John Jackson, who owns the Heroes American Café in Portland, Oregon, has made a decision on who he will vote for in November after being targeted by ANTIFA.
Jackson, who is a military veteran, says that his café was targeted by ANTIFA because the violent activists view it as an “unfriendly” business. Two of his windows were shot out, and another was struck with a baseball bat.
Meet John Jackson. He’s a veteran of the Army AND the Marines. He owns a cafe called Heroes American. Antifa in Portland is targeting him for supporting police. They shot at his cafe and broke his windows. Why doesn’t his Black life matter to Antifa? pic.twitter.com/dmCg9WcMqa

The attack came as a result of a tweet from @DublinPDX, which asked for people to contribute to a list of businesses that are anti-BLM or pro-police. The account which posted the tweet has since been locked, but a screenshot was shared by editor of the Post Millennial Andy Ngo in a tweet about the recent changes to Yelp that help social justice warriors label businesses as racist.
The post stated: “We’re trying to compile a list of all non-friendly businesses in PDX. AKA any company that’s hanging blue lives garbage in their store or anything else that’s anti the BLM movement. Drop them below.”
With @Yelp announcing it is going to put notices on businesses accused of “racist behavior,” one #antifa group responsible for organizing the violent protests in Portland is now compiling a list. pic.twitter.com/EubfxcztuD

Jackson has never been afraid to show his support for law enforcement, and other heroes to him which include military, veterans, nurses, and firefighters. “We’re for all heroes and we don’t support zeroes. So, if you’re a bad cop, we don’t really have time for you. If you’re walking your beat and you’re taking care of your people or you’re saving lives, we love you,” he said.
Speaking about the damage that was done to his business, Jackson said: “I think it’s more psychological. When I first came here [Portland] about 10 years ago, it was one of the most accepting cities that I knew of.”
Unfortunately, Portland has changed over the years. Currently, if you do not accept the leftist orthodoxy, you are hated, targeted with harassment campaigns, and even attacked. Jackson has now seen this first-hand, and he is not backing down.
