A rally in Portland, Oregon organized by Joey Gibson, who is running for U.S. Senate as a Republican in Washington state was declared a riot on Saturday night, the Oregonian reports.

In a video posted by independent journalist Mike Bivins, one of the right-wingers appears to throw a heavy metal trash trash can lid at a what appears to be a much smaller woman.

At one point there was a brawl involving what appeared to be at least 100 people from both sides, throwing smoke bombs and then exchanging blows.

The protests have been regular occurrences, taxing the city’s resources as both sides are seemingly eager for violence.

A local weekly covering the protest reported hearing police officers discussing strategy at Starbucks, with one of the cops heard saying that the city should “just let them fight.”

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.
