Antifa Caught On Camera Again: Threatening, Throwing Hammers, Attacking Journalists

On Saturday the ‘Proud Boys’ and other far right, alt-right, and white supremacist groups staged a demonstration in Portland, Oregon in protest of violent, extremist far left group Antifa, who showed up in counter-protest. It was an obvious recipe for disaster for the city once again.

An extremely heavy police and National Guard presence kept the incidents of outright mayhem to a minimum as compared to past weeks, but considering these are the streets of an American city in 2019 that’s not a huge brag for the city.

Altercations and confrontations took place throughout the day, mostly caught on camera and shared on social media as the number of people filming and taking photos almost outnumbered the people who weren’t.

One journalist, Julio Rosas of the Washington Examiner and formerly of Mediaite, was there with a camera and an American flag on his shirt, and that was enough to provoke angry threats and even being surrounding menacingly by members of Antifa.

In fact, generally speaking, the Antifa folks weren’t too keen on American flags at all.

There were a lot of tense moments.

There were, in fact, neo-Nazi and skinhead groups among the demonstrators.

But it was later in the events of the day when some real violence, especially as the Proud Boys and other groups were departing by bus. You can see in the second clip below the hammer being first raised to attack and then thrown into the bus as the doors were shut.

That hammer MAY have first been in the hands of the Proud Boy on the bus at whom it was thrown, or it may have traded hands more than once.

But there was plenty of violence to go around.

One of the people leading the way in various incidents throughout the day was this shirtless man who was obviously looking for a fight.

You can hear him arguing in this clips, from early in the day, caught in a live stream from a Twitter user named ‘Portland Andy’:

Rosas reported that the man was eventually arrested.

Still, there was at least one funny moment to watch and rewatch.

It was not as violent as some of the clashes between far-left and far-right that have taken place in Portland over and over this last year, but as with other recent confrontations, weapons were on site, some of which were confiscated by police. Were it not for the cops and the national Guard, how much worse might it have been?
