As one member of the angry Antifa mob chasing Andy Ngo down a Portland, Ore., street tackled him to the ground just before midnight Friday, the journalist heard more approaching and was left with one thought, he told The Post: “This is how I’m to going to die. I hope they make it quick.”

Ngo’s crime, in the eyes of these criminals? Simply documenting what they do.

As the feds focus on the supposed threat from right-wing “violent extremists,” Antifa goons continue their terrorism and multimillion-dollar vandalism — and face no consequences for again assaulting the man working tirelessly to expose them.

Independent reporter Ngo is one of the few brave enough to cover Antifa. He narrowly escaped Friday night when two others covering the unrest around the Justice Center showed up, distracting his attackers. Ngo sprinted to one of the few businesses not boarded up, a hotel. With wounds all over his body and a bloodied eyeball, he called 911 on his cell as the taunts came from outside.

“I can’t wait for you to come out, Andy,” a woman screamed in livestreamed footage. “We’re going to beat the fuck out of you, b—h.”

Portland Antifa “protesters” already put Ngo in the hospital back in 2019. He’s gotten many death threats since, and graffiti around town reads “Kill Andy Ngo” and “Murder Andy Ngo.”

Since the latest attack, “I’ve been unable to walk. I can’t sleep. It’s excruciatingly painful just to use the toilet,” the soft-spoken son of Vietnamese immigrants told us. He finds it hard to put into words the psychological impact but refuses to let the mob beat him into silence.

“I’m staying on this beat,” he declared, adding it’s more important than ever because local media outlets play by Antifa’s rules, such as not using cameras to document the thugs’ criminal behavior. Not Ngo: “They view me as an existential threat because one of the things I do is when they get arrested, I look at county jail records.” He then stays up all night documenting their social media posts before they get a chance to delete them.

Some outlets like to claim there’s little evidence of Antifa presence at protests. But there is, and Ngo collects it.

Ngo sees no way Antifa can achieve its goal of destabilizing the entire country. But it still terrorizes towns like Portand, where politicians’ cowardice can let anarchy flourish. Indeed, Portland police never charged anyone in the 2019 attack, and nearly a week after this latest one, Ngo still hasn’t even heard from a detective.

The media could use a lot more truth-tellers like Andy Ngo. And the country could use a lot more officials paying attention to him.
