(NationalSentinel) Weâ€™ve been warning for months that unless members of the loose-knit, would-be domestic terrorist group Antifa did not stop their gang attacks against lone conservatives that eventually it would start a massive backlash from the political Right.
That day appears to have arrived, or soon will.

On Saturday, Trump-supportingÂ QuilletteÂ journalist Andy Ngo was attacked, robbed, and hospitalized by Antifa thugs who pelted him with quick-drying cement, stones, fists, and feet as he attempted to cover their latest demonstration in downtown Portland, Ore., the city that has become ground zero for the Alt-Left-s â€˜revolution.â€™
Ngo was pummeled badly enough he developed a small brain bleed and was hospitalized overnight. The beating prompted outrage from the Right, calls for federal intervention from some lawmakers including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), andÂ a well-deserved lawsuitÂ against the guilty parties.
For many on the Right, the attack against Ngo was one too many. Now, according toÂ Big League Politics, a massive rally of conservatives and pro-Trump supporters is being planned for Aug. 17 in Portland, which could lead to outright war between political factions â€” because the radical Left has refused to curb its violence.
Big League PoliticsÂ notes further:Â
The Proud Boys and conservatives are planning a large â€œEnd Domestic Terrorismâ€ rally to push back against Portland Antifa following a weekend of violence that saw journalist Andy NgoÂ brutally beatenÂ and attacked with milkshakes, and an elderly manâ€™sÂ skull fracturedÂ after being attacked with a metal bar.Â
As noted by Enrique Tarrio, head of the Proud Boys and a co-organizer of an upcoming rally in Washington, D.C., called â€œDemand Free Speechâ€ â€” which has been threatened with acid attacks by Antifa Leftists â€” the Portland event is designed specifically to push back against what he describes as â€œdomestic terrorism.â€
â€œWeâ€™re planning this massive rally with the calm, peaceful intention to push back against the violence from Antifa,â€ Tarrio toldÂ Big League Politics.Â â€œThe Portland Mayor and police need to understand that conservatives are peaceful people who just want to our First Amendment protected.
â€œItâ€™s good that the Portland police want to do their job,â€ noted Tarrio further. â€œSo long as they do their job, the Proud Boys will have a peaceful rally, and there will be multiple Antifa arrests.â€
Tarrio notes that he would like to see at least, 1,000 conservatives show up for the Portland event. He also said heâ€™s in preliminary discussions with Right-leaning speakers from around the country to address the rally as well.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is being blamed by some for being a co-conspirator in the attack against Ngo for allegedly ordering his police department to stand down and not confront Antifa thugs,Â an allegation he has denied.
Whatâ€™s more, the Portland Police Association (because Leftists canâ€™t call it a â€œdepartmentâ€) has also attempted to lay equal blame on the Proud Boys and Antifa for last weekendâ€™s violence.
But,Â Big League PoliticsÂ noted, video and the march route provided to the news organization by Proud Boys member Joshua Hall indicates that his organization was at least a 30-minute walk from where Ngo was assaulted. That directly contradicts PPA claims that the group wasÂ alsoÂ involved in violence associated with Ngoâ€™s attack.
In an official statement posted to the Portland Police Associationâ€™s Facebook page, Hall noted: â€œItâ€™s time for our Mayor to do two things: tell both ANTIFA and Proud Boys that our City will not accept violenceâ€¦and remove the handcuffs from our officers and let them stop the violence through strong and swift enforcement action.â€
Tarrio said he believes the city of Portland will deny him a permit for the August 17 demonstration but will follow the letter and spirit of the law to have a rally anyway.Â
And so it begins. Whatâ€™s this about â€œresistance?â€
