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.

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

Once-Banned Strickland Back on PSU Campus to Address College Republicans About ‘Liberty’

Mike Strickland, the citizen journalist attacked by Antifa at a Black Lives Matter/Don’t Shoot Portland rally in 2016, is finally coming back to PSU. He’ll be a featured speaker at the College Republicans group on March 5th at 7pm.

Strickland was banned by the University after Antifa protesters attacked the journalist twice for filming the rally, provoking him to draw his legally concealed handgun to back them off. No shots were ever fired. In fact, the trained concealed handgun carrier kept his finger well away from the trigger.

The University, as well as Portland Community College, banned Strickland within mere days of his arrest for a period of two years even though the incident didn’t occur on any campus.

Though the incident didn’t occur near any of the campuses, Strickland was well known by campus administrators for reporting on the speeches, marches and antics of the University professors and protesters. Protesters included the Occupy, Antifa, IWW (Wobblies) and ISO, as well as the usual Portland Professional Protesters, Incorporated™ social justice, environmentalist, anti-Israel groups. Strickland’s reports on those campuses made national news. University and College administrators saw an opportunity to keep their well known antagonist off campus and took it.

Strickland could be known as Victim Zero. Before Ann Coulter, Milo Yianoppolous, Ben Shapiro and others were bullied off campuses due to the violent fiery temper tantrums by what has come to be known as Antifa protesters, Strickland was banned from campus on the say-so of Antifa radicals and due to the overzealous prosecution of Leftist prosecutor Kate Molina of the Multnomah County DA’s office.

The above-mentioned protesters will likely attempt to interrupt Strickland’s compelling talk.

On Tuesday evening Strickland plans to talk about liberty and how the First Amendment was “invalidated” by judges, college administrators and Antifa during and after the July 2016 incident.

They shouldn’t interrupt it. They should sit down, shut up, listen and learn because they may be next.

The Oregon Firearms Federation has set up a defense fund for Strickland. Give generously here.

‘Rose City Antifa’ Warns Victoria Taft of “Possible Consequences”

“Rose City Antifa,” or someone claiming to be from the group, has threatened the author of this website.

The message came via the website to the post “Antifa Labeled as “Terrorist” Group by DHS – Why Portland’s Strickland Attack Was Canary in Coalmine.

The post noted that the federal designation is a game-changer:

“For real victims, that means that there is another avenue for justice outside the Leftist Multnomah County Courthouse. And that means the possibilities of civil rights violations charges against  Antifa and the system of justice that rewards their violence with light sentences and low bail.

To sum up: Antifa is a violent, anarchistic group, with national and international ties, that uses violence and destruction as a weapon of terror. The Pacific Northwest is the biggest hotbed of this activity. If Portland, Oregon is ground zero, Mike Strickland was patient zero.”

Oddly, the group didn’t bother to respond to VictoriaTaft.com’s  post about its members being under scrutiny by Oregon authorities in the death of conservative videographer Leo Stratton.  

The group keeps a hit list similar to the one used by Southern Poverty Law Center.

A gunman who attacked the Family Research Council name the SPLC’s list as the reason. Like the rest of the country, clearly, the Portland Antifa gang is  well aware of this. He received 25 years to life in prison.

Someone also sent this email through the VictoriaTaft.com website appearing to claim ‘credit’ for Stratton’s death. See it here. 

Now comes another message to the website, this one as a comment which came in at 2:26 this morning.

The threatening message reads:

Hi Victoria, 

We see your racist nazi [sic] pal Sonny Yelliot [sic] is costing your blog [sic]. No surprise here you racist sympathizer [sic].

We are always watching you and we have associates all over.

This is a year of surprises including a veteran semi driver crashing in a fireball in perfect weather [sic].

You are bringing a lot of attention your way by posting photos of our comrades at city hall! Think about what your [sic] doing and think about the possible consequences.

The message ostensibly was sent by “Rose City Antifa.”

Let’s take a closer look.

The author of the comment, rife with bad grammar, is offended that “Sonny Yelliot” wrote a comment on the blog. Here’s what Yellott (correct spelling) wrote in a comment to this post:

“Love your involvement here Victoria Taft. We have met but I doubt yo [sic] will remember me out of the hordes you must encounter. Please include this address in your mailing list”

To which VictoriaTaft.com responded:

“I remember you, Sonny. Keep your head up! …and on a swivel.”

Sonny often commented via email on my radio shows in Portland. Who knew that we were both “Nazis”?

The next thing to note is:

“We are always watching you and we have associates all over.”

That’s creepy and threatening. The allusion to Stratton’s death is notable and will be shown to person investigating his death.

Finally comes the more overt threat:

“Think about what your [sic] doing and think about the possible consequences.”

Is it a threat or disinformation?

Good question. But I’ve got one more: 1911, Glock,  or hammerless S&W .38?
