Patriot Prayer is a right-wing group based in the Portland, Oregon area. Patriot Prayer describes itself as advocating in favor of free speech, and opposing big government. The group has organized pro-Trump rallies and other protests in predominantly liberal areas, in which it has been met with large numbers of counter-protesters. White nationalists have attended some of the rallies organised by Patriot Prayer, sparking controversy. In August 2017, in the wake of the Unite the Right rally, Joey Gibson, the founder of Patriot Prayer, denounced racism and denied that Patriot Prayer is connected to the alt-right.
Violence broke out in downtown Portland, Oregon, on Sunday as Antifa activists stormed a Patriot Prayer rally — about a year after similar dueling rallies triggered bloody fights and arrests.
Patriot Prayer, which bills itself as a peaceful First Amendment advocacy group, organized a rally — "Tiny's Freedom March," a going-away event for Tusitala John Toese, who's close with group leader Joey Gibson — for 5 p.m.
The Rose City Antifa scheduled a counter-protest for 4 p.m. "to show Patriot Prayer, just as we showed them last year, that their violence and hatred has no place in Portland.

Their shirts are black damninit.
The irony there being that in Nazi Germany they wore brown the Brownshirts did. But in Fascist Italy the shirts they wore were actually black!

The FBI should have rounded all these thugs up long ago. Political thugs shouldn't be tolerated for one second. But wait, the FBI are being used as political thugs too.
