Joey Gibson says Portland treats him like 'violent racist Nazií and asks judge to move lawsuit, trial to another county

Joey Gibson, founder of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, is asking a Multnomah County judge to move a $1 million lawsuit against him outside the Portland area because he believes he canít get a fair trial in a place he says is biased against him.

ď(T)he political environment within Multnomah County and the City of Portland is so hostile and prejudicial that anyone who dares treat me as anything other than a violent racist Nazi will suffer adverse consequences,Ē Gibson wrote in court filings this week.

Gibson, who is from the Vancouver area, argues in a signed declaration that potential jurors drawn from in and around Portland are tainted, given prejudicial statements he says have been made against him by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, City Commissioners Jo Ann Hardesty and Chloe Eudaly and U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon. Gibson also says media coverage has falsely labeled him as a white supremacist and far-right extremist.

Gibsonís declarations are part of his response to a Circuit Court lawsuit filed against him, Patriot Prayer and several other men associated with his group. The owner of Cider Riot, a Northeast Portland pub, claims they interfered with his business by showing up May 1 and inciting violence and fights.
