Trump Supporter Gunned Down in Portland, Protester Says She's 'Not Sorry a F****** Fascist Died Tonight'


On an unnamed street in Portland, Oregon, an anonymous female protester takes the bullhorn.

“If you’re not angry, you’re not with me!” she screams. “Everybody needs to realize what’s going on in these streets.”

A crowd offers support. Then she gets the biggest cheer of the short speech: “I am not sad that a f—ing fascist died tonight!”

That “fascist” is an as-yet officially unidentified man who was wearing a hat with the insignia of Patriot Prayer  — a Pacific Northwest-based right-wing group usually described as far-right in its bent. The group had been part of a pro-Trump counterdemonstration on Saturday night during another night of rioting in the Oregon metropolis.

Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson confirmed that the individual “was a good friend and supporter of Patriot Prayer,” according to KGW-TV.

“They feel the same way about you and me,” Human Events editor Ian Miles Chong tweeted along with the video. Patriot Prayer is a particularly controversial group, but it’s not difficult to see how this wouldn’t be a takeaway.

Just the facts, though, as reported by The New York Times: “The pro-Trump rally drew hundreds of trucks full of supporters into the city. At times, Trump supporters and counterprotesters clashed on the streets, with people shooting paintball guns from the beds of pickup trucks and protesters throwing objects back at them.

“A video that purports to be of the shooting, taken from the far side of the street, showed a small group of people in the road outside what appears to be a parking garage. Gunfire erupts, and a man collapses in the street.”

Video shows how things transpired from a number of angles.

Those in the media who tried to minimize the problems in Portland also didn’t look too good on Saturday night.

Reports are still very sketchy, including details regarding the victim and suspect. It’s not clear that antifa groups had anything to do with it.

However, Multnomah County Commission Chairwoman Deborah Kafoury, a progressive Democrat, according to the twice-weekly Portland Tribune, knew enough to know what the real issue here was: The murder of this man might make protesters look bad and make President Donald Trump look good before the November election, particularly given this was just days after Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler very publicly refused federal help from the White House.

“This tragedy will be used to justify escalating violence,” Kafoury said in a statement. “It will be used to paint an entire movement with a broad and misleading brush. And sadly, it will be used by the occupant of the White House to deepen divisions and fear.”

If a politician wanted to “deepen divisions and fear,” you could do worse than take a lesson from Deborah Kafoury.

One doesn’t need to defend Patriot Prayer to offer sympathies to a man killed during political violence in a city where officials have steadfastly refused to deal with a violent element among left-leaning protesters.

This must stop. We don’t know all the facts yet, but what we do know is this: A human being died Saturday — not a fascist.
