Antifa members are in mourning after Michael Reinoehl, the 48-year-old suspected of killing a supporter of President Trump in Portland, was killed by authorities.
A federal task force attempted to apprehend Reinoehl Thursday, the prime suspect in the weekend killing of 39-year-old Patriot Prayer member, Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson.
An Associated Press report indicates the Antifa sympathizer “had pulled a gun” in an encounter with a law enforcement officer on the task force, resulting in return fire.
Reinoehl had described himself in a social media post as “100% ANTIFA” and was reportedly a regular presence at violent riots in Portland, Oregon.
In an interview with VICE hours earlier, the shooter complained that feds were “hunting me,” but showed little remorse for Danielson’s death stating, “I was confident that I did not hit anyone innocent.”

Antifa members were distraught over Reinoehl’s death, despite the fact that he drew a weapon on law enforcement officers and likely killed an innocent man in Portland.
Officials had to clear the streets near the Kelly Penumbra building where his fellow radicals and supporters were reportedly mourning the loss.

Journalist Andy Ngo posted images of messages left behind in the streets by Antifa members, one which accused the police of having “murdered Michael Reinoehl” and another referring to the alleged murderer as the “best ally ever.”
What’s disturbing to me is the message that calls Reinoehl the “best ally ever.” Not only do antifa not rebuke his murderous actions, they praise it over & over.
Antifa also put up a poster nearby featuring quotes from convicted murderer & fugitive Assata Shakur. pic.twitter.com/4EdZ8fsYA5

Biden, Media Defended Reinoehl
The fact that VICE interviewed the suspect without alerting authorities was just another in a long string of defenses used by the media in protecting the murderer.
They also provided him a motive by pursuing ridiculous claims that Trump supporters were “shooting paintballs” the same night he killed Danielson.
Kayleigh McEnany to reporter: “For 90 days I’ve stood at this podium talking about officers who have had lasers flashed in their eyes… the people that were harassed & yelled at — Sen. @RandPaul, @DBongino right out here — & you’re going to ask me about a paintball video?” pic.twitter.com/CZwFqKge20

Democrat nominee Joe Biden claimed the pro-Trump caravans in Portland were “spoiling for a fight.”
“It is not a peaceful protest when you out go out spoiling for a fight,” the presidential candidate said in a statement.
Paragraph 2: Biden goes off course. Ups the blame on Trump. Paragraph 3: Dreadful. Biden appears to blame ‘whipped up’ Trump supporters in Portland, ‘spoiling for a fight’ and ‘seeking conflict.’ They should have known those BLM supporters were violent and stayed away! 2/3 pic.twitter.com/pg4jrDMyXe

Will Biden praise law enforcement for taking down a domestic terrorist who was clearly ‘spoiling for a fight’?
