In two separate incidents over the weekend, an Antifa group in Portland attacked two older men in their cars after they disobeyed the group's traffic directions and tried to drive away.
Shocking cell phone video captured the moment when an elderly man drove through a crowd of black-clad protesters, who’d taken it upon themselves to direct traffic through a busy section of the city’s downtown area. Several Antifa members began screaming profanity at the man, calling him a “white supremacist” and demanding he leave.
This is the type of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live. Here is video from 6 Oct showing Antifa directing traffic in downtown & threatening people who don’t obey with violence.

Another video showed the group attacking a second man who had the audacity to ignore their directions, attacking his car with sticks, screaming profanity and jumping on top of his vehicle.
Mob rule has become the norm in parts of Portland, where local police have virtually turned a blind eye to Antifa’s escalating antics. The group was permitted to camp out in front of the city’s Immigration of Customs Enforcement building back during the summer, and has now taken to blockading streets and harassing pedestrians in the name of “fighting facism.”
