A group of Trump supporters who traveled to Olympia, Washington, to protest a genuine white supremacist event wound up being harassed and assault by Antifa.
Included among the victims was a woman.
According to Reggie Axtell, a member of the Portland, Oregon-based pro-free-speech, pro-liberty fraternity Patriot Prayer, he and other Portland locals traveled to Olympia last Saturday to protest and march against a scheduled Hammerskins rally.
The Hammerskins are actual white supremacists.
“The Hammerskin Nation is a white supremacist group formed in 1988 in Dallas, Texas. … Many of its members have been convicted of harassment, assault and murder,” the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium notes.
Unlike the fake white supremacist bogeyman invented by the left — and subsequently used to smear conservative voices, including the black ones — these guys are for real.
(Even Daryl Davis, a renowned black activist known for inspiring Ku Klux Klan members to give up their robes, has been smeared as a white supremacist by the left.)
But when Axtell and his allies arrived at the rally to protest the Hammerskins, they found nobody there but members of the radical left-wing terrorist group Antifa.
“When we showed up, there were no Hammerskins,” he wrote in a Facebook post published Saturday afternoon. “[B]ut Antifa freaked out and hundreds of them chased the six of us on foot. We can’t let this continue. This IS domestic terrorism, this is what Antifa groups want to do to everyone who disagrees with Communism.”

“Full grown men focused not on the men in our group, but on Haley Adams, a woman, and Alyssa, a trans POC,” Axtell’s Facebook post continued. “We found refuge in a Patriot’s home, but know that Antifa must not be allowed to continue silencing, intimidating, harassing, doxxing, assaulting, sexually assaulting, and even attempting to murder those who disagree with them, mob rule such as they did today must not continue.”
“Arrests were thankfully made. Change is coming, and its time to stop this from happening in Portland. Its time to get Portland back on track. Vote Alyssa Vinsonhaler for Portland City Council.”
The unseen woman operating the camera in the videos above is Haley Adams, a member of the fellow Portland-based free speech group Portland’s Liberation.
It’s unclear why the Hammerskins never showed up for their own event. Portland-based citizen journalist Brandon Brown, who also attended the event and suffered injuries as a result, has speculated that perhaps the rally had been a hoax:
Antifa stole my camera equipment today as I tried to cover a Nazi Hammerskins rally with a Antifa counter protest. The rally was a hoax. So Antifa was aggressive with myself & Portland’s Liberation who where there to accompany me & protest the Hammerskins. The swelling is notable pic.twitter.com/fPSGusN8nh

The police presence was wholly inadequate. Backup responded quickly. But they should have been on site in greater numbers. https://t.co/iLTYOzhca8

After Axtell and his allies were chased from the event for having the apparent audacity to try and protest white supremacists, Antifa celebrated the assault on them by posting a defamatory story accusing them of also being white supremacists.
“Portland’s Haley Adams and her crew, in a bizarre twist, announced ahead of time that they were going to come stand shoulder to shoulder with ‘commies’ to fight Nazis,” they wrote on the Antifa-linked website It’s Going Down.
Besides spewing Antifa propaganda, the site has also previously taken credit for pouring concrete on tracks outside Olympia, Washington. It was on those same tracks that a train derailed in 2017, leaving three dead and dozens injured:
Earlier this year, a prominent #Antifa website published an article tacking credit for the sabotage of train tracks in Olympia, WA. In this article they claimed to have poured concrete on the tracks. It has since been deleted. #Amtrak pic.twitter.com/aHfwdSM1ce

“It’s unclear whether they’re that stupid, and this was a sincere attempt, or whether this was yet another convoluted grift,” Antifa’s celebratory post continues.
“Regardless, nobody has forgotten that she is a self proclaimed white nationalist. She and her crew were energetically escorted away by a crew of 60 people who didn’t want to hang out with white nationalists. One unsuspecting onlooker described chuckling at the pleasant surprise of watching the fascists get ‘told to f–k off by a chorus of protesters with drums, vuvuzelas and the like.'”
According to the radical far-left, Haley and other Portland-based free speech activists are all white supremacists, including Enrique Tarrio, a brown-skinned Cuban minority who leads the group known as the Proud Boys and likely has more brown skin on his thumb than the average Antifa member has on his or her whole body.
And according to the radical far-left, peaceful free speech activists like Axtell, Brown, Adams and Tarrio are the real fascists, whereas the violent Antifa thugs who assault and harass people, vandalize property and attack the police are the real anti-fascists.
For more examples of Antifa’s very bizarre brand of “anti-fascism,” check the footage below:
Hey everyone, so I was filming, six Patriots, including Haley Adams and Alyssa Vinsonhaler, a Portland City Council Candidate, and myself, went to Olympia to counterprotest the planned Hammerskins march today, as we’re against Neo Nazis. When we showed up, there were no Hammerskins, but Antifa freaked out and hundreds of them chased the six of us on foot. We can’t let this continue. This IS domestic terrorism, this is what Antifa groups want to do to everyone who disagrees with Communism. Full grown men focused not on the men in our group, but on Haley Adams, a woman, and Alyssa, a trans POC. We found refuge in a Patriot’s home, but know that Antifa must not be allowed to continue silencing, intimidating, harassing, doxxing, assaulting, sexually assaulting, and even attempting to murder those who disagree with them, mob rule such as they did today must not continue. Arrests were thankfully made. Change is coming, and its time to stop this from happening in Portland. Its time to get Portland back on track. Vote Alyssa Vinsonhaler for Portland City Council.

It’s not clear which dictionary, if any, defines THIS as “anti-fascism” …
