Stabbing Victim Says Portland Has a ‘WHITE SAVIOR COMPLEX’
There was one survivor of the brutal attack on three men who aided two Muslim women.
The survivor spoke out, and people gushed. The hero of sorts said that Portland suffers from “white savior complex”.
According to Time,
An emotional Micah Fletcher said in a six-minute video on his Facebook page that Portland has a “white savior complex” and residents are heaping praise on him, but the real victims are the women. He says they must be traumatized from being targets of hate and from the deaths of two other men who also tried to intervene Friday.
“These people need to be reminded that this is about them, that they are the real victims here,” he said.
Don’t feel bad if you missed how wrong Fletcher is.
He’s been trained to say that he is no “white savior”. In fact, he doesn’t believe he is a savior at all.
I have no idea of the ethnicity of the two men who were killed doing exactly what Fletcher did. They didn’t fare so well, as their deaths suggest. However, you can bet that if they were alive, regardless of ethnicity they wouldn’t claim “[ethnic] savior complex”. The men did what any good American Samaritan man would have done.
Back to the man part in a bit.

Jeremy Joseph Christian is accused of stabbing to death Ricky Best, 53, and Taliesin Namkai-Meche, 23. Prosecutors say he attacked them after they confronted him for harassing two young black women, one of whom wore a Muslim head covering.
Fletcher, a 21-year-old student at Portland State University and a poet, also stood up to Christian. His wound was within millimeters of being fatal, court documents say. He has been released from the hospital and attended Christian’s first court hearing, where a scar on his neck was visible.
Lost in Fletcher’s plea is the fact that three American men involved themselves selflessly into a grave situation.
How many Muslims do you think intervene when ISIS decides to behead so-called Infidels?
Fletcher offers that what he did was no big deal, and that the Muslim women didn’t deserve to be harassed. Fletcher’s comments explain Americanism.
The American Spirit knows no race, religion, or creed. Three men saw a wrong and attempted to right that wrong. Two gave their lives to defend total strangers.
These men were not Muslims, thus they saw no religion. Nor are these men women. Yet, despite the gender-gap and the incessant attack on men by feminists, these men responded. No women did.
They could have ignored the insults hurled at these Muslim women. That’s certainly what the Obama administration says Americans do to Muslims. Feminists say that American men are misogynists, and yet here they were.
In spite of Muslim attacks on America soil and abroad at alarming rates, three American men selflessly engaged a crazy man in order to help two fellow women in need.

Christian, 35, did not enter a plea Tuesday. His court-appointed attorney, Gregory Scholls, has not returned a call.
Fletcher’s post included a link to a fundraising page for the girls.
“Suffice it to say, that I think it’s immensely, immensely and morally wrong how much money we have gotten as opposed to the money, love, kindness that has been given to that little girl,” he said, speaking of the money raised for him and the slain victims’ families.
Court documents describe a chaotic scene on the train from the moment Christian boarded.
He was drinking sangria from a large, bladder-style bag and began shouting anti-Muslim slurs once he spotted the two young women, according to a probable cause affidavit signed by Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Ryan Lufkin.
One passenger tried to intervene and was not hurt. The women moved away from Christian.
Surveillance video then shows Christian turn his attention to Namkai-Meche, who was seated. It wasn’t clear if he said something to draw Christian’s attention, but he stood up as Christian began shouting at him.
Fletcher then stood up and pushed Christian hard enough to make him stumble, the affidavit said.
Christian pulled a folded knife from his pocket and concealed it in his hand, prosecutors say. As a shoving match ensued, Christian first stabbed Fletcher, then Namkai-Meche, the documents say. Best then tried to come to their aid and was stabbed.
As for Portland’s “white savior complex,” Fletcher needs to grow up.
He’s no savior. He’s just an ordinary guy who did the best he could under the circumstances.
His actions weren’t about color, but about character.
