posobiec offered this image, wondering if the contents in the container could be the quick-drying cement.

Youtube commentator Tim Pool pointed out how dangerous cement can be when it comes in contact with skin.

Police declared a civil disturbance in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday afternoon, after a day of duelling political protests culminated in brawls and standoffs between demonstrators and law enforcement.

By 3pm more than 400 leftwing marchers had blocked traffic in parts of downtown. Demonstrators occupied streets adjacent to Pioneer Courthouse Square, where police repeatedly warned them to disperse. Some were involved in altercations with officers in riot gear who deployed pepper spray and made three arrests. Others clashed intermittently with rightwing protesters.

The leftwing march evolved from an early afternoon rally in a downtown park organized as a counter-protest to two rightwing events. The rally organized by local group PopMob began as a vegan milkshake-themed rally and dance party, in response to rallies announced by the Proud Boys and by a group led by Haley Adams, a local rightwing figure. Adams’ event attracted around 25 people.

Milkshakes, recently used around the world as a symbolic weapon against prominent figures on the far right, became a theme of the day. Portland police claimed without offering evidence that some milkshake cups had been filled with quick-drying cement.

Actual milkshakes were used by leftwing protesters. A videographer and editor for the rightwing magazine Quillette, Andy Ngo, had one dumped on him early in the day.

Another incident involving Ngo captured attention, particularly on the right. Widely shared video taken by the Oregonian journalist Jim Ryan appeared to show Ngo being hit by counter-protesters and sprayed with silly string. Ryan tweeted: “Didn’t see how this started, but Ngo got roughed up.”

Ngo said he had been attacked and hospitalised, and posted to social mediapictures of apparent facial abrasions. With significant backing from rightwing media and political figures, by late Saturday a crowdfunding website for Ngo had raised more than $60,000.
