(ThePatriotSource.com)- After 4Chan users and other online commentators identified an Antifa activist as a suspect in the brutal beating of an innocent man in Portland, officers from the city have identified the suspect as 25-year-old Marquise Love. In a statement, the Portland Police Bureau announced an operation into an assault that took place in Portland’s downtown area on Sunday evening.
“Yesterday, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) began investigation of an assault that occurred in the downtown area where an adult male associated to a white pick-up truck was violently assaulted,” the bureau announced. “Investigators positively identified the suspect as 25 year-old Marquise Love. Investigators made attempts to contact Love but could not locate him.”
Conservatives have speculated for two days that the police would eventually arrest Love in connection to the incident. The man (allegedly) appeared in video footage kicking an innocent Portland man in the head when he was on the ground, after being brutally beaten by other Antifa activists. The man was left unconscious after Love (allegedly) attacked him.

The police urged the public not to contact Love, likely because they’re aware online activists have already spend a huge amount of time tracking the man down and identifying him. 4Chan users posted Love’s name, Facebook profile, and other information online after they realized he appears to be the man responsible for committing a violent act of political extremism.
The Post Millennial reports how Love is not a first-time offender, having been arrested for fourth-degree assault and harassment in 2017. It was a domestic violence case that sent him to the Washington County Community Corrections Center. It’s probably no surprise to you that an Antifa activist has a history of violence.
But it’s a peaceful protest, right?
The Portland Police Bureau said that the victim of the attack, Adam Haner, is recovering and has been released from the hospital. Rumors circulated that Haner had died after the attack, following a post made by Love in which he suggested he might get charged with murder for attacking a “racist.”
When will the Democrats admit there is a huge problem with political violence? How many more attacks does there need to be before they actually address it?
