(PresidentialWire.com)- A Trump-voting grandmother outed her violent extremist grandson last week after he allegedly threw an explosive device at the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland. The 69-year-old grandmother told authorities that it was her grandson who was responsible for the attack amidst ongoing far-left riots in Oregon.
Speaking to the New York Post, Karla Fox said that she recognized her 18-year-old grandson Agard-Berryhill in a photograph released by the police. Fox said that the vest her grandson was wearing was something she bought for him, and so she immediately knew it was him behind the mask.
The New York Post reported that on Tuesday, in the hours following the explosive attack, social-media users published a video that showed a skinny young male in the vicinity. He was wearing an olive vest that had the word “ICONS” emblazoned on it. The footage showed the young man throwing an object over the fence of the courthouse, seconds before a huge explosion was seen in the building. The front door of the courthouse was engulfed in flames and the young man picks something up off the ground and then runs away.
Fox told the newspaper that she bought him the vest after he saw it online and had been hit with rubber bullets the night prior during the protects. She bought her grandson the vest in the hope that it would protect him from the rubber bullets in the future.
The young man, Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, spoke to the New York Post via text message.
“This device I’ve been accused of allegedly throwing was allegedly given to me by an unknown protestor with full face coverings,” he told the paper. “I was allegedly told that it was a strobe firework that wouldn’t damage the building or harm anyone around it.”
If he is the perpetrator here, why is he talking about allegations and why isn’t he just telling the newspaper what really happened?
Agard-Berryhill also reportedly told his probation officer on the same night that he wanted to turn himself in. He was on probation after another felony conviction from when he was a child.
Has anyone else noticed this trend of Antifa activist pretending to be hard men when they’re really just children who rely on their parents and grandparents to get by?
