Patriot Prayer tried to hold a “#HimToo” rally on Saturday in downtown Portland to protest the times when a man has been unjustly accused of sex crimes. It’s standard that Antifa shows up and creates violence. Six people were arrested.
Mayor Ted Wheeler says he is proud to be the Mayor of Portland. But when pushed about the lack of control from the last big rally, he attempted to set aside a park as the only place protesters could gather. The proposal failed miserably.
Six people were arrested:
According to PortlandOregon.gov:
During today’s events, there were multiple assaults reported, as well as projectiles thrown at demonstrators and officers. Officers observed sticks, glass bottles, lit road flares, bottles filled with a substance believed to be urine, and gopher gas used as projectiles.
The Portland Police Bureau spent considerable time planning for today’s demonstration and counter demonstration,” said Chief Danielle Outlaw. “We used significant resources and attempted to keep opposing groups apart, both when they were in the parks and as they traveled through downtown. Our goal was to keep all people in the community safe.”
At this time, the Police Bureau is aware that the following riot control agents and less lethal impact munitions were used in response to the violent and assaultive behavior of the crowd and after the crowd failed to disperse in response to police orders:

If you can stand to listen to the screaming in this video, this Antifa member with purple hair screams at “Tiny,” a member of Patriot Prayer. She repeatedly called him a “piece of s***” and “you want to murder an entire race” as she completely lost it. Her name is Hannah McClintock and she was arrested for harassment.
It appears as if Portland will never grow up.
