Portland Murder Suspect Believes Stabbings Were 'An Act Of Patriotism'

Portland Murder Suspect Believes Stabbings Were 'An Act Of Patriotism'”

Jeremy Christian, who is suspected of murdering two men in Portland, appeared in court on Tuesday and did not retreat from the statements he originally made aboard a train last Friday. "We need American here", "I don't care if you are ISIS", and "Free speech or die".

"Free speech or die Portland". Christain shouted as he entered the courtroom. "When I did pull my headphone off my ear, what I heard the attacker say was "I pay taxes this is my train" and he was making reference to colored people ruining the city and he had first amendment rights", Macy said.

An unidentified man looks back at people yelling at him as he is escorted out of the building after a large group of people outside the courtroom where Jeremy Christian was being arraigned pursued and threatened him in Portland, Ore, Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

The incident took place on a Metropolitan Area Express (MAX) light-rail train Friday afternoon, and witnesses said Christian yelled racial and religious slurs at two girls, one of them wearing a hijab.

The two victims of the attack were Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, a recent college graduate, and Ricky John Best, 53, a father of four and an Army veteran.

He told jailers that he has no income, no mental health issues and does not remember the last time he had a permanent address. Christian made his first appearance in court this week, shouting, "Free speech or die, Portland".

Videos of Christian spewing hate speech towards Christians and Muslims have surfaced online in addition to his social media page that showed his allegiance to white nationalism and President Donald Trump.

Christian attacked the men after they tried to protect two young black girls at whom Christian was yelling racist and anti-Muslim remarks. "I got stabbed in the neck on my way to work, randomly, by a stranger I don't know, for trying to just be a nice person", he said.

"Your words and actions are meaningful, here in America and throughout the world", Deliverance wrote to Trump on Memorial Day. He was only recently released from the hospital. What charges is the state planning to file against the suspect, Jeremy Christian, today?

"I want the Muslim community to know that they have a home here in Portland and are loved", the statement read.

Trump's remarks came after the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the president to condemn the rampage and speak out against what the advocacy group sees as an increase in anti-Islamic sentiment.

One passenger tried to intervene and was not hurt. One protester asked: "Why are you protecting Nazis?"
