Adam Haner The Victim of the Violent Portland Assault Speaks Out, “Not Seeking Vengeance”


It’s amazing that Adam Haner is alive if you don’t know already Adam Haner was a victim of a vicious beatdown by BLM protestors and received a major kick to the skull that knocked him out cold.

He has been quoted saying “I wasn’t the enemy, I’ll tell you that. I was just the guy standing there, and I was white, evidently,”  basically implying he was attacked because he was white.

Adam Haner did nothing to deserve the vicious attack, pray that he makes a speedy recovery.

New York Post reported what Adam Haner had to say after being brutally beaten:

The driver kicked unconscious during a mob attack in Portland says he has previously marched in support of Black Lives Matter — and believes he was only targeted because he is white.

“I wasn’t trying to do anything but get a drink,” Adam Haner told KATU of the vicious attack that started outside a 7-Eleven and left him with head wounds, three broken ribs and two black eyes.

“I wasn’t the enemy, I’ll tell you that. I was just the guy standing there, and I was white, evidently,” he said of his brutal attack by BLM protesters.

While he was not part of the ongoing protests in Portland, Haner told KPTV that he had previously marched in BLM protests.

“I was for that. I’ve had cops beat me up before. I was for their cause,” he said.

The one-time firefighter — who is refusing to watch the viral video of his attack — said his natural instincts kicked in when he saw a trans woman whom he did not know getting robbed and beaten.

“Before I even got my door open, somebody was yanking me out and I hit the ground,” he told KPTV.

“I remember vaguely being on the ground and trying to call her,” he said of his girlfriend.

“Then I don’t remember anything. And then two days later I wake up” covered in tubes in the ICU, he said.

But he insisted he is not “seeking vengeance” against the suspect in his attack, named by police as 25-year-old former security guard Marquise Love.


Fox News reported this about Adam Haner’s attack:

Adam Haner, the man who was seen on video being brutally attacked in downtown Portland, Ore., on Sunday night, said it happened after he and his girlfriend went to a convenience store and tried to intervene when they saw a woman being robbed of her backpack.

The crowd of attackers taunted him, called him a white supremacist, shoved his girlfriend to the ground and punched her, he told FOX 12 of Oregon.

Haner and his girlfriend, Tammie Martin, quickly decided to get in their separate vehicles, which were parked nearby, and leave the area, he said. But soon the power steering failed in his pickup truck, and he stopped at an intersection.

That’s when matters got worse.

“And before I even got my door open,” he said, “someone was yanking me out and I hit the ground. And then I sat there for a while and they wouldn’t let me get up.”

Video seen on social media shows multiple attackers striking Haner – leading up to a brutal kick to his head at the end of the clip.

Haner was knocked unconscious, FOX 12 reported.

His girlfriend, Martin, told the station about finding Haner lying in the street.

“Next thing I knew,” she said, after surviving her own assault, “I found him on the ground unconscious, and when I got there, he was on the ground. I didn’t know if he was breathing and I didn’t know what happened.”

A photo posted online by the station Wednesday shows Haner with two black eyes as he recovers.

“Getting a drink at a 7-Eleven in Portland, Oregon, is a different story than it was two months ago,” he observed, referring to the change in the city since almost nightly rioting began about three months ago.

It’s great to see Adam Haner out of the hospital but it’s upsetting to see liberal news media not even mention his name on any of their networks and the mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler has yet to address the attack.
