A counter-protest in Portland meant to stand against an event called ‘March for Jesus’ did not end well for one participant, who was hit by a pickup truck while running across the road.
The march was organized by a group called Patriot Prayer, led by a supporter of US President Donald Trump. Three activists who said they were part of the Antifa movement showed up to denounce the marchers as white supremacist trying to impose a religious worldview on America. The activists advocated the virtues of communism through a megaphone.
The counter-protest, however, ended badly for one of the participants, who ran across the road and was hit by a pickup truck. The incident apparently resulted in a broken hip for the unlucky activist.
Earlier in the counter-protest, this person is heard saying “So them, going around, pushing their Christianity on people who aren’t even necessarily Christian, their obsession with their holiday, their obsession with freedom of speech, marks that they want to hurt people!” in reference to the pro-Trump Christians.
In the meantime, his/her comrade, known only as “Nick”, takes to the blowhorn shouting “Communism will win! That’s not a joke! That will happen! Because we must go down to single class society! After capitalism, in its late stages, as it is right now, we will move down to a one class system called communism! Democratic and anarchist communism will be the ideology of the future!”
Not going to lie, I watched this over and over again.
