An antifa gunman murdered a Trump supporter in the the U.S city of Portland on Saturday night. As the identity of the slain man became public antifa rioters celebrated in the streets, dancing, cheering and chanting. One antifa leader announced to the loud applause of a crowd of left wing extremists that:
“I am not sad that a f***ing Fascist died tonight!”
“Our community can hold its own without the police. We can take out the trash on our own!”
“I am not sad that a f***ing Fascist died tonight!”.
Footage of the shooting appears to catch a man shouting, “Here, we got one over here! We got a Trump supporter here,” seconds before the gunman opens fire murdering Aaron “Jay” Danielson for the crime of wearing a “patriot prayer” hat and a “thin blue line” patch.
“Portland Police officers heard sounds of gunfire from the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street. They responded and located a victim with a gunshot wound to the chest. Medical responded and determined that the victim was deceased,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement.
The gunman opened fire after a black masked mob of antifa rioters threw rocks, metal bars and urine filled water balloons at a massive caravan of about 600 trucks driven by supporters of President Donald Trump organised to protest against the months of antifa riots in Portland. The Trump supporters reportedly responded with mace and paintballs.
An eyewitness of Saturday’s fatal shooting, a fellow pro-Trump protester who was with Danielson when he was targeted claimed that left-wing demonstrators identified them by their Patriot Prayer hats, hunted them down, and ultimately executed his friend.
Incredibly in a Sunday statement the Democratic Governor Gov. Kate Brown blamed the pro- Trump protesters for being attacked by the black masked antifa mob:
“The right-wing group Patriot Prayer and self-proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night, armed and looking for a fight. Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence. I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets. Time and again, from Charlottesville to Kenosha to Portland, we have seen the tragic outcome when armed right-wing vigilantes take matters into their own hands.”
It was reported Sunday night that 48 year old self proclaimed “100% antifa” Michael Reinoehl was under investigation for the murder. Reinoehl had earlier been identified by members of the anonymous online message board 4chan as the shooter thanks to his strange attire and distinctive tattoos. Reinoehl was arrested on weapons charges and released earlier this year at a different antifa led protest. Why he was released so quickly after resisting arrest and being found in illegal possession of both a knife and a firearm is unknown. Much like in Australia in Portland far left extremists are treated with kid gloves.
In a press conference held later in the day Joe Biden blamed white nationalists, right-wing militias, and Donald Trump directly for the violence in America’s cities. He did not mention antifa, despite the fact that a self proclaimed follower of that group had just gunned down a Trump supporter in cold blood in the middle of the street (on camera). Instead Biden seemed to threaten that unless he was elected this November the riots and left wing violence that has plagued American cities this year will continue.
