Blood and Chaos in Portland as Violent Antifa Aim to Shut Down Right Wing Rally

Published

Police did little to nothing to stop bloody brawls and altercations in the streets of Portland on Sunday, as violent anarchists attempted to shut down yet another pro-Trump free speech rally.

Organized by a group called the “Patriot Prayer,” the rally-goers had gathered at 2 p.m. for an event dubbed the “Freedom March.” The Facebook event page for the march stated “the more hatred we see the more we have to stand against it. The more threats that we get the more we have to come out to show no fear. The more people lie about us the more we have to show who we are. We will continue to come into Portland with a simple message that is focused on truth, love, and freedom.”

As we have seen with nearly every free speech or pro-Trump rally, the group was almost immediately met with militant counter protesters. Journalists at the scene all noted that there was almost no police presence, and nothing was being done to stop or prevent the fights which broke out throughout the day. The Police Department later tweeted that they are reviewing videos from the altercations and that arrests may be made at a later date.

In footage captured by local journalist Mike Bivins, skateboards, flagpoles, and pepper spray were being used as weapons. The anarchists also burned American flags to antagonize the patriots.

Portland has been a hotbed for clashes between patriots and those who claim to be against fascism while simultaneously attempting to shut down the free speech of those they disagree with.

In June, anarchists began attacking police officers during another pro-Trump free speech rally.

Unlike the counter protest, the Trump rally was peaceful and was not declared to be an unlawful assembly. The rally continued as planned through the scheduled conclusion.

Supporters of President Trump and the freedom of speech have been holding frequent rallies across the nation, nearly all of which feature some type of violence from the Antifa extremists. The next one is scheduled to take place in Boston on August 18. Big League Politics will be live on the scene covering the day’s events as they unfold.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax

Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.

Published

on

Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.

Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.

But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.

“The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”

Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
