Antifa thugs gang up on journalist, pepper-spray him, jab him with umbrellas, kick and shove him down sidewalk — while cops 'stand by and do nothing'

'Bye, Nazi!'

TheBlaze on Monday reported about a threatening Antifa mob chasing a videographer during a weekend protest in Portland, Oregon — after which unsympathetic riot police told the videographer that "we're not gonna come out and save you."

Well, another journalist documenting Antifa's courageous deeds got it way worse that day from the far-left masked avengers — and video showed police gathered nearby. The journalist said cops did "nothing."

What are the details?

Brandon Brown — described by conservative writer Andy Ngo as a "local citizen journalist" — was recording video of Antifa gathered on a street when the mob turned on Brown.

Brown's cellphone camera stayed on throughout the ordeal, showing at least 10 Antifa thugs surrounding him before several began poking him with umbrellas. Indeed, Portland police confirmed that some protesters used "metal-tipped umbrellas" to jab "people and chase them down the street."

Another video from a different angle showed Brown getting grabbed from behind:

Brown's video caught one the Antifa militants kicking him:

As the mob continued to pursue Brown and ordered him to leave — yelling "Bye, Nazi!" and cursing him out — one gave him a face full of what appeared to be pepper spray:

That was it for Brown — although one brave Antifa soul can be seen leaving the safety of his pack and facing him down one last time:

Brown can be heard on his own video complaining of not being able to see.

And then — right toward the end of Brown's clip — a large group of police officers on bicycles came into view, apparently a block or less from the incident. Brown noted in his video description that "police stand by and do nothing."

Portland police on Tuesday didn't immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for comment on Brown's claim.

The following is Brown's video — and below it is the shorter clip of the incident shot from a different angle. (Content warning for both videos: Language):
