Are you tired of hearing about Portland? I know I am.
If I ever move there, I’m going to pretend to be an antifascist so I don’t have to hang out with any coloreds.
That being said, Andy Ngo – the guy filming the above video – seems pretty based.
I corresponded with FBI today. I asked: “Did the memo accurately attribute this to the FBI when it said: ‘The FBI categorizes the Proud Boys as an extremist group with ties to white nationalism’?” They would not answer yes or no. Something is odd. https://t.co/mGFUH2k0BL

Now that I’ve given a tip of the hat to the based minority of the day, let’s move on to the actual protest.
There isn’t much here that we haven’t seen already from Antifa.
They attack a rally while the police mostly stand by and do nothing.
At the end though, they do swoop in and make some arrests. Of Antifa this time.
Police arrested a 19-year-old Antifa protester Saturday for allegedly punching and spitting on conservative activists taking part in the #HimToo rally in Portland, Oregon.
Authorities arrested left-wing Antifa protester Hannah McClintock on a harassment charge, and arrested five others on other charges, including interfering with a peace officer and disorderly conduct, the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement.
A video of the encounter shot by independent journalist Andy C. Ngo showed McClintock allegedly confronting the male demonstrators attending the rally.
The rally put a spotlight on male victims of sexual abuse and those falsely accused of sexual harassment. Left-wing counter-protesters also showed up to disrupt the rally and harass the attendees of the event.
So that’s cool. She’s probably already released though. Certainly no real charges.
But if you watch the video from the event above, you’ll see that the “right-wing” guys are just being hounded by Antifa brats block after block for until they totally fall back. The organizers desperately try to prevent any of their guys fighting back against Antifa provocations.
It’s pretty sad.
And the whole spectacle raises some questions for me.
Like, why are these right-wingers still holding these events? Getting Antifa to chimp out for the cameras is fun and all, and that seems to be the goal, but what is the point now? Especially if you can’t fight back without being classified as a terrorist and run-up on federal charges?
You look low-energy and weak, and that kind of optics only works if you’ve got a sympathetic media on your side, casting you as martyrs – something which we do not have.
Here’s the formula they are using: the organizers assemble a mystery meat team of desperados who can hold their own in a street fight and then has an event that Antifa crashes, only to get beat up for the knockouts reel on YouTube and a sympathetic story on Breitbart.
With the FBI now investigating the people who participate in these events as right-wing extremists and collaborating with Antifa… you have to ask if this is a good idea anymore.
Time to switch tactics here, guys.
Fighting Antifa with two arms tied behind your back just isn’t going to work going forward.
