After Antifa called for attacks on Tesla sites, Michael Paul Hargett allegedly carried out an arson attack next to a Seattle-area Tesla store and threatened to blow up the area

A 44-year-old Seattle-area man has been identified as the suspect in Friday's violent arson attack and bomb threat next to a Tesla property in Lynnwood, Wash. that led to an hours-long standoff finally ended by a SWAT team unit. The arson attack and bomb threat followed promises the same day by Twitter Antifa accounts to burn down Tesla properties as revenge against Elon Musk for suspending their accounts.

"AshRedacted" was a Portland Antifa account that organized and promoted violent direct actions

Michael Paul Hargett allegedly threatened a business owner with a screwdriver at a business next to a Tesla store on Nov. 25 before threatening responding police with a crowbar. According to the Lynnwood Police Department, Hargett said he was armed with a handgun. An attempt to tase the suspect failed. Police say he barricaded himself in a room and moved propane and acetylene tanks in position, threatening to blow up the area.

During the attack, Hargett allegedly smashed windows open so he could hurl projectiles at police. Once the suspect started a fire, a mobilized SWAT unit doused the flames with a fire hose before breaching the building by using a robot. Police evacuated the area during the stand off that lasted nearly five hours. 

Hargett was charged with felony second-degree assault, felony second-degree arson, felony first-degree malicious mischief of a business, felony theft of a motor vehicle and misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

The incident came at a tense time for Tesla as earlier the same day, a prominent Portland Antifa account that organized multiple violent direct actions had called for attacks on Tesla properties

"The fascist Elon Musk has chosen his side in history aligning with fascists and white supremacy so tonight we are calling for actions across the so-called 'US' at every local Tesla dealership," read the flyer shared by "@AshRedacted." The flyer listed Portland's Tesla store address and the account followed up with addresses of Tesla locations across the country. The account was later suspended following reporting by this journalist.

Though police have not stated a possible political motive for Friday's incident next to a Tesla store, Antifa accounts nonetheless praised the attack.

"Someone in Lynnwood, WA went to the Tesla service center last night and (allegedly) set it on fire only after (allegedly) threatening the pigs with a crowbar and getting tased. They had to call in swat. F—kin' legend," tweeted Rose City Antifa member, "@Redwood_PDX.

But not every Antifa account was happy that calls for attacks were announced early on Twitter. 

"You do not need to announce a target before hitting it. In fact you should explicitly not do that," wrote Portland Antifa account, "@dennisispeasant.

"If the goal is the immediate gains from an attack I shouldn’t know about it until after it happens and I should never know who did it...We are massively underpowered compared to our enemies and thus we must be f—ng sneaky."

Seattle-area reporter Jonathan Choe was outside the stand-off last Friday night. 

"When I arrived I saw multiple streets blocked off and the SWAT team was on scene trying to negotiate with a man who barricaded himself into an auto body shop," Choe said. "With multiple reports of threats by Antifa and far-left activists against Tesla, especially in the Pacific Northwest, I asked if this situation had anything to do with that. The officer said at the time he couldn’t confirm or deny anything since it was too early."

At the bail hearing for the suspect on Monday afternoon in Snohomish County, the judge said Hargett has another open criminal case for burglary. State prosecutors requested bail be increased from $50,000 to $100,000, but that was denied by the judge. Hargett is still currently in the county jail.

Andy Ngo interviews Irish activist: 'Ireland is full!'

I interviewed anti-mass migration activist Gavin Pepper at the site of a former migrant encampment in Dublin, Ireland. He's a cab driver who says mass migration and asylum abuse are ruining his country, which has a long and bloody tradition of nationalism. The interview was conducted before the mass stabbing attack of children in Dublin on Nov. 23, 2023 allegedly by an Algerian immigrant. Mass rioting broke out in the city center in reaction to the stabbing.

Breaking: Judge rules against defaulted Antifa defendants in Andy Ngo lawsuit

BREAKING: At a hearing today regarding three defaulted Antifa defendants in my Ngo v. Rose City Antifa, et al. lawsuit, the court heard evidence about the brutal June 29, 2019 beating I suffered at a Rose City Antifa event where I was seriously injured. The court found that I was indeed battered and assaulted by Madison "Denny" Lee Allen, Katherine "Corbyn" Belyea and Sammich Overkill Schott-Deputy (formerly Joseph Christian Evans). The court awarded me $300,000—to be split equally among these three attackers.

Today's victory is a small vindication for the disappointing jury verdict earlier this month at trial. Collecting on these judgments will pose serious challenges; however, I’m deeply grateful for the support of the Center for American Liberty and my counsel Dorothy Yamamoto, Gregory Michael, Harmeet Dhillon, James Buchal and Mark Trammell for believing in me, and helping me hold these attackers accountable for trying to violently silence my First Amendment rights. While it will...

Exclusive: View courtroom sketches of Ngo v. Antifa, et al. trial

Portland-based illustrator Tara Faul was in the courtroom during the trial for Andy Ngo v. Rose City Antifa, et al. earlier this month in Multnomah County, Ore. The talented artist has kindly shared her sketches and drawings with me. 

Some days during the seven-day trial had no photographer because of severe restrictions placed on media access by the court due to security concerns. The trial was marred by repeated security incidents and some have speculated that juror intimidation may have played a role in the verdict. Members of Antifa, including those with riot-related convictions or pending felony cases, were roaming the hallways and even entered the courtroom to try to intimidate me.

Trial defendants John Colin Hacker and Elizabeth Renee Richter were found not liable of assault and battery against me, even though Hacker admitted on the stand to one of the attacks.

Two weeks after the verdict was read, a follow-up court hearing resulted in three other defendants being found liable of assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress against me. Madison "Denny" Lee Allen, Katherine "Corbyn" Belyea, and Sammich Overkill Schott-Deputy (formerly Joseph Christian Evans)—all trans people — were ordered to pay me $300,000 in damages. The latest court development has caused Antifa to fume and rage.

Collecting on the ruling will be challenging due to the defendants' history of evasion. You can support my legal fund at the Center for American Liberty.

The court granted an order of default against Madison Lee Allen, Joseph Christian Evans and Corbyn/Katherine Belyea. Rose City Antifa was dismissed by the court on July 14, 2023 on the grounds that an unassociated entity cannot be sued.

The lawsuit against the remaining alleged antifa defendants John Colin Hacker and Elizabeth Renee Richter goes to trial later this summer. At the court hearing on July 14, the court denied Hacker and Richter's efforts to be dismissed from the lawsuit.
