During the 79th night of unrest in Portland, Oregon, a group of counter-protesters were assaulted by men who claimed to be Black Lives Matter protesters.
The encounter, which occurred during the early hours of Sunday morning, shows counter-protesters being spat on, hit with a baseball bat and shoved to the ground. Moments later, the Portland Police Department declared a riot. (RELATED: ‘It Breaks My Heart’: Dr. Carol Swain Blasts Leftists For Normalizing ‘White Shaming’)
“Black people are going to get blamed for that,” a black man tells the white man responsible for hitting counter-protesters with a bat. “You’re gonna sit up here and change the narrative of this protest.”
According to a Daily Caller reporter capturing the video, the sheriff’s office made five announcements to the group to not come on the property. The crowd ignored the warnings, though.
