Link to David Irving's Action Report:  http://www.fpp.co.uk/online/index.html

"A number of guests arrived for Saturday night's Portland, Oregon ("Rose City") talk by David Irving dressed in black, misunderstanding perhaps that this hotel was the decoy and that masks were not de rigeur. Or perhaps these uglies came for a Halloween party? Disruptive activities continued at a secondary location, the Portland Embassy Suites, where masked Leftist demonstrators failed even to find the meeting room. Leftist thugs also tried to break up David Irving's Sunday afternoon lecture on Hitler at Seattle's downtown Hilton Hotel. They failed. The hotel security staff fought back courageously, police and firemen did the rest, and arrests were made. The talk at the Seattle Hilton went ahead as planned."

..................

Dunno. Sounds like bs. If it was a decoy why not name the place? (La Quinta Inn). And why name Embassy Suites?

And Irving is white washing what happened at his Seattle talk. It went ahead, but hardly "as planned":

David Irving Speaking Event Disrupted
Sun, 11/04/2012 - 4:22pm — Anonymous

On November 4, 2012 David Irving-Nazi apologist and holocaust denier-- came to Seattle to give a reading from his new book, Hitler and I. Local anarchists and anti-racist organizers investigated and obtained the location, which was the Hilton on 6th and University. In a cruel twist of irony, the room the reading was convened in was named after the Chinook, a Northwestern indigenous tribe.

About 20 anti-fascists arrived on location and, pouring out of the elevators on the 10th floor, crowded around the open door of the event. A security guard, who looked as if they would fit in at any Volksfront meeting, barred the entrance and assaulted four protesters as chants of "Racist, Sexist, Anti-Gay, David Irving GO AWAY!" filled the hall. Curious seminar attendees for a separate event joined the raucous crowd, shouting their approval for anti-Nazi sentiment. Reading attendees were approximately the same in number, a group of dour white men glaring ineffectually behind Irving's hired muscle, who called the angry anti-racists "Zionists." Two of the protesters were also physical assaulted by a hotel employee.

Hotel staff announced that police had been called, and as the neo-Nazis' fascist comrades rushed to the scene to protect Irving's event, the antifa crowd dispersed and got to safety. No arrests were made.

If you would like to contact the Hilton's general manager to voice your disapproval of them allowing this reading in their hotel, call 206-695-6026.

If you would like to contact David Irving to tell him that fascists are not welcome in our communities, call 877-442-7904. His e-mail is  focalp@aol.com.

antifa supporter

If you oppose anti-semitism, you must be a "zionist". This is fatuity on a par with "If you criticize Israel, you must be an anti-semite".

But let's be clear about the breadth of this in Portland "progressive" circles: there are several regular posters on indy (not just Mapes) who make the same kind of claims, all the while agreeing with the Nazis about the control of elections by "Jewish money", the need to deport members of Jewish organizations, the control over police policy by Jews, as well as the more generic "free speech" for anti-semites. Look it up.

The Rose City Antifa and ARA threaten Portland with vigilante violence 19.Mar.2013 08:51

Antifas are Violent

The Rose City Antifa and their allied organization, Anti-Racist Action, both threaten vigilante-style violence, and both the Rose City Antifa and Anti-Racist Action express their contempt for the Rule of Law.

"We don't believe in waiting for the police to handle the fascists and racists, either. We know their job is to protect and serve us with harassment, beatings and arrests. We know that institutions like the police and prisons can never be "fixed" or "reformed" if their function is to maintain a racist and homophobic power structure. We believe that we need a dedicated and large force of militant antifascists with great intelligence, analysis, and dedication to crushing emerging extreme Right and fascist movements." - Rose City Antifa website.

"If you can get away it [sic], carry weapons, or if there's a chance you might get searched by cops, carry items that can be used as weapons in a pinch (hefty flagpoles, thick placard sticks, batteries, maglights, bike locks).... And don't forget your masks—nothing makes the fascists tremble like a group of black-clad, balaclava-wearing Antifa bearing down on them." - Anti-Racist Action website.

"On May 19, 2012, up to 20 people wearing masks and black clothes entered the Ashford House Restaurant in Tinley Park (a suburb of Chicago) and used bats and hammers to beat patrons who were attending the fifth annual White Nationalist Economic Summit and Illinois White Nationalist Meet-and-Greet. Five members of Hoosier Anti-Racist Movement, which is part of the Anti-Racist Action Network, were subsequently charged with felony counts of mob action, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property." - Anti-Racist Action Wikipedia page.

"On April 15, 2011, ARA members confronted the National Socialist Movement's annual conference in Pemberton, New Jersey. A melee ensued with reports indicating that four members of the NSM being hospitalized and the conference being shut down." - Anti-Racist Action Wikipedia page.

The Rose City Antifa and their allied organization, Anti-Racist Action, are violent extremists who want to replace the Rule of Law with Mob Rule under the Diktat of the anonymous Antifa and Anti-Racist Action thugs and their anonymous leaders.

rocks through windows at a Chase Bank and a U.S. Bank. A Walgreens window was also smashed. Portland Anarchist websites announced that their October 11, 2012 riot was in retaliation for Grand Jury proceedings against the four Portland Anarchists who were arrested by the FBI on July 25, 2012.

November 5, 2012 - Antifa member Sergey Yefimobich Turzhanskiy, 24, was arrested just after police said he threw a fire bomb at an unoccupied police cruiser parked in the North Precinct parking lot in the 400 block of NE Emerson Street in Portland.

The members of the Rose City Antifa, who have frequently vandalized banks, shops, restaurants, and cars throughout Portland, and who despise the Police and the Rule of Law, claim to be the protectors of justice in the community. In truth, the Rose City Antifa have a history of vandalism and violent threats against the law-abiding citizens of the community. No one should support the Rose City Antifa or their smear campaigns and mob violence.
