It was billed as a massive rally by the violent, far-right group called the Proud Boys — whom the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated a hate group — but by the time it ended, only a couple hundred people had gathered in North Portland's Delta Park on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Many were dressed in camouflage and militarized body armor and listened to classic rock. When they came by car, they passed Portland Bureau of Transportation traffic signs lit up with messages like, "Black Lives Matter" and "Hate has no place here."
