PORTLAND, Oregon - Police in Portland are getting ready to control clashes between out-of-state far-right groups who are planning a rally in Portland, and the locals who are against their far right views and anti-fascists ideas. The America's culture wars continue. Saturday's rally — and the violence it may bring — are a relatively new reality here, as an informal coalition of white nationalists, white supremacists and extreme-right militias hones its focus on Oregon's largest city as a stand-in for everything it feels is wrong with the U.S. At the top of that list are the masked and black-clad anti-fascists who turn out to violently oppose right-wing demonstrators as soon as they set foot in town. "It's Portlandia, and in the public mind it represents everything these (far-right) groups are against," said Heidi Beirich, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. "It's progressive, and even more offensive to them, it's progressive white people who should be on these guys' side." The groups know they will get a headline-grabbing reaction from Portland's so-called "antifa," whose members have issued an online call to th ...
