A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.

Feckless Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Pepper Sprays Man After Bar Fight Over Masks, Flees Scene
Will Wheeler face criminal charges?
Left-wing Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was involved in a physical altercation of sorts on Sunday night, ultimately pepper spraying a man who asked him to wear a mask at a Portland restaurant.
The left-wing mayor recounted the incident in a Portland Police report. Wheeler relayed information regarding the incident through his public safety advisor, but it doesn’t appear he actually reported the altercation himself.
Wheeler recounts being approached by a man at Hillsdale McMenamin’s pub, who questioned why the mayor wasn’t wearing a mask. The man, according to Wheeler, followed him to his car, with a brief conversation ending when Wheeler utilized pepper spray on the target. The man was surprised Wheeler resorted to spraying him, exclaiming “I can’t believe you just pepper sprayed me.”
Wheeler has been largely responsible for the city of Portland’s ‘stand down’ approach to Antifa and left-wing violence, making his city a national embarrassment over the protests and riots that have devastated the community since last spring.
Wheeler had been harassed and allegedly assaulted at a restaurant several weeks ago, with repeat Portland riot arrestees approaching the mayor and screaming at him. It’s totally unclear if this altercation began in a similar fashion.
The left-wing mayor finally condemned the Antifa terror movement at the start of the year, well after Joe Biden’s election as president. Wheeler himself participated in Antifa riots at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse throughout the summer.
Wheeler could potentially face criminal charges such as assault and battery stemming from the incident, with his own account of events seeming to suggest that he escalated the altercation to a physical dispute.
‘Polite’ Democrats are hoping that the criminal Antifa movement will quietly go away now that Trump’s out of the picture, but Portland’s total failure to stop far-left street violence bodes poorly for their plans.
