Video: Portland PO Demands Strickland & “Third Parties” (Me) Stop Talking About Two Players in 2016 Antifa Attack

Mike Strickland was summoned Wednesday to his Multnomah County Parole and Probation Officer (PO). As Strickland tells it, his PO demanded that the Portland man cease mentioning two people who were involved in the melee in July 2016, which resulted in Strickland drawing his legally possessed pistol to back off a converging crowd of Antifa and other protesters. Read about Strickland’s case here.

Strickland says that his PO gave him two choices, 1) Sign revised parole and probation conditions which forbid him from speaking about convicted hacker, police impersonator, bomb hoaxer, and conspirator against Strickland, Ben Kerensa, and self-described ‘peacemaker’ Malcolm Chaddock. Chaddock attempted to distract Strickland while the 400 pound Kerensa ran at him on the other side. Both men testified against Strickland at his trial.

Or, 2) Go before a Multnomah County judge and try to retain what’s left of his First Amendment rights.

Strickland once again will take his chances with a judge sometime in August.

But here’s the kicker. Strickland’s new gag order condition also included “third parties.” Since I’m the one who’s been chronicling his case since it happened, it appears that I’m the target of the PO’s ire. I can’t imagine that a document Strickland would sign would in any way extend to me. Good luck with getting me to shut up.

Here are some examples of Strickland talking about these two:

The PO told Strickland that this kind of talk represented “psychological abuse” of the two people. Strickland told me that on the list of psychologically abusive things was ‘using one’s size to intimidate and/or threaten another person.’ This is precisely what the two men attempted to do to Strickland.

Strickland would know something about what’s psychologically abusive. He was threatened with a 50 year prison sentence after being charged. That’s certainly “psychologically abusive.” Instead, he spent 41 days in jail – certainly “psychologically abusive.” His First and Second Amendment rights were stripped and therefore his ability to make a living. That’s “psychologically abusive.” His right to speak was eventually restored though he can’t video political events anymore which is most certainly “psychologically abusive.”

Strickland told me that his former PO said his behavior on Twitter did not rise to the level of intimidation of the two people. He has operated under those rules for the past two years. Now, with ten months left in his probation, Strickland is threatened with more punishment for using his freedom of speech.

Organizers of the anti-gun march and rally admitted at Strickland’s trial that they conspired to kick the videographer out of the rally, one of dozens that Strickland had covered in his role as an independent journalist.

His phalanx of attackers were magically transformed into ‘victims.’ Here are some of Strickland’s ‘victims’:

Only two of Strickland’s ‘victims’ were identified at trial because they were masked up or hid their faces.

See Strickland discuss what happened here:

Strickland’s case is under appeal at the Oregon Appeals Court.

It’s Long Past Time for a Federal Investigation of Portland’s Response to Antifa Domestic Terror Group. Even Senator Ted Cruz Thinks So.

Over the weekend illegally masked violent agents provocateurs known as “antifa” took over Portland’s downtown streets.

Or, as I called it, just another day.

 

But this time one prominent Constitutional expert was watching and said enough is enough. Senator Ted Cruz called for a federal investigation into Portland Mayor/Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler’s handling of antifa violence.

The people who call themselves “anti” fascist organized an un-permitted response to two separate legal marches by right-leaning groups and ended up clubbing two reporters covering the competing marches.

Quilette editor, Andy Ngo, was beaten so badly that he took himself to the ER:

The beating is hard to watch. Good thing someone got it on video because the police weren’t there to watch it … or stop it:

Well known attorney Harmeet Dhillon said that Ngo had been hospitalized with a brain bleed. Interesting that she would know that. Do you think that she’s Ngo’s attorney?

The thugs who threw rocks and what police believe may have been quick cement “milkshakes” also stole his camera equipment.

Here they are handing out the “milkshakes” from the back of a rented pick up. Notice no one is drinking them. It was 81º in Portland.

Ngo was in the ER and Antifa’s facebook page declared “J29 was a success for the people of Portland and showed that we will always stand up to fascism” and bragged about their concoction:

I’ve begged people to complain to the US Attorney’s Office or DOJ to investigate the political and police response to Antifa. There is a two-tiered system of justice in Multnomah County, Oregon as the Michael Strickland case shows. There is a First, Second and 14th Amendment case to be made against Portland’s one-party system of justice.

Mike Strickland’s case was the canary in the coal mine – Antifa’s ‘Victim Zero’ – on how local prosecutors and police blame the victim if he holds the wrong political views. His case happened before Berkeley, before the campus violence. Worse for him, Strickland drew his legally possessed concealed hand gun and backed off the advancing group of Antifa and other protesters who had already roughed him up and were coming back to do worse.

After police let him go with a ticket. Prosecutors, egged on by anti gun activists, ginned up 24 counts against Strickland, many of them felonies. The Antifa marauders were turned into victims. Here are two of them:

Strickland stood to go to prison for 50 years. So bogus was the case, that Strickland, who was stripped of his First and Second Amendment rights, was sentenced to 41-days of weekend jail. Strickland was ordered to never video another protest and to shut up about his case. As a convicted felon, he will never again be able to carry a gun or vote.

When he finally was allowed to talk about his 2016 case, a ‘protester’ with a cowbell came and drowned him out while police watched and did nothing.

Strickland’s case is on appeal at the Oregon State Court of Appeals. His attorney, Robert Barnes, thinks the case may go to the state Supreme Court. Oregon’s Leftist judiciary, which has failed to acknowledge the Antifa threat and its chilling effect on speech, is not up-to-speed yet.

Here’s what Barnes said of Strickland’s case after he argued at the Appeals Court:

With Harmeet Dhillon and Ted Cruz finally seeing this threat and Robert Barnes working on the Strickland case, we may finally get the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice’s attention. But only if you complain.
