UPDATE (5:05 p.m. PST):

Even after knocking a middle-aged man unconscious, Antifa still continued to surround the guy.

They also chased down a man with an object that looks like a baseball bat.

UPDATE (3:45 p.m. PST):

Even more proof Antifa is a bunch of thugs:

And apparently Julio Rosas being attacked wasn't enough. Someone took issue with his shirt...because the flag is black and white.


Not quite seven weeks ago, conservative journalist Andy Ngo was attacked while covering an Antifa protest in Portland, Oregon. Mayor Tom Wheeler ordered police to stand down at the time and received backlash for doing so. The city prepared for the Proud Boys to hold a rally on Saturday, with Antifa showing up to counter protest. Wheeler made it clear that Portland is taking a "zero tolerance" policy during Saturday's activities. 

Despite the warning, Antifa, once again, became violent.

At one point, Antifa protestors had The Washington Examiner's Julio Rosas surrounded. They wanted him to report on what was taking place from the other side of the street because he "wasn't with" them. 

Rosas attempted to explain that he was simply reporting on the events for his job but Antifa didn't care. They thought he was "spying" on them.

After repeatedly being approached, Rosas decided to report from afar for his own protection.

But that wasn't the only time Antifa became violent. They also threw water bottles and stormed a couple of conservatives.

To add insult to injury, Antifa mocked Portland police for being in riot gear. The reason? Antifa, for whatever reason, seems to think they're a peaceful group of people. They must have missed all of the previous instances of violence.

One man was even shocked when he was shot with PepperBalls, a pepper spray round of ammunition.
