Right-wing groups from across the country had converged on Portland to protest Antifa and bring attention to its terrorist-like activities.
Antifa is a far-left group whose members have made Portland a stronghold and often engage in protests that eventually turn violent. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter today that major “consideration is being given to naming Antifa an ‘organization of terror.’”

The Portland Police said they are trying to keep two large groups away from each other—presumably Antifa and the Proud Boys. The Proud Boys describe themselves as “Western chauvinists who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world,” according to their website.
[Journalist Andy Ngo, who was the victim of “milkshaking” with cement earlier this summer, reports the following different incidents by eye witness:
A large Antifa mob chase & attack a man & a young girl who got separated from the others. No police.
Antifa attacks people on a bus. They try to pull them out and hit them with a hammer.
When the buses left, Antifa chased it down and broke windows. One Antifa guy fell down.
Ngo: “I recognize this shirtless man from Seattle last year at another Antifa protest. He came up to me and said, “Death is coming.”
One man arrested by Portland police appeared to have a gun.
Concrete blocks were brought in by Antifa to throw and were seen thrown at busses.]
[Portland Mayor] Wheeler has consistently condemned conservative groups but avoided mentioning Antifa by name. He struggled to say why police haven’t’ made any arrests from the assaults Antifa committed last month when a host asked “What message does that send?”
The city has also failed to take action on an anti-mask law proposed by Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw after the assault of Ngo and the other men. Antifa members like to obscure their faces to try to avoid arrest and prosecution.
