Portland has been the official refuge of Antifa. They can do what they want and pretty much get away with it. Last weekend they were even interrupting and re-directing traffic with, if not the blessing, at least with the inexcusable complicity of the Powers-That-Be.
Last night, the other side got tired and decided to play by the same rules. I think Antifa looked surprised and a dash bloodied.
Not seen in this video, Antifa initiating the attack by Pepper spraying Patriot March who returned and amplified the favor. But lo and behold! Suddenly when Antifa is getting its collective ass kicked, cops show up.
I was giving Portland PD the benefit of the doubt for not doing their jobs last weekend, but sorry, this no longer applies.
Will Civil War 2.0 will have its Bull Run/Manassas in Portland?

I’ll leave it to future historians to decide on the starting event. But, that said…
My guess, we’ll reach a general threshold where first conservatives, and then more middle-of-the-road folks, are just sick enough of getting crap heaped on them and push back. So, no single spark from which it spreads, but rather more like a diesel: volumetric ignition.
Right now, you have extremists on both sides who are doing the fighting. Each time a police department joins on the side one set or the other, the situation escalates. Sooner or later, middle Americans will be drawn in. Once that happens, CW2 will be far bloodier than the last one.
Areas that have been disarmed by law (like Portland and most of the northeast) will be forced to do whatever the cops tell them to. The midwest, the south, and many other areas where the public remains armed, will likely be the scenes of a lot of the violence.
Sorry to be “that guy” but most of the northeast is awash in firearms, with the liberal cities like NYC and urban parts of NJ being the exception.
And those areas are armed, too.
You really think Portland is completely disarmed?
In comparison to the more freedom loving areas? Yes.
I am LOCKED & Loaded for anything they try to throw at me…. I will walk away, free, and unscathed… they will be totally annihilated….
Portland may be more armed than they think. While open carry is prohibited in Portland, and several other cities in the area, Oregon CCW permits are easy to obtain. While the people living there may be less inclined to have guns there are no legal obstacles.
Personally I’m happy that I moved out in 2016 and have a mountain range between me and the crazy.
