2,500 people attended a “Trump cruise rally” outside the city, and then some cars re-routed through downtown Portland where they engaged in conflicts with BLM and Antifa, exchanging pepper spray and projectile volleys. It ended in violence when a man wearing a hat with the Patriot Prayer insignia was shot to death.
Portland Antifa and BLM rioters attacked a truck driver, slashing his tires, breaking the windshield, and even throwing a motorcycle in front of him to make him stop. The mob is harassing him at his home now by breaking his windows and sending death threats. Hollingsworth may face criminal charges for defending himself.
For more than 50 nights, Gabriel Johnson had been kept awake by the sounds of rioting and explosions near his home, so he marched into the chaos with his American flag in hand and was chased by rioters with baseball bats. Johnson blames the destruction of his city on the inaction of local leadership.
The destroyers barricaded the building and tried to set the federal courthouse ablaze with officers inside. Three officers may be permanently blind after being attacked with lasers. Federal forces were brought into Portland after the mercenaries had been instigating riots every night for over 50 days.
Adam Kelly, the man with the red beard, tried to help the older man and was smashed over the head with ‘metal pipes’ and was then sprayed with mace. Kelly received over 25 stitches/staples. Joseph Christian Evans, 34, was identified as one of the Antifa members who allegedly struck Kelly, and he was arrested.
