VIDEO: 6 Antifa Arrested After Attacks At #HimToo Rally, Mugshots Unmask Them

Masked protesters armed with projectiles taunted police and chased members of the Patriot Prayer organization.

Portland, OR – Violent confrontations broke out in Portland on Saturday as antifa attacked attendees of a #HimToo event in the city’s federal plaza.

Just days after the city commissioners voted down a proposal by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler that would have given the mayor the ability to set restrictions and conditions on protests by groups with a history of violence, the city exploded yet again, The Oregonian reported.

The #HimToo rally, organized by Patriot Prayer-affiliated Haley Adams, had a permit for Terry Schrunk Plaza, and antifa set up a counter-protest across the street.

Officers from Federal Protective Services sought to keep the group demonstrating on the federal plaza safe as antifa raged across the street in Chapman Square, The Oregonian reported.

The Portland Police Bureau shut down half of Chapman Square to create a barrier zone between the two groups, but that didn’t stop black-masked and helmeted antifa members from attacking attendees of the #HimToo rally and journalists attempting to document the protests.

"The Portland Police Bureau spent considerable time planning for today's demonstration and counter demonstration," Portland Police Bureau Chief Danielle Outlaw said in a press statement afterwards. "We used significant resources and attempted to keep opposing groups apart, both when they were in the parks and as they traveled through downtown. Our goal was to keep all people in the community safe."

Six antifa were arrested during the violent confrontations that exploded during and after the event.

Portland police officers tried to keep the two groups separate, but that became much more difficult once the planned event ended and conservative attendees moved from the permitted area inside Strunk Plaza.

As the #HimToo attendees tried to leave, antifa went after them individually, trying to corner and trap people.

In videos captures by independent journalist Andy Ngo, antifa were literally chasing people as they tried to leave the demonstrations. No police officers intervened or even appeared to be nearby.

One of the videos showed a large antifa group had backed up a few members of the other group in a doorway.

An enraged woman with neon purple hair spewed hate and profanities at the men in a shrieking voice as Ngo filmed the scene.

The video showed 19-year-old Hannah McClintock spitting on the men and repeatedly striking them with her hands and fists before Portland police intervened.

McClintock was ultimately arrested for harassment, according to the police press statement.

As the situation escalated, police said that antifa members began throwing bottles, smoke bombs, and lit flares at officers and members of the Patriot Prayer group, The Oregonian reported.

That’s when the Portland Police Bureau upgraded the situation to “a civil disturbance” and began pushing back.

According to the police press statement, Portland officers used Stinger Grenades and Rubber Ball Blast Grenades to help disperse the crowd, as antifa grew increasingly more violent.

At one point, Patriot Prayer members who were trying to leave the area became trapped inside a parking garage, with antifa waiting for them at the exits.

Portland police blocked garage entrances and stairwells until the Patriot Prayer people left in an effort to quell violence and keep the two groups apart.

Despite numerous attacks on people and journalists, officers were only able to make six arrests during the protests, mainly because it was so difficult for victims to identify their assailants hiding behind masks.

In addition to McClintock, officers arrested 25-year-old Ruben A Delahuerga, 68-year-old Betsy Toll, 33-year-old Elizabeth L. Cheek, and 35-year-old Brittany N. Frost for interfering with a peace officer, according to the Portland Police Bureau press statement.

Gary Fresquez, 52, was arrested for disorderly conduct and two counts of interfering with a peace officer.

They need to ban masks at protests.

This is the product of shutting down mental institutions in America. They are free to roam the country until they commit a serious enough crime to put them away for a long time. Frankly, if you think you turn in to a superhero behind a mask, you probably need to get an evaluation.

Pushing for violent confrontations! What in the hell is the matter with these morons! I guess thier feeling bullet proof because one side is pushing for civility and Antifa wants a confrontation! They may just eventually get it!

Time to start spraying anything wearing a mask with the delightful aroma of eau de skunk.

Repeating my Portland mantra, Portland is an unredeemable sewer. That said, what on earth would be wrong with creating a criminal misdemeanor offense (under limited circumstances, such as public demonstrations) for wearing a mask? Oh, Portland........Portland. That's why....Of course.

I’d like to see 100 Hells Angels show up to one of these antifa protests holding signs. I doubt the pencil neck, skinny jeans-wearing freaks would charge at them. It’d be all ball peen hammers and bike chains. Lol

Well Portland, you asked for it, you keep electing the same morons that allow this. Get used to it. More on the way. If Portland were a country...they would be known as "third world".

Until an investigation finds out who is paying these thugs and arrests them it will continue and grow!

@LEO0301 I totally agree with you but the Looney libtards and MSM would have a field day screaming " Police brutality ". The Portland Police Department is being held hostage by the government officials and not allowing LEO'S to do the job they were hired for. I also would like to see Antifa go up against 100 Hells Angels because we all know the outcome of that one. Until the liberal Loni are voted out of office so that our LEO'S can do their job effectively this problem is going to continue to grow.

Absolutely disgusting how these Antifa soy boys act.

Why do we allow chicken shit people like this to “protest?” Wearing masks and being disorderly? If you want to protest, then fine, but allowing masks to be worn in public, for no reason, just heightens their edge, and gives them a sense of anonymity to do things they normally wouldn’t do. To me these are just punks doing what they can to cause disruption, and with no cause whatsoever. That’s not what the first amendment right is.

Take their masks off and arrest them. Problem solved. Why allow these anarchists to fight in the streets? It's the liberal way!

SUGGESTIONS:

Outlaw the masks and less protesters will feel as "bold".

Using water cannons in cold weather will surely make them feel quite unwelcome.

They will then disperse, go home and Mommy can make some chicken soup for these pitiful cowards.

Looking at the mug shots I would say the nerd and the fat boy were trying to get laid, one man just looking for meth, and other a gay activist, the girl with purple hair well that speaks for itself and grandma was off her meds and got lost.
