Portland Murder Suspect 100 Percent Antifa, Victim 100 Percent Patriot

The Portland murder victim (Trump supporter) has been identifed by Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson as Aaron “Jay” Danielson, aka Jay Bishop. Oregon Live reported the suspect as Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48. Danielson is hailed as a patriot who loved his country and backed the police. Reinoehl stated that he is “100 percent Antifa all the way.”

The Gateway Pundit reported one of Danielson’s friends, Chandler Pappas, was with Danielson on the night of the murder. Pappas went on Andrew Duncomb’s podcast talk about what happened right in front of him on Saturday. (Duncomb himself was stabbed by an Antifa terrorist last month in Portland while covering the Black Lives Matter riots.) Pappas stated in the podcast:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“They executed my partner. They hunted him down, they hunted us down. They recognized our Patriot Prayer hats. For anybody who doesn’t know Joey Gibson, citizens advocating for men, we support him, Christian and conservative. Um, so they identified our hats: “We got a couple of ’em right here. We got a couple of ’em right here. Pull it out. Pull it out”…I turned around. I didn’t even, it didn’t even register that somebody was pointing a gun at us until the shots went off and took off running…the shooter took off running and uh, you know, you, it takes a second to process everything that happened. You know, did he just shoot at me? Okay? I’m okay, turn over and Jay’s dead.

“Because he believed something different. Jay’s not a racist. He’s not a xenophobe or whatever label. He’s not an ist or an ism. He’s an independent man. He’s a good man. And he didn’t do anything to earn a bullet in the chest.”

The 100 Percent Antifa

The suspect was identified by the socialist fist tattoo on his neck. Reinoehl reportedly was arrested for having a firearm back in July at a previous riot. He also has a warrant for his arrest stemming from a June incident involving speed racing. He has been stopped before by police. They are currently investigating him, but there is no word of any arrest at this point. The PPB would not comment on the investigation.

Oregon Live reported,

On July 5 at one of the demonstrations, Reinoehl was cited at 2:10 a.m. in the 700 block of Southwest Main Street on allegations of possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest and interfering with police.

He was given a date to appear in court later that month, but the allegations were dropped on July 30 with a “no complaint,” according to court records. The documents don’t indicate why prosecutors decided not to pursue the accusations. Reinoehl spent no time behind bars.

Brent Weisberg, a spokesman for Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, said the office is still reviewing that July case involving Reinoehl.

So even the previous prosecutor in Portland/Multnomah County let him go. “100 percent Antifa” Reinoehl began posting about the Portland riots:

“Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. There are so many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s that where the fight starts. If that’s as far as you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight. I am 100 percent ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! … We do not want violence but we will not run from it either! … Today’s protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms.” Reineohl- “100 percent Antifa”

After the family received a threat after the incident, his sister reported the threat to police. When she saw screenshots of the suspect,  she told police that they recognized her brother in the screenshots of the murder.

Going Forward

Joey Gibson shared the official GoFundMe link for the family after several fraudulent acounts were set up.

“Aaron “Jay” Danielson “was a Portland citizen who went downtown to express his opinions during the unrest and was shot and killed on the evening of Saturday August 29th. There are multiple fraudulent go fund me accounts that are set up. This is the OFFICIAL page where the family will be supported. Please do not donate to other pages claiming it is for the family. Thank you for your support.” GoFundMe
