Fascist White Supremacist Rally in Portland Thwarted

Postby Eternal Lotharia » Sun Aug 18, 2019 12:25 pm

Sauce

A rally of far-right groups was met by a large counterdemonstration in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday.

Fears that the showdown would turn violent prompted some downtown businesses to close and led to a massive police presence. At least 13 people were arrested, according to Lt. Tina Jones of the Portland Police Bureau.

Six people, including one who was hospitalized, reported minor injuries during the day, police Chief Danielle Outlaw said at news conference.

There were also six "use-of-force" events by officers, she said, mostly involving "take-downs" of suspects, and no one was injured.

The dueling demonstrations garnered national attention, including from President Donald Trump, who tweeted earlier Saturday in reference to self-described anti-fascists, some of whom are known collectively as antifa, “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”


Portland police tweeted about 30 minutes after the protests started at 11 a.m. that officers were there to protect people's right to speak freely.

“PPB and our partners are here to protect everyone's safety while facilitating everyone's 1st Amendment right to gather and speak. It is the foundation of our democracy and critical to Portland's identity,” police tweeted.

Officers worked to keep the opposing groups apart and nearly an hour after the demonstrations began police said they had seized weapons from participants including bear spray, shields, and poles.



This is sickening, that Trump didn't comment on the White Supremacists he emboldened as they are big fans of him but instead focused on Antifa, shows who he cares about, the piece of shit he is. He needs to be impeached for the bloodshed he threatened to spill in my city.
Since when is racism populism?

These "protesters" are just white-supremacist terrorists, though legally gangs, and should be treated as such. I am sick of this violent behavior, as a city council candidate I am in increased danger purely for my skin color. This is not ok! This is not normal!
We should be able to live in our state, city, and country without fear of murder due to our skin color not being the dominant one!

We need a new, civic, activist populism. We need a populism of compassion, and tolerance. I not only ask NSG to comment, but to create a thread somewhere for a new, NS-originated group dedicated to stopping this madness(The thread is not going to be the main means, it's just a way to get ns'ers together without creating a discord server which would be a mess).
I am done watching, and I'm doing my part to fight.

But it's time for all of us now to fight, across the country.

Together.

I really do not support racism of any kind, but I believe in freedom of expression, so while they do not hurt anyone, I think that they should be able to explain their reasons and their way of beeing.

Don't we already have an Antifa thread?

Also Rose City Antifa should be declared a terrorist organization.

Excuse me for being terrified to live in my city after mexicans were threatened(look it up) by them, and thus it was unsafe to go downtown.

I'm already doing my part, I'm just asking NS'ers to stop whining and talk and instead agree to work together to stop what we should all see as a epidemic. Even if it's something small, it'll be worth it.

I'm sorry if you don't give a fuck, because guess how much I care that you won't get involved: Zero fucks.

Now go away if you aren't adding to the conversation in any meaningful manner, else you're just taking up space.

This isn't about Antifa. It's about a White Supremacist Rally that was thwarted by Police. One many people feared would be the most dangerous of the year.

I wonder why far right militias insist on holding armed rallies in Portland, after facing violence from locals every single time in the past.

It's almost like they want to provoke the violence because it's good propaganda for them. They get to play the martyrs if they get hit, and play the badasses if they land a few of their own.

Trump is basically a parrot. An idea is started in right-wing social media circles like "antifa" are terrorists", it's picked up by Fox News and repeated over and over, and Trump learns how to squawk.

It would also be topical for me to mention two things that seem to keep going in one ear and right out the other:

1) Antifa is not an organization. Antifa has no leader, no membership roster, no headquarters. Antifa is a banner claimed by anyone who opposes fascism. Most groups are a dozen or so people who have no contact with other groups. Antifascists have never committed acts of terrorism, but even if one group did, the rest of the antifascists in the world would bear no responsibility for it.

2) The Proud Boys are nazi thugs. And even Trump is smart enough to not openly praise them, but by neglecting to even mention them, Trump is dog whistling his full approval.

I am acquainted with state politicians, it's not as simple as you believe. It is the Mayor's fault though-He's been a huge disappointment and I'm hoping our stars, Joann Hardesty, or Chloe Eudaly, or Amanda Fritz challenges him in 2020-Amanda Fritz is retiring from City Council in the seat I'm running for.

The Police department actually is at fault for many of these things and has been called out, but has continued being ineffective.

If they arent able to ban the whole shitshow they should impose such heavy restrictions on it that the fun for all involved parties gets ruined to begin with, until it finally fades off.

There was an attempt at an actual sequel to Charlottesville, a second Unite The Right rally. As I recall there was a few dozen of The Right and several hundred protesters.

I firmly oppose martial law, as do the majority of the populace, for this.

Most of the politicians and activists have an alternative plan for this, and I plan to use my position in the party to fight against Martial Law every chance I get, to preserve our city's proud Freedom.
