The suspect who is currently being investigated by law enforcement for involvement in the shooting death of a Trump supporter in the downtown Portland, Oregon area on Saturday, took to social media in recent days where he said he is “100% ANTIFA” and is “willing to fight” in the “war.”
And the mainstream media accuses conservatives of being nutjobs? This guy is on the left and totally takes the taco as far as that is concerned.
Police sources confirmed to the Oregonian that 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl is now the prime suspect in the fatal shooting of Aaron Danielson, a supporter of the conservative “Patriot Prayer” group who was part of caravan of Trump supporters who flooded downtown Portland Saturday in protest of the ongoing riots in the city.
As shown by videos and images on his Instagram feed, Reinoehl has been a regular participant in protests and riots in the city since the death of George Floyd in late May.
On his Instagram, Reinoehl also routinely shared troubling messages in support of the Black Lives Matter protests, including a June message in which he described himself as a member of Antifa fighting in a “war” where “there will be casualties.”
“Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight,” he wrote in his post. “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 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% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters!” (emphasis mine)
“It will be a war and like all wars there will be casualties,” Reinoehl went on.

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 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% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! Even if some of them are too ignorant to realize what antifa truly stands for. We do not want violence but we will not run from it either! If the police continue to pick on and beat up innocent citizens that are peacefully voicing their objections, it must be met with equal force! We are currently living through a crucial point in Humanities evolution. We truly have an opportunity right now to fix everything. But it will be a fight like no other! It will be a war and like all wars there will be casualties. I was in the army and I hated it. I did not feel like fighting for them would ever be a good cause. Today's protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms. This is a Cause to fight for This truly is fighting for my country! I have children that need to live in a world run by Common Sense and human decency. And I will do anything to make sure that happens. Now is the time to change the course of humanity. If we fold now just because they show some Force we will be lost for another hundred years. And I don't think the planet will let us live that long if we don't straighten shit up. Please be safe strong and United. I love you all❤️💪🙏 #Antifa #blaklivesmatter #fuckthepolice
Reinoehl had also previously been cited for allegedly carrying a loaded weapon and for interfering with cops during protests held in July. He was never prosecuted for either offense.
Before the protests, police stopped Reinoehl while he was driving with his 11-year-old daughter in the car, where they found marijuana and unidentified prescription medication.
This is not a good dude. At all. It’s quite clear he’s got a lot of issues. Here’s to hoping they lock this guy up before he hurts anyone else.
