The groups know they will get a headline-grabbing reaction from Portlands so-called antifa, whose members have issued an online call to their followers to turn out to defend Portland from a far-Right attack.
Portlands Rose City Antifa, the nations oldest active anti-fascist group, says violence against right-wing demonstrators is exactly what should happen..."
Portland leaders are planning a major law enforcement presence on the heels of similar rallies in June... None of the citys nearly 1,000 police officers will have the day off, and Portland will get help from the Oregon State Police and the FBI. Mayor Ted Wheeler has said he may ask Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, to call up the Oregon National Guard.
At the June rally, masked antifa members beat up a conservative blogger named Andy Ngo. Video of the 30-second attack grabbed national attention and further turned the focus on Portland...
Republican Sens. Ted Cruz, of Texas, and Bill Cassidy, of Louisiana, introduced a congressional resolution calling for anti-fascists to be declared domestic terrorists...Portlands City Hall has been evacuated twice due to bomb threats after the June 29 skirmishes...
Police have noted the violence in June was limited to a small area of downtown Portland despite three different demonstrations that lasted more than five hours, with hundreds of people constantly on the move.
Joe Biggs, organizer of Saturdays rally, said the attack on Ngo made him decide to hold the event with the goal of getting antifa declared a domestic terrorist organization. Biggs said those coming to Portland have been told not to bring weapons or start fights, but they will defend themselves if attacked.
He says he is not racist he has a toddler daughter with his Guyanese wife but wants to show the world antifas violent tactics.

ground zero for our civil war I’m afraid ... these antifa chumps are going to find out they’ve bitten off much more than they can chew
Marshmallow roast at the Reichstag?
“Far Right” - I believe that term now applies to anyone who has fallen behind on their dues payments to the Communist Party of America?
When’s the last time anyone saw a headline about the “Far Left” or “Left-Wing Extremists”?
Portland is just begging - BEGGING - for BITS.
Naturally it will be blamed on Right Wingers.
There is so much left wing propaganda in this its hard to believe they call it Journalism.
You can almost hear them cheering for Antifa to kill someone.
Isolated to a small area?
The protests are always near the city square off the MAX as its public and protesters get public funded transportation.
This is a perfect example of how the local MSM controls the message.
It started in CA and is now everywhere in the USA.
Control the message and you control the people.
Stop calling them anti-fascist. They are anything but. And if you go there, take extra magazines.
Far Right - I believe that term now applies to anyone who has fallen behind on their dues payments to the Communist Party of America?”
Winner and keeper!!!!
The worst of the pro-anarchist language was not included in the excerpt.
It sounds like the far left is planning on going full retard with their violence.
They should make sure to have multiple video recordings taken from everywhere and different angles. Post them to YT and elsewhere (as YT will probably remove them...).

Antifa, the nations oldest active anti-fascist group, says violence against right-wing demonstrators is exactly what should happen..."
This reminds me of years ago in the Bay Area. Sometimes a rally was planned, and local stores in downtown Oakland, and Berkeley would put wooden boards up covering their glass windows. It looked as though they were preparing for a hurricane or tsunami. Everyone knew to be away from that rowdy part of town towards the evening.
It would all start ‘peacefully’, with a march down main streets, blocking traffic. But after sunset, that was when groups such as Black Block, Antifa, BLM or LaRaza would send their thugs out, setting fires in trashcans, then tipping those cans over. It seemed done just for the sake of creating chaos.
Leftist totalitarian Antifa have killed and maimed in a number of areas, including the last mass shooting.
Also they dont have to be wearing the uniform to be leftist killers.
There is no “far left”.
There is only leftwing totalitarianism - i.e. communism, socialism. marxism, progressivism, naziism, fascism, etc
Different brand names for Karl Marx’s failed 19th century cult called “leftism”.
I love how the neo marxists are referred to as anti fascist and not communists
Get the popcorn.
What “Far Right” group would be dumb enough to assemble in Oregon? Law enforcement, Antifa, and the local/state political structure will be coordinated against them. People will be physically harmed, prosecuted for defending themselves, and lose their jobs for participating. Dumb.
