Antifa Demands Powell’s Stop Selling Andy Ngo’s Book, Forces Store To Close Early
Far-left activists surrounded Powell’s Books in Portland on Monday and demanded the store stop selling Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, a book about antifa written by Andy Ngo. The protests forced the store to close early.
Powell’s announced that it would not carry the book in its physical store, though it will still be available for purchase online.
“This book will not be on our store shelves, and we will not promote it,” said Powell’s in a statement. “That said, it will remain in our online catalogue. We carry books that we find anywhere from simply distasteful or badly written, to execrable, as well as those that we treasure. We believe it is the work of bookselling to do so.”
Ngo, who has documented antifa’s tactics for various conservative news websites and was once attacked by the group, tweeted video footage of the protesters. One such protester claimed that disrupting the book’s dissemination was akin to “stopping the historical publication of Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf.'”
“We have to show up every day until they stop selling that f—king book”
