(Worthy News) - A progressive and registered Democrat was assaulted by militant leftists earlier this month for carrying an American flag at a protest in Portland, Oregon, and is recovering from his injuries.
Paul Welch was given a concussion and a severe laceration, requiring four staples in his head, after he refused to give black-clad Antifa members his "fascist" American flag, the Oregonian reported. Welch then took a club to the head and collapsed to the ground, blood pooling around him.
In downtown Portland on August 4, Welch joined a crowd of progressives protesting a rally by the group Patriot Prayer, which they consider right-wing. Welch said he wanted to carry Old Glory to show that those in liberal cities have pride in America. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
