Another Sign of the Times? 'Planned Companionhood' Advocates for Pet Abortions

No matter what bombshell report or undercover video surfaces, Planned Parenthood never takes the hit and they just keep trucking along. Try this mental exercise out for a second --- would the left be just as praiseworthy of a group that facilitated pet abortions?

Doc Thompson filled in for Glenn on radio Friday and had an interesting interview with a caller named Rich Pronsky who is starting a business called Planned Companionhood.

"You know, you're still going to have cats and dogs who get pregnant," Rich said. "You know, they have one too many at the kitty bar or whatever, and they wind up with this litter of babies that they might not want. And I believe --- I assume everybody does, the pets have the right to choose. It's their furry bodies, it's their choice."

Just who is this monster you might ask? Rich happens to be none other than former Blaze personality and comedian, Brian Sack. Don't worry animal lovers, Planned Companionhood is not coming to a dog park near you --- you can bark easy.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

DOC: Hi, there it's Doc Thompson in for Glenn today. Thank you so much for joining me. Joined also by my fellow morning Blaze Brad Staggs and Kris Cruz along with Kal. We're regularly heard on the Blaze radio network. Weekday morning 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. Eastern time just go TheBlaze.com/Doc to find out more about us. We talk a lot about businesses and entrepreneurship, I think that's really the backbone of America. Capitalism and free market. And the more we can teach people that and support businesses, it's going to be better for all of us. So we often give people free airtime. We just say come and promote your business. The listeners get to hear about great stories of entrepreneurial and great products. So if you have a business that you want to discuss, just tweet ought at any time with the #BuildingAmerica. #BuildingAmerica, and we go through from time to time and we'll reach out to you saying, hey, we have an opening. We're usually backlogged a few weeks or so. Obviously a lot of people are interested.

BRAD: Free advertising? Backlog?

DOC: Yeah, imagine that. If you're interested, you can go back and search.

KRIS: And it's interesting you say we will go through me. That we is one person.

DOC: Yeah, by "we" I mean Kris. So we spotlight those. Sometimes their businesses have been around for a while, sometimes startup businesses. We have one of those startup business that is trying to get crowd sourcing trying to get started. It's an interesting startup. Rich is joining us from Planned Companionhood. Rich, How are you doing, buddy?

CALLER: Hi, how are you, Doc?

DOC: Doing well, sir. Give me the basic concept of what your business is.

CALLER: Sure. First, thank you for having me on. This is a great platform for me. I'm very excited. I had this idea that came to me the other night, and I did what pretty much all of my friends on Facebook have done. I started a GoFundMe to kind of raise money for this concept. It's Planned Companionhood and what I want to establish is a series of clinics across the United States that provide health services for pets.

DOC: Okay. That's --

KRIS: That's pretty smart.

DOC: How does that differ from any of the veterinarian services or health services out there?

CALLER: You're right. I don't have a degree in veterinarianism. I'm trying to get one from a prest I cannot online university. It's taking some time. I will have it. But in the meantime, we offer services very similar. We spay and neuter cats and dogs, mostly. And something I thought of I thought was very clever. We're going to offer mammal grams. So they're like a pet mammogram. And, again, I don't have the degree in veterinarianism, so you take the cat booby or whatever the medical term is. And you have the glass plates and see if there are any troubles. Also, we're going to offer pet pregnancy counseling to cats and dogs just to kind of guide -- what to expect when you're expecting kind of thing.

BRAD: To the owners of the pets; right? I mean, you're offering counseling to the owners of the pets.

CALLER: Oh, that's interesting. That's interesting. You know, that's not a bad idea. We include the owners. Bring the owners in.

DOC: Yeah, they could be a part of that. I can see that. So you're doing a lot of reproductive health as part of this clinic; is that right.

CALLER: Absolutely. We're going to offer contraceptives. We have kitty condoms, doggy diaphragms, and the IUD, which I understand is for intrauterine because that's -- I tried it out on him, and he seemed to, you know, not take to it. But we'll see. Maybe it works on other dogs. I don't know.

DOC: Interesting. Interesting. Yeah.

CALLER: And we're going to offer of course pregnancy termination.

DOC: So you can spade and neuter before, but you're also going to terminate pregnancies as well for pets?

CALLER: Well, you know, you kind of have to because even though you make these efforts and try to control pet overpopulation or whatever and get the message out there. But, you know, you're still going to have cats and dogs who get pregnant. You know, they have one too many at the kitty bar or whatever, and they wind up with this litter of babies that they might not want. And I believe -- I assume everybody does, the pets have the right to choose. It's their furry bodies, it's their choice.

DOC: So kitty and doggy abortions is what you're saying.

CALLER: Well, I don't like to use that word so I call it termination.

DOC: Okay. Uh-huh. So if they -- this is -- wow that's kind of new. I hadn't heard that. We always hear spade and neuter your pets. Control pet overpopulation. Spade and neuter.

CALLER: That's where I think Planned Companionhood is different.

DOC: Okay. Is pet overpopulation still that big of an issue where we would have to get to the point where you're aborting -- I'm sorry terminating the kitties and puppies? Is it that big of a --

CALLER: You have orphan pets all over the place and the adoption process for pets can take sometimes minutes to hours to get, you know? These pets and that might be a handful.

KRIS: Kris Cruz here. I just have a question for you. You say you posted this on Facebook. Have you gotten any backlash from, you know, the people who are against puppies abortion or any kind of abortion?

CALLER: Well, honestly, what is the red face mean?

DOC: Oh, the emoji? I don't think that's a good one for you.

CALLER: I haven't looked into it. We have a lot of those, but I can feel the energy shortly after we posted it. But I've really been devoting my morning especially to just kind of coming up with my ideas.

DOC: Kind of formulating them.

BRAD: What about counseling? With this counseling, is there going to be alternatives discussed? I mean --

CALLER: You know, we've -- it's more, you know, more like counseling like scheduling the pregnancy termination. Like, what day works better for you? Would a Friday be better? Do you want to come in on a weekend? Monday after work. Like, what -- we're going to work about -- it's about accommodating the people. The kitties or the doggies.

BRAD: I would think somebody would be willing to take the puppies the kids were born and somebody would be able to take them and adopt them.

CALLER: Yeah, I don't know. It just seems to me, you know, you want to give the pet the right to just say, you know, I want this or I don't want this. Get it out of here, you know? Because honestly, and, again, I don't have a degree in veterinarianism, and I will soon from a prest I cannot and accredited online university. But from what I know, it's just a clump of cells in there until they're born. And --

DOC: So you're saying because of these animals are pregnant, we've got to control overpopulation that it's better to go ahead and just abort them, the doggies and kitties, rather than just have people come by and adopt them?

CALLER: Yeah, because, you know, when a kitty cat or doggy gets knocked up for whatever reason, and they forgot to practice whatever and things happen, and then they get pregnant, you don't want to burden that kitty cat or doggy with puppies and kitties meowing and things.

DOC: Okay. I imagine there's going to be some people -- we're talking with Rich Pronsky from Planned Companionhood or what he hopes will become a series of clinics.

CALLER: Right now, we have raised $34.17.

KRIS: What's your goal?

CALLER: We need at least 250 million.

KRIS: Okay. And that covers.

CALLER: That covers the whole country plus give myself a decent salary.

KRIS: So that covers all the clinics or just one clinic with multiple doctors? I mean not doctors, veterinarians with veterinarianism certification, or is it just you performing all of these procedures?

CALLER: No. No. There will be all scattered all over the country and, you know, people are going to come in, they're going to come in on a leisure, they're going to come in however they want to come in, and we're going to help them.

DOC: So I have to think there's going to be some people who don't like the idea of dog abortions or cat abortions.

CALLER: I did run into a few of those on the sidewalk. Yeah.

DOC: What is your response to them where they're saying, hey, that's a life, and you're killing the little doggies and puppies? What do you say to those people?

CALLER: They made an argument, yes, this is an adorable puppy. How could you do that to an adorable puppy. Like, look at this little puppy right here how cute is she? And I was rubbing her. And I understand what they're saying. But then again, you know, if you have a cat or a dog that has a bunch of puppies or kitties inside, you know? Why not encourage them to kill them?

BRAD: Cost. Let's talk about cost. Is this going to -- you're going to obviously charge people -- the owners, I'm assuming are going to end up paying for these terminations.

CALLER: Preferably the taxpayer would. I'm going to see what I can do about that. But we have gotten some grants from the USDA, which I assume is the United States dog association. I don't really know.

KRIS: We know that Bob Hope; right? He was --

DOC: No, Bob Barker.

KRIS: Bob Barker.

BRAD: Bob Hope's dead.

KRIS: Have you tried to reach out to any celebrities? Because this is something they might want to get involved with.

DOC: Yeah, Drew Carey took over for barker.

CALLER: I haven't thought about that. But if you could recommend that, that would be great. You need that celebrity to help kind of sell your -- you know like when Sean Penn helps sell Venezuela and Hugo Ch·vez, you want someone like that and deliver that message who says take this. It's great.

DOC: So animals come in, and they're already pregnant, and you're saying we're going to go ahead and abort the kitties and puppies.

CALLER: If you don't, they're going to run out and have a back alley pet abortion.

KRIS: Or they're going to go to Mexico and have a abortion, which is dangerous.

BRAD: And then they have the slut term.

DOC: I didn't realize back alley pet abortions were a thing. But what would be the problem with that -- why is that a concern of yours --

CALLER: Because I haven't been in a back alley in a long time. Long story, and it ended poorly. But, you know, I assume that these things are going on in back alleys all the time if we don't establish these clinics.

DOC: So you establish a fee. But is that per kitty or doggy aborted? Or is that per service.

KRIS: Terminated.

DOC: Because, you know, sometimes it could be three or five, and you don't know. So the dog comes in, and you go it's going to be certain fee. But then it ends up being six puppies.

CALLER: Right. We call that jackpot.

DOC: Oh, for you?

CALLER: That's when you go, like, yes. And you do that gesture with your hand, and you go "yes" because that means you're going to make extra money. If you're expecting three, and you got six, that's bonus time.

BRAD: So there is some profit to be had on that backside? That makes sense from a profit standpoint.

DOC: We've heard this forever. Control pet population. How come you still have so many pets getting pregnant like this is for years -- have them spade and neutered, and we still have a pet overpopulation problem. How come we still have it then?

CALLER: A very, very good question. Basically pets in the U.S. are not getting quality sex education. And if you think about it, you know, most cats are locked up in a house like a Saudi wife. And dogs, they're literally kept on a very short leash and, you know, when you see people walking their dogs, you don't see them giving them education in sex, talking about the birds and bees. You just see them letting them pee all over the place.

DOC: And that would be a good opportunity right there, I would think --

CALLER: You get to -- yes, instead of getting down and picking up the pooh-pooh, you get down there, and you say, you know, if the dog's name is Rover, you go Rover, let's get a little awkward now and talk about things.

DOC: I mean, I'm not a fan of abortion. We're talking with rich from Planned Companionhood. I don't like abortion, but I can imagine you getting backlash online from this.

CALLER: Yeah, it does seem to be growing.

BRAD: You can take that awkward moment when your dog is humping your leg to --

DOC: This is a teachable moment.

KRIS: Are you going to lead with pet puppy termination? Or are you just going to be, like, hey, we provide all of this other stuff? Or are you just going to lead with the pet terminations?

CALLER: Well, I think like any business, you're going to go where the profit center is; right? Now, once again, I don't have a degree in business, but I am working on one from a prestigious online university, but I know when I run my business, and I'll just tell you right now we're up to $34.82. When I do run my business, I'm going to go where the profit is.

DOC: Rich, interesting concept. We wish you the best in your business.

From the moment the 33-year-old Thomas Jefferson arrived at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in 1776, he was on the radical side. That caused John Adams to like him immediately. Then the Congress stuck Jefferson and Adams together on the five-man committee to write a formal statement justifying a break with Great Britain, and their mutual admiration society began.

Jefferson thought Adams should write the Declaration. But Adams protested, saying, “It can't come from me because I'm obnoxious and disliked." Adams reasoned that Jefferson was not obnoxious or disliked, therefore he should write it. Plus, he flattered Jefferson, by telling him he was a great writer. It was a master class in passing the buck.

So, over the next 17 days, Jefferson holed up in his room, applying his lawyer skills to the ideas of the Enlightenment. He borrowed freely from existing documents like the Virginia Declaration of Rights. He later wrote that “he was not striving for originality of principle or sentiment." Instead, he hoped his words served as “an expression of the American mind."

It's safe to say he achieved his goal.

The five-man committee changed about 25 percent of Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration before submitting it to Congress. Then, Congress altered about one-fifth of that draft. But most of the final Declaration's words are Jefferson's, including the most famous passage — the Preamble — which Congress left intact. The result is nothing less than America's mission statement, the words that ultimately bind the nation together. And words that we desperately need to rediscover because of our boiling partisan rage.

The Declaration is brilliant in structure and purpose. It was designed for multiple audiences: the King of Great Britain, the colonists, and the world. And it was designed for multiple purposes: rallying the troops, gaining foreign allies, and announcing the creation of a new country.

The Declaration is structured in five sections: the Introduction, Preamble, the Body composed of two parts, and the Conclusion. It's basically the most genius breakup letter ever written.

In the Introduction, step 1 is the notificationI think we need to break up. And to be fair, I feel I owe you an explanation...

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…

The Continental Congress felt they were entitled by “the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" to “dissolve the political bands," but they needed to prove the legitimacy of their cause. They were defying the world's most powerful nation and needed to motivate foreign allies to join the effort. So, they set their struggle within the entire “Course of human events." They're saying, this is no petty political spat — this is a major event in world history.

Step 2 is declaring what you believe in, your standardsHere's what I'm looking for in a healthy relationship...

This is the most famous part of the Declaration; the part school children recite — the Preamble:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That's as much as many Americans know of the Declaration. But the Preamble is the DNA of our nation, and it really needs to be taken as a whole:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Preamble takes us through a logical progression: All men are created equal; God gives all humans certain inherent rights that cannot be denied; these include the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; to protect those rights, we have governments set up; but when a government fails to protect our inherent rights, people have the right to change or replace it.

Government is only there to protect the rights of mankind. They don't have any power unless we give it to them. That was an extraordinarily radical concept then and we're drifting away from it now.

The Preamble is the justification for revolution. But note how they don't mention Great Britain yet. And again, note how they frame it within a universal context. These are fundamental principles, not just squabbling between neighbors. These are the principles that make the Declaration just as relevant today. It's not just a dusty parchment that applied in 1776.

Step 3 is laying out your caseHere's why things didn't work out between us. It's not me, it's you...

This is Part 1 of the Body of the Declaration. It's the section where Jefferson gets to flex his lawyer muscles by listing 27 grievances against the British crown. This is the specific proof of their right to rebellion:

He has obstructed the administration of justice...

For imposing taxes on us without our consent...

For suspending our own legislatures...

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us...

Again, Congress presented these “causes which impel them to separation" in universal terms to appeal to an international audience. It's like they were saying, by joining our fight you'll be joining mankind's overall fight against tyranny.

Step 4 is demonstrating the actions you took I really tried to make this relationship work, and here's how...

This is Part 2 of the Body. It explains how the colonists attempted to plead their case directly to the British people, only to have the door slammed in their face:

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury...

They too have been deaf to the voice of justice... We must, therefore... hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

This basically wrapped up America's argument for independence — we haven't been treated justly, we tried to talk to you about it, but since you refuse to listen and things are only getting worse, we're done here.

Step 5 is stating your intent — So, I think it's best if we go our separate ways. And my decision is final...

This is the powerful Conclusion. If people know any part of the Declaration besides the Preamble, this is it:

...that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved...

They left no room for doubt. The relationship was over, and America was going to reboot, on its own, with all the rights of an independent nation.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The message was clear — this was no pitchfork mob. These were serious men who had carefully thought through the issues before taking action. They were putting everything on the line for this cause.

The Declaration of Independence is a landmark in the history of democracy because it was the first formal statement of a people announcing their right to choose their own government. That seems so obvious to us now, but in 1776 it was radical and unprecedented.

In 1825, Jefferson wrote that the purpose of the Declaration was “not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before thought of… but to place before mankind the common sense of the subject, in terms so plain and firm… to justify ourselves in the independent stand we are compelled to take."

You're not going to do better than the Declaration of Independence. Sure, it worked as a means of breaking away from Great Britain, but its genius is that its principles of equality, inherent rights, and self-government work for all time — as long as we actually know and pursue those principles.

On June 7, 1776, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania State House, better known today as Independence Hall. Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies' independence. The “Lee Resolution" was short and sweet:

Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.

Intense debate followed, and the Congress voted 7 to 5 (with New York abstaining) to postpone a vote on Lee's Resolution. They called a recess for three weeks. In the meantime, the delegates felt they needed to explain what they were doing in writing. So, before the recess, they appointed a five-man committee to come up with a formal statement justifying a break with Great Britain. They appointed two men from New England — Roger Sherman and John Adams; two from the middle colonies — Robert Livingston and Benjamin Franklin; and one Southerner — Thomas Jefferson. The responsibility for writing what would become the Declaration of Independence fell to Jefferson.

In the rotunda of the National Archives building in Washington, D.C., there are three original documents on permanent display: the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. These are the three pillars of the United States, yet America barely seems to know them anymore. We need to get reacquainted — quickly.

In a letter to his friend John Adams in 1816, Jefferson wrote: “I like the dreams of the future, better than the history of the past."

America used to be a forward-looking nation of dreamers. We still are in spots, but the national attitude that we hear broadcast loudest across media is not looking toward the future with optimism and hope. In late 2017, a national poll found 59% of Americans think we are currently at the “lowest point in our nation's history that they can remember."

America spends far too much time looking to the past for blame and excuse. And let's be honest, even the Right is often more concerned with “owning the left" than helping point anyone toward the practical principles of the Declaration of Independence. America has clearly lost touch with who we are as a nation. We have a national identity crisis.

The Declaration of Independence is America's thesis statement, and without it America doesn't exist.

It is urgent that we get reacquainted with the Declaration of Independence because postmodernism would have us believe that we've evolved beyond the America of our founding documents, and thus they're irrelevant to the present and the future. But the Declaration of Independence is America's thesis statement, and without it America doesn't exist.

Today, much of the nation is so addicted to partisan indignation that "day-to-day" indignation isn't enough to feed the addiction. So, we're reaching into America's past to help us get our fix. In 2016, Democrats in the Louisiana state legislature tabled a bill that would have required fourth through sixth graders to recite the opening lines of the Declaration. They didn't table it because they thought it would be too difficult or too patriotic. They tabled it because the requirement would include the phrase “all men are created equal" and the progressives in the Louisiana legislature didn't want the children to have to recite a lie. Representative Barbara Norton said, “One thing that I do know is, all men are not created equal. When I think back in 1776, July the fourth, African Americans were slaves. And for you to bring a bill to request that our children will recite the Declaration, I think it's a little bit unfair to us. To ask our children to recite something that's not the truth. And for you to ask those children to repeat the Declaration stating that all men's are free. I think that's unfair."

Remarkable — an elected representative saying it wouldn't be fair for students to have to recite the Declaration because “all men are not created equal." Another Louisiana Democrat explained that the government born out of the Declaration “was used against races of people." I guess they missed that part in school where they might have learned that the same government later made slavery illegal and amended the Constitution to guarantee all men equal protection under the law. The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were an admission of guilt by the nation regarding slavery, and an effort to right the wrongs.

Yet, the progressive logic goes something like this: many of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence, including Thomas Jefferson who wrote it, owned slaves; slavery is evil; therefore, the Declaration of Independence is not valid because it was created by evil slave owners.

It's a sad reality that the left has a very hard time appreciating the universal merits of the Declaration of Independence because they're so hung up on the long-dead issue of slavery. And just to be clear — because people love to take things out of context — of course slavery was horrible. Yes, it is a total stain on our history. But defending the Declaration of Independence is not an effort to excuse any aspect of slavery.

Okay then, people might say, how could the Founders approve the phrase “All men are created equal," when many of them owned slaves? How did they miss that?

They didn't miss it. In fact, Thomas Jefferson included an anti-slavery passage in his first draft of the Declaration. The paragraph blasted King George for condoning slavery and preventing the American Colonies from passing legislation to ban slavery:

He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights to life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere... Determined to keep open a market where men should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce.

We don't say “execrable" that much anymore. It means, utterly detestable, abominable, abhorrent — basically very bad.

Jefferson was upset when Georgia and North Carolina threw up the biggest resistance to that paragraph. Ultimately, those two states twisted Congress' arm to delete the paragraph.

Still, how could a man calling the slave trade “execrable" be a slaveowner himself? No doubt about it, Jefferson was a flawed human being. He even had slaves from his estate in Virginia attending him while he was in Philadelphia, in the very apartment where he was writing the Declaration.

Many of the Southern Founders deeply believed in the principles of the Declaration yet couldn't bring themselves to upend the basis of their livelihood. By 1806, Virginia law made it more difficult for slave owners to free their slaves, especially if the owner had significant debts as Jefferson did.

At the same time, the Founders were not idiots. They understood the ramifications of signing on to the principles described so eloquently in the Declaration. They understood that logically, slavery would eventually have to be abolished in America because it was unjust, and the words they were committing to paper said as much. Remember, John Adams was on the committee of five that worked on the Declaration and he later said that the Revolution would never be complete until the slaves were free.

Also, the same generation that signed the Declaration started the process of abolition by banning the importation of slaves in 1807. Jefferson was President at the time and he urged Congress to pass the law.

America has an obvious road map that, as a nation, we're not consulting often enough.

The Declaration took a major step toward crippling the institution of slavery. It made the argument for the first time about the fundamental rights of all humans which completely undermined slavery. Planting the seeds to end slavery is not nearly commendable enough for leftist critics, but you can't discount the fact that the seeds were planted. It's like they started an expiration clock for slavery by approving the Declaration. Everything that happened almost a century later to end slavery, and then a century after that with the Civil Rights movement, flowed from the principles voiced in the Declaration.

Ironically for a movement that calls itself progressive, it is obsessed with retrying and judging the past over and over. Progressives consider this a better use of time than actually putting past abuses in the rearview and striving not to be defined by ancestral failures.

It can be very constructive to look to the past, but not when it's used to flog each other in the present. Examining history is useful in providing a road map for the future. And America has an obvious road map that, as a nation, we're not consulting often enough. But it's right there, the original, under glass. The ink is fading, but the words won't die — as long as we continue to discuss them.

'Good Morning Texas' gives exclusive preview of Mercury One museum

Screen shot from Good Morning Texas

Mercury One is holding a special exhibition over the 4th of July weekend, using hundreds of artifacts, documents and augmented reality experiences to showcase the history of slavery — including slavery today — and a path forward. Good Morning Texas reporter Paige McCoy Smith went through the exhibit for an exclusive preview with Mercury One's chief operating officer Michael Little on Tuesday.

Watch the video below to see the full preview.

Over the weekend, journalist Andy Ngo and several other apparent right-leaning people were brutally beaten by masked-gangs of Antifa protesters in Portland, Oregon. Short for "antifascist," Antifa claims to be fighting for social justice and tolerance — by forcibly and violently silencing anyone with opposing opinions. Ngo, who was kicked, punched, and sprayed with an unknown substance, is currently still in the hospital with a "brain bleed" as a result of the savage attack. Watch the video to get the details from Glenn.
