(Right Country) – Portland’s city leadership appears to have completely surrendered the city to violent rioters that the media continues to insist are “peaceful protesters.”
They’ve tried to burn down government buildings and even threatened to burn down private residences simply for displaying the American flag.
They are radical Antifa leftists who have been quite clear that their goal is to dismantle our justice system and law enforcement apparatus.
“Peaceful protester” is not only wrong, it’s laughable considering what the actual definition of what these people are is terrorists.
Over a dozen people have been arrested after these terrorists set fire to a police union building on Thursday amid months-long violence.
The Daily Caller reports:
A large mob of demonstrators used vehicles to block street traffic and vandalized local property with insignia supporting their group’s message, according to a blog post from the Portland Police Bureau (PPB).
Law enforcement ordered the crowd to disperse, but rioters set plywood used to board up the front door of the Portland Police Association ablaze, and some in the crowd were seen attempting to break into the building, the department wrote.
To the group that has gathered outside of the Portland Police Association office on North Lombard Street at North Campbell Avenue: This gathering has been declared an unlawful assembly.

Officers then began to try to quell the crowd, but some in the mob reportedly climbed atop the union headquarters, PPB wrote in the post. A total of 14 people were apprehended by law enforcement for offenses including disorderly conduct, interfering with a peace officer, arson, trespassing and resisting arrest, according to police.
Portland cops did not use non-lethal munitions and the riot concluded at around 1 a.m. Friday, the blog post read.
How much longer is the left going to go on pretending like anything these rioters are doing is protected by the First Amendment?
Are the Democrats so Trump-deranged that they truly can’t bring themselves to condemn this behavior out of sheer hatred for them…or something more sinister?
Whatever the case, they need to be held accountable for their complete failure to lead.
