Here are some mugshot style portrait photographs of masked black bloc domestic terrorists who were counter-protesting at the Liberty or Death political rally held in Seattle, WA on August 18, 2018 by the Washington State Three Percent.
In the Seattle area, the Black Bloc domestic terror group first appeared during the 1999 World Trade Organizations protests in downtown Seattle. More recently, the Black Bloc began to appear when they smashed downtown Seattle storefronts and sprayed graffiti on government building in downtown Seattle during its May 1, 2012 protest and rioting. Since 2012, the Antifa Black Bloc domestic group has appear at political events more and more frequently. The Seattle cells of Antifa Black Bloc have become infamous for committing assault, and before arrested for assault by the Seattle Police Department at political events they counter protest.
At the August 18, 2018 political event in downtown Seattle, three Antifa Black Bloc terrorists were arrested for assault by the Seattle Police, unmasked, and booked into the nearby King County Jail. On Antifa Black Bloc domestic terrorist arrested for assault by the Seattle Police on August 18, 2018 was a local Black Bloc terrorist named Samuel Wheeler-Martenis AKA Sam Wheeler. Once the Seattle Police handcuffed and unmasked Sam Wheeler, police discovered that Wheeler was carrying a loaded, concealed, small frame, Glock brand handgun.
In this photograph taken near the very end of the Washington Three Percent's "Liberty or Death" gun rights politics rally, held on Saturday August 18, 2018 in downtown Seattle, Washington, at the Seattle City Hall courtyard, are two very happy looking Three Percent members. The gesture they were making with their hands is simply to display - three fingers - to indicate their membership in and association with the Washington Three Percent.
On August 18, 2018 in Seattle, Washington, numerous politically oriented groups gathered along the west side of 4th Avenue in Seattle to protest a rally being held across the street by a political organization called the Washington Three Percent. One of the counter-protest groups, called the Freedom Socialist Party, displayed the large banner depicted in this photograph.
In this gallery of Studio 2.8 photography exclusive photographs produced on August 18, 2018 in downtown Seattle, WA at a political gun rights rally called "Liberty or Death", that was organized by a political group called the Washington Three Percent, the female communist extremist in the Studio 2.8 photos above held aloft a large hand lettered sign with the phrase "if you do not oppose fascism you're a fascist" on it. The sign is significant because the rhetoric and propaganda employed by the various active U.S. communist groups that utilize this rhetoric, is that anyone who isn't a communist must be a "Nazi" and a "fascist", despite the irrationality of the ploy. American neo-communist rhetoric and propaganda is dominated by the political truism that surely everyone opposes "fascists" and "Nazis", which the communist groups use as part of their recruiting tactics and their public rhetorical stance and political debate tactics.
At a subsequent political event, an event in June 2019, the Studio 2.8 photography team proudly photographed, as the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride March and Rally held on Friday June 28, 2019 in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, the same communist extremist woman pictured above had been engaged by the group that runs Seattle Trans Pride, the Gender Justice League, was one of the Seattle Trans Pride 2019 staff members. After a Studio 2.8 photography team photographer had spent five hours diligently producing photographs of the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride rally, the female communist extremist pictured above, was part of an unlawful vigilante hate mob that attacked the LGBTQ woman of color who was covering the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride rally. During this female communist extremist's unlawful assault and battery of a Studio 2.8 photographer at the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride event, the female communist extremist in the photographs above, falsely accused the LGBTQ Studio 2.8 photographer woman of color photographer who produced these photos and video of being a "racist", a "Nazi", a "White Supremacist", and worse. In the high resolution Studio 2.8 video excerpt below, the female communist extremist pictured above can be seen, and can be heard shouting "... you are with patriot prayer and you know it ..." (see link), as the communist extremist pictured above participated in the unlawful vigilante hate mob that harassed, assaulted, and battered, the LGBTQ Studio 2.8 photojournalist who produced these photographs and this video.
The high resolution Studio 2.8 video excerpt above was produced by the Studio 2.8 photography team on Friday June 28, 2019 at the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride march and rally, held at Seattle's Cal Anderson Park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.
During a political rally held on August 18, 2018 in downtown Seattle, Washington at the Seattle City Hall courtyard, across the street were counter protesters associated with various political groups, including the Marxist Communist "Freedom Socialist Party", and members of the infamous Antifa "Black Bloc". Antifa, and its "Black Bloc" sub-group, are infamous for wearing black masks and disguises at political protests and counter protests. One apparent member of the anarcho-communist Antifa Black Bloc, named Sam Wheeler AKA Samuel Wheeler-Martenis, was present counter protesting at the rally on August 18, 2018. Wheeler was arrested for assaulting and battering a Studio 2.8 photojournalist, but not before the photograph above of Wheeler-Martenis was captured for posterity.
While Sam Wheeler-Martenis, and his similarly masked Black Bloc cohorts, menaced down the sidewalk, and then assaulted a Studio 2.8 photographer on the Seattle 4th Avenue sidewalk, members of the Seattle Police Department observed the entire incident from their perspective within the street. After Wheeler AKA Wheeler-Martenis twice committed assault and battery; on their own accord; several Seattle Police Department officers arrested and handcuffed Wheeler-Martenis. The Seattle Police later jailed Wheeler-Martenis on a criminal assault charge. After members of the Seattle Police Department arrested Wheeler-Martenis, the police officers removed the mask that Wheeler is pictured wearing in the Studio 2.8 photograph above. Arresting members of the Seattle Police Department then also discovered and confiscated a concealed, loaded, small frame, Glock handgun from inside Wheeler's clothing (see video evidence below). After the Seattle Police arrested Sam Wheeler AKA Samuel Wheeler-Martenis, the police transported Wheeler-Martenis to the King County Jail in Seattle where Wheeler was booked for assault and held on $1,000.00 bail. Whether or not Sam Wheeler possesses a WA concealed pistol license, and whether or not Wheeler-Martenis was legally able to possess and carry a concealed handgun on August 18, 2018, has not been revealed by the Seattle Police. The Seattle Police Department has also not disclosed whether or not Sam Wheeler is a person prohibited from owning firearms under federal and/or state firearm statutes.
The video below, created, published, and presented, on youtube by CSC Media, shows Sam Wheeler-Martenis in the act of twice committing assault and battery of a Studio 2.8 photojournalist, in concert with other members of the infamous anarcho-communist Antifa Black Bloc domestic terror group. The video embedded below also shows the Seattle Police arresting and unmasking Sam Wheeler, as well as, removing the Glock handgun Wheeler had concealed under his clothing.
Surely reasonable people must wonder, what leads someone like Sam Wheeler-Martenis to become part of a masked and disguised Marxist/Communist/Socialist/Anarchist domestic terror group such as the Antifa Black Bloc. What do members of the Antifa Black Bloc terror group do by day, when they are not committing criminal mayhem at political protests? In the case of Sam Wheeler AKA Samuel Wheeler-Martenis the answers to such questions aren't entirely clear.
Wheeler-Martenis apparently grew up in the American state of Vermont. Wheeler-Martenis (aka Wheeler) is the son of a late Vermont physician named Thomas Martenis, MD. Sam Wheeler-Martenis later attended various east coast U.S. colleges. Then Wheeler-Martenis embarked on a not too successful career as a professional bicycle racer. It also isn't entirely clear why Wheeler-Martenis began using the last name Wheeler, having discarded his father's family name of Martenis. Upon moving to Seattle, according to public records, Wheeler-Martenis has worked as a bicycle fitter on weekdays for various Seattle area bicycle shops, when not engaged in anarcho-communist black-bloc political protest activities on weekends. It seems ironic that an avowed Black-Bloc "Anarchist" and "anti-capitalist" Marxist, would also possess a Washington State sole proprietorship business license, while at the same time protesting on the weekend against "capitalism" and so on. Whether informative or not, these are the daily life personal attributes and characteristics of this particular member of the infamous domestic terror group known as the Antifa "Black Bloc".
Jewish attendees of the August 18, 2018 Liberty or Death Rally in Seattle flew a very large Israeli flag while counter protesters across the street ignorantly called them "Nazis", "KKK", and "Fascists".
In this Studio 2.8 photography photo from August 18, 2018, produced at the "Liberty or Death" gun rights rally held in downtown Seattle at the Seattle City Hall by the Washington Three Percent, Seattle Police Department officers formed a dense sentry line cordon in Fourth Avenue facing violent communist extremist counter protesters on the 4th Avenue sidewalk.
