Local media in Portland must be working hand-in-hand with the police to make sure anarchists and Antifa members are allowed to block streets in protest of whatever they’re protesting that day.
As Twitchy reported, one elderly man decided he wasn’t going to obey orders from Antifa and drove down a street they had blocked. They took down the license plate number and then doxxed the man, putting his home address on social media. The Portland Resistance claims the man “ran over” protesters.
Some people are upset about the fact that we asked for help identifying the man who ran over protesters in Portland and then upon getting that help, identified him. For that we would like to sincerely say, you’re welcome. Make racists afraid again ✊

But like we said, local media have to be in on it. What we see is some idiot in a black hoodie trying to stop a moving car with his puny body.
Here’s one angle:

And here’s what KATU News posted:

Plowed? I see a mob beating on an elderly man’s car with fists and weapons. One man is pushing against the car from the front, presumably (and baffling) trying to stop it from escaping. KATU, thanks for the lesson in hyperbolism.

That's not what happened.
If you watch another video of the same incident, the #antifa thugs took over the streets and tried to force cars to turn around. This (elderly) driver refused and was surrounded by the mob smashing his car with batons. He was just trying to escape.

Is anyone surprised that when standing in the middle of the road the likelihood of being struck by a vehicle goes up…..? you may have more people join your cause if you stop pissing off everyday citizens minding their own business… just a thought.

I wouldn’t call that “plowing” but if you’re going to block traffic expect to be used as a road bump. It comes with the territory. The obvious escapes the snowflakes often…

Saying the driver plowed through protesters doesn’t match up with the video. Those protestors look like a danger to peaceful society.

…."plowed through?" How about a little journalistic integrity, and not click-bait, @KATUNews

#FakeNews as slow driving is NOT 'plowed through'
— mathewsjw (@mathewsjw) October 8, 2018
From here it looked like the driver was the victim. I believe in protest, but not intimidation of other individuals who just happen by.

They planted themselves in front of his car and then rushed his car. He was probably terrified.

I'd be in fear too if a mob of masked individuals surrounded my car. Especially knowing how violent these protests get. I'd want nothing to do with it and would try to get out of the area too.

When a mob of hooded individuals surround your car then your car becomes your self defense weapon. He should of mowed down a few more to ensure his safety.

Plowing? How about self defense? These guys are candidates for Darwin Awards.

Plowing through? #FakeNews – The guy was trying to make a legal right turn while unhinged cupcakes tried to prevent him from doing so.
— CriticalToday (@mycriticaltoday) October 8, 2018
I wouldn’t say the car plowed into a victim. The victim was illegally in the road and trying to obstruct the driver. I would guess the driver wanted no part of an illegal protest and tried to carefully to get away. If he’d been vindictive he would have been going a lot faster.

"Victim" seems like the kind of word that should be reserved for someone who was struck by a vehicle… not someone who thought he could stop a car by leaning on it.
— The Happy Talent (@TheHappyTalent) October 8, 2018
Don't get in front of the car. If everyone would do this, people wouldn't block the road.
— David R Bowles (@DrBow31) October 7, 2018
Don’t block the street, won’t end up a speed bump, doesn’t seem all that difficult to me.
— Space Woman Spiff ??? (@BellaPelosi) October 8, 2018
Good. Just wish there was law and order in your city.
— rainman (@ms1brinker) October 9, 2018
"The victim"? You mean that guy who was planting his feet back and literally pushing (plowing, you might say) into the front of the car with all his might? ?♂️
— Sohan Dsouza (@SohanDsouza) October 9, 2018
The driver is the victim. Stop showing your bias.
— AD (@moogster11) October 9, 2018
#hottake You may want to rethink who is the victim.
— Mike Jones (@jonzeygolf) October 8, 2018
Protesters should not be allowed to walk freely in the streets. It’s ridiculous and they should all be cited.
— fletmw (@fletchallmc) October 7, 2018
"They have not heard from the driver or the victim yet." Don't be daft. The driver was the victim. It should read, driver escapes with his life after attack by violent lunatics.
— Andie Cole (@Andie_Cole_) October 8, 2018
I thought Seattle was bad…then I got transferred to this hell hole. The mayor lets this happen…because the mayor is a lunatic. Police are often given stand down orders…as was the case over the ICE office. This really needs to stop.
