Antifa Protesters Block Portland Traffic, Nearly Start Riot During Patrick Kimmons Vigil
Antifa protesters blocked traffic and almost started a riot during a Saturday march and vigil for Patrick Kimmons, a black Portland man shot by police on September 30 after he allegedly shot two people and approached officers holding a gun.
“Protesters Started a Riot in Downtown Portland!” tweeted videographer Brandon Farley, who, according to his Twitter feed, records “disruptive events in downtown Portland, Oregon.” The disturbing video shows protesters running down the street, and a group chasing an older white-haired man to his car.

The second video shows protesters blocking the road and trying to direct traffic during the vigil. “Needless to say, it went off without a hitch,” Farley wrote.

“Just go that way,” a female protester told a driver who had rolled down his window to talk. When he purportedly asked why, she responded, “Because I told you to.”
“Yeah brother, yeah you little white little f*er,” a man, who appeared to be white himself, yelled while approaching the vehicle. “The First Amendment. Get the f* down the road.”
Later in the video he called the driver a “little white supremacist” after he noticed the driver’s tags were from North Carolina.
