During the ANTIFA protest in Portland that turned violent a few weeks ago they unknowingly attacked a Bernie Sanders Supporter for holding an American Flag.
ANTIFA believed because the man was holding the United States Flag he must have been a Fascist. Ironically it may be the first time ever ANTIFA did attack a real Fascist. Bernie Sanders Policies are near identical to Fascist policies.
“Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known,” The Oregonian reports. “With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators.” But things quickly unraveled when Welch encountered black-clad so-called “anti-fascist” protesters, who “demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol,” the paper reports.
Welch took a blow to the head from the violent thugs of ANTIFA while he came down to protest against the proud boys.
“I didn’t come as a part of any one group,” Welch told The Oregonian. “I was just protesting outsiders coming here for their tacitly fascist event.”
“I had felt like showing that a liberal, free Portland — or any major city, really — is much more American and much more numerous and strong than any of these interloping groups,” said Welch, who the outlet notes is a registered Democrat who voted for Sanders in the 2016 primary and Hillary Clinton in the general election.
