The mood is tense in Portland, Oregon this week, as a peaceful gathering meant to spread compassion and love is being threatened by the left’s black-shirted storm troopers.
I’m speaking of Antifa, of course; The hypocritically named left wing group that was designated as a terror organization by the state of New Jersey just months ago. The only thing humorous about Antifa is the idea that they stand for “anti-fascist” beliefs. In reality, the group wants nothing to do with diversity of thought, and would much rather see a leftist, authoritarian regime installed that will finally enforce their faulty view of the First Amendment and possibly remove the Second entirely.
These progressive goons have been making trouble from coast to coast in the Trump era, and now, it appears as though it is Portland’s turn to suffer.
Antifa groups declared they were prepared to fight Patriot Prayer protesters in Portland, Oregon, with “militant resistance,” even though local police advised demonstrators to leave weapons at home in what is expected to be a violent showdown between the groups on Saturday.
“History has shown that militant resistance is a necessary and important tool in the fight against fascism,” the Resist Patriot Prayer: Violent Alt-Right Bigots Off Our Streets Facebook event page said. “We make no apologies for the use of force in keeping our communities safe from the scourge of right-wing violence.”
Patriot Prayer has been targeted before, and they aren’t afraid to recognize what they are up against.
“It was a tough battle, but we stood our ground and risked or sustained arrest and injury to do what is right,” the event page said, referring to the June 30 rally. “We may not be muscle bound gym rats, we certainly aren’t the sort of sadistic bullies we are facing, but never the less we have to go out there and be the ones willing to physically protect people already under attack in our communities.”
Now, the only question remains; will the left keep their cool long enough for Americans to gather in peace, or have Antifa and their millennial miscreants fallen for the “New Civil War” schtick being pimped by the mainstream media?
