Portland’s Professional Protesters™ have made stopping traffic a hallmark of their activism. Timid politicians, such as Mayor Ted Wheeler, allow Antifa and other Leftist protesters to halt traffic with impunity. As a result, there’s an outsized sense of power that comes from being able to stop someone on a whim. But on Saturday night one of Antifa’s most notorious activists found out that not everyone stops on his command.
Sean D. Kealiher was killed in front of the unofficial Antifa headquarters, Cider Riot, while trying to stop a speeding SUV.
Kealiher reportedly tried to halt an SUV and was run over. By the time the cops got there, Kealiher had been dragged into a private car and dumped at a local hospital where he died. The NE Portland cidery was quiet.
There isn’t a lot of information about the attack. That’s by design, of course. The people who wear masks to hide their identities took to Twitter to order silence to the media and to the “pigs”:
The tweets say:
“Sean/Armenios [sic] family has asked that we not talk to the press.
“No media response at all. none [sic]. no talking to them period. [sic] please respect this. [sic]”
“Your words can impact the survivors, the organizing on a large scale and the family getting support. Don’t let the press platform off this and dont [sic] let the pigs build cases. Consider not telling stories on public fb pages/organizing pages (keep it in the community).///”
The Portland Police are investigating it as a homicide. The medical examiner has determined that it was a homicide from blunt force internal injuries.
The Antifa bar reportedly was filled with friendlies. A fight reportedly broke out and, before too long, Kealiher was stepping into the street to stop an SUV speeding away. Shots reportedly were fired at the SUV by Antifa members.
Judging by Antifa’s reaction this looks like fratricide.
A Facebook post by someone who appears to be with Patriot Prayer held additional information culled from social media reports. The info has not been verified:
Despite the apparent circumstances of his death, Kealiher, who also goes by his nom de guerre, “Armeanio,” is being groomed for martyr status:
May he rest in power as we carry on in his honor.
After Kealiher was hit there reportedly were shots fired at the SUV. The SUV either hit, or came close to hitting, the Democratic Party headquarters in Portland.
Antifa and local anarchists, but I repeat myself, then vandalized the DPO:
Portland’s Police Commissioner and Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has been stridently on the side of Antifa over law-abiding Portlanders, sent sympathies to the violent thug and his family:
See those roses in the photo above? Those represent Rose City Antifa.
Though it goes without saying, Antifa is a continuing criminal enterprise that apparently derives funds to offer the family of this thug “support.” From whence does that “support” come?
It has also encourages members and allies to obstruct justice and suborn perjury.
Why Ted Wheeler continues to support these Leftist thugs is a mystery. But that’s (social) ‘justice’ in Multnomah county.
Here’s KGW TV’s story about it:
