A video of protests in Portland, Oregon has garnered thousands of views and appreciative applause for a man who taught one thug a hard lesson.
Journalist Andy Ngo posted a video from over the weekend, directing viewers to watch as a “masked antifa in Portland opened a black man’s car door during a violent protest.”

The video showed one of a group of men approach a parked car and brazenly open the driver side door, unleashing a very angry man who quickly showed the masked protester to think twice next time he touches someone else’s property.
The man in the car deftly took down the apparent antifa goon, as the other protesters in the group scattered quickly after the masked man was introduced to the sidewalk.
🤣😂🤣😂 watch them scurry away like the cockroaches they are.

“Don’t ever, ever come near my vehicle again! Do you understand me?” the man shouted as he pinned the culprit to the ground.
“Do you understand me?!’ he repeated, commanding the thug to “get up” as the coward lamely tried to excuse his actions.
Another video showed a closer view of the moment.

As the man reentered his car and was safely behind the closed door, the rest of the squad now found their voices in a show of bravado, telling him to “get the f— out of here” while gesturing. “That’s on video!”

“What was that?” one man could be heard asking on the video, processing the exchange.
A moment later, someone apparently made a discovery that sparked a sort of call to arms, as he alerted the others that the man actually had arrows on the back seat of his car.
“Hey! We need a bunch of people down here now!” he shouted.
So… They’re suddenly upset he has arrows in his car, did I hear that right? Who cares? Why does he not have the right to have arrows? Is the 2nd Amendment going to be taken back to a time before the musket even? To a point where even arrows aren’t allowed?

They want to be the only one with weapons.

Meanwhile, the person with the camera discovered a cell phone had been dropped during the scuffle. He sparked savage social media mockery for his one-man campaign to find the rightful owner of the phone.
“Is there a lost and found”

Absolutely, why would anyone think to ask about a lost and found during a protest. These kids are so out of touch.

President Trump addressed the violence in Oregon city, lauding efforts by federal officers who were sent to Portland to diffuse the chaos.
“Portland was totally out of control, and they went in, and I guess we have many people right now in jail. We very much quelled it, and if it starts again, we’ll quell it again very easily. It’s not hard to do, if you know what you’re doing,” the president said during a Monday morning press conference.
The unidentified man in the car in Ngo’s video was hailed by viewers for his decisive action against the cowards and many thought more pushback like his will likely be quite effective. Others speculated about who the man actually was.
One tweet claimed the man was armed and there to “defend the justice center.”
This individual sitting in the vehicle is armed. He has told other protesters that he is armed, and is here to “defend the justice center”. #PortlandProtest #PDXprotest #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/gCyp5Ct9lS

The best part about this is he gets back in his vehicle and proceeds to get back to his nap, giving no fucks about what they may try to do to him next.
