[Ed. – The facts as presented here must be wrong. Antifa is ‘only an idea.’ That’s according to Joe Biden.]
In 2020 … Portland, Ore., was in the national and international news for all the wrong reasons. Dozens of cities saw Black Lives Matter and Antifa-inspired protests or riots break out in response to George Floyd’s death on May 25, but Portland stood out above the others because its violence lasted for months.
On Aug. 29, 2020, that violence culminated in murder when a 48-year-old volunteer security “officer” for BLM-Antifa killed a Trump supporter in the city’s downtown.
Michael Forest Reinoehl shot Aaron “Jay” Danielson, 39, using a pistol at near point-blank range after lying in wait for him around a street corner. The shooting was caught on camera from a distance by a live streamer. A person believed to be Reinoehl shouted: “We’ve got a couple right here!” (Danielson was walking with a friend.) Two shots rang out, and Danielson fell face‐first to the ground. He … died instantly.
