Portland, under the incompetent leftist Mayor Tom Wheeler, looks like a Third World city once again. Last night participants with the right-wing fraternal organization, the Patriot Prayer group and counter-demonstrators with Antifa got into a bloody melee outside a popular bar where members on both sides used bear spray, fists and clubs to beat each other, the Oregonian reported.
Director Paul Greengrass’s take on the 2011 Norway attacks that left 77 dead is a vivid and graphic recreation. The film takes close look at what allowed the attack, planned and executed by Anders Behring Breivik to occur – from a lack of security at the Prime Minister’s government offices to the ideology that motivated Breivik.

It’s shaping up to be a possible tinderbox. Fringe-right media outlets like Alex Jones’ Infowars have promoted the event, and Gibson has reportedly promised that followers from across the country will attend, including members of the Proud Boys, a self-described “western chauvinist” group known for their distinct Fred Perry polo shirts.
