What the media and politicians painted as “violent right wing white supremacists chomping at the bit to engage in violence” turned into yet another left wing antifa riot-like scene, as the Proud Boys and other Trump supporters proved, as usual, to be peaceful and law abiding while the far left protesters came unhinged and once again terrorized Portland.

It was brilliantly played by former Infowars contributor Joe Biggs and Enrique Tarrio, head of the Proud Boys, who organized the “End Domestic Terrorism” protest. They had their peaceful protest that lasted for about an hour and a half, then they left. Antifa and other far left activists were left in the park, full of weeks of pent up rage, and they needed someone and something to take it out on. Unfortunately for the bystanders of Portland, they were once again subjected to the chaos from the left.

Violent antifa agitators targeted a young girl, used hammer and rocks to attack patriots who were getting on their bus to leave, assaulted bystanders with batons and threatened them skateboards, and stomped on one guy unconscious on the ground. This is in addition to the numerous instances of what appears to be some form of Disorderly Conduct as protesters sparred with police.

Police confiscated various weapons, such as sticks, shields, and bear mace. The Oregonian is reporting that at least 13 people were arrested:

“Portland police made arrests around town — at least 13 — as people posted video of the confrontations, including black-clad protesters breaking the windows out of a bus that was said to carry Proud Boys supporters. One person arrested on the east side was bleeding from the head.

Elsewhere, a large group of left-wing protesters encircled a man and what appeared to be a young woman in American-flag garb, taunting, threatening and chasing them.

Police, who counted about 1,200 demonstrators, said they were scrambling to continue to try to keep the opposing groups apart. They also reported four injuries, all minor, including a person officers found hurt and sent to a hospital.

At 3:30 p.m., with the clashes abating, a group of left-wing protesters gathered at Pioneer Courthouse Square and streets near it, where they continued to march and chant, blocking streets and prompting the civil disturbance declaration from police.

Later in the afternoon, police made more arrests, then pulled out of the area, leaving a mostly quiet crowd that by 5:30 p.m. had dwindled to about 100 people. By 6 p.m., few people remained.

With their head in the sand (or up somewhere else), the “media” is framing it as if those arrested came from both sides of the dueling protest. It appears as though the media is doing everything possible to cover up the fact that all of the arrests were far left activists, and that the right wing side was peaceful throughout.
