Watch: “Street Anarchy” As Antifa Attacks Portland Drivers That Don’t Obey

How to Keep Your Knives at the Ready
Planning To Retire Off-grid? Here’s Where To Relocate

Well-known conservative columnist and author Rod Dreher reacts to shocking video which emerged on Monday showing masked Antifa members taking over an entire busy intersection and claiming the authority to direct traffic in an American city.

Notice that these thugs include white people using racist anti-white language to order drivers to do as they say.

Is this America? Is this routine in Portland? Why are the Portland police not arresting these people? This video captures the faces of some of them. Arrest them. Jail them.

And yet the Portland resident and journalist, Andy Ngo, who first posted the now viral video says “This is the type of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live.”

What’s worse is that after a dozen or more of the anarchists usurped police authority and actually threatened drivers who didn’t obey their dictates as they hesitantly pulled through the intersection, the real police have confirmed that they watched and did nothing.

The footage further shows multiple instances of cars being hit with rods and fists for refusing to obey their commands. “I’ll beat the shit out of you!” men standing in the middle of the road shout at passing cars.

“We don’t need your KKK in Portland, Oregon!” – another shouted at a man for merely having North Carolina plates. Drivers are prevented from going left while Antifa members shout down justifiably angered drivers who are being forced to turn right.

One driver pauses in the intersection and appears to call the police on his cell phone, which further enrages the mob. The radical far-left group claimed to be protesting a recent police shooting in the city.

Starting at the 1:20 mark of the original video a police patrol unit can clearly be seen stationed at the end of the block, with a uniformed officer simply standing by to watch the mayhem and harassment of drivers unfold.

Indeed, one elderly man was nearly beaten by the mob as a separate video at what appears to be another intersection shows the mob chasing down the man for refusing to stop as he was presumably in fear for his life.

The elderly citizen stops his car after making it through the initially blocked intersection, and after the group had pounded on his vehicle, after which a baton-wielding man threatens him.

Immediately after the senior citizen shuts his door the crowd starts wailing on his vehicle, with the baton holder smashing into the door. Clearly it appears the driver was only moments away from being savagely beaten.

Moments after the elderly man exited his car a man with a baton smashes the window out. (screengrab)

Local media claimed the elderly man had “plowed through protesters” — likely as a result of Antifa members phoning into police claiming it was they who were victims of being attacked by a car.

 Yet the mob can be clearly seen threatening passing cars with weapons while issuing threats.

On Monday night a local CBS News affiliate confirmed the elderly man filed a police report, citing over $3,000 in damages to his car. The man said the group had blocked him in and later began beating on his car:

The driver, who spoke with KOIN 6 News but did not want to go on-camera, said he got out of his car earlier and asked protesters to move. But, he said, they grabbed him. He got back into the car, which is when they began beating on his car and smashed his driver’s side window.

But more revealing is the Portland Police statement, also issued Monday night, which confirms police refused to intervene in order to protect what the department is describing as the free speech of the Antifa members.

CBS KOIN 6 News reports the statement as follows:

PPB Sgt. Chris Burley said officers were monitoring the protest. Asked why police didn’t step in when protesters went into the streets and affected traffic, Burley said the bureau “weighs the ability for people to gather to practice their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and assembly, as well as the impact it places on the rest of the Portland community. Throughout this event the police bureau was monitoring the crowd.”

Is this what the police are now willing to protect and even facilitate in an American city?

Indeed, an elderly local resident’s car was attacked and the senior citizen himself nearly beaten to death by a baton and stick-wielding masked mob as police merely “monitored” the situation.

    Its time to cut the police salary as they are not doing their job which is to SERVE & PROTECT the INNOCENT citizen from harm….what is wrong with that police…they should LOSE THEIR JOBS. Antifa should not be directing traffic and they should not be harassing people who are driving down the road which is totally legal and going about their business…I wonder if that elderly man was one of their parents would they have still acted the same way. The Mayor of this town is a disgrace to his position, just another wacked out lefist who holds a government job. So I guess his motto should be STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES???

      Don’t blame the police. The mayor and Chief of Police told them NOT TO ANSWER 911 calls to ICE Headquarters. I guess they don’t think they should protect anyone from these bullies. When someone gets hurt or killed and they get the shit sued out of them they might do something. However, in the meantime, the good people of Portland might consider kicking these good for nothing leftist POS political hacks out of office BEFORE they get someone killed.

    Obviously the local police have been compromised and the Governor of Oregon should send in the national guard, state police to control the situation, and request help from the FBI to investigate. Further the Mayor to the Chief of Police should be put on notice their services will be terminated if this continues and that this kind of behavior is not permitted for any reason. Oregon has voters and they should use that authority to recall and change their political Representatives in government.

      Should the Mayor or any other official accept this behavior – they become compliscent in the action of these spoiled brats. The Federal Government can step in to protect the citizens – the compliscent government employee can be arrested and held accountable. If you punks want a war the last people you want to confront are Veterans – you would end up finding out how absolutely stupid you are.

    Even if the police don’t want to shot these thugs, maybe taz one and they’ll think before they break the law. I chicago the mayor gave into the thugs earlier this year and now they all think they can stop traffic where ever they want and hurt people that had nothing to do with their beef. MY TAX DOLLARS where wasted with all the extra police, state workers, and city workers that had to be called out each time. Friday in Chicago protesters marched and blocked traffic. I watched the news and found that when the protesters where asked why their protesting, they all had different answers. They cant even agree on the mission. People are sick of the thugs running things because everyone is scared to hurt their feelings

    Violence & threats are NOT protected free speech! The police are simply trying to avoid confrontation with this violent group, so they do not rein them in as they should. This type of violence, really anarchy, is what Communists desire because that always leads to a dictatorship as a means of controlling the violence. This is also what the Democrats not only support, but encourage.

This type of violence, really anarchy, is what the Democratic Communists desire because that always leads to a dictatorship as a means of controlling the citizenry of the USA. Imagine that YOU are guilty until proven innocent. Good way to shut you up because as Google people are aware “Diversity of opinion is NOT tolerated.”

    Antifa–is it not yet declared a terrorist organization? If ordinary citizens cannot go about their normal business on a normal day, and instead face the threat of being beaten savagely and do indeed experience the malicious beating up of their cars, I wonder what a person with a CCW permit would be allowed to do? I would be in fear of my life and these hoodlums would probably pick on an 80 yo woman…what human better to beat up than an 80 yo woman? Frankly I would shoot them center mass.

      I am a native Oregonian and I can say without reservation that Oregon should be two separate states. The part of the state south of the Willamette Valley is much more conservative and not prone to such outbreaks fascist thuggery. The northern part of the state, sadly, has the population density so we in the southern part of the state are forced to live with the insanity that is so prevalent in Salem an Portland.

      Rest assured, if a gang of thugs were to attack an senior in this part of the state, the police would NOT be standing by with their thumbs up their backsides.

      For all of you who are thinking of giving Oregon a pass on your travel plans, please consider Medford, Ashland, and other cities in the southern part of the state. The Rogue Valley has an award winning craft beer and wine scene, several creameries that make cheeses with international recognition and best of show awards, plenty of natural beauty, and the State’s only National Park – Crater Lake.

    Those Antifa people should NOT be able to diect traffic even if they call it free speech because they were disrupting the public and causing damage to their cars because they do not conform to what those Antifa people wanted the car to do even if it was against their ability to get to where they wanted to get to the destination they wanted to get to and do what they want without those Antifa peopel trying to get them to go another way even if it would take them 5 miles out of their way to get to where they were going.
    Those police are getting a lot of FLACK for NOT helping the public to get to where they were headed.
    To me it just seems that the police is just helping the Antifa people to dirupt traffic and to get some people KILLED because they are NOT even helping the public to get past those Antifa people trying to unset traffic by just SAYING it is free speech and clubs are NOT covered by the FREE SPEECH part of the constitution.

    Yes this also happened repeatedly in San Jose CA during the Trump campaign where a number of people were beaten in front of Police and the Police did nothing.

    A day after a melee erupted outside a Donald Trump rally, the San Jose police chief and mayor on Friday defended themselves from a national backlash over their handling of the dramatic and at times violent protest.

    On radio talk shows and across social media, some called for Mayor Sam Liccardo’s resignation because of his comments suggesting that Trump was to blame for igniting violence, while police were criticized for failing to protect Trump supporters from angry protesters throwing punches, water bottles and traffic cones.

    But what has gone largely unreported, is that police chief Eddie Garcia is affiliated with the far left group La Raza.

    But behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.

    I take it Oregon is not an open carry state NOR do the police do their job?? If I’m wrong, I apologize but I am confident the police had to know what was going on – street cameras don’t you know.
    What these little pigs did was another display of ignorance & intolerance. They are going to go too far, they will eventually get what they deserve and then we will see who is still standing in the end!

  • comment-avatar

    I used to live in Oregon and I am so glad I moved out of that liberal state because if this happened to me I would probably be in jail because I had a concealed carry permit there and carried everywhere I went and if I felt threatened I would of used my gun to defend myself.

    I would not be surprised if George Soros is behind all of this uproar – he was a youth under Hitler and came to America after the War and made his money on Wall Street. Now he uses his billions to destroy America. Why does he hate us? He is paying Democratic candidates all over America which means he will own them – gave Stacy Abrams, running for Governor in Georgia, 1million before last election. Has been giving Black Candidate for Governor in Florida money for five years. Paid off protestors in Kavanaugh hearings, Prof. Brown is a friend of Soros, her attorney is a Soros operative, and the woman who was in elevator with Sen. Flake was a Soros operative. He also paid the Democratic Party 5 billion dollars and said, “He will be president.” If you compare pre-Natzi Germany, you will find similar use to what is happening here. 1) confiscation of guns 1) desire for gun control (thank you NRA for standing strong) 2)toppling of statues from the past as irrelevant, 2) toppling, drsacrating or removing confederate statues of The Past. 3)pitting groups against each other – the Jews, 3) whites and blacks building up racism when we’re been getting along fine for years. Follow the money.
