On Saturday August 17th, the Neo-Nazi Proud Boys were marching in the Columbus suburb of Dublin, where they feel good and comfortable. Their comfortable support was not just for the President who supported them on twitter, but for their fellow Proud Boys in Portland Oregon. That bunch of fascists was marching alongside the group that organized the event, Patriot Prayer, and under the protection of an exceedingly violent Neo-Nazi organization called the American Guard.

Fascists call for law and order, Mayor's removal and march with police escort to attack a vigil for police shooting victim in Portland
Saturday night in Portland, the fascist group Patriot Prayer, along with the usual Proud Boy hangers on and other associated groups held a rally demanding the removal of Mayor Wheeler for failing to suppress anti-police brutality protestors. They came dressed in T-shirts covered in slogans proclaiming violence and even public executions as well as the standard khakis and yellow on black polo shirts. The group then marched with police escort to a vigil being held protesting the death of Patrick Kimmons on September 30th, and immediately attacked to prevent a flag from being burned.
Yesterday, August 4th, for the second time in under 40 days, Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys marched against immigration and support of President Donald Trump. For the second time, police launched an unprovoked attack against antifascist protestors without warning but with their full arsenal of crowd control weapons. Tune 30th march by the same group attempted to use police escort to reach and attack an anti-ice encampment.
Two days after Portland Police provided background support to Department of Homeland Security riot police to dismantle the blockade by the Occupy ICE movement a fascist group marched. The June 30th march by Patriot Prayer had a permit and was by design in opposition to the nationwide #familiesbelongtogether rallies organized by affiliates of the Democratic Party.
Newly Re-Vamped Atlantic Magazine calls for the Violent Suppression of Anti-Fascist Activists in Major Editorial
It has been ten days since The Atlantic, a flagship liberal publication since it's founding in 1857 in Boston, was purchased by Laurene Powell Jobs for an undisclosed sum on July 29th. The first issue since this purchase will be lead by a major editorial from their Contributing Editor Peter Beinart. That particular 2200 word screed has already appeared on the Atlantic's website and been boosted on social media at some cost. This can only be seen in context as a declaration of new editorial line, policy and intent.
