VIDEO: Portland Antifa Beat, Rob Journalist, Then They Go After Cops

Antifa protesters attacked police, civilians, and at least one journalist in downtown Portland on Saturday.

Portland, OR – Multiple citizens and police officers were injured and three people were arrested during violent protests led by black-masked antifa that took over Portland on Saturday.

Most of the city’s streets were shut down or blocked on Saturday as roving bands of antifa, clad in black and wearing hoods or helmets with black face masks, attacked police, conservative demonstrators, and at least one journalist.

Separate demonstrations led by different factions had been planned in several places in the city, but by 3 p.m. the violence and mayhem had escalated to the point where the Portland Police Bureau was forced to declare a civil disturbance and unlawful assembly, The Oregonian reported.

Protesters threw eggs, milkshakes, and other projectiles at the police officers tasked with keeping peace during the demonstrations.

Police said some of the milkshakes that were thrown contained “a substance similar to quick-drying cement,” The Oregonian reported.

Quick-drying cement can cause chemical burns, even after it's washed off.

Officers in crowd-control gear lined up to shut down passage on street and police ordered the crowd to disperse through a loudspeaker and threatened to use crowd control tactics on those who did not leave.

During the chaos of the day, journalist Andy Ngo was attacked by a mob several times.

Although he said he reported the initial incidences to police when they happened, it wasn’t until after he was beaten and bloody, with his camera gear stolen, that he felt police were taking the attacks seriously.

Ngo has covered numerous antifa riots and has become a bit of a lightning rod for the far left in Portland.

Ngo was filming the crowd when he was attacked from multiple directions by masked antifa and his GoPro camera was stolen.

Ngo was able to get clear of the crowd and talk with officers, and then was transported to the emergency room for treatment.

Medics at the protests treated eight people, including three police officers, for injuries, The Oregonian reported. Several people were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment of their injuries.

Police made only three arrests during the violent protest on June 29.

The Oregonian reported that 23-year-old Gage Halupowski was charged with second-degree assault, assault of a police officer, resisting arrest, and interfering with a police officer.

Additionally, 23-year-old Maria DeHart was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and harassment and 21-year-old James Stocks was charged with harassment.

When will Portland cops be allowed to enforce laws generally, and lock up these thugs?

I can't tell which of those mugs is the woman and which is the man. I guess it probably changes day to day.

Andy Ngo is a super-left leaning journalist and one of the only ones with the intellectual honesty to call out his own side. I listened to an interview with him on the Ben Shapiro Show and he's a great guy. I'm sorry that happened to him.

I've never been to the Pacific Northwest, I've seen pictures and it's beautiful. Unfortunately I think my USMC license plate would get me attacked. They don't seem to have met many Marines up there... we are not the milkshake throwing sort and OC-spray is just hot sauce to flavor MRE's. They're going to get the business end of a Marine Rifleman one day. Bad day for them.

So, a bunch of white people in masks attack an Asian reporter they don't like, but the media is pushing Antifa as the "good guys"?

Just because you label yourself a good guy does not make it so.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! These individuals have no respect for anyone. When will the government finally allow our LEO to defend themselves? How many officers have to be hurt? How many officers have to die?? How many lives have to be ripped away from thier families and our communities? I am so enraged that I'm holding back tears. I'm from Oregon and this makes me sick. Makes me ashamed to be an Oregonian. Please for the love of GOD someone stop this madness. Every group of people have bad apples...just like police do. But this group...they are ALL BAD. They need to be shut down and stopped once and for all. I hope that President Trump's signs a bill that allows LEO to take theses terrorist down. That's what they are. Please be safe officers...watch each other's backs.

They need to get out the night sticks and start busting heads before it ever reaches this stage. Portland PD in handcuffed by city government.

Enough is enough! Law enforcement needs to treat ANTIFA like organized crime. Get the ones they apprehended and find out all their contacts. Get the NSA to connect the dots via backtrack cell phone communication between all of them. (yes they can do that)

This group needs to be designated a terrorist group, and any politician that supports them in anyway needs to be held liable for their actions, and charged with aiding and abetting. Enough of this el toro poo poo!

bunch of basement dwelling coffee barista pussies and cowards. Trump and AG need to implement a federal law prohibiting wearing a mask at any protest . If ignored subject to immediate arrest

Pepper balls are very effective at crowd dispersal. Portland should know that by now since they have all the nut jobs living out there who like to protest over everything and nothing

Please don't confuse these cops in Portland with the rest of us in blue in this country. I would tell them to stick my badge before I sat on my hands while punks like this destroyed property, assaulting citizens, or attacking me and my fellow officers because of the actions of cowardly politicians.

Why does Portland allow this to happen? Stupid question wasn't it......

It's been a long time coming. I have been fighting left wing extremists since the 80s. With age came family and responsibilities like so many others whom in the absence of such would be at every one of these events, unless and until law enforcement are permitted to protect themselves and the relatively small numbers of conservatives who attend these sewage summits in Portland. Like so many others, i have watched from inaugurarion day, as Antifa and cohorts have made the incredibly stupid decision to LEGITIMIZE violence in the political arena. Hmmmm. Anyone know who prevailes in the Weimar Republic when violence was legitimized by the communists. Once the right mobilized and organized due to similar policies that interfered with law enforcment's ability to deal with the communists, huge street fights with participants ranging in the thousands became the norm. And any of you who know your history are well aware of how that turned out for the communists. They were smashed in the streets by the same violence they legitimized in the political arena. And the far right were swept into power. Eventually absolute power. And the same political intolerance at the core of what Antifa espouses today combined with the same violence in the political arena legitimized by Antifa was used to literally liquidate the communists in the Weimar Republic. In any event, having watched the violence escalate and expecting it to peak once Trump wins 2020, either the government will wake the fuck up and allow law enforcement to do their job, as well as enact measures against this domestic terrorist group, or, as certain as I am that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, co conservatives will no longer tolerate what had been transpiring. We have the numbers and everything else necessary to mobilize, organize and liquidate the scum. They best pray the government handles it. Because if conservatives like myself have to heed the call and experience a major life interruption away from family and march to Portland and the other beehives of Antifa violence (eg. Berkeley), you better believe we will be thorough and show no mercy, with a clear conscience, as it was Antifa who legitimized violence and intolerance. They have no right to complain and will reap what they've sewn.

I encourage LEO'S caught-up in this insanity to blatantly disregard these stand-down orders and do the job they know is required to handle these situations. Only carry out lawful orders of these idiots. Keep in mind these same idiots disregard laws themselves all the time!

Antifa needs to be listed as a terrorist group and treated as such. If they want to protest peacefully, fine. Come to a rally armed, regardless of what is being used as a weapon and your face is covered, you've become a terrorist to this country. We have the right to defend ourselves from our enemies. Both foreign AND domestic!

Antifa, BLM, Jesse Jackson, Al sharpton, those who cause riot under the guise of protests should all be listed as domestic terrorist groups and supporters, and treated as such.

Portland leadership is largely to blame for this shit. The PC attitude of City leaders is making Portland a very dangerous place to be. Not the place to be a line cop for sure. It seems to be an Oregon thing; Portland, Eugene, Ashland, any excuse for demonstration and the Antifa element comes to play. Doesn't seem to happen east of the Cascades....

Why hasn't this domestic terrorist group been shut down. The FBI and the military need to get on these assholes. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

The Portland Police Bureau is down 128 officers and desperately needs to fill those positions. People don't want to work there anymore because of the lack of support from the city council and mayors over the last several years. Who can blame them? So they have lowered the standards. Now officers need to have only a high school diploma or a GED and tattoos on the neck and face are permitted. If they would support them and allow them to do their job, there wouldn't be a problem!

I hate those who are far left and politicians who believe a hands-off approach to dealing with thugs is the right way to handle mob rules. Like children, give them and inch and they will take a mile.

Time to start arresting, charging and giving at least 6 months in jail and a few thousand in fines to anybody who shows up covering their face to protest. People who cover their face are not there for a "peaceful protest", lock them up as they get off the Soros paid for buses.

Antifa should be treated as a criminal organization and it's members as criminal conspirators. Untie the hands of the cops to prevent felony assaults!

The problems with non-enforcement of the law by the Portland Police Bureau are a direct result of orders from the mayor and city council. Don't think for a New York minute that those cops don't WANT to lock up those thugs but they risk their livelihoods if they do and have to use any sort of force to do it. For the individual police officers to do what they know must be done and blatantly disregard direct orders means jeopardizing their livelihoods and that employment is what keeps their families fed, clothed, and roofs over their heads. If the people of Portland want law and order to prevail on their streets there needs to be a clean sweep of the entire hierarchy of their city government and replacement of the mayor and city council by some people with common sense.

An announcement before these protests that lethal force will be used and to stay away then when they show up use that lethal force. Anyone who just shows up, including news media, will be subject to that lethal force. Maybe they would think twice before doing it again. My vote would be for a machine gun.

The Portland PD should be hanging their heads in shame. I don't give a fuck who told them to stand down. When your citizens are being savagely attacked like this and you stand by and do nothing, you're a disgrace to the profession. Just following orders...absolutely sickening.

They’re not some support group they’re terrorist so all that should be asked is why they aren’t arrested to begin with. The Legal Industry is the cancer once again here.
