Portland June 10 March Against Sharia Cancelled

Portland June 10 March Against Sharia Cancelled

Wheeler's call for the rally to be cancelled comes amid a wider debate in the US about the First Amendment, often in liberal cities like Portland and Berkeley, California, and on college campuses, where violent protests between far-right and far-left protesters have derailed appearances by contentious figures. But the federal government has already granted a permit for the June 4 rally, the mayor said.

The ACLU of OR posted more about their opinion on Twitter. The May 26 Portland train stabbing was reportedly sparked after the alleged attacker began yelling hate speech and anti-Muslim slurs at two young women. During the arraignment yesterday, the accused shouted, you call it terrorism, I call it patriotism.

The survivor of a stabbing attack in Portland, Oregon, that left two people dead and allegedly involved hate speech told ABC News that it is the "civic duty" and "moral responsibility" of all Portland residents to make sure all who live there feel at home.

- A video camera inside a patrol auto captured Christian saying, "I just stabbed a bunch of (expletive) in their neck".

"I want to thank everyone for everything they've had to say today", she said.

In the probable cause affidavit, prosecutors said video feeds in the back of a patrol auto captured Christian saying after his arrest that he had stabbed three people in the neck. "I'm happy now. I can rest easy". Christian did not enter a plea and has another court date June 7. According to the ACLU of OR, despite Mayor Wheeler's emotional and impassioned plea, the government can't take away (OR refuse to grant) a permit simply because they don't like the opinion of demonstrators.

"Our city is in mourning, our community's anger is real, and the timing and subject of these events can only exacerbate an already hard situation", Wheeler said, adding that the permits should be revoked.

Joey Gibson, the rally's organizer, condemned Christian in a phone interview with The AP and said he would not tolerate any Nazi presence at the upcoming event.

As KGW 8 reports, Jeremy Joseph Christian was a self-proclaimed white supremacist and had attended alt-right events similar to the one planned for June 4 in the past. "He frequently used the n-word and saluted Hitler".

Presler, in a comment posted to Facebook, blasted Wheeler, calling the mayor's efforts an "astonishingly blatant attempt to suppress freedom of discourse" and accusing him of making "disparaging and patently false statements" about his organization, ACT for America.

However, the plaza right by Portland City Hall is actually federal property, and Wheeler is trying to get federal authorities to revoke the permits for the groups involved in a pair of June events. He asked the federal government not to issue a permit for Presler's event. What Wheeler seems to have forgotten (assuming he ever knew) is that we don't have protections for free speech because the founders were anxious about citizens being punished for saying popular things.

The "March Against Sharia", which Gibson is also involved in, says Islamic law "is incompatible with our Constitution and American values".

"Standing against Sharia Law is standing up for Muslims, because Muslims are the number one victims to Sharia law", Gibson said.

Fletcher called the two men who died - identified by police as Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Ricky John Best, 53 - "true heroes" for whom the "entire city of Portland" is in mourning.
