It has gotten to the point where events like this aren’t even newsworthy anymore. If Portland wasn’t descending into a crumbling anarchist dystopia, it would be more interesting to talk about.
“At least 100 self-proclaimed anarchists tore through Portland, setting dumpsters aflame, smashing windows and causing $500,000 in damage, but police stood idle because of a new state law that restricts how law enforcement can respond to riots.
The city just reached the ‘grim’ milestone of 1,000 shootings through 2021 in what has been a year of destructive protests, violent street clashes and a police staffing crisis.
Now police say a recently passed law ties their hands even further as it prohibits police from using crowd control techniques like pepper spray or tear gas. Instead, law enforcement agencies are told to rely on follow-up investigations to hold rioters accountable.
Portland’s latest round of violence broke out after a memorial for Sean Kealiher, an Antifa activist who was struck and killed by an SUV in October 2019 after getting in a fight with the driver at a bar earlier that night.
Police have not made any arrests in connection to Kealiher’s death, though his mother Laura believes they have identified the culprits, according to the Oregonian/Oregon Live. She organized last Tuesday’s protest on Twitter, writing that it was ‘not a peaceful event’ and dubbing it ‘a night of rage and anger.’ …”
Do you want to be governed by these people?
Do you want to share the same country with these people?
My answer is “no” on both counts. We are far too different in our vision and values.
Note: Please note how the “intelligence community” looks the other way at this. It is routine now. Clearly, we have arrived at the stage in Oregon where one group of citizens has been given permission by the state to violently impose their will on another class of citizens and destroy their property.
