Oregon antifa activist sentenced to nearly six years for cracking man’s skull

An Oregon antifa activist was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison for using an expandable baton to crack the skull of another man at a June melee pitting right-wing activists against protesters from the left-wing anarchist group. Gage Halupowski, 24, of Oregon City received 70 months after pleading guilty to second-degree assault in connection with the June 29 attack on Adam Kelly in Portland. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said that as Mr. Kelly moved away from the crowd, “law enforcement witnessed a person, later identified as Halupowski, run up behind Mr. Kelly and strike him on the top of the head with an expandable metal baton.” “This was a powerful strike to the head,” said the Saturday press release. Mr. Kelly, who was shown on video being kicked, sprayed and struck by masked black-clad activists, said on Facebook that he suffered a concussion and needed 25 staples to close gashes on his head. At least eight people, including conservative journalist Andy Ngo, were injured as hundreds of protesters, including those affiliated with Rose City Antifa, descended on downtown Portland to counter a rally by a few dozen right-wing activists. Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Melissa Marrero said the “sound of the blow was sickening and caused people who heard it to gasp.” “The intentionality of Mr. Halupowski was extremely egregious and the injuries to Mr. Kelly could have been much worse,” she said in a statement. Defense attorney Edward Kroll said his client “did a very terrible thing and made a horrible choice,” but argued the sentence was excessive, which he attributed to Oregon’s mandatory-minimum law, Measure 11. “My take on the case is, yes, prison time was almost certainly warranted in this case,” Mr. Kroll told The Washington Times. “But I also think that sending a 24-year-old with no history away for at least 4-1/2 to five years, if not more — I think that’s too harsh in this particular circumstance.” He said Halupowski was sentenced to “70 months soft,” which means he will be eligible for earned time off for good behavior and the possibility for transitional leave. Prosecutors considered a first-degree assault charge, which would have carried a sentence of up to 90 months, although it would have been more difficult to prove, he said. “He’s a kid who made a really, really dumb decision, and he got caught up in the political back-and-forth,” Mr. Kroll said. “And that’s no excuse for what he did, certainly. This was a conscious choice that he made, and he’s paying the price for it.” No arrests have been made in the attack on Mr. Ngo, who was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage after activists struck him and hurled “milkshakes” at him as he walked away.

And that’s “milkshakes” in quotation marks because they weren’t milkshakes at all.  We understand they were really liquid concrete, which was VERY heavy and caused severe injury to Mr. Ngo.  We’re glad to see at least one of these Antifa losers get caught, charged, and found guilty for a crime.  Antifa is a brazen domestic terrorist organization, and needs to be treated as such.  Even President Trump has considered labeling the organization a domestic terrorist organization.  Gage is a punk and a loser, and frankly got off easy.  Glad he’s behind bars for several years, and we wish Mr. Kelly a speedy recovery.

Portland mayor stands by decision to allow Antifa to block traffic, hassle motorists

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C. Ngo showed protesters, including members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, blocking an intersection and attempting to direct traffic at while officers on motorcycle watched from a block away. At one point, the activists chased down 74-year-old Kent Houser after he made a right turn against their wishes, pounding on his silver Lexus and breaking a window. The car sustained thousands of dollars in damage, he told the Oregonian. Even so, Mr. Wheeler insisted that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.” Demonstrators did not obtain a permit before holding the Oct. 6 march to protest the death of Patrick Kimmons, a 27-year-old black man who was shot and killed Sept. 30 by police. The shooting is under investigation. The mayor has been accused of taking a kid-gloves approach to the protests that routinely roil the liberal enclave, such as the summer occupation of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building, which saw Portland police refuse to assist unless federal officers were in physical danger. “This is the kind of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live,” tweeted Mr. Ngo. Rioting broke out Saturday night as Antifa activists brawled with protesters who turned out for a “flash march for law and order,” organized the right-tilting group Patriot Prayer.Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) is garbage, and a spectacular hypocrite…who doesn’t care about the good, law-abiding citizens of Portland in the least.  He has the nerve to call for an “investigation” into what happened with the Portland PD allowing Antifa to terrorize citizens…when it was he who ordered the cops to do nothing!  Some enterprising journalist should ask Mr. Wheeler, on camera, if he “should investigate” himself for knowingly, willingly, allowing a domestic terrorist organization to control the streets of Portland, and terrorizing its citizens…while he ordered his cops to just back and watch.  Of course, that would mean journalists actually doing their jobs and not being partisan hacks making excuses with Democrat politicians they’re trying to protect.  Let’s be honest..  The citizens elected this idiot Mayor.  So, that’s on them.  Hopefully they’ll wake up the next time he’s up for re-election, and vote for the other guy/gal.  Imagine a Republican mayor in Portland…    There have been crazier thing..

Crowder confronts Antifa activist who ‘wanted a piece’ of him: ‘Your wish is my command’

An Antifa activist known as “Slytherin” recently got more than he bargained for when his violent fantasy to meet CRTV’s Steven Crowder came true. Beer went flying through the air and a police report was filed in Dallas after the “Louder with Crowder” host tracked down the man whose online rhetoric includes “punching Nazis” and the desire to kill “every member of ICE.” Mr. Crowder and his crew originally planned to confront the man during a planned protest against white supremacy. The event was scrapped due to weather, but he was able to anonymously set up a meeting at a local beer garden. “Your wish is my command,” the comedian, dressed as a genie, said during the confrontation published Tuesday on YouTube. “S—! Go f— yourself, you piece of s—,” the man said while throwing his beer in Mr. Crowder’s face. Mr. Crowder then asked what, specifically, the Antifa activist meant when he wrote online: “Holy s—. I’ve wanted a piece of Crowder for a long time.” Other social media posts included a $500 offer to kill members of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “Take it down. Take down the threats,” the conservative pundit said. “Take down the offers to pay people for killing other people and that will be it. But if not, we’re going to file this with the police. OK?” “Good,” the activist replied while scurrying off. “I’m sure they’re going to be thrilled to see killing ‘pigs,’ $500 a head for ICE. Come on, man. Here’s your chance. Everyone’s going to see this: future people hiring you, members of ICE, police officers,” Mr. Crowder countered. The host then provided viewers with evidence of a local police report: case number 58878395023. “As always our first choice is civil discourse, but if you cross the line into violence or if you call for the physical harm of others: I will find you, I will report you, I will confront you, and I will shame you,” Mr. Crowder concluded. The episode racked up over 380,000 views in less than 24 hours.

Hopefully there will be a LOT more..  People need to see this, and the kind of people Antifa really are..  Click on the text above to see a video of this confrontation.  Kudos to Steven for calling out this bed-wetting loser.  Outstanding!     🙂

Analysis: For CNN, anyone on the left is ‘anti-hate’ — even violent masked mayhem-driving thugs

Apparently CNN thinks violent leftists can’t be “hate groups.” How else to explain the network downplaying the violent actions of Antifa, a group the Obama administration determined were perpetrators of “domestic terrorist violence?” That’s exactly what we saw with CNN’s coverage of the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C., this Sunday. About 40 white nationalists left their parents’ basements to gather in the nation’s capital on the anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riot. This time, the racists were dramatically outnumbered by 200 violent and masked Antifa anarchists. Antifa behaved as they always have—violently. Fox News reported, “Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media…” Media covered the violence in real time on social media. There is film of the violence. Peaceful demonstrators captured the violence on cell phone video and posted attacks on the police and media for the world to see. Americans have watched for years now as Antifa has attacked members of the media, police and even innocent bystanders. The increase of violence so alarmed the Obama administration that “’Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as ‘antifa’ had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,’ according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents,” as Politico reported in September 2016. Yet this weekend, the mask-wearing thugs – their violence well-documented for everyone to see – were actually described by CNN as an “anti-hate” group. That’s right. A CNN screen banner during coverage of the violence announced, “Anti-hate groups dramatically outnumber white supremacists in DC.” Apparently, for CNN, you can throw things at cops and attack journalists but as long as you’re on the left-wing hate-Trump end of the political spectrum that’s some A-OK anti-hate expression going on out there. This is one of the reasons Americans have lost trust in mainstream media. They aren’t asking for news with which they agree all the time, they simply want the actual news. Gallup reported in 2016 “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.” In CNN’s case, the American public see a previously respected news organization abandon its duty to report the news in order to promote the fiction that Americans are divided and President Trump is at fault. That’s the bottom line here—there is such an investment by legacy media to cast the president as a racist, and dividing the American people as a result, that even an event as clear as this had to be manipulated to fit that narrative. The actual news is this: the average American could get more people at a backyard barbeque or poker game than the racists managed to organize this weekend, even with nonstop national news coverage. And 200 violent anarchists used it as yet another opportunity to put on masks, riot, and chant slogans about evil America and capitalism. A divided America this does not make, however the media chooses to cover it. It was a pathetic gathering of irrelevant malcontents spewing hateful messages that Americans reject en masse, but desperate for the attention they knew the mainstream media would give them. For CNN, it also showed their desperation to mold it into their latest Trump-hating narrative about an America they imagine and loathe. The good news is, Americans no longer allow other people to feed them a false reality. We’re told the nation is divided by race. Yet, African-American support for the president has doubled in the last year, from 15 percent in 2017 to 29 percent now, according to Rasmussen. In a recent Harvard Harris poll, Hispanic support for the president increased 10 points. This is happening because in real life everyone’s lives are improving due to the president’s policies. But CNN needed to frame a clearly hate-filled event in a way that confirmed their fiction of racism stoked by President Trump. Here is the irony: CNN cast as “anti-hate” a group designated by the Obama administration as dangerous and violent – and they did it because they can’t see past their own hatred of Trump and anyone who voted for him.

Exactly!!  And well said, Tammy.  NY Times best-selling author, and radio talk-show host Tammy Bruce was the author of that spot-on analysis.  Excellent!!   🙂

Antifa members in Berkeley smash windows of US Marine Corps recruiting office during protest

An Antifa protest in Berkeley turned violent Sunday when one masked group member sucker-punched a detractor and other agitators smashed the windows at a Marine Corps recruiting post, cellphone video showed. Authorities arrested 20 people during the dueling California demonstrations between Antifa and individuals affiliated with the so-called “alt-right.” Three people suffered minor injuries after a group of “extremists” threw “explosives” — believed to be fireworks and flares — at police and the Alameda County Sheriff’s officers. No members of law enforcement were hurt. In a series of photos posted to Twitter by filmmaker Ford Fischer, members of Antifa can be seen smashing the windows of the U.S. Marines Corps recruiting office on Shattuck Avenue. “No police were around as the black bloc traveled down the street, and a handful used hammers to smash the windows of Shattuck Ave US Marine Corps Recruiting office,” Fischer wrote in a tweet. He added: “After I filmed the antifa break the Marine Corps office window and throw a torch into a dumpster, one of them called a few over to confront me. They basically told me to leave, implying attack if I didn’t. I left. ‘Get the f— back. Cops aren’t here. They won’t help you.” Besides the damage to the Marine Corps post, Berkeley police also said “an extremist element among a large group” damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires. The group also set fires in trash bins, which were extinguished quickly. Officials did not identify the “extremist element.” The incident began percolating days earlier when two groups announced plans for a “No to Marxism” rally at the city’s Civic Center Park, an announcement that prompted plans for a “Sweep Out The Fascists” march. A counter-rally drew hundreds of people downtown. City officials said neither group had sought or obtained a permit for their respective rallies. On Friday, police issued rules prohibiting masks and items that could be used as weapons. Police said the list of banned items at Civic Center and Ohlone parks included metal pipes, baseball bats, glass bottles, pepper spray, knives or daggers, shields and slingshots, KTVU reported. Police also banned people from wearing masks, scarves or bandannas or anything covering their faces except for religious or medical reasons. Multiple videos taken of the demonstrations, however, showed several people — mostly Antifa-aligned — wearing masks. Sunday’s protests in California came one day after police in Portland, Ore. clashed with demonstrators. Protesters aligned with Patriot Prayer and an affiliated group, the Proud Boys, met in a park at a rally organized by their group leader, Joey Gibson. But they were met by Antifa protesters carrying signs saying “Nazis go home” and “Alt right scum not welcome in Portland.” Police reportedly ordered the counter-protesters to disperse, then moved in behind a volley of stun grenades. One of the rounds hit a counter-protester in the head, becoming embedded in his helmet and injuring him, reports said. One woman was taken to a hospital after being hit in the arm and chest with a “flash-bang” grenade. Another video showed an Antifa member wearing all black sucker punching someone as he was having a heated conversation on a sidewalk. At one point, authorities deployed “flash bang” devices to break up the feuding parties. Long sticks and homemade shields were confiscated, the AP reported.

Antifa is really just a bunch of suburban, white, skinny, millennial guys who still have peach fuzz on their face, and probably live at home.  You know the type.  What a bunch of self-righteous losers and cowards.  Hey you Antifa tools, how about you go back to that Marine Corps office and attack it…while the Marines are in there, and see what happens!  lol   Anyway, to see photos and videos of this event, click on the text above.

College puts professor who tweeted about teaching ‘future dead cops’ on administrative leave

A New York professor who tweeted that teaching “future dead cops” is a “privilege” – provoking outrage from the city’s police leaders – was placed on administrative leave on Saturday by his employer. Michael Isaacson, an adjunct professor at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice and self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist, was disciplined because of the three-week-old tweet that caught fire after Isaacson’s Thursday appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” His Aug. 23 tweet said: “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.” “Michael Issacson harbors total disdain for the active and future police officers that he teaches at John Jay College,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in a Friday press release. John Jay College President Karol V. Mason called Isaacson’s comments “abhorrent” and the “antithesis” of an academic institution that trains future law enforcement in a statement. Although she said that professors have a right to free speech and academic freedom, “expressions of hate or intimidation are not welcome in that civil discourse.” As Fox News previously reported, Roy Richter, president of the NYPD Captains Endowment Association, said the tweet is “an abdication of the professor’s responsibility as a civilized human being” and “disgusting.” “I am appalled that anyone associated with John Jay, with our proud history of supporting law enforcement authorities, would suggest that violence against police is ever acceptable,” Mason said in her statement. Mason also said that faculty members and students had been threatened as a result of Isaacson’s tweet, and he was placed on leave for safety reasons.

So, fire him already!  I actually caught some of this loser’s appearance on Tucker’s show..  What a tool!  If you have kids in his class, demand a refund.  Unreal..

Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization and must be denounced by Democrats

While the violent misfits of Antifa proudly call themselves anti-fascists – and liken their attacks on anyone they oppose to the heroic fight by resistance forces that battled the Nazis in World War II – in reality Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization. This is why President Trump renewed his criticism Thursday of the far-left extremists for their role in the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. And this is why Democrats and every American who believes in the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and opposes violence in pursuit of political goals should oppose Antifa as well. “I think, especially in light of the advent of Antifa, if you look at what’s going on there, you have some pretty bad dudes on the other side also, and essentially that’s what I said,” the president told reporters Thursday. He is right. It’s not just conservatives who are applying the terrorist label to Antifa. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is reported to have formally classified Antifa activities as “domestic terrorist violence.” The FBI has also blamed Antifa for violent attacks at public rallies and against groups that Antifa labels as fascist. Antifa will retreat when resisted. Like the bullies they are, Antifa thugs backed down when confronted by police Thursday night and did not carry out threats to disrupt a speech by conservative writer Ben Shapiro at the University of California at Berkeley. But security measures cost taxpayers $600,000 to protect Shapiro’s right to free speech at the university that gave birth to the Free Speech Movement in the 1960s. Antifa terrorists use organized and systemic violence to attack not just those they disagree with, but also anyone nearby. By design, Antifa is loosely organized. Each group operates mostly independent of the others, with variations on beliefs, tactics, and goals. Yet all are grounded in some form of anarchist, Maoist or Marxist beliefs. And all follow the standard operating procedure used by terrorists — Antifa members operate on a cell structure. This structure makes it hard to pin down Antifa leaders or organizing principles, but we know it gives them greater power to bash skulls, silence their enemies and walk away unscathed. And they are enabled and empowered by their allies on the left – most of them inside the Democratic Party and the mainstream media. Now let’s be clear. When I say Antifa, I’m talking about the organized thugs who go into the streets geared up to assault people and destroy property. These people are organizing to take violent action against any opposition. To these extremists, opposition can simply be taking pictures of the wrong person. In Richmond, Antifa assaulted a reporter from a local TV station, bludgeoning him in the back of the head, creating a wound that had to be stapled closed. The militants then engaged in victim blaming, suggesting they had a right to split his skull open like an egg. As CNN’s Jake Tapper has pointed out, a number of journalists have been assaulted by Antifa across the country. At this point Antifa is doing more than waging random violence against anybody who happens to be in the way. A report from the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal News shows that Antifa is targeting specific individuals for violence. Antifa is also creating and distributing “Know Your Nazi” flyers complete with names, faces, and descriptions of their targets. One Antifa terrorist named Dominic said: “The people on our list are targets, so they got injured.” But a large portion of those on the Antifa’s hit list aren’t neo-Nazis or white nationalists of any sort. In fact, not even close.

Of course not..  Antifa isn’t after white nationalists anyway.  They’re socialists, and self-proclaimed marxists.  Their “targets” are Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, and those who believe in the capitalism and free market forces; those things that really do make “America great”…which is why they go after Trump, and Trump supporters.  In the process, they use, ironically, fascist tactics while proclaiming they’re “anti-fascist.”  And, they’re so stupid and brainwashed they don’t even see the irony.  Anyway, to read the rest of this outstanding analysis by Ned Ryun, click on the text above.
