The Patriot Prayer Rally in Portland on Saturday was marked with violence and attacks by Antifa on both right-wing activists and police, who resorted to using tear gas, flash-bang grenades, and riot tactics to subdue the threat.

According to USA Today, police used “flash bang” devices to disperse hundreds of protesters and counter-protesters who gathered at a right-wing rally in downtown Portland Saturday. What they didn’t report, and what most media didn’t report, was how one-sided the violence was, dished out by Antifa.

Police report Antifa members began throwing objects at marchers and police.

The counter-protesters were made up of a coalition of labor unions, immigrant rights advocates, democratic socialists and other groups. They included people dressed as clowns and a brass band blaring music.

Warnings were issued by loudspeaker and tweets.

Then there were attacks like these.

ABC News posted video of police trying to keep Antifa activists at bay with flash bang grenades.

More violence broke out in other areas, most from Antifa activists.

One protester took to Twitter to complain that riot police came after him when he refused to disperse. He even posted video to show how he was “attacked.”

Antifa attempted to attack someone in a pickup truck, but they were armed with pepper spray to fend them off.

After the protests were over, some Antifa members took to Twitter to declare victory.
