A movement dismissed by media as not “a real thing” and by FBI Director Christopher Wray as “an ideology” was engaged in violent clashes at the Oregon Capitol in Salem on Sunday at a “right-wing” event billed as a Freedom Rally.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
FoxNews.com reported Salem Police arrested at least three people and urged others to stay away from the Capitol building as violence linked to “Antifa-aligned protesters” broke out.
CBS News reported: “Shortly before noon, approximately 100 individuals wearing black clothing and ballistic vests and carrying firearms, bats, skateboards, umbrellas, shields and gas masks arrived on the Capitol Mall grounds. Some individuals from the group carried Youth Liberation Front flags, a group known to espouse left-wing ideologies.”
The violence began a short time later.
“Victims reported their vehicles were damaged by paint filled balloons, rocks and other hard objects being thrown at them as they passed,” Fox News reported. “One vehicle sustained significant damage after a large tree limb was thrown through the front window into the vehicle’s passenger seat.”
Several criminal investigations have since been launched, Salem police said.
A man was ordered onto the ground by officers after drawing a weapon when his truck, flying an American flag, was vandalized and he was surrounded by members of a crowd, mostly wearing black, and pepper-sprayed.

The Washington Examiner reported video also captured of “left-wing protesters dressed in black and spray-painting across the man’s windshield and smashing the truck’s taillights.”
The The local Statesman Journal reported police declared the anti-fascist protest an “unlawful assembly.”
The report said, “Anti-fascist protesters on the sidewalks and in the street threw objects, such as paint-filled balloons and rocks, at a number of vehicles that drove by the Capitol with American flags and right-wing support flags, breaking some vehicles’ windows.”
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
