This is the moment a flash-bang grenade appears to go off amid a Patriot Prayer march in Portland, seconds before a melee between the right-wing group and Antifa.

Four people were arrested amid the violence on Saturday, which broke out when the pro-Trump group’s scheduled march encountered an opposing group associated with a second nearby rally.

Violence is never acceptable.  

I notice that both sides had their faces masked.  That’s a feature of the KKK?
