"Anti-fascist group seen as playing big role in Portland unrest: report Portland works to get a grip on protests The Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front, a group comprised of anti-capitalist and anti-fascist teens, has been blamed for playing a major role in the weeks of unrest unfolding in Portland, a report Sunday said. Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, took to Twitter late Sunday night to essentially give an update on the city’s condition as violent protests continue. Wheeler pointed to one protester who suffered a gruesome injury on Saturday night that prompted the U.S. Marshals Service to investigate, and he appealed to the public for calm. “We are now more than a month and a half into witnessing nightly violence on our streets,” he tweeted. “Portland continues to be used as a staging ground for violence night after night. This is causing unprecedented harm to our communities, livelihoods, and Portlanders continue to fear for their safety. My main concern is this: that the continuing violence will lead to further injuries or even deaths.” Some users who responded to his tweet implored him to publically identify the groups behind the unrest. But the Seattle Times identified one of these groups in a lengthy article that is “emerging as a persistent militant voice” in the city. The group reportedly effectively employs social media and even provides protesters with tactical advice. https://www.foxnews.com/us/anti-fascist-group-seen-as-playing-major-role-in-portland-unrest-report " Democrats own this violence because they have aided and abetted it.
