It's not just Portland, anymore. (It never was, but you get the point.) Antifa, the group that purports to oppose "fascism" but mainly just gets mad about various woke issues of the day, has been bigger in the news since attacking independent journalist Andy Ngo on camera last week.
Despite the gross attempts by a lot of lefties to turn the negative reaction back on Ngo, it turned out even the media couldn't avoid reporting on Antifa's violence. Even the police chief had to answer up, (though not very well).
In D.C. on Saturday, the picture became even more clear, as Antifa staged a counter-protest to the so-called "Demand Free Speech Rally" with the "Proud Boys" that featured far-right figures such as Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and others. The Antifa counter-protest is billed as "#AllOutDC", and they handed out preposterous "guidelines" for how the press would be allowed to cover them, and you have to click here and read it to believe it.
The two protest events began in separate locations, separated and cordoned by police, but eventually Antifa must have decided they weren't generating enough attention, despite greatly outnumbering the protest they were counter-protesting, and so they left their area and headed over for confrontations. Which they got. Starting with the police.
Naturally, there was vandalism in addition to their attacks on law enforcement.
And of course the inevitable raging against MAGA hats.
By the way, they attacked another Asian-American...
AND another journalist. Guess old habits die hard.
At the time of this posting, although the protest they are counter-protesting ended some time ago, Antifa is still marauding in the streets.
