Skip to comments.Portland Riot: Clash between Patriot Prayer, Antifa members prompts police crackdown
Posted on 07/01/2018 11:20:40 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
A freedom rally in Portland, Ore., coordinated by the right-wing group Patriot Prayer was cut short Saturday after some of its supporters clashed with anti-fascist (antifa) counter-protesters.
The event began without incident until after 6 p.m., when members of Patriot Prayer took to the streets following their gathering in Portland's Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, the Oregonian reported.
Patriot Prayer's organizer is Joey Gibson, a U.S. Senate candidate in Washington state, the newspaper reported, adding that the group is based in Vancouver, Wash., located just across the Columbia River from Portland.
Tensions escalated as the two groups heckled each other, the report said. Antifa members began lobbing eggs, half-empty water bottles, and firecrackers. Others in the crowd lit firecrackers and smoke bombs.
Police eventually declared the gathering a riot, revoked Gibson's permit, and ordered protesters to disperse. Police warned that non-compliance would lead to arrest.

Portland is a leftard cesspool. This sounds like a classic setup. Auntie Fae starts a fight and then the police call it a riot and rounds up the Patriot Prayer-niks and let Auntie Fae’s minions off with a warning.
Those taking part in the legal demonstration for which a permit had been issued, were punished because the cops refused to protect it from the antifa scum who came to commit violence.
At least the patriot prayer group had a permit so they should be oka...... Oh, Portlandia. Never mind.
Your post concisely and eloquently sums up exactly what happened.
Exactly! It’s been used by every corrupt regime ever.
Here’s my question -— WHO HAD THE PERMIT TO MARCH?
Answer: the Patriots
Here’s what I want to find the answer to: Did the Antifa obtain a permit to mount a counter protest?
If not, what they did was illegal. Not only that, the Cops should have been there PROTECTING the party that legally obtained the permit.
If Antifa did obtain a permit, who was the idiot who gave them the permit knowing that the Patriots would be marching in the same area at that time?
Antifa should be declared a terrorist organization.
So who got arrested? Story isnt clear. Given this is Portleftia, I suspect only the people with a legal right to be there got arrested and the Antifa fascist scum got a pass.
It has been by the feds. Apparently Portleftia cops dont care.
It’s always “right wing” and never left wing. The left pretty much has infiltrated most police departments in American third world sh*tholes. Many good cops get fed up and leave so all that is left are those totally unfit to be a police officer and are the errand boys and girls with guns and a badge.
The camera is obviously among the Aunti Fayes. I guess the “news”men feel more comfortable among the masked ones.
Portlandistan is just another leftist sh!thole.
There needs to be a heavy and costly lawfare waged against Portland, it’s city leadership and its union thug (cops) leadership.
Bankrupt the city.
All they need to do is stop people from wearing face masks. This tactic has curtailed Antifa everywhere it was employed.
They know this and they don’t do it. Does anyone in Oregon ask why?
One of those firecrackers or smoke bombs sounded more like an M80.
It’s got to be now “far right” instead of “right wing”...
It won’t be long until it’s “way far right wing” and then “ultra far right wing”....
