Authorities arrested the leader of a right-wing group on the eve of a rally that’s expected to draw people from around the U.S. to Portland, Oregon, on Saturday, prompting Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson (top and inset) to urge his followers to ‘show up one hundred-fold’ in response. Self-described anti-fascists have vowed to confront the right-wing groups at the downtown rally and the arrests of Gibson and five other right-wing supporters appeared to be intended to send a signal from police to organizers to remain peaceful or stay away. More than two dozen local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the Federal Protective Service, were in Portland Saturday to help police there monitor the rally that’s expected to draw demonstrators from around the U.S. Gibson, who is not involved in this weekend’s event but organized similar rallies in 2017 and 2018 that erupted in clashes, surrendered Friday on an arrest warrant for rioting. He was at a confrontation that broke out on May 1 outside a bar where members of the so-called ‘antifa’ movement had gathered after a May Day demonstration.
