Portland Train Killing Suspect Rants Like Manson ... Your Terrorism Is My Patriotism!

Last weekend, two men were stabbed to death and one seriously injured on a light-rail train in Portland, Oregon, after they tried to intervene when another passenger began "ranting and raving" and shouting anti-Muslim hate speech at two young women.

Police are investigating Christian's alleged extremist ideology, NBC Portland affiliate KGW reported. You got no safe place. Christian shouted as he appeared in the Portland courtroom: "You call it terrorism; I call it patriotism".

He continued calling for death to the "enemies of America", including anti-fascists.

In a letter dated Monday and made public Tuesday, the mother of 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche asked Trump to "condemn any acts of violence, which result directly from hate speech & hate groups".

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, was in Multnomah County courtroom Tuesday afternoon for his first court appearance on two counts of felony aggravated murder and other charges for the Friday attack. Free speech or die, Portland, he said.

Christian reportedly was convicted in 2002 on state charges of robbery, kidnapping and unlawful use of a unsafe weapon, and then in 2011 on federal charges of felon in possession of a firearm.

Clark told The Oregonian Christian had many black friends. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance.

He did not enter a plea.

"They are heroes, yet their families are not only going to be faced with the pain of losing people they love, but with financial hardships from their passings", a description on the GoFundMe page says.

Christian, who is a self-proclaimed white nationalist, has a long history of confrontations with police. "As much as I can, in whatever way I can", Fletcher told the station.

Embargoed to Portland, OR Destinee Mangum, 16, thanked the three strangers who intervened on a Portland light rail after a man hurled anti-Muslim slurs at her and her friend who was wearing a hijab. The next day, when she heard about the train stabbings, she immediately thought of the video she had taken of Christian.

But additionally, Portland over the last several months has been the scene of a lot of increasingly tense confrontations between protesters protesting Donald Trump's presidential administration, Portland police and counter-protesters, sort of alt-right groups. The girls then moved to the back of the train.

He was being held Saturday at the Multnomah County jail without opportunity for bail. He yelled statements including, "Go home, we need American here", "I don't care if you are ISIS", and "Free speech or die".

Instead, Rachel Macy stayed and comforted Taliesin Namkai-Meche after he was stabbed.

"Apparently the knife, when the gentleman stabbed me, the hilt, it hit my jawbone and broke it, and I thought it was centimeters but apparently it was millimeters away from my carotid artery", he said.

Macy said she saw that Namkai-Meche was holding up his phone but Macy said she did not know if he was recording the confrontation.
