The picture (see below) is of Republican Nazis demonstrating at the Willamette River Waterfront in downtown Portland. They were just a few blocks south from directly across the river from me. I indicated the location of the shiny new CatBox with a blue arrow. I could not see the, as trees blocked my view. That’s OK. Trees look better than Republicans do anyway. The demonstrators moved South and West, away from the river. After all the hype, it was a flash in the pan.
Portland saw its largest far-right demonstration of the Trump era on Saturday, as 500 rightwingers traveled from around the country to march back and forth across the city’s bridges, and briefly occupy a patch of its waterfront.
By making extensive accommodations for the unpermitted rightwing protest, including close police escorts, concrete barriers, and reopening a bridge to allow them to leave the downtown area, Portland authorities succeeded in preventing head-on confrontations between it and a much larger counter-protest.
The far right “end domestic terrorism” protest, organized by leaders in the “western chauvinst” Proud Boys fraternity, saw Trump supporters rub shoulders with more radical groups, including Three Percenters, a “patriot movement” militia group, and American Guard, who the Anti-Defamation League described as “hardcore white supremacists”… [emphasis added]

It was the most peaceful protest Trump’s Nazi-Republican Proud Boys and Antifa, many of whom are Anarchist Nut-jobs, have ever had, thanks to good crowd management by the police.
