Antifa Rally, Portland

Antifa Rally, Portland


That’s a very fancy camera you have there. What group are you part of and whats the event today about. Well I’m here with the banana block [ band ] And the event here today is about supporting our community in face of people importing hate. And we don’t we don’t like it when people come and threaten
our vulnerable people. And we want to be here to protect those people. Today was a KKK rally though apparently they decided not to come, at least
according to police, if they’re to be beleived. And we’re just going to have an awesome anti fascist dance party instead. I heard rumors there might be Patriot Prayer people coming? I’ve heard the same thing. I don’t know what’s going to happen. We’ll see. Sounds like we may have already won the day. I’m excited about that. I heard about a group that I didn’t want to be meeting here, the KKK supposedly. I wanted to come out and see if they’re really going to show, for one. I like taking photographs in my free time. Thought I’d come and try to capture some images. I’m really excited to see there are lot’s of other people who are interested in counter protesting. I try to keep up on protests and social movement stuff that is happening around here. And I think I heard about it through a… I think, PopMob? Is that what they’re called? Have you ever heard of that? Yeah. They’re a Portland protest group. I think I follow them on social media. Saw them mention that something was going down. So I thought I’d show up. So are you gonna get out there and go protesting or are you gonna stay back and take photos? I think I’ll probably just take photos. I usually do participate in these sorts of things, but I just wanted to come out and take pictures today. I haven’t seen you guys around. What are you recording for? The main reason I’m here is if the white supremacists show up to film them. Do you guys work for a news channel or something? You look very professional. Oh yeah, it looks like a big setup. I’ve got some film equipment and I rented the lens. Cool, that’s awesome. All I’ve got is a puny little camcorder in here. You don’t see this every day. So you go with it. Are you recording me right now? That’s cool. I’m fine with that. So what’s your angle here? Are you… I’m for these guys. Are you looking to document Antifa? Are you looking, do you want to see violence or something? No or course not! If you can avoid violence, of course. I just, I prefer… you don’t see this everyday. Get it on tape so you can show your family and friends. There’s a banana playing the drums. You don’t see that everyday. Well are you, are you a,I just you know, are you a… A what? Are you a supporter of Antifa? Or are you a critic… -Yeah I’m a supporter! -Oh your a supporter? Yeah I’m a supporter. Ok, cool. I just didn’t know this was going on today. I’m glad I found it. I wish you the best man. I hope you put that film equipment to good use. – It looks very expensive. – Well, we’ll try. – You have a good day. -Yeah you too. So, I’m independent media. But also an antifascist organizer. So, depending on what kind of things are going on, it depends on the role that I play. So in a situation like this, I come primarily to photograph. And document what’s going on, and who shows up and such. So today Stephen Howard, which is a KKK grand wizard. I don’t know the ranks very well, it’s either grand wizard or imperial wizard. Sounds like the king. Yeah, he was the 2nd or 1st in command in Mississippi. He moved over here around the time of Trump’s election. He’s been to a few Trump rallies. And has been documented showing up to these Patriot Prayer rallies and such. And has been pretty nonexistent at rallies for a couple of years. And he, just a couple weeks ago, called for this rally. He seemed to be fully intending to show up… … and last minute cancelled with the Portland Police. He let them know he wasn’t going to show up. Now everyone’s just hanging out, and there’s gonna be pizza coming. And we were gonna take advantage by, you know, hanging out. So you’re an independent media guy as well, so is your purpose to… … just to get good shots? Or are you here to protect Antifa and counter misinformation? Well I tend not to play the role of any kind of physical protection. I have been in positions where I have done that. But because it had been things escalated to a point where, you know, things had escalated. One situation was, one of the Patriot Prayer guys, he’s a guy named Demi Cooper. He was attacking a smaller feme, and had her on the ground. In that situation I had restrained him. So there’s been a couple situations where I’ve had to do that. But in general I’m hands off, I’m here to document. That’s kind of my role. So your with the Socialist Alternative? Is that the Socialist party? The Democratic party, or is that different? No we’re not part of the Democratic party. We actually believe in building an independent working class political party. Because we think both big corporate parties have failed working class and oppressed people in this country. That being said, we do support Bernie Sanders for presidency. Largely because we believe in his agenda of Medicare for all, of rent control… … most of all building a grassroots movement to actually effect change in this country. But we definitely believe in the need to build grassroots movements to organize outside the main party structures. And that’s part of what we’ve been able to do. We actually have a city councilwoman up in Seattle named Shama Sawant, who’s run as a Socialist Alternative party member, not affiliated with the Democratic party. And actually has used that council position to mobilize to win $15 an hour, has won millions of dollars for affordable public housing, And we think that’s a microcosm of an example of what is possible all across this country if we start… … having politicians who are activists. Instead of just being career politicians. Oh, we’re gonna get in here, and go do some like schmoozing behind the scenes, and just doing enough change that is acceptable to the corporate establishment, we think we need to completely challenge capitalism, and their representatives. We think the problems we’re seeing today: increasing inequality, environmental destruction, lack of workers right, racism and sexism and all these problems, are inherent to the capitalist system and are actually what it thrives upon. We are called Socialist Alternative because we believe that socialism is the only real alternative to the crisis in capitalism. So I’m intrigued. If Elizabeth Warren gets the nomination, would you support her as a socialist? No, I would not support Elizabeth Warren. shake ah go see what we were doing out
here and they were inspired by that took that resolution passed it in their own
area and took it on to the International Convention for trade and pasta and
anti-racist anti-white Nashville that’s in southern Chicago and Chicago wanted
to thank us for forgetting that resolution started and with that they
went ahead and had this banner created and sent it back to us and so with that
we just know that we’re just proud to have been acknowledged and proud to see
other people move along with this beautiful you feel supported or you
what’s your I thought are not people to decline and we comments I here to make a
stand for what we believe and that’s why we are here there is no fear the only
thing to fear is fear itself I’m from Panama City you’re a citizen 25
years when you came here was it different than you thought yes definitely yes also in my country we
have racism in our country here I see stand a much more deep here on blood
deep so I think it surprised to me for me to a country where I think was
freedom justice and equality for everybody but it’s not the case so
that’s why we’re here today it’s important to show up and let everybody
know races and bashes coming to our town and
I’m glad they’re that they are more of a no-show than a shit show today so we’ll
just enjoy ourselves I guess are you how did you hear about the event I’m just
what are you part of the protest or you just here to observe I would say a part
of the Byrds absolutely are you I think we’re all I mean it’s fun to have
different words for the different parts of it but I think for the most part
we’re all here for the same reason and that’s really like we’re just not going
to tolerate domestic terrorists trying to pretend that they have a legitimate
platform yeah and like like I said like it’s nice to have names for the
different things so you can be like you know
but in the end I think we’re all Antipa I think we’re all anti-fascist I don’t
think it’s like a particular group necessarily I think just recognizing
that this is the United States and we have particular freedoms which is good
but when that freedom extends to hate speech and disgusting treatment of
people that are just people just regular people then we have a serious problem
and that freedom allows us to go out and say hey we’re not going to tolerate this
what you’re doing is wrong that all totally makes sense and what I see the
police over there and riot gear what are they what do you what do they think
they’re trying to do what’s going on there I think they’re just doing their
jobs I think they just genuinely believe
they’re doing their jobs I think it’s you know it’s that’s also part of the
u.s. we’ve always had a very strong well-funded police force that is often
ready to act when they need you and they feel that they’re doing the right thing I think that their tactic tactics are a
little outdated but I’m not intimidated a little warm
moderate than an average ante for person to be honest I would consider myself
pretty far left I have very far left views
I can’t imagine you scrolling kill the pigs see I think the thing I think the
real thing that needs to be remembered is that we’re all human being so we’re
all just trying to live our best life together and in order to do that we all
have to have a mutual respect for each other yeah but do you the KKK doesn’t
deserve respect right they don’t deserve resign you I think that a lot of them
are confused I think that a lot of what happens at the KKK and similar groups is
that individuals because of our society it’s so you know over the years it’s
gotten so divided that they don’t have a tribe they don’t have they feel like
they don’t have an in-group they feel like they aren’t being listened to and
so instead what they do is they they latch on to maybe ideas that are quite
frankly disgusting I don’t think the individuals that carry those views are
bad I think you’re so due to use of force and or arrest for the cripple
behavior stay out of the street there’s something to use the force nor
rest the de criminal behavior stay out of the streets to beoh laws this whole thing is a cyclical thing
that human beings have been doing pretty much the entire time we’ve been hominids
you know so help say that Portland Police are true I don’t I haven’t seen
any criminal activity but what’s their stay and they shut the demonstration
down would you does that make you angry yeah but it also is just the reality of
it like I think that they like that you know you could consider them another
faction similar to the KKK maybe not necessarily with the same beliefs but
they’re another in-group they have their own fraternity you’re supporting the men
well you know the man it’s a local way of putting it sure but there are you
know there are views are all like laws are only laws because somebody
believes believes they are that doesn’t necessarily mean make them right are you
here at the rally you’re an old man auntie fuck
oh you’re retired well I’m have retired as long as there’s Nazis but my son’s
here so walk somewhere you know what’s important are you
worried about any danger today always as a parent you’re always worried about
danger but we’re worried about well let’s say the KKK was showing up would
you be more worried about the KKK or the police I would be more worried about a
conflict which the police be called in antabuse get hurt between the police in
the empty pot Leeson anyway it’s their job to keep the peace and I
don’t envy that and I know that there have been these
connections between you know Patriot Prayer and all that stuff I don’t know
what kind about it but about what I do know is 99 for the police office years
we want to go home to their family want to just go home and be saved they want
to keep everybody safe so that’s what I’m hoping for but on the other side you
know my grandfather fought in World War two
he fought Nazis not super the bad guys my father Sir my son is fighting Nazis
one of these days he just got home fibbing there are Nazis inning
it’s just it’s too much so hopefully Patriot prayer this country was founded on the idea
that all men are created every you know they understand that they can’t call
themselves they can’t call themselves we all have to live together they can’t call it’s those Patriots and
they can’t call themselves crap because if you love this country you love the
fact that this country on the idea that all men all people
afraid yes that’s what it’s all about and it
really bums me out to me it’s legal the Saltine individuals for
filming is not legal here subject to force under arrest okay so what is your
thought about this situation they just said the witnessed criminal activity
people being filming are threatened all of the Dragons or they may be set up I honestly don’t know why clash here
situation I really don’t do you think they’re making that up or do you think
that there really was an assault crowd of people running so I don’t know
I know in situations like this tempers run high and people get hurt I was a
journalist for years I’ve been in riots I watched peaceful hippies for lack of a
better word the beaten with an American flesh from
people who are for the war so I’ve seen it I know how dangerous is
so let’s say that there’s a videographer here and there like a right-wing troll
and they’re just as they want to film and Aoife and get stuff like that do you
think they should be tolerated because this is the public space and respected
or should is it reasonable to push them out and I tell them you can’t film
without content as much as I hate the message I believe in freedom of the
press and the current administration is trying to destroy our so-called president talking about
fake New York Times fake news and fake this journalism across the board is
there in shine light everywhere now if there are right-wing Nazi camera people
here I think they should be left is that it is that balance between freedom of
speech are they if they’re at flama Tory yelling things and causing problems I
can’t I can’t advocate violence anyway but I certainly can’t advocate violence
I totally agree with you I’m against violence but well let’s say one random
person punches the conservative journalist is it fair for the police to
shut the whole rally down because if that’s one person who did something
that’s a really hard question fine so you think they might be justified and
shut in the road the second violence begins that’s the tipping point that’s
the tipping point these are Nazis they really suck don’t
want you here I don’t want anyone to get hurt yeah more or less just walking by saw a
gathering decide to stop to check it out not exactly what’s your impression sort
of like a bunch of people hanging out maybe they were expecting some sort of
right-wing groups to show up all right I just moved here from Houston I’ll
classify SEMA this is crazy Devastator you just moved to town but
they got signs right and I mean I see the signs I see oh really just there no no don’t come
there Oh trust lots of races KKK activist and there’s no resistance to
the KKK in Houston no there’s no people getting together places like this with
signs this town loves activism what if things get violent are you gonna run are
you gonna stick around and watch samurai sword you dunno it’s lambreaux
hey bro are you just passing through or you’re part of the I’m not with oh yeah
just checking things out yeah are you a beautiful Street route yeah I
used to sell them most of the protests and the turnout here I mean I’m gonna
say there’s at least 200 people out here so it’s a good people are in good mood
there was a little fight around the corner and somebody just got arrested do
you think the cops are gonna get more you think they’re just trying to scare
people there I don’t know because I haven’t really interacted with them and
I just got here so but I do know that people are
mobilizing to move together as a group and take care of each other so the
couple said that they saw somebody punching a bibliography I think
you follow up with that if they try to shut it down and say that you know I’m
not saying there wasn’t but I can I did not witness it well I could only say get that looks addresses with me yeah
that’s a dirty word yeah that sounds like aggression you
think I have more stuff didn’t catch the hood we have to stand up to this chin I don’t
want that feeling for anybody else so if you can come down to Salem three o’clock
on the Capitol steps we would love to have you you’re all welcome thank you
all very much for your time I’m fucking proud of you fuck yeah thank you so much to the
banana band thanks for everyone for coming out we are if you might have
heard already that on the mr. Chang Howard mr. Grand Wizard of the fucking
kid okay whatever idiot douchebag living in his basement that mother fucker
canceled so I may be the very first to claim victory not just that all right
it’s 11 o’clock right now we have a little bit of time at about 11:45 ish
something like that we’re thinking a whole egg antic pile of pizza shows up
for and everybody here I think rugs it’s like it’s a lot of pieces in the
meantime dance be merry have fun talk to people make a friend you didn’t know
before you got here and if you’d like to practice some tactics over in the
northeast corner we’re gonna play around with a bunch of umbrellas and also some
hula hoops covered in bubble wrap and talk about protest tactics so finally
over there again thank you so much for coming out these are my people like this is the
group we got together like all of them is that what you’re asking
I’m not finding any further actions I’m what we do is direct action support so
so we just show up in support the direct actions and I had everybody’s attention
for a second so I wanted to give him some love you know because like these
are my people and I know the struggle was like and I don’t even know all the
struggles because I don’t carry a mission in Idaho and I know platform no
platform where but I was born here in the Northwest but I know just as many
crazy fucking white supremacist idiots that were home growing up here in the
Northwest has never called out Mississippi like they might roll with
different methods but I tell you what there’s just as much of a threat from
our homegrown idiots the short answer is yes I think patreon
prayer our KKK wannabes like their faith is not true so none of these people are
ever going to be there is no way the same God who created this beautiful
glorious mess you made this mess like racism patriot prayer and Joey Gibson’s
– oh I’m half Japanese so I can’t be racist here visit the polling police bureau to stop
throwing things at officers this is criminal behavior
did you continues this event will be declared civil disturbance arrest stay
on the sidewalk stop assaulting officers what is this protest oh yeah probably that’s how I am bro
testing I think the Trump needs to be thrown into prison yeah so I am you know
I associate myself with Antep I’m anti-fascist Mike to think Trump’s a
fascist concerned what’s going on in our country
to include the division and the destruction of my city I’m here to
protect my city wondering what
you sound like you’re on their side how did they get to their yard in your face
um because they’re trying to provoke a riot and I’m trying to stop the riot
politically we’re on the same side we’re all you know anti-fascist they’re so they’re trying so I said I
support the protest I support the right to protest and I think it’s necessary
that Americans do protest you know assuming that there’s a permit and the
permit says stay on the sidewalks I want to make sure that that the protesters
stay in line so it doesn’t provoke the police to respond every time the police
respond and you kept trying to start by you – don’t try to film her she just
started to try to start fights and started riot well dude I was filming her
and one of your dudes unplugged my camera why would you unplug my camera so
I’m trying to protect the city man that’s what people were saying is that
you’re like no you’re you’re on the side of the police and you kept calling the
police after recording them and so I you know on a previous in a previous protest
I you know the police hit me with with teargas I fucking took a direct hit of
teargas I’m hardly on this side of the police I want to make sure that police
contact doesn’t happen but I’m just wondering what what it was about them
that they saw well you’re getting into a fight with the black claw there must
have been something that triggered them I got into a fight with him I saw you
getting Miller I’m sorry I don’t mean you got
I don’t know who started all I saw you but you said you got into a fight with
you’re a middle-aged woman my middle there’s a bunch of twenty-year-old yeah
yeah I thought you mentioned somebody by name I thought I didn’t recognize it at
a previous time I was assaulted I was battered and and later I went to
the police and filed the report I have no idea who it was what I was doing with
I think what they were referring to when I called the places there was
individuals that were throwing things and I was in the crowd pointing him out
saying this person threw it so I think I’m not sure what all they’re saying I
kind of it becomes white noise I don’t hear it you know there’s one of the good
things about having a hundred people yelling out yet is that it just becomes
white noise nothing nothing pops out anyway all right troll you think that i’m and i
all right roll no no based on what they were saying oh no no I’m I’m I’m
definitely anti-trump anti-fascist hmm and pro Portland I’m white I’m pro my
city and you know I I do like it when protests martyrs I do like it that you
know approved cut your protests will go against the permit in order to be a true
protest and you can say here’s the permit I’m going to get off the sidewalk
what I don’t like is when those when they deviate so far away from the permit
then they’re destroying prop private and public property it’s horrible that one
of our historic monuments I don’t even know what the monument is for but it’s a
piece of public art and it’s horrible that it got destroyed today
then everybody in Portland is a victim of that you know it’s our public art and
you know a hundred percent of the Portland population is a victim from
this vandalism and in the context of protests what they’ve done is is they’ve
hurt the city and that’s what I’m trying to stop anyway for as much as I can in
some ways I think I’m more effective than the police because I can insert
myself on the front lines and if I take you know a face full of pickle juice
it’s much better than having a police line turning around and shooting tear
gas you know when the police get involved it’s never pretty
so the activists were throwing a variety of different things such as peach across
tangerines and tennis balls everything that was thrown could be described as
non offensive what do you think about these police tactics agitate people I’m
glad they backed off because when they had the riot police here just kind of
made everybody more upset more more frantic and so they backed up right now
they’re just being kind of kind of ridiculous like oh you’re in the park
there are people doing illegal pete things in the park so look out so the
riot police eventually goes into notice yeah I mean well that doesn’t mean they
aren’t that doesn’t mean they aren’t somewhere in the area they’re just not
visible and if they’re gonna be if they’re gonna exist they should not be
visible because whenever they’re visible it just makes the crowd more upset and
it escalates the situation so right lease are never a good idea from what I
saw I was posted over there in the corner back when the police were
starting to be over there and shouting at us she was
trying to point out like point out people in the crowd who were throwing
some police so she was trying to get people arrested and I heard she actually
called the police I don’t doubt it do you think she’s really just a
minister do you think she’s like part of the police you think she’s a police
informant or she’s former military so she’s kind of against this kind of
movement against the kick again even though personally I feel like fighting
fire with fire no love I no love for fascism
she yeah she got really angry when I was filming her and then she claims she did
nothing she tried to she she grabs somebody by the hood I think or just
touched their shoulder or something she was like that’s the person they were
throwing oranges and I’m over here like these cops are right Gary thinkin orange
is going to stop them okay but the cops are like that it’s not my first time in
an anti-fashion against nazi protesters do you think so you think the cops have
not really gone there just waiting or something I want to be surprised if they
come back that’s what they do yeah we try to keep
it with good PR long as we try to keep it so that we
look like the victims we’ve already won and I think just the fact that we were
able to stop the KKK rally period means we’ve already won now we just have to
keep keeping them out if you really want to bring light to something I think it’d
be bringing light to the fact that the the manager and I can pull it up on my
phone here in just a couple minutes the manager of pdx handing out PDX permits
for rallies I have I have no idea her political affiliations or anything about
her I just know that or not n IG and you can call her a360 protest this because I think what’s
really important is letting the city know that it’s unacceptable that they’re
granting they’re granting these permits to these people that don’t represent
peace they represent violence and hate and that’s not acceptable
she actually approved this crowd boy rally and gave them a permit to be here
and I think that’s on excessive that’s that’s unacceptable because we have a
right to peaceful assembly and if your organization doesn’t represent peace and
what the fuck are you doing here you this kind of success all of our rallies it’s good to bring out some service I think it was they just realized that the shaved head
Klan robe just isn’t a good look so as long as they simply shine themselves up
got a nice haircut maybe read a couple issues a GQ it did attract more people I
mean this is this really uh she’s just so complicated it just used to just be
neo-nazis in the KKK and now we’ve got gamergaters we’ve got Patriot prayer
proud boys Adam Lawson well which there’s that Canadian citizen that they
arrested the government is supposed to organize
us not oppress us there are more than 175,000 regulations that incriminates on
our personal liberties we have to redefine what a crime really is because
there are too many people in jail and then when they come out they’re not able
to live a sustainable life we are creating criminals our system does not
benefit or represent the people anymore I believe that we need a government that
represents us or none at all give me liberty or give me death give me
liberty or give me death you know and I think that this country really needs to
understand what operation Mockingbird is it was implemented after my grandfather
JFK was murdered what is operation Mockingbird operation Mockingbird was
implemented by the FBI it basically the media the media is controlled by the FBI
and they want you to feel or react a certain way and they manipulate and they
lie I have actually seen photoshopped footage of the DNC saying that these
people were Hillary Clinton supporters they were belly burn a Sanders
supporters in 2016 I saw a live footage broadcast from an indigenous man at the
DNC this is before the primary anybody is supposed to be able to go in and
discuss who they want to vote for but this man grabbed three women by the arm
threw them on the ground and said if you’re not here for Hillary Clinton why
are you here that is fascism
and that is why we have to take it on because we try to elect people who
represent us and then we are shut down we are gaslighted and we are beaten when
the majority of the people want something it’s typically the heart it’s
the liberal heart the good heart people can come to their own conclusions a hey
hey educated public is a tree public thank you I’m coming out with a book
okay look forward to that thank you we’ve got some good ideas thank you I’ve
got a lot of some random person got arrested for like well I saw the cops
come in on bicycles and they just tackled the guy yeah and just took off
like oh yeah posse or something yeah I don’t think was doing anything at all
arrested yup why that just means I can get more dirt I’ve got mistresses it’s a
part of being you know knowing what you do best
between me filming you need I could be your best friend I can be
your worst enemy and then the cops have open the worst enemy right now were they
fucking with you all right no in the past previous times
I did get arrested but that was dismissed so I’m gonna be droppin names
of certain officers here really soon but I’m making sure I’m clear all court
proceedings before I do one was a DHS agent and that’s all I can
say for now you don’t like some of that stuff well
only if it’s different this Creighton is what veterans have done well you don’t
like that it’s a veteran sash you well yeah only because it’s veterans that’s
my only argument there pokkan do otherwise approve of these sentiments you know then again I kind of look stuck
I’m kind of perplexed because people were standing in the ground that could
be pressure washed off I don’t see any chips or any kind of big gouges out of
the actual structure it’s you know what it what is it it’s just a monument okay
you know even it really matters is locked away in here inside your heart
you know what I mean and it’s it’s a you know there’s no damage on it it can be
pressure washed off so yeah and nobody nobody through nothing that isn’t
damaged actual integrity of the structure so they can truly sit there
and get you on oh yeah spray paint push wash it off
look it needs it anyway do you think words there violence um like what did
that setback go home I would know if you said go home and I
you know what and that’s not okay force now yeah I see you to kill cops whether
we like it or not I went downstairs cops I find to be a very necessary presence
depending on the situation Danny you’re such a loser so tropical I’m here on the side of the Klansmen
that’s what you guys are saying I’m the butcher this morning but the point is rally you guys are the only ones here
yet you are the only ones to cause any actual violence and destruction in the
city no it is 24th all over again
you guys come out here Riley no idea you guys are the ones welcome you don’t scare me bitch walk
away walk away you know you’re sorry you got some keep walking fuck you you can
just leave just leave nobody would go back go back to portion and what white supremacy is they’re all
races are invited so we’re not even gonna start on the
meat you should put clearing someone’s fucking mouth people work about why people are better
than Jewish people understand people engage people and everyone else
everybody got fucked over there you don’t have to be white to be a white
supremacist you don’t have to be white to be a fucking fascist I’m just trying
to wrap my head around the one idea that a black man could be a white supremacist kappa technology I tell you don’t trip on those oranges
he’s trying to get people to attack him so that like he wanted somebody to throw
a punch right where the cops were watch right and then they could just come in
and the rest of the yeah propaganda right so how did you first discover that
he liked right now what made you realize that he was a patriot there he kind of
verified it like came over and admitted that he was buddies like coming over here demanding fucking
debate like there’s never steven crowder fucking Bank like make
people like that think that it makes them strong and to come over you know
which is stupid you know Iraq the leftist fuckin like
did you see how he willfully misunderstood other types fuckin refused
to understand that no like white supremacy affects people of all races
like nuts in arguable and like when I pointed out that like gave some have
like shame and like so like you can be a straight supremacist engage likes also
to be able to premises and not quite like clearly it’s built like shame from
like the media showing that you know weight seniors and fuckin like a state
of mind so any buddy of any color could adopt
that state of mind yeah and he was saying a black person can’t be in the
KKK a racist or something like he didn’t have anything except well you should
help that person like what I said for example you can be gay and think you
should help that person you mean this is like a gay person who
like what willingly signs up for a conversion therapy or something like
that or morally better which causes people to stuff like that or believe
that cain is evil so when i was pointing out that it’s not a contradiction being
black and a white supremacist flip when I was trying to point out that that
was not a contradiction I used that as an example and like he had nothing to
say besides you should help that person what did you take that to mean he didn’t
know what else like he didn’t have any light you didn’t have an opinion based
on logic or anything so we threw out whatever he could to escape downtown code black with all of the
victims of pepper spray being knocked out kind of drove me to become a medic they
only 16 at the time and I was taking care of stab wounds that should not have
happened my friend latina trans woman and I don’t really even need to know
what it’s about I kind of summoned by a bunch of my friends to just help protect
the fascist just the fact that the Portland City granting a permit to the
Nazis is unacceptable we have a right to peaceful assembly and you don’t you
represent in this country in the city they can’t accept that in our city we
can’t accept that anywhere what are your concerns here today fear might happen
were you married before as preparing for sapling after spray mostly police action that maybe lines right through people
colored like I could see it on their faces that they were going prepare for everything no hate in Portland no hate anywhere get
out yeah yeah I’m from Vancouver yeah
I represent a few different I don’t work but I’m with a few different
organizations yeah the medium the police definitely
virtually signed with the fascists for example they witnessed an event over
so like at the last one we were purchasing against the proud that proud
boys I witnessed a bet we’re cute like a couple or man or his daughter I don’t
know he looked like 20 years anyway so I think it was a couple they came over and
like started harassing people they came from the pathway for his her ass people
on the counter protest and completely just like shit okay so what was this
through some proud boys there were some proud boys in the crowd sorry I was as an example of why a lot
of the media sites with you know right so they came over and
we’re just being and people made fun of them Yelp the fuckin and they eventually
backed away and walked off and the way the Oregonian reported it was like earth
left crazy leftists attack like a couple walking down the street and chase them
down the street like it was ridiculous well I was watching the k2 news and they
were interviewing a support medic I think an anti thought and you know she
was saying you know we were violence was inflicted on us and so do you think k2
is gonna have a balance story tonight about oh do you think they’re gonna help
find a way to slander you or there’s a good chance that they’ll put
first perspective up and then just find like anything they can to throw up as a
contrast like you know contrast for with you know people in scary masks very
balanced anyway they’re not as bad as the Oregonian I don’t know how bad it’s
gonna be looks great
what is that well it’s a camera I’m just wondering what you made of this
whole thing I lost my gameboy so you didn’t see anything about the
people going by or know what was going on game point you
