Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 18, 2019

A few hundred fascists once again invaded Portland for a much-anticipated rally Saturday, but this time were mostly deprived of the violent spectacle they crave, as a much larger group of anti-fascists made them know they weren't welcome in this city.

"Early Saturday morning before the rally, the Proud Boys received a big endorsement for their cause. "Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ORGANIZATION OF TERROR,'" the president tweeted. "Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!"

Trump is proud on his boys.

hmmmm sounds like everyone had some fun...

I'm all for getting outside and do some walking around to get some exercise while the weather's nice...

Of course no one's marching around when you got that cold Portland rain coming down during the winter...

Sooo gotta crack some skulls while the weather is still nice...

I guess they were never a threat after all. That's good to know. Meanwhile, Antifa's pent-up aggression had to be taken out on someone. anyone really.

Of course they were outnumbered as they are in the libbie bastion of Portlandia.

Well, that's just awful. I'm glad the kids didn't witness any of that.

Antifa probably sang the communist internationale when they weren't beating up people.

If they're smart enough to know what that is. My guess is they were singing 'Love Hurts'.

El Paso wasn't "existential".

The three alt-righters arrested over the weekend for planning shooting sprees were "existential".

This is how you confront Neo-Nazis. You outnumber them and drive them out.

When your lies get called out:
www.oregonlive.com

Bus attacked? It was a private bus of alt-righters and video shows it was their hammer and they swung it at the Antifa members. It was then taken from them and thrown back at the bus.

Not seeing any reports of concrete being thrown.

A guy and his ADULT daughter were chased. Turns out it was a well known Alt-Righter who had just attacked some of the counter protest crowd.

Debunked

Maybe you shouldn't get your news from StormFront and Alt-Right Andy Ngo.

That's how to create riots. Let LEO do their job; monitor, infiltrate, act on threats. They don't need YOU showing up in riot gear.

Portland issued them a permit. Why aren't you boycotting the city of Portland?

No? I assumed they had since they had done so before.

Then why would Portland allow their streets to be taken over by anyone?

...or deploy 1000 police? If there was no permit, they should have all been arrested the moment they took to the streets.

My comment is based upon the video evidence I've viewed. Was it selectively edited like the Covington Catholic video to create a false impression? That's possible.

Alright Sycophant I clicked your link and the claims were hardly debunked. A still photo is nowhere nearly as compelling as video evidence. Ever hear of photoshop? In the video shot from a distance the altercation is too far away to make the claim that the guys on the bus had the hammer initially. That claim is based solely on a still photo that could have been altered. About 30 seconds after that a counter-protester broke 3 school bus windows, as it was being driven, with....you guessed it, a hammer.

Debunked? Hardly, especially given that the counter-protesters were throwing projectiles at the gray bus before the protesters attempted to exit. Antifa was clearly the agressors.

I don't think too many alt-righties are going to welcome a gay Asian into their groups.

I Googled him. A couple of hit pieces with some thin claims. A very lengthy, and to be honest, a pretty fair take from a writer at Buzzfeed who knows him and witnessed his assault back in June.

Jeff.

If you're a reporter who grossly misreport a story, literally creating events that never happen, you should be fired and blacklisted as a journalist.

There seems to be some question about whether the anti-fascist contingent was "Antifa" or anarchists.

I'm not fond of people in masks during a protest situation, no matter who they are. Believe in what you say? Show yourself.

Proud Boys were banned for a time because they brought guns. I presumed they were still banned and astonished they keep coming back where nobody wants to hear or see their misogynist polo-clad messaging.

What happened, the Proud Boys came in two buses, had a half hour "demonstration", waved flags, sang songs and left in the same buses to go to a barbecue. 14 individuals were arrested, none were with the Proud Boys. The leader of the Proud Boys is not white. The Proud Boys expelled the alt-right members more than a year ago. proudboysusa.com

Antifa members are for the most part spoiled little college graduates who graduated with majors like english lit, butterfly studies and cat psych and are pissed that they can't get a job where they make tons of money and don't have to work. In other words they are a burden to society. And yes, their lazy assed parents should shoulder a brunt of the blame.

In their own words:
The Time For Apologies Is Past
I Am A Western Chauvinist And I Refuse To Apologize For Creating The Modern World.
The West is the Best!
The Proud Boys confuse the media because the group is anti-SJW without being alt-right. "Western chauvinist" includes all races, religions, and sexual preferences.
Our group is and will always be MEN ONLY(born with a penis if that wasn't clear enough for you leftists)! If you are (and were born) a woman and you would like to be involved, there is a girls group. They call themselves Proud Boys' Girls and they're our second-biggest demographic." It may seem counterintuitive that a men-only group would have such a big female following, but nobody wants men to be men more than the women who depend on them. "Proud Boys saved my marriage," says PBG Gabriela Finch. "I was completely done with it, but he won me back and fought hard for it." This group is full of all kinds of women. Wives, girlfriends and single girls are all welcome. Just like the mens group, the girls have no other requirements about race, religion or sexual preference.
The fact that this group has exploded so quickly is a testament to how completely finished young American men and women are with apology culture. Men have tried being ashamed of themselves and accepting blame for slavery, the wage gap, ableism, and some fag-bashing that went on two generations ago, but it didn't work. So they're going with their gut and indulging in the natural pride that comes from being part of the greatest culture in the world. It's very freeing to finally admit the West is the best. That's because it's the truth.
Your boggy man is much more dangerous than you first thought. Their application requires a background check.

Two members of the Proud Boys, a self-identified Western-chauvinist group, were convicted of assault for fighting with members of a leftist group on the streets after an event in New York.

A jury found Maxwell Hare, 27, of Harrisburg, Pa., and John Kinsman, 39, of Morristown, N.J., guilty of attempted gang assault, three charges of attempted assault and rioting.

Hare and Kinsman were among 10 members of the Proud Boys charged after the October street fight. All but three of them pleaded guilty to various charges; one faces trial later.

The brawl took place on Oct. 12, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Members of the Proud Boys left an event at the Metropolitan Republican Club " where the group's founder, Gavin McInnes, had spoken " and encountered antifascists, or antifa activists, protesting, officials said.

Hare, Kinsman and other members of the Proud Boys taunted the protesters and made threats, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., before being dispersed by police.

Then Hare and Kinsman and other members of their group punched, kicked, elbowed and stomped the antifa activists about a block away, Vance said, before police intervened again.

"As violent extremism rises in America, a Manhattan jury has declared in one voice that New Yorkers will not tolerate mob violence in our own backyard," Vance said in a statement. "These defendants transformed a quiet, residential street into the site of a battle-royale, kicking and beating four individuals in a brutal act of political violence. I commend my office's prosecutors and investigators for their diligence in tracking these defendants down, and I thank the NYPD for their partnership in holding them accountable."

That's great news, our justice system works!

No need for Antifa to rush into the streets in full riot gear and get in the way of the police!

This isn't the last time Portland will see these guys. They have promised to have a demonstration every month until they feel their rights are respected by the police and the civil authorities in the People's Republic of Portlandia.
