A well-known ANTIFA activist is dead… and the group refuses to cooperate with police to figure out what happened.
This comes following suspicious circumstances including a crashed car laden with bullet shots northwest city of Portland where community tensions with ANTIFA organizations are prominent.
Police say 23-year-old Sean Kealiher was taken to a local area hospital where he succumbed to injuries resulting from blunt force trauma.
Police believe Kealiher’s death to be a homicide related to the abandoned vehicle found crashed into the Oregon Democrat Party building just minutes from a popular left-wing, ANTIFA hangout known as Cider Riot.
According to the Oregonian, it is believed that the SUV struck Kealiher outside of the Portland cidery and shots were then subsequently fired at the vehicle prior to it crashing into the wall of the Democratic Party building. Friends who brought Kealiher to the hospital following the incident were detained but later released, the Oregonian further reports.
Sean Kealiher is a well-known ANTIFA activist who earned the nickname “13” commemorating the young age at which the man became a fixture at public ANTIFA protests. Over the past decade, Kealiher participated in numerous Portland area ANTIFA riots and was arrested in 2015 for interfering with an officer, OPB reports.
Kealiher’s death triggered an outpouring of commemoration for his activism across social media. However, a video posted by Portland reporter Andy Ngo shows Kealiher shouting obscenities at the journalist and threatening to break the man’s camera equipment.
Ngo described Kealiher as an “antifa militant” and making a pointed contradiction to the many social media comments honoring Kealihr as a “social justice peace maker” as described by Ngo. Ngo further posted footage of Kealiher behaving radically at a pro-Trump student meeting at Portland State University where he was protesting
Sergeant Kevin Allen affirmed the Portland Police Bureau’s commitment to bringing Kealiher’s bizarre death to justice. He declared “Detectives will examine evidence we have now, talking to witnesses, seeking witnesses, and trying to get more information from them, not only about what happened at the scene of the crime, but what led up to it,” according to KATU2.
The Oregon Democratic Party took to Twitter to urge cooperation in the investigation and acknowledge the young man’s death saying:
“We are deeply saddened to learn of the homicide that took place outside our building yesterday. While the location of this tragedy may have been unintentional, we encourage anyone with any information to share it with the appropriate authorities.”
However, the Pacific Northwest Antifascist Workers Collective (known as PNWAWC) is encouraging its members to resist assisting in the investigation despite Kealiher’s standing as one of their own.
The group implored its followers on social media not to assist police saying:
“Don’t let the press platform off this and don’t help the pigs build cases. Consider not telling stories on public fb pages/organizing pages (keep it in the community).”
Rose City ANTIFA, a prominent group in the movement, also took to Twitter saying:
“We also want to remind our community that the police and state are unreliable in times of crisis, both in their responses and information they share.”
At this time, police have not made any arrests in the homicide but believe there are witnesses who have not come forward.
Did you know that Law Enforcement Today has a private new home for those who support emergency responders and veterans? It’s called LET Unity, and it’s where we share the untold stories of those patriotic Americans. Every penny gets reinvested into giving these heroes a voice. Check it out today.
In the meantime, did you realize that there are professors teaching our kids who are openly members of Antifa?
Do you ever wonder what’s going on inside America’s classrooms? If you look past the common core math curriculum and liberal arts projects… there’s something much darker.
And it’s being engrained into the minds of the very kids we send off to school each day. We do our best to raise our children right. Instill good values in them about right and wrong, about dignity and respect.
But what if we told you that the future leaders of our country were being spoon-fed anti-police rhetoric on a daily basis?
And that even though a number of these “professors” were exposed for skipping facts and critical thinking in favor of touting a narrative, they still were allowed to keep their jobs?
Let’s look at a few examples.
First and foremost, we have Jeff Klinzman, a Kirkwood College adjunct English professor who just went on record to confirm that he is Antifa.
For those who are unfamiliar with Antifa, let’s get you up to speed. Antifa is a group of people who claim to be anti-violence while deploying violence.
They claim to support freedom of speech while violently shutting down the speech of those with whom they disagree. These individuals will agitate and instigate in hopes of throwing punches, swinging bats, hammers and crowbars.
The FBI has monitored the group and President Trump is considering designating it as a domestic terrorist organization.
Klinzman, told a local TV station’s investigative team, “I affirm that I am ‘antifa.’”
A tweet from President Trump called the group, “Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting… people over the heads with baseball bats”. The professor wrote in response, “Yeah, I know who I’d clock with a bat…”
The Secret Service says that they are aware of the posts but would not confirm if they are investigating it as a threat to the President.
A search through Klinzman’s Facebook page shows over the years that he has also made statements expressing his desire to “stop evangelical Christians” where he included a poem that said:
“Kill them all and bury them deep in the ground”.
Wonder what he’s teaching in school…
A look at Rate My Professor may actually answer that question.
“Way too opinionated and grades fluctuate based on your ideology. Very little consistency, and he’s often having to struggle to regain his composure after being challenged. He will not admit he made an error and will punish you for showing him it. Most of the assignment topics were taken from other college website curriculum.”
“Whatever you do, don’t interrupt him when he’s telling stories about his glory days of protesting, and how much of a rebel he thinks he still is. He’s mean, he’s a bigot, and he’s sexist as heck. He treats the female students who aren’t hairy-pitted feminists like they are garbage. He’s arrogant and condescending. Just really a bad instructor.”
Then we have now former professor Michael Isaacson.
You might remember him from his statements about how it’s a “pleasure to teach future dead cops.”
Until this week, Isaacson had taught at John Jay College in New York.
Now he’s found himself back in the unemployment line.
Let’s look at some of the lovely qualities of a man shaping the future minds of America.
how come when a pig dies in uniform no one ever says ‘they died doing what they loved?’

When did academia become a protected class of people that can say whatever they want and continue to indoctrinate impressionable children and young adults with anti-country, anti-police and anti-God ideology, and there are no legitimate repercussions for their actions?

His most notorious…
“Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teacher at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”
We’re glad to see John Jay College finally took it upon themselves to get rid of him.
Then you’ve got another California university who felt the need to apologize and offer counseling to student’s they triggered after career services emailed them about job opportunities with CBP.
Apparently Border Patrol was too sensitive a topic… so the university quickly freaked out and threw law enforcement under the bus, apologizing and offering counseling services to any affected students.
“The Career Center sincerely apologizes for the email sent to students on Monday, August 5, 2019, regarding the employment webinars offered by the U.S. Border Patrol. We recognize that some recipients experienced distress due to the contents of the message, and we acknowledge the validity of your concerns. Please know that the Career Center is committed to informing students about employment opportunities while also considering the safety and well-being of all members of the campus community.
Give us a break…
Or how about the University of California professor who said that cops “need to be killed.”
Professor Joshua Clover is known for his unbelievable statements. But arguably the worst was in 2015 to SF Weekly in an interview.
He was asked:
“What’s wrong with society today?”
His two-sentence response in the published interview:
“People think that cops need to be reformed. They need to be killed.”
Other media reports quoted Clover stating on Twitter he was was “thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore.”
Then there was his tweet that reportedly said:
“I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?”
Clover’s interests include “social movements, social reproduction theory, crisis theory and the end of capitalism.”
In 2016, he published a book called “Riot. Strike. Riot: The New Era of Uprisings”.
Of course it’s the college environment we’re talking about… and so nobody batted an eye.
Sherry Graham-Potter’s husband was killed in the line of duty. When she saw what Clover was spewing to young minds across the country, she couldn’t stay silent.
We leave you with her letter to Professor Clover.
An open letter to Joshua Clover, Professor of English, UC Davis:
I don’t know you, and truthfully, if today you were to draw your last breath, as a Christian woman, I would struggle greatly with my duty to pray for your soul.
There are moments that I cannot conceive of a heart so black and ugly that you would call for a person’s life to be snuffed out, merely because they chose a career path with which you disagree.
You are a gutless coward as far as I am concerned, not worthy of licking clean the boots of my late husband killed while protecting his community, nor my new husband, twenty-six years into his law enforcement career, where he has served with honor, integrity and character. Not one of those attributes will you EVER have the privilege of claiming in your lifetime.
Here are a few of the words you were giddy to share after the Michael Brown attack on Police Officer Darren Wilson and his justified response. Although these tweets occurred in 2014, they were recently brought to light after the shooting ambush of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona:
“I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others too, too many of old age”
“I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?”
How many lives have you saved, sir?
How many sobbing, crumbling mothers have you clung to after informing them that their child is no longer of this earth?
How many burning buildings have you run into to save a family pet?
How many lifeless bodies have you breathed into?
How many suicide aftermaths have you witnessed?
How many times have you been spit at?
Confronted with a knife?
Kicked, punched, elbowed, head butted?
How many people have threatened to rape and kill your wife and children after you arrested them?
How many times has your marked vehicle been vandalized in your driveway?
How many times have you been concerned that the food you’ve just been served might be contaminated?
How many people have shot at you?
How many times have you called your spouse to tell them you won’t be home for a while, because you just shot and killed that person who was shooting at you?
How much blood, vomit, urine and feces must you remove from your clothing after work?
How many times are you demonized in the press?
How many co-workers have you seen die?
How many flag draped caskets have you carried?
How many children have you knelt in front of to present a folded flag?
How many doctors have told you that the stress of the job you do will most likely kill you fifteen years sooner than the average civilian?
How many times have the things you’ve witnessed led you to consider putting your own duty weapon in your mouth and pulling the trigger?
How many times have you considered that it’s people like you, and the appalling rhetoric you spew, that drive good men and women to even consider removing themselves from this earth?
How many times have you sat in front of an unsuspecting woman’s home, gathering the courage to inform her that her husband has been killed in the line of duty?
How many times have you been intellectually honest with yourself and considered what your life would look like without these men and women and their willingness to stand between you and the evil in this world?
I am not naïve, and I recognize and acknowledge there are people on the job that shouldn’t be. That become drunk on power, that fall to temptation, that lose their way. However, we are all human, we have failings, we are corruptible, we are flawed, selfish and greedy at times. I’m certain you see that in your own line of work. However, I challenge you to find a less corruptible group of individuals than those who walk the Thin Blue Line.
Sir, I want to hate you. I hate what you stand for, I hate that you are in a position to influence young and developing minds. I hate that you have sycophants who eat up your shameful, vile and dangerous rantings.
But I don’t hate you. No, I pity you.
I pity whatever caused your tainted worldview and your twisted logic. I pray you never have need for law enforcement to intervene on your behalf.
However, if the day arrives that they must, I am certain of one thing. They will.
Regardless of your disdain for them, they will. Because THAT is who they are.

We as a country need to understand the threat of the war against police and what outcome it may have on our future. And we won’t sit back and allow these people to ‘educate’ our kids unchallenged.
