    I hope this one is better than the last few with plenty of skull cracking, tear gassing, etc, but I doubt it.

    FBI to assist in Portland as city braces for dueling Antifa, right-wing protests

    Portland, Ore., is gearing up for a set of dueling rallies this weekend that is expected to bring an informal coalition of right-wing groups-- some of which have been decried as white nationalists and white supremacists-- and so-called anti-fascists, who have violently opposed these right-wing demonstrators.

    Portland’s so-called “Antifa” members have issued an online call to followers to turn out to “defend Portland from a far-Right attack.”

    VIOLENT CLASHES IN PORTLAND, ORE., PROMPT CALL FOR ANTI-MASK LAWS

    Portland’s Rose City Antifa, the nation’s oldest active anti-fascist group, said violence against right-wing demonstrators is “exactly what should happen when the far-right attempts to invade our town.”

    Portland leaders are planning a major law enforcement presence on the heels of similar rallies in June and last summer that turned violent, and the recent hate-driven shooting in El Paso, Texas. None of the city’s nearly 1,000 police officers will have the day off, and Portland will get help from the Oregon State Police and the FBI. Mayor Ted Wheeler has said he may ask Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, to call up the Oregon National Guard."

    I haven't watched the whole press conference, just skimmed through bit's and pieces, but I can only imagine that this will just lead up to the left getting worked up even more...

    Interesting that the mayor of Portland claims the city will not allow "violent protests" when right-wing groups choose to organize and demonstrate.

    Yet, when AntiFa blocks intersections, smashes vehicles and storefronts, and bashes in peoples heads with clubs and bike locks, the police stand idly by and allow it to happen because the mayor ordered the Chief of Police to stand down.

    Interesting.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer town.
    I hope it burns to the ground!

    Little known fact- the Walmart open carry activist/troll (in reality a leftist agitator, imo) was originally from Portland

    I really hope all of these idiots, on both sides, have great success in harming each other.

    Did anyone else daydream about one of those face covered cucks with a baton getting shot in the face while reading the article?
