Counter Protests And Rallys Draw Thousands In Portland

Alt-Right, White Nationalist, Free Speech: The Far Right's Language Explained

Alt-Right, White Nationalist, Free Speech: The Far Right's Language Explained

A pro-Donald Trump free speech rally organized by a conservative group has begun.

"I'm calling on everyone to please, do everything you can to be positive", he said.

The rallies, coming as they do in the wake of the brutal MAX attack where 2 people died and a third seriously wounded as they stood up to a a man harassing a teenage girl in a hijab, expose the raw nerve that often lies just beneath the surface in Portland and elsewhere.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler last week urged federal authorities to rescind a permit for the June 4 pro-Trump rally, saying he anxious the protest could inflame tensions in the wake of the stabbings.

Sunday's rally - in an outdoor plaza sandwiched between City Hall and the jail where Christian is being held - provided a vivid illustration of the city's divisions.

Police confiscated the bat, and he was then caught on camera clashing with counter-protesters.

Farmington's Summerhays takes advantage of Dufner collapse at Memorial
Jamie Donaldson of Wales, who had led by two strokes on Friday, carded a two-over 75 and ended up three strokes behind Wood. Rickie Fowler was among them, salvaging a two-under 70 after a poor start with a triple-bogey seven at the second.

When Christian was arraigned Tuesday, he yelled: "Get out if you don't like free speech!" and "You call it terrorism; I call it patriotism".

Officers say they want protesters to stay with their groups and not cross the street to escalate tensions. Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, accosted the women with "what would best be characterized as hate speech toward a variety of ethnicities and religions", Portland police said.

"There will be a robust law enforcement presence due to online threats of violence between different groups", the Portland Police wrote in a statement in the days ahead of the rallies.

In Schrunk Plaza, some of the protestors at the right-wing rally were dressed in military-style camouflage and American flags, while others wore red Trump "Make America Great Again" caps.

"The goal is to keep everybody separated, respect First Amendment rights for everybody to speak their piece", the mayor told KOIN 6 News.

"Every single time I throw a rally, every single march, it's the same thing", he said Wednesday.

Federal judge tosses out life sentences for DC sniper Malvo
Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh told the paper that the state can appeal Jackson's ruling. Now 32, Malvo is serving multiple life sentences at Red Onion State Prison in Virginia, a supermax prison.

Attendees included some of the biggest names on the so-called alt right, the loosely organized and mostly digital network of white nationalists, supremacists and other far-right activists which sprung to prominence amid President Donald Trump's rise to power. His group - which isn't racist or alt-right, he says - shouldn't be held responsible for the actions of counter-demonstrators. "That what I'm going to do is unsafe, what I'm going to do is risky for the city because we are going to provoke other people to be violent against us". Agents from the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Protective Service will be on hand.

"Some chanted "love, not hate" and 'Go home, fascists, '" the AP says.

Gibson told CNN that Patriot Prayer will have its own security at the rally.

An uneasy peace hung over the demonstrations.

Portland Police could not confirm which side those arrested belonged to. In addition to the arrests, a large pickup truck flying two large American flags cruised past hundreds of anti-fascist protesters and honked its horn.

Officers arrested four people from that crowd, but they released all others after checking people's identification.

Joseph Aspirin, Sudafed, Pepcid, Mylanta, Rolaids, Zyrtec and Zyrtec Eye Drops, several of which are indicated for pediatric use. The settlement resolves allegations against McNeil-PPC, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

"We're going to have the groups come downtown and do our best to keep them separated", Marshmann said. One Trump supporter said she was marching in support of "free speech" after the mayor's attempt to silence the Patriot Prayer event.
