Twitchy told you earlier about Sen. Mazie Hirono getting up and walking out of Sen. Ted Cruz’s hearing on “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence” while declining to make any comment critical of Antifa.
The hearing was poorly attended, especially by GOP Senators, which is a shame, because the testimony given was eye-opening to those who haven’t been watching videos of the attacks on the federal courthouse in Portland and the federal agents guarding it.
Here’s Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli testifying about the injuries sustained by law enforcement officers:

Mostly peaceful eye injuries.

Too bad this is senate only, would've been fun to have Nadler there.

Jerry Nadler, the congressman who called Antifa an “imaginary thing”?
It's crazy that lasers of that strength are allowed to be bought by anyone. Having said that, you also allow almost anyone to buy a gun. I'm amazed we haven't seen officers shot at these riots yet.

Use a laser, go to jail. TEN YEARS.
There. I fixed it.

This needs to be a severely punishable offense. To attempt to blind officers permanently is almost as serious as a deadly offense. It should be recognized as so by law.

Democrats snicker when officers get hurt

And here’s Andy Ngo, who’s had plenty of run-ins with Antifa:

"I have worked undercover for months and I’ve seen with my own eyes how hundreds of so-called protesters work together to carry out acts of organized criminality against government and civilians."

This man deserves a medal.

Was Nadler in the room? Glad you got the chance to address DC. But will they go on with business as usual?

Here's hoping this Congressional hearing provides any meaningful relief or protective legislation.

It is the Portland city officials that incubated this Petri dish of violence.

He forgot to mention Antifa has sympathizers (or members) in the local press there. Hell, the local government officials have cut the legs out from under the police force. People are getting attacked in broad daylight. Anyone with a generic press sticker can’t be touched by cops.

Andy should receive a Pulitzer for his brave work of REAL Journalism.

This chap has been the people’s eyes and ears on the frontlines of the riots and as such, should be respected.

I watched it live. You did an excellent job presenting the facts

Imagine what these people would be like with full government support if this is how they carry on now with only limited partial support.

Thank you @MrAndyNgo for your fearless, intrepid reporting. No one has done more to expose Antifa then you. A single ray of truth that has shattered the mainstream media blackout
— Todd (@MadTownTodd) August 5, 2020
You were excellent. I noticed none of the Democrats wanted to question you which speaks volumes!

And just to show how effective the anarchists’ PR campaign has been, here’s Sen. Ron Wyden praising Portland’s “Wall of Moms”:
Many of the people from the “wall of moms” were filmed engaging in rioting themselves, @RonWyden. For example, one handled out slabs of concrete for others to use as projectiles, another tried to break into federal court front door & another used rope to try & pull down barrier. https://t.co/NAm2FJRyub
