Footage has emerged of several violent attacks by antifa on right-wing demonstrators in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday, Aug. 18.

Antifa, an anti-government protest group with a following in the Portland area, gathered to march and confront a political right-wing rally, led by another group called “Proud Boys,” near the SW Park area of the city.

Antifa members spotted the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer group on the buses heading out of Portland, then they moved in for the attack. They kicked and punched the buses, threw debris and rocks, smashed several windows, and even threw a claw hammer at someone on the bus.

Videos showed masked protesters attacking two buses that were carrying right-wing demonstrators. One skirmish saw “anti-fascists” smashing a door and throwing a hammer into one of the buses, before chasing the vehicle and hurling rocks.

Journalist Andy Ngo, who survived a brutal attack by antifa members in June, posted some videos about the rally.

He said, “I recognize this shirtless man from Seattle last year at another antifa protest. He came up to me and said, “Death is coming.””

Here are other videos from Andy Ngo.

Some clashes did take place, resulting in at least 13 arrests.

President Trump has been an outspoken critic of antifa in recent weeks and has even threatened to categorize the group as a terrorist organization.

On Saturday morning, he posted on Twitter, “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.’ Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”
