    PORTLAND, Ore. — The ACLU of Oregon has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a protester who said she was "permanently disfigured" because of flashbang munitions fired into a group. The organization announced the lawsuit at a news conference Monday morning in their downtown Portland office. The incident alleged in the complaint filed Monday, Aug. 5, in the Multnomah County Circuit Court occurred during a clash of counter-protests at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland on Aug. 4, 2018. The civil complaint filed on behalf of Fawcett, 53, alleges she, "neither engaged with PPB Officers nor provoked this attack....

    A Humboldt Park man was found guilty Friday of aggravated battery charges for stabbing a man who confronted him about his purported membership in a white nationalist group outside a concert at Northerly Island in 2017. Brushing aside claims of self-defense during a two-day bench trial, Judge William Hooks on Friday found that Thomas Christensen badly overreacted to a “sophomoric” confrontation with a 30-year-old fellow concertgoer who called him out as a member of the white nationalist Proud Boys, and got in a scuffle that left Christensen with cut on his lip and scalp. “The reaction of the defendant to...

"I don’t look good at the moment cause the tyranny of what trump did, the nature of this call is secret. You...

    A couple of men on the far-right held an “End Domestic Terrorism” rally in Portland, Oregon on Saturday. As expected, the violent left-wing group Antifa showed up to counter protest. Ironically, the protest was about stopping their violent counter protests. Dressed in black, some wearing masks, Antifa struck at the windows of buses carrying people on the right, sprayed pepper spray at them and tried to drag them out of the bus using a hammer. They broke a window on one of the buses. At one point, they chased a man and a young girl dressed in flag clothing who had become...

    A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. — Mark Maxwell (@MarkMaxwellTV) August 17, 2019 A Democratic state senator from Illinois came under fire over the weekend after pictures were posted online showing his supporters at a fundraising event performing a mock assassination on President Trump. “The tolerant left,” wrote a Facebook user in response to the incident.

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise rebuked Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro on Tuesday for tweeting out a list of Trump donors and their employers in the San Antonio area. “People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand,” Scalise wrote on Twitter. Scalise was shot in the 2017 attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen and nearly died. Castro’s tweet listed the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents, including 11 retirees, who donated the federal maximum of $2,700 to President Donald Trump’s...

    The shooter who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, had expressed a desire to commit a mass shooting and showed an interest in violent ideology, investigators said Tuesday as the FBI announced it is opening an investigation. Federal investigators will try to determine what ideologies influenced 24-year-old Connor Betts, who might have helped him or knew in advance of his plan, and why he chose the specific target of Dayton’s Oregon entertainment district for the shooting early Sunday, said Special Agent Todd Wickerham, the head of the FBI’s Cincinnati field office. Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Betts had “violent...
  • Vox: The Only Way to ‘Do Something’ About Gun Violence is Nationwide Confiscation

    In the aftermath of two horrific shootings over the weekend, Vox is quite comfortable calling for what the anti-gun left has wanted in this country since the late 1960’s — full-on gun confiscation. But let’s be clear about precisely what kind of decision is letting events like this recur, most recently in Dayton and El Paso. Congress’s decision not to pass background checks is not what’s keeping the US from European gun violence levels. The expiration of the assault weapons ban is not behind the gap. What’s behind the gap, plenty of research indicates, is that Americans have more guns....

    Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts was reportedly the lead singer of a misogynistic “pornogrind” metal band called Menstrual Munchies — which released songs about rape, murder, necrophilia and other gruesome acts against women. “I feel s–tty having let him be in the band, doing those lyrics,” said bandmate Jesse Creekbaum in an interview with VICE News. “It’s like, Jesus Christ, how much of this was like real life for him?” Betts, 24, slaughtered nine people on Sunday — including his own sister — with an AR-style rifle before being killed by police. He also managed to wound 27. “I know,...

    The van lumbered down one of Seattle’s many steep hills. A half dozen people packed inside but despite the heat, most wore long pants and boots, and several sported black hoodies. The atmosphere was subdued, except for the occasional joke. It wasn't so much tension as seriousness – there was work to be done.The people in the van are members of the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club (PSJBGC). Their stated aim is to fight white supremacy and build community defense in America’s Pacific north-west, and their presence has become a fixture of protests in the Seattle and Tacoma areas,...

    The National Museum of African-American History and Culture in our nation’s capital fills a void, providing us with an in depth look at the unique African-American experience in America since the days of slavery. It is disheartening, therefore, to hear that this coming September the museum is featuring an old documentary on Angela Davis titled, Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners. After the screening there will be a discussion moderated by Rhea Combs who will interview and question Ms. Davis. In announcing the event, the museum’s press release notes that “we all recognize that Prof. Davis is a figure...

    City leaders in Portland, Ore., are considering making it illegal for protesters to wear masks in an attempt to address violent clashes between left-wing and right-wing activists, the latest of which occurred a few weeks ago. Police Chief Danielle Outlaw first called for an antimask law after dueling protests on June 29, where a conservative writer said he was assaulted by members of the left-wing group Antifa, who frequently wear masks. Demonstrators from Antifa, short for antifascist, were among those countering a march by the Proud Boys, which calls itself a “Western Chauvinist Group” and is designated as a hate...

    Portland Antifa is planning a memorial for the terrorist, who attacked a migrant detention center with an AR-15 rifle and Molotov cocktails, tonight calling him a “fallen comrade”. After the horrifying attack on a migrant detention center that, had it not been foiled by local authorities, could have resulted in the deaths of law enforcement as well as migrants, Portland Antifa has sided with terror and is planning a vigil for Willem Van Spronsen. The pro-Antifa Twitter account @OccupyICEPDX posted information about the memorial today, inviting residents of Portland to “Stand with us to honor our fallen comrade, #WillemVanSpronsen, this...

    The self-proclaimed Antifa militant who was killed Saturday by Washington state police as he attacked a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center was seen in a recent CNN program that critics say glorified a radical, left-wing movement. Willem Van Spronsen, 69, sent a manifesto to friends the day before the assault in which he wrote, "I am Antifa," and now he is lionized by members of the leftwing group as a "martyr." He also appears to have been part of a May 5 episode of CNN’s “United Shades of America” with W. Kamau Bell.

    BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Police Civil Rights Unit has launched an investigation after a woman allegedly threw a large piece of cement through a stained glass window at Sacred Heart Church in East Boston and defaced the doors with graffiti. “It’s precious to the Church, the stained glass is the Sacred Heart of Jesus,” said pastor Rev. Guy Scaccia. Late Monday night Boston police say the unidentified woman broke the bottom half of the now boarded window scattering the shards of glass below. The vandal then defaced the church doors with scribbling that makes reference to a far right...
