I’m tired of these Antifa claiming they are fighting fascists and racists, where in reality they are the REAL fascists and the racists.
In fact, it is not their opposition that is violent, it’s themselves. Take the example of pro-Antifa “journalist” Mike Bivins. Bivins has just been arrested for arson in the cases of the burning of two synagogues and a mosque. In the case of the mosque, Bivins tried to burn the occupants to death.
Would it surprise you to find out that this occurred in the Portland, Oregon area? If so, why? Why does Antifa commit such acts of violence?
Well, the answer is simple, because the cities are run by Democrats and they are birds of a feather, and because they can get away with it.

A Beaverton Police Detective followed up, coordinated with Portland Police, and Bivins was taken into custody. The Portland Police Bureau is grateful to the Portland Fire & Rescue Investigation Unit, the Beaverton Police Department, and KPTV staff for their assistance and collaboration in this case.
Additional investigation is ongoing and further charges are possible. PPB detectives have also been in contact with federal authorities regarding these cases. If anyone has information about Bivins or any of these crimes, they’re asked to contact Detective Meredith Hopper at (503)823-3408 or [email protected] . Please refer to case number 22-118101
Here’s a report from KTPV wherein Bivins went on camera at a news station and openly confessed to these crimes:
Bivins has been identified as a onetime freelance journalist who covered political extremism in Portland until 2019.
“Our arson investigator got involved in the case and since then she has been chasing this suspect and connecting him to other incidents,” said Kevin Allen of PPB. “So we know the incidents go back to April 30th at this point and she is still working to see if there are any other cases that might be related.”
On Wednesday, Bivins came by the Fox 12 station asking to speak to a reporter. He said he was the one vandalizing places of worship, gave names and locations of places he had been to and vandalized, and said he would not stop committing these crimes before stating he would come back to the station Friday afternoon.
After he left the station, Fox 12 contacted authorities, sharing the information he had provided. Meanwhile, police say he went back to Beth Israel and threw a large rock through a library window.
“We were notified by Beaverton Police that they had been contacted by KPTV about this guy showing up and claiming that he was involved and apparently wanted to talk to a reporter on that topic,” said Allen. “The Beaverton Police detective recognized that this might be a pretty important clue. They contacted our detective and developed a plan to get him into custody.”
On Friday, Bivins was arrested as he was making his way back to the Fox 12 station.
“This is certainly noteworthy that someone would contact a news station and want to discuss crimes they committed,” said Allen. “I’m not sure what the motivation there was, but we are certainly grateful to you and KPTV for working with our investigators so we could get him arrested, get him into custody and find appropriate charges for him. It’s important to note too that this is early in the investigation. I know the detective is continuing to work on what charges could be appropriate and we could be putting more charges forth going forward.”
Portland Police say they are in contact with federal authorities about this investigation and additional charges are possible.
If you can believe it, Bivins is actually being held on a $266,000 bond.
