If you have not figured out by now that groups like Rose City Antifa ARE fascist, not against fascism, you’re behind the curve. On Saturday, they continued their attacks on anyone who showed up for the “right wing” side. Violence was the name of the game. Some arrests were made, some weapons seized. They appear to own Portland, lock, stock, and barrel, and their Mayor Ted Wheeler is delusional.
Wheeler held a press conference after the protests and said it was “humbling to see how everyone came together to prevent violence at demonstrations in Portland.” Seriously delusional.
What on earth. https://t.co/WyJiMK3Bhl— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) August 18, 2019
Yes, Mr Wheeler, they all “came together” all right. All at once and all against those they have labelled “white supremacists.” With Rose City Antifa at the forefront of the attacks.
This time Antifa chanted “All police are bastards.” They taunted a black police officer, calling him “Uncle Tom” and “race traitor.” One woman with a bat taunted police, who ignored her. When police arrested an aggressive shirtless man, they screamed “police bias!”

According to the Post Millennial, “The police declared a civil disturbance and attempted to enforce an order to disperse, but were unsuccessful and had to retreat... As police retreated, Antifa took over the intersection of SW Park Avenue and Yamhill Street and started a block party. With pure chaos on the street, a cyclist had swerve to avoid an Antifa person on a scooter and was seriously injured.”Post Millennial

“Man was beaten and maced by Antifa. He wandered off dazed and bloodied and collapsed in a parking lot. No authorities have helped him yet.”
Antifa chased some people to a bus where they were attempting to hit them with a hammer. One person was finally able to snatch the hammer from an Antifa member and close the bus doors. The onslaught continued as Rose City Antifa members kicked in the panel and tried to get the hammer back.
But “everyone came together to prevent violence.” Right. Mayor Wheeler is dangerous and should be removed from office – but since the entire city is run by radical leftists, that won’t happen.
‘Anti-fascist protestors’ attacking a man with a hammer as Portland officials stand down. A hammer. Is this attempted murder? Who radicalized these soy boys? pic.twitter.com/j1RWd4a0WR— Chadwick Moore (@Chadwick_Moore) August 17, 2019
The mob rushed the buses as they were trying to leave & began attacking the vehicles w/concrete before attacking the people inside. The buses could not continue driving because protesters were standing in front. In that context the use of the hammer may have been in self-defense. https://t.co/Crmkkl6CmJ— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) August 18, 2019
After an Antifa goon stole a MAGA hat, a brave young black man intervened and attempted to get it back. “Hatred is not embedded in us, it’s created.” Well done and kudos to him for his calm statement.
Of all of the footage from Portland today, this one stands out for me. It’s hopeful. A young black man tries to convince a young white Antifa man to return stolen property—a MAGA hat that he swiped. “The hatred is not embeddd with in. It’s created,” he says. pic.twitter.com/83iRZ7VUxU— Barrett Wilson (@BarrettWilson6) August 18, 2019
One man was threatened with “Death is coming to your doorstep.” Though he claimed no political affiliation, the Antifa crowd surrounded him, screamed at him that he was a “nazi,” followed him, and toward the end of the video you can see a woman hit him in the back. The video does not show him being pepper sprayed as he claimed, although it obviously could have been some other substance. He said he was passing through Portland and stopped to take pictures, and was not part of the Proud Boys.

The left-leaning media continually pushed the idea that “right wing paramilitary groups” were to blame for the violence, calling them supportive of it. But the video evidence from independent journalists on the street clearly shows that Antifa were by far the attackers. Police at one point told a man that he was inciting violence by him just being there.
He came up to me again and people again surrounded me. He said I get hurt then that was on me. Police came back said I was provoking them by being there. pic.twitter.com/yHTx34CU50— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) August 17, 2019
Thirteen (13) people were arrested, and 6 persons injured according to the liberal media. Seven hundred (700) law enforcement officers from 15 different agencies were there. There is another planned demonstration next month, and Antifa promises to be there.
The most damage is to the psyche of everyone in America- the hate and division perpetrated by this gang of thugs alters the truth dramatically. They own the city of Portland, and their rhetoric is the only thing anyone hears.
“Antifa was just protecting their city from nazis” is the prevailing idea.
