Gateway Pundit/Progressives Today blogger Michael Strickland

Last night in Portland, Oregon, a man identified as a “conservative blogger” was arrested when he pulled a gun and menaced people at a Don’t Shoot PDX protest.

A man pulled a gun near hundreds of people taking part in a Don’t Shoot PDX protest Thursday evening and was later taken into custody by law enforcement officers in tactical gear.

Michael Strickland, 36, is facing misdemeanor menacing and second-degree disorderly conduct charges, according to jail records. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center late Thursday night, and then released on his own recognizance, jail and court records show.

Strickland will be arraigned Friday afternoon, Portland police said in a news release. Police identified Strickland as the man allegedly menacing people with a gun.

Some more info from his arraignment today: Man accused of pulling gun on Portland protesters was armed with multiple magazines of ammo, prosecutor says.

Michael Strickland, the 36-year-old man accused of pulling a gun on Don’t Shoot PDX protesters marching outside Portland’s Justice Center, had a round in the chamber of the loaded handgun he swept in front of the crowd and five other magazines of ammunition on him Thursday night, according to court records.

Multnomah County deputy district attorney Kate Molina Friday successfully argued for Strickland’s bail to be set at $250,000 after two felony counts of unlawful possession of a firearm were added to misdemeanor allegations of menacing and second-degree disorderly conduct.

Four sheriff’s deputies then placed him in handcuffs and led him to jail directly from arraignment court at the Justice Center.

Of course I was curious to know which conservative blogs this alleged felon writes for, and guess where I found him?

If you guessed Gateway Pundit, home of Jim Hoft, the fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet, you win. He’s written many posts for Hoft.

Here’s the link to the Gateway Pundit index of Strickland’s articles, which often prominently featured guns, oddly enough: Michael Strickland, Author at The Gateway Pundit.

And here’s his index at Progressives Today, another far right propaganda site started by the SMOTI: Michael Strickland, Author at Progressives Today.

These are the people mainlining hatred to the right wing base 24/7 — unhinged, armed, paranoid loons.

And we should note that a white guy brandishing a loaded gun was taken into custody without being harmed.
