BREAKING: Antifa blog posts claim of responsibility for arson attack at Portland mayoral candidate’s family home

Their "only regret is not attacking the other two vehicles" belonging to the residence.


A Portland Antifa group has claimed responsibility for torching a politician's car on Jan. 12.  

In a blog post to its page, the Antifa group said it burned Portland City Commissioner Rene Gonzalez's car as "an act of community self-defense and a form of mutual aid" and that their "only regret is not attacking the other two vehicles" belonging to the residence.  

"This was accomplished with a fire starter, which can be found in the outdoors section of any big box store,” the blog post stated.  

The crime's timing was "intentional," according to the post, because the city is "brac[ing] for the first winter storm of the year" and the activists "have not forgotten the winter storm last year that arrived shortly shortly after gonzalez banned portland street response... from giving out tents to homeless portlanders."

"When extreme weather events occur, it is often anarchists who come to the aid of our neighbors."

"Let this serve as a warning to the politicians and their capitalist cronies and a call to action to other anarchists. Solidarity means attack!" ended the Antifa blog's claim of responsibility. 

Some Antifa associated users on X have supported the action done by the group. 

One user, Piper Smith, who goes by @yourfriendpiper and works for Bowflex, posted to the platform, saying, "MANY people deserve to have their cars scorched. Like an unbelievable number of people." 

Melissa Lewis, another Antifa member and convicted criminal, when she heard the news of the incident wrote on X, "NO WAY I hadn't seen this lol" when another user commented, "TO THE PERSON WHO LIT RENE GONZALEZ'S CAR ON FIRE I LOVE YOU."

Gonzales has had threats made against him for years from the group.  

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
