    Portland

    On Saturday, a convoy of more than 600 vehicles of Donald Trump supporters drove through the city, with clashes reported by the police.

    The victim, a white Trump supporter, was shot in the chest, according to independent media reporters. Medical crews responded and pronounced him dead at the scene. Antifa burned a US flag to celebrate the death of the white man. They also called him a “fascist” despite not knowing who he is.

    Antifa nevertheless cheered the death of the victim on social media.

    Independent journalist Andy Ngô noted that most violent Antifa protesters arrested by the police in Portland so far were quickly released, including those carrying weapons.

    To stop the ongoing protests, President Trump has offered to send federal law enforcement personnel to the city, but Mayor Ted Wheeler rejected the aid, accusing Trump of “politics of division and demagoguery”. Despite Wheeler’s anti-Trump pronouncements, leftist protesters are demanding his resignation.

    Democrats meanwhile have cause for concern in watching their support in Wisconsin dwindle after Black Lives Matter protests erupted in the small city of Kenosha.

    In June, 61 percent of Wisconsin residents approved of Black Lives Matter rallies. In August, the numbers were evenly split of 48 percent for to 48 percent against.

    The shift is due largely because of white Wisconsinites signalling 51 percent disapproval and a 45 percent approval. In June, it had been 59 percent approval rating against 38 percent disapproving. The tables have clearly been turned.

    Among Republicans the rating went from a 49 percent unfavorable and 32 percent favorable to a 71 percent unfavorable.
