Armed Antifa runs into freeway in Portland on Saturday, right into oncoming traffic and gets hit. The person is claiming that they were “pushed”, but the video evidence shows that didn’t happen.
The armed Antifa member, who had stalked and was harassing the Patriot Prayer Rally for Jesus, ran into the freeway in Portland on Saturday, with glasses, hood and mask, directly into the traffic without looking.
They were hit. Hard.
In the video, the police medic asked what happened.
You can hear the person hit saying, “I was confronting White Supremacists and they charged us, so I ran across the street. The car didn’t have enough time to stop. It wasn’t their fault.”
Patriot Prayer was holding a rally in Portland on Saturday. It was their “March for Jesus” and it was just about over.
The day had gone well. Antifa had decided to also hold an event – a drive to gather donations. Patriot Prayer members had even donated to that event. (Making sure it was clothing/blankets and not things Antifa could use as a weapon to throw at them) The groups were far apart and everything seemed to be going fine. Then, four Antifa members with noise makers, decided to come to the Patriot Prayer rally and try to stop it. They were trying to drown out the singer below as she was singing “Hallelujah” .
Essentially, attempting to deny Patriot Prayer members their freedom of religion.
Joey Gibson, the founder of Patriot Prayer, said this about the incident: “Someone getting hit by a car is extremely dangerous, and I am relieved that they were not seriously hurt.
With that being said, it is extremely frustrating that the Alt-Left would take a life threatening situation and try to blame other people to further their own political agenda. At a certain point we have to come together and just debate political issues in an honest way and let the best team win.” Gibson continued.
On Facebook, the person hit is blaming Patriot Prayer for their injuries and complaining that the police “unmasked” them. So, you go to an event ( NOT held by White Supremacists, by the way), you bring a weapon, you try to disrupt the meeting, you are confronted, YOU run into the freeway without looking and it’s someone else’s fault? Maybe taking some personal responsibility for your own actions, might be a good idea.
No one was maced. No one was pushed into the freeway.
This is thought to be same person who came to the Patriot Prayer rally earlier in the month and pepper-sprayed at least 5 people.
Since they have now been “unmasked”, maybe those who had their eyes seriously injured before can get some justice.
It’s time to stop this dangerous game of trying to stop other American’s speech. Patriot Prayer members were minding their own business, holding a peaceful rally. Antifa wasn’t invited and wasn’t welcomed. (They would have been welcomed IF they would have participated or just listened rather than try to shut it down.)
Blaming others for injuries that you inflict on yourself when you are breaking the law (running into the freeway) is like a thief who blames the homeowner if they get bit by the family dog.
It isn’t smart and no one buys it.
