We just published a post about a man who left his vehicle to confront Black Lives Matter protesters who were blocking the intersection, only for a cop to step in to tell the man to calm down and lead him back to his car to be stuck in traffic some more. Some people said they couldn’t believe it was Texas and not Portland. For Portland, we have to take you back to Thursday, when a man tried to maneuver through a weekly “Justice for Patrick Kimmons” march.

The New York Post reports:

A Portland handyman remains hospitalized from injuries sustained when he was beaten by a crowd of demonstrators amid an armed standoff with the protest’s self-appointed “security.”

Portland Police are trying to sort out exactly what happened Thursday afternoon that ended up sending Joseph Hall, 53, to the hospital.

Hall told the Oregonian he strayed into the “Justice for Patrick Kimmons” march, held weekly to protest the 2018 shooting death of a 27-year-old Black man, as it was making its way down the street in the North Portland neighborhood. He said he was headed home from a repair job at a nearby apartment complex when he swerved onto the street to avoid a moped that cut him off, then saw the moped following him, and a man screaming on a handheld radio to stop his red pickup truck.

He said he grabbed a nonlethal handgun that shoots hard pellets to try to get the people, who were calling him a Nazi, to clear out of his way, calling him a “Nazi.”

“They’re screaming and yelling at me, claiming I was out there trying to run people over. That’s when I discovered a march was going on,” Hall told the paper. ”I was trapped. A vehicle in front of me trapped me in. I couldn’t go forward or around.”

“I’m done, I’m done working in Portland. I’m shutting my business down and I’m probably not going to be coming back,” he said.

Here’s video of Hall being held on the ground and pleading for someone to call an ambulance. But just as these leftist extremists provide their own “security,” they had their “medic” treat him with glucose tablets. (Language warning)

Oh, and here’s another guy who had his tire slashed and mirror broken. Watch as the goon squad sends someone on a moped to join up with someone else on a bike to make sure he’s escorted out.

Are these the guys that President Biden says are “just an idea”?
