Portland Riots: Democrats Operate in Lockstep with Antifa
The mayor of Portland, either by accident or on purpose, has basically announced his control over the far left Antifa group by putting out a tweet asking for a ceasefire. He declared his ability to negotiate with the far left that is besieging the courthouse.
“Commissioner @JoAnnPDX and I are calling for an immediate meeting with Department of Homeland Security leadership on the ground in Portland and with Acting Secretary @DHS_Wolf to discuss a cease-fire and the removal of heightened federal forces from Portland.” tweeted Mayor Ted Wheeler
It’s not just this tweet from the mayor which exposes that the state is totally in alignment with those attacking the federal government. Two days ago, wall of moms black lives matter sued trump admin over Portland response. But this is because the State failed to do the same !
Initially Oregon’s attorney general filed a lawsuit , but the judge dismissed the case saying that the state has no standing to sue on behalf of the protesters. Within days, the protesters are suing. You can see how they are in total alignment.
For over two months far leftists have marched to the courthouse, attacked it, and in numerous occasions actually breached the courthouse and got inside. They have injured several police officers. The federal officers have defended the property and gone out on counter-offensives to arrest these violent riders and try and break up these groups .The activists use this as a kind of propagandistic physical warfare where they can attack you but the media won't show what's really going on. They'll give you the easily packaged click bait narrative that makes money. – Tim pool Click To Tweet
At the very least what we’re learning now is that the state and the protesters are operating in lockstep with each other.
Soon after U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman rejects the motion, arguing that attorney general did not present enough evidence that future harm would continue at the hands of the agents and raised doubts about whether the state had legal standing to pursue a suit on behalf of protesters, The protesters sue Trump
“We just sued your administration on behalf of @DontShootPdx & @WallOfMoms to make sure the rights of protesters are protected,” the group tweeted in response to Trump’s earlier missive. “It’s time for you to stop attacking patriots.”
Ongoing clashes between protestors and law enforcement in front of a federal courthouse prompted the city’s police to declare a riot early Sunday.
Protests in Portland are fueled by hatred to President Trump
An agent on field broke code of silence to describe the situation.Hatred of President Trump is fueling protests in Portland, Oregon, prompting activists to threaten the lives of federal police in hopes of driving them away and handing the White House a major embarrassment – DHS Agent in Portland Click To Tweet
“As the night goes on, the rioters become so hateful it is surreal. Their voices hoarse, their sentences jumbled, they seem almost catatonic with hate,” said the agent of the Portland clashes that have nearly reached 60-straight nights.
"When DHS personnel are visible, they throw frozen water bottles at them, canned goods, paint, and gasoline. They try to shine high powered lasers into our eyes, which can cause permanent damage" – DHS agent Click To Tweet
“They throw homemade Molotov cocktails, try to set the walls on fire, try to cut and pry through the plywood covering the glass walls, all the while screaming vitriol until their voices are cracked and hoarse. “
They chant and spray paint “feds go home” as one of their slogans, and that could be easily achieved. If they could prove they wouldn’t destroy the courthouse, DHS personnel would go home. It is that simple.”
The DHS agent said many protesters are driven by hatred to rage against the police and federal agents.
“Some of the things screamed at us, ad nauseum…‘Go home! You're Nazis, racists, the Gestapo! F— you, f— your mom, you suck! Quit your job and go f— yourself! I'm going to get all your f—ing names! – Protestors yell at DHS Agents Click To Tweet
…the agent told CIS.
