On June 30th 2018 Patriot Prayer held a rally and march in Portland, Oregon to promote freedom and courage. Many of us from Texas made the long journey out there to support them. The event was led by Joey Gibson, candidate for US Senate, and attended by patriots from across the nation. Once again far-left agitators, including Antifa, attempted to stop the rally by using intimidation and violence. Once again corrupt city officials refused to enforce the law. This scenario has been played out numerous times in numerous cities across the nation. Although Patriot Prayer had secured permits and worked with the city to secure the event, the Portland Police did nothing to ensure the safety of the public and protect the first amendment rights of the citizens. They reneged on a previously arranged agreement to provide security along the march route and separate the participants from the violent counter protestors. Instead, they caused those involved in the march to come into direct contact with the counter protest. This resulted in a conflict which was then used as a pretext to revoke the permit and end the march. The patriots secured a permit and voluntarily submitted to searches and limitations on what they could carry because they trusted the city to uphold its duty to protect the citizens and enforce the law. Meanwhile, Antifa was not subjected to a search and brought weapons including rocks and explosives which they threw at those participating in the march. It is only remarkable that more people were not seriously injured due to the actions of Antifa and the city government.
We are tired of antifa and other far left groups attacking conservatives and trying to shut us up. They are the real racist and fascist! We will AGAIN be out to exercise our 1st Amendment right and we will not be silenced or shut down.
