On Saturday, a 19-year-old so-called "anti-fascist" protester was arrested after she punched and spat on demonstrators at a #HimToo rally in Portland.
The #HimToo rally was organized by conservative activist Haley Adams to draw awareness to the sexual victimization of men and the falsely accused. Left-wing counter-protesters showed up to disrupt the event. Demonstrators and at least one reporter on site were harassed and assaulted by the agitators. The rally ended with a total of six arrests.
In footage captured by independent journalist and Quillette Magazine editor Andy C. Ngo, a young Antifa counter-protester later identified as Hannah R. McClintock by the Portland Police Bureau confronts male demonstrators at the rally. Backed by a chant of "We believe survivors" by her fellow Antifa activists, McClintock gets herself into a fighting stance and waves on the demonstrators to apparently engage in a physical altercation with her. She also spits on them as she repeatedly yells the word "b****."
Later in the video, McClintock physically assaults the male demonstrators.
Two #HimToo activists are heard in the video directing their fellow protesters not to fight back against the female and to "calm down."
"Let it happen, let it happen," says one of the protesters. "Don't touch her. Let her attack us, let her attack us."
Apparently failing to elicit the reaction she wants, the aggressive Antifa female continues with her antics. McClintock repeatedly gets in the men's faces and spits on them yet again.
"It's all good, it's all good," a #HimToo protester says calmly in response. "Let her spit. It's all good."
McClintock assaults a #HimToo protester once again before a swarm of Portland officers take her away.
"McClintock was arrested near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street. McClintock was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Harassment," says a press release from the Portland Police Bureau.
"The Portland Police Bureau spent considerable time planning for today's demonstration and counter demonstration," Chief Danielle Outlaw said. "We used significant resources and attempted to keep opposing groups apart, both when they were in the parks and as they traveled through downtown. Our goal was to keep all people in the community safe."
"The Police Bureau is aware that several instances of criminal behavior were filmed and broadcast on a various media platforms," reads the press release from the bureau. "These crimes may include, but are not limited to: Disorderly Conduct, Assault, Theft, and Reckless Burning. Investigators will be conducting follow-up which may lead to arrests at a later time."
"If you were the victim of a crime during this protest event, you are encouraged to file a police report," adds the bureau.
At least one reporter was victimized by Antifa at the rally. "I was assaulted by a mob of masked individuals in black. They also targeted my equipment. They called me a fascist & Islamophobe. They said my parents & grandparents would be ashamed of me," said Ngo. "It feels surreal to be treated this way by people who don’t even know me."
