FOX News reports that doctors needed four staples to close a 3-inch gash on the back of Paul Welchâ€™s head and he spent at least two days recovering from a concussion. Welch, an Oregon man who voted for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, carried an American flag to protest in opposition to the pro-Trump rally, but he was targeted by Antifa for his excessive patriotism.
Man down. Heâ€™s dripping blood from his head. This is serious. He got in a struggle with some black clad dudes over a flag and one of them clubbed him. Video coming. #DefendPDX #Alloutpdx pic.twitter.com/2rWnAkAC2J— PDX Mike Bivins (@itsmikebivins) August 4, 2018
This morning I officially notified the City of Portland via email that I wonâ€™t be signing a sworn statement regarding tweets I sent while reporting during and after the June 4, 2017 Patriot Prayer rally. https://t.co/JQZpvAKdAY— PDX Mike Bivins (@itsmikebivins) July 26, 2018
