Portland prepares for city's largest far-right rally of the Trump era

They come in peace! Promise!

"The protest has been promoted primarily by Floridian Joe Biggs, a member of the rightwing Proud Boys organization. Biggs is a combat veteran and a former employee of the conspiracy broadcaster Alex Jones’s Infowars network. He claims that up to 1,000 people from around the country will attend Saturday’s unpermitted event on the city’s waterfront.

In promoting the rally on social media, Biggs has brandished a Trump-themed baseball bat, appeared in videos wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Training to Throw Communists Out of Helicopters” – a reference to the Chilean Pinochet regime’s methods for executing dissidents – and has taunted antifascists, saying “You’re not gonna feel safe when you go out in public” and “I’m gonna stomp your ass into the ground, Antifa”."

Can’t wait for antifa to show up wearing their masks and assaulting those that dare exercise their first amendment rights...then for members on this board to call the assaults justified.

Who wants to make a bet about which group, left or right instigates the violence?

It's ok, Trump and Cruz will roll over for them and cry out when Antifa gets into a fight with them.

Hmmm Non Permitted protest? You probably already gave those racist proud boys a pass right?

You either didn't read this guy's comments or you don't understand the meaning of "instigate". He says right there for all the world to read "I'm going to beat you and kill you". And he's lathered up in Trump logo wear.

I guess it ain't just the sprocket.

Better lock up the milk shakes.....

So, the "largest right wing rally" means there will be 75 Nazis this time instead of the usual 50?

Thanks to quotes listed in the first post coupled with the Cider Riots, anti fascists now have written proof they can defend themselves. Not that it matters because Republicans will cry and whine the counter protesters are terrorists......

I look forward to seeing the results of this Far right racist rally, as it seems Portland is starting to come down hard on the violent protesters right and left wing that have brawled in recent months.

Why??? This is like going to Saudi Arabia and marching with Crosses!! The 1st Amendment does NOT give you the right to instigate a riot....like yelling fire in a theater. Go do it in D.C. where laws are actually made.

Thus far it has reminded me more of siblings playing the "I'm not touching you!" game wherein one will put their hand or finger as close to and in as annoying a location as possible to the other without actually making contact, all the while saying "I'm not touching you!", i.e. a clear and painfully obvious manipulation/baiting tactic. If ANTIFA didn't enthusiastically take the bait EVERY... SINGLE... TIME... then the Proud Boys, etc., would get bored and stop offering it.

But that's me quixotically trying to impose logic and reason on to what is purely an emotion-driven situation.

The best thing to do is for the media to ignore political extremists, stop giving them the attention they crave for their respective causes. Do an act of vandalism, of physical violence on another human, you get arrested but worse, you hurt your 'cause'.

One reason the Civil Rights Movement in the USA of the 1950's and 1960's was successful was that those seeking change resisted but didn't use violence in their protests. Instead they let the racists be see as violent jerks.

These potentially violent clashes are costing cities like Portland millions of dollars for police, loss of business, vandalism, health care and sanitation costs, discouraging people from peaceful use of their cities. These 'causes' and reactions are further dividing this country, they are destructive, not constructive.

Wrong. In places where the Klan was prevalent, laws were passed against appearing/demonstrating in public with one's face covered for exactly those reasons.

Petty much the only place the Klan is still active is in the minds of Liberals and is used for Identity baiting.

Misguided and irrelevant in the context of the current environment. The FBI disagrees with you completely:

Individuals adhering to racially motivated violent extremism ideology have been responsible for the most lethal incidents among domestic terrorists in recent years, and the FBI assesses the threat of violence and lethality posed by racially motivated violent extremists will continue.

The Klan is still very much active. Neo Nazis are, too. Both cover their faces.

Let's keep things in perspective. KKK started as a group to keep blacks in their place; subserviant to the whites. Neo Nazis are the Pacific Northwest version and a growing problem thanks to Republicans and the occupant of the White House giving them aid and comfort.

Antifa is the boogeyman for the right. They do not have the weapons and financial connections neo Nazis and KKK have because "antifa" is code for "everyone against white power". If righties and Republicans actually and really wanted to distance themselves from neo Nazis and KKK, they would work with anti fascists to lower violence on their end. But, instead, they scream "TERRORISTS!" whenever anyone marches against white supremacists.

What does the KKK and antifa have in common...both were started by the Democratic Party to keep those that they disagree with and hate silent.

Do you seriously not see the likeness between the KKK using intimidation techniques and Antifa doing the same to keep those that they disagree with silenced? Both groups hide behind a mask to conceal their identity...instead you want to come on here and state that those that are their to exercise their first amendment right peacefully are somehow worse than those that are using violence to shutdown that peaceful protest.

Tell me something, since the NRA was founded to ensure that freed blacks are able to defend oneself...no, you’re full of it with your nonsense. 1st Amendment and 2nd Amendment rights will stand no matter how much the left cries in this country.

Sad to look at the pictures of the rally. People totally divided and filled with hate for each other, a divided country.

All this is about politics and I'm pretty sure the politicians want it this way. A divided population is a population with no say and no power.

The lobby groups equally financially support both parties and there is no difference between them, the Dems pander to the left, the Repubs pander to the right, make them hate each other and become inundated with bullshit meanwhile people are getting more an more taken away from them by the government.

The worst thing about this is that the hate perpetuates itself into becoming worse and worse. I'm terrified to see where this will end up in 5 to 10 years, it's not only happening in the USA of course.

Other than the misleading title, there is nothing in the FBI testimony text referring to KKK or other of the white supremacy groups that are actually on the decline. The last KKK rally I have heard of was in Dayton Ohio and 9 (nine) KKK supporters showed up and were booed by at least 600 people. The only place White Supremacy really lives is in the minds of Liberals.

However, The trump administration is considering designating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization due to the escalating violence against peaceful people exercising their First Amendment rights. The FBI testimony more so applies to the terrorist activities of ANTIFA. Proof of ANTIFA's escalating trend for violence comes from the most recent shooting in Dayton Ohio were the shooter was an ANTIFA sympathizer and supported the left And the fire bombing of an immigration center in Tacoma Washington by an antifascist using Fascist tactics. https://www.adl.org/resources/backgroun ... the-antifa

Agreed. As I have pointed out many times, some folks fervently rail against migrants while apparently not recognizing they are pawns in a larger game where moneyed interests have lobbied both parties for a labor system that serves the sole purpose of holding wages down. Meanwhile those fighting for scraps at the bottom have it out with one another over the issues du jour.

Yes, the KKK was started by the southern white supremacist democrats, who are today's republicans.That means you! So #blessed. Antifa are anarchists, which are neither democrat or republican, and they've killed zero people, unlike the KKK, or Trump's henchmen who have shot up mosques, synagogues, Walmarts...all while hysterically yelling "bUt AntIFa!" like lunatics.

Yah all those latinos at the El Paso Walmart were "instigating" that right winger to shoot them up. :thumbsup:

Notice how Trump didn't tweet against the white supremacists and neo nazis who were literally spelling out their call for violence and murder. Because that's his base, which, if you've forgotten (and I'm sure you willingly have), is behind the vast majority of all extremist murders.

And for the love of god, youtube videos aren't proof of anything, other than you're probably stretching so hard you're going to pull a muscle.

It's always in Portland because it's a strongly liberal city and these Proud Boy shitheels are nothing if not provocateurs.

Sorry, but why is Portland a target again? Every month these right wing racists go to Portland. All arranged from Florida.

I would say the police handled this event well, and hopefully these right wing racists go broke on their cross country flights.

It seems to me their are right wing outfits paying for these folks to go protest to make up a fake political issue over ANTIFA. Funny thing about ANTIFA is that if thier aren't right wing racists marching, they have nothing to counter-protest.

These violent right wing protests were never a problem until the white supremacists decided to attack Portland. Portland had some terrible mayors. Neil Goldschmit and Sam Adams were terrible, IMO. Yet, there were no violent right wing white supremacists making death threats and beating up random people when they were in office.

Oregon has a racist history. Once you leave the Willamette Valley, it is Republican, yes, but parts of the state are very racist. Josephine County, in southern Oregon, was one of the last places in the country to do away with "sundown laws". There are still too many around the state who fly the Confederate flag. There is a movement in southern Oregon called "State Of Jefferson" that is evolving into racism. It had been a good idea when it was first conceived but, now, the same people who fly the flag of traitors and MAGA stickers and guns and all of the typical right wing extremist props are also very much invested in State Of Jefferson.

Long story short, these violent right wing white supremacists will not get any air time if they were to protest anywhere outside the Willamette Valley because they would not find anyone to beat up. They would find support.

In Portland then why was it ONLY those masked Fascist ANTIFA cowards were the only one committing acts of random violence then? And this was after the Proud Boys had already left.

Proof? The police arrested 13 of over 1200 demonstrators. No affiliation associated. Seems relatively peaceful to me.

Because the Portland police were doing their job for a change instead of being told to stand down. The violence happened after the Proud Boys left. https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/08 ... ments.html

And yet right wing racists that were part of the proud boys were involved in both incidents. Thanks for not clearing up any of your fake news.

Because Portland probably has the largest per capita populations of leftist soy boys in the States.


Please define. Are they the hairy dudes in open relationships with several women while running a craft brewery? Because PDX has quite a number of those!


Nah, those guys have jobs. ;) The typical "soy boy" is rail thin, mushroom pale, and has thick hair that is usually long yet they have thin, scraggly, uneven facial hair if they have any facial hair at all. Basically they look like the average fourteen year old boy except they're in their twenties. They're known for joining Leftist and especially radical Feminist causes in the desperate hope of getting laid by one of the "artsy" women because to all other women they're invisible. The term "soy boy" is an implication that their intake of soy products has infused them with an excess of phyto-estrogens, thus suppressing their natural testosterone production and inhibiting their normal development into men.

You must be blind. In both cases ANTIFA initiated the violence. In the first incident, after ANTIFA cowards tried to pull people off of the bus for violent purposes, one of the men on the bus produced a hammer to defend himself.

In the second incident, ANTIFA cowards encircled and attacked a man and his adult daughter and brutally attacked them. Also, none of the victims were proud boys. The ANTIFA initiated violence occurred after the Proud Boys had left. The ONLY people responsible for violence were ANTIFA cowards.

So how does a group of people peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights make them Racist? Your MSM has been lying to you. Lucas can explain to you how the MSM tries to push false narratives as truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tMZEIdyKXk Racism just seems to live on in the twisted minds of the Liberal Left.

Why were racists using buses to get to Portland in the first place? Probably because they don't live there and don't belong.
Do you let people into your house to tear up your stuff ? Or do you challenge them and kick them out?

You push these cowardly racism stories for some reason? You belong to the racist groups?

Just to remind everyone who exactly the Proud boys are that keep instigating these events are.

https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny ... story.html

"A pair of Proud Boys was convicted Monday of roughing up members of an anarchist group that confronted them on the Upper East Side last year.

Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman were found guilty of attempted gang assault, riot and attempted assault after less than two days of deliberations in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Hare and Kinsman were among 10 members of the far-right nationalist organization who were charged in connection to the October 2018 brawl with several members of anti-fascist group Antifa. With the verdict, all but one — who will be tried at a later date — have been convicted. All but three pleaded guilty."
