A long-time Antifa activist and Leftist video chronicler of the Portland protest movement has been arrested for a string of attacks on synagogues and mosques, and the local media seem to be very eager to erase his one-sided, radical ties.
Portland Police says Mike Bivins was arrested after he admitted to the attacks against three synagogues and a mosque.
Bivins’s video work has been seen on national news stations over the years. He gained notoriety during the explosion of Antifa violence before the 2016 election.
Bivins, who’s 34, went to the Portland Fox TV affiliate and demanded to see a reporter, to whom he confessed the attacks.
According to Fox 12 Portland, Bivins admitted attacking the houses of worship. But besides being a “racist” act and a violation of a variety of local and state ordinances, it’s unclear what prompted the outbursts of violence except that they occurred on days that ended in a y.
Attacking houses of worship is considered a civil rights violation and possible terrorism.
Federal officials have been asked to get involved to investigate possible civil rights and hate crimes, and terrorist connections.
Bivins’s rash of attacks began on April 30, 2022, at Congregation Shir Tikvah and continued at Congregation Beth Israel on May 2 with pro-Nazi graffiti written outside and evidence of a small fire. The following day, police say, Bivins set fire to the Muslim Community Center of Portland, which was full of people. No one was hurt. The next day, Bivins is alleged to have attacked Congregation Beth Israel again by hurling a rock through the window of the synagogue.
So, he's either a Nazi following Antifa member, or he was carrying out false flag operations, designed to inflame sentiment again
Portland arson investigators are looking into whether Bivins is connected to any other attacks on local synagogues, mosques, or churches.
