The complete text from your first article:
Rocks and bottles flew through the air in Portland, Oregon, Saturday afternoon as a self-described libertarian group clashed with antifa counter-protesters.
Police in heavy riot gear declared Patriot Prayer's rally in downtown Portland a civil disturbance and ordered everyone to leave, The Oregonian reported, after demonstrators were seen hurling projectiles into the crowds.
"There will be a significant law enforcement presence in the area of the demonstration due to past threats and acts of violence," Portland police wrote in a statement earlier Saturday afternoon. "Persons attending any of the events should not bring any weapons or items that can be used as weapons to any of the events."
Groups on opposites sides of a downtown street began hurling objects at each other.
One side was chanting “USA!” "USA!" while the others chanted "fascists retreat," CNN reported.
Portland police posted photos online of the weapons and objects seized from the crowds, many of which included the Confederate battle flag.
Please nite the bolded phrase. It clearly says that both sides engaged in violence. This directly contradicts your claim that there were no reports of Patriot Prayer and Antifa clashing directly.
Yes, my original post was partly to demonstrate how that article by the MSM(D) was a lie, that on-the-spot reports were that the violence was purely between AntiFA and the police. As it turned out, that report was a lie in detail because there was no violence between the two groups during the march, though there were some scattered clashes after the march ended and both groups broke up. And there was no reported violence between Patriot Prayer and the police at all, those marchers were actually cheering on the police that were protecting them.
And AntiFA was at it again this weekend, attacking law enforcement and the media when they were kept away from their preferred targets.
- First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a communist.

Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
