Heckler's veto

Daily WirePatriot Prayer, which has been associated with elements of the alt-right, had a permit to demonstrate in Portland’s Federal Plaza Saturday, but Antifa showed up for a “counter-demonstration.” Before marchers had even stepped foot on the street, police had already seized “utility knives, clubs, and chemical sprays” from Antifa “counter-protesters” and detained several people clad in black associated with the group.

“Anti-fascist counter-demonstrators immediately began lobbing eggs, half-empty water bottles, and firecrackers at the conservative marchers, prompting federal police to fire paintballs filled with pepper-spray into the crowd,” the Oregonian said.

Antifa managed to strike only four people in their assault, but the projectiles began what police called a “riot.” The police were then forced to revoke the Patriot Prayer group’s permit and dissolve the demonstration.

Four members of Antifa were arrested.

Funny how bad acts by the "counterprotesters", including obviously premeditated violence, were used to shut down the original demonstration.
