VIDEO: Antifa Commandeers Climate Change Rally, Turns It Into Attack On Police

A group of approximately 50 Antifa members hurled rocks and other projectiles at law enforcement officers.

Portland, OR – A group of approximately 50 masked Antifa members used a climate change protest as an opportunity to attack and harass law enforcement officers (video below).

The climate change rally was one of many held across the country on Friday, including Seattle, Washington, Denver, and St. Paul, FOX News reported.

But while those demonstrations were peaceful, Antifa ensured that the one held in Portland was not.

A group of masked Antifa militants “commandeered” a portion of the demonstration, and changed the group’s chant about the climate to expletive-filled anti-police chants instead, journalist Andy Ngo told FOX News on Monday.

After the rally was over, the Antifa group converged on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility, where they proceeded to hurl rocks and other projectiles at the federal officers who were protecting the facility, Ngo said.

Video footage showed the officers as they chased a portion of the group on foot down the street.

One officer’s ammunition magazine tumbled to the ground at one point, and one of the masked suspects snatched it up.

“Put it down!” one officer roared, pointing a less-lethal weapon at the suspect.

The Antifa member immediately dropped the magazine and backed away with his hands in the air, the video showed.

Another clip showed a young, unmasked male as he stood just inches from one of the officer’s faces.

“How tall are you?” he asked the officer, who told him to back away from him.

“F--k you, pig,” the man retorted. “Shut the f--k up.”

The suspect immediately began portraying himself as a victim as a second officer rushed in.

“Stop threatening me!” he whined, as the officer marched behind him to the corner of the block.

The suspect’s bravado returned soon as the officer turned away, and he began calling the officer a “Gestapo piece of s--t,” the video showed.

“Class-traitor scumbags!” he added.

Police made multiple arrests throughout the day, Ngo told FOX News.

One of them was Jacob Jepson, who was found with a slew of tools and weapons, including brass knuckles, an expandable baton, a hammer, and two knives.

“He has a large antifa tattoo on his neck & expresses violent far-left views on social media, often including references to being armed w/a gun,” Ngo tweeted.

“What’s concerning about this to me is that this movement is able to recruit younger and younger people,” the journalist told FOX News. “I mean, any of these masked people are really children…they’ve bought in to this narrative that the police are evil and they have no hesitation in not just showing disrespect to law enforcement, but hatred and trying to actively get in the way of the arrests."

The Police should have just shot them on site.

Andy Ngo, the Asian white supremacist who was recently called out for being involved in a conversation about how to commit violence in public, then lied about it?

Yeah, he fits right in with Fox News.

Well the so called bad percentage of cops that the left says is so bad, let's make a antifa swat team with them. I'd like to sit back and watch that confrontation.

Anyone involved with antifa in any way needs to be shot dead! Portland and other liberal run anti-American cities will continue to get worse every day until the police actually do their jobs, which is to PROTECT & SERVE. How are you protecting innocent citizens by letting these anti-American haters attack innocent people???

I thought the Portland mayor said he was going to crack down on this lawlessness. That didn't last long...or at all.

“Class traitor Scumbags!” Mating call of the bored privileged student who is desperately failing at convincing himself and all others that he is more than a cupcake throwing a hissyfit. On that day most “workers” would have been...like...at work.

You know, everyone, except maybe Portland, has talked on the federal level of getting this organization labeled as a domestic terrorist organization.

I "thought" we were the greatest nation on earth. If that's supposed to be the case, why haven't our balls and backbone grown big enough to handle these posers?

As soon as I say antifa in the headline, I immediately thought portland. Those little fags aren’t so tough up close when confronted.

If the Democratic Party and left Liberals really cared about America they would stop endorsing and protecting these ANTIFA Terrorists. They are the Socialist Fascist. They chant hate for America. They deface, tear and burn our American Flag. They push hate of our Law Enforcement and Military. They and the Democratic Party and Liberals think that our 1st Amendment is only for them. There anti-Christian and anti-Israel. There pro-Socialist/Communist. ALL ANTIFA'S SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF OUR STREETS AND ARRESTED. There are to many to put them in our prisons. They should be detained in the FEMA Camps heavily guarded to wait there court dates. They have been playing all of this hatred for 3+ years and enough is enough. I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHO IS REALLY FRONTING ALL OF THE MONEY TO PAY THESE TOTAL UNEDUCATED DEGENERATE MORONS.

A Back the Blue Community Militia comprised of combat veterans needs to be organized, trained, and deployed in front of the police. Responsible hands need not be gentle. The politicians have handcuffed our police, so let's return to the ancient doctrine of"hue and cry" and let slip the dogs of war on these pukes. BTW, these are not "social justice warriors" - combat veterans have earned the title of warrior. These street scum are violent, criminal political activists. Nothing more and nothing less.

ANTIFA is a DOMESTIC TERRORIST GROUP. We as a Nation do NOT negotiate with terrorists, neither abroad or own our own soil. ANTIFA should be treated with that same moniker, and taken by force.

Why is it taking so long to designate this group of assholes as a Domestic Terrorist Group. They all need to be arrested and locked up for a very, very long time.

Unfortunately for the Antifa punks, one of them is going to reveal his fireman to the police and the police are going to kill his sorry ass. Half of these female boys will run home to mommy and never return.

This two little white boys couldn’t beat their way out of a wet paper bag.

I couldn’t be a cop. I’d beat the shit out of those smart ass spoiled antifa brats.

Antifa prevents elderly woman from crossing the street...

It should be a serious crime to prevent another person's freedom of movement without just cause. E.g. block a highway, go to jail.
