Just in case you had any lingering doubt that the fuckheads behind all these Pacific Northwest fascist rallies were anything less than 100% fascist white supremacists.
Anyway, aside from a few brawls and minor injuries, not a lot happened. You might see fascist assholes desperately trying to push the narrative that an antifa individual threw a hammer into a fascist bus. First of all, oh no a single literal hammer-throw, better get these thugs labeled as terrorists right away, right?
In reality, what happened is that as antifa were hurrying the fascists back onto their fascist busses to go back to their fascist homes, one of the fascists attacked and grabbed an antifa person by the shirt and tried to pull them onto the bus, which definitely would have ended badly. As you can see in the following image, it's a fascist who is wielding the hammer, and was reportedly trying to hit the victim with it.

Also, fuck the police, but in particular for dogpiling this random woman who spit in their direction. Seriously.
Person in dress crossing street who spat in the general direction of a cop van, then was singled out by one of the riot cops, only to be tackled to the ground moments later by 5 officers. #ThisIsAmerica #PortlandProtest #PortlandProtests #PoliceBrutality #PortlandPolice #PPB pic.twitter.com/WDdH8YK8BU— queerflatsoda (@feefifofummmm) August 18, 2019
Hello, yes, we are living in a police state, yeah? Because that's the only kind of state where it's an arrestable offense to spit in the general direction of some cops.
Aside from those two things, the day turned out to be mostly hilarious. I already made a list this morning for my actual job so you know what just go look at that. You'll find marching bands in banana costumes, puppies, unicorns, and dance parties. Keep being you, Portland.
