Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, members of the Proud Boys joined another white supremacist group, Patriot Prayer, in a downtown march on Saturday where they clashed with anti-fascist activists. This comes as Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler reveals that on August 4, Portland police found a hidden group of Patriot Prayer members on a rooftop with a cache of guns—right before the white supremacists took to the streets for a rally. No arrests were made that day, and Portland police instead fired rubber bullets at anti-fascist protesters at the march. Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw later said the counterprotesters were acting like children and were “mad because I kicked your butt.”
