Antifa doxes, threatens to murder Portland mayor: “Blood is already on your hands, Ted. The next time, it may just be your own.”

PORTLAND, OR– According to reports, Portland’s resident terrorists, Antifa, have allegedly posted a threatening video cautioning the Mayor, Ted Wheeler to resign or next time blood is “spilled” it may be “his own.”

In the video, there was a screenshot of the mayor’s registered home address that seemingly has been confirmed by voting records. The video is more than an escalation, it is a threat against a sitting politician. 

The reports of the video come shortly after Wheeler issued a plea for the community to assist in “unmasking” rioters and members of Antifa. In the video, a masked person threatens the Democrat mayor. The person concluded by saying:

“Ted, we are asking for the last time that you resign. If you ignore this message outright, the destruction to your precious way of life is going to escalate. Blood is already on your hands, Ted. The next time, it may just be your own.”

The Oregonian reported that police are now investigating the video. Jim Middaugh, a spokesman for the mayor, said that he and his office learned of the video on Wednesday evening, April 28th. 

Middaugh added that the city’s police bureau also notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The news outlet reported:

“Middaugh said the mayor’s office has seen a dramatic uptick in messages following the press conference, most of them critical of Wheeler and the remarks he made. Some claimed the mayor’s comments would encourage right-wing vigilantism while others said the hardline approach was too-little, too-late.”

Reportedly, Wheeler’s comments rattled some civil rights groups as well. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Oregon condemned Wheeler’s request in a statement:

“His comments are inappropriate, irresponsible, and dangerous. After more than four years as police commissioner, Ted Wheeler must finally recognize the role that unchecked police violence has in escalating tension in Portland.”

Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, Wheeler’s colleague on the Portland City Council and a longtime police critic, said the mayor’s comments had “escalated community tensions” during a week that also saw former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin found guilty of murdering George Floyd. Hardesty said in a statement:

“Last summer’s mass protests called for a transformation of our systems of community safety and criminal justice. This moment in history is not calling for increased punitive action.”

In the beginning of April, Fox News reported that Antifa members lit a fire outside of the police union headquarters amid ongoing unrests between law enforcement and anti-police protesters. 

Police said that some 40 people gathered outside the Portland Police Association (PPA) headquarters and lit wood debris on fire. In photos that were shared on social media, the words “Nazis work here” can be seen scrawled on the side of the building. 

That night, Portland police said some people were periodically blocking traffic on North Lombard St. near North Campbell Ave, but no arrests were made and no injuries were reported.

Back in January, the day after a New Year’s Eve riot broke out in downtown Portland, Wheeler very unapologetically laid out the “who, what, when, where, and why” of the riot. He said:

“The who: violent antifa and anarchists. Why? This is the hardest question to answer. Why would a group of largely white, young, and some middle age men destroy the livelihood of others who are struggling to get by?”

After nearly a year of nightly riots, Portland Mayor finally calls (begs?) for ‘unmasking’ of violent protesters

April 26th, 2021

PORTLAND, OR– According to reports, Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists spoke out against Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and his call to “unmask” violent protesters. Hours after the mayor’s comments, another riot broke out in the city.

On Friday, April 23rd, Mayor Wheeler said in a statement:

“We must stand together as a community against this ongoing criminal intimidation and violence. Our job is to unmask them, arrest them, and prosecute them. People know who these criminals are.”

Within hours of the mayor’s statements, violence broke out again in Portland following a social media post calling for demonstrators to “Bloc Up.” According to reports, “Bloc Up” is a reference to the Antifa “uniform” of all black clothing, masks, and helmets. 

The social media post called for an “Autonomous Demonstration” at Couch Park in Portland and to “Bloc Up,” making it difficult for police to identify lawbreakers.

Authorities said that as demonstrators began blocking roadways, smashing windows, painting graffiti and forcing their way into a least one occupied restaurant, police declared the incident to be a riot and ordered protesters to leave. 

During Wheeler’s remarks, he extended the city’s state of emergency and directed Police Police Bureau officials to “arrest people engaged in any crimes.” He reportedly supported the police tactics of “kettling,” which refers to boxing people in. 

Wheeler and the acting police chief both urged the public to safely stand up to the black bloc violent demonstrators who continue to plan “direct actions” around the city that routinely end with shattered windows, fires, and other vandalism. 

Both stated that they believe residents are fed up with watching the threats and destruction by a small group of “self-described anarchists.” Wheeler said:

“They want to burn. They want to bash, like they did to the nonprofit Boys and Girls club in Northeast. Really they want to intimidate. They want to assault.”

He added:

“If BLM leaders can show the courage to stand up to this mob, then we all should. Make a stand and take our city back.”

According to reports, following the riot on Friday, April 23rd, one of many this month alone, Black Lives Matter activists and other “protesters and community leaders” marched on city hall to protest the mayor’s call for action.

Amber Boydston, a speaker at the protest on Saturday, April 24th, was one of dozens of black Oregonians who drafted an open letter aimed at those participating in demonstrations. The letter said, in part:

“Actions that neither increase solidarity nor broadcast purpose while making the lives of local black communities more difficult are not acceptable.”

The letter also talked about concern with police violence, but the group alleges the mayor misused those words in his call to extend the state of emergency. Protest Mac Smiff added:

“I would appreciate it if people would listen to the words that we say and read the words that we say, absorb the words that we say, think on the words that we say, but stop adding your own lends to it. Sometimes you have to be quiet and listen.”

On Monday night, April 19th, a group of about 80 people gathered in Northeast Portland and some smashed windows at the Blazers Boys & Girls Club, causing nearly $20,000 in damage to the club.

On Friday, April 16th, a large demonstration downtown erupted into a riot that left the front windows of the First Christian Church broke, anti-police messages scrawled on the exterior of the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, and windows smashed at the Oregon Historical Society.

The extended state of emergency gives the mayor the power to set a curfew, blockade streets, or call in extra officers from the Oregon State Police, and Oregon National Guard, if deemed necessary.

Portland Antifa declares “BLM squad are not welcome” at planned cop-free autonomous zone

April 18th, 2021

The following contains editorial content written by a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

PORTLAND, OR – It looks as though Antifa cells in Portland no longer want to have BLM protesters among them, as evidenced by one of the most prominent Portland-based Antifa Twitter accounts that spreads calls to action regarding where to engage in protests, riots, and the ilk.

The account on Twitter in question is @RisingPDX – also known as “Revolution Rising” on the platform. In perhaps one of the most delicious instances of irony, this account on Twitter which has over 4000 followers, notes that it was:

“[S]tarted on [M]ay 27 2020 as a way to boost out that PDX was showing up for justice for George Floyd. Black Lives Matter, Fuck 12.”

So, the inception of this Twitter account openly acknowledges that it was created directly in response to the BLM movement and the death of George Floyd.

But apparently, the individual or individuals that run the Revolution Rising Twitter account don’t want Black Lives Matter at an occupation that was being planned to take place at Lents Park in Portland.

The first call to action came on April 16th from the Revolution Rising account, which read as follows:

“COMRADES ARE CALLING FOR A VIGIL AND TEMPORARY OCCUPATION OF LENTS PARK. Meet at 9pm tonight, bring tents, candles, food, drinks, and other supplies.”

This “occupation” that was being planned, which an occupation enacted by Antifa cells and groups are typically akin to autonomous zones, clarified that it was in response to a recent officer-involved shooting in Portland and that there was “no room” for people trying to maintain peace in the area:

“We plan on occupying until:

  • PPB is charged for the murder they committed today.
  • PPB is defunded by AT LEAST 50% (abolition would be preferable).
  • And Lents Park is renamed by the indigenous people’s of the land we live on.”

“At this occupation there is no room for peace police, swoopers, security teams, authoritarian decision making, streamers, etc.. Embrace the principles of anarchism and anti authoritarianism.”

The initial definitions of certain individuals this Antifa cell wanted barred from participating or engaging in this occupation was vague.

Luckily, Revolution Rising was kind enough to provide a broader definition as to what was intended to be conveyed regarding certain individuals they do not want at their occupation:

“TO BE CLEAR Black unity and BLM squad are not welcome at the occupation cause all they do is bring megaphones to exploit Portlands white guilt and swoop shit, a black comrade called for this shit and they got no tolerance for swooper liberal fucks.”

“If you see a swooper it’s on sight.”

This is amazing.

Not only is this Antifa group justifying the proclamation that BLM isn’t allowed at their occupation because a black person they know “called for this shit,” but they are also advocating to attack members of BLM that show up with their calling of “If you see a swooper it’s on sight.”

For those curious as to what a “swooper” is in the context it’s being used by the Revolution Rising account, it’s essentially a person thought to be ‘swooping’ in on an opportunity to either take control of it or exploit it for their personal gain or agenda.

You know, kind of like how Antifa groups literally did to BLM throughout all of 2020.

This. Is. Uh-Mazin’!

Also, the term “on sight” in the context it is being used is a colloquial predominantly used in gang and prison culture where members of groups or gangs are given a proverbial green light to attack either an individual or a group of people.

It gets even better, because this Revolution Rising account continued putting out tweets denigrating black people that don’t fall in line with what these Antifa cells want:  

“One black person will tell y’all do do some counter insurgency shit and y’all blindly follow cause they look like a “leader” while yelling over black femmes who are telling you to stop. Get over your white guilt portland, fuck shit up and don’t listen to the plants.”

If you are looking for peak hypocrisy, look no further then another tweet put out by Revolution Rising that was once again justifying the non-allowance of BLM at their occupation:

“Saying ‘this is what black folks want’ after a single black person told you to do something is literally racist, black folks aren’t a monolith, there’s a thing called CONSENSUS.”

Folks in the comments section were quick to point out that mere hours earlier the Revolution Rising Twitter account justified disallowing BLM because a single black person they knew allegedly called for it.

But alas, the icing on this cake comes in the form of Revolution Rising actually broadcasting the words “Fuck Black Unity and BLM”:

“Fuck Black Unity and BLM Squad and your dumbass counter insurgency tactics. THERE ARE NO LEADERS HERE… megaphone=/= leader.”

It’s almost as if Antifa doesn’t really care about black people as a whole, these groups only like black people if they are anarchists just like them.

And now they are telling their fellow “comrades” to make sure that BLM groups don’t come in close proximity to their often felonious occupations and protests, for fear of BLM acting as “swoopers” and effectively hijacking whatever criminal activity they’re engaged in.  

Portland Antifa cells, which hijacked the BLM movement and messaging in 2020, are worried about the movement they hijacked getting basically hijacked back by other BLM groups.

Remember, Portland-based Antifa groups spent the summer of 2020 and beyond mirroring slogans and chants popularized by BLM.

Antifa cells would march around Portland chanting “say their name”, “black lives matter”, “white silence is violence”, and generally reciting the names of black suspects or individuals that were killed by police under contentious circumstances.

Oh, how fate loves irony.

And according to a recent tweet from Andy Ngo, this clashing between BLM and Antifa is playing out in other areas such as Minnesota. Andy Ngo shared screenshots from tweets coming from Star Tribune contributor Liz Sawyer that provided context to what’s playing out in Minnesota:

“Mood is shifting here. Black freedom fighters trying to prevent white agitators from climbing on barricades and shaking the fences. Agitators are accusing black community members and freedom fighters of being paid by the city to protect barricades and police property.”

This once seemingly prominent camaraderie between anarchist Antifa groups and BLM is starting to unravel at the seams – and it all seems to stem from BLM groups and black community members in various areas getting sick and tired of these anarchists tearing up cities.
