On August 8th, 2018, the far-right “free speech” group Patriot Prayer organized a rally in Portland, Oregon alongside alt-right “fraternity” the Proud Boys, a Southern Poverty Law Center-designated hate group. A coalition of counter-protesters, including local unions, immigrant rights advocates, and Rose City Antifa were also in attendance. It was the third such rally in the city last summer, and led to multiple arrests and injuries.

MuckRock user Brian Waters obtained communication logs from the Portland Police Bureau from the day of the rally. The logs show police frequently overlooking armed and violent demonstrators with Patriot Prayer or the Proud Boys, while explicitly targeting counter-protesters with anti-riot measures like flash grenades and pepper spray, injuring many.

The PPB has been under scrutiny for its handling of white supremacist and right-wing rallies in the city, with accusations of excessive force on left-wing protesters and overt friendliness toward right-wing ones, including those with known histories of violence. // Recently released records show Portland Police Bureau targeted counter-protesters, ignored armed alt-right demonstrators at “Patriot Prayer” rally • MuckRock

“By Robert Evans // On April 27, 2019, at around 11:30 a.m. local time, a young man with a semi-automatic rifle walked into the Chabad of Poway Synagogue in Poway, California. He opened fire, killing one worshipper and wounding three others. In the hours since the shooting, a manifesto, believed to be written by the shooter, began circulating online. Evidence has also surfaced that, like the Christchurch Mosque shooter, this killer began his rampage with a post on 8chan’s /pol/ board.

Washington, DC – Identity Evropa, the largest neo-Nazi organization in the United States, recently renamed itself the American Identity Movement. The name change came after reporting by Unicorn Riot exposed over a year of internal chat logs from inside Identity Evropa, leading to journalists and antifascists exposing many of the group’s formerly anonymous members.” – <https://unicornriot.ninja/2019/americans-of-european-heritage-exclusively-identity-evropa-front-group-meetings-leaked/>

Kevin Kim // The title is in Russian, but when translated into English means “The White Movement.”The conversation was provided by two Shea insiders, who wish to remain anonymous.According to Gonzaga Professor/History Department Chair Kevin O’Connor, The White Movement, also known as the White Armies, is “anti-Semitic in nature,” but isn’t the same as the white supremacist or power movements.“The salient feature, I think, of those White Armies is this idea of wanting to resurrect this old Russian Empire, but there’s also this anti-Semitic streak among those White Armies that were notorious for their attacks against Jewish communities in the Ukraine and what had been the Russian empire,” O’Connor said.” – <https://www.khq.com/news/exclusive-matt-shea-s-group-chat-originally-titled-white-movement/article_1a528bbe-67bf-11e9-9e8f-634f9c0b4540.html>
