Amid raucous protesting by Antifa in downtown Portland, Oregon, leftist activists mercilessly beat two men attending a counter-protest.
The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo has more:
One of the victims, identified by commentator and journalist Michelle Malkin as John Blum, suffered a bloodied face after he was beaten with a crowbar. The other man, identified as Adam Kelly, had his head split open by criminal Antifa members, suffering a concussion; he needed 25 stitches.
Blum and Kelly were in Pioneer Courthouse Square to attend a demonstration for the “Him Too” movement, which purports to raise awareness for male sexual assault victims and men falsely accused of sex crimes. The men apparently stepped into the Antifa chaos trying to “help a gay man in a sundress being chased down the street,” according to Malkin.
“While John was being pummeled by the mob in the center, Adam was struck in the head with nunchucks, metal water bottles, some sort of metal rod, and fists,” Malkin reported on Sunday. “John was sprayed with mace and blinded. He was led away as blood dripped down his face, then dragged to a sidewalk. Another observer notes that one of Adam’s attackers appears to wield something like a sock and padlock.” This man, Adam Kelly was attacked in Portland by ANTIFA the domestic terrorist organization pic.twitter.com/xQmzyHIA0b

Noting that the Antifa criminals were masked, as per usual, Blum told Malkin he would reveal his identity and show his face: “I’m not afraid,” he said. Kelly, too, agreed to come forward.
Adam verified that the pix @Rambobiggs posted of his bloddy, gashed head are him at the ER. His CT scan was thankfully clear. Adam ended up with a total of 25 stitches.https://t.co/klqkruauVH /e pic.twitter.com/t5eqqfIK2M
