Heavy police presence as right-wing rally begins in Portland

quote [ A right-wing group and self-described anti-fascist counter-protesters rallied in Portland, Oregon, Saturday as police tried to prevent the gatherings from turning violent as they have before. ]

Some very good people, on both sides.

It's not an accident. These bootlickers go where they know they're not wanted because they're hoping to stir up trouble so they can play victim and cry about the "intolerant left".

Nothing more pathetic than a butt-hurt white guy.

I still have trouble when someone says
"Wah! people are beating up Nazis." of feeling anything other than glee.

A couple of weeks ago a theater here in Portland showed Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. From the sound of it the whole audience found it rather cathartic.

That's the traditional method for capitalists. Nazis are usually hung.

It would take more lethal means to kill all the poor. you would have to use say a gas chamber to kill a bunch at a time and then there is the getting rid of all the bodies maybe an oven.

The concussive crack of stun grenades echoed through the streets of downtown Portland Saturday as groups on opposing sides of the political spectrum took to the streets.

But despite weeks of heated rhetoric, the protest — which was organized by right-wing Patriot Prayer and countered by groups on the left — resulted in little violence between the two groups. Past clashes have quickly devolved to open fistfights and mayhem.

Man Who Intimidated Portland Muslim Couple Days After MAX Stabbing Reaches Plea Deal
Harmes opened his driver side window and ordered Jaminah Shannon, a black Muslim woman, to take off her niqab and hijab.

“Take the burka off,” Harmes reportedly said. “This is America. Go back to your f***ing country.”

Shannon and her husband, Aleksandr Wray, slowed their car to let Harmes pass. Harmes kept pace with the couple for several blocks and continued to yell. He swerved his van toward the victims’ vehicle.

At a red light, Harmes hung out of his window and used his hands to mimic a gun. Using finger gestures, he pretended to shoot at the couple.

Obviously the real threat to our society is antifa.

You think he would have been on the side of the White Christian Nationalist? You know the ones carrying Tiki Torches and waving around the swastikas?
