Well, Antifa and the Burn Loot and Murder movement attempted to lynch a white man in Portland last night. If he doesn't die he's probably never going to have a full recovery.

They were doing the exact same thing they did in Charlottesville and many other recent events; blocking the roads until they see a car trying to get through and they vandalize the car, and then try to attack the driver.

Because this was an obvious lynching that was captured on video, the police are going to have to at least investigate the crime.

Police ask for help after pickup driver attacked, left unconscious in Portland

Detectives are investigating after they say a pickup driver was attacked in downtown Portland on Sunday night and left unconscious with injuries.

The assault occurred just before 10:30 p.m. near Southwest Taylor Street and Broadway. Investigators believe the driver, a man, may have been trying to help a transgender person who had some of their things stolen near Southwest Taylor and 4th Avenue, where the incident began.

The initial accident call to officers reported that protesters were chasing a white Ford truck, which had crashed, with protesters reportedly dragging the driver out of his car, according to officers. A witness before officers arrived on scene said nine or 10 people were "beating the guy," police said.

The driver after the attack was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover. Police said they are aware of video on social media showing events leading up to the assault of the driver.


The National Lawyers Guild are helping to fund the antifa/BLM street actions by paying for their bail after they get arrested. They seem to be working along side with a number of other organizations such as the The Tides Foundation.

NLG Statement on the President’s Unlawful Declaration of Antifa as a Domestic Terrorist Organization

“Trump’s declaration that Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization has no basis in fact or law and is merely an attempt to criminalize ordinary people who are exercising their right to protest,” said NLG Mass Defense Director Tyler Crawford. “The NLG condemns any such attempts by the government to interfere with the right of the people to have their voices heard in demanding justice for George Floyd and an end to racist police violence.”

The NLG will continue to oppose any attempts to exploit this crisis to repress political activism and social justice movements working to end to white supremacy. The Trump administration continues to ignore the ongoing injustice wrought on Black communities by institutional racism, including police brutality, in favor of seeking to physically or politically punish those who are part of anti-racist and anti-fascist movements. The NLG will continue to provide legal support to activists as they take to the streets to call for justice for George Floyd, from Minneapolis to Washington, D.C. and many other cities.

It figures that you'd be donating to an organization whose board and senior management were 100% white people until very recently. :roll:
Total shock as the person behind a prominent antifa Twitter account is revealed to look like a typical antifa dirtbag.

Why the hell do they all look like this?


Antifa doxer ‘AntiFash Gordon’ sued in federal lawsuit for harassment

A federal lawsuit accuses St. Lawrence University of allowing an employee and notorious Antifa doxer to use campus facilities and equipment to lead harassment and threatening campaigns against an ex-New York Daily News employee.

The lawsuit filed last week in New Jersey federal court claims that Christian Michael Exoo, a 39-year-old supervisor at the university library in Canton, N.Y. who runs the notorious Antifa Twitter account “@AntiFashGordon,” harassed the plaintiff, Daniel D’Ambly, causing him to be fired from his job as a platemaker for the paper.

“Exoo is a self-described anti-fascist, notorious doxer, and leader of Antifa, who by doxing others has acquired a great deal of notoriety and infamy,” D’Ambly’s civil complaint claims. “Exoo’s activities are well known to St. Lawrence faculty and administrators, who allow Exoo to direct the enterprise from St. Lawrence property, from his place of employment, during his normal work hours using St. Lawrence equipment and information technology.”

The suit alleges Exoo has participated in “racketeering activities through interstate communications” and that he has the “consent and approval” of SLU to recruit students. In 2017, he spoke at a campus conference where he gave instructions to students on how to investigate and dox people.

D’Ambly’s lawsuit also names St. Lawrence University, New York Daily News, Twitter, and others as co-defendants.

“Christian Exoo is a part-time employee of St. Lawrence University. It is not our practice to comment on pending legal matters," SLU spokesperson Paul Redfern told WWNY-TV in an emailed statement.

The New York Daily News allegedly fired D’Ambly after conducting an investigation into his activities following a mass online and phone call campaign initiated by Exoo. A private investigator’s report acknowledged that Exoo’s doxing was the impetus for the inquiry, the lawsuit claims. The dismissal letter read: “[Y]our choice to take these repulsive actions has now put our workplace and employees at risk of counter attacks by Antifa.”

The lawsuit says Exoo’s harassment campaign led to real-life violence where D’Ambly’s vehicle was keyed and his tires slashed at his home in South Brunswick, N.J.

Exoo—operating under the Twitter moniker “@AntiFashGordon” to hide his real identity—had disclosed the plaintiff’s personal information in a torrent of tweets in October 2018, asking his followers to “send harassing, intimidating, and threatening phone calls and tweets” to D’Ambly’s employer to extort his termination. Exoo posted a phone number for his thousands of followers to call.

Exoo gloats on Twitter: “Technically, I don’t just stalk fascists. I also get them fired, de-homed, kicked out of school, etc.” (For the record: Exoo has led a harassment campaign to get The Post Millennial editor-at-large Andy Ngo removed from Patreon based on a lie that he worked with a neo-Nazi terrorist group.)

Exoo is currently evading a permanent ban on Twitter by using a third account. Exoo’s two previous accounts, @ChrisExoo and @ChristianExoo, were permanently suspended for doxing.

Despite the popularity of Exoo’s Twitter account among Antifa militants, he has been embroiled in recent personal controversies. In December last year, Exoo was accused of blackmail, racism and predatory behaviour towards underage girls by a former friend. The friend, who is black and transgender, also accused Exoo of inappropriate touching.

In March this year, Exoo encouraged the public to steal supplies from St. Lawrence University, his place of employment, amid the coronavirus pandemic. Exoo’s father, mother and brother are also all employed by the university as academics.

    The group gathered around the town square, waiting for the arrival of what has become a new American boogeyman: antifa.

    Michael Johnson and others were certain that school buses full of radical left-wing extremists from big cities were coming to Leitchfield, Ky., where about 50 of their neighbors had gathered on the courthouse lawn to chant, “Black lives matter!” and wave signs in solidarity with the nation's surging protest movement.

    The June 10 protest ended peacefully with no sign of any antifascist activists in the town of less than 7,000 people, but Johnson and his son sat awake outside their house all night, armed with a shotgun, just in case the antifa rumors he saw circulating online were true.

    “There’s no reason not to believe it after you watch TV, what’s going on,” said Johnson, 53.

    It's a scene that has unfolded in many other cities and small towns this year, the product of fear and conflict stoked by bogus posts on social media, right-wing news outlets and even some of the nation's most powerful leaders.

    President Donald Trump has said the federal government would designate antifa as a "terrorist organization" and has blamed it for violence at protests against racial injustice and police brutality. Attorney General William Barr has claimed groups using “antifa-like tactics” fueled violent clashes in Minneapolis after the killing of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck for several minutes.

    However, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a congressional panel last Thursday that antifa is more of an ideology or a movement than an organization. While the FBI has had domestic terrorism investigations of “violent anarchist extremists, any number of whom self identify with the antifa movement," Wray noted that extremists driven by white supremacist or anti-government ideologies have been responsible for most deadly attacks in the U.S. over the past few years.

    A man suspected of fatally shooting a Trump supporter after a pro-Trump caravan in Portland, Oregon, last month had described himself in a social media post as “100 percent ANTIFA." Federal agents later shot and killed the suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, in Washington state.

    But federal arrest records of more than 300 people at protests across the country include very few obvious mentions of the word antifa. They could be hard to identify, however, because there is no domestic terrorism statute under which to charge protesters involved in violence or vandalism.

    Louisville, Ky.-based attorney David Mour has represented many protesters involved in demonstrations over the killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician who was shot by Louisville police officers when they barged into her house in the middle of the night to serve a search warrant. Protesters have occupied a square in downtown Louisville for more than three months. All along, Mour has dealt with wild rumors that antifa is somehow involved.

    “It’s constant. These people are just trying to generate fear and frenzy. They’re trying to blame all this stuff on antifa, and I’m like, ‘Who exactly is antifa? Where are they? Who are you talking about?’ It’s insane,” he said.

    Rutgers University historian Mark Bray, author of the book “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” said there are well organized, tightly knit antifa groups that have operated for years.

    “But that’s different from saying that the politics of antifa is just one single, monolithic organization, which is obviously false,” said Bray, whose book traces the history and evolution of the movement.

    Many Americans had never heard of antifa before Trump’s election and the violent clashes between far-right extremists and counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. Bray said Trump’s campaign and presidency stimulated far-right organizing and the antifascist response to it. He believes Trump and his allies are demonizing antifa for political gain.

    “The portrayal they present serves their purposes of using it as a boogeyman to rally support and to kind of redirect attention away from the legitimate grievances behind the Black Lives Matter protests,” he said.

    Adam Klein, an associate professor of communication studies at Pace University, analyzed social media posts by far-right extremists and antifascist activists leading up to the Charlottesville rally three years ago. He found antifascists have a “pretty loose” communication network.

    “You don’t get the sense online that there is an organization as much as there are some prominent (social media) accounts associated with antifa,” he said.

    Lindsay Ayling, a 32-year-old doctoral student at the University of North Carolina's flagship Chapel Hill campus, is a fixture at counterprotests against neo-Confederates and other far-right group members. They often call her “antifa,” a label she accepts “in the sense that I oppose fascism and I am willing to go and confront fascists on the streets."

    “The thing that's so dangerous about labeling anyone who is antifascist as a terrorist is that it's criminalizing thought," she said. "Not just thought, but it's criminalizing active resistance to fascism."

    Ayling said the first person to call her an antifa leader was a Florida man, Daniel McMahon, who dubbed himself “the Antifa hunter" online. McMahon was sentenced to more than three years in prison after pleading guilty in April to using social media to threaten a Black activist to deter the man from running for office in Charlottesville.

    Far-right extremists aren't the only ones who use the term against her, Ayling said. Last week, she posted a video of herself asking Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson why he and his deputies were “breaking the law” by not wearing masks at the scene of a protest in North Carolina.

    “Ma'am, why are you breaking the law? We know you're with antifa,” the sheriff responded.

    Rumors of antifa invading Leitchfield, Ky., started on Facebook and quickly spread through the community. Stephanie Ann Fulkerson, who had organized the demonstration, was stunned. She usually keeps to herself but felt strongly enough about the Black Lives Matter movement that she decided to plan something in the small town in Grayson County about 70 miles south of Louisville.

    “This is the first time I’ve really spoke up for anything. I’m a stay-at-home mom that’s very anti-social. That’s the crazy part of all this,” she said.

    As the protest got underway, residents lined up in front of businesses to guard against vandalism, some of them on motorcycles. A handful heckled the protesters. At one point, one of them stormed across the street toward the demonstration, but law enforcement restrained him.

    The buses didn’t show, but that didn’t mean everyone accepted it was just a baseless rumor. Johnson said he heard that 15 antifa members in a Winnebago were stopped in town by local residents and law enforcement and complied with a command to go home.

    Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said that didn’t happen.

    “That’s a rumor," the sheriff said. “People are pretty detailed when they make up stories.”

It is a bit odd and a bit amusing to see grown adults getting scared over people having the same beliefs as WWII soldiers.
