Sparks Go Flying as Fed-Up Driver Plows Through Antifa's Makeshift Roadblock

Sparks flew — literally — in Portland, Oregon, this week as one driver refused to let protesters tell him where he could go.

The incident took place in North Portland at about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to KATU-TV.

Protesters were trying to block a street using fences and anything else that could stop traffic.

The driver of the pickup truck was confronted by a protester who had put his motorcycle on the pavement to form an impromptu barrier.

This had no effect on the truck, which dragged the motorcycle along as it crashed through a fence.

Journalist Hannah Ray Lambert was nearby and filmed the incident, which she posted on Twitter.

“Pickup sped through crowd and rammed through the fence, sparks flying,” she wrote. 15842? ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E129089569850691 5842%7Ctwgr%5E& -go-flying-fed-driver-plows-antifas-makeshift-roadblock%2F 95? ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E129139780207401 7795%7Ctwgr%5E& -go-flying-fed-driver-plows-antifas-makeshift-roadblock%2F

The incident led to reports that the driver “stopped a block away, got out with a rifle, and ran into a house, prompting rumors among the crowd – now on edge – that the person would return,” according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.

KATU reported that police said the driver “spoke to officers and cooperated and was released without charges.”

That night, protesters tried to access the Portland Police Association office and threw objects at officers, eventually breaking into the building and setting a fire.

The night was also marked by two separate incidents of shots being fired in the crowd of protesters.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has largely supported the protests, changed his tune Thursday. 80003840? ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E129169763018000 3840%7Ctwgr%5E& -go-flying-fed-driver-plows-antifas-makeshift-roadblock%2F

“You are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said, according to KATU.

Wheeler said the city anticipated more “attacks on public buildings.”

Turn out the lights, the party's over, and tomorrow starts the same old thing again.

several brews

After working a concert on the north side at Rosemont, we would be out in the parking lot for a couple of beers the company provided for us.

One night it was a little chilly and a few of the guys were warming up their cars.

Some guy tried to get in one of the running cars. We were hollering, "POLICE! We got a guy out of control over here!"

They grabbed him and threw him in back seat of one of the squad cars and he tried to kick the window out of the squad. ROTFLOL

What a GORGEOUS sight -- the sparks from the disintegrating cycle, right? It's the 4th of July again!

And he was released without charges!?!?! The police must be getting totally sick of the situation. Good.


USA! USA! USA! Bringing you democracy, or else! there were strains of VD that were incurable, and they were first found in the Philippines and then transmitted to the Korean working girls via US military. The 'incurables' we were told were first taken back to a military hospital in the Philippines to quietly die. – 4um
