Andy Ngo spent four years trying to shine a light on the realities of Antifa. It nearly cost him his life on more than one occasion. His first hand accounts in the pages of this book are chilling. Altho’ the single incident from the summer of 2019 brought him to National and International prominence, there’s so much more to his story.
Ngo provides the history behind Antifa; it’s roots from Europe, how it’s mutated in England and the US. His focus has been the Pacific Northwest, especially Portland and Seattle. He knows the players and they know him; a fact that is highly evidenced in the stunning photography he’s included.
His research also includes a syllabus for new members to the Portland chapter. You’ll find this in chapter 4 of the book; it’s offered after months of vetting, 6, I believe, and has quite a bit of mandatory requirements. There are also numerous concessions for inabilities. It’s purposeful...
Andy supports all his writing with extensive notes and references. The last 25% of this volume is devoted to it. He also takes a brief chapter to share a quick biographical sketch of his parents and their journey from Viet Nam. For me, this inclusion added an element of urgency and sobriety for a life already too visible to sleep peacefully.
“Unmasked” is well written and lives up to its name - people, places & actions or lack thereof are all “Unmasked”📚
