I always try to tell “normal” people that the best way to see how our opposition truly acts, is to go to one of their rallies/protests/riots and try to be a neutral observer. You’ll quickly find that the BLM and Antifa types won’t allow it. If you don’t immediately identify as one of their supporters, you’ll be harassed and attacked until you leave. If you try to film them, you will be mobbed by sign carriers trying to block your video or possibly even have your camera stolen and destroyed.
I encountered this behavior when I tried to film the first BLM protest in Lake Oswego. I saw it again one night in East Portland where a young lone Trump supporter was attacked and had his cellphone taken by the mob. He made the mistake of going into their territory at night without backup, and was lucky he wasn’t seriously injured.
Recently, some of the guys at one of our rallies in Coos Bay got some heat for following Cameron Langley and trading insults with him as he livestreamed. One of them also slammed Cameron’s car door as he was leaving. I don’t condone this last act, but let me try to compare and contrast the behavior of the two sides.
This last Saturday, there were competing rallies at the Coos Bay boardwalk. The medical freedom rally ran from 10am-2pm. A rally for reproductive freedom then started at 3pm. A handful of the attendees for the second rally arrived early and there were some traded insults between the two groups, but nothing serious. A few of us stayed to watch the second rally. We do this because our opposition becomes more bold if they think we aren’t paying attention. We’ve never attempted to disrupt one of their events. We watch and occasionally trade insults. It’s just the way it is.
Around 4:45pm, their rally was looking pretty pedestrian, so most of us took off. Here’s a lesson to you young whippersnappers…the action always starts after you leave. So, we all get a message from the one guy who stayed behind that a large group had surrounded some guy who showed up and started reading from the Bible. I’ll add some video below, but let me give it a little additional context. The guy in question parked across the street from the rally, stood on the opposing street corner and began to read aloud from his Bible. That’s it. Around 8 of the rally-goers immediately crossed the street and surrounded this man. This is what Cameron Langley (aka Kamryn Stringfield) is bringing to your community.
If this happened in Portland, Salem or Eugene, the gentleman would have been a bloody mess on the ground. The only reason they don’t go that far here (yet) is because we won’t let them. To all those who still say that it’s mutual combat and both sides do the same thing, I tell you unequivocally that you have no freaking idea what you’re talking about. Our side supports free speech, theirs doesn’t. I am sick and tired of our side being painted as the aggressors. BLM and Antifa get away with anything they want up north, but when Patriot Prayer, Proud Boys or any other group shows up to protect free speech on our side, the lamestream media claims the violence is their fault.
If you still don’t believe me, take a look at these videos. The first is a small Christian rally in Portland that was attacked by Antifa. The second is another Christian rally the very next day that wasn’t attacked. Why? Because they had huge numbers and protection.
And BTW, that big Samoan guy in the second video? That’s a Proud Boy named Tusitala “Tiny” Toese. He and his friends kept that second Christian rally safe. You know what happened to him recently? He got shot in the leg in Olympia, WA while doing the same thing. By an Antifa coward. That’s just what they do.
