Gibson also pointed out that he isn't "alt-right", contrary to Mayor Wheeler's claim: "When someone can explain to me what alt-right means, I'll answer it".
But Wheeler also noted that the free speech rally received a permit to use Portland's Shrunk Plaza, which is owned by the federal government. But the trauma doesn't justify a request by Portland's mayor that the federal government cancel two demonstrations planned for next month by conservative groups. "Given where this city is now, in terms of the mourning we're going through collectively, the anger that is currently focused on what I would describe as the alt-right, this is not the right time for those groups to come into our community and hold a rally".

Another Patriot Prayer event is scheduled this weekend in Portland, on June 4, and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has called on organizers to cancel the event.
"I urge them to ask their supporters to stay away from Portland", Wheeler wrote.
In response to those who point out that the alt=right has the same First Amendment protections as the rest of us, Wheeler actually says, "Hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution".
The rally scheduled for Sunday is still on.
Joey Gibson leads a pro-Trump rally on May 1, 2017 in Seattle.
A week before US President Donald Trump was elected in November 2016, Christian posted a freaky and hateful tirade on Facebook, saying, "If Donald Trump is the Next Hitler then I am joining his SS to put an end to Monotheist Question".

Why Did Trump Get 5M Twitter Bots To Follow Him This Week?
Only Trump and perhaps some collection of his advisors know for certain if this president bought any of his 31 million followers. But if you check Twitter this morning, you will notice that " covfefe " is the top hashtag (at least top unpaid hashtag).

In each of those games, the team lined up defensively, seemingly happy to leave with a 0-0 draw or to nick a goal on the break. Herrera's compatriot Mata said Monday's shocking events in Manchester gave the win in Stockholm extra significance.
Protecting these rallies is one of the reasons taxpayers are asked to fund the police. We did everything we could to kick him out.
SIEGEL: Amelia, what more do we know about Christian and what might have led to the events on the train? In fact, the Supreme Court has often ruled that it is protected free speech.
Train security video and passengers' cell phone video showed Christian "making a sudden move" toward Namkai-Meche, 23, of Portland, who responded by standing, according to the affidavit.
Chrisitan, 35, identifies himself in one of the videos, and he's also seen carrying the baseball bat, which he handed over to officers who approached him.

"If we allow the government to shut down speech for some, we all will pay the price down the line", the ACLU of OR says. "He threatened me and tons of people", Gibson said. "I'm a libertarian. I'm not right wing, I'm for gay marriage, I'm against the drug wars".
"I just want to say thank you to the people who put their life on the line for me", she said.
The ACLU of OR responded to the mayor's statement, saying in a series of tweets the city can not "shut down speech we disagree with". "He's afraid for us to come down there because we have a clear and simple message about freedom, about getting rid of the nanny sates, about how we don't have to have high taxes and regulations".
