Antifa Murders Patriot Prayer Member In Portland, OR ~ VIDEO

PORTLAND, ORE-(Ammoland.com)- An Antifa member allegedly shot and killed Patriot Prayer member Aaron “Jay” Danielson in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday night.

Patriot Prayer organized a pro-Trump caravan to drive through Portland on Saturday sporting American flags and Trump banners. Counter-protesters met the parade of cars with anarcho-communist symbols such as the hammer and sickle and burning the American flag. Portland has been the ground zero for the Antifa movement in the country. The city has been rocked by violence between Antifa and right-wing groups like Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys.

Fights broke out between the two opposing groups. Around 8:30 p.m., the line of cars left downtown Portland. About 15 minutes later, an Antifa member appears to have shot and killed Danielson. Although Portland Police Bureau Chief Chuck Lovell said that police haven’t been able to determine if the shooting was politically motivated, most people believe that Antifa targeted Danielson for his support of the President.

“The issue with firearms is very troubling to us, but people do have a constitutional right to carry firearms legally,” Lovell said. “So, it’s hard to prevent. Some of the instances that take place, you’re talking split-second, a couple of seconds. A lot of times, we’re not right there to see things happen.”

Portland police have identified Antifa member, Michael Forest Reinoehl, as the suspected shooter. Reinoehl is a well-known communist in the Pacific Northwest. Law Enforcement in the past has arrested Reinoehl with a “large cache of weapons” during the Portland climate strike. He is known to be violent and to carry a gun.

Founder of Patriot Prayer, Joey Gibson, called Danielson a “good friend,” but said he would not release a comment until after Danielson’s family has a chance to speak about their family member.

BLM and Antifa protesters celebrated the killing in the streets of Portland. The Speaker called Danielson a fascist and said they were not sorry that their group killed him. The crowd met this proclamation with loud cheers.

“Rest In Peace Jay!” President Trump tweeted out his condolences to Danielson and his family. The President went on to call mayor Ted Wheeler a “joke of a mayor” and a “fool” because of Wheeler’s handling of the violence that has been gripping Portland for months.

“That’s classic Trump,” Mayor Wheeler shot back at Trump during a news conference Sunday. “Mr. President, how can you think that a comment like that, if you’re watching this, is in any way helpful? It’s an aggressive stance, it is not collaborative.”

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced that she would be sending State Police into the city to try to curb the violence. She will also request help from the FBI and U.S Attorney’s office to try to take back control of the city from radical left-wing militants that have dug in.

Brown blamed Patriot Prayer for the killing of their own member. She claimed the group came to Portland looking for a fight. The Governor didn’t mention Antifa or BLM in her statement even though all the video evidence appears to confirm a member of Antifa did the killing.

“The right-wing group Patriot Prayer and self-proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night, armed and looking for a fight. Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence. I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets.

“Time and again, from Charlottesville to Kenosha to Portland, we have seen the tragic outcome when armed right-wing vigilantes take matters into their own hands. Gun violence is never, ever the answer.”

Police are seeking the whereabouts of Reinoehl. The Governor and Mayor didn’t return AmmoLand’s request for comment.

When you cheer the death of someone it is not just being glad that a person died, it is that the enemy died. Antif—-ks and BL? consider republicans to be the enemy, therefore; we need to be on alert wherever and whenever we go somewhere in these cesspools and try and avoid them when we can but sometimes you can’t avoid going into the lions den. I just think it is so funny that now that the pussy mayor got his home burned and they tried to kill him that he is moving for the safety of the other tenants,… Read more »

RoyD,

The Chekist is an excellent object lesson. Again, unfortunately, you have to sign in to Youtube to see it. The Cheka were the predecessors to the Soviet, not Russian, secret police. The way they went after all dissent, including in their ranks should teach Leftists everywhere something about how the Left works.

It isn’t a time or money issue, at least for me. I don’t like the political views or actions of many of the tech companies or social networks. As a result, I don’t use their products if I can’t do it anonymously and try not to give them funding if I can avoid that.

If my enemies wish to support their demise by supplying the means by which I can bring about their destruction I am all in favor of that. Much like my post about buying gunpowder from China. Same thing. There are plenty of people who don’t give a second thought to buying ammo, and primers from Russian companies. Same thing.
Now, if there is a product or service from a “friendly” source I can get for the same value that is a different scenario. Of course everyone sets their own limits and direction.

I certainly don’t disagree with any of your points. It just comes down to weighing how much I want the data they provide, and the alternative sources VS how much support I’m willing to give them by giving up privacy/other information.

As all of life really comes down to the weighing of one thing against another. It’s just balance. We cannot even walk without shifting our balance from one foot to the other. But only the exact correct amount of imbalance in a precise direction allows us to travel with ease. If we get it wrong, we fall flat on our face, as toddlers often do. And as adults do too, but less often… we hope. 🙂 Our society today is terribly out of balance. And as with all things out balance, it will fall. As surely as all buildings leaning… Read more »

I heard voices say before the shooting “Hey here is one of them” meaning a Trump supporter. They clearly killed him because he supports a different point of view than them. They are trying to sway people to vote and change America through intimidation. It will never work.

Unbelievable attitudes from Wheeler and Brown. They need to be targeted for removal whether through voting or through arrest for treason and sedition.

Wheeler doesn’t seem to know the meaning of collaborative.

Agree. And if we let Kamala Harris in on election day we all will live under a Socialist regime for a very long time. She will de-fund and disarm the police and then she will hunt down each and every patriot. She and her colleagues want a war. Nothing more, nothing less.

These people, are taking so many and making them racist as hell because how can you not look at these black people doing this as evil?

Yesterday I saw a car with a BL? sticker on it.

Maybe if you stop the racist and psycho cops from harrassing the people of color, just for simply being black, then these problems and issues wouldn’t arise. HOW CAN WHITE PEOPLE TELL BLACK PEOPLE WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCES ARE ? The answer : YOU CAN’T, but you folks continue on with your facist perspective, and this country will be torn apart, and our enemies will defeat us from within.

Warlok11, It’s odd that the BLM and Antifa people can demonstrate in any city without there being an issue, but when people on the Right do it, all of a sudden it’s racist. Driving vehicles with signs is protesting, burning and looting is rioting; two entirely different things. You paint anybody who is white and disagrees with you as racist and fascist., but never call out the Blacks for their racism or the Leftists for their Fascism. Most people on the Right are against a strong Centralized government, that’s a preference of the Left, the desire for a strong leader… Read more »

Knute,
We’ve talked about this in the past. I see us in stages 7-8. You’re WAY more optimistic than I am. I look around and see 1/2 the population, at least, living on the public teat. Take a look at the welfare and unemployment (not due to the current pandemic) rates. Put in the people who actively WANT to live on the dole and have a super-strong central government, and my estimate of our chances goes down even further.

I see #7 all day long. The masses generally seem to be either entirely apathetic at best or willfully seeking the yolk at worst.

You are right. Our our chances are bad but not impossible. The only shot is to stand and begin change ourselves. Educating, ourselves and others, is vital and our duty, almost more so than physically defending our society.

I have been accused of being an eternal optimist before. More than once. And I see over half the sheeple loving their servitude, just as you do.
But remember, the sheep are irrelevant. They always flow whichever way the wind blows. They’re like rushing water. Or maybe white water. Dangerous, but fickle and directionless. Just taking the path of least resistance.
When an irate, tireless, minority sets a brushfire in their minds, they can turn on their masters as quick as the bear turned on Timothy Treadwell in “Grizzly Man”. 🙂

Knute, Optimism is good, I tend more towards stoicism. I agree that the sheeple tend to be irrelevant, the vast majority will sit out whatever happens, no matter what it is. It might be useful if they took sides, but I wouldn’t trust them to not change sides the moment things became uncomfortable. That’s what they did during the Revolutionary War. It always boils down to a small percentage of the group, whether you’re talking about military groups or the PTA. 10% is wonderful, 3% is much more likely. Enjoy the GJ.
