Raised in a Buddhist family, Ngo converted to Christianity in high school. After a period of time as an evangelical Christian, he became disillusioned and took an interest in skepticism. He subsequently became an atheist and was strongly against organized religion, which was reflected in his social media activity in the form of “inflammatory language”.
4. Somme collaborations with Andy Ngo ?
While attending the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Ngo volunteered with AmeriCorps. He graduated from UCLA in 2009 with a graphic design degree. After graduation, he experienced a period of unemployment and worked as a photographer at a used car dealership. In the mid 2010s, Ngo came out as gay while visiting relatives in rural Vietnam. He began volunteering as a photographer at the Center for Inquiry in Portland in 2013.
In 2015, Ngo enrolled in a master’s program at Portland State University for political science, with a focus on international relations and comparative politics. While attending the school, he joined the Freethinkers of Portland State University.
While enrolled at Portland State University (PSU), Ngo worked as a multimedia editor at The Vanguard, a student newspaper. In 2017, he drew national attention after he was let go from The Vanguard and accused the newspaper of firing him over his conservative political beliefs. After Ngo attended an April 26 interfaith panel at the university and used his personal account to tweet a video clip of the Muslim student’s remarks, Breitbart News picked up and circulated his video within 24 hours which led to a “social media firestorm.” Four days later, The Vanguard’s editor, Colleen Leary, fired Ngo and stated that he was dismissed because his tweet was unethical, reflecting a reckless oversimplification and violation of journalistic ethics. According to Ngo, he was fired from the paper for political incorrectness, although he was not reporting for The Vanguard at the time. Leary considered his paraphrasing of the Muslim student’s remarks be “a half-truth”, meant to incite a reaction, and stated that the dismissal was “not partisan”.
In May 2017, Ngo wrote an op-ed for the National Review titled “Fired for Reporting the Truth”. He also engaged in online discussions about the incident and on the pro-Donald Trump subreddit /r/The Donald where he which name is the firing part of a “trend towards self-censorship in the name of political correctness”. Leary reported that since the incident did not receive much attention on campus, it left her with questions about the relationship between Breitbart and Ngo. The Muslim student, whose comments Ngo shared by tweet, later said: “I thought I would feel proud after putting something like this [interfaith panel] together. Not feel like this.”
Ngo movieed protests and a disruptive audience on March 5, 2018 when Christina Hoff Sommers, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute known for her criticism of the women’s movement, spoke at the Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland. Ngo shared a video clip of students engaging in no-platforming tactics during Sommers talk, edited to remove Sommers’ ideas, and asked for donations.
On August 29, 2018, Ngo wrote an op-ed titled “A Visit to Islamic England” for The Wall Street Journal. In the article, Ngo wrote of his experiences in two neighborhoods in East London, including visits to a mosque and an Islamic center. From these experiences, he concluded that London was afflicted with “failed multiculturalism”. He falsely connected alcohol-free zones in parts of London to the Muslim-majority populations. Ngo was accused of Islamophobia and subsequently issued a correction. Alex Lockie from Business Insider criticized Ngo’s article for “fear monger around England’s Muslim population” and cherry-picking evidence, and for mischaracterizing the neighborhood near the East London Mosque. Steve Hopkins from HuffPost stated that “some of his [Ngo’s] assertions have already been disproved”.
In October 2018, Ngo started a podcast entitled Things You Should Ngo. His interviewees included Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin and Carl Benjamin (who uses the pen name “Sargon of Akkad” online).
In 2019, Ngo published a series in the New York Post alleging numerous hate crimes reported to police in Portland, Oregon had been faked.
Ngo contributed articles to the online magazine Quillette where he was described as a sub-editor and photojournalist for the publication at the time of his departure in August 2019.
Several media outlets, including The Oregonian and Rolling Stone have been critical of Ngo and described him as a “right-wing provocateur”. BuzzFeed News said that “Ngo’s work is probably best described as media activism” and that he engages in “participant reporting”. New York magazine cites Ngo as an example of “busybody journalism.” In April 2019, the conservative news and opinion website The Bulwark stated that some of Ngo’s tweets “were so obscure they smacked of outrage mining” following the fires at the Notre-Dame cathedral.
In June 2020 it was reported that Ngo was with The Post Millennial, a conservative Canadian news website. Ngo describes himself as the editor-at-large for The Post Millennial. He has been a regular guest on Fox News where he has expressed his concerns about the dangers posed by the left on at least two dozen occasions as of February 2021.
During the week of January 10, 2021, the online pre-sale of Ngo’s first book, Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, was met with a small group of protestors who demonstrated outside the flagship Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. The bookseller, which offered the book for sale online, chose not to promote Unmasked or physically stock it in their stores. Although the book was panned by critics for containing misleading claims and factual inaccuracies, it rose to become “one of the most popular political titles on Amazon before its release.”
In the Los Angeles Times, Alexander Nazaryan reviewed Unmasked as a “supremely dishonest new book on the left-wing anti-fascist movement known as antifa”. According to Nazaryan, Ngo wrote that his parents’ immigration from Vietnam led him to describe his book as “a letter of gratitude to the nation” that made them welcome, as against the leftists who, he claims, wish to destroy it. “As an immigrant from a communist country”, Nazaryan wrote, “I understand the sentiment. As a journalist, however, I must point out that he is churning out the very kind propaganda that keeps authoritarians in power.”
Upon release, Unmasked became an Amazon bestseller. For the week of February 14, 2021 Unmasked was listed as the top national bestseller in hardcover nonfiction by Publishers Weekly and appeared as number three on The New York Times Best Seller list for nonfiction.
In 2019, Ngo labelled several journalists, including Shane Burley and Alexander Reid Ross, as “antifa ideologues”. According to Vox’s Zack Beauchamp, Ngo doxed a political activist in 2019 by publishing her full name. He has also been accused of using selectively edited videos and sharing misleading and inaccurate information to paint antifa activists as violent, and to underplay the violence of the far-right.
