There are two things we know about Antifa thugs like the ones controlling the streets of cities like Portland and Seattle. First, they’re cowards who only operate in large numbers to keep themselves safe. Second, the smaller the group they confront, the more bold they get. This, too, highlights their inherent cowardice.
We don’t know the context of what happened prior to this video, but the numbers and aggression seem to point to targeted expulsion from Antifa “territory.” They felt very confident with a large group of people against four who seemed to either be counter-protesters or simply people in the wrong place at the wrong time. Either way, this is assault caught on camera, assault that should lead to a police investigation, arrest, and prosecution.
This is what antifa do to people they encounter in the street. Watch them assault and hit a man walking away from the antifa riot in SE Portland. They bring bats precisely for this purpose. #PortlandRiots #antifa Video by @VenturaReport. pic.twitter.com/AfxmVHHk6K

Except, this is Portland, their home turf where feckless Democratic leadership no longer considers crimes by Antifa thugs to be prosecution-worthy. That’s why Oregon state police have stood down. They grew tired of prosecutors in the county failing to do their jobs.
Of course, sometimes local Portland police will feel an obligation to defy their orders and act against aggressors. Case-in-point: An incident two nights ago when a man was hit by pepper spray twice before getting hit by pepper bullets twice. Then, he was tackled and apparently arrested. What did he do? Was he attacking local citizens, destroying private property, or participating in attacks on federal buildings? No. He went after Portland police themselves. That may be the only way to draw their attention.
In many ways, we cannot blame law enforcement. After all, they’re simply following orders from Portland’s leadership, particularly Mayor Ted Wheeler. Nevertheless, it’s a shame to see any cops unwilling to protect and serve based solely on orders from city hall. It just doesn’t seem right.
Whatever these thugs were doing, they always seem to only be bold enough to act when they have superior numbers. Bats in hand and with plenty of backup, these Antifa hoodlums overcame their personal inadequacies.
Patriots stepping up to save independent media from COVID-19 woes
We were on the verge of a disastrous end, but you guys have been stepping up big time. We’re almost there.
This year has been a roller-coaster ride for tens of millions of Americans. We’ve experienced the hardest economic downturn in history thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns and many are still trying to recover. We’re among them. Despite record-breaking surges in traffic, our revenue has fallen dramatically. It’s strange knowing that we’re working harder and getting the truth out to more people, yet revenue on the site plummeted.
We have called on our patriotic readers and podcast listeners to pitch in what they can to help. The outpouring of support has been tremendous and extremely humbling. As a conservative, I have a hard time “begging” for funds to keep our news outlet running, but COVID-19 lockdowns and subsequent reduction of revenues have made it necessary. Nevertheless, the last month has shown us that patriots appreciate pro-American news as a contrast to the anti-American mainstream media outlets spreading lies incessantly.
We asked for help and you guys have been delivering. We raised over $3200, enough to keep us going for the rest of August and part of September! I cannot stress how much of a blessing this has been for not only NOQ Report as an organization but also for my family. This isn’t a hobby; we operate NOQ Report and all of the podcasts associated with it as a more-than-full-time job. Every day we’re producing tons of content and spreading the truth that mainstream media refuses to report. Even when they do report it, they do so with a leftist slant while pretending to be unbiased. We do not use subterfuge. We are unabashedly conservative in our opinion but the news we report is factual. It all comes from a conservative, America First perspective, but we do not lie.
This isn’t about propaganda. If it were, we would be no better than the mainstream media outlets we abhor. Instead, we focus on the truth because we know that being honest gives us credibility. Besides, conservatives almost always have the truth on our side.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $8,300 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready to talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
