Alleged Portland Shooter Identifies Himself As ‘100% Antifa’
The alleged Portland shooter suspected of killing Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson on Saturday has self-identified as an Antifa member, according to numerous social media posts. Michael Forest Reinoehl allegedly fatally shot Danielson and appeared in videos fleeing the scene that night.
Hundreds of Trump supporters formed a car caravan and headed to Portland over the weekend, where Antifa and other extremist groups have been rioting since the tragic death of George Floyd in May.
“Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight,” Reinoehl reportedly wrote in the post. “There are so many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s where the fight starts. If that’s as far as you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! Even if some of them are too ignorant to realize what antifa truly stands for. We do not want violence but we will not run from it either!”
He continued, “If the police continue to pick on and beat up innocent citizens that are peacefully voicing their objections, it must be met with equal force! We are currently living through a crucial point in Humanities evolution. We truly have an opportunity right now to fix everything. But it will be a fight like no other! It will be a war and like all wars there will be casualties. I was in the army and I hated it. I did not feel like fighting for them would ever be a good cause. Today’s protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms. This is a Cause to fight for This truly is fighting for my country! I have children that need to live in a world run by Common Sense and human decency. And I will do anything to make sure that happens. Now is the time to change the course of humanity. If we fold now just because they show some Force we will be lost for another hundred years. And I don’t think the planet will let us live that long if we don’t straighten shit up. Please be safe strong and United. I love you all”
According to The Post Millennial, Reinoehl was previously arrested for “and charged with illegally possessing a loaded firearm and other crimes” during a July Antifa riot. However, he was released and his charges were dropped.
