Weapons seized at Portland right-wing rally, counterprotests

18 Août, 2019, 01:59 | Auteur: Christine Menetries
  • A road-closure sign is seen in downtown Portland in advance of a rally as the city prepares for crowds. In the past week authorities in Portland have arrested a half-dozen members of right-wing groups on charges related to violence at previous politica

'We receive criticism no matter what.

Gibson told conservative talk show host Lars Larson Thursday he believes he was unjustly targeted by the Multnomah district attorney in the lead up to anticipated demonstrations in downtown Portland on Saturday, which are expected to attract far-right figures from across the country.

The latest skirmishes took place in the city during a rally in June as the Rose City Antifa faced off against the Proud Boys.

In addition to the Proud Boys, the white nationalist American Guard and the Three Percenters, a far-right militia, have all said they will have members in Portland. The down point of the scuffles was Antifa (from Anti-Fascist) attacking journalist Andy Ngo, who was beaten up, doused with milkshakes -which reportedly contained quick-drying cement- and deprived of his equipment. Portland Police said all of the city's 1,000 officers would be on duty for the gathering that was hyped on social media and elsewhere for weeks.

Buchal said the criminal proceedings against Gibson "are part and parcel of the dishonest campaign by Portland leaders to blame out-of-town demonstrators for violence that began and persists because Antifa wants to shut down any right-wing demonstrations in Portland".

Gibson's lawyer, James Buchal, said none of the multiple videos from the Cider Riot altercation shows Gibson being violent.

Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). "He talked about Portland, said he's watching Antifa".

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana introduced a congressional resolution calling for anti-fascists to be declared domestic terrorists, and Trump echoed that theme in a tweet last month.

Cincinnati Masters: Murray v Murray - who won?
While his doubles and mixed doubles campaigns at Wimbledon did not end as he would have hoped, the US Open seemed the ideal opportunity for him to have another tilt at Grand Slam glory at an event he loves.

And he indicated that naming antifa "an organisation of terror" was being considered.

As Portland prepared for what may be one of the biggest political demonstrations of the USA summer, which authorities expected would lead to violence, Donald Trump threw into the mix a characteristically explosive tweet. 'It seems like some people are keeping score and that's not what it's about on the law enforcement side.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said the message to protestors on both sides is "We don't want your hatred, we don't want your violence, but if you come here, we're going to be prepared", he said in an interview on Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime" on Friday. "Stop using our attractive city and our home to spread fear and disrupt our lives".

Police officials say they are still working on operational plans.

After a knife attack on a Portland train in May 2017, conflict between the groups intensified, she said.

"I think it's a shame", Gibson said during the radio broadcast.

Since then, Portland seems to be one of few cities to see these kind of regular battles that bring planned violence to city streets.
