Antifa supporters strike again, violently attack Christian prayer event including women and children in police-defunded Portland

PORTLAND, OR- Once again, a group of umbrella carrying, black mask-wearing, gutless neanderthal antifa scumbags attacked a group of innocent citizens in the lawless city of Portland, Oregon.

A group of Evangelical Christians was holding a prayer and worship event at the waterfront in downtown Portland when the group of spineless scumbags attacked them without provocation, the Post Millennial reported.

Video recorded at the scene showed children and families fleeing as the black-clad basement dwelling dirtbags tore apart sound equipment while assaulting the innocent victims with pepper spray and projectiles.

In other words, Joe Biden’s “idea” strikes again.

As PJMedia reported, this is probably what it looked like when Nazi brown shirts attacked churches in Nazi Germany.

The outlet reported that antifa organized the attack via Twitter (gee, thought only Parler was responsible for organizing riots) and other social media platforms. They later bragged on Twitter that they had stolen the Christian group’s food and water.

Sources say Portland police arrived at the scene however took no action against the rabble rousers.

Reports said that police stood by as the antifa terrorists pepper-sprayed parents and children, threw flash bombs into the crowd, and threw the group’s sound equipment into the Willamette River. No arrests had been made as of press time.

The Portland Police Bureau of course, as we’ve reported has been defunded by at least $15 million and there has been a significant departure of officers who have either left the department outright, retired, or are out on injury from the over year-long riots that have plagued the city.

As a result of all of this, violent crime, including murders is skyrocketing in the city and is on a record pace for shootings and murders.

The prayer event featured persecuted Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski, who has been arrested and jailed in what has turned into the Marxist country of Canada. Pastor Pawlowski was arrested and jailed for hosting in-person church services in defiance of pandemic restrictions in Calgary. The prayer event drew about fifty people, sources said.

The irony is of course not lost, since the group of antifa Nazis showed up at the prayer event, after Pawlowski had famously referred to health insurance and Canadian police as “brown shirts” and “Nazis.”

The violence in Portland was advocated on Twitter by a clown who calls himself a pastor,  the “Rev. Dr. Chuck Currie,” who advocated for the violence on Twitter albeit indirectly. In a case of amazing irony, Currie accused Pawlowski of being a “provocateur” who was “intent on fostering violence.” Hey, we thought Twitter didn’t allow “hate speech?”

The Portland Tribune reported that it appeared Portland police might be poised to make arrests or at least stop the attack, but in the end stood by and didn’t do anything, the outlet said.

“Dozens of black-clad counter-protesters pushed into the right wing and, hurling smoke grenades and appearing to dismantle part of the public address system, spurring Portland Police Bureau squad cars onto the grass under the mid-day sun. The right-wing group marched to their announced gathering point in response.

“’Antifa had threatened to beat people up and do what they do—and then they showed up and did it,’ an attendee from the right-wing side said. ‘The police were not even far from there and were laughing in their vehicles and doing their thing. It’s probably hard to care as an officer in a place where they take away all your funding.’”

Independent journalist Andy Ngo was able to get some video from the attack and posted to Twitter.

PJ Media reported that the Proud Boys were supposed to have been providing security for the event, but it didn’t appear it was effective if that was in fact true. Other media, including Yahoo News also reported the Proud Boys as being in the area of the event.

According to Portland radio talk show host Lars Larson, police removed the Christians from their initial gathering spot on the waterfront to another place several blocks away, which appeared to have been known to the antifa scum.

One antifa loser said to some of the Christians in attendance, “Where is your God now?”

One female who was with the Christian group was in a panic as she tried to get away from the unhinged mob.

“They threw a flash bomb into a group of kids,” she said speaking to a videographer at the scene while injured were being treated.

The Post Millennial said they reached out to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for comment, but he was evidently attending a rap concert somewhere and couldn’t be reached.

Antifa, along with Black Lives Matter has been running roughshod over Portland for over 14 months. Members of the Portland antifa chapter—Rose City Antifa—along with Black Lives Matter have wreaked havoc on the city. On the occasions when they were arrested, Soros-funded DA Mike Schmidt dropped most of the charges in the name of political “equity.”

Last month, we reported on the Antifa thugs crashing another event. When you have no life, it appears you have a lot of time on your hands to rain on everyone else’s parade. For more on that, we invite you to:

DIG DEEPER

PORTLAND, OR- According to a recent Twitter post from independent journalist Andy Ngo, Antifa accounts are threatening violence against an alleged upcoming Patriotic Event in Portland on August 22nd.

As stated in his tweet, it has yet to be confirmed who is behind the digital flyers for the reported “United We Win” event, but user @dakisback2, made a clear statement after re-sharing a tweet from @potato_bloc on how Antifa plans to show up:

“Far right nationalists are descending upon PDX on August 22nd. You know what do do Portland.”

The original flyer for the “United We Win” event was mimicked by Antifa members who plan to show up at the same place and time and as it states in their flyer, “Bloc Up and Bring PPE,” essentially threatening those at the “United We Win” event that there will be violence.

According to reports, last year, on August 22, 2020, there were dueling demonstrations in downtown Portland between pro-police and pro-Donald Trump supporters, and Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters. 

Reportedly, far-right organizers organized a noon event with the stated goal of “saying no to Marxism,” which drew multiple plans for counter-protests from far left-wing groups. Another event, called the “Mother of All Back the Blue Rallies” launched at the Justice Center, also around noon.

Within 15 minutes of the noon rallying launch, protesters changed “USA, USA, USA” and waved American flags on the steps of the Justice Center. Across the street in the park, others were chanting, “Black Lives Matter.”

By 12:30 p.m. that day, hundreds of people filled the park, streets, and sidewalks representing both sides. Both sides also equally used a variety of weapons and tossed numerous objects at each other. Video snippets on social media showed a handful of protesters from both sides clashing and pushing each other.

Numerous people had shields, wood or metal batons, and some on both sides carried paint ball guns. Reportedly, protesters on both sides thew rocks, water bottles, and shot paint balls.

As of this writing, it is unclear if the alleged upcoming “United We Win” event will be a protest or demonstration, but what is clear is that Antifa refuses to let people peacefully protest and exercise their First Amendment. They plan to be violent and cause destruction in a city that has seen over a year straight of nightly rioting.

In another recent Twitter post, Ngo shared how Antifa in Portland put out an “alert” about Canadian firebrand paster Artur Pawlowski’s planned event in Portland on August 7th. Antifa indicated that they would be there to “shut it down” and will use violence to do so.

A recent article in the Post Millennial proves just how destructive Antifa mob members are. An alleged Antifa member faces federal charges over $164,000 in riot damage.

The accused rioter was caught on surveillance video causing tens of thousands of dollars in damages to federal property at three separate Portland riots.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Aaron Amoss, of Fairview, Oregon, has close ties to Antifa. A masked man, identified as Amoss, was recorded throwing projectiles at the courthouse’s windows in the early hours of March 14th. 

That same week, federal officials began dismantling the heavy duty fencing that was erected last year to protect the building from rioters. Unsurprisingly, Antifa extremists gathered almost immediately to vandalize the courthouse again, forcing officials to put the fencing back up.

Amoss is accused of doing more than $143,000 in property damages that day. The federal criminal complain suggests that Amoss is affiliated with or is a member of Antifa. A senior special agent with the Federal Protective Service, wrote in the affidavit:

“Protest events in Portland are primarily attended by people in ‘black bloc,’ a term used to describe the all black, nondescript clothing. Antifa and other groups have stated that the intent of wearing ‘black bloc’ is to protect members of the group willing to take ‘direct action’ by making it difficult for law enforcement to identify individuals and further anonymizing them.”

Amoss’ social media posts further suggest he is an Antifa member. Reportedly, in a Facebook post at the height of the daily riots in July 2020, he instructed Portland protesters to wear facial coverings to evade identification and potential arrest by federal authorities. He wrote:

“Wear facial coverings everywhere and switch up your routes daily. Do not become predictable.”

Antifa continued their violent rioting and anarchy – but this time LAPD was ready to strike back

July 18th, 2021

LOS ANGELES, CA- Violent rioting continues to take place in several large cities across the country, Los Angeles included, yet the destructive mess Antifa leaves behind seems to left out of the mainstream media reporting.

Antifa continues to deface and destroy property, causing issues around the Wi Spa, where several protesters were recently arrested after a dueling protest over transgender rights at the Los Angeles spa.

On Saturday, July 17th, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) reportedly had enough as they moved in to disperse violent Antifa members. There were protesters and counter-protesters, making the situation more chaotic. 

The protests stemmed from a video that went viral earlier in the month, in which an irate customer complained to the staff at Wi Spa about a transgender woman’s exposed genitalia in the women’s section of the spa.

During the protest, not only were Antifa members attacking other protesters, but they also assaulted officers. On officer was reportedly caught on video using his baton on two Antifa protesters after one pulled down their mask to spit on the officers face.

According to Detective Meghan Aguliar, a spokeswoman for the LAPD, police declared an unlawful assembly in front of the spa in Koreatown around 11 a.m. when demonstrators against transgender access to the spa’s facilities clashed with counter protesters and some in the crowd, mainly Antifa members, threw smoke bombs and other harmful objects at officers.

Several dozen people were arrested for ignoring orders to disperse.

Later, when the rioting settled, police found stun guns, knives, and pepper spray discarded on the street. Aguilar did not have an immediate arrest count, but confirmed that no officer was injured and no protester was transported to any hospital.

The New York Post reported that the dueling demonstrations were spurred by the same video that sparked the violent protests outside the spa on July 3rd. In the video clip, that went viral, the irate woman said:

“He is a man. He is not a female. There are girls down there, other women who are highly offended by what they just saw and you did nothing. You sided with him.”

The spa defended its practices in a statement, by saying:

“Like many other metropolitan areas, Los Angeles contains a transgender population, some of whom enjoy visiting a spa. Wi Spa strives to meet the needs of all its customers.”

Fox News reported that a flyer posted online by the southwest chapter of the Youth Liberation Front, which was described by the Seattle Times as a “persistent militant voice,” encouraged followers to gather at Wi Spa at 10:00 a.m. on July 17th to “SMASH TRANSPHOBIA” and “SMASH FACISM.” The group reportedly tweeted:

“ROUND TWO MOTHER (EXPLETIVE).”

During the dueling protests on July 3rd, videos show bystanders attempting to break up some fighting, but violence erupted on repeated occasions throughout the day.

LAPD officer Mike Lopez, a department spokesman, stated that no arrests had been made during that demonstration, but at least five crimes had been reported against five separate victims. He said in a statement:

“Three of them were victims of assault and batter, and the other two were assault with a deadly weapon.”

Mainstream media continues to ignore Antifa and their violent, destructive ways. Antifa continues to argue that they do not have to remain peaceful, which seems to be true as evidenced by how the radical left keeps dealing with them.

In several large cities across the country, Antifa members continue to destroy businesses and property without any concern or punishment and in many of these Democrat run cities, the court cases keep getting thrown out.
