This will be a catch-all thread for anything related to the current protests/riots in the US.

Let's start.

Warning: Graphical.

Black man stabbed in the back by a 43yo white protester in Portland.

He was then apprehended by fellow protesters and has been arrested by police.

Victim alleges he was stabbed because he was a Trump supporter and that the assailant was an "Antifa paedophile".

Victim seems to be doing fine in hospital.

Cant really tell much from that short clip.
Be careful with the Andy Ngo stuff, he is a mixed bag. Sometimes dishonest and dramatic.
He does have really good footage though. But yes, he's clearly dramatic. Do you have an example of him just being blatantly dishonest? I just watch his vids.

I saw him posting images of people who were arrested and then he cropped off the fact that they were released with no charges. It's the same nonsense that we see from supposed credible sources. Have to just be critical of everything. But I agree that a lot of video speaks for itself.

So not lying, but rather being misleading. Well, that's an issue. I'll have to check before posting.
Things like this seem to be fine. Also, seems some are turning on the "Wall of Moms".

And then you have HuffPo trying to normalise their violence.

Well they aren't wrong. America has always been a violent country and not as civilized as they would like the rest of the world to believe.
They are just demonstrating that "The New World" is still part of the Third World when it comes to mentality.

The withdrawal of federal agents from frontline policing of demonstrations in downtown Portland significantly reduced tensions in the city overnight.

Protesters in support of Black Lives Matter once again rallied near the federal courthouse that became a flashpoint, and the scene of nightly battles amid the swirl of teargas, after Donald Trump dispatched agents to end what he called anarchy in the city after weeks of demonstrations.

But in the absence of the federal officers, Thursday night’s protest passed off without major incident or intervention by the police.
