Antifa RUNS WILD In Portland, Desecrates War Memorial, Throws Bottles at Officers
Antifa ran wild on the streets of Portland Saturday, taking advantage of a cancelled and dubious supposed Ku Klux Klan rally to wrestle control of the city’s downtown from the Portland police.
Video from the site revealed police fleeing under a hail of thrown objects such as bottles from the Antifa mob.

The City of Portland has generally proved powerless in combatting Antifa’s violence and mob action. Left-wing city administrators and impotent police leadership have allowed the criminal group to take up what is essentially free reign over the city, terrorizing patriotic and conservative protestors who seek to demonstrate in support of their views in Portland.
When the city’s police politely requested that Antifas cease throwing projectiles at officers, the mob responded by lobbing even more objects and chanting “ACAB,” an acronym for “all cops are ba******.”
Online rumors of a supposed Ku Klux Klan rally spurred the Antifa rally in the city’s downtown. It was doubtful from the start that Klan sympathizers would actually surface in the flesh, but the paranoia over such a rally was enough to bring out hundreds of Antifas hoping to instigate mob action. The klansmen never even showed up, a predictable outcome. It’s possible the KKK rumors were fabricated from the get-go in order to give Antifa a justification for riotous behavior.
In a shameful twist, an Antifa thug was seen openly defacing a monument dedicated to American soldiers who fought in the 19th-century Spanish-American War.
Portland’s Antifa element is probably the most dangerous and out-of-control for a major city in the United States, and the city doesn’t appear anywhere near to placing it under control.
