(RepublicanNews.org) – Video captured an activist gloating about a Patriot Prayer member’s shooting death over the weekend in Portland, Oregon.
The footage shows an unnamed female riling up a group of protesters gathered downtown on Saturday, August 29.
“If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention,” the woman said. Continuing, she stated the Portland community could “hold its own” without the assistance of the police. The clip concluded with her shouting she wasn’t “sad” that an “[expletive] fascist died tonight.”
“I am not sad that a f—ing fascist died tonight,” says a woman at the antifa gathering in downtown Portland. The crowd laughs and cheers. The ID of the deceased is not confirmed but he is believed to be a Trump & blue lives supporter. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/XV6471FSuF

Her comment referenced the shooting death of Aaron Danielson (aka Jay Bishop), a member of Patriot Prayer, a pro-Trump group based out of Portland and Vancouver, Washington.
Portland police reported the incident occurred around 8:45 p.m., shortly after a caravan of Trump supporters and counter-protesters clashed. However, the investigation is ongoing, and law enforcement officials have not indicated whether that demonstration was related to the shooting.
President Trump praised Bishop with a tweet that read, “Rest In Peace Jay!”
The president has repeatedly offered to send help to embattled Portland, but Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler continues to refuse the offer. Perhaps it’s time for new leadership in the city.
