CBS News forgets to mention why the entire Portland police force was bracing for violence
We don’t have an official count of how many “fascists” attended the “End Domestic Terrorism” rally in Portland Saturday, but they did seem to make their getaway into two minibusses, so it couldn’t have been that many — kind of like that Klan rally in Dayton that attracted fewer than 10 people. They could have come in, had their rally, and left, and nothing would have changed.
Except that Antifa felt compelled to chase the fascists out of “their” city. CBS News had an interesting take in its tweet on the violent clashes in Portland Saturday:

So the attendees at the far-right rally were going to race through the city attacking people? Or was there another player here?
This is why no one trusts traditional news. https://t.co/u9HiPHIOBi

OH, and a far-left rally, but look out for the far right! https://t.co/e5KftGAtmG

@CBSNews, this is malpractice. Vile lie. Stop supporting Antifa's deadly violence.
All CBS News advertisers are complicit in CBS's support of Antifa's violence. https://t.co/1TWccperg8

Yeah, they're bracing for Antifa. Totally not a misleading headline https://t.co/JVAAHyxcJ6

And this is how Antifa views the police:

I lived in Portland. I had to leave because ANTlFA is truly unsafe to live around and regularly cause unprovoked violence and vandalism. Police regularly tear gas them.
Never from conservative groups, unless defending themselves from provocation and police inaction. I WAS THERE!

Portland braces for violence at a citizen rally BECAUSE OF ANTIFA — entire police force will be on duty

Embarrassing and misleading headline, but what else is new…
— Lance Barry (@LanceMBarry) August 17, 2019
I watched several live-streams of the event. The “far right” (which is anyone who isn’t an extreme leftist according to the MSM, apparently) wasn’t the problem. They assembled peacefully as they had planned.
Antifa on the other hand…

Violence from whom? I wonder who it could be….

From my vantage point the only violence that I’ve seen is coming from Antifa

This headline is why nobody respects you.

Since when is Antifa far right?

I read that in disbelief. It shows how uneducated the media is these days.

Always “far right” media how about we discuss “far left” ?
