Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
This protester in Portland, OR found out the hard way what happens when keeping it woke goes wrong….
Just to be clear here – the guy who showed up to protest Trump, got beat up by a bunch of Anqueefa, who were supposed to be on his side, because he had an American flag with him….
Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter or among the other conservative activists who descended into the area that day, many from out of town. He was one of hundreds of progressive Portlanders who had turned out to oppose the right-wing rally held at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
Many have assumed the tussle over a U.S. flag placed Welch squarely in the right-wing camp. Not so.
“I had felt like showing that a liberal, free Portland — or any major city, really — is much more American and much more numerous and strong than any of these interloping groups,” he said.
A “slightly progressive leftist” by his telling, Welch is a registered Democrat in Oregon, voting records show. He cast his ballot for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary and Hillary Clinton in the general election, he said. The 38-year-old line cook is also no stranger to street protests in Portland. He said he attended the Women’s March held during the weekend of Donald Trump’s inauguration. This summer, Welch, who works six days a week at a catering company, stopped by the Occupy ICE encampment on his days off to bring protesters water, toilet paper and sunblock, he said. He’s no fan of Trump or the president’s policies. Nor of Patriot Prayer, whose repeated rallies in Portland, Welch believes, have little purpose other than to inflame the city’s liberal residents.
“They’re just offensive,” he said.
That is why Welch said he decided to show up to the counter-protest with an American flag, an emblem more common among the conservative activists than those who have demonstrated against them.
You can’t make this shit up. The guy shows up to protest the same shit the Anqueefa turds claim to hate – Trump and all things Trump. But for some reason the American flag has now become associated with right wing extremism. This is the damage the left has done to their brand by siding with NFL protesters. Anqueefas and many others now assume that anyone who has pride in their country is a Trump-loving Nazi.
Meanwhile, this guy is a huge liberal. Even though he calls himself “slightly progressive leftist,” he just so happens to regularly attend any SJW protest within a 50 mile radius. “Slightly” indeed. And he’s carrying this flag to prove a point that liberals are being patriotic when they protest, because protesting is as American as apple pie. It’s actually a valid point that more people on the left should do because the right has tried to claim patriotism as their own.
And what happens? He gets the shit kicked out of him.
The Anqueefa thug initially tries to spank him for attempting to hold onto his personal property….
When that doesnt work he looks around like, “da fuq do i I do now?”
Naturally he beats him over the head and knocks him the fuck out….
And of course all of the poor guy’s “allies” just stand there and watch as a group of masked thugs beat up a liberal protester for carrying an American flag at a protest rally against Nazis.
Social justice sure is confusing….
Part of me wants to be angry, but part of me also wants to laugh. Because the guy who got his ass beat is obviously a moron too:
He’s no fan of Trump or the president’s policies. Nor of Patriot Prayer, whose repeated rallies in Portland, Welch believes, have little purpose other than to inflame the city’s liberal residents.
“They’re just offensive,” he said.
Rallies for things you don’t agree with have “little purpose other than to inflame the city’s liberal residents.”
Or you could just let people say things you disagree with and not get inflamed. Believe it or not it is possible, and as human beings we are in control of our own behavior.
The worst part is how the mainstream media continues to legitimize Anqueefa by calling them “anti-fascist protesters”:
NEW: Paul Welch was one of hundreds of progressive Portlanders who opposed a right-wing rally in downtown this month. An antifascist activist beat him bloody in the streets while dozens watched. Why? Welch was carrying an American flag. Here’s his story. https://t.co/973ERx25gs

It’s so ironic it hurts. Anqueefa always has been and always will be the exact opposite of anti-fascism. They’re literally a bunch of black shirts who go around beating the shit out of people while masked because those people have different political opinions. Ya know, like Nazis. Yet the left does pretty much nothing to publicly disassociate with them. It’s like they’re trying to lose.
