(Portland, OR)  --  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says he's urging the federal government to immediately revoke the permit for an "alt-right" Trump Free Speech Rally at Terry Shrunk Plaza on June 4th, and to not issue a permit for another event on June 10th.  Wheeler says he's concerned that participants were coming to Portland to "peddle a message of hatred and bigotry."  In response to the mayor, the ACLU of Oregon says the "government cannot revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of demonstrators."  Event organizer Joey Gibson says his rally won't involve any kind of hate speech, and has nothing to do with Jeremy Christian, the man accused of being responsible for Friday's stabbing on a Portland MAX train.
