Religion News Service reports:
Andy Ngo, antifa critic and conservative media personality, has been removed as a speaker at the influential Q Ideas evangelical Christian conference, Religion News Service has learned.
His inclusion at Q Ideas had struck some commentators as an odd fit for the annual TED-style event, described as a “culture summit” for Christian influencers. Since his appearance was announced last week, conference organizers had received pushback on social media.
Ngo was a disciple of James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, a right-wing activist group. Ngo’s critics contend he has dishonestly portrayed his interactions with antifa, inflating the danger the activists pose, and intentionally provoked arguments with them.
From a Fox News report published yesterday:
Over the course of years, Ngô has endured physical attacks from people in crowds while covering Antifa or radical events, and even unwanted visitors at his and his parents’ homes, Ngô wrote in his book.
But everything came to a head earlier this year when Ngô left the country amid threats of violence and “an escalation of safety concerns,” he told Fox News. “It was just not safe anymore for me. I had already been on borrowed time,” he said when reached by phone.
On Monday, they dropped him.https://t.co/BFJzkxz9qX
