Portland police don’t intervene as Antifa, Proud Boys battle in streets
Shocking videos from Portland showed skirmishes between Anti-fascists and alleged Proud Boys members, as both sides seemingly launched fireworks at one another down a city street — events that carried on past nightfall without any officer response despite being blocks away from a police station.
Members of the Proud Boys group reportedly attempted to close off an intersection to allow Christian worshippers who had come to attend an event on the waterfront organized by “Let Us Worship” rally leader Sean Feucht.
Feucht, who has made a name for himself protesting coronavirus restrictions on religious services in California and elsewhere in the country, clarified to Fox News though that the Proud Boys are not affiliated with his ministry – and were not hired as part of the event’s security service.
Once the families in attendance were gone, videos show confrontations continuing, as Antifa members in black bloc attire wearing helmets and holding shields deploy mace and some sort of gas. Fireworks explode in the streets, as Proud Boys fire paint ball guns back at the other side.
