An alleged Antifa group caused a rally for a Republican candidate in Portland, Oregon to spin out into chaos over the weekend. A rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Stan Pulliam was cut short when Antifa supporters started throwing firecrackers and defacing property.
Pulliam slammed the group during a Monday interview with “Fox & Friends.”
Fox News reports:
“The city of Portland – from roses to riots. As a statewide candidate for governor, we should be able to go to the largest metropolitan community of our state and have a peaceful campaign rally,” he said.
“Of course, less than 15 minutes in, we’re greeted by Antifa, showing up with firecrackers that they’re throwing at us, paint, feces all over our campaign [signs], our campaign bus completely destroyed…”
He also weighed in on claims that Antifa is fictitious, saying that certain naysayers denied that the development took place.
“It’s unbelievable. We have video footage evidence that’s all over Twitter, all over social media, the local news has picked it up, and just like you say, they’re claiming it didn’t even happen,” he said.
Pulliam pointed to the wave of violent crime, including riots and homicides, and to a shortage of law enforcement which prompted a 20-minute wait for a 911 operator after attendees attempted to call the police.
Despite the chaotic rally, Pulliam said it serves as a prime example of why he should be elected as Oregon’s next governor.
Defund Portland till they learn how to take care of themselves.
Communist THUGS working for the Democrat (rat) Party—just like in 2020 when they did Two Billion Dollars in property damage sent 1,000 Police Officers to the hospital—as well as rapes and deaths—-YET the demon-crats want to have a stalin style SHOW TRIAL for January 6th TRUMP Supporters—real Marxists–destroying Our Border with Mexico and destroying Our ENERGY INDEPENDENCE —yet fools vote these vermin into office—-I SIMPLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND===I surmise it is because Televised news tell lies???
Solution inevitable…30 aught six, Nato .223, etc. These people need a bar of soap, and a JOB!
Better idea, follow the money and see who is paying them?
Peaceable, lawful people should return fire against such little cowards. They’re all dressed up in black masks and combat boots, throwing rocks and incendiaries. Looks like deadly assault to me. It’s time for Portlanders to defend themselves with superior force.
They attack, MOB THEM. BE CERTAIN THEY NEVER DO ANYTHING AGAIN.
McCarthy should step aside and let Jim Jordan head the Republicans and show he is a unite and not a divider!
I’ll bet anyone that antifa would not dare attack an “open carry, second amendment rally”!! If police cannot protect a candidate from a mob like them, then it’s up to us citizens to protect ourselves. Get a dozen of these bullying fascist caught, hogtied and dragged through the streets, that may give them a message we’re not gonna take it anymore!
We are all very tired of hearing and seeing about these “peaceful Protesters” because we know they are nothing else besides rioting thugs! Portland people show us that you don’t want to put up with this anymore? If you do nothing, it seems like you agree with them!
Antifascists are the REAL fascists, just like Hitler’s black shirts and brown shirts. Not for nothing do they dress in black and marinate their souls in hatred.
Why does nothing happen to these people, and why don’t they show their faces? I can’t understand, if you believe in something then own it, don’t hide behind a mask, gang up on someone, then like a snake hit and run. And why would anyone want to live or be a law enforcement officer in a city like that?
