Conservatives on Twitter pounced on a dubious tweet from the Portland, Oregon, police to claim that members of the anti-fascist group known as "antifa" threw "milkshakes" laced with quick-dry cement during a clash with the far-right group Proud Boys over the weekend. There is no evidence to back up the claim, according to local media.

Antifa and the Proud Boys, a group often described as white nationalist and labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (although they deny both labels), clashed once again over the weekend.
