A horrifying video is going viral this weekend showing a mob in Portland, Oregon viciously beating a man unconscious after he tried to help another man who had been assaulted for bringing an American flag to a protest.
The video was filmed at a protest over the death of George Floyd, who was killed in police custody on Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was captured by journalist Andy Ngo, who captioned it, “On 30 May 2020, a man brought an American flag to the antifa/BLM protest (later riot) in Portland. He is confronted and then sucker-punched by a man wearing a “F— Trump” shirt. The mob rushed in to beat him. He never let go of the flag. Portland Police did not help.”

“Knocked his motherfuckin’ ass out,” one protester can be heard taunting in the video, while another yells, “Black lives matter, faggot.”
Violence has erupted all over America over the death of Floyd even though Derek Chauvin, the officer who was seen kneeling on his neck, has been arrested for his role in the murder. President Donald Trump also immediately called for the Department of Justice to investigate the death, yet radical left-wingers have still taken this opportunity to launch chaos and violence all over the country.
What happened to Floyd is a travesty, but it is also a tragedy that his death is being used as an excuse to incite violence and hate all over America. There is never an excuse for violence and looting, and those who are using his death to do this should be ashamed of themselves.
